Two of our local sides were featured in this week’s edition of BBC 3Counties non-league show.

The withdrawal of Grendon Rangers from the Spartan South Midlands League Division Two saw chairman Paul Jackson on the show to explain the reasons behind their decision, and to look to the future.

Whilst in the FA Vase Winslow United cruised past Rushden & Higham United on Saturday to earn the performance of the week award on Ollie Bayliss’s show, with manager George Tomlin talking all things Ploughmen on air.

SSMFL D1; Stotfold 3-0 Winslow United

STOTFOLD 3—0 WINSLOW UNITED

It was certainly a game of two halves at Roker Park on a boiling hot Bank Holiday Monday as Stotfold’s organisation and obduracy came to the fore in a tough encounter played out in front of a good sized crowd.

Ty Deacon had an early chance for United

Roker Park is an impressive set up clearly geared for Step 5 football and on this evidence the club may well have a team to match. Well marshalled in defence and uncompromising in midfield they will almost certainly be one of the front runners in Division 1 this season. That said, Winslow shaded the first half and looked to be on course for a speedy recovery following Saturday’s heavy loss at New Salamis.

United were in the ascendancy in the opening 25 minutes with Ty Deacon causing the Stotfold defence problems; his goal bound header from Shayne Almond’s cross was blocked by a defender and he was denied by a fine save from ’keeper Gooch when put through one on one by Mitchell Collins, it wasn’t all one way though as Stotfold’s Robertson rattled the frame of the goal after being teed up by Ngwala. Daniel Parsons was next to threaten the hosts’ goal when he side footed Paul Brown’s cut back the wrong side of the post, the home side seemed to be awoken to the threat posed by Winslow and adjusted to a more confrontational style with Robertson and Forsythe, in particular, getting in the United players’ faces with their antics resulting in the former spending 10 minutes in the sin bin either side of the half as the scores remained level at the break.

Deacon was alive straight after the restart when he again got on the end of one of Almond’s deliveries only to fire into the grateful arms of Gooch whilst at the other end Bobby White denied Forsythe with his feet. It was the hosts’ who gained the ascendancy on the hour mark; Collins was penalised for a foul and from Robertson’s seemingly innocuous free-kick a freak bounce evaded White as he came to collect and dropped almost apologetically into the net. Winslow almost levelled instantly when Almond’s cross was diverted by Stotfold’s Stokes over the head of Gooch and fortunately for the home side, the crossbar too.

Shayne Almond

Winslow had another let off when Carroll flashed a free-kick across goal and it was from his corner that Stotfold doubled their lead as White came to catch but misjudged and Barker calmly steered home from close range. Gooch then spent time receiving treatment following a heavy fall reminiscent of Sam Ashmead’s three weeks ago however the Stotfold ‘keeper was able to see the game out. Dan Parsons was then shown a second yellow for a foul on Buchanan when he was through on goal albeit the Stotfold player’s momentum seemed to take him down rather than Parsons’ challenge; the Winslow man can feel aggrieved given his first yellow was even harsher after he was subjected to the off the ball antics of Forsythe. A bad day was made worse when Robertson doubled his tally in injury time after being set up by Buchanan.

SSMFL, D1: Winslow hit five with third consecutive win

Winslow United maintained their 100% start to their Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 season with a 5-0 win at FC Broxbourne Borough this afternoon (Saturday).

Dan Parsons

George Tomlin’s side took a twelfth minute lead as Ty Deacon latched onto a Daniel Parsons through ball to rifle home.

The two players combined again on 29 minutes but this time it was Parsons who netted to double Winslow’s advantage.

Four minutes after half time, Mitchell Collins shot home at the far post from Paul Brown’s centre.

In the 82 minute Adam Beckett extended the visitors lead as he scored goal number four from a free-kick.

Just two minutes later, Jack Page played in Charlie Abrahams who made no mistake in bagging goal number five.

SSMFL, D1: Winslow boss believes his side are ready to show character and bounce back

George Tomlin believes his Winslow United side are ready to show character and bounce back after their Emirates FA Cup exit last Sunday.

George Tomlin

The Elmfields gate boss was in positive mood ahead of his side’s trip to FC Broxbourne Borough. Tomlin was quick to praise his players attitudes, a squad is he very happy with he told Sports Shots.
Like every game I’m always looking forward to it, but a bit more than normal as myself and the boys are ready to put the disappointment of Sunday behind us and get back to winning ways.
The attitude and intensity was brilliant at training, as disappointing as last Sunday was, it was needed in a weird way, it has made this fantastic group stronger, we will bounce back.

Sam Ashmead

Apart from Sam Ashmead we have no new injury concerns going into Saturday. Sam is recovering from his injury and unfortunately expected to be out for month. The main thing is he takes his time and come back when he is ready.

FA Cup Ex-Preliminary; Winslow United 2-3 Roman Glass St George

Winslow United – 2
Roman Glass St George – 3

11.08.2019

Winslow United bowed out of the FA Cup at the first attempt on Sunday after defeat to Bristol side Roman Glass St George, a game that was played in ever changing conditions which saw warm sunshine replaced by downpours frequently saw the home side equalise with just eight minutes left and as they pressed for a winner were undone by a sucker punch in added time. For the second game in just five days home keeper Sam Ashmead was the talk of the first half, after scoring from inside his own half on Tuesday he went up for a high ball just three minutes into this game and landing awkwardly was knocked out, after several minutes of treatment he carried on, but after going behind in the second half was eventually substituted to be replaced by midfielder Ricky Gwilliam, by this stage the visitors were ahead but Mitchell Collins levelled only for the last gasp heartbreak to knock the Ploughmen out of the cup!

After the injury to Ashmead the game sparked to life when Winslow were awarded a penalty which Ryan Freshwater duly despatched, just past the half hour mark the home custodian again felt the effects of his injury and had to have more treatment but insisted on carrying on. That decision was justified as within sixty seconds George Lloyd burst through the yellow & blue backline and fired low towards the goal but the keeper still had enough of his faculties to get down low and save to earn the applause of the home faithful, moments later Lloyd again beat the offside trap but again Ashmead got down well to smoother.

Ryan Freshwater opens the scoring

Injury then forced the Roman’s into a change as Ken Oni had to be replaced by Josh Dempsey, Dan Parsons almost doubled the lead when drifting past two defenders out on the left he cut in to the area and his low cross from an acute angle was blocked at the near post by visiting keeper Ross Grimshaw. With all the interruptions the first half went on an additional ten minutes, the last of those saw the equaliser when Ryan Radford broke down the right and sensing Ashmead off his line he chipped over the stranded keeper into the unguarded net. H/T: 1-1

Within nine minutes of the restart the away side took the lead when awarded a penalty of their own, Radford doubled his & his sides tally for the afternoon, shortly after another challenge saw Ashmead go down again and this time he agreed to leave the pitch, Adam Beckett joining the action allowed Gwilliam to don the gloves. Parsons again went close when getting away down the right channel he put the ball through the advancing keepers legs and as amass of bodies all tussled to get to the cross at the front of the six-yard box, a Roman leg stuck out to divert for a corner by an inch or so.

A twenty yard free kick saw Beckett strike the crossbar & bounce over, but on eighty-two minutes a cross from their left found Collins unmarked at the back post who couldn’t miss, straight back up the opposite end a superb reaction save from Gwilliam kept the visitor’s out but he was powerless three minutes into added time when a great strike from Steve Fitzpatrick from distance dipped over his outstretched arm to seal the game for the Bristolians. F/T: 2-3

Attendance: 278

We asked TY:

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

Summers go so slow for me without football, once I’m back off my holiday i just want to get going again!

Signed on for Winslow this summer, what influenced your choice and were there any other clubs that wanted you?

Obviously George getting the job, & what we went through as a group last year was amazing & i wanted a fresh start after the frustrating season I’d just had. Yeah, I had a bit of interest from all different levels but the team here is amazing and I want to see what i can do with these boys

How do you feel pre-season & start of this season has gone for you personally so far?

Pre-season as a whole is always tough, but I’ve been putting in the work & extra so far, I’m feeling a lot fitter and sharper each week

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

Personally, my goal target is thirty-five for the season but as a team i think going up is a must & a good cup run will be good for everyone involved at Winslow

A national FA cup competition this weekend, on a Sunday, sounds familiar!! After last season’s successes for yourself how much are you looking forward to this game?

Last seasons success was mental! But FA cup games are the best games to be involved in, a completely different buzz and its win or go out so we know we always have to be at our best to get as far as we can!

Who has been your biggest influence in football?

Defiantly watching Ronaldo & Cristiano Ronaldo has been key & watching videos over and over trying to learn

How much belief is there in the squad that you can win this tie and progress into the next round, and which players will be key for you to achieve this?

Belief is high and with a team of our quality and what we can produce on our day we know we can get a good result if we turn up! Our spine is key but our whole squad is important not just certain players!

Ty Deacon scores in FA Sunday Cup final in April

Who is the biggest moaner in the dressing room?

Definitely AK!

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

Normally just get a good sleep, stretch and foam roll before i leave & always get a fruit pot before a game!

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

I think the whole squad is appreciated and don’t think anyone is under rated

Who has the worst dress sense at the club?

Charlie Abraham’s I’d say but there’s a few!

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

If Liverpool are playing them, but locally wise it’s probably Aylesbury Dynamos or United just because I’m a local lad and like seeing them do well

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

Definitely would be Alex Little, don’t know what he’s into but don’t think I’d enjoy it!

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

League wise would definitely be the Buckingham Athletic game but the FA Cup game is just as important to us

Finally, after you’ve scored a hattrick today, what can supporters buy you in the bar afterwards?

Three pints, one for each goal!

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 good, went on a few trips abroad so enjoyed getting away, I missed football without fail but it was good to have a rest. Think I played over sixty-five games last year so it took its toll on my body, I tore my ankle ligaments in the last game of the season so I didn’t have much choice then to rest and recover, and otherwise I wouldn’t have rested for so long. But I’ve been cycling so I kept my fitness up

Signed on for Winslow this summer, what influenced your choice and were there any other clubs that wanted you?

I think I had six or seven clubs interested in me joining them this season, so it was a great feeling to be wanted, my agent has been kept busy! But I think with what George has brought to Winslow I didn’t have much choice, all my mates are here, team spirits high, good morale around the club and it’s looking very positive. It’s a great club to be a part of and for me I feel it’s more about enjoyment and I know I will with Winslow

How do you feel pre-season & start of this season has gone for you personally so far?

My pre-season personally hasn’t been great as I tore my ligaments in my foot last season.  I haven’t recovered fully and haven’t been able to work as I hard as normally would but I’ve been trying to manage it best I can. I feel I’ve started well, like I never left and scored a few goals to get me going

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

Promotion without fail. We came close the last two season but I feel we have more of an edge this year, everything seems a lot more positive around the club. For me personally, to score more goals than last season and keep working hard to get the results we need

A national FA cup competition this weekend, on a Sunday, sounds familiar!! After last season’s successes for yourself how much are you looking forward to this game?

I’m buzzing, I can’t wait for Sunday, we didn’t do very well last year with Winslow when we should’ve done a lot better. This year I feel we’re a lot stronger so it would be good to get a good cup run and prove a lot of people wrong. We don’t know a lot about the other team which is a good thing, but on our day were good enough to beat most teams

Who has been your biggest influence in football?

It kills me to say it as his ego is big enough already, God didn’t grace him with any looks but give him a football and it’s a different story. Kieron Schmitt growing up taught me a lot from a young age, spent hours teaching and coaching me to become better and better each day

How much belief is there in the squad that you can win this tie and progress into the next round, and which players will be key for you to achieve this?

It hasn’t crossed anyone’s mind that we will lose, I feel if you come to football not believing you’re going to win every game, then you may as well stay at home. I never come to football thinking we’ll lose, it isn’t in me whoever I come up against. Everyone is key in my eye, we all have our own jobs to do in different ways but player for player we’ll be better than them, it’s just making sure we do the right things and work hard and we won’t have a problem

Alex Kedzierski scores in B&B FA Sunday Cup final in April

Who is the biggest moaner in the dressing room?

My apprentice Ty Deacon. Kids so big time especially when he don’t get his own way, nothings ever good enough for him. He will do well for us this season so we’ll let him off, plus he’s got lovely legs

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

Set my alarm for eight, have a shower and put my pants on, go downstairs & have my porridge and read the paper, stick magic on to chill me out. About nine I go and cut the grass for my old girl before she starts giving it lemon. About ten take my nephew to little kickers, come half eleven I head home for poached eggs on toast. Twelve thirty comes around I pick up Ty who doesn’t stop moaning and then we go a win

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

Most underrated player has got to be the gaffer. I still believe in him, that he’s got it. But I feel a lot of people judge him because of his appearance so they write him off

Who has the worst dress sense at the club?

Jack Page! Some of the clobber he wears is rascal and if he ever does look good he’s wearing something I’ve got, or he’s asked me for advice

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

Being honest I don’t really take much interest in other teams results, I have a look at our league to see how the results have fallen and also my mates results who play elsewhere to see how well they have done

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

Alex Little for me, great lad but I haven’t heard him speak two sentences over the year I’ve known him so I’m baffled to think what his Spotify playlist is like

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

There’s not a game I most want to win I don’t think, I just want to win every game possible and do aswell as we can and keep pushing as a club. Every games important and we have to win them all

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

I don’t think they have to worry about that as I haven’t got a chance. But a hand shake and beer would do me

Sports Shots would like to thank Ty & Alex for their time this week

SSMFL,D1: Winslow joint top after two games following gr-eight start

Winslow United are joint top of the Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 after their first two games.

Goalkeeper Sam Ashmead is congratulated after scoring the opening goal.

 

Winslow Utd 8 MK Robins 0

Goalkeeper Sam Ashmead opened his account for Winslow and got the first of the game with a direct free-kick from his own area, the ball bounced in the Robins area and over the keeper’s head and into the back of the net .

Shayne Almond then scored an absolute worldie; a 35 yard free-kick arrowed into the far top corner. https://twitter.com/StevePeart_/status/1158818082271481856…

Almond then got his second of the night and Winslow’s third with another well taken free-kick as he whipped the ball into the far bottom corner past the dive of the keeper.

3-0 H/T

Alex Kedzierski got Winslow’s fourth as he latched on to a through ball and finished with a cheeky lob over the keeper’s head.

Almond then got his hat-trick goal and Winslow’s fifth with a great finish through the keeper’s legs, with his job done, with 3 goals and assist to his name and one eye on the FA Cup on Sunday, he was replaced by Charlie Abrahams to a standing ovation, while Alex Little replaced Jack Page.

Ty Deacon then got Winslow’s sixth and his first of the night with a tidy finish. He was then replaced by the lively Bernard Nkansah.

Ty Deacon

Winslow, full of confidence, now got their seventh goal of the night through Ricky Gwilliam, who played a 1-2 with Bernard and lashed past the MK Robins Keeper.

And there was still time for one more as Bernard Nkansah who had been lively since coming on scored his first and Winslow’s eighth.
