FA Vase 2QR: Runcorn Linnets FC 4-0 Bacup Borough; Att: 120 (est based on h/c); Admission: 5.50; Programme: 1.20

I have now seen four teams stage home games at Wincham Park- Witton Albion, Northwich Vics, Congleton Town and Runcorn Linnets. This Vase tie was a bit of a damp squib as Bacup faded alarmingly after a bright start when they hit the post. Once Linnets took the lead they were in control of a largely disappointing cup tie played on a beautiful sunny afternoon. After beating Cammell Laird in the FA Cup I was expecting more of a Bacup side that has been drastically re-shaped and based on FC United's reserve team of last season- but Linnets look a decent side who play good football and have an outstanding young goalkeeper.

Many posters have commented on Wincham Park before- we know it's a bland, featureless ground on an industrial estate but there were compensations- the carparking and access were easy and the catering first class while the programme was a typically good effort, too. The Runcorn fans who have stuck together to keep the club going are a friendly bunch and I hope that one day they attain their goal of moving back to the town. In the meantime Wincham Park easily meets their requirements and with the whole ground open it made for a relaxing afternoon in the sunshine on a quite superb playing surface.

Bookham 3 Frimley Green 3 (FA Vase2nd Qualifying Round) Aet
Admission 6 Prog. 1 Att.56 (h/c)

Not quite as good a game as the scoreline suggests, but still a very eventful one apart from a dull first 15 minutes.
Frimley Green a division below Bookham took the lead after 18 minutes with a spectacular goal from Shannon, the home side equalised through a Piercy penalty in the 31st minute. In the second-half Woodward put Bookham into the lead. Things looked even worse for Frimley when Grace was sent-off in the 72nd minute. (a fall from Grace was one of the comments from the assorted hoppers). Bookham had many chances to make it 3-1 before and after the red card, but profligacy in front of goal was to prove their undoing. The Frimley keeper almost equalised from a corner,then 4 minutes into injury-time Peters scored with a rocket from 25 yards.
And so to extra-time. Piercy scored again for Bookham following a defensive error and a miskick from a team-mate. Frimley again equalised when a Peters free-kick took a wicked deflection. The replay is next Tuesday.
Incidentally due to the vagaries of rail fares it cost me less to get to Dorking than it would to go to a game in London using a travelcard.

Erith & Belvedere 7 Sidlesham 0 (FA Vase 2nd Qualifying Round) Admission 7 (Though I was on a freebie Wink) Programme 1.50
With the Manager and `Star` player turning up 5 minutes after the game kicked off Sidlesham were always going to be up against it, as it was they held out for nearly 30 minutes before conceding and going into the break 0-2 Down. Second Half was all One way traffic and the only surprise is that Erith only got Seven. I guess it was too easy in the end as Erith were just hitting shots at will some so far off target they didn`t seem to bother taking aim in the First place!

Two completely contrasting games in the FAI Junior Cup in Dublin :

1100 Valley Park United 0 Booth Road Celtic 0 AET (4-2 on pens.) Crowd Est 16
Typical of several housing estate "village greens" in Dublin - enclosed from the road by a rail with hard standing being provided by the footpaths. Absolutely dreadful game, not helped by an appalling bobbly pitch with grass which was far too long and meant a lot of passes stopped short. Throw in a pernickety referee, the usual standard of Irish finishing, a visiting keeper who played a blinder and my uncanny knack of finding 0-0's in the unlikeliest and the result was inevitable. You have to feel sorry for Booth Road, though, as they are three divisions below their AUL Premier B hosts.

1430 St Kevin's Boys 4 Ashbourne United 0 Crowd Est 35
What a difference. Superbly presented enclosed ground tucked in amongst houses on an estate not far north of the Whitehall ground of Home Farm/defunct Dublin City. Railed on two sides with a wall at one end and an artficial pitch (currently being relaid) at the other. Pitch was perfect, and evenly and properly cut; goalposts and what looked like new nets were Persil white and an excellent match ensued. Although the Premier A home side won comfortably in the end, Premier B Ashbourne United (and a more sensible referee) contributed to a very entertaining game and I was able to get back into Dublin just ahead of the hordes from the GAA All Ireland Final at Croke Park, in which Tyrone beat Kerry in case anybody wants to know .....

Scottish Football League Div 2

Ayr United 1-1 Brechin City

Att: 1317

Admission 12
Programme: 2

A classic old style ground with covered terrracing behind both goals, open terrace on one side and a stand on the other. It looks like they planned move is now on a backburner and I wouldn't be surprised if the H&SE stop people standing behind both goals as the roofs have seen better days.

With parking at the ground minimal, Mad Mick & I parked up at the Racecourse 5 minutes walk away. Plenty of parking there and the floodlights visible. As you enter Ayr the Racecourse is well signposted.

An enjoyable game against the sides 1st v 2nd prior to Saturdays matches.

First half, Brechin were well organised and easily soaked up the home sides possession and broke away and had 3 great opportunities before finally putting the ball away. It was something of a shock when Ayr equalised from nothing shortly before half time.

2nd half saw Ayr dominate possession even more and create a few half chances but City still looked the more dangerous going for goal and they really should have won it in the last minute with a Ronnie Rosenthal moment.
