Mursley United 3-2 Old Bradwell United

Mursley United – 3

Old Bradwell United – 2

Mursley United beat Old Bradwell United on a glorious sunny Tuesday evening to climb up to second in the South Midlands Division Two table. Despite going behind early on they weathered the Bradwell storm and equalised before the break; a better start to the second period saw them take the lead and despite their visitors pinning them back found a winner fourteen minutes from time to leap frog their guests and after four games are one of only three times still unbeaten in the league.

Alex Feaver put Bradwell ahead in the second minute, a deep cross from the right was knocked back across goal by Aaron Bhasin and in the middle Feaver couldn’t miss from close range. The home side had their first effort on eight minutes when Adam Bone thumped a free kick straight into Bradwell keeper Liam Jahn’s gloves.

Opposite keeper Sam Jay then had to save bravely at the feet of Ross Butler as he sprung the Mursley offside trap, but there was nothing he could when Feaver tried his luck from twenty yards on fifteen minutes, but to his luck the ball crashed back off the crossbar and was eventually cleared.

Mursley then equalised on twenty-seven minutes, a ball down the right wing allowed Lewis Delahaye to get away from his marker, knock the ball past the advancing Jahn and slot into the empty net.

Delahaye scored twice

A free kick to the home side then saw a knock back across goal and Bone stuck out a boot and almost divert the ball home past the wrong footed Jahn, but the ball rolled agonisingly wide.

Feaver fired over from twenty-five yards, a Mursley free kick was then headed straight at Jahn by Ellis Spence, and in the final minute of the half a Bradwell counter attack saw Butler set free down their right before he crossed to Ben Green who off balance screwed his effort wide. H/T: 1-1

First chance of the second half saw Bhasin connect well with a cross field pass but he could only steer wide, before a Mursley corner was headed over by Spence. The home side enjoyed some lengths of possession and whilst several half chances were blocked in the box, Bone left footed high over the bar.

Just before the hour mark Delahaye scored his, and his sides second of the game, showing some strength inside the Bradwell area he went shoulder to shoulder with a marker but created enough space to fire into the bottom corner.

Another Mursley corner was then headed wide by Spence despite having two defenders in close attendance, before a slip in the home back line allowed Feaver in behind and his attempted lob over Jay saw the keeper back pedal before having to throw himself at the ball to fingertip around his post for a corner.

Old Bradwell got themselves level on seventy two minutes, a ball into the box saw defender and keeper both miss the cross and waiting in front of the empty net Green fired home.

Ben Green levels

Just as the visitors thought they’d got themselves back in the game, four minutes later they fell behind again, from far out on the right wing Oz Cribb floated a diagonal ball over to the back post where Santino Ciliberti got a shot away that eluded Jahn as he came out and somehow the ball rolled in.

Delahaye looking for his treble dribbled past three defenders before blazing over, and moments before the end Feaver looked to be in behind the Mursley defence but a superb recovery from Adam Moore saw him get in a vital block and the danger was gone. F/T: 3-2

Attendance: 34

Saturday see’s us travel to Aston Clinton for the first meeting of the season. They have had a good season and are looking for a top three finish.

Despite a week off last Saturday, due to the previous days Cheltenham trip. We are hoping to continue the good form of our last outing against Gallacticos, where we played well in a 4-1 win.

We are aware we face a tough task on Saturday and whilst we continue to have some absences we go with a strong squad.

Our aim is to finish as high up the league as possible, to do that we need to put a run of results together. We have some tough games coming up so a positive result on Saturday is a necessity.

ART,QF: Old Bradwell depart cup on penalties

Old Bradwell United were knocked out of the Anagram Records Trophy, quarter-final in dramatic circumstances to British Airways on Saturday.

David Keene’s side came from behind three times during both normal and extra time before finally departing on penalties.

The home side will be disappointed to have conceded a soft opening goal before Ross Butler’s glancing header put them back on level terms on 38 minutes.

The visitors took the lead again and appeared to be heading into the semi-final, even missing a penalty, before United substitute Peter Bentley smashed in a 92nd minute equaliser, much to the delight of the home followers.

Old Bradwell United celebrate Peter Bentley’s 92nd minute equaliser versus British Airways on Saturday 25th February 2017.

Peter Maxey’s extra time goal ensured at 3-3 the game went to penalties.

United goalkeeper Dan Willett saved well to give his side the advantage from the opening penalty but they were unable to press this home as they eventually lost 3-2 on spot kicks.

ART, QF: British Airways set to land as Old Bradwell return to Abbey Road

Old Bradwell United manager David Keene has spoken as his side look ahead to returning to their own ground for their Anagram Records Trophy, quarter-final on Saturday afternoon.

David Keene

Keene told Sports Shots this lunchtime;

Saturday (Weather permitting) sees us play our first true Home game of the season, as we are back at Abbey Road for the first time this season in an Anagram Trophy Quarter Final tie against British Airways.

Whilst it’s nice to be back at Abbey Road we have started to find a little form and the last 3 results have been excellent. After the 3-0 defeat to Totternhoe, in what was a closer game than the score suggested, we have beat Amersham, Mursley and most recently New Bradwell.

Whilst all wins are pleasing the win last Saturday against Mursley was excellent in that they have beaten us twice this season so was pleasing to get the win. Tuesday night’s game against New Bradwell was a very good team performance against a very good team.

That win had everything, New Bradwell were in control for the first 25 minutes and we had to dig in a little, we then got a foothold in the game and scored a very good goal. The second half we dominated for long spells and should have probably added to the 1-0 scoreline but was pleasing to get the win and the clean sheet. The work rate of the players was exceptional and is their benchmark for the remainder of this season. Also it was nice that selection decisions the management took paid off, which isn’t always the case. In addition the number of supporters who made the short journey were excellent.

Today’s game puts us up against a team we haven’t played before and don’t know a great deal about. British Airways are well placed in the Middlesex County league and have been in great form in this competition. Seeing off SSMFL Division 1 team Hatfield in the last round with ease.

I’m sure Saturday will be a very tough game as you would expect in a quarter-final of any competition but we are hopeful to continue our recent collective and individual good form. Hoping the return to Abbey Road will also work in our favour.

Squad for Saturday’s game (from): Alex Feaver, Colm Rooney, Dan Willett, Duane Bhasin, Joel Rodwell Bullock, Kieran Perkins, Niall Williams, Nick Bardell, Pete Bentley, Pete Maddigan, Peter Maxey, Ross Butler, Shaun Ennis, Tommy Cooke, Zac Ferris.
