Saturday 6 November - SSML Results/Reports


Recommended Posts

Another game mired in controversy for Jets, who took the points at Pancake Lane but that's not what people are talking about.

For the second time in 3 weeks the unfortunate Sean Giordmaina was absolutely clattered by a goalkeeper well out of his box. Last time was at Harpenden and was pretty bad, should've been a red but the ref just gave a booking. This time was 10 times worse - think Harold Schumacker and Patrick Battison in 82. Bear in mind this was in the second minute midway in the Levy Green half, and the winger took a boot in the mouth well after the ball was gone (it wasn't even close, the shot had gone a good second earlier).

Needless to say the ref and the spineless linesman bottled it and decided in their wisdom that a yellow should suffice. Maybe they also failed to see the blood drenched towel I saw, or the player's tears as he was helped from the field. No protection whatsoever from the officials, the standard of officiating this season is at rock bottom, dishing out cards and sin bins for dissent and timewasting seems to be the priority but never mind about ABH, we'll ignore that. When real decisions have to be made they just fudge it every time and I'm sick of it. As for Sean, he spent the game at Watford General (and is OK I'm glad to say, notwithstanding his front teeth went through his lip).

As for the actual game (against 13 men, the nearside lino only had one arm that worked), the hosts took the lead on 14 after a defensive mistake let the striker in, but another brace from Kyal Williams swung the game Jets' way before the interval, the second a cross from 35 yards wide left near the sideline intended for Ben Barnett which sailed into the top right corner.

Second half wasn't great from either side, Lewis Todd making some good saves he shouldn't have had to make due to an unusually porous defensive display. This included a brilliant penalty save which he actually pushed out for a throw (you don't see that often) and another cracker at the death to keep the points, a man of the match performance. Off the pitch Levy are a lovely bunch, on it I'm mystified how they could be third in the league given their one dimensional hoofball, maybe they too had an off day as the ring rusty Jets certainly did. I'd have been happy with a point beforehand so three is a real bonus. I said on here after our defeat at London Colney that we'd play worse than we did that day and win, and today was that day.

Just had an update. 4-1 currently at Winslow. 2-0 at half time. Soon after restart Stotfold down to ten for a stamp, one of the management sent off and just had another player sent off. 

Winslow Boy - I wonder whether Patemondo is concerned about Stotfold's discipline since Brett Donnelly arrived at the Club, it could be their undoing. No doubt Curtis was instrumental again, I see he scored with a Beckham like free kick against Greece along with Rio Deall, Lewis Workman and substitute Robbie Carter:

Harefield United were unlucky this afternoon and deserved a point, possibly even all three, Aston Campbell scored the winner in the 86th minute:

Given that he is no longer involved at the Club then I doubt it

Yes, Rissy is conspicuous by his absence isn't he to explain what on earth is going on at Horsenden Lane, Munchkin makes a good point about Reserve and Development sides not being accepted into the League.

I’m afraid I’m not in the the habit of discussing club policies on a public forum, we know we have a problem and are trying desperately to resolve this but this is not the place to discuss them - sorry.

Oh really, nobody mentioned that Patemondo had left Stotfold on here, this was a fairly recent post that he made and he had no reservations about bringing Brett Donnelly to the Club following the departure of Luke Gregson despite Brett's unruly reputation:

Rhodes, I have never been with another club. I've been player, Manager and Chairman of Stotfold for over 20 years

Aylesbury Vale Dynamos 1 Flackwell Heath 3

Aylesbury Vale Dynamos interesting, and unrecognisable, team sheet this afternoon, Steve Bateman must be rueing his hasty decision to go to Haywood Way, had he bided his time he could have had his pick of Leighton Town, Dunstable Town or Crawley Green:

No photo description available.

At least Leverstock Green acknowledge in their fair report that goalkeeper Harold Schumacker, sorry, Alfie Bonfield should have been sent off for the foul on Oxhey Jets Sean Giordmaina in an eventful match:

I wouldn't say it was a hasty decision to rejoin Aylesbury Vale Dynamos, Steve has the contacts there, and it is the challenge of turning around their fortunes that would have appealed to him. He is chopping and changing players like the weather,though, and so far their form has been bleak under him with just 1 win, 1 draw and 5 or 6 losses including yesterday's result.  He keeps changing his line ups drastically in every game so this is never a sure way to bring about positive results but he knows enough players outside of the club, to eventually find the right formula.

I expect he thought it would be a lot easier than it has proven to be so far, and as well as recruiting well in some positions he has also lost a couple of good up and coming youngsters, to land himself with couple of dud/ past their sell by date players in my opinion,so it certainly hasn't been plain sailing for Steve Bateman thus far.

This week he brought in James Wetheral in the goalkeeper position, after changing to George Zammitt, 2 games ago ! That's 3 keepers in 7 or 8 games !  Hopefully this time he's got the right man between the sticks.

I like Steve Bateman,so I hope he get's it right. Having watched his handy work with Slough Town FC over a number of years I think I know his strengths and weaknesses. If he hasn't got too long in the tooth, one of his biggest strengths was recruitment,so I believe he will get it right.......eventually! 😀

This is a RC for Serious Foul Play.

I doubt you will find more than 2 people at the venue who thought otherwise.

You have to admit it's a poor show though Rissy and embarrassing for a Cub with big aspirations as well as for Mark Eaton, he won't like his excellent reputation tarnished in this way.
