Old Parmiterians 2-5 Oxhey FC
Herts Co Div 1
F&N Att h/c 5


3G cage with no spectator facilities. The are floodlights, which were used for the last 20 or so mins of this 6:30 ko.
Oxhey had won 5-0 when these two teams met last Tue, so no surprise that they looked the better side and scored on 20, 29 (pen) and 48. Their keeper then handled a goal-bound shot outside the box on 51 mins and was red carded with OP's scoring direct from the free kick, the defender turned keeper looking unconvincing. The ten men scored a 4th midway through the half with OP'S pulling another back on 86. Things got a bit ill tempered late on and when the home keeper spilled a free kick to leave the away forward with a tap in on 90+1 the ref diplomatically called a halt to proceedings.

Wickhamford 4-2 Stratford HGC
Stratford Alliance Div 1
Attendance: 37
Admission: Free
Prog: £1

I had some doubts about this being played as I've found this league to be unreliable in the past and Stratford apparently couldn't raise a team for the original fixture a few weeks ago. Despite having about 80 players in their squad listing, they only managed 10 this evening. I suspect this included some who play for Stratford's Midland League side as, for a team that's bottom of the division, they looked pretty competitive and it was only later in the game that the home team began to dominate what was a good contest with some impressive goals.

Wickhamford were re-formed a couple of years ago but still play at Sally Close. It's a village sports ground but is a pretty good venue for this level as it's all neatly enclosed with not a great deal other than a single football pitch, play park, well-appointed bar and a car park. The pitch is something special though - looking across the pitch it rises, dips, rises, dips, and this continues to the other touchline. They call it the Wickhamford Wave.

No hot drinks inside the clubhouse unfortunately, but just outside was a patio with picnic tables from where a pile of about 30 programmes were available. Four pages on good quality glossy paper, it looked to be a regular issue and also included a lucky number for a raffle draw (prizes were £15 and a bottle of wine).

I spent the game having a pleasant chat to two hoppers from Leicestershire, though I'm sure a few more would have been present had the availability of a prog been known.

WILTS PREM LEAGUE

Kintbury Recreation Ground, Inkpen Rd KO 18:30 Unsure

Kintbury Rangers 3-2 Wroughton

Adm: n/n

Att: h/c 80 incl Mek from down Sarum way - who had turned up at the right time. Cool

Directions/Facilities: regular here - indeed was here only last August for one of their first matches of the season (looked it up: was their 2nd game H v Marlborough and KO'd at 19:30 Angelic) - out to M4 jn 13 down A34 to A4 west then signed south over Canal & Railway Line into town 2nd left into Inkpen Rd; ground down on the right behind Sports Centre.

Match: completely failed to pick up on the KO being brought forward to 18:30 - was posted up on twitter sometime yesterday PM; even though it was also posted on here earlier! BlushBlush

Arrived in time to see 2nd half (it is only about 30 mins away - but had I noticed I might have gone to Marlow, as I doubt I would have arrived in time for the start here anyway.)

Importance of the game somewhat dulled as Rangers had 1 pt deducted today for ineligible player - some were getting some stick about that from a local in the car park as they were out after the game taking the nets down. That meant they could no longer draw level with Wroughton, with a win here - which they just about managed - and another win at Purton this Thursday evening - indeed that match may be in some doubt now?

Visitors led 0-2 at HT - there had been some shenanigans over delayed substitutions during the first period apparently.

2nd half some bizarre defending and keeping allowed the hosts back into the game - 2 pens including one retake for the keeper being off the line and a comical og after what was described by my hopping colleague as a Lofthouse like challenge on the keeper - who dropped the ball onto the heel of his own CB and saw the ball trickle over the line.

Back home in time to avoid watching the Anfield massacre Shocked - fortunately my daughter decided to carry on watching something, so I hid in the study.

Southampton Saturday League Cup Final @ AFC Totton

Chamberlayne Ath 1 Alderbury 0

admission £5-00 inc informative programme, attendance est 80
1st v 3rd in SSL Senior
Close, well-fought final which could have gone either way. Most incident in the first half hour or so, always watchable after that as Alderbury put on the pressure in the second half.
In only the second minute Chamberlayne's C.Fielder let fly from 30 yards and Alderbury keeper Gillott watched it pass him, come off the top of the bar, then over. Soon afterwards he had to make a decent save from Hall. Down the other end now for a terrible mix-up between Chamberlayne keeper and defender, the latter passing straight to Alderbury's Scott, but Cummins managed to save it. A free-kick from Alderbury's R.Tutton then hit the outside of the post, and another free-kick soon after was deflected wide. From another Alderbury corner M.Tutton hit the outside of the post, too - three strikes against the woodwork in th e first 12 mins.... Chamberlayne came back and a good dribble by Beattie saw him felled (penalty shout) and A.Smith put the rebound wide. Osborne then beat his man well and produced a good shot, well saved by Gillott. After a few quieter moments, Alderbury's Scott was sent clear down the middle but his shot was well saved by Cummins. At the other end Penfold's deflected header was just over, and then on 32 mins we had the unusual sight nowadays of an indirect free-kick to Chamberlayne (for a high foot) inside the penalty area. The ball was played to Penfold who drilled it inside the post to give his team the lead. Osborne nearly extended the lead as he caught Gillott dithering but the ball went just wide. Le Mesurier also had a go from distance and was just over. HT 1-0. After the break Alderbury came out strongly and looked for an equaliser. A free-kick was missed by the defence and fell to M.Tutton at the far post but he headed over. Scott then went clean through but as had happened in the first half, Cummins made a good save. An unmarked D.Smith then headed an Alderbury free-kick wide. Penfold then produced a good shot for Chamberlayne but Gillott made a good full-length save. A superb through-ball then put D.Smith clear but an excellent last-ditch tackle from L.Fielder saved the day. Scott charged down a clearance as Cummins dithered but the ball went wide of the post. As we approached the end, sub Grant had a shot wide for Chamberlayne, and Higgins shot over for Alderbury, but that was it.
An impressive trophy was presented to the winners. AFC Totton's pitch looked totally different from the usual beach-like conditions in May, the arrival of Southampton Ladies has also brought about a decent pitch with plenty of grass. The rest of the ground hasn't changed. Good company, a reasonable game, and a chance to see Chamberlayne before they play in the Hampshire Premier next season - they should do OK. The match started six mins early, catching one or two people out Wink



If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.

Hereford 3 Ludlow Town 1

Old School Lane: Mid West Counties Female League

This evening’s match provided a relatively quick return to Old School Lane after having watched the Herefordshire FA Women’s Challenge Cup final here on Friday evening. This fixture would possibly be the last I would witness on natural turf before it is replaced in the off-season by an artificial surface. Hereford came into this evening’s match in fifth position in the league table having suffered a narrow 1-0 reverse on Sunday to leaders Cookley Sports in the league’s own Bill Allsopp Memorial Trophy final. Ludlow Town found themselves one place and three points behind their hosts in the league table and their previous outing resulted in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Hereford Lads Club in the aforementioned final at Old School Lane. Hereford’s first ever fixture in this league was the reverse match at Ludlow Town, back in early September, that resulted in a 2-0 victory for the Bulls.



The Bulls opened the scoring in the 16th minute when what appeared to be a cross from eh right side of the penalty area flew over the head of the Ludlow Town goalkeeper and into the far corner of the net. The lead was doubled four minutes before the interval when a direct free-kick from nearly 30 yards out flew over the head o the Salopians' custodian and under the crossbar to make the score 2-0. Hereford extended their advantage further in the 69th minute, with a goal similar to the opening strike, when a cross from an acute angle on the right-hand side of the penalty area drift over the head of the goalkeeper and found its way inside the far post. The visitors reduced the deficit with nine minutes remaining on the clock when a corner delivered from the left was headed past the Hereford goalkeeper at her near post.

Ipswich Town Women 8 Needham Market Women 0
Suffolk FA Cup Final
Portman Road


Admission: £6
Programme: £1
Attendance: 769


Decent crowd for the first of 6 finals being staged at Ipswich Town. Needham play a number of levels below Ipswich but matched Town for the first 27 minutes before going a goal behind, Ipswich then got on top and added a second in first half injury time.
Second half and Ipswich then took full control as fitness began to show and then in a purple patch they added 6 more as the gulf in class showed.
Needham kept going and found the next themselves in the last few minutes only to have it ruled offside.


Good game, but Ipswich and FA surprised by large crowd, turnstile operators had no change and only one refreshment bar open - hope it is better organised on Wednesday when Youngster and his crew turn up!

Hampshire FA Russell Cotes Cup Final @ Hurn Bridge
Christchurch 0-1 Sholing
Estimated headcount 260
Admission £6 - Programme £1

For a cup final it was a poor game littered with fouls injury stoppages. A Sholing defender was lucky only to receive a yellow card for nearly breaking a Christchurch players leg in a tackle early on which was worse than than one Tottenham's Juan Foyth got sent off for on Saturday. Neither team looked like breaking the deadlock and penalties looked a certainty as we entered into four minutes of injury time. Then a cross from the left to the far post was headed downwards towards goal by substitute Bradley Targett, who I was told by a Sholing fan is the younger brother of Southampton's Matt, and the ball bounced over veteran keeper Max Frampton and into the net. Seen Sholing five times now this season and, their Hampshire Senior Cup quarter-final win over Cherries aside, haven't ripped up any trees in the games I saw them. Targett also scored the only goal, a spectacular strike, when I saw them win the league title in an equally poor game at neighbours Hamble Club so he might have a bright future ahead of him and the Boatmen will surely want to keep hold of him when they return to Step 4 next season.

South Wales Alliance Division 1

Garw 4-2 Cwm Welfare
Admission £2, no cuddling material
No refreshments
H/C 48


Cwm bottom of the table with 0 points going into this their final game of the season, started with 11 outfield players on the pitch (keeper running late) make shift keeper didn't even have any gloves initially and Garw 1-0 up inside 2 minutes. And home side peppered away at goal with the makeshift keeper looking fairly competent.

Away gk turned up after 15 minutes and the home side continued to dominate and miss chance after chance including hitting him from a yard out twice - but at ht it was still only 1-0.

4 mins into 2nd half must to the surprise of everyone Cwm equalised with a towering header and for next 10 mins or so we had an equal contest.

Garw couldn't score from 2 yards out, but they regained the lead just after the hour with a corner going straight in. 2 minutes later it was 3-1 and on 75 minutes 4-1. Credit to Cwm who kept battling pulling another goal back from the spot 5 minutes from time.

So not only a wonderful venue which just has to be seen to be believed, a highly memorable game spent in the company of Villan and Scott Struthers down from Hamilton for a work meeting in Cardiff.

SPFL Championship Play off Semi Final 1st Leg
Raith Rovers v Forfar Athletic, 2-1, H.T. 1-1, Att 2007 (316 Forfarians), Admission £10, Programme £2, Steak Pie and Coffee £3.80
At Stark’s Park

Initially undecided between this and Edinburgh City v Clyde, my mind was made up by the pricing policy of the home clubs. Raith cut their admission to a tenner; City upped theirs from £12 to £14. Stuff them.

First legs of Play Offs can be cagey affairs but this was no such thing. Both teams clearly wanted to win and we got an open game with decent chances at both ends. Rovers took the lead, slightly against the runb of play, when League One’s top scorer Kevin Nisbet rose to head in a Crane cross around the half hour. Forfar were level quickly when former Rovers John Baird blasted in a postage stamp effort from 25 yards. He did enjoy it and celebrated quite magnificently in front of the Rovers fans.

Raith were playing an unfamiliar 3-5-2 formation and it eventually paid off for them. They were winning a lot of possession and made it count when Hibs loanee Jamie Gullan fired in a low shot off the post to make it 2-1. The second half was fairly robust with some very interesting and unusual tackling and several outbreaks of handbags to keep the fans entertained.

Raith have some outstanding individuals in their team but I thought Forfar probably had the better team overall. It should make for an interesting second leg at the Bridiedome on Saturday.

Good turn out of fans from Forfar who were housed in the Railway Stand which seems to be the norm for most games at the San Starko these days. The home support was also up a bit but it is a hard task to tempt people along on a cold night, at three days notice with Champions league football on the tv. I was in the main stand, huddled at the back to keep out of the biting wind and driving rain.

All credit to the Rovers for getting a full programme out st short notice – it is full of interesting and original material.

No pints as I had taken the car and was also on verbal warning following the excesses of the previous afternoon and evening.

Re: [splodge] Tue 7th May [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

.......The end of the season is approaching, but in the meantime there are still Cup Finals to attend....

Ashford Town (Middx) 1 v 2 Uxbridge - Middlesex Charity Cup Final
Prog 16 pages* - Admission £10.00 - Att in the region of 225 (Ramsgate Estimate)

*Gratis with admission but with a St Lukes Hospice collection bucket along side. In accordance with the rules of financial transparency, I can confirm that 2 pound coins were contributed.

....One of those contests that you wished that the opening burst that occurred over the first half hour was replicated over the remainder of the match, however clear that the end of the season had caught up with many of the players and after a thoroughly entertaining and open first minutes, the remainder was less watchable.

Both teams very much attack oriented from the start and the surprising aspect was that neither net bulged in the opening minutes. Plenty of chances predominantly for Ashford, though McCarthy in the Uxbridge goal who either looked uncomfortable fumbling free kicks or far more confident pushing away a goal bound effort from Bitmead was the primary reason why Ashford did not take the lead. Tobin between the posts for Ashford had a less busy time but still managed to react quickly to push away a fierce attempt by Watkins.

After the initial attacking activity, the contest became more subdued but was temporarily enlivened by two goals just before half time that gave the mistaken impression that the second half was going to be a continuation of the early minutes. Ashford in front with one of those goals that creates the 'who scored' conundrum. Bitmead took aim through a crowded penalty area and his shot was then cleverly 'stepped over' by Baigent who may or may not have obtained the faintest of touches. McCarthy half saved but the final touch was by Poley but the video link from the Ashford Twitter was inconclusive as to whether the ball was over the line when Poley obtained his touch. No doubts with the Uxbridge leveller minutes after with a perfectly flighted cross from Pink and M'Bengui's downward header was beyond the reach of Tobin.

Gradually through the second half midfield morass, Uxbridge obtained a slight advantage, though few if any clear cut opportunities to take the lead with Tobin having to make saves classified this end as being no more than routine from M'Bengui and Maguire. What turned out to be the Uxbridge winner was well worth the cross London trip, well constructed with a defence piercing through ball from R Stefanoiaca and a sublime deft finish from Pink wide of the advancing Tobin. The extra time spectre gave distinct signs of being present in the latter stages as Ashford poured forward in numbers but Whorms spectacularly cleared off the line from Cottee and despite the fact that a number of stoppages meant that the additional minutes totalled 8, extra time did not materialise due to vigorous Uxbridge defending and some clear trips to the far corner to deplete the minutes remaining. The tendency of Ashford to cheaply lose possession in the final minutes did not assist them either.

With it's level of suburban efficiency and from a totally selfish perspective the ease in getting to, Reynolds Field was an ideal venue for this final. Just a few minutes walk from Perivale LU which with an efficient Central Line was reached in barely an hour from E14. Not so efficient on the return leg, however a rare Central Line to DLR transfer at Bank ensured a timely Grays bound train was intercepted and arrival back to the abode was 20 minutes earlier than anticipated.....

Match: completely failed to pick up on the KO being brought forward to 18:30 - was posted up on twitter sometime yesterday PM; even though it was also posted on here earlier! BlushBlush

Arrived in time to see 2nd half (it is only about 30 mins away - but had I noticed I might have gone to Marlow, as I doubt I would have arrived in time for the start here anyway.)

You didn't miss much.

Holmer Green 0-1 Aston Clinton
Wycombe Senior Cup Final


Played at Marlow, one noticeable change at the ground is that it no longer houses the local police station. They've now moved out to a new building nearby. The usual cafe was closed today, but plenty served from under a gazebo erected next to it.

Holmer Green had the ball in the net within a minute, but narrowly offside. They did have the better of the early play, but Aston Clinton got into the game and created most chances. Holmer Green did force one good save out of the Aston Clinton keeper, shortly before (I think) the one goal came direct from a corner. The keeper did get a hand to it, but only succeeded in assisting it crossing the line. Thereafter, the best chances fell to Aston Clinton, and they deserved the win. Holmer Green had a player sent off late on, but by then it wasn't going to make much difference.

Also at Garw & it did not disappoint. Wonderful venue to enjoy a game of football & thankfully the weather behaved as well it being a dry & bright evening. Anyone who has not visited should definitely make the effort. Good company tonight from Splodge & good to meet SS from Hamilton.


The game was also very watcheable. I collected team details 1-11 & at KO visitors obviously had a scratch side out. I think there was 10 outfield players one of whom eventually pulled a keepers jersey over his shirt before I noted what number. As game started I noted number 12 was playing & nos. 4 & 10 were missing. As Splodge reports hosts scored on 2 mins & I think we all then waited for an avalanche of goals. However the keeper for visitors replaced temp keeper on 15 who had performed competently & it was still 1-0 with the temp keeper then revealing his outfield shirt & joined their midfield. He was number 7 which made 2 of them on the pitch!!! No one seemed to mind & on we went. Garw contrived to hit keeper from 2 yards out twice rather than back of net. I am sure keeper knew little about either effort. At ht CW brought on 4 presumably a late arrival & amazingly visitors equalised a good header from 2 who had been playing up front from start. It was a fairly even game now &CW not playing like a side with a goals record of circa 20 for & 200+ against. However normal order was slightly restored with 2 in 2 mins from Garw just after the hour the 1st direct from a corner curling high inside far post. It was 4-1 on 75 & then 7 was subbed on 80 being replaced by 17. This 7 was the initial temp keeper leaving the other 7 still on the pitch to slot home a consolation penalty for visitors on 85. I do not think I have seen players with same number shirt in same side before. All good fun & I felt I got good value for my 2 quid. No programme tonight but I got an issue from 2016/17 season gratis. It was also good to speak with Ray Smiles 84 year old president of Garw. He was collecting gate at entrance & recently got a gong to reward his services to Welsh sport.


Great evening out at an iconic venue & no traffic issues either way.

Myself and many of the Ashford contingent would beg to differ. A horrible journey in the rush hour - it took me 70 minutes to drive the 13 miles - and others took at least 55 minutes. No complaints about the result, though - Ashford should have been two or three up before Uxbridge equalised and they were the better side thereafter.

BELFORD XI 9-1 BERWICK SENIORS
(Berwick Charities Cup Group A)

@ The Stanks, Berwick upon Tweed
Adm: gave a donation to the charities
Att: probably peaked at around 70ish

Finished the first full day of a weeks holiday in Berwick with a ten minute walk to The Stanks for the opening game in this years competition.

The Stanks is a football pitch with the town walls as the back drop. If looking on Google maps, search for Berwick Bowls Club and it just over the road. All games in the competition are played at this venue.

The game was very one sided with the average age of Belford being half that of their opponents. Pretty much one way traffic from the start, though it was only 2-1 @ half time. It should have been more were it not for some dubious offside decisions. The referee also allowed a lot challenges to go unpunished which annoyed both sides.

Decent entertainment on a very cold evening.
