BREAKING … United chairman praises Alleyne & Joe

Winslow United chairman Andy Setterfield has heaped praise on Paul Alleyne and Roni Joe after the club’s announcement this morning that the duo will be standing down at the end of the season.

Andy Setterfield

Manager Alleyne and his assistant Joe have enjoy success at Elmfields Gate since they joined in the summer of 2017.

Their first season saw a third place finish in the Spartan South Midlands League, division 1 with 83 points from their 38 games while they reach the semi-final of the Berks & Bucks Intermediate Cup.

This season United sit third again with a Buckingham Senior Charity Cup, semi-final, second leg tie still to play on Tuesday 16th April, 7.45pm.

Setterfield told Sports Shots:

I have worked closely with Paul and Roni over the last two seasons and I would like to place on record both personally and on behalf of the club, my thanks for the contribution they have both made.

Our first FA cup game at Elmfields Gate will be something we will all remember for a very long time.

We would like to wish Paul and Roni our very best for the future and I know that they will always be welcome at Elmfields Gate.

BREAKING … Alleyne & Joe to stand down at Winslow United at the end of the season

Winslow United manager Paul Alleyne and his assistant Roni Joe will stand down at the end of the current season.

Paul Alleyne

A club statement, released to Sports Shots, reads as follows:

It is with regret that we must announce that First Team Manager Paul Alleyne and Assistant Manager Roni Joe have decided to step down from their roles at the end of the season due to family commitments.

Anyone who knows Paul and Roni will know that this decision has not been taken lightly.

Paul and Roni joined the club at the start of the 2017/18 season creating a squad of players that in their first season together created a little piece of Winslow history with not only our highest league one position for 43 years but also getting the club in to the FA Cup for the first time. A feat that looks likely to be replicated this season.

This does of course mean that we are now in search of a new management team for the 2019/20 season to build on the success that Paul and Roni have brought us over the last two years.

Anyone interested is encouraged to contact United chairman Andy Setterfield via his email address

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.
