  2. You have to worry about Mark Ducket's future at The Eyrie don't you: Thame United 3-0 Bedford Town Southern League Division One Central Attendance : 178 Entrance : £8 Programme : Online, printed teamsheets provided at entrance A deserved win for Thame over a talented but ill-disciplined Bedford side who were reduced to 9 men after 60 minutes and didn't seem to be too aware of this season's law changes with respect to handball. However, of much more importance was the demonstration that football at this level with crowds of less than 200 can safely be held in accordance with all of the Covid safety requirements. https://fatbearssportingdiaries.blogspot.com/2020/09/thame-united-3-0-bedford-town-att-178.html

  7. There was a film back in the late 70's called 'Thank God It's Friday', it's a shame it wasn't called 'Thank God It's Sunday' as I'm sure that's how everyone is feeling with Ollie Bayliss's BBC Three Counties Radio Non League Show back on air, this afternoon's show at 2.00pm should be a great listen as Ollie has been to Haywood Way and Elmfields Gate since last week: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08qvdzh
  8. Mitch and Les confirmed for Joe Wright. Thanks Mitch
  9. I expect the Non League Paper will be the usual great read today with all the FA Vase First Qualifying Round reports amongst other things:
  10. Karen - Yes, thanks, I was wrongly informed by my sources that Brimsdown had beaten Clapton yesterday, heads will roll. Potton United have started the new campaign extremely well with the two impressive FA Cup away wins, the FA Vase win yesterday and beating Eynesbury Rovers 4-1 in the League, we will see what they are really made of at Grays Athletic on Wednesday. https://issuu.com/pottonunitedfc/docs/potton_utd_vs_biggleswade_utd
  11. Colin - What name does Darren want on the Sponsorship page? Is it his full name or just 'Darren'? And one other new sponsor - Roy Thomas is a West Ham supporter, who has followed them since the 1930s, and who is now 85 years old. He has been married for 63 years, and so - welcome aboard to Roy and his wife Mary. And Trevor and Arlotte confirmed for Jordan Clark - Thanks Trevor Thanks - Tony
  12. One other thought, anyone out there who can, or would like to film the games step forward. The two goals were worth many views but the skippers winner was another level, so anyone fancy filming games and interviews The two against Welling I should have said
  13. No easy games in this league, three good chances early on should have put the game to bed, turned up yesterday to find dicko limping and then Sam came off, that's 50 goals not on the park so any win is sufficient, great crowd and support which we will need Tuesday, great cameo from Mark

Match reports from Friday evening: Friday 18 September Buildbase FA Vase First Qualifying Round Broadfields United 0 Aylesbury Vale Dynamos 0 (after 90 mins, Broadfield United win 5-4 on pens) https://www.aylesburyvaledynamos.co.uk/teams/77541/match-centre/0-4877916/report Thame Rangers 0 Milton Keynes Irish FC 6 https://mkirishfc.co.uk/thame-rangers-0-6-mk-irish/
  15. Buckingham United's team sheet for the SSML Division Two fixture at Bovingdon which unfortunately they lost 3-2 after leading 2-0 after half an hour, the Reserve team also had a disappointing afternoon losing 3-1 to AFC Santander at the Lace Hill Sports and Community Centre in the North Bucks & District League Intermediate Division:
  16. Bovingdon had a mixed Saturday afternoon, the First team had an excellent 3-2 win over Buckingham United at Green Lane after being 2-0 in arrears after 34 minutes, the key to the comeback was a spot kick awarded on 43 minutes which Ben Baldwin converted following a retake to go in at the break just 2-1 down. Tea cups must have hit every wall of the dressing room during the interval as Bovingdon were a changed team and equalised on 74 minutes through another penalty which Baldwin clinically put away, then three minutes into added on time a speculative cross was headed home. Unfortunately the Reserve side were unable to match the First teams heroics and they lost 3-2 at Buntingford Town in a Herts Senior County League Division One fixture, the 'A' team weren't in action: https://twitter.com/BovingdonFC
  17. I thought we missed a number of chances to take a commanding lead into half-time. There seemed to be a sense of "tightness" about this game that wasn't apparent in the pre-season friendlies, possibly because this result mattered The second half was a lot more edgy, we seemed to get very narrow along whichever wing the ball was played making it easy for Merstham to defend with no wide out ball. For the first goal I though Ellis had misjudged the wind and overhit the corner but either way Lewwis got the header back across the area which is all you can ask and Jordan finally got us on the scoresheet.. I can't comment on the penalty decision as I didn't see it as I turned my head to talk to someone but there had been so many other shouts during the game turned down I guess it must have been justified. The advantage always has to be with the taker but my mind went back to last year's penalty shootout against Oxford City. Joe Wright guessed correctly but the strike was too good and he couldn't pull off another wonder save. The winning goal. Well, this isn't the first time I have seen Lewwis score from the half-way line, or indeed pull out a last minute winner. I teased him on Twitter today and will continue to do so but when the chips are down OMG !!! I stand on the sidelines these days so had to wait until the ball was in the net to celebrate but previously behind the goal have been able to celebrate 2 or 3 seconds beforehand. Overall you cannot really complain when you have got all 3 points and a worldie goal of the season winner in the first game .

  20. Forthcoming fixtures, the Development team's Hellenic League Division Two North fixtures should be issued shortly:
  21. Edgware won 3-1 a comfortable result but we really should have scored a few more, wasteful in front of goal with 15 efforts on target. We're in the next round that's really all that matters.
  22. I think on balance we deserved the win today. Even Simon Parker would have been proud of that goal from Lewwis today, hell of a way to win a game. Think the Eastside was relatively happy with the goal. Good performance bearing in mind how much our front line was affected today. Was it a pen? Thought it was harsh personally but I’m not sure if the ref was compensating as there was a possible pen shout before that which could have gone either way. But we deserved the win anyway . Well done all and a good start to the season
  23. A good win for Chico Ramos today thanks to a hat trick from Jalen Miller, Arlesey Town now entertain Northampton Sileby Rangers in the Second Qualifying Round:

  25. A disappointing defeat for Stotfold this afternoon, a groundhopper from another Forum was at the War Memorial Ground: FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round Little Oakley 2 Stotfold 1 Admission £3 (concession) Attendance c110 (headcount) The first half of this match was pretty poor fare with a rock hard pitch and a fresh breeze making control of the ball very difficult. Little Oakley started the better perhaps because they had already played three league games whereas Stotfold hadn't even opened their campaign. The visitors did get into the game as the half progressed and went closest to scoring with a shot that was cleared off the line. Things improved after the interval with at least a few passes going to feet. Play was end to end but again it was Stotfold who looked the more dangerous and it took two good saves from the Little Oakley keeper to keep the scores level. It appeared that Litttle Oakley had snatched it ten minutes from time when Rodgers got free on the right hand side to fire home, maybe a little fortunately as moments earlier he had launched himself at the opposing full back and only earned a yellow card. Stotfold didn't give up and equalised when ex-Cambridge City striker Fehmi hit a low shot from distance which finished up in the bottom corner. As everybody anticipated the final whistle and a penalty shootout Little Oakley pumped the ball forward and an offside looking Mann was left clear through - the linesman possibly influenced by having just had a previous offside decision overruled by the referee. Mann kept his composure to put Little Oakley back in front and to secure their first ever FA Vase victory. My first visit to this part of Essex since 1972 when Cambridge City beat nearby Harwich and Parkeston in an FA Cup Qualifying Round. I had a quick drive round Dovercourt and Harwich before kick off and passed the site of that victory and was pleased to see that the impressive main stand is still in place. Little Oakley's Memorial Ground is much more modest with a small cluster of seats on one side and a miniscule area of covered standing behind one goal. Clubhouse and dressing rooms are separated from by the pitch by a caged five-a-side facility. Comprehensive Covid precautions in place in the clubhouse with name and number taken at the gate but several groups of spectators were unable to count to six.
