FT Knaphill 3-2 Dorking

RPV 0-3 Windsor - Lazarczuk 2, Lucas

Now now Smudge never post until you have all the facts rather than a perception.....

Sandhurst 1-1 Lammas

 

We started like a train first half and played some nice football at times, Sandhurst at the back were all over the place at the back and they looked liked they would be this seasons whipping boys. We went Into the break 1 up and disappointed is wasn't more. Then credit to Sandhurst they grafted there way back into the game and restricted us from many opportunities. They managed to equalise and take a point after one of there players was sent off too. From our side of things a bit disappointed with a point and not 3 but were take it.

Horley Town 2 Colliers Wood United 1

 

The very much changed Horley Town took on and beat Colliers Wood United ,only skipper Tom Winsor was a regular last season from the first team and the average age must have dropped by 10 years. 

 

Town took the lead through Kris Adewales who hammered past the keeper who was caught of his line for a great opening goal. Ten minutes later Colliers Wood were awarded a penalty four a foul in the box and they scored to make it one one. With fifteen to go an excellent free kick from well outside the box was fired home by Declan Smith giving the Woods goal keeper no chance and put Town two one up. It was still 2-1 at half time. In the second half Wood through everything at Town but the young defence held out well with skipper Tom Winsor leading from the back.

Oh dear, Smudge has been on the sauce again.

 

I'm sure we all knew he would find reason to turn on Windsor this year now Guernsey have gone, but so soon, and on such flimsy grounds?

 

Oh well. C'est la vie.

 

Rother,turn on Windsor never,everyone from Windsor I spoke to last night,Manager,Supporters,Players,Players Parents,were my kind of people,honest and open.Just a shame that your Committee Members,had to leave the Party early.I sometimes take offence,at people like your goodself,saying 'Smudge has been on the sauce again' if 2 pints is on the sauce,then yes I was.But at least I spent £6 more than your Hierachy  did,call yourself a Community Club,you do not know how lucky you are to have such a Great Manager and squad of young Players,playing for nothing.

Hi Smudge, Windsor had a couple of committee members at the game last night. I believe they were in the boardroom before the game and at half time. After the game they had to leave straight after as were transporting non committee members one of whom has been quite ill - and it was great to see that person make it back to an away game after nearly a year. The other committee person was the kitman, who directly after the game was tied up (not literally, but who knows!) in the changing rooms! Hope that explains as Windsor do make every effort and are always fully appreciative of the hospitality laid on by clubs in the league.

Here's my report from the match last night. I thought Westfield played quite well, and although they did get a bit direct towards the end, it gave us a bit more trouble as we were unable to close down the play in the middle of the park. I think that's good for Epsom that the other team had to bypass our midfield in order to create chances.

 

On that showing I have no doubt that Westfield will survive quite comfortably this season.

 

 

Epsom & Ewell 2-1 Westfield

Combined Counties League Premier Division

Tuesday 6th August 2013

 

McKay double clinches more points for the Salts.

 

Recently promoted Westfield were the visitors to High Road for Epsom and Ewell's first home game of the season. Both sides had won their opening matches 1-0 but the visitors were a bit of an unknown quantity, having not met for nearly eleven years. 

 

Unsurprisingly, an unchanged eleven started the match following the performance against Alton but it was apparent early that this team were going to be much tougher opponents. In an even opening fifteen minutes, they competed well, held as much possession as we did, and had a bit of pace down the flanks. Fortunately in Sam Currie and Jamie Hatfield we have one of the better full back pairings in the league and so the danger came to nothing.

 

We nearly took the lead in the 16th minute. An Epsom corner caused panic in the box and the ball found Alex McKay who got his shot on target but the ball was somehow hooked off the line by a defender before the loose ball was volleyed over by Anthony Panayi.

 

Alex McGregor then had a sighter from twenty-five yards that was heading into the top corner but the keeper Pavoir made a fine save to tip the ball over. However, in the 28th minute, he curled over a free kick from a similar area and McKay was there again to head the ball in from close range.   Karl Doughlin was unlucky not to score a few minutes later when he received the ball from the left, beat his man, but then scuffed his shot which missed the near post by an inch or two.

 

The visitors were still well in this match themselves, and Kieran Campbell was alert to make a good low save for a corner, and fortunately an unmarked Westfield player was only able to head the ball wide from that set piece, when he probably should have done better.

 

The Salts started the second half brightly with Reece Jackson turning and getting in a low shot that was well saved, but the keeper could do nothing about our second goal in the 51st minute, when a corner wasn't dealt with, the loose ball fell to Jackson whose effort was blocked and fell to McKay. Despite actually being sat on the ground at the time, he hooked the ball up into the top corner skilfully to double our advantage.

 

Jackson was just wide after another good turn and shot before being replaced by Robbie Burns, while Matt Smith came on in midfield for the tiring Doughlin. However, despite holding out fairly well for 89 minutes, we conceded in the 90th with a shot that seemed to creep in at the near post from Hennessey, and whilst it was unfortunate to concede so late, it must be said that Westfield were deserving of it, and 2-1 was a much fairer final score. On another day this game could have quite easily ended up a draw.

Now now Smudge never post until you have all the facts rather than a perception.....

 

Totally agree Krooner.

 

Smudge, you may actually have had a good point, but you need to get both sides of the story or else your views will be seen as biased or having a hidden agenda. I don't believe that you have one, but you should have spoken to someone at Windsor privately first before accusing them on here.

Krooner well aware of the facts,as for the response from Geggy holds no water.Why not out of courtesy did Windsor FC  not  ask someone to attend the Boardroom,on their behalf,think it is League rule,FACT I know it is a League Rule,Mr.McCarthy of Croydon Municipal got Fined for not attending at Farnham 3 Seasons ago,when he had a far more valid excuse than what Geggy has put forward.

Rich,I know I have a good point.As for being Biased or having a Hidden Agenda,why should I have.How could I speak to someone if they had departed.

It's all about balance mate.

 

Last year you raised a lot of good points about Guernsey, but there were also a lot of other anti-Guernsey threads, so after a while people stopped seeing your views as impartial.

 

Every now and then teams struggle to get people to a game and/or have to leave soon after the game. Maybe it was just one of those occasions, but the fact you gave Windsor no chance to defend themselves before posting on here was the wrong way of doing it.

 

A simple pm might have provided you with an answer and/or apology if required.

A lot of anti Guernsey threads.

 

Yes about Crap Hotels being used which were changed.

 

How GFCTV was affecting Mainland Crowds although many Clubs ignored my advice to not give them permission,thereby suffering with lower crowds.

 

Early Kick Offs being granted by Mainland Clubs to Guernsey,that benefitted Guernsey financially,but did not see any advantage to Mainland Clubs.

 

Seems to me that too many CCL Clubs and posters on here,are afraid to challenge the Status Quo,and just follow like sheep.

 

It's okay to knock Chessington and Hook though they are fair game are they?

Smudge, I will not explain the whys and wherefores of the club or its personnel when you accuse us of having poor manners when you couldn't even be bothered to find out the facts before posting !  Needless to say I acted in the way I would expect other clubs to do and made sure we were in the boardroom pre-match and at half time but did tell our hosts [and the referee] that we had to leave immediately post-match which they understood fully [and the reasons for doing so!] therefore if that is poor manners then I'm obviously a poor-mannered person, but only in your eyes !. 

Returning the poor manners accusation I would say that you also show poor manners as despite having been told on several occasions last season that our managers surname is Woodham you still insist on calling him Woodward and to suggest we're lucky to have assembled a group of young players discredits the manager as well as it's down to an eye for talent and his selection as opposed to luck.

We don't have a heirachy by the way, just a very hard working committee who at the end of the day are supporters first and foremost.  The one criteria for our committee is that you 'do' rather than 'talk' and anyone who wants to buy into that ethos is more than welcome to come on board - where would you fit in as it certainly wouldn't be for your PR skills ?

Apologies for getting Mick Woodhams name wrong,for the First time in my recollection,but you will say differently of course.You misread my comments you got lucky,it was meant in the context of after wasting a fortune on Superstars that failed in gaining you promotion.You employed a Manager known to you previously at Windsor FC,who had a better knowledge and contacts than the previous incumbents did.He went with Youth mainly and is doing a great job.However how long do you think you can keep him and the Players you have together,when not paying them money.That is what I mean by lucky.So you had the pre-match food and drink,then informed them that you could not stay around,so Refs attend these also how cosy.If I was a Player playing for Windsor FC,I would be annoyed that after putting in a Match Winning performance,no Committee Member would congatulate me post match in the Clubhouse for my efforts.You are fast becoming the new Corinthian Casuals of Non League.DONT PAY,DONT STAY.

You're making conclusions when you should concentrate on facts [1] Who said anything about pre-match food and drink ? [2] Who said the ref was in the boardroom pre-match when I spoke to him ?

Most of our players wouldn't know who was on the committee or not as we certainly don't give it the big 'I am' as far as that's concerned.  Being a committee member at Windsor is about volunteering to help the club not wearing a blazer and tie and saying 'look at me do you know who I am'.  As far as I'm aware every Windsor supporter applauded our players off at the end as we always do win or lose and the players themselves would be the first to admit that, if again you had bothered to ask instead of jumping to conclusions !  As far as keeping the manager/players and for how long it's really quite simple and the same at most clubs - nobody knows !  I can't foresee our manager going anywhere soon as he's a Windsor man through and through and is under no illusions as to what we want to achieve and how we will do it and he knows he will have our backing 100%.  No doubt some players will leave because they're not getting a regular start or because they think £20 a week elsewhere makes the grass greener but there won't be wholesale changes as character/temperament/committment are all attributes Mick looks for in a player as well as their skill on the field so most if not all of the players are here for the duration and have bought into the mindset Mick has established - only one promise has been made by Mick to the players which is you'll get 40 weeks of nothing but you will get games under your belt and you will be in the shop window !   One promise the club itself has made is that we would never stand in the way of someone [management or players] who have been offered the opportunity to better themselves and by that we mean playing at a higher standard as opposed to the amount of money they can earn so if anyone does leave for that reason they do so with our blessings and best wishes !  

Money is not the be all and end all in football as you would know if you asked our players why they're at Windsor.  The opportunity to play in a decent side in a decent ground on an excellent pitch in front of crowds numbered in hundreds instead of tens with a good management and coaching setup and professional medical back up goes part of the way but other things within the infrastructure of the club to support them are in place which makes it a pleasant atmosphere to go about their chosen sport which they do for pleasure - no one is forced to play for us so we must be doing something right !

Ash Utd 1 Alton Town 1

 

first home game for the new management & team & by the end of the game still unbeaten.

 

Played better than we did on saturday, however still wasn't enough to gain the win against a determined Alton side. First half we played ok & created some good chance, but the goal which put us in front was very fortunate as the ball seem well out off play but we kept going Alton all stopped waiting for a whistle but that only happened to signal the goal.

Second half Alton came out quickly & determined. By midway into the half Alton had equalised with a cracking shot from the edge off the box. Both side had chances to win it but by the end a draw & a fair result

A quick use of the search facility shows 4 examples of you using "Woodward". Oh well.

 

And the rest of the above really doesn't fit any sane description of the word "lucky".

 

It's pure gobbledigook as usual.

Never ever thought that I would ever see a South Park fan on this website criticising another clubs pitch.Yes the Arena was not up to its usual decent standard,but nor was the Officiating in my opinion,Ryan O'Sullivan has gone downhill fast,from a Referee in the Redhill Sunday League,who had time to speak to players and hardly ever flashed a card.To the now I am the centre of attention Official that awaits Clubs now,9 cards the last time I saw him at Westfield last season,and 5 tonight in what was a Mundane Affair,that South Park thoroughly deserved to win 3-0.Do not think Wazza had a save to make all evening,such was their dominance.And yes I did speak to Ryan,and told him my opinions,another £50 for the F.A.,did he stay and buy himself a drink NO.
