Mid Wales League Division One
Montgomery Town 0-4 Llanidloes Town
Admission £3, No paper, Att: 140 (H/C)

Something of a local derby on the opening day of the Mid Wales League season. A comfortable win for the visitors, in a game that featured bright sunshine and torrential rain at various times.

First half goals after 10, 24 and 31 minutes threatened a rout, but the home side eventually dragged themselves back into the game and had a couple of chances towards the end of the first half. The second half was quite even, but Llanidloes scored a fourth on 87 minutes.

There is hard standing on all four sides, with a stand capable of seating circa 100 on the side nearest the entrance.

Radnor Valley 0 Llandrindod Wells 2

School Lane: MMP with Norman Lloyd Mid Wales League First Division

The MMP with Norman Lloyd Mid Wales League kicked-off this evening with three fixtures across the league’s two divisions. Radnor Valley have traditionally commenced the season on a Friday evening, since joining the top-flight of the league three years ago, due to the New Radnor carnival taking place in the village tomorrow. The Goats had been preparing for their first competitive fixture under the management of former referee Rob Evans following former player/manager Paul Morgan moving to nearby Kington Town at the conclusion of last season. The home club’s squad appears to have not changed greatly over the course of the summer but the Greens did lose a handful of players since last season. The New Radnor men had enjoyed a successful pre-season campaign, winning all three of the warm-up matches they played, against Presteigne St Andrews, Rhayader Town and Wellington Reserves. The Goats made a strong start to last season’s league campaign before eventually finishing in mid-table and reaching the Radnorshire Cup final for a second consecutive season. Local rivals Llandrindod Wells would provide a tough challenge for Radnor Valley in this local derby encounter. The Spa Men had finished just above their hosts in the First Division table last term and had shared the honours with the Goats in their league meetings. The Broadway club had experienced some mixed results in their pre-season campaign but one of their last outings resulted in victory over Herefordshire FA County League Premier Division club Kington Town.

The home team started this evening's league opener with ten men in the starting line-up and no substitutes on the bench. Despite this, the Goats made a positive start to this local derby, with youngster Ben Warn making his debut in goal for the Goats. Joey Price saw his 20 yard free-kick turned behind for a corner inn the 13th minute before Craig Pigott was unable to convert a low cross across the face of the Llandrindod Wells goal just a minute later. However, it was the Spa Men that broke the deadlock for the penalty spot in the 19th minute after the referee deemed a Radnor Valley player had tripped an opponent in the penalty area.The visitors came close to doubling their advantage eight minutes later with a free-kick from the edge of the penalty area. That was a warning shot to Rob Evans' charges as the Broadway club did find the back of the net for a second time courtesy of a low free-kick from the edge of the Goats' penalty area. Radnor Valley forward Joey Price was unable too keep his 25 yard free-kick down seven minutes after the interval before before Iuean Price headed over at the far post from a cross on the right in the 62nd minute. Inbetween this, Ben Warn was rounded on the hour mark but the Llandrindod Wells attacker was unable to find the target from a very tight angle. Warn was called into action when he palmed away a header from a deep free-kick pumped into the penalty area before seeing the loose ball headed over the crossbar. Joey Price displayed a moment of magic in the 73rd minute to cut in from the corner flag but saw his low drive turned behind by Joe Prosser. Jack Price curled an effort wide of the far post from a quickly-taken free-kick six minutes later but the New Radnor men were unable to find a way back into this local derby during the closing stages.

Again I couldn't post this 1st attempt as it advised me I was banned again.

The Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round
Hackney Wick 1 (8)
Framlingham Town 3 (1:44, 27 & 64)
KO: 20:00 Att: 159 h/c Cost: £7 despite FT twitter advising £6 Progs available

Venue: Framlingham Town FC, The Sportsfield, Badingham Road, Framlingham

Match:
Light rain for part of the journey. A mile before Fram there was a deluge which stopped close to the ground. Just before ko until 5 mins into the game was a heavy shower & a couple of other showers in 1st half. Not as mild as forecast as it felt quite cool. A slight breeze as well.

Entertaining 1st half with HW working the gk inside a minute before FT scored. When HW equalised on 8mins. I was thinking about a repeat of FT’s 5-5 draw with Ipswich Wanderers on Tuesday. FT regained the lead when the attacker was challenged by the gk but the ball found its way into the net. HW finished the half well although FT had a great chance on 47+mins but the shot went wide. Shots 8-9.

No clubhouse pitchside. H/t lasted over 16mins although FT were ready a lot earlier.

FT took control this half. A bundled effort blocked on the line & the rebound was shot wide. Another chance missed on 60mins when the side netting was hit. A free kick saw a free header for the FT’s 3rd goal. Soon after HW had a chance but it was blazed over. FT should’ve added to the scoreline with gk pulling off three decent saves with the last one on 91+mins receiving applause from a number of spectators. Shots 3-13. Framlingham now travel to Basildon Utd in the next round.

HW had a strange shirt which looked white with a very pale orange pattern. I watched parts of the game with former poster Chorley….(some numbers)

Lowther Road

Admission: £6 Paper available Attendance: 183

Blustery conditions with sharp showers. A pitch railed on 3 sides, the fourth side being the cricket square. Small seated Atcost style stand and a couple of dugouts opposite the cricket field. Brand new lights (very bright) meant for an entertaining Friday night's footy.
The home side won this with two good strikes, one in each half; the away side had their chances but were thwarted by some excellent 'keeping and goal-line defending.
You can park pitch-side and because of the conditions I was considering watching it from there but I spied Spitfire Dave of these parts and so left the car for some pitch-side nattering. A very good evening all-in-all and a nice tick.

FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round - Skelmersdale United 1 Penistone Church 1 (played at Prescot Cables) - Admission £6 - Programme £2 - Attendance 99

An unscheduled match for me, which came about due to a couple of circumstances. Firstly, this looked to be a rare football free weekend due to a family wedding in Manchester, but when my son broke the news to me earlier in the week that he had secured a ticket for the Liverpool v Norwich match, this gave me the ideal opportunity of some Friday night football too. The journey up was long and tedious with numerous delays on the M1 and M6, which meant the trip up took close on 6 hours, which is completely ridiculous. A detour off the M6 and my son was dropped off at Warrington and he got the train across to Liverpool whilst I then delivered the rest of the family to our hotel to the north of Manchester and then I went back on the M62 and arrived at Prescot Cables ground at 7.0. It appears that Skem could soon be returning back to the town, which I’m sure will mean that crowds will be larger than tonight’s. This was a revisit for me, having been here for an FA Trophy match a couple of seasons ago.

This looked a decent tie with teams from the two sides of the Pennines facing each other and from different leagues, which is always welcome in the early stages of the cup. Fortunately the weather was nowhere near as bad as forecast, with the rain mainly keeping away and the predicted wind not arriving either. Not sure that matches played on Saturday in 50 mile an hour gusts will turn out to be much fun at all, if the forecasts are right. Mind you, I was surprised to see that the cricket tonight at Old Trafford was abandoned without a ball being bowled so maybe we just struck lucky.

On to the match and the first half can be described as uneventful and I dropped my son a text at the break asking if we could see a fraction of the action that he had witnessed at Anfield. The second half was a completely different ball game and it was a half that just got better and better and it was a real shame when the final whistle went. Skem took the lead just before the hour when a long clearance from keeper, Ben Barnes caught the Penistone defence in two minds and they hesitated leaving Joe Cawley time to chip the keeper from just inside the area. Cawley wasn’t on the teamsheet at all with the number 10 down as Einar White, but both clubs twitter feeds have given the goal to Cawley so I can only assume it was a late change or a misprint on the teamsheet. The visitors equalised on 75 minutes when a Nathan Keightley cross from the right was superbly turned home by substitute Shaun Mundy. Both sides went for the win and PC keeper, Chris Snaith made two excellent saves to keep the score at 1–1, but in the final seconds of stoppage time, PC won a free kick in a dangerous position and the delivery found Brett Lovell in the box and he proceeded to hit the underside of the bar with the ball bouncing out to safety as the referee blew for time.

So, a replay back over in South Yorkshire on Wednesday after the proverbial game of two halves.

I was able to attend this game after kick off was brought forward to noon. In a game of very few chances the only goal came from a ridiculous attempt to push a shot wide with his shoulder by the NC goalkeeper, the ball just deflected in to the net.

...If all FA Cup matches over the next 9 months are as exciting as this, then we are in for a vintage season....

Woodford Town 1 V 1 White Ensign - FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round
Prog 16 pages £1.00 - Admission £7.00 - Att 281

....A plethora of superlatives in this contests direction, thoroughly entertaining, full of attacking play and played in a surprisingly cordial Essex manner to name a few. The general consensus was how we arrived at the end of the match with just the two goals scored.

This was the visitors first ever FA Cup match and the hosts first for 32 years and clear that the 'magic of the cup' enhanced both teams play, however after hitting the woodwork on 4 separate occasions and going close on numerous other occasions, it was clear that the concept of good fortune had deserted the visitors. After a superb ESL start with 2 wins and scoring 9 goals in the process, I was a little disappointed by Woodford and they were probably surprised by the intensity of the visitors play and the thought that they make steal a late winner never looked materialising as most of the final minutes was played almost exclusively in the home half.

As was seen 7 days previously at Parkside, White Ensign clearly like playing on a 4g surface which suits their quick passing approach. We did in fact have a quite tentative opening, however a moment of hesitancy from the home defence allowed Buffin to angle a pass to Barmby and a perfect touch to take Reed in the home goal out of the equation and he angled into the empty net to give the visitors what was thought of at the time as an unexpected lead.

Taking the lead gave White Ensign a definite surge of energy which totally disconcerted the hosts and there was a growing tendency for Woodford defenders to concede possession. The visitors were terribly unfortunate not to double their advantage when a superb curling effort from the edge of the area struck by L Skinner, did not quite have enough bend and rebounded off of the inside of the post. In an increasingly engrossing contest, it was Woodford's who then struck the post next with Modeste cutting in from the left, his shot deflected off of Parkins' thigh against the base of the post. Soon after Woodford levelled with Sighiartu latching onto a long ball down the right and he had the space to lob perfectly from a none too favourable angle over the advancing Parkins who was caught coming out too far in pursuit of a ball he was never going to reach.

In the final minutes of the half White Ensign went close to restoring their lead on two occasions when the woodwork intervened. Firstly a downward header from George off the post and then a 20 yard drive from Locke off of the far post. Safe to say that the first half was the best seen thus far this season.

With the pace being relentless, it was not a surprise that the second period was a little more low key, still an entertaining watch, but the flow was impeded by an increasing number of stoppages. The strangest break in play was caused by a lack of available balls pitchside, which meant that several new balls had to be located probably in a dusty under the stand cupboard, but play resumed after a rather bizarre break which could only happen in the lower echelons of the footballing food chain.

As was the case during the first period the visitors had the better of chances during the second half. Only the once that the woodwork rattled when Ainsley's header from an inswinging corner came back off the post. However, Reed was called on to make to make some important saves, notably coming swiftly off of his line to block a shot from Barmby who had sprinted clear of two defenders. Few opportunities for Woodford who by the end were collectively grateful to still be in the competition, though a free kick taken far out on the left from Mantovani eluded all as it travelled through a number of outstretched limbs and ended up just clipping the far post. Overall worth every penny of the admission price and a pity that with prior commitments the replay cannot be on next weeks agenda.

Woodford publicised the match widely and were rewarded by an attendance that would have been one of the best at Burrows Farm over the previous 12 months including all Harlow matches. A nice touch at half time when platefuls of tasty Somosa's and Spring Rolls were distributed by the hosts, which were swiftly devoured.

A wild weather day in August with a particularly venomous shower meaning an en route sheltering under trees but fortunately more than enough time to arrive before the gates opened. Many thanks to Geoff for the lift back to Collier Row, however with a later running bus back to Rainham, it regrettably led to no improvement in the return journey times. Indoors quite close to the ending of Friday....

SPFL Championship
Partick Thistle v Dundee United, 1-2, H.T. 1-0, Att 3218 (1030 Away), Admission £20, Programme £3, Catering Available
At Firhill Stadium, Glasgow

Friday night BBC Scotland games will offer some decent alternatives for the Scottish match-hoppers and also open up some weekend doubles and trebles for the more far flung ground-hoppers. More than a few of each variety were in evidence at Firhill for this game.

Partick have been at the centre of attention this week for off-field issues. A boardroom takeover has seen their Euromillions benefactor Colin Weir withdraw his support from the club – he had put in millions over the past few years. The new regime are intent on a more prudent and sustainable approach which has clearly not pleased the manager Gary Caldwell. Leaks to the press from “within the club” must surely emanate from him and his obnoxious side-kick Kenny Miller.

United have spent a fair bit on trying to assemble a team to get out of the Championship at the fourth time of asking. It will not be easy with Dundee, Inverness, Dunfermline and others all similarly ambitious.

A day of torrential storms interspersed with sunshine left the Firhill pitch heavy in places but the game was not in any real doubt. It proved to be very entertaining despite the efforts of Willie Collum to spoil it.

United were dominant in the opening period but went behind against the run of play. Steven Saunders popped up at the back post to head in a goal which changed the flow of the game. Thistle had the better of the remainder of the first half and were possibly unlucky not to go further ahead.

A tactical reshuffle by United changed things in the second half and they controlled the game for long spells. Lawrence Shankland equalised with a strange goal – his mis-hit shot bounced into the ground and over the despairing goalkeeper. Had he connected properly the ball would probably have been in Garscube Road. The winners was also strange – the ball bounced about in the 6 yard box and was eventually poked over the line by Peter Pawlett.

Over the 90 minutes United just deserved their win. Their fans were in the Main Stand, still called the Colin Weir Stand, but probably not for long. Thistle followers were opposite in the Jackie Husband Stand and behind the goal at the north end. The south end of Firhill remains wasteland.

£3 programme was the usual Curtis Sport effort – good enough for what was there but a bit thin on real content for the money. Didn’t sample the catering but Firhill has a good reputation for its fare.

Pre-match pint was taken in Munn’s Vaults, the closest pub to the ground on Maryhill Road. Back in the 1980s it was an iconic football boozer. Nowadays it is run-down, inhabited by the semi- and soon-to-be destitute.

Also at the Woodford - White Ensign FA Cup game and agree with Timmy Tabby, a great game and a well organised evening by the hosts.

Visitors were unlucky not too get the win and the first half was one if the best I have seen in a long time.

Couple of surprises - two Essex teams but hardly any arguments, poor tackles - a first?

Plenty of support for White Ensign, a surprise as when I went to see them at their adopted home in Basildon last season, you could count them on one hand - maybe as it was Friday night but may also have something to do with them moving back closer than their Southend roots.

Great report and sums up the evening perfectly. The surprise refreshments were from a private function in the upstairs function room. One of the distributors informed me that this was from a funeral wake!

SWPL Premier Division East
Ivybridge Town 2-0 Crediton United (1-0 HT)
Att 72 - Adm £5 - Coffee £1

Decided on this one rather than Plymouth Parkway as Erme Valley offered a bit more cover which was needed on a wet evening. This was Crediton's first game at this level after playing in the old Division 1 West last season. Both sides contributed to an entertaining game despite the conditions. It was the visitors who started brighter & with more composure should have at least scored twice in the first 20 minutes. Ivybridge made them pay on 30 minutes when they scored from their first shot on goal. Ivybridge took control in the 2nd half but had to wait until 20 minutes from time before doubling their lead with a well taken free kick from about 5 yards outside the penalty area. No changes to Erme Valley during the off season & the guy fishing the ball out of the river had a busy night.

Sutton Common Rovers 1-1 Molesey (1-1 HT) at Gander Green Lane
FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round
Admission: £2 (student), Programme: £2
Attendance: 71

Down in London visiting my brother who accompanied me to this match, which required a tube journey to Morden then a bus due to Thameslink being in chaos. Match was okay, Sutton taking the lead in the 18th minute after the Molesey keeper whiffed a kick, allowing Daryl Cooper-Smith to guide the loose ball into the net. Molesey had a chance to equalise around the half hour mark through a penalty but it was saved. The visitors didn't have to wait long to make it 1-1 as Marlon Linder scored a deflected shot five minutes later. The second half was quite scrappy and despite a couple of decent chances for both sides the scores remained equal until the full time whistle. I'm sure most on here have been to Gander Green Lane, which SCR share with Conference club Sutton United. All of the ground was accessible which was surprising and the large amount of cover was needed on an evening which saw very heavy rain.
