Didn't deserve to lose today both teams played well and deserved a share of the spoils. Referee ruined the game for second week in a row and left both dugouts baffled at decisions backed up by two clueless linos. Gave us a pen in the first half that left both sets of players,management and spectators shocked as it didn't appear anything had happened. Chesham played some good football and try and play the right way which was great to see.

I went to this game. Agree Referee made numerous bizarre decisions, although felt you deserved the penalty as the number 6 was climbing all over your player. Very open game. Thought a draw was fair, especially when the linesman clearly missed the offside goal you conceded in the last minute, as he couldn't keep up with players 50 years his junior.

Only arrived as the pre-match meal was being served so as to avoid a suspension . . . 304 in attendance today boosted by HTFC's traveling army which is great for our league! Can't understand why the Lowfield "support" come week-after-week yet remain silent and don't support their team . . .

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

223 @ clinton? What a random boost in attendance! Anyone know why the boost of 200?

How are you boys going to catch up with your league games, only played 9 so far and majority of the league have played twice as many? With no flood lights midweek catch ups are going to be difficult surely?

The club will lose at least another three Saturdays due to County Cup, Anagram Records and League Representative fixtures. Have ensured that any away games against teams with lights will be played midweek but come April it will be a problem.

Understood.

 

Surprised Kents didn't play any games over Xmas period with that potential pile up.

Division Two clubs were asked if they wanted a game over Christmas (as normally they are given the week off).

Very few wanted a game and those that requested it were allocated as soon as I received their responses, Kent were the fifth club to respond and I had already arranged the two games before Kent replied however I did contact all other clubs again but no opponents could be found

After seeing some of the attendances the clubs have missed out by the looks of it

Monday 28th December

PREMIER DIVISION

Attendances in brackets

 

0-1 Leverstock Green v Holmer Green (No attendance given)

 

DIVISION ONE

0-7 Arlesey Town Reserves v Baldock Town (61)

 

 

A good result for Holmer Green and another goal for Dean Allen and for me Holmer Green for me have been the surprise team in the Premier Division this season.

 

I bet the Baldock Town Ultras ;)  were singing there hearts out big time and that was also a great result for Southall FC.

Are the Arlesey Reserves actually ran as a reserve side or as a seperate team?

 

What I mean by that is, do the lads in the reserves step up to 1st and players is 1st team drop down (for fitness etc)?

 

 

It seem's they run as abit of a seperate side, as opposed to St Albans ressies who use it as more of a Youth/injured players returning side or Chesham reso's who use it as a bully side to boost first team morale. When in doubt they throw a spine in there to try smash a team to get them up for certain first team fixtures.

Understood.

Having played for reserve sides before it should always be a mix of youth and 1st team with the aim at developing youth ready for first team.

 

Arlesey Res seem to be whipping boys for the last few seasons and I can't see much youth development which is a shame because the facilities there are brilliant and deserve a successful youth development programme.

Yeah we wanted Christmas games but didn't get them. I know it's a killer, were in a semi final and quarter final too along with the representative side playing on Saturdays too could be another couple Saturday's missed there.

 

This fixture pile up without doubt is probably going to cost us our best shot at the league but we will give it our best efforts. Two Cups important for us especially the county cup.

 

Just the 23 league games left.
