TVCWFL D1; Buckingham Athletic Ladies 2-2 Caversham AFC Ladies

Buckingham Athletic Ladies – 2
Caversham AFC Ladies – 2

15.05.2019

Buckingham Athletic Ladies rounded off their season with a hard fought two all draw with Caversham on Wednesday evening at Stratford Fields, to finish their first campaign in the top flight of the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League with a very respectable top four finish, a number of teams around them have been unable to complete their fixtures leaving the final league table a little unclear, but at the time of writing they share joint third with Carterton. With a number of first team regulars missing both teams fought out a highly entertaining draw, the second half fiercely competitive with full credit to both sides considering there was very little riding on the game, a number of supporters at the end of the game commenting they had seen one of the best games of the season in this league!

The home side had the first effort of note on five minutes when a clearance to the penalty arc saw Rosie Hubbard head towards the target however visiting custodian Nina Merritt was under it all the way, Kerry Stapleton then had three shadowing her across the area but managed to drill low straight at the keeper, at the opposite end a great four player move saw the away side move the ball higher & higher up the pitch resulting in Freya Jenkins firing narrowly wide. Courtney Crawley was next to warm the hands of Merritt from distance claiming underneath her own crossbar, her goal keeping opponent was then busy denying Jenkins after she’d run thirty yards from midfield and tried to tuck inside the near post, Britten received a pass from Stapleton to hit on the turn but again the shot stopper was not to be beaten.

Nicole Britten scored second Ath goal

The deadlock was eventually broken on thirty-two minutes as a Hubbard corner eluded a couple of touches at close range but running in at the back stick Stapleton managed to divert inside the post, that lead looked good heading towards the break but the visitors drew level with two minutes remaining through Jenkins who fired low across the face from the left of the box, the ball thumping the base of the far upright and rebounding in. An injury then delayed the game but deep into added time the hosts retook the lead after a shot from Crawley came back off the woodwork and Britten was the first to react to turn home. H/T: 2-1

A free kick to Buckingham early after the restart saw Stapleton go for goal from some way out, Merritt parried the initial effort and had to jump up quickly to block the follow up by home captain Jade Copas, a Caversham corner then bounced off the top of the crossbar as it went over & out of play. The game was level once more just past the hour mark when a long punt downfield saw the blue defence switch off allowing Tiffany Newland to pick out Jenkins to the left, her first time drive angled into the near top corner with some power.

Caversham equalise for second time

The away side won a free kick that Jenkins fired straight at Ath keeper Ellen Fenables from just outside the box, Crawley did well out on the touchline skipping past her marker before advancing towards goal but as she drove across the area the ball was just too close to Merritt who gathered and at the opposite end Sophie Ali lifted over the top from the eighteen yard line; Stapleton tried driving at the Caversham backline but with three bodies trailing her again she did well to make any advance however she simply ran out of room and the chance was cleared as the visitor’s made every effort not to concede again.

The midfielder drove a free kick against the wall but as the ball rolled back to her she floated into the far post where Copas headed down to Crawley who lifted over the bar from twelve yards, a Caversham corner was headed wide before a decent one-two saw Jenkins fire into the gloves of Fenables, the last chance of the game fell to the double goal scorer who from inside the area pulled her effort past the back stick. F/T: 2-2

BBFA U13 SCC; Didcot Town 0-4 Finchampstead

Didcot Town – 0
Finchampstead – 4

12.05.2019

Finchampstead lifted the Berks & Bucks Under Thirteen County Cup at Thatcham Town on Sunday, playing some great football at times Didcot couldn’t contain them during the first half, three down at the break they did regroup for the second period and had a goal chalked off for offside, despite having a spell of dominance they were then hit with a sucker punch fourth goal late on.

A strike worthy of any cup final opened the scoring just before the quarter hour mark, a ball knocked out to the left of goal was hit first time and brilliantly bent around the keeper, despite having plenty of the play it took until eight minutes before the half-time whistle for the second to arrive, failure to clear their lines saw a shot take a deflection past the Didcot keeper. It was three just a couple of moments before the break when a goal kick was headed back over the red backline where the scorer took control to wrong foot his marker before absolutely smashing home.

Didcot did get the ball in the back of the net early in the second period however a raised flag denied any celebration, they went on to enjoy a good spell of possession however all that was undone when a superb through ball saw the red backline opened up, one pass to the forward saw his first effort blocked and as the defender went to clear he stuck out a boot to divert home.

Winslow United appoint George Tomlin as manager

Winslow United have moved quickly to replace Paul Alleyne who left the club at the end of the season and have appointed George Tomlin as their new manager.

George Tomlin

George has been the manager of Sunday League side Aylesbury Flooring for the past two seasons, and ended this campaign winning all five competitions that the club entered, the league title wrapped up last weekend completed a truly remarkable season where four cups were lifted beforehand including the infamous FA Sunday Cup success at the end of April which they won at League One Peterborough United by beating Birstall Stamford with three goals in the final thirteen minutes of the game.

Winslow chairman Andy Setterfield said:

After losing Paul and Roni after another successful season, we wanted to appoint someone we felt would be able to build on the success of the last two seasons. We had a lot of interest in the position, but George was the outstanding candidate.

George has had an impressive start to his managerial career having been in charge of the all-conquering Aylesbury Flooring FC, picking up the FA Sunday Cup along the way.  George will be joined on his management team by Julian Robinson who has plenty of experience of the SSMFL and I look forward to working with them both.

I would also again like to place on record mine and the club’s thanks to Paul Alleyne and Roni Joe for their commitment over the last two seasons

Sports Shots caught up with George today to ask his first thoughts on landing the job:

I am very pleased to get the job & excited to get started, it’s going to be a good test. I’m looking forward to working with Andy and the rest of the team, Julian and the players

George obviously knows the previous management team, has there been much communication about the job?

Yes I know them both and of course Garbs (Steve Garbutt), unfortunately I haven’t been able to speak with either Paul or Roni properly yet. I have had phone calls with Steve and other coaches and they have been helpful and given plenty of advice and encouragement

What has the new managers career in football been so far:

I was at Oxford United from the age of nine up to the youth team, on being released I signed for Chesham United reserves then moved to Aylesbury FC. After a couple of seasons I moved to Tring Athletic first team and played under Julian when he was in charge, I also played a season for the reserves before signing for Aylesbury United. I recently stopped playing whilst I was at Tring Corinthians

What does the summer hold now?

It will be nice to have a little break from the football, but myself and Julian will be meeting up and speaking with Andy discussing plans for the season. We will be speaking with old and hopefully new players over the coming weeks up until the first preseason session. Also making sure the pre-season games are all booked in

We asked George what experience he has of the SSMFL and what made him apply for the position?

I was player / assistant manager at Tring Corries a couple seasons back with a very young team, the last time previous to that was playing with Tring Athletic in the Premier Division. With Flooring finishing I wanted to still be involved with coaching, I obviously know some of the players down there already from Aylesbury Flooring and I’ve heard from them and others that it is a very good club and after speaking with Andy and a few other members you can see that Winslow is a club with an ambition to progress

What are the targets for next season?

Of course it’s my first season at this standard and Paul and Roni done a fantastic job here, it would a great achievement if we can come close to what they achieved and of course it would be incredible to go one further. Having Julian as an assistant will be a great help. With his knowledge and experience of the SSMFL and higher, I know we can both help to progress Winslow to the next level

George Tomlin & Alex Kedzierski with 1 of the 5 trophies Flooring won this season

In terms of the squad does George expect to retain the players and add to it?

I’d like to think we can retain the majority if not most. We will be both looking to get players in and build on the squad there to try and achieve getting the club into the prem

Having had so much success in Sunday football this season, how will it differ going to step six Saturday football?

Obviously there is a difference in standard for the majority of the time, my team was built on team spirit and togetherness, however they all play at a good standard on a Saturday which helped. We were successful as a team against good Sunday sides which had good quality Saturday players playing for them. With the FA Cup run and victory, it’s felt like I’ve been running a Saturday side but we’ve just been playing on a Sunday. Some of the boys already play for Winslow, it would be nice to get a couple more, but if they can produce half the effort and quality that they have on a Sunday to a Saturday, we will do very well!

Finally, what message does the new gaffer have to the people of Winslow?

I’m looking forward to working with them and meeting them all. It’s going to be a fun, exciting and hopefully successful season

BBFA U12 SCC; Ascot United 4-0 Didcot Town

Ascot United – 4
Didcot Town – 0

12.05.2019

Ascot United lifted the Berks & Bucks Under Twelve Sunday County Cup at Flackwell Heath with a commanding performance against Didcot Town, two goals either side of the break saw the yellow & blue side impress from start to finish although credit to the Didcot side who never gave up and had chances to get back in the game but found a resolute defence in their way, it took two very late goals at the end to settle the tie once and for all.

United took the lead after just six minutes with a controversial opener, an initial shot was blocked on the edge of the box where a back heel through the Didcot backline saw an attacker in front of goal gratefully accept and swivel to score, despite the protests for offside the goal was allowed to stand. They enjoyed plenty of possession but it took a further twenty minutes before they doubled their lead when a shot was saved but turned in by an alert Ascot attacker, and they went into the break looking very comfortable.

After half time Ascot again had plenty of the ball and looked very lively up front, but it took until six minutes from the end for their third to arrive when a back pass to the Town keeper was too short leaving him stranded as the Ascot player rounded him before rolling home. The fourth arrived shortly after when a clearance from a set piece saw an attempted shot from the angle fly across the goal face and as a defender and striker both swung but missed, there was a spare yellow shirt behind to slot home.

BBFA U12 SCC; Windsor 0-4 Bracknell Town

Windsor U12 – 0
Bracknell Town U12 – 4

12.05.2019

Bracknell Town lifted the Berks & Bucks Under Twelve Saturday County Cup at Flackwell Heath with a commanding win over Windsor, two goals either side of the break were enough to lift the silverware, they were even afforded a late first half penalty miss that produced a great save although in the end it did not really affect the outcome of the contest.

Bracknell took the lead just before the quarter hour mark with a simple chance that was rolled in after an initial shot was saved, five minutes later they doubled their advantage with a back post header from a corner on their left. As the half wore down they then won a penalty after a trip, but the Windsor keeper did brilliantly guessing the right way to block and ensure the scoreline was no worse before the break.

Early in the second half Town had a chance when an initial shot was saved but the ball rolled out invitingly to be hit at the unguarded net however it rebounded back off the post to the Windsor keeper who gathered gratefully. The game was virtually over with twelve minutes left when the third arrived with a great turn on the edge of the box and curl inside the back post, in the final minute a fourth duly arrived following a great run down the left channel and a low drilled shot past the keeper.

BBFA JC; Willen 2-4 Maidenhead Town Reserves

Willen – 2
Maidenhead Town Reserves – 4

11.05.2019

Maidenhead Town Reserves won the Berks & Bucks Junior County Cup on Saturday at Bracknell with a win over Willen in a pulsating cup tie that had everything, twice they took the lead only to be pinned back, two penalties, open goals that were missed, and once the team in blue took the lead for the third time with eighteen minutes remaining their opponents tried as best they could to find another way back, but with the clock ticking down a late corner saw the keeper advance to add numbers in the box but the clearance sent long saw a mis placed pass in the Buckinghamshire sides half twinned with the shot stopper out of his area leave Town with a simple fourth to kill the game off.

Willen had the first chance just two minutes in when Adam Booth was released down the right and sprinted away from his marker, reaching the edge of the area he drove low at the target but Town custodian Alistair Passey got enough of a block to allow a defender to clear, a free kick at the other end taken quickly saw Darryl Wearn in behind and as he put the ball through the advancing keeper Adam Wheeler’s legs towards the empty net, Jack Whitehead was heading towards the six-yard box where he managed to clear. The Milton Keynes side then went close again when Paul Edgeworth flashed across goal and wide of the far upright, their opponents did the same through Jonathon Palmer-Smith ahead of a glancing header from Wearn that bounced past the post.

Maidenhead bench celebrate opening goal

An in swinger from the wing saw Passey go up against Booth whose looping header looked to be going in until Maidenhead skipper Phil Lowe headed over his own bar, a Willen free kick some twenty-yards out saw Lewis Smith go for glory forcing Passey down low at the foot of his post to save, closely followed by a deep cross that Edgeworth headed down and again the keeper did well to get something on it to turn over his frame. Just past the half hour mark a clever pass through the middle saw Clarke Abrams through on goal however a defender on his shoulder managed to get a slight block to divert for a corner, at the opposite end a deft lob over the red backline saw Aaron Keenan try to lift over Wheeler however there was never enough pace to trouble the shot stopper.

The Berkshire side took the lead on thirty-eight minutes through Wearn, set free on goal down the middle he waited until Wheeler advanced before absolutely smashing home, moments after going behind Willen conceded possession in their own half allowing Wearn down the right where his low drive was straight at Wheeler, a throw along the eighteen yard line saw a Cameron Netherwood-Meek swivel to dink over everyone but land on top of the netting, from the restart Booth was released down the flank and his shot from distance saw a flying save from Passey diving away to his left, another ball dinked over the blue defence saw Booth denied again by an outstretched boot, although it just wouldn’t come down quick enough for him to connect properly. H/T: 0-1

An early chance of an equaliser was spurned when a pass laid back to Lewis Hopkinson was lifted over the top, but just four minutes in his side were awarded a penalty when Booth was fouled inside the area and Smith almost broke the net with the power despatching it past Passey. Moments after the equaliser the ball was in the back of the net again however Booth was clearly offside & then on the hour mark Town regained their lead following an attack that was cleared in the box, as it went out for a throw for which most of the players on the pitch prepared for the assistant on the far side was noticed to be flagging furiously and once the referee went over to consult he blew his whistle and pointed to the spot, much to the disgust of those in red.

Lewis Smith levels from the spot

After the protests died down Bell despatched the spot kick to restore the Maidenhead lead, just four minutes later they missed a chance of going further ahead when sloppy defending saw Willen give the ball to Wearn with Wheeler out of his box trying to help his defence he could only pull his shot from twenty yards wide of the nearest upright, parity was restored mid-way through the half when a corner curled towards the near stick saw Jason Pinnock rise to it first to knock inside the post. Jed Chapman almost gave his side the lead for the first time in the contest when he collected on the edge of the area, sensing a challenge coming in he turned the defender before dragging wide, Booth was next to try getting down the right channel but could only fire into the side netting.

Maidenhead retook the lead on seventy-two minutes when a free kick out on the wing almost on the half-way line was floated in and as a mass of bodies all challenged it was headed back across goal to Scott Cooper who rolled into the empty net. Willen from there simply couldn’t find a third leveller, a late chance for Booth saw him sent down the middle of the pitch but Passey advanced to meet the striker and got enough of a block to loop the ball over the top for a corner, the collision resulting in the front man having to go off injured, the set piece was cleared long which the red defence tried one too many passes only to give it to Wearn who fed Adrian Manez to go round the retreating Wheeler and seal the game. F/T: 2-4

Buckingham Athletic Ladies need your support tonight!

Tonight see’s the last game of the season for Buckingham Athletic Ladies as they host Caversham AFC Ladies at Stratford Fields with a 7.45pm kick-off, third in the table versus sixth promises to be a cracker!

Ath lost at Caversham back in November but beat them in cup game in January

A win would lift Carmen Robinson’s squad up into second place in the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League Division One table, but they won’t know if they stay there until the week-end when those below them play their final round of matches. However, in the reverse fixture last November their opponents put four past the Swans without reply, so this will be no easy game.

Support your local ladies’ team, it’s free entry and your support could help the team to clinch that vital three points they need as they seek that runners-up place in the first season in the top division.

The sun is out, the sky is blue, get down the Ath, & join us too

See you there………..

BBFA U14 CC; Ascot United 3-3 Widmer End (2-1 on pens)

Ascot United U14 – 3
Widmer End U14 – 3

(Ascot win 2-1 on penalties)

11.05.2019

Ascot lifted the Berks & Bucks Under Fourteen County Cup on Saturday at Bracknell Town in a thrilling game that had it all, an early two goal lead left those in the yellow & blue looking comfortable but their opposition came out after the half-time break a different side and were level within fifteen minutes, they then scored what they thought was a late winner however they themselves were then pinned back to take to the game into a shootout, the woodwork and some great saves finally seeing the United side prevail two-one.

Ascot took the lead on nine minutes from the penalty spot after a foul in the box, within a minute that lead was doubled with an exquisite chip over the keeper from twenty yards & their lead looked promising at the break. Widmer came out for the second period all guns blazing and after hitting the bar & seeing the Ascot keeper save on his six-yard line they pulled a goal back just two minutes in after a goal mouth melee eventually saw the ball slotted home at the back post. A thumping header from a corner levelled the game with twenty-two minutes left, the rest of the half saw both sides go close but in added time Widmer scored from a corner which they thought was enough to clinch the game, however a free kick to their opponents saw confusion in the box and a late late leveller to take the game into penalties.

Widmer scored the first spot kick, United levelled before the second for the team in blue was saved, before Ascot could celebrate their next attempt came back off the post but then their opponent’s next spot kick was wide. Ascot took the lead & then watched as their keeper made a magnificent save, the next United effort missed but the fifth Widmer penalty was saved leaving the United keeper swamped by his ecstatic team mates.
