  1. 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)


  2. 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 


  3. We haven't had many great striker IN THEIR PRIME, but have to say, we were spoilt with Lewis Putman's best years in ssml football, think he should've earnt a move to a pro club off the back of that wonder season.

    Honourable mention, Andy Humphrey at Tring. What a performer over the years, he'll go down in folklore in that part of the world. 

     

    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 !


  4. 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


  5. 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.


  6. 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


  7. 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


  8. 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 !!


  9. 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


  10. 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 !!!

     

     


  11. AFC Dunstable 1-2 Tring Athletic

     

    Tring managed to progress into the next round,but only just !!! a great crowd of over 200 saw Dunstable control the first 25-30 mins,scoring a goodt goal for a deserved 1-0 lead .Tring managed to claw there way back into the game when Ryan Redford slipped the ball under the keeper from close in !! 1-1. this seemed to lift Athletic and it was Nick Jackson who cracked in a 25 yard screamer just before half time 1-2

    The 2nd half was a very tight affair,with dunstable pushing tring back into their own half for long periods,Mike Underwood in the Tring goal making some good saves,Tring missed a good chance to wrap the game up,the AFC keeper pulling off a great double save !!!! Tring managed to hang on for the last few minutes to reach the last 64 for the first time in there history !!

    A huge thanks to Simon Bullard and the Dunstable Committee for looking after all from Tring,and with that side,it wont be long before they are playing premiere division football
