Staffs Senior Cup. Admission 5/3. Programmes available. Crowd 124. (Official).

Stone O.A. 0 v 3 Stafford Rangers


A third minute goal when the defender attempted a goal line clearance but sliced the ball into the net and a decent finish on 20 gave the visitors a comfortable half time lead. However Stone had two good efforts just inches over the bar and another that hit the post as Rangers defending was a little haphazard at times.

Little to report of note in the second period, a header from Stone that hit the post and a third goal on 72 for the visitors. Rangers were the better side as you would expect but the scoreline was a little harsh on Stone.

.....First seriously chilly evening of the winter spent at Spa Road for...

Witham Town 0 v 4 Maldon & Tiptree United - Essex Senior Cup
Prog - 'Sorry No Programme Tonight' as per apologetic teen on gate. Teamsheet given freely out satisfied the paper craving* - Admission 8.00 - Att 55**

* Whether this will satisfy the ECFA officials present remains to be seen as ESC rule state that a prog must be produced and any miscreants will incur a fine. As an aside, you had to feel a degree of sympathy for the Witham official who was rushing around pre match single handedly carrying out match related duties.

** Virtually all visiting supporters wearing newly acquired merch and apparel with frequent mentions of their fifteen minutes of BBC 2 national fame against Newport

....The tendency of several games of late is to see horribly one sided contests and this was one of them with possession dominated throughout by the visitors with Witham barely having a shot on goal and at time seemingly in awe of their newly (but temporarily) famous opponents. Even with half of the team that started against Newport, unwell, having a rest or otherwise unavailable, the flow of the visitors seen which has been so apparent this season was very noticeable.

On occasion, the penetrative runs through a succession of weak challenges did not work as Kojo Awotwi's run down the right ended with the rashest of rash shots and as one stalwart remarked as 'one for the trains'. What turned out to be the only chance for the hosts arrived soon after as for the only occasion the visiting defence was stretched but Declan Nche shot tamely at Luke O'Reilly.

The evening was a personal triumph for one of the stars of the FA Cup run Daniel Parish who scored all four goals (in contrast Jerome Slew became largely anonymous and was substituted in the second half). The first in what was a hugely influential display was a perfectly flighted free kick over the Witham wall which found the net off the inside of the post. From thereon the only thing that was going to prevent the visitors passage to the ESC Quarter Final was the ebbing and flowing freezing fog which on occasion made vision difficult. Slew though could not join Parish on the scoresheet with three consecutive close range shots of which two were blocked by James Askew in the home goal and the middle attempt being cleared off the line by Liam Whipps and then wriggled into a small area of space but saw his rising shot clip the top of the bar.

No difference to the pattern of play during the second half and the lead was quickly doubled when an excellent cross from the exquisitely named Marley Marshall-Miranda was met by an equally excellent half volley from Parish from close range which left Askew statuesque. The visibility in the second half was becoming progressively worse and there were fears that the visitors evolving fixture pile up would continue to accumulate, though as is the way with fog it dispersed as quickly as it developed and by the end visibility had almost returned to normal.

In a one directional second half, two more goals for Parish. The first a penalty awarded after Martyn Stokes was felled just inside the penalty. Parish's penalty was as emphatic a finish as his other goals. To conclude Parish completed his haul with a cross from the right by Jess Norey being met by an perfectly executed cushioned side footed volley. The final minutes were almost entirely incident free as the sound of studs on an increasingly frozen surface resonated. Hardly surprising that the man in black concluded without playing any amount of stoppage time.

Thankfully, the Greater Anglia return service had it's heating setting set at Toastie in order to facilitate the thawing out process. Though delays on the Stratford approaches meant that the travel plans had to be slightly revised. Indoors through the frosty RM17 environs at 23.45....

Peterborough United 1 Ipswich Town 1 - ( Ipswich win 5 - 6 on penalty kicks) - thanks for spotting my mistake!
Leasing.com Trophy, 2nd Round
London Road

Admission: 10
Programme: 1
Attendance: 2310


Low crowd, two young teams but not a bad game - pretty even first half with Town going ahead first. second half and Town lose their skipper and most experienced player so end up defending most of the 45 minutes, home team on top but Ipswich hold on helped by some poor finishing by Peterborough.

Penalty kicks and for once Town come out on top.

Like timmy tabby, also at...

Witham Town 0-4 Maldon & Tiptree (HT: 0-1)
Essex Senior Cup 4th Round


An unsurprising defeat for Town.

From a Witham point of view the most entertaining part was the encroaching fog after Maldon's second goal that made the few of us behind the goal chant 'call it off, call it off.. etc. not that we were probably heard.
We wouldn't have won a replay anyway.

Admission was via season ticket.
