FAV; White Ensign 4-1 Buckingham Athletic

White Ensign – 4
Buckingham Athletic – 1

13.10.2019

Buckingham Athletic were knocked out of the FA Vase by an Essex based side for the second consecutive season on Sunday, White Ensign of the Eastern Counties League Division One South progressing with two goals either side of the break although had the away side taken their chances when they came along a slightly different game may have been played out. Chances at either end were spurned in the opening stages but it was the hosts that scored twice inside six minutes to enjoy their half time refreshments, it was three soon after the restart but Ath pulled a goal back fairly quickly and then had two chances that could have changed the course of the game, however then a freak own goal sealed the game for the home side who go into the second round for the first time in their history.

Athletic had two early chances which saw Jacob Williamson fire over the top & a Jeremiah Adams lob land on top of the netting, but after a fairly even opening half hour the hosts took the lead when a cross from James Ainslie was headed against Luke Skinner allowing him the opportunity to smash home off the underside of the crossbar. That lead was then doubled just six minutes later when an initial shot hit a defender and fell nicely for Andy George to pounce and stab home.

Jeremiah Adams pulls a goal back for Athletic

Any hopes of a second half comeback were dashed just ninety seconds after the restart when a goal kick to the away side was sent straight back into their half and a simple ball across the eighteen yard box found player manager Brett Munyard unmarked who simply couldn’t miss. But just two minutes later the visitor’s pulled a goal back when a Kevin Owusu free kick into the box was flicked on by Jack Menday and quickest to pounce was Adams who poked home.

Shortly after the goal Adams went close again when from the acutest of angles his fierce drive bounced up and over the frame of the goal, a long clearance with a flick on in midfield then saw Chris Parr released down the right and from the corner of the eighteen yard box he fizzed across goal and inches wide of the far post. The game was finally sealed on the hour mark when a harmless looking cross from the Ensign left was met by a firm header in front of goal by Ath centre half Robert Tapp which planted the ball firmly into Josh McAdoo’s bottom right hand corner.

FAV; Brackley Town Saints 2-3 West Bridgford (aet)

Brackley Town Saints – 2
West Bridgford – 3

(after extra time, 2-2 at 90 mins)

12.10.2019

Brackley Town Saints were knocked out of the FA Vase on Saturday by West Bridgford of the East Midlands Counties League, a shock defeat to the side from a level below & considering a very early lead seemed set to provide the hosts with a comfortable afternoon. Saints were guilty of missing several guilt edged chances, the legs of Bridgford keeper James Fogg saved his side on more than one occasion during a classic example of a non-league cup tie, Ryan Knight put his side ahead and from there they dominated the early stages, but the visitor’s defended for their lives and had the better of the later stages of the first period, after the break they took the lead and looked set to progress until a last minute equaliser took the game into extra time, but still not to be outdone Jack Oldham scored the winner to send his side into delirium.

Saints took the lead in the fourth minute when Knight was fed on the edge of the box from where he advanced a couple of yards before placing into the bottom corner, chances came & went for the hosts as they looked for a second but the longer the half wore on the more Bridgford came into the game, and just before the half hour mark Tim Hopkinson gave the hosts a warning when his dipping shot from eighteen yards crashed off the crossbar and over the top.

It took the visitor’s just six minutes after the interval to draw level, from the right the ball was fed inside to Jordan Wheatley and he was allowed time to turn before flashing his shot across Crowther and inside the far post. The goal lifted the away side and they piled on the pressure which was rewarded with half an hour left when a cross eluded the outstretched arm of the Saints keeper and Ryan Whitehurst was able to collect, avoid a lunge from Crowther and then lift into the roof of the net from the angle.

Olly Goddard scores in final minute

With ten minutes to go a ball aimed for Ryan Knight took a deflection feeding James Hammond inside the box however from twelve yards he lifted over the top, but in the final minute a free kick in their own half saw Crowther go long and as Goddard got to the ball ahead of the Bridgford keeper he managed to flick his header home to take the game into thirty extra minutes.

An early chance in extra time again saw Fogg deny Hammond from close range using his legs to block, closely followed by a hatrick of shots from Brackley that had the Bridgford keeper and defenders throwing themselves in front of the ball to block to deny what looked an inevitable goal, just before the break Wheatley saw a shot from twenty yards bounce off the underside of the bar, down into the six-yard box allowing a red defender to clear.

The eventually winner came four minutes into the second half of extra time, substitute Oldham found space inside the area to smash past Crowther into the far top corner, as much as Saints huffed & puffed they just could not find the equaliser they needed for a replay. F/T: 2-3

Attendance: 127

Buildbase FA Vase 1R: MK Robins flying after causing Vase upset

MK Robins produced an excellent display as they caused a Buildbase FA Vase upset.

Alex Filip

Terry Shrieves saw his side return from step 5 Essex Senior League, Premier Division outfit Hadley with a 2-0 victory.

Alex Filip’s defected effort gave the Robins a first half lead at the break.

Owusu Kyeremateng produced a stunning double save to keep the visiting Robins ahead minutes into the second period.

With six minutes remaining, George Shrieves lobbed the goalkeeper to give his side a two-goal advantage.

George Shrieves

Within a minute Shrieves was played in again and the home side’s central defender brought him down. He was subsequently sent off for being the last man.

Two minutes later, another Hadley player picked up a second yellow and the home side were reduced to nine players.

The final whistle blew to see the Robins go into the second round draw.

Robert Tapp

We asked Robert:

 

How was your summer, do you miss football when it finishes or is it nice to just get away from it and relax?

It’s nice to get away these days, I don’t really miss it now I’m old. I do the things I don’t get time to do when the football season is on

Re-signed on for Athletic this summer, what influenced your choice and were there any other clubs that wanted you?

I re-signed because we have a good group of lads and management here, it’s also a nice club with good facilities, and the players get well looked after

How do you feel your early season games have gone for you personally so far?

Personally I think I’ve done ok, it has been a struggle so far this season with no settled team with so many people away or injured in the early part of the season, it’s not gone too well

What are the expectations and/or targets for the season for you yourself, and the squad as a whole?

I’d personally like to win a cup and get promoted, if we go on a good run which we are capable of we can bring ourselves back into promotion contention. I think getting top four is the main aim for the team this year

Who has been your biggest influence in football?

Steven Gerrard. Watching and admiring him play was always good

How much belief is there in the squad that you can have a successful season, and which players will be key for you to achieve this?

There is still a belief that we can do well, we know we have a good squad but we all need to perform better to get to where we want to be, keeping people like Robbie Carter fit and Josh (McAdoo) still performing well in goal will really help us to get there

Away at White Ensign in FA Vase action this week, do you know anything about them & what are you expecting from them?

I don’t really know anything about them to be honest. Whatever, it will be a tough game which we’re looking forward to

Who is the biggest moaner in the dressing room?

This is tough, both the Carter brothers love a moan on the pitch and I think Cruiser is a good moaner too

Robbie Carter

What is your typical pre-match routine before you get to the ground?

I don’t really have a routine, I’m usually just rushing around to get ready as I go to work on Saturday morning’s for a few hours then it’s a quick shower, change and off to football

In your current squad, who is the most under rated player in your opinion?

Kevin (Owusu), he’s a quality player who works hard for the team and on his day can be unplayable

Who has the worst dress sense at the club?

I’d say Griff the manager, he does wear some bad clothes, especially some of his shoes

When you leave the football pitch on a Saturday, what is the first result you look for elsewhere, and why?

I check the Liverpool score first and then usually check my old team Newport Pagnell to see how they have got on

Who is the last person you would let choose the music in the dressing room (or car) on matchday, and why?

There’s too many to choose from, some of the music these days is shocking

What’s the one game this season you most want to win and why?

The MK Robins game. Loads of my old teammates play for them now so it would be nice to win that one

Finally, after you’ve scored a hatrick on Saturday, what can supporters buy you in the bar afterwards?

A pint of Stella would be lovely

Sports Shots would like to thank Robert for his time this week

We asked Ollie:

 

How was your summer, do you miss football when it finishes or is it nice to just get away from it and relax?

My summer was really nice; I spent some time away from football so switched off for the majority but had a few things lined up for the start of the season, so it was always in the back of my mind

Re-signed on for The Saints this summer, what influenced your choice and were there any other clubs that wanted you?

Yes, I re-signed for the Saints after an unsuccessful trial with the first team at Brackley, it gave me some good feedback and purpose to try help push to get promotion this year. I did have a few other clubs come in for me, but it made sense to re-sign in my current circumstances

How do you feel your early season games have gone for you personally so far?

Personally, it’s been a bit frustrating, as I think in the majority of our games we have been the better side, but have either given it away or just not produced the performance we know we are capable of

What are the expectations and/or targets for the season for you yourself, and the squad as a whole?

I expected a positive start to the season with a huge emphasis on winning the league, we still have this in our mind set and the squad, as a whole, are on the same page when it comes to expectations

Who has been your biggest influence in football?

My dad has always been my biggest influence; he has always pushed me to excel myself and given me good guidance on the decisions I have made

How much belief is there in the squad that you can have a successful season, and which players will be key for you to achieve this?

I think there’s a lot of belief within the group that we can achieve this year, the start we have had has focused us to learn, and pushed us into positions we haven’t been in before, we have several key players within the squad but when Lewis Baldwin and James Watts return it will give us that boost we need as both are exceptionally talented players

Home this week to West Bridgford in the FA Vase this week, do you know anything about them & what are you expecting from them?

Nice home tie against a side I don’t really know anything about, they will obviously come to win, so we have to be at it to give ourselves a good chance at progressing

Who is the biggest moaner in the dressing room?

The Hammond brothers (James & Matt) are always good for a moan!

What is your typical pre-match routine before you get to the ground?

When we play at home, I do love a coffee before the game when I get to the ground, away from home I don’t really have a routine

In your current squad, who is the most under rated player in your opinion?

Most under rated I would say is Lewis Gabbidon; he has come into the squad this season and has shown some real quality performances

Harry Brock

Who has the worst dress sense at the club?

Worst dress sense is Harry Brock; he has some proper rascal gear. Definitely a Timberland boot kicking about on a night out

When you leave the football pitch on a Saturday, what is the first result you look for elsewhere, and why?

I rarely look at other results after games, out of the teams within the league I guess Westfield as they are flying at the moment

Who is the last person you would let choose the music in the dressing room (or car) on matchday, and why?

The gaffer Chris, he turns up with his Mrs I-Pod and has some questionable disco tracks on there!

What’s the one game this season you most want to win and why?

Easington on Boxing Day, I think as it’s our local rivals and is always a nice game over the festive period. However, a win on Saturday in the Vase would also be great!

Finally, after you’ve scored on Saturday, what can supporters buy you in the bar afterwards?

Once I have scored on Saturday, I will have a pint of Strongbow dark fruit please!

We asked James:

 

How was your summer, do you miss football when it finishes or is it nice to just get away from it and relax?

My summer was great thank you, we went to visit family in Jersey. It was good to have a break but as soon as pre-season rolls around, you’re itching to get back involved again

Re-signed on for Aylesbury this summer, what influenced your choice and were there any other clubs that wanted you?

I played in the Danny Martone charity game over the summer at Aylesbury and there was a real buzz about the club, it was great to see so many familiar faces. After speaking to Paul and hearing his plans, it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of again

How do you feel your early season games have gone for you personally so far?

I think I’ve been playing okay. I’m enjoying my football at the moment which is the most important thing. It’s a good group of lads that Paul has put together

What are the expectations and/or targets for the season for you yourself, and the squad as a whole?

We’re going through a bit of a rebuilding phase at the moment, the future is looking really bright at the club. We’re not getting carried away though, we’re just taking each game as it comes

Who has been your biggest influence in football?

I used to love watching my dad play on a Saturday afternoon. He played centre half and my uncle played in goal

How much belief is there in the squad that you can have a successful season, and which players will be key for you to achieve this?

It’s a very positive changing room and we’ve got a good mix of youth and experience. Alfi Touceda in particular, has had a cracking start to the season

Away at Stansted this week in FA Vase action, do you know anything about them & what are you expecting from them?

I don’t know much about them to be honest, I haven’t played there before so it’ll be good to see a new ground. We’re well aware that anyone can beat anyone in competitions like this, hopefully we can work harder on the day and get the result we want

Paul Toms

Who is the biggest moaner in the dressing room?

That’s easy, Paul Toms!

In your current squad, who is the most under rated player in your opinion?

Keith Mupfururirwa has been brilliant so far this year. Roy Byron is an unsung hero as well

Who has the worst dress sense at the club?

Pete Forssling!

When you leave the football pitch on a Saturday, what is the first result you look for elsewhere, and why?

Whoever I’ve captained that week for fantasy football!

Who is the last person you would let choose the music in the dressing room (or car) on matchday, and why?

Macca’s music was on point on Monday night away at Reading. If anyone else tries to connect their phone then there’s going to be words!

What’s the one game this season you most want to win and why?

I’m not sure there is one to be honest! I want to win every weekend!

Finally, after you’ve saved a hatrick of penalties on Saturday, what can supporters buy you in the bar afterwards?

A lottery ticket! It’d clearly be my lucky day!

14.09.2019

Aylesbury Vale Dynamos progressed through to the first round proper of the FA Vase with victory on Saturday over Rugby Borough at Haywood Way, dominating the early exchanges the hosts took a fifth minute lead and missed a host of chances to extend their advantage, but Rugby dug in and hit the woodwork twice before levelling thirteen minutes before the break. Any hopes on building on their success were soon dashed as Aylesbury regained their lead before the interval, the second half saw the visitors trying to break down a resolute yellow & blue backline without much real success, late substitutions then sealed the game for Paul Bonham’s men as Ryan Tappin tormented down the left and his cross in added time saw Abu Khan eventually kill the tie off, Dynamo’s await Mondays draw to see who they now face in the first round to be played over the weekend of October the twelfth.

The home side took the lead when a free kick inside their own half saw keeper James Weatherill knock a long downfield pass to Harry Scott out on the right wing, he got behind his marker to cross where Keith Mupfururirwa saw an initial shot blocked but the rebound fell kindly for him to knock home. Aylesbury saw plenty of possession in the opening stages but were given a warning on twenty-four minutes when a Sam Beasley header from a corner bounced down off the crossbar and away to safety, and just seconds after Tommy Rawlings angled a low drive across Weatherill only to watch as the ball thumped back off the base of the post and away. Despite the warnings parity was restored just past the half hour mark as Rugby stole possession in their hosts half and fed Rawlings who had time to compose himself before firing into the top corner despite the fingertips of the keeper. Aylesbury restored their lead just five minutes later when their guests surrendered possession in their own half and a long range effort from Alfi Touceda crashed back of the crossbar but Mupfururirwa was on hand to sweep home.

Abu Khan seals the game late on

The second period never really matched the highs of the first, Rugby had much more of the play but never really tested Weatherill or the home defence, with fifteen minutes remaining a long ball into the Vale box saw centre half Jayvon Case-Jarrett slice his clearance and as it appeared to be looping over Weatherill it spiralled away from the post in a heart-stopping moment for the home faithful. The introduction of Ryan Tappin to the left wing rejuvenated the home side and after a couple of close misses he chase down what looked a lost cause in added time to keep the ball alive, his cross saw a couple of blocked shots that eventually fell to teenager Abu Khan just inside the area and he drilled into the bottom corner to seal the tie. Before the game could restart Rugby keeper Bobby Biddle was shown a straight red card for which was later confirmed as a spitting incident. F/T: 3-1
