FASC QF; Black Horse (Redditch) 3-5 Aylesbury Flooring

Black Horse (Redditch) – 3
Aylesbury Flooring – 5

17.02.2019

Aylesbury Flooring are into the semi-finals of the FA Sunday Cup after yet another thrilling cup comeback, this time at Black Horse (Redditch) who at three-one up with half an hour remaining thought they were home & hosed however George Tomlin’s men showed tremendous character for the second round running and scored four times in the last twenty-two minutes against a side who had only conceded four goals in their eight league games this season! Taking an early lead looked to set the Buckinghamshire side on their way much to the delight of the healthy numbers who travelled with the team, however goals either side of half-time looked to have ended the dream of reaching the final in their ultimate season but those supporters sang relentlessly and once their side clawed a goal back the noise levels rose to spur their heroes on, they now go on to face Sunderland Southwick at a neutral venue in the last four of the competition.

Aylesbury started the brighter and a second minute drive into the box from Dave Brown saw a lunging tackle from Josh Westwood which had the front man looking for a penalty but the referee indicated a corner was all he was getting, Lynton Goss then got down the flank & fizzed the ball across the box but behind the red shirts in front of goal, although his next attack led to the opening goal when Alex Kedzierski fed him to the left of goal & his shot deflected off a defender away for a corner, he took the set piece himself swinging into the edge of the six-yard box where Jordan Jenkins held off his marker to head his team into a seventh minute lead.

Jordan Jenkins heads Flooring into early lead

Shocked by the opening goal Black Horse were straight up the other end from the restart to win a corner which was curled perfectly onto the head of Lewis Clarke who unmarked could only thump wide of Liam Smith’s right hand post. Parsons saw a great run forward halted with a trip on the edge of the box just before the half hour mark, Mitchell Collins took the free kick which rebounded back off the defensive wall from where he tried again on the volley only to lift over the top, a throw to the home side was launched into the box where a flick on found Luke Dugmore but with the outside of his boot he spiralled his effort away from goal.

Flooring then spurned a glorious chance to double their lead when a poor goal kick from home custodian David Hancock found Parsons thirty yards from goal, with an empty net ahead he opted to pass to Brown who under pressure lost control and the chance was gone, whilst another long throw from the hosts found Ricardo Richards in the Aylesbury box and with back to goal he tried the overhead routine but cleared the crossbar with ease. With eight minutes of the half left Black Horse levelled with a somewhat fortuitous goal, a mishit shot across the box found Goss who tried to control but the ball bounced away from him allowing Clarke to pounce, hitting it first time wrong footed Smith and he could only watch as it rolled into the bottom corner. H/T: 1-1

Luke Dugmore puts home side three-one up

The Aylesbury faithful had barely retuned their vocal chords for the second period when Black Horse took the lead just four minutes in, a reaching punt forward through the visiting defence form Dugmore saw Rees James advance two paces before knocking past Smith and in off the post. The goal rocked Flooring although Ty Deacon combined well with Goss down the right to see his shot blocked, the ball rolling out to full back Ollie Hogg who blazed high over the top, then just before the hour mark they were undone again when an attack broke down and the ball sent long down the flank for James to latch onto where he squared inside to Dugmore who turned and flashed a shot across Smith who got his hand to it but could only help push it up into the roof of the net.

At this point the same was seemingly done & dusted as Black Horse looked dominant, a long pass down their left towards Jack Wilson saw him go up against substitute Jack Page in the air and what looked a nudge in the back was waved play on allowing the midfielder a free run at goal but he could only fire over the bar, but from there Flooring slowly got themselves back into the fixture, on sixty-five minutes a throw from Collins found the head of Deacon in front of goal which forced Hancock to fling himself away to save one handed and gather at the second attempt earning the applause of the crowd on the touchlines, but just three minutes later he was powerless to stop Deacon from pulling his side back into the game.

Ryan Freshwater levels the tie from the spot

Goss attacked the left hand side of the area and got past his marker before shooting low at goal, somehow the ball squirmed under the dive of the Horse keeper and behind him the Flooring striker couldn’t miss and it was game on! Parsons collected a throw out on the right and travelled to the angle of the box before trying to curl inside the far post but Hancock was behind it all the way, then on seventy-five minutes his side were awarded a penalty when Goss drove into the box and coming across him Clarke dived in to tackle but instead brought him down, despite the protests Ryan Freshwater stepped up and sent the keeper the wrong way to fire into the bottom corner and level the contest once more, suddenly the hosts looked tired and the guests were re-awoken.

Black Horse defended gallantly but Flooring weren’t finished by any means, on eight-five minutes they got their noses in front again when Goss threaded an inch perfect pass through the eye of a needle between the home backline to find Kedzierski who hit it first time from the edge of the penalty arc to loop over Hancock and into the bottom corner to spark wild celebrations on and off the field. Still they wanted more & another Aylesbury cross was headed clear but running in Hogg closely attended by his marker had to shoot first time but could only steer wide, ahead of a great run from Goss in midfield into the box saw him round the keeper but go too wide, regaining the ball he turned and fired at goal but Hancock had recovered and was comfortable to collect on his goal line.

Players & supporters celebrate together

Deep into added time Page sealed his sides passage into the semi-finals for the first time in their history, Goss and Loyiso Recci clashed on the far left touchline and despite the home faithful calling for a foul the ball rolled on where Kedzierski collected to advance, looking up he spotted bodies in the box so curled in a cross which Deacon stepped over allowing it to reach Page, he evaded the challenge of skipper Joseph Cole to poke past Hancock inside the near post to complete yet another unforgettable comeback. F/T: 3-5

BBFA CCSF; Aylesbury Flooring 3-1 Emmer Green

Aylesbury Flooring – 3
Emmer Green – 1

10.02.2019

Aylesbury Flooring made it through to the Berks & Bucks Sunday Intermediate cup final for the third successive season after beating Emmer Green on a wet and extremely muddy morning at Fairford Leys, although for almost an hour the visitor’s led thanks to a tenth minute goal from Ash Searle and Flooring struggled to get back into the game, the rain continued to fall making the conditions worse as the game wore on but eventually a quick fire double from Dan Parsons & Taylor Collins gave their side the lead but it took a third goal in added time to confirm their place in the final where they will take on FC Beaconsfield. After the game manager George Tomlin expressed his delight on reaching another final with the team that are folding at the end of this current season, appreciating the never say die spirit of his squad who this weekend return to FA Sunday Cup action as they travel to Redditch in search of that elusive semi-final spot the club have yet to reach.

Aylesbury had the first effort at goal on three minutes when a neat one-two saw Ty Deacon lay off to Alex Kedzierski who drove over the crossbar, but it was Emmer Green who took the lead when a corner floated in from their left by Dan Donegan was met at the front of the box by Ash Searle who flicked his header into the far corner. From there the away side enjoyed some decent possession and created a number of chances to increase their lead, a goal kick from Phil Brown sent Jordan Lovelock away down the channel where he escaped the attention of his marker but could only fire low past the front post, before a left wing cross was inches away from connecting with the head of striker Lorenzo Medford and covering defender Billy Harrison was able to turn away for a corner.

Donegan crossed from the Green right and in front of goal Medford glanced a header wide of the target, Flooring then spurned a glorious chance when Taylor Collins squared to Kedzierski twenty yards from goal but leaning back he lifted high over the top, Collins then fed Deacon inside the six-yard box and his first time shot was somehow blocked by Brown and cleared by a defender, the corner was drilled in low across the area and at the near post Dave Brown tried to back heel between his legs but could only find the side netting. The next Flooring attack broke down from which Green sent the ball downfield to Medford who battled with his marker before earning enough space to shoot from twenty yards but across goal and wide.

A very wet morning at Fairford Leys

Moments later another Aylesbury attack broke down with the ball cleared long, as home custodian Liam Smith looked to come out and clear the conditions took over and he simply couldn’t advance quick enough which allowed Medford to get there first and go for the lob over the stricken keeper, the ball looped over him, the crossbar and landed on the back of the netting much to the home sides relief, the last action saw a free kick on the Flooring right met by a mass of bodies including Brown who diverted the ball the wrong side of the near post. H/T: 0-1

Early into the second period a Ryan Freshwater cross was glanced wide by Deacon, before a corner curled into the back post found the head of the striker but he could only thump straight at Brown on the goal line, Dave Brown was then fed in on goal but in the wet conditions the ball got stuck in the mud under his feet allowing the keeper to advance and gather, at the opposite end a great ball down the middle for Medford to chase after almost saw him round Smith but the keeper managed to get the slightest of touches to take the ball off the foot of the striker.

As the rain finally started to ease Flooring attacked again as Parsons received a pass inside the box with his back to goal, shrugging off the attentions of his marker he dragged his shot wide, ahead of Taylor Collins doing well down the left and firing low across the goal mouth and wide of the back stick. The equaliser finally arrived on sixty-five minutes when Deacon threaded an inch perfect pass through the Green defence to find Parsons who with clever feet evaded one defender before steadying himself and slotting past Brown.

Dan Parsons levels for Flooring

Three minutes later the hosts took the lead when substitute Vinny Greco crossed from the right and at the back post Taylor Collins climbed above his marker to head home, and from there they never looked in any real danger of losing their grip on that lead as the confidence flowed throughout the team. Greco found Deacon inside the area with a low cross that the Aylesbury striker flicked up with one foot then launched himself acrobatically to bicycle kick over the crossbar, ahead of Parsons driving from midfield into the penalty box and curling around the far upright.

There was a scare for the home side with five minutes remaining when Donegan got in behind the defence and managed to get a shot away that had those in purple holding their breath as the ball bounced back off the post and away to the touchline for a throw, but in added time the game was sealed when Green were caught upfield and struggled to get back as Parsons in midfield fed Deacon out wide who in turn found Collins at the back of the box and he had time to pick his spot and smash home. F/T: 3-1

FA SC; AFC Jacks 3-4 Aylesbury Flooring

AFC Jacks – 3
Aylesbury Flooring – 4

(after extra-time)

20.01.2019

This game will long live in the memory of those who attended, the contingent from Aylesbury went through every possible emotion during the one hundred and twenty minutes it took to separate these two exceptionally good sides, but it was eventually their team who progressed and go through to the FA Sunday Cup quarter-finals, the only trophy to elude this club in their short existence. For the opening twenty-five minutes it looked as though Flooring had come to the end of their cup dream as their hosts raced into a two goal lead and looked dangerous every time they crossed the half way line, but a wonder strike from Alex Kedzierski just before the break gave them hope and in the second period they matched their opponents all the way until just eight minutes before the end they found their equaliser to take the tie into an additional thirty minutes. Again they fell behind early on but drew level within six minutes, then shortly into the second period Taylor Collins put his side ahead for the first time in the fixture and despite some heavy pressure they held on for a memorable win at the Aspray Arena, home of Sporting Khalsa.

The home side tore into their guests from the off, just twenty-five seconds in Gurjit Singh tore past the Flooring defence and flashed a shot across goal and wide of Liam Smith’s back post, a minute later they did take the lead when David Meese tried his luck from outside the box and it squirmed inside Smith’s left hand post. Aylesbury struggled to get to grips with their hosts in the early stages and their first two attacks saw Ollie Hogg & Ty Deacon simply play the ball straight through to Jacks custodian Gurtej Bhullar, and it took until the sixth minute for their first shot in fury when Lynton Goss found some space just inside the eighteen yard box to fire narrowly wide.

David Meese opens scoring for AFC Jacks

Jacks were denied a second by a brilliant instinctive save from Smith on nine minutes, a cross from the right saw Nathan Stone divert towards goal and somehow the keeper stuck out a hand to push the ball up onto the crossbar and the bounce took it away from danger, at the opposite end Goss fed Sean Coles in the box & with his back to goal a challenge from behind brought him down, his team mates calls for a penalty were waved away but Goss simply followed in and drove across goal and wide of the far upright, a free kick shortly after half cleared out to Dave Brown saw the midfielder volley back towards goal but Bhullar was under it all the way.

A run down the right wing from the Jacks full back saw him dispossessed and with the space behind Deacon was sent downfield, as two other defenders came across to cover he simply played inside to Goss who powered over the crossbar, followed closely by a cross that was cleared straight into the path of Brown who fired wide. From the goal kick the ball was played straight back in behind the Jacks defensive line for Deacon to chase after, from twenty yards he drove inches wide of the goal frame, at the other end a free kick floated into the Aylesbury area was flicked on and on the penalty spot Singh rose to bicycle kick wide.

Despite the play gradually beginning to level out Jacks scored again on twenty-one minutes with a simple routine, from the right Stone delivered the perfect cross into the six-yard box where all on his own Sean Williams headed into the bottom corner. Moments later it was almost three when Nicky Dodds saw a dipping drive fall inches over the crossbar, their next cross found Nicholas Turton eighteen yards out who fired back across Smith but wide of the far post, Aylesbury trying to get back into the game won a throw out on their left that was directed to Deacon inside the area, he controlled on his chest before swivelling and firing straight at the Jacks goalkeeper.

Alex Kedzierski pulls a goal back just before half time

With five minutes of the half remaining the breakthrough came for the visitor’s, a corner swung in by Mitchell Collins was headed back out to the defender on the flank, he pulled back across midfield to Kedzierski some twenty-five yards from goal whose first time effort flew into the top corner. The goal lifted Flooring and a Hogg free kick some twenty yards out was curled around the wall but straight into Bhullar’s hands, there was still time for Mitchell Collins to push forward down the flank and unleash a low drive that the keeper had to get both hands on to stun and gather at the second attempt. H/T: 2-1

The second half started slowly and took over ten minutes for a shot at goal, a Jacks free kick curled over the top by Singh ahead of Dodd getting down the wing and fizzing the ball across the six yard box which saw Turton throw himself at it but missing by inches, he ended up in the back of the net whilst his target rolled away for a throw in. Aylesbury then won a free kick which Mitchell Collins curled towards the bottom corner forcing the keeper down low to save and as he parried it a mass of bodies rushed in but the referee blew for a foul, from the off Dodds again got down the right and into the box where his cross caused panic in the Flooring defence, it was eventually sliced back to the defender who smashed across the crowded box and wide.

Back came the Buckinghamshire side, a clearance found Mitchell Collins out wide who advanced before dragging his shot wide of goal, Deacon was next to shoot from eighteen yards trying to curl inside the back post but clearing it by just a yard, and a long distance free kick from Hogg sailed high over the crossbar. Chances still came along and with seven minutes left Goss found some room out on the left to get forward but pulled his effort wide of the front post, then just sixty seconds later they got their reward when excellent work by Goss saw him get to the byline and smash across the six-yard area where Deacon got enough of a touch to turn it in to spark wild celebration.

Ty Deacon levels the game

Injuries & cramp started to delay the final proceedings but eventually the away side won another corner which Hogg curled in and despite several bodies attacking it, it sailed out for a goal kick whilst the last action saw the home side throwing the ball into the box where Smith came out and climbed highest to gather with both hands. F/T: 2-2

Seconds in extra time Deacon centred a great cross which Brown met a full stretch but with no conviction it looped up onto the top of the netting, but then three minutes in Jacks retook the lead when a simple throw on their right was sent long and the cross met at the near post by substitute Kieron Miller who side footed home. Flooring refused to be floored once again, straight back at the other end Kedzierski absolutely thumped at goal where a last gasp outstretched boot diverted for a corner just as it seemed destined for the back of the net, and just five minutes after falling behind they levelled once more.

A free kick out on their left was angled in by Goss inch perfect to the head of Jordan Jenkins who was never going to miss from close range, and again the Aylesbury tails were up. Legs were tiring at this stage and full credit to both sides who never gave up, testament to a great game of football despite the majority having played less than twenty-four hours previously for their Saturday sides, a free kick some twenty-five yards out saw Kedzierski clear the defence but not Bhullar, the final action saw a Jacks attack break down and Goss come away with the ball, driving at the defence he unselfishly slipped a pass through for Deacon but a raised flag halted the play. H/T: 3-3

The hosts attacked from the off for the final fifteen minutes knocking long up to Lawley on the edge of the box but he wildly smashed over the top, a Flooring cross was headed out and met on the volley by Kedzierski and initially it looked to be flying over until a late dip saw the keeper having to jump and gather underneath his own crossbar. Three minutes in came the goal to put the visitor’s into the lead for the first time in the fixture, a cross into the hosts box saw Ben Seaton sandwiched between two defenders but the ball bounced down in front of Taylor Collins who lifted over the committed Bhullar into the bottom corner.

Taylor Collins scores fourth goal

Goss almost sealed the game within a minute of taking the lead, played down the channel he left his marker behind but the keeper advanced and the strikers low drive was brilliantly saved and eventually cleared, the follow up from Kedzierski again goal bound before a deflection took it away to safety. Jacks pushed for an equaliser of their own and put some real pressure on their guests in the final stages, a huge throw into the box found Meese on the twelve yard spot where he turned but could only side foot over the top, their next throw again launched like a missile into the box where Smith powered his way through a mass of bodies to claim.

Another long throw found Singh inside the six yard box where he managed to work the slightest amount of space and attempted to arrow his header into the opposite corner but only succeeded in clearing the woodwork, in the dying seconds Deacon was sent away on goal on his own and from the edge of the area he tried to lob the keeper who brilliantly got himself up to save with both hands, as he went to kick long the final whistle blew on a pulsating cup tie. Flooring now face another away trip to Black Horse (Redditch) in the quarter-finals on the seventeenth of February. F/T: 3-4

SSMFL D1: Coles looking for Winslow to bounce back as Lions visit + Flooring flying!

Sports Shots caught up with Winslow United’s Sean Coles after the forward’s brace earned his side a point at Risborough Rangers last weekend.

Sean Coles

United had been 1-3 down before Coles late equaliser after a Ryan Freshwater penalty earned Paul Alleyne’s side a share of the spoils.

Coles commented:

It was good to come away with a point, being 3-1 down, and having 10 men. The team dug deep and managed to grab a point and we didn’t give up.

United return to Elmfields gate tomorrow for a league encounter.

London Lions will be a tough game, they are a good footballing side but on our day we can beat anyone.

Coles and his team mates have been working hard ahead of the game.

We have been in training because our recent performances haven’t been good enough, so we need to put that right on Saturday.

As well as United fighting at the top, Coles also has some big games on the horizon with Aylesbury Flooring.

Our (Winslow) main focus is the league, but it is always good to win a cup.

My next three games for Flooring are massive and we have a good side going into the games and we are flying.

FASC; Leighton Madrid 0-7 Aylesbury Flooring FC

Flooring eased into the last sixteen of the FA Sunday Cup with a seven-nil win over Leighton Madrid last Sunday afternoon.

Flooring dominated from the first minute and deservedly took the lead twenty minutes in, Sean Coles smashing home. The lead was quickly doubled, Ty Deacon on hand to finish from a corner,  Alex Kedzierski rifled a penalty after Lynton Goss caused havoc in the Leighton defence, and Ollie Hogg made it 4 just before half time with Leighton in disarray.

Mitchell Collins

The second half continued in the same manner but it wasn’t until Mitchell Collins decided to do things by himself with two wonderful individual goals sandwiched between Deacon getting his second after a classy flick from Daniel Parsons.

The reward for the win is a 4th round tie away to AFC Jacks from Wolverhampton on Sunday 20th January with a 1.00pm kick-off.
