SSMFL D1: United come from behind for victory at WIND-slow

Winslow United came from behind to defeat Hatfield Town 3-1 in horrendous conditions at Elmfields Gate on Saturday afternoon.

Winslow United celebrate going ahead against Hatfield Town. Saturday 16th March 2019.

Very strong winds and rain gave the Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 encounter an unwanted element.

Hatfield started brightly and went ahead when the home side were penalised for a foul in the area and a spot kick was awarded. The visiting striker made no mistake with a well-taken penalty which gave United goalkeeper Sam Ashmead no chance.

United were soon on the front foot but a counter attack saw Ashmead produce a brilliant one-on-one save to keep Hatfield’s lead to just the one goal.

Matt Cruse found himself in the left-hand channel and cut backwards before producing a cross, which Harry Dalton flicked on. Sean Coles was quickest to react as he pounced to lift the ball over the visiting goalkeeper’s flying block. The ball came back off of the crossbar and Grant Karwacinski rolled the ball in from four yards out.

In driving wind and rain, United took the lead as a short throw to Simon King saw the Winslow captain twist one way and the other before finding Alex Kedzierski, who moved the ball quickly across the pitch to Ryan Freshwater. The United defender took one touch before drilling his shot low into the far corner of the net.

In the opening minutes of the second half, a United attack saw Coles fouled and Freshwater made no mistake in sweeping home his spot kick.

The rest of the game was a battle, mainly against the conditions as the wind became more fierce.

Hatfield had a player sent off late on for a second yellow card.

BSCC, SF 1L: Ath edge Charity Cup semi-final – Exciting 2nd leg to come …

Report by Alex Gilder

Buckingham Athletic find themselves 2-1 up against Winslow United in the first leg of the Buckingham Senior Charity Cup, semi-final. As always it was a game that never fails to disappoint with plenty happening throughout.

MATCH ACTION: Buckingham Athletic v Winslow United. Buckingham Senior Charity Cup, semi-final, 1st leg

Winslow had the first chances in the opening exchanges, both coming from corners.

First, usual corner taker Simon King whipped in a ball towards Harry Dalton which was superbly saved by Josh McAdoo.

The second chance came from the resulting corner, but this time Aaron King found himself free in the six yard box but could not get over the ball as it sailed past the bar.

In the first ten minutes Winslow certainly started the better team and another chance was created by Simon King, who worked some space for himself and fired at goal but smacked the post and the ball went out for a goal kick.

Totally against the run of play and Athletic found themselves 1-0 up through the head of Jack Menday, who rose highest above anyone, and powered past Sam Ashmead’s left. Winslow should have felt aggrieved with letting that goal in after all their pressure was undone.

Ath now, were getting a foothold in the game as Neil King struck a free kick but was comfortably saved by Ashmead to his right. However Winslow were a constant threat form corners, this time Marcus Hussey could only head wide from a delightful Simon King corner.

With the yellow and blues not taking their chances, at the other end the Athletic capitalised and made it 2-0 through star-striker Robbie Carter. He broke free and saw himself bearing down on goal but three recovering Winslow defenders stopped his path to scoring, so he cleverly cut back and passed off to Nick Bines, who had his shot cleared off the line, furthermore the ball cannoned back to Bines who squared to Carter, who had a simple tap in from a couple yards out. 2-0 to the dark and light blues.

But Winslow were not fazed by going another goal down as they reacted brilliantly. Daniel Parsons, who looked dangerous from kick off, drifted past two Buckingham defenders and pulled back to Aaron King, who had his shot deflected over the bar.

Winslow strived to half the deficit as a short free kick was played into Aaron King, who did well to control, turn and shoot which was saved by McAdoo, into the path of Ryan Freshwater who was deemed to be offside.

The Ploughman’s end to the second half was ruined by a red card after the half time whistle given to Anthony Ball for descent towards the referee.

At half time the score stood 2-0 to Athletic but they knew the game was not over yet.

The first minutes of the second half seemed to had lost a slight bit of tempo from both teams as they struggled to create any real clear cut chances. Then all of a sudden a moment of genius from Sam Olewale saw him beat his man and dink the cross towards the head of Carter, but there was not enough pace to trouble Ashmead in goal. This sprung the second half into some life.

United’s first chance of the second half came from a diagonal ball switched to Aaron King, who took his shot early, but some more fine glovework by McAdoo prevented the prolific striker from scoring.

But Aaron King was to have his way with the help from his brother Simon. He delivered a cracking ball in that caused havoc among the Athletic defence, but Aaron King got hold of the ball, turned and finished wonderfully into the top right corner. Winslow kept battling a credit to them they were deserved for their perseverance.

Now United were having the better of the chances and this time coming from Parsons, who picked up the ball at the edge of the area and rifled just wide of the mark. A momentum shift in favour of the yellow and blues.

Parsons once again was causing trouble to the Athletic backline however this time Menday paid the ultimate price as he challenged Parsons, which was seen as a second bookable offence to the referee.

Soon after a long ball from Ashmead was misjudged by Dan Staley, lead to Aaron King pouncing on the loose ball, and he looked almost certain to score if it was not for the heroic recovering challenge by the Athletic defender. That definitely made up for his mistake just moments prior.

The game was nearing an end with Athletic doing their best to see it out and unfortunately the ploughman were dealt a huge setback as Bowers was seen a straight red for his double-footed lunge towards Kevin Owusu.

The last action of the game came from a Simon King free kick that was superbly turned behind by McAdoo.

Full time and Griffiths’ men had won the game 2-1 against their local rivals, Winslow United. Alleyne will take this narrow defeat going into the next leg as the first half belonged to Athletic and the second to Winslow. This close game makes the second leg all the more to look forward to and it is a fixture you do not want to miss out on.

SSMFL D1: Winslow United 1 Wodson Park 2 by Alex Gilder

Report by Alex Gilder

High-flying Winslow United were dealt a setback in their promotion bid as they suffered a surprising 2-1 loss to a dogged and determined Wodson Park.

Winslow United – Stand

The opening ten minutes was mediocre with Winslow looking slightly off their usual pace but it had to be said Wodson looked well up for the fight.

The first real chance of the game came Winslow’s way through a delightful move that saw Aaron King play Sean Coles in behind with Coles whipping a peach of a ball in to the centre of the box as Luke Desmond manage to get on the end of it but could only find the gloves of Joe Wells. Winslow were now really getting a foothold in the game and pressing the Wodson backline.

The pressure nearly told with a fantastic sweeping move by the yellow and blues ending with Simon King hitting the upright and the ball rebounding to him again but he could shot narrowly wide.

More Winslow chances came as Alex Kedzierski freed Desmond, who found Aaron King in the middle who controlled and shot but was equaled by a cracking tip over the bar by Wells.

However all the Winslow pressure was undone as light and dark blues found themselves 1-0 up, a goal that was totally against the run of play. An intended cross from Antonio Fusco was parried onto the bar by Sam Ashmead, but the ball fell straight to the feet of Jordan Halls who tapped in for the visitors.

Now the complexion of the game game was changing in favour of Wodson Park as the had a goal disallowed for offside from Ciaran Donegan. Then minutes later the ball was in the back of the Winslow net once again but another offside, this time the hosts failing to deal with a ball in. The yellow and blues were riding their luck midway through the first half.

Credit to Winslow they finished the half strongly with a plethora of chances. The first key chance coming from Grant Karwacinski who blazed over from a Simon King cross. The second one was the best opportunity to get back on level terms as the two brothers Simon and Aaron King were bearing down on goal as Simon passed to Aaron who slotted home only to be cancelled out for offside.

The half time whistle sounded as Wodson Park went in the dressing room the happier of the two teams 1-0 up but Paul Alleyne’s men more or less dominated while the visitors were making the breakthrough hard to come by for the hosts.

A very good early start to the second half from David Stingemore’s players with Halls getting in behind the backline and shot with a unconvincing save from Ashmead but Karwacinski cleared any danger that was present. From the resulting corner Ciaran Donegan found himself free six yards out from goal as he volleyed in to make it 2-0 to the visiting outfit.

Tempers were really flaring for both teams now because the flow of the game kept being halted by the referee. Those tempers ultimately boiled over for Halls as he was shown yellow for his second bookable offence for kicking out.

Still both teams were not creating many clear-cut chances since Wodson doubled their lead.

Simon King had a free kick in a dangerous position but was equalled by a good low save from Wells who was looking unbeatable.

Another home team chance came with Aston Goss floating in towards Karwacinski, who could only manage to head over the bar.

The chances kept coming for Winslow as Simon King once again tried his luck from long range but this time the shot clipped the top of the net and out for a goal kick. Winslow were once again having another spell of dominance but Wodson Park were having none of it as the would not allow the ball to go into their net.

The game was all yellow and blue now and they could of halved the deficit but the referee called a free kick instead of a penalty with what was a really close call. From the resulting free kick Aston Goss curled viciously towards the back stick but produced another fine save by Wells. This time Kedzierski played a beautiful ball through to Aaron King who could only fire over the bar but to his credit the recovering defender did just about enough to put him off.

On the counter attack the visitors could of put the game to bed as George Lyons was through on goal but could only managed to hit the post. A lucky escape for Winslow but Wodson had counter attacked brilliantly throughout the whole game. Back down the Winslow end where Aaron King laid off Simon King but once again another great save by Wells who was having the game of his life. Finally the hosts pressure paid off through a free kick smashed into the wall by Simon King with the ball falling to Aaron King who made it 2-1.

It was a nervous last couple of minutes for Wodson Park but they ultimately held on to complete a 2-1 win. Winslow had spells of dominance throughout the whole game and created a plentiful of chances but it was not to be for the high flyers today. However the resilience shown by David Stingemore’s men will be something he can be proud of as they took three points back to Hertfordshire.
