Potton United's Reserve side compete in the Uhlsport United Counties League Reserve Division and kicked off their campaign on Saturday (5 September) with a pulsating 5-3 win over Daventry Town Reserves at the Hutchinson Hollow, Potton United travel to Manor Fields this evening (Wednesday) to take on Milton Keynes Irish Reserves who also won their first League game on Saturday so it should be an interesting fixture. On Saturday Potton United entertain Huntingdon Town Reserves, kick off 3.00pm.

As anticipated, Potton United Reserves were involved in a thriller at Manor Fields last night (Wednesday) going down narrowly 4-3 to Milton Keynes Irish Reserves in a Uhlsport United Counties League Reserve Division fixture however that only tells half the story. The hosts raced into a 4-0 lead but rather than throw in the towel at that point Potton United bravely rolled up their sleeves and proceeded to get back into the proceedings, in the end they just ran out of time when pressing for an equaliser.

Although Potton United's Reserve side ply their trade in the Uhlsport United Counties League Reserve Division they are still eligible to enter the Bedfordshire FA Intermediate Challenge Cup and have been drawn away to Cranfield United Reserves in the First Round of the competition on Saturday 26 September, kick off 2.30pm. It's arguably the toughest draw they could have received however if successful they will host the winners of the Totternhoe Reserves v Sharnbrook tie at the Hutchinson Hollow on Saturday 24  October, that could well give Karen a fixture headache as Potton United's First team are due to meet Colney Heath at home that afternoon in the SSML Premier Division. Last Saturday Potton United Reserves took care of Huntingdon Town Reserves, winning 3-0, and will next travel to Rothwell Corinthians Reserves on Saturday before hosting Yaxley Reserves next Tuesday (22 September):

Karen must have breathed a huge sigh of relief on Saturday when Potton United Reserves were well beaten 8-3 at Crawley Road by Cranfield United Reserves in a Bedfordshire FA Intermediate Challenge Cup First Round tie, had they won it would have created a fixture conundrum for her during October. The Reserve side are back in Uhlsport United Counties League Reserve Division action next Saturday (3 October) when they entertain Desborough Town Reserves followed by a midweek trip to Willen Road to meet Newport Pagnell Town Reserves on Tuesday 6 October. Last Tuesday (22 September) the Reserve side were unfortunately invoved in an abandonment at the Hutchinson Hollow shortly before the interval against Yaxley Reserves when a Potton United player fell awkwardly on his shoulder and back and an ambulance had to be called, the game will be re-arranged. The First team meanwhile look forward to their third SSML Premier Division fixture of the new campaign tomorrow (Tuesday) when they travel to Newport Pagnell Town having beaten Eynesbury Rovers and disappointingly lost to Wembley thus far, both at home, having exited the FA Cup last Wednesday at Grays Athletic (see link) they can still look forward to a home FA Vase Second Qualifying Round tie against Essex Senior League Clapton on 10 October.

Both Potton United Reserves recent Uhlsport United Counties League Reserve Division fixtures against Desborough Rangers last Saturday (3 October) and at Willen Road last night were called off, just to rub Dead Sea salt into their wounds next Saturday's Reserve Division fixture at Harborough Town Reserves is also postponed as the Leicestershire Club's First team have a home FA Vase Second Qualifying Round tie, as do Potton United's First team when they entertain Essex Senior League Clapton followed by a League fixture at London Colney the following Tuesday (13 October). The First team were twiddling their thumbs last Saturday when their SSML Premier Division fixture at Oxhey Jets was the first of many to be called off however they were victorious last night at the Hutchinson Hollow in a League outing against Tring Athletic (see match programme and report), Aaron McCardle with a brace and Liam Andrews scored in a 3-1 win despite going a goal behind to the beleaguered Cow Lane Club who have lost all of their six league games so far. This followed on from a hard fought 2-2 draw at Willen Road on Tuesday 29 September with Niall Jones and, who else, Aaron McCardle netting, the home side finished with nine men however Potton United failed to capitalise:

Potton United Reserves have played the least number of Uhlsport United Counties League Reserve Division games this season for various reasons, whereas Huntingdon Town Reserves for example have fulfilled twelve fixtures thus far Potton United Reserves have only completed five and, as a result, are languishing second from bottom in the table. It's an unsatisfactory state of affairs for the Reserve side who have at least won two of those five League games early on in the campaign, there has also been a disappointing 8-3 defeat at Cranfield United Reserves in the Bedfordshire FA Intermediate Challenge Cup First Round. Meanwhile the First team have been in action on a regular basis and sit in fifth spot in the SSML Premier Division table with five victories from eight League games played, see match programmes below from all of their seven home fixtures so far including a very disappointing FA Vase Second Qualifying Round 3-1 defeat to Essex Senior League Clapton, following the 2-1 First Qualifying Round home win over Biggleswade United a month or so ago:

Potton United should have been entertaining Petersfield Town in the FA Vase First Round proper tomorrow afternoon but instead they travel to Bell Close to take on Leighton Town in a SSML Premier Division fixture. The home defeat to Essex Senior League Clapton (see match report) on 10 October was very disappointing despite being without the injured Sam Willis and Callum Wilson, leading at the interval through an early George Brinkman goal made it all the more hard to swallow and the first period also saw a penalty stop from keeper Josh Mollison. The Reserve side at least had a Uhlsport United Counties League Reserve Division fixture on Tuesday evening when Cogenhoe United Reserves visited the Hutchinson Hollow however they came away with a 3-0 win, tomorrow the Reserves entertain Rothwell Corinthians Reserves hoping not to record their fifth successive defeat:

It was an old fashioned thriller at Bell Close on Saturday 31 October (see match report, photographs and the match programme), I gather there were some handbags around the seventy minute mark involving all 22 players and some Coaching staff which resulted in George Brinkman seeing red as well as Leighton Town's Captain Jordon Frederick. Luke Pyman was later dismissed by pernickety Referee Mario Stetakovic who also brandished yellow cards like confetti, the dismissal of Pyman arguably cost Potton United the game when they conceded very late on having led 2-1 and also 3-2 at the interval. The encounter had everything you can think of and will be remembered for many a long year:

I know very little, if anything, about Potton as a place, what's it like, it looks very 'sleepy' from these photographs:
