That's disgusting isn't it, maybe you should just cancel the game in protest

😲 It all continues to get more and more silly every day.

Well done 👍

Bedmond United 2 Harpenden Town Reserves 4 (Toms Lane)

A groundhopper from another Forum was at this one on Tuesday evening:

Bedmond United v Harpenden Town Reserves 2-4 (ht 1-1)
Venue: Bedmond Sports and Social Club, Tom's Lane, Bedmond
Attendance: 25 h/c (f&n)
These are two new teams and they have been placed, respectively, in Division Three and Division One of the Herts Senior County League. On tonight's showing that's probably about right. Bedmond United are being managed by Dan Welch who started the successful Sunday League team AFC London Road three years ago, and is now trying his hand at Saturday football. I have to say that he doesn't appear to be trying to modify his rather 'extrovert' behaviour for this new venture. His banter with the referee was good natured, which was just as well, as the referee forgot to bring his whistle on to the pitch and we started without it!

The teams were well matched early on with chances at both ends. Bedmond took the lead with an assertive tackle in midfield which released the two front runners who combined to beat the two defenders and slot home. Bedmond's secret weapon was a player who could propel a tremendous throw into the penalty box from almost anywhere on the touchline, but no one could capitalise on these many opportunities. Likewise, Harpenden were getting to the right bye-line at will, but time and again the low cross would elude everyone. Finally, on the half hour one of these crosses was diverted into the net and Harpenden started to control the game leading up to halftime.

The visitors took the lead immediately after the break when a Bedmond defender was caught in possession and the ball eventually found the net. Two minutes later the home team equalised with a penalty and they then had a good spell before starting to tire. Harpenden were looking fitter and this benefitted their younger players who were showing some good quality on the ball. Twice in the last twenty minutes they converted crosses with uncontested headers and also hit the bar, as they ran out easy winners.

Despite the ground being a mere fifteen minute drive from home, this is my first visit. But from cycling past it hundreds of times, I know that it is unchanged in the last thirty years. Except, that is, for the green and white plastic barriers on three sides of the pitch which are looking a bit tired these days. The fourth side of the pitch is hard up against a row of trees and then a side road. The pavilion contains changing rooms and a bar that was open throughout. At the end of the building there is a covered patio, but this runs at ninety degrees to the pitch so is not ideal for more than a few people to view the whole of the pitch. The car park was just big enough for tonight's attendees.
