SSMFL D1; Ampthill Town 0-2 Buckingham Town

Ampthill Town – 0

Buckingham Town – 2

10.11.2018

Ampthill Town succumbed to two first half strikes on Saturday as their guests took the points back to Milton Keynes on a wet and chilly afternoon at Ampthill Park, and despite creating numerous chances the hosts simply could not find a way past the vastly experienced Buckingham backline. Despite the club putting on an excellent show for Remembrance weekend, Ants manager Paul Toms admitted afterwards his sides performance was one to forget especially after a good showing midweek at Brimsdown, two goals from Jack Clarkson sealed the win and lifted his side away from the wrong end of the South Midlands League Division One table and to within a couple of points of their opponents.

The home side should have taken the lead in the third minute when a left wing cross from Tom Carter was flicked on in the middle by a red shirt straight into the path of the incoming Aaron Matthews but on the volley he screwed wide from twelve yards out, the away sides first chance fell to Drew Mitten whose low drive ricocheted off various boots before spiralling out for a corner. An Ampthill corner was half cleared out to Mark Smith who floated it back into the box where Carter headed back across keeper Bob White who had to dive to push around his post, the set piece wasn’t dealt with and from the penalty arc Ash Mead absolutely thumped over the crossbar.

A ball knocked over the yellow backline saw Gabrielius Judickas turn his marker before firing towards the bottom corner where it appeared Ampthill keeper Josh Thompson wouldn’t reach but covering across Smith cleared, from the corner the ball reached Alex Marius who over the shoulder fired high over the top. A cross from the Buckingham right then found Clarkson unmarked in the middle but without realising how much time he had he thumped his header high over the top, but on twenty-two minutes he did open the scoring when played down the middle he had the attention of two defenders however he managed to get his shot away that deflected up off the leg of Lee Neufville and looped over Thompson and in.

Minutes silence for Armistice 100

At the other end a rasping drive from Carter soared towards White’s net until Enoch Sare put his head in the way to deflect over, the home side were then nearly made to pay when a long ball upfield looked set to be cleared by Mead but he slipped allowing Judickas to strike first time but way over the bar, before Mitten again tried his luck from eighteen yards but lacking conviction it was a comfortable collection for Thompson. The Robins missed a guilt edged chance when Shane Uings played a good one-two with Judickas who fizzed his cross along the six yard box and running in at the back post Clarkson just couldn’t get on the end to convert.

Six minutes ahead of the interval Buckingham scored their second when Mitten out on the byline crossed into the middle where Clarkson slotted home, their hosts almost immediately responded when Matthews was sent scampering away towards goal and avoiding defender Sam Bearman he managed to get his shot away but White gathered with both hands down to his left. The home side were then denied a last minute goal back thanks to some bodies on the line defending, an initial shot from Brad Clarke was blocked and the ball rolled out to his fellow front man Ash Higgins who, with White committed to the first effort and out of the game, side footed towards the bottom corner but from nowhere Bearman threw himself in front of the shot to block. H/T: 0-2

The opening few minutes after the break saw the home side really struggle to make an impact on their visitors, the frontmen were having to drop deep to get on the ball meaning there was a lack of targets once they were on the front foot. A free kick some twenty-five yards out gave an opportunity for Carter to try and bend one around the wall but his effort was glanced away for a corner, Buckingham threatened again when Mitten crossed from the left and in front of goal Judickas accepted on his chest but to his dismay the power took it into the gloves of Thompson.

Sam Bearman in another goal saving block to deny

Ampthill midfielder Jack Mordecai was then equally disappointed when set away down the left channel after beating the offside trap, as the red shirts claimed he was off he simply rolled the ball towards White who gratefully smothered. The home side then went close when a throw found Clarke inside the area, he slipped a pass through for substitute Manny Obodo to attack the front post where he crossed into the middle and a shot from the incoming Matthews was gathered by White right on his goal line, a poor clearance allowed a cross back into the box where sandwiched between two red shirts Clarke got to the cross to firmly head down only to watch his effort bounce agonisingly wide of the back post.

Clarkson tried to seal his hatrick with a twenty-five yard low drive inside the near post which was inches wide, a minute later Marius tried a similar feat from the opposite side but he pulled his drive way wide of the target. With time running out the hosts suddenly burst into life, Obodo collecting the ball inside the own half he went on a mazy run that saw him evade four tackles and blocks and still he went on, as he neared the penalty area and with options either side he drove wildly past the post, their next attack saw a pass up to Higgins with his back to goal, he held up well but with options either side he tried to thread a pass through a crowded box which saw a block and long clearance and the chance was gone.

A throw then found the chest of Clarke inside the Robins area, he managed to control before turning his marker but then lifted over the crossbar, the final cross of the afternoon saw White lose track of the ball which found its way to Kieran Phillips who stabbed towards the unguarded net, but yet again Bearman was closest to throw himself in front of the shot to block and the danger was cleared. F/T: 0-2

SSMFLD1; Ants duo working hard to brings success to Town

Saturday 10th November 2018

Ampthill Town v Buckingham Town

Spartan South Midlands League Division One

Ampthill Park

K.O. 3.00pm

Free entry to all current and former servicemen & women #Armistice100

Ampthill Town host Buckingham Town on Saturday in Sports Shots first visit to Ampthill Park this season, and they will be looking to bounce back after their first defeat in five on Wednesday night down at Brimsdown. Having won their last two games at home, Town will be looking for three points that could bounce them up from eleventh place in the Spartan South Midlands Division One table as high as fifth place potentially.

Ampthill have seen many changes in personnel this season which has frustrated manager Paul Toms since his arrival in the summer, but his side are still in three cup competitions and a run of results would lift them high up the table going into the winter period, but Buckingham Town themselves need the points to ensure they are not dragged into a scrap at the wrong end of the table. Entry is free to any current or former servicemen & women in honour of remembrance weekend.

This week Sports Shots caught up with striker Brad Clarke and recent captain Glenn Cooksley ahead of the game to ask both how they ended up at Ampthill Town, their style of play and how the season has been so far, Brad replied:

I’ve been here for three seasons now and I live locally so after university I just wanted to play football and Ampthill were my closest team. I like playing in the number ten role as I like being able to turn and run at people, but the season has been inconsistent for me, I’ve had a few knocks which has limited my game time and performances

Glenn has also been there a while now:

Three years ago the then manager called me and I came over, I either play as a right wing back or a holding midfield role. I’m aggressive in a positive way, but this season I have been below my regular standard and I’m yet to reach match fitness as I started late into the season

How has the season been so far under the new manager, and what are Glenn’s targets for the remainder?

It’s been good, a positive atmosphere around the place, I like the manager as he has a long term plan for the club. I’m personally hoping for a top six finish so we can get into next season’s FA Cup

Brad is looking at silverware:

It’s been good so far, we’ve tried various formations, positions and players but we’ve got a settled team now and hopefully we can push on and finish as high as possible in the league, also hopefully we can win one of the cups we are still involved in

How has the striker found the standard of the league this year, and what is a realistic target for Ampthill?

The standard has been quite good, the top three teams have impressed me as they seem to be pulling away from the rest of the pack. If we can string some results together then the top six is a realistic aim

Glenn has one team above the rest:

It’s an up and down league with some very good teams but also some very average teams. Broadfields have been the best team I have played against so far this season

Glenn Cooksley

We asked Glenn how the cup competitions have been panning out for Ampthill:

They have been positive and shown that we can beat teams in the league above whilst also not getting caught out by lower opposition. I personally think we can go on from here and win some silverware

Brad also thinks his side can go a long way in these competitions:

The cup games have been enjoyable, it’s good to keep winning & progressing in each of the cups. If we play well there is no reason why we can’t go on and win at least one of them

Hosting new to South Midlands Buckingham Town on Saturday, what does Brad expect from the game?

I don’t actually know much about them other than by looking at their league results, but I’m sure they’ll be a good team who are capable of scoring goals, so we’ll need a positive performance to get the result against them

Glenn can also only go by the table:

All I can comment on is the fact that they are around us in the league table and that doesn’t lie. I’d assume it will be a close game

We then asked Glenn which of his team mates have impressed so far this term, and who he thinks could player at a higher level:

Brad Clarke has always been sharp with great feet & could easily go on to play higher level football, plus our keeper Josh Thompson in the past month has saved us points with some great saves

Brad echoed the sentiment on the Ants keeper:

Various players have performed well since the start of the season, Josh has been consistent and has often kept us in games with his saves. Also, new additions to the squad Dan Blackman & Ash Higgins have played well throughout the season

Brad Clarke

How has Brad found the travelling in the league so far?

It is difficult, especially after working all day and then having to rush home to then drive into places like North London. However, once you’re at the game ready to play, you forget about the travelling. Other teams in this league have to do the same journeys to us so over a season it all balances out

Glenn would like games to be arranged differently:

I think the fixtures could be arranged better, local midweek games with the long travel games being held on Saturday’s

Rounding up we asked Glenn how Wednesday’s defeat at Brimsdown was, and how his side get back on track:

Honestly, I didn’t think we deserved to lose, we had a lot of the ball and many chances but it just wasn’t our night in front of goal. We need to bounce back on Saturday, I always fancy our chances when we are at home

Brad see’s the defeat as just a hiccup:

Hopefully Wednesday was just a blip, we played well for large periods of the game but we just couldn’t score, we deserved something from the game. A positive performance on Saturday will get us back on track and then hopefully we can start stringing some results together again

Sports Shots would like to thank both Glenn & Brad for their time this week

SSMFL D1; Ampthill Town promote graduate Dillon up to captain

Ampthill Town FC have this week named Louie Dillon as their new first team captain with Brad Clarke becoming vice-captain.

Town manager Paul Toms explained all this week to Sports Shots:

Since taking over as first team manger of Ampthill Town in June of this year, I knew there would be a settling in period. A new county, a different league and more importantly a new group of players, a lot to learn in a short time period. I knew that there would be lots of challenges in the short term, that would require decisions that I would not need to be afraid to make for the better of club, my philosophy is to develop youth players and build a foundation for long term success.

With Louie as my captain, I cannot see a better player here to work with on this journey, he is a strong leader on & off the field and has the respect of every player and the coaches alike. I’ve also named Brad as vice-captain, I feel it is very important to have the spine & core of the side as locally based lads that care for the club, and want to create a long term DNA identity

Paul Toms hands over the armband

Ampthill Town chairman Gary Maidment also spoke proudly on the new appointment:

It is a proud moment for me to announce Louie Dillon as the new captain at Ampthill Town Football Club. Louie has been with the club from an early age and played for me at under eighteen level and it was a proud moment when he was selected to play for our senior team aged just sixteen years & nine days old. He has gone on to make one hundred and sixty eight appearances for our senior team since 2014. He debuted as club captain last weekend in our away win at Codicote fc. I wish him all the best in the position and the future

Louie Dillon

Louie spoke on the challenge ahead:

Being captain is very important to me and is something I’ve had as my goal for the last few seasons, it’s a big responsibility that I look forward to taking on and working more closely with everyone at the club. I feel I can bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the team as captain and a positive attitude to every game, I’m excited to work closely with Paul on his philosophies and to help develop Ampthill Town in every way I possibly can.

This is a great club for bringing young players into the development side & first team, and already this season Paul has given many youth players a chance to prove themselves, I hope Paul and I can work together to keep getting young players involved and motivated to push towards first team football. I hope our run of wins can carry on and we can push on to a really successful season

SSMFLD1; Ampthill Town boss hoping some more magic is on View this Saturday

Saturday 8th September 2018

Ampthill Town v Park View

Spartan South Midlands League Division One

Ampthill Park

K.O. 3.00pm

Ampthill Town host divisional newcomers Park View on Saturday at Ampthill Park and will be looking to build upon a good start to the season with another three points. Currently sitting in sixth place in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One table, Town will be looking to keep the Park View winless streak going, although their visitors recorded a midweek cup win whilst Ampthill were heavily beaten at Hillingdon in the first division cup.

Paul Toms

This week Sports Shots caught up with Town manager Paul Toms to ask how he feels his squad have started the season:

It’s been an inconsistent start all round, player availability has been the worst I’ve ever known in nine years of coaching & managing, and the lack of continuity has shown in our results. I’ve used twenty-six players already and only had six available for all our matches! We have a strong squad, a talented squad, but I am hoping the holiday season and stag do season will all die off now and that we can concentrate on putting a positive run together

We asked if Town have much info on their opponents for the weekend?

I’ll be honest and say we know very little about Park View, but we have to give them a lot of respect as they were champions of division two last year, and I imagine it will be a close game on Saturday

How good a game was it last time in the league at the Park against Amersham?

I always knew playing Amersham would be a tough test, as I know they are coached to play the right way. Going three up on the hour I was thinking we could go on to get five or six here. But sloppy defending and poor decision making brought Amersham back to three each, however credit where credit is due, we never stopped believing and scored in the final minute through a piece of brilliance from Brad Clarke to win four-three

Since then Ampthill have been beaten in two cup competitions by Edgware & Hillingdon, how were those games?

I watched Edgware twice and felt confident we could get a result against them, as I felt our style would counter their very direct way of playing. We took the lead, but missing players in key areas especially the goalkeeper cost us dearly. But no excuses as at two-one we went for it but got caught on the counter attack to concede again. As for Hillingdon, again no excuses but we had eleven players unavailable due to work, injuries & holidays and it went against us. That will be a tough place to go for anyone, but I look forward to going back with a full squad to choose from. I do wish both teams all the very best and hope they both go on long cup runs

We asked Paul how he feels his squad is shaping up this far in:

We have a very strong talented squad, unfortunately its very stretched at the moment, but week by week players are returning and we’ve also added some players this week too. For me the main focus is the league and to push as high as we can

Brad Clarke & Ash Higgins have scored seven goals between them so far, how good are they?

Where do I start with Brad, AKA ‘the little magician’! I’ve had some players in squads over the years but Brad simply oozes class. A talented skilful smart player & a match winner, someone I trust. As for Ash, he adds a lot to Ampthill having played at decent clubs before like Leighton Town and Chesham United, he adds that experience that is needed on and off the field. This is his second spell under me, he’s player we can look to, a player that creates, can hold up play but most important he is a finisher. I’m expecting a good tally come what may

Who has been the best side the manager has seen so far this term?

That’s a tough one, Enfield & Harefield are both great sides with different styles. For me Enfield just edge it because I love their style, they have a system of playing in a very positive way

Finally, we asked with two home games and a trip to bottom side Codicote in the next three, has Paul set any targets from these three games?

Although I do set goals for the team and individuals, every game is winnable in this division, but I’m looking no further forward than Park View on Saturday. A good performance & hopefully a good result!

This Saturday morning our coaches, players & I will be in town starting at Waitrose meeting the locals trying to promote what is a fantastic club and talk about the work we are doing from the youth all the way through to the veteran’s side. The local community is very important to us at Ampthill Town and as we grow we hope our fan base does too

Sports Shots would like to thank Paul for his time this week.

SSMFLD1; Keeper Brad Kirkwood talks life at Ampthill Town & trip to Rayners Lane this Saturday

Saturday 18th August 2018

Rayners Lane v Ampthill Town

Spartan South Midlands League Division One

Tithe Farm Sports Club

K.O. 3.00pm

Ampthill Town face the long trip down to Harrow on Saturday when they visit Rayners Lane in what will be the hosts first home game of the new season. Town will be looking to get back on track after a win & a draw in their opening two games were followed by two home defeats, whilst Rayners Lane have taken four points from their opening two Spartan South Midlands League Division One games.

This week Sports Shots caught up with Town keeper Brad Kirkwood and asked how life has been since he joined the club:

Yeah, it’s been good, I’ve enjoyed it. It’s always a bit daunting getting to know a completely new squad but I came over with a couple of other players from Leighton Town and we’ve all seemed to gel really quickly. The guys behind the scenes have all been very welcoming and you can tell how much they care about the club and its players which is always good to see

And how has pre-season been?

We were a bit inconsistent during pre-season, a couple of games were won quite comfortably where as we struggled in others. At this level you tend to see that sort of thing with fixtures, due to coming up against teams of different abilities & ambitions for the season ahead. In the very first training session that Paul took, he explained his plans for the season and went into details about the way he wanted us to play. Credit to him, JP & Pistol for putting on sessions that actually worked on this rather than just doing drills for the sake of being there

We asked Brad how good the squad is at Ampthill:

I feel confident in the team that we’ve started the season with. There have been a few players coming & going in a short space of time but we’ve got a decent squad with some older, more experienced players, but at the same time there are several young players who have loads of ability. Each game we’ve played so far has had a very different starting eleven & I’d personally put this down to people taking their chances when they come on to show Paul what they can actually bring to the team, so that just shows the sort of options & cover we have available in most areas of the pitch!

Brad Kirkwood came in from Leighton Town this summer

So what does Brad think of the start of the season for his new club?

The season couldn’t have started any better really, we came up against a strong Enfield side, were away from home and came under a lot of pressure in the first half, but we managed to keep them at bay and came out much better in the second half and I felt deservedly left there with a 1-0 win. The game at Bedford was very similar in the fact that most of the first forty-five was played in our half, but then we were much stronger in the second. The two home games that followed were much tougher, Harefield were a very good side and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw them in the top two come the end of the season. In the Enfield game on Tuesday I just think we lacked a bit of quality all over the pitch but we had a chat about it in the changing room after the game and we’re all confident we can bounce back strongly this weekend

Finally, another tough game at Rayners Lane this week-end, how does Brad view this game?

If I’m honest I don’t really know much about them. I would imagine it’ll be a tough game as all games in this league are, but if we play like we have done at times then I’m more than confident that the hard work will pay off & we can come away with the three points

Sports Shots would like to thank Brad for his time this week

SSMFL; Enfield Borough v Ampthill Town preview

With the football World Cup long forgotten from this summer, the new football season begins this week-end.

Ampthill Town begin their Spartan South Midlands Football League Division One campaign this week-end, when they travel down to Enfield Borough on Saturday.

New beginning for Ampthill Town

After finishing fourth last season, Ampthill have this summer seen a change of management with Paul Toms brought in to hopefully help the club push up the league table this season, and this week Sports Shots caught up with the new man:

Pre-season so far has been what I expected, players leaving & new players joining, and it will probably take a good couple of months to finally settle down. For me it’s about finding commitment from players and I believe we have filtered out the ones that maybe got too comfortable. The transition for players when new management comes in can be challenging and needs that settle in period.

If I’m honest we’ve come on leaps and bounds as we’ve only been together as a group basically five weeks , so we’re ready yes but we are no way near the finished article.

I’m very happy with the squad, we have massive depth in every area but I feel we won’t reach our potential for a few months yet.

I expect a tough physical game from Enfield, I watched them a couple of times last season and we have a game plan that I hope will work. We have an honest bunch that are not afraid to do all the out of possession work needed to achieve success.

There is no real team news for Saturdays game . But I can announce that I have installed Carl Harrison as club captain for the 2018-19 season and he had installed Josh Peacock as vice captain.

Carl signed for Ampthill in the summer and has already become an integral part of the club . Carl is a natural leader and a very honest footballer.

Sports Shots would like to thank Paul for his time this week.

ICYMI: Sports Shots interview with the new manager Paul Toms from earlier in the summer can be viewed here: 

SSMFL; Ampthill Town FC join Sports Shots

Sports Shots are delighted to announce that Ampthill Town FC are to join our list of clubs that we cover with immediate effect. The Spartan South Midlands Division One club have this summer recruited Paul Toms as their new manager for the season ahead, and the new man brought with him John Phillips as first team coach and one of their first calls was to Sports Shots to see if we’d add them to our portfolio of non-league clubs. After a brief conversation with both men and club chairman Gary Maidment it was agreed, and we welcome Ampthill Town on board, and wish them every success for the season ahead.

There have been several big changes at Ampthill Town over the past few years, the most notable being the new clubhouse that proudly stands behind the park end goal. To read the full story on the new and improved facilities from last year click here: https://www.premierleague.com/news/482995

The club were formed back in 1881 but it wasn’t until the early 1950’s that they joined the South Midlands League where they  were relatively successful culminating in winning the league title in the 1959/60 season and finishing runners-up the following year. Just four years later the club finished bottom of the South Midlands Premier and moved over to the United Counties League where they remained for twenty-six seasons in various divisions before returning to the South Midlands in time for the 1991/92 season, where they have remained ever since.

New club facilities

In the eighteen seasons since the turn of the century, Ampthill have spent all bar four in the second tier (division one in today’s money), their most recent success being in 2011/12 where they finished runners-up to London Colney and were promoted to the premier division. Their first season saw them finish fifth, and the following year they claimed the runners-up spot to Hanwell Town, but the success was to be short lived as the following year a bottom two place finish saw ‘The Amps’ relegated back to division one, where they have finished in fourteenth position for each of the last three seasons.

FA Cup runs have eluded the club, not since 1986 have they progressed to the first qualifying round, but they have seen more recent success in the FA Vase. Having reached the third round previously in 1976/77, 1981/82, 1983/84 & 2007/08, they finally went one further in 2011/12 before going out in the fourth round and that run granted them entry into the competition much later the following year. Entering at the second-round stage, Town got as far as the fifth round before Hadleigh beat them by the odd goal in three at Ampthill Park. The following season saw the furthest the club have reached when a run to the quarter-finals eventually saw them knocked out at Eastbourne United.

After the opening of the new clubhouse last season, the club have again been busy this summer with the completion of a new barrier that runs around the perimeter of the playing area meaning the pitch is now fully enclosed. Images for the new barrier can be viewed here: https://twitter.com/GazAtfc/status/1002857667101188096

For anyone unfamiliar with the Spartan South Midlands League, Ampthill will this season be facing thirty-eight league games home & away, two separate South Midlands cup competitions, the FA Vase, and two separate Bedfordshire cup competitions.

Anyone looking for their football fix in Ampthill can take out an ATFC clubhouse membership, and for just £4.99 per month you receive free admission to every home game, a fully licenced bar at clubhouse prices, live TV sports nights, and the bar also has BT Sports. The perfect opportunity for the people of Ampthill to get behind their football club.

The club are looking for helpers to get involved behind the scenes if anyone has some spare time to volunteer. General committee members are required for match day duties, as well as a secretary & an assistant child welfare officer for the youth section. For any businesses looking to advertise, there are some very competitive packages available, and the clubhouse is always available for hire for parties or meetings. Anyone interested in any of the positions or hiring the club should contact Gary on 07450 018848.

Sports Shots went to meet new 1st team manager Paul Toms and spoke about his thoughts on joining the club, and his vision for the future. The whole interview can be viewed here:
