Saturday 12th April Matches

Recommended Posts

Neavsey there is always two sides to a coin.

 

We didn't stay as we weren't made to feel welcome. We shook everyone's hand after enduring a tough 90 minutes from a well drilled farleigh side, but what leaves a sour taste was the constant kicking, barraging the poor ref who rightly booked your players for bad tackles. Spitting at us is the lowest of the low. And to top it all off, both your players and dugout shouting on numerous occasions next time you foul him do it properly. All show a lack of professionalism and dare I use your own words 'bad sportsmanship'?

 

I personally felt sorry for the ref and linesman ln the bar side as the constant abuse they got was uncalled for.

 

Back to the game, and again I'm going to give my view (all the way from centre back so it may be slightly off ;) )

Spelly could have scored two in the first 5 mins but two good saves from your keeper. The next 20 minutes became a lump fest as both teams just hoofed the ball and a fre kick for farleigh was headed over from 10 yards.

Good Spelly pressure down the left led to our left winger get clattered by your keeper and a stone wall penalty was given (which the ref got an earful for by some farleigh players)

1-0 at half time was a very fair result seeing as the home side didn't muster a single shot on target.

Second half and again the farliegh keeper made a great save following a move down the left. The next 20 minutes belonged to farliegh who upped their game and pressed all over, and a great goal from your left winger levelled the game. We had to postpone the game for a few minutes as the farleigh celebrations went on a little whole ;).

 

Then the last 20 was another slugfest, like two heavyweights on the last round just exchanging blows. I won't elaborate on the farleigh striker spitting, but on the same not our player shouldn't raise his hands even if in retaliation.

All that was left was for a long ball in the 90th minute to fall to the Spelly striker to volley home.

Yes we celebrated, we were seconds from a cup final. Albeit farleigh had one last chance but were sniffed out on the line.

 

After the game we all shook hands, said the pleasantries, calmed down the argument in the crowd and washed and went home. Wrongly or rightly. But good luck for the rest of the season.

Good win for the Lammas today, Sean Ryan and Jay Redrup were superb today, and a great goal from Julius Mngadi with a cracking free kick.

 

Massive week for the team now, Cup Final on Wednesday and Spelrhorne away on Saturday.

 

Good luck to Worcester Park for the rest of the season.

Well Done to South Park.  A league table doesn't lie at the end of a season.  Good Luck at Step 4 next season.

Windsor 1-3 Westfield

Feared for us at kick off with more missing and a number of u18s in show

 

Mattered not as first half we were magnificent. If Windsor could defend as well as they moan particularly the skipper(who had an awful match) they may do a bit better.

3 up at half time but home side improved after the break and scored an early goal. Needed Bradders to make a few good saves but overall never looked that much troubled

I wouldnt say run out of beer but when i left the clubhouse jigs of the stuff was being thrown around and half the foam roof tiles had been punched through!

 

The game itself, first half was poor from both sides. Second half Park were a lot better. Camberely keeper was the busier and made some great stops. Lavery scored which the refs assistant gave as it was one of those was it or wasnt it over the line moment. Chris smith rattled the bar 2 mins later and i dont recall wazza having to make any saves in the second period.

 

Camberely are a strong side but are sometimes a little to predictable with the long ball game. Showed good sportmanship at the end when Park received the league trophy

My view of proceedings was that Westfield took their chances and Windsor didn't. I had a really interesting chat with one of the Westfield management team as well as one of their players. Good people both of them and I felt they deserved the points. I won't make any excuses about how poor we were first half but no matter what level you play at you cannot afford to allow free headers in your own box from crosses. The first was a bit special and many a keeper would have struggled to get near it.

 

The second half showed much more spirit and determination from the hosts and with a bit more composure could have snatched a draw. 

 

As for the referee, certainly not one of the better ones I have seen this season but no way did he contribute to our poor performance. That's right. I am not blaming the referee. His lowest point of the game was to ignore that the ball had gone out of play and then award a free kick when a player slipped over. 

 

Next up is the B&B Senior Trophy final. How many fit players will Windsor have? One player with a broken bone in his foot and another with a broken jaw.

Well done South Park probably deserved win to day on balance of play. But the goal nerve was and that commen tcame from a South Park supporter. Ref was shocking you would of thought the League would of made sure we had someone that knew the rules.

 

Or the laws of the game perhaps ;)

Match report v Chessington & Hook is now here:

 

http://www.eefconline.co.uk/LCN53.html

 

A great start was followed by a real slump and although we got back on top again we still managed to concede again before getting the equaliser shortly afterwards. However, a draw was a fair result and just saying that is concerning in itself.

 

All four goal scorers on the day had played for us this season!

 

Congratulations to South Park on the title. It is fitting that you had to defeat the second placed side to clinch the title and although I'm sure our boys will give you a good game next week, I'm equally sure that you won't be too concerned about the result as you might have been a few weeks ago.

 

Can I just say on behalf of all proper Epsom fans, we do not know nor have never endorsed Stan The Man. Our Committee do not know him, and no regular supporters do either. He does not speak for anyone who truly supports our club. I think in truth, you probably know that anyway but I'm just putting it on the record. I wonder which team he will "wind up on our behalf" next season.

Farnham Town 3-6 Ash U

Well done Ash.

Another good away win to keep the fight going

 

started well & 2 early goals which saw confidence grow & by half time 4-1. second half saw Farnham win a pen which also saw our keeper sent off but they missed it. Soon after though Farnham did pull a goal back but we still looked in control & scored 2 more goals before Farnham scored with almost the last kick off the game.

 

Now another 2 away games over easter but fingers crossed
