  1. Bedfont & Feltham FC learned today that former Tudor Park FC player Ron Cobb sadly passed away last week. He had been suffering from ill health for quite a while.

    Ron played for Tudor Park back in the early days alongside names such as Mick Segger, John Benn and Ron Humprhies.

    We'd like to send our condolences to Ron's family, including his daugher Debbie, with whom I'd been in touch whilst working on the history and 70th anniversary of the formation of Tudor Park FC.

    More information about Tudor Park FC can be found here.



  2. At the last (Bedfont & Feltham) club Committee meeting, I asked if it would be acceptable to publish an online-only match programme for midweek matches, and the Committee agreed that this would be ok.

    The reason for this is mainly due to the tight deadline for the programme printing. I have to email the content over for printing by 
    Sunday night / Monday morning and due to work and family commitments, this is getting more and more difficult.

    I will, of course follow league rules and publish the online programme on a 
    Monday evening for a Tuesday match.

    There would be no change to Saturday programmes. 

    The Combined Counties Football League has confirmed that this doesn’t breach their rules. 

    I’d like to apologise to programme collectors but I hope you understand my reasoning. 

  3. Thanks very much, I hate out of date information!

    if we had more available people, we might be able to consider taking the printing in-house. I did that 30 years ago when I was the editor at Feltham! 

    As it stands, one of our sponsors office managers prints the pages and they are closed over bank holidays and Christmas. I have lived in Dagenham for the past 10 years and work shifts so make it harder still. It’s just as well we have computers these days!

  4. For the record, I’ve had to produce an online-only programme for Bedfont & Feltham for today’s match v AFC Hayes. 

    This is due to bank holiday print deadlines and rather than having a programme printed last Friday without the weekend’s results and latest league table, I have a very up-to-date programme. Click here

    If we’d been at home on Saturday, I might have done a double issue to cover both matches, but that would have still been out of date by today. 


  5. When Feltham changed their name to Bedfont & Feltham in May 2012, it was too late for season 2012-13 as they’d already entered the FA Vase as Feltham FC so they has to play under that name for one more season. 

    Surely this will be the case for Kensington Borough as all FA competition entries for next season would have already been submitted. 

  6. The Combined Counties League held an EGM prior to their AGM to decide upon a proposal to remove AC London from the proposed constitution for 2018-2019 as the organisation and management of the club had fallen below the standards appropriate to membership of the competition. It is likely that the club will appeal to the FA and they have been included in the cup draws for the time being. If there is no appeal or any such appeal fails, the club(s) against whom they have been drawn will receive a bye into the next round.


    Other matters of note were that the issue of paper programmes will be optional next season, along with the alternative of producing a programme on-line.


    It was also noted that the final senior constitutions would always be subject to any enforced move required or requested by the FA.


    The league and cup winners were re-presented whilst the other awards were as follows:

    Best Programme (Premier Division): Guildford City

    Best Programme (Division One): Ash United

    Fair Play Winners (Premier Division): Balham

    Fair Play Winners (Division One): Raynes Park Vale

    Best Administered Club (Premier Division): Spelthorne Sports

    Best Administered Club (Division One): Bedfont & Feltham


    There were also medals for the leading scorer in both divisions and these were picked up by Max Blackmore (Westfield) 48 goals and Harrison Deacon (Worcester Park) 46 goals.


    In “outside" competitions, the most praiseworthy achievement was that of Balham FC, who won the London Senior Cup. Staines Lammas won the Southern Combination Challenge Cup, beating premier Division CB Hounslow in an enthralling final played at Bedfont Sports.


    The Middlesex Charity Cup was also an all-CCL affair with Hanworth Villa defeating Spelthorne Sports. Other worthy mentions went to Worcester Park, finalists in the Surrey Premier Cup and Eversley & California, finalists in the Aldershot Senior Cup.


    The Chairman welcomed the new or returning clubs to the League, namely Southall, Dorking Wanderers Reserves, British Airways, Tooting Bec and Sandhurst Town. He sent the League’s best wishes to those clubs leaving the League, namely North Greenford United, Bedfont Sports, Westfield, Farleigh Rovers, Staines Lammas, Worcester Park and South Park Reserves.

  10. The Cherry Red Records Combined Counties Football League, Division One fixtures have now been uploaded onto Pitcheo.
    You are now able to archive your previous season if you haven't already, and join the league for the 2014-15 season. This will ensure that your fixtures, results and league tables are accurate.
    I have asked to become Division Admin for our Division again this season so will endeavour to update the fixtures and results as and when they are available.
