Burton and District Sunday. Division 2. KO 10:30. (F&N). Crowd 32.

T L Darby 0 v 2 Donisthorpe


Sunday league is back! My first game in this league at the recommendation of Bob L. Hatt who was in attendance along with Steve R. Not a great introduction to the league with the visitors missing several clear cut chances. Donisthorpe won this with a goal in each half, little else to report.

Match played at Hatton Sports and Social club and there are two pitches at the rear of the club, neither has any football furniture and the match was played on the one nearest the changing rooms. The social club bar was open.

Alfreton QTS Sunday. Division 1. KO 14:15. (F&N). Crowd 18.

FC Chadd 2013 12 v 2 Rolls Royce

This was played at Derby Racecourse #1, there was also a match on #2. This is a large expanse of grass with several pitches with trees surrounding it on all sides, quite pleasant on an afternoon like today.

Chadd raced into a 3 goal lead in a little over 15 minutes, the third was a penalty and increased their tally to 6 without reply by half time. Second period in similar vein with a brief flurry from Rolls taking the score from 10-0 to 11-2. Chadd played some nice football, particularly given the length of the grass. Definitely a league I will visit again. Incidentally the match on the other pitch finished 4-7.

Thanks to the NHS for seeing me early and despite the line between Horsforth and Leeds being shut. I headed to Ripon . The lure of a revisit to a Wetherspoons held sway too.

An even start until Yorkshire Amateur got a couple of goals midway through the first half one a long range effort the second was bumbling along until an error by the replacement error was soon followed by a fourth to send the visitors into the next round.

A.F.C. WIMBLEDON v Cambridge United. Women's National League south east division 1. Kick off: 14.07 which was disgraceful. Result: 2-0. Admission & programme: free. Attendance: 51

Cambridge United kept everybody waiting which the referee appeared to find amusing so I doubt the late start will appear in his report. The U's also required an 18 minute half time before they felt able to start the second half. Women's football is often not taken seriously, this afternoon Cambridge United gave a good illustration of why. When they finally decided to start playing this was a routine win for the home side. On the plus side the programme is double the size of last seasons, good news for spectators but apparently not so good for the Amazon Rain Forest!

TEAM KNOWHOW 1-1 HOLY TRINITY RESERVES
(Newark Alliance Division 2)
@ Farndon Recreation Ground, Marsh Lane, Farndon, Notts

Pleasant venue set behind the village hall in the village which is also home to the village cricket club.

A play area kept my nearly three year old happy.

HULL CITY LADIES 1-6 DERBY COUNTY LADIES
(FA Women's National League Northern Premier Division)
@ North Ferriby FC

Adm: £5
Prog: £2
Team Sheet: free
Pin Badge: £2.50
Att: 72 (official)

Decent ground and a friendly welcoming club. Very surprised to see specific Hull City Ladies merchandise on sale in the North Ferriby club shop.

The game - it was 1-1 @ half time which was a fair reflection, but in the second half two own goals contributed to the home side's downfall.

Southern League Division 1 South

Sholing 1 Evesham U. 2

admission £8-00 programme £1-50 attendance 175
last season's Wessex Champions v 7th, this season both mid-table after 3 games
This game moved to Sunday due to cricket, apparently. Never seen Evesham so it seemed like a good idea - and it was a decent game and the visitors were very impressive, despite losing one of their players to Kettering yesterday. Good one-touch football, two excellent central midfielders and two fast wingers.
The visitors started the better and there were a few worrying moments in the home defence, but no clear chances. The Boatmen were as usual effective with the long ball to D.Mason and supporting midfielders, and they did force keeper Robertson into two early saves - one easy one, from Nicholas, and one good one with his legs, from D.Mason. Chilton then had a good chance for the Robins; racing for goal with a defender in pursuit, he shot just over. Bragioli then came close with a powerful shot, as did Tong, after showing his speed down the left and cutting in. The opening goal also came from an incisive move down the left on 31 mins, good inter-passing set up left-back Morrison to finish well. The visitors then proceeded to dominate, coming close three more times. As we approached half time Sholing nearly equalised as D.Mason was allowed a shot which cannoned off the far post. In injury time Evesham got a penalty as Smikle's speed caught sub Sawyer by surprise as he attempted to clear - converted by Chilton, HT 0-2. After the break the home team tried to come back, and they put the pressure on. But the visitors kept them out and again looked very dangerous on the break - Bragioli forcing a save from McCarthy. Hoole had a couple of good cross-shots just wide for Sholing, and Chilton and Smikle came close for Evesham. D.Mason nearly got a late goal back was was superbly denied by a block by Paddock. Sub Reynolds had a couple of attempts for the visitors too, one forcing another save by McCarthy. The Robins should have grabbed a third with two mins to go as they had a three v two situation but over-elaborated and the chance was gone. In injury time a free-kick by Cuthbertson took a wicked deflection past Robertson to give Sholing a consolation, but they had been well-beaten by a good side.



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.

Buildbase FA Vase 1st Round Qual
Emley v Burscough 1-1 aet (adm £5, prog £1, att 177)


There were several Vase ties to choose from today, and I selected this one, with Emley despite the infrequent Sunday buses, being easy to reach from the Manchester area on public transport provided the match didn't run to extra time. Ah...
Emley started off brightly enough with Dom Riordan putting them ahead after 8 minutes from a header through a crowded goalmouth. The game ebbed and flowed, much like the weather which shifted from being sunmy to torrential downpours and then back again, but I thought Emley had just about managed to hold out for a win, before some poor defending let Carl Lomax equalise on 89 minutes from a goalmouth scramble and so we moved to extra time, with me knowing I would have to leave before the end to catch the final 232 bus to Huddersfield at 1726. Quite a few people left at 90 minutes, but only one other person waa to get the bus.
Early in extra time, Emley won a penalty but Danny Farrar's effort was saved by David Jones. Then, after I left, Burscough's Andrew Presho was apparently sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity, but the score remained level and the teams meet again on Wednesday.

I was impressed by Emley's off-field organisation. Everything is well signposted, there are clear PA announcements, and the programme, besides containing a photograph/plan of the ground, even contained yesterday's results, including the evening game in Oswestry. I also liked the village pub, the White Horse, which had seven pumps from Ossett and various guest breweries.

Coupe de France, Round 2
SAM Football 0-5 AS Courteille Alencon
Admission Free, No Programme, Attendance ~32


SAM is actually an acronym for Soligny Aspres Moulins, and even then the full name of two of the three villages concerned has been shortened, Moulins is actually Moulins-la-Marche, while the game was played in Soligny-la-Trappe

I assume Stade Municiple le Bourg, in Soligny is the best of the three village grounds, but it still does not add up to a great deal. The ptich has an old concrete post and rail around it, and a dressing room block. The club has use of grounds within the other two villages in the trio.

Last season, SAM were in the 9th level of French Football, Departmental 1B, Orne while AS Courteille Alencon were just one level higher in Regional 3E, but the home side have been demoted, (I don't know why), while the away team were promoted (I know why - they were eight points clear top of the league at the end of last season).

The game was as one sided as the scoreline suggests. Indeed it should have been a higher scoring away victory. While SAM never gave up trying to score, Courteille's greater fitness and organistation was always going to give them more than an edge. It took them a little while to get used to the hard, bumpy surface after which two goals in a minute put them well on the way. A third was added after half an hour and a fourth early after the break

We then had a dull period of play, with two many substitutions and visiting players taking pot shots that were causing damage only to the crops in the next field.

By my reckoning, although each side named four substitutes, only three were available for each. SAM in fact only played two with the coach naming himself on the bench and not coming on. Courteille played three of the four, and added two returning subs, SAM had three returnees.

The final goal was scored in injury time, a poor shot (probably off target), which took a nasty deflection to beat the home keeper

......A Sunday morning of lethargy coupled with the fact that there was a replacement bus service between Grays and Pitsea thus meaning travelling to either of the South Essex Vase ties would take an eternity meant that the SE7 option was favoured resulting in....

Meridian VP 0 V 2 Hassocks - FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round
Prog 28 pages £2.00* - Admission £5.00** - Att 30**

* A glossy informative issue from a club who have been intermittent producers in the past. The understanding is that this is a regular issue.

** Despite the prog showing Admission at £6.00 with the teen on the gate adamant that the price was a pound less. Overall the gate youth had little idea on how much to charge as some of our grouping were charged just the cost of the programme.

*** Counted a few more but not that many in addition.

Relatively straightforward passage to the next qualifying round of the Vase for the visitors against somewhat limited opposition who had a tendency throughout to be caught offside, without Hassocks employing any form of offside trap. Pattern of the contest started with the visitors being unfortunate not to take the lead in the first two minutes when Matt Berridge' cross was missed by Ben Ashton in the goal and Harvey Enticknap half volleying against the underside of the bar and then in the scramble the ball not crossing the Meridian line

Despite Hassocks being technically superior for the vast majority of first half play, Meridian had two of the better chances of the half when Tim Moffatt's dipping shot from distance which was akin to a rugby drop kick clearing the bar and then a cross from Moffatt picked out Douane West on the far post but a clear chance was missed as there was no direction to the header which was aimed straight when it required an angle to send the attempt towards the goal. More sustained pressure from Hassocks in the final minutes of the opening half when Will Broomfield's cross nearly deceiving Ashton who just managed to tip over the bar.

Similar pattern of play in the second period with a delicately floated free kick from James Littlejohn just clearing the bar and then seconds later he cut in from the right and Ashton only managed to cling onto his shot at the second attempt. As the minutes progressed there was fears for the visitors of extra time that with a FA Cup replay on the Tuesday evening would not have been welcomed, however the ET fears were avoided with two goals in the final quarter of the contest ensuring passage. The first evolved from quick break though the middle with Ben Bacon's quick pass sending Jamie Hillwood on his way and he placed with ease past Ashton. What surprised our grouping was the lack of response from the Meridian defenders as there was more than a hint of offside when Bacon received and then when Hillwood receive the resulting pass. The lead was doubled as a result of a persistent run from Bradley Tighe down the left his run was curtailed near the by line but Jack Troak from a very narrow angle forced the ball past Ashton. Little response from Meridian apart from Tyrone Headley's shot from the edge or the area which nearly squirmed under Josh Green's body but the deflection saw the ball head over the bar. Few doubts regarding the outcome as there was a noticeable gap between lower mid table Level 5 and lower table Level 6 on this occasion.

First time to the Meridian Social Club to watch the hosts though have seen Bridon Ropes who groundshare on three occasions. Reasonable enough facilities with a more than adequate for 30 in attendance stand and a fully railed off pitch. The social club is large and has a separate cafe area where meals could be obtained. There is also an area upstairs from the social club which on this occasion had been hired out to an Evangelical Church who were tunefully singing the praises of their god.

Arrived far too early and therefore contended not with gospel singing but tea and Carrot Cake in the nearby park cafe, Post match, made up for the dryness of the previous days proceedings with several welcome pints of Beartown Atlas which at 5% were consumed too easily. Arrived home to the weekly appointment with the ironing board, which was accompanied on this occasion by the primitive rantings of Darby Crash and the Germs on YouTube. A perfect accompaniment to vigorous and speedy usage of the steam iron....

Whickham 1-2 Squires Gate AET...FA Vase Adm: Comp....Cuppa £1.20...Prog £1.50 Excellent read.

Set off early for this one to connect with the team bus from School Lane in the south of Blackpool. After calling into the north end of Preston for half the team, we turned north for the passage to Whickham.

We arrived in good time and did a recce of the ground. Todays matchday programme is a labour of love put together by Andrew Mc Donnell, great content from start to finish.

The match itself was a tight affair, Whickham took the lead on 36 minutes,playing down the slope with the breeze and sun behind them. The Lang Jack also hit the underside of the crossbar on 53 minutes, but the Gate stuck to the task. Manager Andy Clarkson was dismissed on 79 minutes and retreated to the neighbouring cricket pitches wall, Just when another Vase campaign seemed to be over, they levelled through a fine strike from the Gate No11. The pace of the shot beat the keeper and took the game into extra time.

Whickham thought they had retaken the lead on 112 minutes but the linesman flagged for offside.At the start of the second period of extra time, the Gate struck the post and saw the ball fly clear. Dean Ing hit the winner on 118 minutes, there was no way back for Whickham though they still brought a couple more decent saves out of Ben Fletcher in goal for the Lancashire team.

After a few ales in the bar, the team and coach departed for the NE and made the 3 hour trek home.

Hadn't been to Whickham for years so took advantage of the £10 coach fare including admission. One decent Stand, with a pitch railed on three sides and roped on the fourth to give a temporary divide from the cricketers who played yesterday. Theres refreshments inside the ground and ale can be purchased from the Clubhouse by the cricket pitch.

A few familiar hopping faces in the crowd, making the most of a northern Sunday fixture.

Saffron Dynamo 0-2 Rainworth MW
FA Vase 1q
Att 172 h/c Adm + Prog £3 (conc) Coffee £1


3-sider shared with cricket with a small metal covered area (holding about 50) but no seats yet. Hardstanding on 2 1/2 sides with the far side also lacking one of its floodlights (I assume to be put up when the cricket finishes?) Pitch is some distance from the entrance & clubhouse.

Rainworth kicking down the slope dominated the 1st half, missing an early pen (which looked pretty 'soft') but taking the lead midway through the half when the No11 dribbled through the left wing and scored from an acute angle.

More even after HT but Rainworth made it safe on 78 with a neat passing move down the left leading to a low shot into the bottom corner.

Traffic good on way up and fair to middling on way back - indoors at 19:20.

Handsworth fc v Shelley fc FAVase qr1 att 121 adm £5 prog £1.50(quite good too).

A new ground for me today(as lots of them are),not bad too and an easy walk from Worksop station.

Quick pint in the fabulous Mallard on the platform pre game.

Game started fairly slow and even until HFC went ahead after 13 mins with a nice strike from the edge of the box.After that the home side pretty much dominated but there was an underlying threat of nastiness around with lots of snidey comments to the liners and opposing players having a nark at each other.Sure enough one or two handbags broke out before halftime with home skipper Joe Thornton seeming to believe non of it was the home sides fault.WRONG !.Both sides were having a dip verbally. Thornton had put HFC 2 up with a good free kick right on halftime.Straight after the break a nasty tackle started a huge onfield scrap which ended with a red card for one of each side(once again it wasnt HFC,,s fault apparently).Shelley were poor and shipped another 2 goals before the end.It was a shame the nastiness spoilt the game as HFC were by far the better side.Game didnt finish until around 5pm so we missed our connection and just had to go to the Mallard for another couple until the 6pm train.

The Torrside i,m spartacus at 6.8% was especially good.

just made conection at Sheffield so home by around 8pm.

Split ticketing saved us £6.90 so a good day out all round.

CAMRA night out in Mirfield monday then somewhere on tuesday coming up for us.

Also at this one, although I don't recall noticing a slope - the whole area looked very flat to me, The ground looks very new until you notice the old post and rail around part of the pitch, and this must be the only extant part since the club started playing there in 1976.

The ground is about 33-35 minutes walk from Narborough station. Like chesterbird, I used split ticketing but with even more impressive savings. The cheapest return ticket on a fast train from London would have cost me £42.50 with my railcard, but I saved around £18 by travelling with West Midlands Trains (the railway's answer to Ryanair) from Watford Junction to Nuneaton for just £16.50 and then buying a second ticket at Nuneaton for the rest of the journey to Narborough.

FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round
Selston 3-1 Teversal
Attendance 168
Admission £5 - Programme £1
Pie & Peas £2

Entertaining game between two former East Midlands Counties League rivals with some cracking goals, the now Step 5 hosts exerted their authority to come out on top and they scored the only goal of the first half in the 35th minute, a superb free kick from Kenan Layton nestling in the top corner similar to Harry Wilson's Goal of the Month winning free kick for Cherries against Man City last week. Visitors levelled just before the hour with a superb long range effort from Philip Griffiths. 8 minutes later substitute Eliot Jones fired home across the outstretched keeper to restore the hosts lead and soon after Sean Gregory made the tie safe at 3-1.

Ground shared with cricket hence the reason this and next weekend's league game vs Worcester City have been switched to Sunday. Like Horncastle the previous day only two sides accessible to spectators though you could watch from the cricket field side but not pitchside only from the pavilion some 50 yards back. A footpath elevated above a grass bank behind the near goal leads to a small stand on the far side with three rows of blue and black seats and an adjoining two step covered terrace. Hard standing extends past the dugouts to the far corner but access is denied behind the far goal where there is barely a metre of undergrowth between the pitchside barrier and perimeter fence. Behind the ground is a school.

Match: NGU might be struggling to get going in the SSMP but were a couple of classes above their very limited hosts.

0-1 pen
0-2
Ht
0-3

H defender picked up a straight Red late on, when another foray floundered on the edge of the NGU box - some audible F&A language directed at the young official.

Back home via A509 MK and Aylesbury - failing miserably to find an eater-chain open or serving on that route. Mad
- most Pubs were closed; undergoing re-furb or kitchens not open or converted to Asian Cuisine
- mate - who is the epitome of fussy and pernickety Unsure - had not seemed too enthusiastic about 'Buddies' at the apex of the MK conurbation.
- I don't think he's too familiar with the term 'Gourmet' in Gourmet Burger. Associates 'burger' with McVomits or Burgler King Tongue
Eventually gave-up and dropped him outside the Stonehouse pub (known locally as the 'Upsy Down': Pizzeria and Roasts - in my experience pretty arid unless you catch the 'carve' as it's brought out to be served) nr his own abode in Whitley.

.... back home to fridge raid. Unimpressed

The Buildbase FA Vase – First Round Qualifying
Meridian Sports & Social Club – Official Attendance: 30

Meridian VP (0) 0 ………………………….. Hassocks (0) 2


Another in attendance at this game – my first visit to a game in Charlton, as far as I can recall, since my last visit to the Valley in December 1983. I used to go there quite a lot with friends in the ‘70s and early ‘80s, but always quietly wanting the opposition to win.

I also encountered the anomalous entrance fee. The sign on the gate stated £5 entrance, with programme included. So when I only got £3 change from my tenner, I queried it. I was told that the sign was for ‘another club’ – I can only assume Bridon Ropes. But still, the £7 charge didn’t match what was printed on the programme. No complaints about paying £2 for the programme though – or was it only £1?

I was perhaps a little disappointed with the venue. Certainly a view I had seen online a week or so back, made it look much smarter than it actually was; the pitch definitely wasn’t quite the ‘green carpet’ that I thought I had seen in that picture. Not a complaint – just an observation.

No need to mention the match details – timmy tabby has those well covered.

FA Women's Cup- Preliminary Round

Farsley Celtic v Thackley 3-0

A second visit to The Citadel within a week. Gates open, no admission or programme.

Farsley are two divisions higher than Thackley, but struggled after an early 5th minute goal. Two in the second half on 50' and 85' eventually sealed it.

Briggers Vase tie on a Sunday due to a clash with the cricket. An superb game in the balance until the final whistle. The scoring went as follows

20' Ashley Emmett header from long throw 1-0
25' Jack Wilson fired in after first effort blocked 2-0
28' Callum Stone deflection beat Briggers keeper 2-1
37' Dan O'Connor ran onto through ball and fired past keeper from edge of box 2-2
43' Long range shot from Gary Bradshaw beat keeper 2-3
44' Conner Harman with even longer range effort to catch keeper off his line 2-4
55' Kieran Hirst right footed shot from edge of box 3-4
57' Callum Stone shot from left in off post 3-5
68' Dan O'Connor open on left of box fired in 3-6
75' Kieran Hirst shot from edge of box through keeper 4-6
85' Sub Kyle Wordsworth broke down right and fired in 5-6

Briggers thought they had equalised in stoppage time as a shot bounced down off the underside of the bar but unfortunately the lino wasn't a Russian!
