SSMFL,D2: Old Bradwell edge past Unite MK in league local derby

Old Bradwell United edged past Unite MK 3-2 in a Spartan South Midlands League, Division 2 local derby at Manor Fields on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors started very positively and took the lead when Aaron Bhasin’s cross-cum-shot went in after quarter of an hour.

Unite MK came back into the game and dominated the rest of the first half but were unable to equalise.

In the second period Unite MK finally levelled on 58 minutes after Luke Little took advantage of hesitation in the home defence to score.

Twelve minutes from time Ben Green got himself in front of the keeper from Maxey’s ball and rolled into an empty net as the visitors retook the lead.

David Keene’s side made it three as a throw in went to Bentley, who produced a great touch, and Darryl Smith smashed the ball home.

Little pulled a goal back late on but it was Old Bradwell who held on and secured the victory.

After a goalless first half, Billy Batten put Old Bradwell United Development ahead before Lewis Baker made it two. Toby Cribb wrapped up the scoring with a third.

SSMFL,D2: INTERVIEW Unite Mk’s secretary Christine Greenwood – a gem in Milton Keynes football

Although Unite MK are without a game this weekend, we spoke to their club secretary Christine Greenwood, a gem of football in Milton Keynes.

Christine Greenwood

Christine is a driving force behind Unite MK and has been for some time.

I have been involved with the club stretching for over 50 years firstly with my Dad, Bob Swann, in the 60s/70s. He was match secretary when he died at an away game in 1986, then since 2004 when my two eldest sons and myself resurrected Wolverton Town FC, starting off in the MK Sunday League with players from Bradwell Common and Wolverton, mostly friends of my three sons. We played at The Park for one season before it was sold for redevelopment, then the Wolverton Council helped us get into The Radcliffe School where we played until 2011, joining the North Bucks League in 2005 in addition to the Sunday side and both teams rose through the divisions.

In Sports Shots times Unite MK has faced some very difficult times.

In 2011 we secured the lease on the old Rugby Club in Greenleys and joined the South Midlands League in 2012. Unfortunately this did not work out and the Football Club split with the social side in 2014 and it went downhill from there. In January 2016 we were told to vacate the ground and had to secure three new locations to see the season out. This was probably the most stressful season so far as I was running four teams practically by myself. I seriously considered giving it all up and had several offers to move clubs. When I was asked to help run a new team out of Manor Fields with new committee members coming in I felt that was the right decision and haven’t regretted it. I am still involved with the Wolverton Town Veterans team who split from the main club in 2016.

With people like Christine Greenwood and the group of volunteers working hard behind the scenes their determination has seen them not just survive but improve.

We began Unite MK in June 2016, the name chosen as it showed that the players come from all over Milton Keynes with the logo representing a compass. After all how can you be called Wolverton Town and play in Fenny Stratford! The team, and they are a TEAM not individuals, play for each other and this has resulted in the steady rise of the team in the league. The team is in a good position at the moment with games in hand. Division 2 is always competitive and we have had some good battles this season, especially in the cup games where we have not been overshadowed by higher teams.

So what is the future for Unite MK? Christine is keen that the club keeps improving.

Short-term we are aiming for promotion to Division 1 and being in a position to enter the FA Vase next season. Long term we are looking for a steady, slow rise through the divisions to get to the next levels. As always we are still looking for volunteers to help run the club, especially on match days, plus running a club is not cheap, sponsorship is always hard to find and we thank our current sponsors for their help this season. Any help with sponsorship will always be welcomed.

SSMFL,D2: Old Bradwell end Unite MK’s outstanding run with league victory

Old Bradwell United ended Unite MK’s outstanding run of eight straight league wins with victory at Abbey Road on Saturday.
In his 200th game in charge of Old Bradwell David Keene saw his side record a 5-2 victory.

David Keene

Unite MK could have taken an early lead, but Little clean through was foiled by Jahn saving to his left. Despite it being quite end-to-end, clear chances were proving difficult, although the momentum of the game changed within two minutes.
In the 25th minute, Ben Green found himself with the ball on the corner of the Unite MK area. There didn’t look to be much danger for Unite MK, but Green showing great skill proceeded to ghost past 3 players and smash the ball into the top right of goal.
Then almost immediately after, a ball over the top wasn’t dealt with by Essilfie. The visiting left back was then robbed by Butler who was then fouled. The Referee deeming he was pulled back by Essilfie, who was subsequently sent off for denying a goal scoring opportunity.
With Unite having to re-organise Old Bradwell netted again through Green again, who found himself out left, cut in taking on 2 players. His cross created a scramble and the ball fell to Green who toe punted it in to the goal.
To Unite MK’s credit they fought back and started to cause Old Bradwell some problems. They moved the ball forward quickly using the pace of Tomsik and Little to good effect.
A Unite MK corner from the right was not cleared and it fell to Jakub Tomsik who dispatched a fine half volley past Jahn in goal.

Half Time 2-1

Old Bradwell enjoy a good spell of pressure in the opening of the second half  but it was Unite MK who then nearly scored, with Brahm through on goal his shot was saved by Jahn coming out of his goal well.

It was 69th minute before the game was secured. Again another scramble in the Unite area looked like it would come to nothing, until the ball fell to Tommy Cooke who calmly finished in to the bottom right corner.

Tommy Cooke – Old Bradwell United

A four-minute spell 10 minutes later finished any hope of Unite MK coming back.

First a free-kick from Maxey out wide, was met by Dan Smith who got in front of the keeper to head in then in the 82nd minute, Green completed a well-deserved hat-trick; A quick break resulted in Feaver shooting, with the ball looking to go in it was brilliantly cleared by the defender with a diving header. Fortunately for the home side it fell to Green who finished from close range to score his 12th of the season.

Luke Little

There was still time for Unite to score again though with the referee awarding a penalty, which Little dispatched.

Full Time 5-2

Old Bradwell United: Liam Jahn, Peter Maxey, Scott Parker, Peter Bentley (Alex Feaver), Aaron Bhasin (Barry Rooney), Aidan Rooney, Carl Bryce, Joel Rodwell-Bullock, Ross Butler (Tommy Cooke), Ben Green, Daniel Smith.
Unite MK: Aaron Halai, Ridge Essilfie, Saajan Sehajpal, Craig Daubney, Paul Blackwell, Myles Braham (Anthony Kwarteng), Gianni Ricci, Jamie Parker (Josh Ambrose), Jakub Tomsik (Cole Rawson), Karl Ainsley, Luke Little.



SSMFL,D2: Ainsley praises Unite MK as they go for ninth straight league win in local derby

Karl Ainsley has praised the in-form Unite MK as they head into a local derby at Old Bradwell United on Saturday afternoon.

Karl Ainsley

After suffering defeats in three of their opening four games, Mark Robinson’s side have produced an exception unbeaten run. Since their last defeat back on 16th August Unite MK has won eight games on the bounce to go seventh with games in hand on the teams above the.

Ainsley spoke to Sports Shots about all things Unite MK this week.

What do you feel has been the key factors in this fantastic run in the league run?

I feel like the key factors are down to the players and the management team.

The players this season have really stepped their games up and they are really pushing each other to their limits in training and on the field. We have got a few new players in and they have made a real impact on the team!

The end of the day we all just want to play football and enjoy ourselves and that is showing in our results.

With the management team, Mark has really given the lads confidence on the pitch,

Currently seventh, what is the main aims for the rest of the season?

Seventh is ok for now, our aim is to keep going and getting the right results!

We ended last season on 45 points and finishing 12th, which wasn’t a great season with everything that went on, but we look back on that and we all want improvements and that’s happening! So, it’s heading in the right way!

You’ve been at the club a while, the improvements are happening, what is the mood like?

Yes I have been here a while, and I’m looking to stay for a little longer as the club has the facilities and the team to go further!

With the players we have they are clearly making their mark on this league and others, ss a few other clubs have shown interested in 90% of the team, but that’s down to the players showing their ability on the pitch!

The mood is ok now as we had a tough start to the season but found our feet quickly after losing a few games, so we can only look forward!

The last thing from me, I just want to thank all involved with Unite MK. It’s been tough but with the support of our committee, our sponsors and the players, they have made this season what it is so far! So credit goes to them.

SSMFL,D2: A Little Luke at Unite MK’s goalscoring sensation ahead of Old Bradwell derby

Unite MK’s Luke Little has spoken to Sports Shots as his side prepare to welcome Old Bradwell United in a Spartan South Midlands League, division 2 local derby tomorrow (Saturday).

Luke Little

The Unite MK man has been finding the net with outstanding regularity and currently has a goal-a-game from his 18 appearances.

Little told Sports Shots;

Our season is going well so far, we’ve had a decent couple of cup runs and been unlucky not to progress against teams from one or two divisions above. We are currently sixth, but only seven points behind Totternhoe in 2nd with 3 games in hand, so it will be nice to keep the pressure on and push Park View as much as possible. I’m on 18 goals in 18 games so pretty happy with that ratio.

Little’s scoring feats is down to a combination of contentment and a change in his work life.

There is no particular reason, just got a good bunch of lads around me, really enjoying my football this year and hopefully that’s showing on the pitch. I used to work Saturday mornings, but I’ve recently got a new job that’s Monday to Friday, so I keep saying to the lads now I’ve got extra energy from not grafting away all morning at work before football!

Going forward’s Little explained the mood in the Unite MK camp going into the second half of the season.

The gaffer’s just said he wants us to continue how we are, just keep getting points on the board and pushing towards the right end of the table. We aren’t getting carried away, we just want to keep the pressure on the teams above us and see what happens!

On a personal level I just want to keep scoring goals and helping the team push on, the gaffer has set me a target, in terms of goals, by the end of the season so I’m just plugging away to get close to that.

In closing, Little said.

I just want to add a thank you for asking me to do this, I really enjoy reading through your tweets and it keeps me and the boys updated with everything that’s going on football-wise.
