Savagebee -  You probably don't know that, in the photograph, the challenge the North Greenford United player is about to make broke Dom's leg and he was out of the game for eighteen months, it could have ended his career as it was a very bad break.

Ouch 😣

Isn't Dom Rhone's day job a Dentist? 

Was also a big part of the Southall FC team that won the SSML Divison One title in 2017/18.

The usual poor comment from Rhodes which is why I did not reply.

Savagebee - Do you know anyone from the 1982/83 Middlesex League Premier Division winning team who then gained promotion to Division One of the London Spartan League:

Back row (left right): Mick McLoughlin (chairman), Dereck Sanders (trainer), Bob Surey, Steve Senior, Dick Parkinson, William O'Brien, John Russell, Dennis Labostide, Clive Lomas (manager). Front: Alan Jenkins, Steve Berry, Phil Sheldon, Michael Johnson, Paul Johnson, Densel Wil- liamson and Tony Thomas. The club lost 2-1 to Northwood after extra time in the Harrow Senior Charity Cup at the weekend."

A bit random again folks, it's another slow news day although I've noticed it is picking up a bit now. Did North Greenford United ever play or train on the old Lyons & Co sports ground adjacent to their factory complex where the rapidly growing company decided to move to in 1919 largely due to its very close proximity to the Grand Union Canal which flowed directly into the River Thames from the then village of Greenford Green, following WWI Greenford combined a mixture of idyllic Countryside and industrial works despite being slightly remote. Anyway this picture, including Eusebio, was taken at the Lyons & Co Sports Ground where Portugal trained during the 1966 World Cup when obviously they reached the Semi Final, losing to England:

How will non league footy clubhouses cope with all this?

If i go to a Pub its to relax and have fun so it sounds like Pubs will now not be the place to do that? 🤔 As there are so many rules and regulations now.

You have to queue up to go into a Pub 🤔

Read somewhere yesterday that you won't be able to talk loud in Pubs 😂

Queue here queue there wait here wait there you can't go there you can go there 🤔 

Booking a table, downloading apps and giving your name and phone number and you have to queue up every time you need a p#ss 😀

Nah if I fancy a drink it's the front room or the garden for me now and if I get bored with that I might pop to the park for a drink 😀

R.I.P. The Pub 😟

Photographs from North Greenford United v Enfield Town, played at Hampton & Richmond Borough on 3 May 2010, in the 2009/10 Middlesex Senior Charity Cup Final, Combined Counties League Premier Division North Greenford United lifted the trophy that evening by winning 1-0, the Cold End was in attendance and you can feel his disappointment when penning the report below as he is an Enfield Town fan however his team had fortuitously only played one game to reach the Final:

So sorry to do this to you folks but it's him I'm afraid, at Windsor FC v North Greenford United on 15 April 2017 in a 2016/17 Combined Counties League Premier Division encounter at Stag Meadow, the season prior to North Greenford United getting a sideways move to the SSML, the game ended 2-2 with Anthony O'Connor and Daniel Vincent netting for North Greenford United:

Nice ground is Wndsor FC.

Two ex Hanwell Town players there.

I saw Ant O'Connor a couple of months ago driving to Kingston 😃 he's settled at Harrow Borough FC these days.

Heard a RUMOUR recently that Dan Vincent is joining Brentham FC of the Middlesex County Premier Division to boost there 2020/21 title challenge. At that level he could/should be a great signing for them.

Photographs and match report from Aylesbury FC v North Greenford United, at Haywood Way on Tuesday 18 August 2015, in a 2015/16 Southern League Division One Central fixture resulting in a 3-1 win for Aylesbury FC despite North Greenford United taking the lead. Very strangely it was the same 3-1 result as when the two sides met at Haywood Way in April the season before as well as the season before that:

On his day Dom Rhone is a top left sided player. 

Savagebee - It is Dom Rhone's birthday today, yes, he had 'silky skills' which not many players possess and could quite easily have gone all the way:

He's at Broadfields United. A disappointing result for North Greenford United last night in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round at Berkeley Fields against Hellenic League Premier Division Brimscombe & Thrupp, losing 2-1:

A decent player should be playing a level up in my opinion.

North Greenford United's line up for last Tuesday's SSML Premier Division fixture with Crawley Green at Berkeley Fields which resulted in a 1-1 draw, Joseph Mills netted on 74 minutes only for Crawley Green to equalise three minutes later, that has pretty much been the story of North Greenford United's season so far even though that is their only stalemate. Since disappointingly losing at home to Hellenic League Premier Division Brimscombe & Thrupp in the FA Cup they have struggled to get a stranglehold on their League form and it's only the FA Vase that is currently keeping the season alive and kicking with an away Second Qualifying Round tie at Oxhey Jets tomorrow, having comfortably disposed of Hellenic League Division One East Chalvey Sports 4-1 in the First Qualifying Round. League defeats at Arlesey Town and Leverstock Green, albeit just by the odd goal, weren't exactly encouraging for the long haul ahead and although there was a 3-1 home win over Edgware Town there was also a 5-2 home defeat to Biggleswade United who, up until that point, couldn't buy a win for love nor money under new boss Cristian Colas.

North Greenford United's line up and match programme for Saturday's SSML Premier Division fixture with Potton United at Berkeley Fields which resulted in a 1-0 win for the Hutchinson Hollow outfit. Current SSML Premier Division form is still poor however it seems the Club can do no wrong in the FA Vase and won 3-1 at Oxhey Jets last week in a Second Qualifying Round tie with goals from Toluwaloju James, Andrew Manitou and Charlie Mitchell. Colin Jones men now travel to Combined Counties League Division One Sandhurst Town in the First Round proper on Saturday 31 October however there are two very difficult League fixtures to negotiate prior to that, at home to second in the table Colney Heath tomorrow evening, see match programme, and at table toppers Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday (24 October):

North Greenford United's line up and match programme for last night's SSML Premier Division fixture with high flying Colney Heath which resulted in a straight forward 4-1 victory for the visitors, Captain and 'Mr Reliable' Andrew Manitou netted for North Greenford United who now have three successive away games, after playing five of their first seven League fixtures at Berkeley Fields, starting with a daunting visit to Hall Road to take on table topping Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday (24 October):
