Hanworth Villa 1 AFC WImbledon 5( FA Youth Cup) Freezing night in West London in front of a bumper 200 strong crowd to see hosts Hanworth Villa who had won 3-2 at Gillingham in the previous round entertain AFC Wimbledon. The home side technically very useful but the visitors were just too sharp and quick and eased into a comfortable 3-0 half time lead without too much trouble. An early goal in the second half from a terrible mistake from the keeper got Hanworth back into the game and they gave as good as they got but 2 late goals gave Wimbledon the win they deserved and a trip to Sheffield United in the next round.

Staffs County Senior League Division 1. KO 20:00. (F&N). Crowd 23.

Keele University 1 v 5 AFC Alsager

AFC top the division with a 100% record from 12 league games prior to tonight, so the result was not unexpected. However they only led 2-1 at half time courtesy of goals in the 4th and 18th minutes. Keele pulled a goal back on 32 with their only effort on target in the whole game.

Two goals in 2 minutes in the third quarter of the game sealed the 3 points and a deft flick header from a uni defender looped over his own keeper to make it 1-5 on the night. Cold and misty towards the end but entertaining nonetheless.

AFC Alsager have a new ground. Details in the relevant section.

Wiltshire Senior Cup
Bremhill View
Calne Town 4 Cricklade Town 0
Admission: 3 No paper Attendance: 51

After my Vase game last week, this was another switched tie; Western One hosting Wilts Senior League. The Senior Cup is for Steps 6 and 7 this season, with the bigger boys playing for the Premier Shield. The visitors are usually a capable side at Step 7 so I wasn't expecting a rugby score as Bemerton had last week against Ludgershall.
In fact the away side started very brightly against a much-changed home side and made a lot of the running in the first 15 minutes giving Thompson in the home goal a few nervy moments. Calne settled and then dominated the rest of the game however; Talmash and Wyatt up front tormenting the away side. On 21 Wyatt slid in at the far post to put Calne 1 up. The away keeper played a blinder and made three impressive stops to keep the score down. HT 1-0.
A hot sweet tea at HT was just what was needed; it was damn cold. Early Calne pressure saw another Wyatt goal on 56 after a keeper parry, Talmash placing wide when he should have scored and another selection of fine stops by the away keeper kept things interesting. The home side brought on Gleed and Allen to replace Wyatt and Talmash up front and these two scored on 89 and 90+2 to make the scoreline look more reflective of their dominance. Cricklade never gave up but the gap between a top Step 6 and mid-table Step 7 was plain to see.
An enjoyable evening; I always like to support the Senior Cup. The Shield starts in 2 weeks time with Melksham at Salisbury...noice.

......Another day of employment travails followed by the customary Monday evening footballing therapy provided by....

Haringey Borough 1 v 1 Hornchurch - Isthmian League Premier Division
Prog 16 pages 2.00 - Admission 10.00 - Att 362

....And with both teams on the periphery of the ILP promotion/play off race, a close fought contest was anticipated and this was exactly what we had.

Little between the two teams throughout, the obligatory half chances at both ends and just as we were expecting a reasonably entertaining bout of noughts we had two superb goals within seconds of each other to improve our collective goal averages.

First period had it's moments at both ends amongst the typically frantic nature of the contest. Early on Joe Wright in the Hornchurch goal had to stretch high to catch a chip from Georgios Aresti that was sailing over his head and at the other end a measured cross from Joe Christou was met by the onrushing Charlie Stimson but there was too much rush in the shot and no perceived direction as he directed wide. The equal nature of proceedings continued with both teams striking the woodwork. Firstly, it was the visitors with a Ronnie Winn cross which 'kissed' the bar after Valery Pajetat lost the flight and at the other end a cross from Aresti was met by a wayward clearance from Arthur Lee who was somewhat relieved to see his misdirected rebound off the base of the post. One aspect of the half though that was quite noticeable was how much of play was concentrated in midfield with possession frequently being conceded.

The equable nature of the contest was maintained into the second period with each team failing to maintain any real sense of momentum. Rare half chances for both teams as Stimson headed wide from not the most favourable angle for the visitors and a free kick from Dimitrios Froxylias travelling through the Hornchurch was but Wright was comfortably behind.

At this stage there was a degree of concern about those nursing long runs without noughts but these were dispelled by what was a superb strike from Froxylias with 15 minutes left struck from fully 30 yards out, it was far too powerful form Wright who could only assist the ball in just under the bar. To maintain the equilibrium there was an inevitability about Hornchurch levelling, but the expectation was not that it would occur within seconds and with an equally superb strike from Stimson struck from the edge of the area with a noticeable bend in the effort led to Pajetat clutching at the increasingly chilled N17 air as it sped past.

Towards the end both teams could have obtained an additional two points and initially many of us seated in the stand thought that Haringey had with Froxylias' drive rebounding into the back of the goal, however it was just that the back of the goal as it had travelled wide of the post. Late scramble at the other end with Pajetat making instinctive saves from Matt Johnson and Stimson, however on the balance of play it would have been a complete travesty if one of the teams had upset what was almost a perfect balance between the teams.

Usual Monday concern on leaving later than expected that arrival into White Hart Lane would be of the 19.30 and beyond variety. Fortunately, good interchanges at Bank, Kings Cross and onto a W3 service at Wood Green meant that arrival was half an hour earlier than anticipated. Post match it appears that almost the entire crowd wants to embark on the W3 back to Wood Green and it was needless to say a 'cosy' journey back for what is just five or so stops. Indoors at 23.20...

Man City Transfer Target!

Rivermoor (Scours Lane)

Reading City 3-0 Holmer Green

Adm: 6 prog now on line

Att: hc 50+ - no official figures yet

Directions/Facilities: regular here - Clubhouse has a bit more in it each time. Looks as if they are extending the Kitchen area - more hot food on offer - and the pitch is holding up very well - though they 'lost' a game here at the w/e with a bit of a deluge locally.

Match: close tussle first half with lowly HG matching their host without threatening unduly. City are also adding to the squad piecemeal - focussing on experience
- brought back Mitch Parker who was eventually the difference between the sides on the night.
Michael Butcher in at CB is a decent addition too - former Bracknell Town assistant and a decent coach in his own right.
Also arrived this week Sam Tucker former player/manager at Woodcote and before that played for Ab Utd, Diddy & Thatcham.


H Pen saved

Then game settled in the last 20' as 'Green' wilted under the onslaught - with Parker a key factor running them ragged form both flanks.

1-0 no 6 & capt (Cowd) close range header
2-0 no 7 (Burton) close range driven after gd wk down l
3-0 Parker himself on the break - forced shot through the keeper and a covering defender on the line .
