Wiltshire Sunday Cup
Lye Field, Seend
FC North Wiltshire 0 Croft Juniors 2
F&N Attendance: 5

Home team in the Chippenham & District and the visitors in the Swindon league. I saw Croft demolish Lacock last season on home turf and they played well here too and should have won by more.
Occasional passages of good play, the match was more of a slog on a playable but heavy pitch; we had 15 minutes of heavy rain during the game but it was just damp for the remainder.
Croft scored on 5 and 82 to put the game to bed; both sides generated several chances however all had left their shooting boots at home.
My first Sunday league sin-binning as well; a Croft player was the recipient. I always enjoy these encounters; this was Plan B, Plan A was postponed at Durrington to watch Amesbury Juniors due to waterlogging. Home in 5 afterwards.

White Ensign A-A Wroxham
£6 entry
Played at Great Wakering Rover

Match abandoned after 60 minutes due to floodlight failure. Wroxham were winning 3-0 although how White Ensign failed to score goodness only knows. After 60 minutes the floodlights failed and the referee had no option other than to abandon the game as the light was failing rapidly. My first ever match abandoned due to floodlight failure.

Burton & District Division 3. KO 10:30. (F&N). Crowd 10.

Kings Head 9 v 1 Acorn Albion

Kings Head are 2nd in the league, the only club in this division with a 100% record. The visitors had 4 points from their 2 games. The park is located in the village and has a grass bank behind the goal. There are changing rooms but no other furniture.

Kings Head scored twice in the first 12 minutes and again ten minutes before half time. The visitors scored shortly before the break to go in just 2 behind. A couple of early 2nd half goals ended any chance of a comeback and when the home side made several substitutions it looked as though the game would peter out. Unusually it seemed to supply added impetus and four more goals were scored. Nice to watch a game in the dry with some sunshine.

Alfreton QTS Sunday Division1. KO14:00. (F&N). Crowd 16.

Boot 3 v 2 Breadsall


Match played at Swanwick Park, two pitches there and it was good to see that the grass had been cut. Playing condition was soft but fine. Two games in progress, the other was in div 2. Changing rooms but no other football furniture.

Boot are 2nd in the table and unbeaten, the visitors 9th (of 11). Best possible start for a game like this, with the referee awarding the visitors a penalty after 5 minutes, duly converted. Boot bounced back to lead 2-1 at the interval but could only add a single goal kicking up the slight slope in the 2nd half. Breadsall added their second with 15 minutes to go but couldn't find another to get a point they would have deserved. Dry and sunny like the morning game, pleasant day out all in all.

Hereford Lads Club 11 Areley Kings 0

Hereford Leisure Centre: Midwest Counties Female League

The home team were playing their first match for three weeks, when they enjoyed an 11-0 home victory over Welland, but still remained top of the table prior to kick-off. Areley Kings found themselves just inside the bottom half of the league despite enjoying a 4-0 home success over basement club Meadow Park last weekend. This match, like the last few home fixtures, was played at nearby Hereford Leisure Centre because the new 3G pitch at the County Ground is not yet available. I understand that the size of the playing area does not meet the minimum criteria despite the previous grass pitch having been lengthened a few years ago. One of the outer pitches at Hereford Leisure Centre was used this afternoon, which has no cover, dugouts or perimeter, rather than floodlit pitch inside the athletics track once used by Pegasus Juniors prior to moving to their current home at Old School Lane.

The hosts were already leading 3-0 when I arrived 15 minutes into the match before Sarah Bishop increased the advantage on the half-hour mark when she latched on to a through ball before sliding it past the goalkeeper. Amy Bradley concluded the first-half scoring in stoppage time when her close range effort from a cross was blocked by the goalkeeper but was alert enough to turn home the rebound. The lead was extended four minutes after the interval when the ball was forced home from a corner by Bishop to complete her treble before she latched on to a 52nd minute through ball before running in on goal and placing the ball between the legs of the Areley Kings custodian. A cross from out on the right touchline was headed down by striker Roxy Dinescu and Bishop was on hand to stab the loose ball over the line on the hour mark. Sharlene Watkins fired in a low drive four minutes later following another cross from the right. Dinescu latched on to well-timed pass in the 69th minute to run in goal and find the net before repeating the feat with a similar goal 15 minutes to complete the scoring.

Thornbury T 1-3 Cribbs (AET)
FA Vase 2
Att 222 Adm+Prog 5 Coffee 1


Folloed the club's twitter advice & parked in a (free) public car park nearby, although it appears I got the last space at 2:15, having left as late as possible in view of the 11am inspection.

Ground inside a recreation park with a 50-seat stand in one corner the only cover (left hand end out of bounds) - hardstanding elsewhere - fortunately it stayed dry. Clubhouse/tea bar on site.

Cribbs always seemed in control without having much cutting edge. They took the lead with a straightforward header from a corner on 61 mins. Thornbury equalised out of the blue with a 25-yarder into the bottom corner on 83, almost their only dangerous attack in the game.

So on to ET and Cribbs in front aghain within a minute when a low cross from the right was turned in at close range, possibly by a home defender. They added a third on 118 mins with the home team pushing forward and caught 1v2 at the back.

Remarkably little traffic back for a Sunday evening - having asked my other half to delay dinner until 20:45 due to the ET, home at 20:20 despite going the wrong way to the M5, getting on at 14 instead of 15, adding at least 8 miles to the journey. .

....And another at the truncated Vase proceedings of....

White Ensign 0 v 3 Wroxham
Prog 16 pages 1.00 - Admission 6.00 - Att 96

...Which by our groups calculations lasted just under 75 minutes before the lights went off in unison. There was just about 16 minutes worth of light available in this time, but with the man in black (correctly) erring on the side of caution to assess the situation and ascertain whether the lights could be brought back on, the delay meant that the remaining 16 minutes would have been played in semi darkness. A rematch looks likely, though from this angle, I would fathom that Wroxham would be reluctant to make the trip on Wednesday, meaning the re staging would be deferred to next Saturday,

Prior to the failing illuminations, the difference between the teams was that one could direct the ball between the sticks and the other could not. There was a fairly obvious difference in quality between the two teams seen especially in the distribution from midfield from the likes of Harley Black and one of two former Premiership players starting for the visitors in the form of Simon Lappin. The other of the former Premiership duo was Grant Holt and even though he is lacking in pace he does have a certain level of ability that is rarely if ever seen at this level. This was shown with his contribution to the opening Wroxham goal with Holt's adept header across the face of the goal from Lappin's deeo cross being perfect for Shaun Taylor to hook in from close range.

For most of the first half in terms of chances, the teams were evenly matched, as Ollie Sutton in the Wroxham goal reacted quickly to push a free kick from Brett Munyard, before the two missed opportunities which showed the differences in front of goal. The first saw a deep cross from Munyard which found it's way through to Luke Skinner who had acres of space and a surplus of time but inextricably angled wide. There was a worse miss on the horizon when Sutton was completely out of position from a cross from Connor Barnby bur with the net gaping in front he headed wide.

Crucial first period misses which were then punished in the second half by two further Wroxham goals which once again showed the differences in ability in the final third. Firstly a long ball threaded through the home defence saw Charlie Clarke accelerate past a slow reacting home defence (though their calls that Clarke was marginally offside at the applicable time would have merited a VAR referral if it had been available) and he expertly placed past James Parkins in the home goal. Just after Holt went very close to ending the match as a meaningful contest with an angled drive past the far post the visitors scored their third with a deep cross from the left from Travis Dodsworth just being too high for Andy George to head away but was an ideal height for Clarke to head accurately just inside the far post.

The visitors were just starting to wind down proceedings when the lights
malfunctioned and after a few minutes the whistle was blown signalling the end of the contest, though it must be stated that the hosts are extremely fortunate to be gifted a second opportunity.

Good social occasion with visitors from neighbouring counties, one of whom has a dilemma as his rules do not count abandoned games and which will necessitate a further visit to Burroughs Park. Also in total contrast to the previous days wind n' rain, it was a much more pleasant day which meant a pleasant walk out from Shoebury along with the also present Mr Druryszki. The walking option over an unlit footpath was not a viable option for the return journey, therefore it was the penultimate bus (Service 4A) of the day out of Great Wakering back to Shoebury Station. All connections ran to plan and indoors at 18.30...

This is not the Leicester side that I had come to know and love over the last couple of years.......... the one that made even Christian Benteke look like a decent striker. Bring back Claude Puel, I say.

Chichester City Ladies 2-4 Watford @ Oaklands Park 3pm k.o....Adm 4....Prog 1.

Had a look at the Vase fixtures before heading the 20 or so miles East along the A27. The mens game at Oaklands was postponed yesterday but the pitch looked in fine fettle today.

With Chichester joint bottom with just one point and Watford sitting second in the League I was expecting a one sided affair.

Watford duly scored in the 3rd minute but Chi levelled a minute later.Chi scorned anther chance a minute later when the ball was fired over with only the Watford keeper to beat.

The expected one sided game had turned into a decent game.

Chi then took the lead on 28 mins with a cross come shot from the by line....excellent finish either way. Watford levelled when the Chi No 20 under hit a back pass to her keeper.Watford No 10 intercepted and fired home to make things all square at the break.

After the restart,Watford took the lead on 51 mins before hitting the bar on 66 mins. The games final goal came on 72 mins when No14 cut inside a defender and curled a shot in at the far post.Watford again came close on 87 mins when they rattled the post.

A pretty decent game with Chichester proving stubborn opponents especially early on.

I wasn't at the match and so can't comment on how much daylight was available, but the referee could have continued the game and then abandoned it later if necessary, instead of wasting time by discussing it.

Also at Thornbury, game well summed up pokal02. Despite the left hand end being out of bounds one could easily watch the game from there behind the mesh fence and behind the far side where a slight grass slopes lets you see over the heads of spectators inside the ground. The public toilets inside the ground look as if they would be open to park users most of the time when they don't need to take a gate for the football and the large clubhouse looks as if it was once the park house. Next to the car park inside the entrance is another pitch railed off on one side which is presumably home to the reserves in Bristol & District League Division 2 or, if they use the main ground, the A team in Division 5. This match was the second part of a double for me, like Digdagdog I was at a Wiltshire Sunday Cup tie at 1030:

Durrington Club 1-2 PSV Swindon (played at Enford Recreation Ground)
Headcount 27 - F + N


Original choice was Netheravon Wanderers, who lost 1-5 to Old Road just two miles away, until finding out that Durrington Club were playing their home tie at Enford, whose own team disappeared in 2014 and AFAIK no other adult team plays here. Durrington usually play their home games at Bulford but as Bulford WMC were also home in the same cup (a no show from visitors FC Trowbridge gave them a walkover win) and Amesbury Juniors (whose home tie was rained off) have sole tenancy of Durrington Rec, another venue had to be found and this is a lovely setting on the edge of Salisbury Plain and well worth visiting if it gets used again. No worries about waterlogging, despite all the rain over the weekend the pitch was in fine condition perhaps aided by not being used much and by the considerable side to side slope enhancing the hill views to the west. The village Hall provides an elevated covered overhang behind the goal to the north, a farmers field to the east and behind the south goal where a few stray balls were unable to be retrieved after wayward shots due to the electric fence. Being close to MOD land, gunshots could be heard from the nearby firing range. On the pitch, the hosts seemed in control in the first half and took the lead when their #3 saw the keeper off his line and lobbed him from 50 yards out. The visitors, who had just the bare 11 (no subs) hardly threatened the hosts goal until late in the half but were still in the game just a goal down and a more positive start to the second half saw them grab a deserved equalizer in the 55th minute with a low 20 yard drive from their #11 which nestled in the bottom corner to the keeper's right. The winner came in the 75th minute when the exposed keeper's attempted clearance was charged down by the visiting striker who tapped into an empty net. More late drama was to follow as the hosts were awarded a penalty with three minutes remaining only for their striker to hit the spot kick over the bar. At this point it started to rain for the first time during the whole match so in some ways a relief to avoid extra time.
