Friendly game

Weybridge Town 4 - Chertsey Old Salesians 2

Chap count - 14 + 2 players daughters

Feisty KT derby with the young, cocky hipsters of Weybridge the better footballing side and playing at higher level finding the old lags of Chertsey a lot harder proposition than they thought they world be before the game.
Played on Astro turf at Winston Churchill school in Woking and far better texture and consistency than any other similar surface I played on over the years.
Weybridge a very decent footballing side with a couple of very handy midfielders but full of whingers who gave the impression that the other side wasn’t allowed to challenge them and that every decision should go to the better side.
3 -0 to the good at half time with two cracking, fierce strokes from the edge of the box that both went in off the underside of the bar.
Chertsey were nowhere near 0-3 worse and they scored from the restart after less than 15 seconds and then 2 minutes later it was 3-2.

The pretty footballing side had 15 minutes of madness when they imploded and resorted to calling ref both linos cheats while bickering among themselves. They then decided to start matching their opponents robust strategy but weren’t anywhere near as good at it and lots of afters off the ball that they came off second best at so resorted to calling the oppo thugs and pikeys, in all honesty a little truth in that.
The Chertsey Ruffians pushed up and threw everything at Weybridge including a few clumps but to no avail and a long clearance from the keeper saw the KT13 centre forward race clear of the Chertsey defender and beat the keeper to seal the win.
Exciting, edgy game that made me want to turn the clock back and be back in the 80’s and involved in a full blooded , competitive match.

Saturday 4 September
AFC Whyteleafe 1-0 Earslfield 1889
Surrey South Eastern Combination
Admission - free (voluntary donation)
Attendance - 308
Away - 0
Chap count - 20ish
Programme - “sold out” upon my arrival

A few months back Ian Rush-fronted Singapore group Irama Sports purchased Whyteleafe’s Church Road ground after the previous owner - which was linked to the Leafe Chairman - went into administration. Shortly thereafter the entire playing and coaching staff left. Whyteleafe were unable to reach an agreement with the new landlords and withdraw from Isthmian South Div 1 and like that 70-odd years of history was gone.

Only about three weeks ago a new phoenix club, AFC Whyteleafe, sprung up with funding from a local tech entrepreneur. In double quick time they’ve been able to cobble together a squad and coaching staff and agree a four-year lease on Church Road.

So today men’s first team football returned to Whyteleafe albeit at Step 8 - four divisions lower than they where they were.

Despite having promised Mrs GB a football free Saturday, I said I might wander down to catch the first 20 minutes.

This is not far off park level football so the players were visibly taken aback by the size of the crowd. Whyteleafe’s average attendance over the last few years has been around 150 so even the organisers weren’t expecting a crowd this big. The alcohol licence hasn’t yet been renewed so it was BYOB which the bulk of the crowd did.

Whyteleafe, playing what looked like an old school 2-3-5, started the brighter before Earlsfield started exploiting the lack of defence only to be met by a string of fine saves.

With the score 0-0 at half-time and every one having a very merry time, Mrs GB called to say her and the kids were sat in the car outside the ground and I should make my way there immediately as we needed to quickly go shopping for various school related bits. I suggested that since I was already there I may as well stay for the second half and the shops would be shut soon anyway. This was met with a less than favourable response and I trudged out.

Whyteleafe scored midway through the second half to win their inaugural outing 1-0.

An interesting aside to the above: Im on a WhatsApp group for various parties interested in the new club whether they be fans, volunteers etc.

Upon joining I noticed a rather vocal chap on the group called Murray Jones. It can’t be, I thought.

It is.

Spelthorne sports 1 - 1 Bedfont sports
Sat 4/8/2021 - Staines Rd West, Sunbury

FA Cup prelim game
Adult £7
Senior £4
Under 12 free
Over 12 £1
Attendance- I’m not rain man but 4 times as many as I’ve seen there before maybe 300.
raffle ticket £1
no program purchased.
Shed bar not visited nor club house. (Have to leave ground and go to club house for toilets)
didn’t buy tea but last time £1.

A bit of everything, players chatting to crowd, player playing with Injury for 20 min before deciding he can’t go on. 2 sending offs one from each side. A penalty saved. And plenty of endeavour Bedfont did look the most powerful team on the day.

And only took 10 min to drive there park up and get to the touch line.

And for those that like a straight bat, there was also a cricket match going on.

Papa John's Trophy, basically League 2 clubs fight it out with League One and Premier League academies. Good game but Away GK had a torrid game, aswell as being pelted with abuse from home fans, Town's second was a Hogg-Deeney reenactment

Hold on Nick he's not Dale Winton. Quite possible if Jimmy is going to Harrogate he has no idea what a TW8 casual looks like. He's probably all wax jacket and expensive wellies and drives a land rover.......maybe with a whippet and shot gun in the back. So tread carefully my friend.

😂😂😂Of course I know what a TW8 casual looks like! Harrogate is actually a lot less posh as people think, just coz we have a few mansions, everyone thinks we are all posh. Mainly 'roadmen' in all black and air max's

didn’t have the time, was driving down from Tooting having dropped off younger daughter (and all her “stuff”) at her new house share. Very relieved that Radio 5 weren’t going to Molineux for goal updates whilst i was on the A24!

Totally off topic but I got barred from the Myllet Arms (on the A40 near where Henly's Rolls Royce garage used to be) back in the '80s - for 'wearing a leather biker jacket' but minding my own business on the Asteroids machine

FAI CUP – Quarter Final : St Pats 3 - Wexford FC 0

Admission : Adult € 15 & Child € 5

Programme : € 5

Refreshment : Hotdog € 5 – Chips € 5 – Bottle of Fanta € 2.50

Attendance : League of Ireland clubs never publish the match attendance, at a guess, approx. 2000 in the ground, with around 50 away fans.

Chap Count : Some ‘moody’ Pats fans in the shed end, away fan chap count = 0

Drums : One – Wexford fan hitting it as if the ghost of Keith Moon had possessed him.

Sat in the main stand with my youngest boy, Wexford fans were allowed to sit amongst the St Pat supporters, all good natured banter.
Only negative was the Wexford fan sitting 4 rows down banging his drum and chanting ‘WEXFORD !’.
The poor St Pats fan sitting behind him, the Pats fan must have been in his 60’s and was sitting crossed armed and with a face like thunder, which got progressively angrier with every drum hit.

St Pats were down to 10 men after 7 minutes but took the lead after 34 mins . At this point the ref had completely lost control of the players and ended up having to send off a Wexford player just before half time.
Second half was cracker, proper cup game and despite Wexford putting in a brave display , St Pats ran out 3-0 winners, with my boy and his school friend celebrating the last minute Pen by taking off their jackets and swinging them around their heads in true ‘Ultra’ style.

Special mention to Chris Forrester (ex Peterborough United captain) who was head and shoulders the best player on the pitch and far too good for the League of Ireland.

England Scotland Euro 96 we were driving down to North Devon for a weeks holiday. Had to turn the radio off once Seaman saved the pen otherwise I was going to crash the car. Dad phoned me to enthuse over the Gazzz goal during the drive which I'd neither heard nor seen!

Had a similar experience, driving my son down to Southampton, had talkSPORT and the sat nav on the go.
Got a bit hairy when Shandon got sent off, but I needn't have worried.

Hampton and Richmond Borough 3-1 Wimborne Town
FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round

£14 admission

£3 for two cheese burgers (think I only got charged for 1)

Attendance: 394 (about 30 or so Wimborne, incl 1 chap looking, and 3 very impressive flags)

Pissed down all game, blowing a gale.

Hampton pretty much dominated the first 70 or so minutes.

First Half the home side seemed afraid to shoot, although they did hit the post, Wimborne had a decent spell at the end of the first half winning 3 or 4 corners in quick succession.
Hampton were awarded a penalty, and scored it, just, after 47 minutes, and should have been given another for handball then added two more, one after a good save and the other after a massive scramble.
Wimborne scored a consolation with about 15 minutes to go and may have got another, but for a great save from Alan Julian, making his 600th career appearance.

FAI Under 15 Cup Match : Larkview FC 0 - 6 Killegland AFC
Admission : Free
Programme : N/A
Refreshment : Bring your own
Attendance : Approx. 30 parents in attendance
Chap Count : Zero. There were two ‘moody’ looking Staffordshire Terrier’s looking on from the touchline though.

Went to cheer on the boy’s team (Larkview) as they played a FAI cup match against Killegland FC, who currently sit top of the league above Larkview.
Quite clear from the first 5 minutes that we wouldn’t be witnessing a historic cup victory, as Killegland showed why they were a league above.
Killegland’s number 7 was a little live wire of a player, and my suggestion that their number 7 gets taken out was quite rightly ignored by the coaches.

A goal kick from Harrow Borough FC
“Are you going to football tomorrow? She asked.
“Yes.” I replied, needing no further invitation.
Now, where to go? = Sutton, would be my 95th League Ground..

Saturday 9 October 2021
League 2
Sutton Utd 4-3 Port Vale. Att. 3905.
(SU finding their feet at home, and PV on a run of 6 consecutive wins)
Admission £13 (old git’s concession - printed at home)
Programme £3. Catering/refreshments- N/A. Never saw any, and everyone around me seemed to have brought their own. Massive queue for the toilets though.
New pitch looked great, complete with pop-up sprinklers. I gather the away seats are new this season too, a grandiose gazebo for about 100 souls. Not out of place amongst the mish-mash of small stands, and bits of covered terracing. PV end looked pretty much fully sold out, and they were in good voice throughout.
The site is circular, and gives the impression of having had a running track or, (perhaps less likely) greyhounds around the pitch in the past.
A lovely sunny autumn afternoon, and I positioned myself by a corner flag,
letting the crowd mass behind me.
A thoroughly entertaining game, and PV have a classy squad for L2, and on this viewing have a chance for promotion. SU have heart, some skills, and stickability. Despite trailing 0-2 and 2-3 they managed to win at the death, having led for couple of minutes in total!
Surprised to see it was the lead game on Quest’s highlights, with Colin Murray and Dean Ashton on site. Sure enough, there I am on the telly again..
My lifelong aim of mediocrity and anonymity is being sorely tested this season.

So I was told by 2 visiting Germans (+ cans) on the train. (They’d already seen BEES and Foolham on this visit.)
It’s not the first time either, it does seem perverse to have so little footie in London in an International Break. In previous seasons I’ve been as far as Wycombe and Charlton for my fix.
I guess it does explain Colin Murray’s attendance, seeing as he did ‘Fighting Talk’ on R5 on Saturday morning. We both arrived ok…

Tuesday 12 October

England 1-1 Hungary
Attendance: Just under 70,000
Ticket: £20
Food and drink: Queues too long, didn’t buy
Programme: Don’t know
Chap count: Fair to high

Left the office at 5.15 and was outside the Volunteer in Baker Street by 5.40 for a nice couple of pints of Neck Oil (at a very reasonable price compared to the likes of The Globe (spit)). Then onto Marylebone for one in there before catching the 7.03 to Wembley Stadium Station.

That was as good as it got as the game was utter dirge. Hungary made life difficult but this was the worst I’ve seen England play in a long time. No creative spark except for Grealish who was inexplicably taken off midway through the second half as Southgate changed system. Best moment was easily seeing Ollie come on.

The only entertainment came from the Hungary section where the cops moved in to make an arrest following a disturbance after England players took the knee. Incredibly, the OB got completely battered and made a hasty retreat onto the concourse and were not seen again for the rest of the night, leaving only a thin piece of netting separating the black shirted ultras from the England family section.

Another Wembley cock-up for the Met.


There aren’t many games I go to where I come away thinking I hadn’t bothered but this was one. Saving grace was being home from Wembley in under two hours.
