  1. A very hard fought win for Tring Athletic at Newport Pagnall, a fiesty affair to say the least, two 2nd half goals, a Max Mitchell twice taken penalty and a 30 yard rocket from Michael Toner. this after NP had a player and the manager sent off before half time !! a tough game which lacked a bit of quality football
  2. playing with plenty of confidence, strongest midfield i have ever seen at Tring,goals coming from everywhere. just added George Brinkman to the squad too. although our best performance of the season so far was in our home defeat to Colney Heath !!!! its a funny old game !
  3. Another solid win for Tring again last night against London Colney, two goals from Dan Ferrigno keeps us clear at the top, FA Vase action at home this saturday. v Woodbridge Town,
  4. Elmo


  5. i watched leighton pre season and they looked very similar to last season, not many followed the old manager to Aylesbury FC, should be strong again
  6. im hoping my team Tring will be up there come the end of season with new signings Ashton Campbell and Alex Campana from Berkhamsted, Carl Mensah from Welwyn, Kieran Turner from Kings Langley with Roy Byron and a fantastic young lad called Billie Busari. along with most of last seasons squad, should be a better showing this time round only two players have moved on Max Hercules(Aylesbury Utd) and Steve Nott-McAire(Risborough)
  7. good first win for Tring Athletic yesterday 2-0 against a good Baldock team. a debut goal from Ashton Campbell(Signed from Berkhamsted) and another from returning Kieran Turner(Kings Langley) Tring have made some good signings with Alex Campana(Berkhamsted) Carl Mensah(Welwyn) and Roy Byron . hoping for a much better season from tring this season pitch played ok, but boy does it need some rain
  8. Andy is still banging em in for Tring Corries in Division Two this season, would have been right up there as top scorer in SSML if his hamstrings had held up over the past few years. Top bloke to go with it to !
  9. 205 was the crowd at Tring Athletic v Berkhamsted, Bit of a surprise with Tring stuffing Berko 4-0, Taylor Collins with 2 in the first half, with Sam Joliffe hitting a 35 yard screamer into the top corner, and former Berko player Kieron Turner getting a last minute 4th, good performance from Athletic , Berko were very subdued tbh
  10. Chris Vardy gets another 3 goals for Tring Athletic in a comfortable away win at Stotfold, Great club,good people by the way !!
  11. Two excellent results for Tring Corinthians, Colin Phillips is a top bloke and will do an excellent job there, Ex Tring Athletic legend Andy Humphreys got 2 on Saturday and ex Athletic Trevor Gibbs got 4 last night !!!
  12. Keith No don't do it, you are to old !!!!!
  13. Mark,give Julian Robinson a call a Tring, i know Trings young goalkeeper is off to the states to play next season,so maybe on lookout for new Keeper,
  14. Not looking good,makes you wonder why they wanna stay in Southern league !!! tough year ahead if they keep going !!
  15. Heard a whisper last night that Leighton Town have gone 'T*ts up' !!!! Chairman, manager and players all gone !!!!
  16. Popped down to Leighton to watch Aylesbury v North Leigh,and altho it finished 0-0 ,it was a great game to watch, Southern League NL started brightly and just about shaded the first half,but aylesbury came back well in the 2nd 45 mins ! north leigh even managed to miss a last min penalty !!! Aylesbury had one final chance to win it,when giant striker Melford Simpson was clean thru,tried to go round the keeper but messed up royally !!!! 0-0 was prob right result, good game.
  17. Tring Athletic 1-0 Hanwell Town much better display from Tring today, pretty even first half but an early 2nd half goal from Sam Mitchell helped Athletic relax and play some great attacking football,only great saves from the Hanwell keeper saving them from a drubbing, Tom Vincent in the Tring goal not having a save to make, Hanwell seemed very subdued , pleased tring kept a clean sheet after tuesdays thrashing by berko
  18. Hertford Town 1 - 3 Tring Athletic went over to Hertford today thinkin the worst for Tring,New manager and much changed team !! and just before kick off my optimism was made worse when i found out Tring had 8 of the squad away or suspended !!!! its amazing what 90 minutes football can do to ,as Athletic produced a good display,dominating the first 45 minutes to go in 2-0 up,Fair play to Hertford tho,who came out in the 2nd half and put Tring under lots of pressure,pulling a goal back and putting another couple of chances wide,but Tring finished the stronger, with fit again record goalscorer Andy Humphreys getting his Hat Trick goal. Good hospitality from Hertford as usual, all in all a decent days work for Athletic
  19. Tring 2 v 8 Redbridge Redbridge were a very good side,and the score looks a bit of a shocker for Tring,but in parts athletic played some ok football, Redbridge had 7 shots in the first half,5 went in !!!!!! Tring scorers were Matt Jarvis and Vinnie Iannone !! could be a tough year for Tring with many players moving on after a change of manager ! 3 players who scored 74 goals last season have moved to other teams,and it will take new players time to settle in, i predict a mid table finish this year !! allthough Tring have failed to win a pre season game,performances have been ok, all but one fixture against level 4 teams !! Slough (0-2) Wealdstone (0-1) Hemel (0-4) Kings Langley(1-2) Leighton Town(2-2) thought manager would have picked an easier last pre season game,before this saturdays start against Hertford,but not to disheartened !!! Just finish by saying Redbridge players and management were a good bunch,understand manager and a few players were at Stanstead last season !!
  20. Hemel looked like a team 2 leagues above Tring last night, 4-0 didn't flatter hemel, good workout for Tring tho !!
  21. Good luck to Ryan up at Royston, did well for us down in Tring last season, he has gone to a good club !!
  22. Tring Athletic are at home to Wealdstone on saturday 30th July
  23. Tring Army never made it to Broxbourne last night,but Jason Beck played quite well, got under the skin of the home team and was warned by the ref a couple of times,came off towards the end of the game with cramp !!! A good hard fought game between Borough and Tring,with tring raising they're game in the 2nd half to secure the points, Ryan Redford and Tony Fields getting athletics goals !! another plus for Tring was the performance of Striker Gary Dixon,the former Hitchin,Boreham Wood and Aveley man,making a comeback after a couple of years out of the game Also a big thanks to all involved at Broxbourne for their fine hospitality before and after the game
  24. Not really, they did look dangerous going forward as usual, but were very shaky at the back, Vinnie Iannone and Ash Addison gave CSP s defense a torrid time !!! just a good game all round, a much better game from Tring,a huge improvement on recent cup games !!
  25. Was at the game last night against Chalfont,and what a performance from Tring !!! i had the misfortune to witness saturdays abject display against Dunstable in the Vase ,so turned up fearing the worst !!! but from the outset athletic went at chalfont, and apart from a ten minute spell at the start of the 2nd half,it was all Tring !! captain Graham Hall heading the winner mid way thru the 2nd !! Slightly dissapointed with the crowd of 97, but those that were there,saw a great game of attacking football,its amazing how one win can erase the memory of some aweful displays from Tring in the last month or so,luckily all cup matches !!!
