West Bridgford Lions 1, Nottingham City 4

This was a thrilling encounter between two teams that have the utmost respect for each other. Nott’m City opened up the scoring with a fine free quick from Manneh. The Lions levelled the score with a well taken goal. Before half time Nott’m City went ahead with a goal from Lorin to end the first half 2-1 to Nott’m City. The second half was another good encounter but Nott’m city scored a third with a goal from John. Lorin got his brace with a well taken goal to put Nott’m City 4-1 ahead and that’s how the game ended. Both teams should be congratulated on the fantastic manner and spirit in which they conducted themselves on the pitch and it was an enjoyable game of football to watch.

Hucknall Sports Red 1, Quarrydale Utd 3

Hucknall Sports Red had the opportunity to be joint leaders when they entertained Quarrydale Utd but went down 3-1. Ben Harvey gave Sports a first half lead but goals from Connor Ward, Owen Adkin and Harry Ashley turned the game in favour of the visitors.

Under 16 Division 2

Arnold Town Yellow 3, Bottesford 0

Bottesford travelled to top of the table Arnold Town, looking to put in a good performance with only a bare 11. Arnold had the wind with them and began well with some neat passing football and took the lead midway through the first half. Bottesford nearly equalised 5 minutes later when Aidan Smiths 25 yard shot hit the cross bar. Second half Bottesford looked to take advantage of the wind but couldn’t quite break down a well organised Arnold team and they scored a second. Bottesford’s Aaron Charlesworth in goal pulled off some excellent saves to keep the score down but couldn’t prevent Arnold’s third and final goal. Arnold’s scorers were Matthew Bennett, Athanasi Georgiou and Tom Kirk.

Attenborough Colts 6, Newark Town 1

Competitive first half with Colts having the better of the early chances with goals from Ben Floyd and Sam Lankester.  Newark battled back strongly and scored just before the half time whistle through Sam Graves.  Attenborough converted more of their opportunities in the second half with Sam adding a second and Tom Rigby scoring 3 goals completing his hat trick in the 79th minute.

Hucknall Warriors 4, Ravenshead Reds 1

Hucknall Warriors secured the double over Ravenshead with a convincing victory that saw the home team return to winning ways. Warriors were in front in the opening two minutes Darnel Beeson converting from short range. The lead was then doubled, Ryan Walton’s shot from the right beating the goalkeeper as the wind carried it high into the roof of the net. Ravenshead pulled a goal back midway through the half before on thirty four minutes Mitchel Palmer took advantage of an error to shoot into an open goal. HT 3-1. The wind now in the visitors favour saw them come close on several occasions, twice hitting the woodwork but unlike previous games this season Warriors defended resolutely with captain Connor Smith leading by example and were able to see the game out. Man of the match Leeroy Masamba was outstanding in midfield in an excellent all round team performance. Warriors added a further goal in the last two minutes of the game Palmer adding his second with a well taken corner.

Sandiacre Town 0, Edwalton Cavaliers White 1

A very evenly balanced match with not many chances and the sides only separated by the one goal. Both goalies played their part in keeping it this way as well as the defences and it was no surprise for Edwalton that any of their back three could have taken the MOTM nomination which went to Alfie Willis. The only goal came mid-way through the first half after neat interplay on the ground between Harry Thompson and Josh Till lead to Harry Thompson putting Josh in to score low what eventually turned out to be the winning goal. Sandiacre created chances of their own in both halves but Edwalton rode their luck a couple of times and were saved on a couple of occasions by their stand in keeper Ben Peirce playing for them for the first time at this level who did a great job and was a close call on the MOTM nomination. Edwalton just about had enough to keep Sandiacre at arm’s length given that they had no subs. A few tweaks to the personnel deployed late in the game released the energy required to see out the game. All three defenders were superb in front of the new goalie, with Dexter Lacey helping out a lot in the first half, as too were the two CDMs Harry Thompson and Joe Munn who broke things up all over the pitch and weighed in with a few chances themselves. A low scoring game but some good football on show and a well worked goal to take the points.

Under 16 Division 3

Radcliffe Olympic 5, Lowdham Colts Black 1

An early return fixture between these two sides saw the wind play not an insignificant part, at least in the first half.  Opening forays in the first quarter were well-balanced with fine through-balls from Tommy Shine and Edward Roberts for Lowdham and from Aedan Lawton and Rhys Trussler for Radcliffe being stopped by their respective opposing ‘keepers.  Whilst there is no doubt that the bravery shown in the first half by Dylan Lee as the visiting goalkeeper contributed to his well-earned MoM award, he was unable to stop goals from a first-half goalmouth scramble (Oliver Creswell) and a beautifully-flighted if wind-assisted free kick from 35 yards by Lewis Seyfert.   In the second half, Lee was substituted by Jacob Turner who clearly enjoyed being in goal but which led to occasional heart-stopping moments as the ball slipped through gloves and disappeared through his legs forcing sharp evasive action by himself and his defenders, not least Louis Clark.  The home side assumed a dominance for the first 20 minutes or so claiming two further well-taken goals before the visitors decided that they should adopt a shoot-on-sight policy.  It seemed to work, resulting in a terrific 30-yard dipping drive from Matthew Edinborough to which the Radcliffe ‘keeper had no answer.  Lee rejoined the game as an outfield player and set up a series of attacks from Lowdham notably from Joshua McCourt but all were insufficient to prevent a fifth and final goal from Radcliffe who rightly claimed the spoils.

Toton Tigers 2, Gedling Southbank 3

Goals by Euan Hewes and Oliver Lamplough gave Toton Tigers a 2-1first half lead against Gedling Southbank. The visitors rallied after the break and went on to win -2 as Ewan Holmes finished with two goals and Tyler Cobb got one.

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Yellow 2, Long Bennington 2

It was honours even as Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Yellow drew 2-2 with Long Bennington. The hosts scored through Dior Jennings and Josh Wallis whilst Owen Rowley and Jamie Staunton were on target for the visitors.

AFC Mansfield 2, Farndon Colts 2

AFC Mansfield and Farndon Colts shared the spoils as they scored two goals each. The hosts started on the front foot scoring first. Farndon equalised from a corner which went straight in. Two penalties made it 2-2. A great game supported by a competent ref. Liam Carter and Ben Scott scored for AFC Mansfield, Tom Sheppard and Max Lockwood got the goals for Farndon.

Kimberley MW Trojans 3, Holy Spirit Celtic 0

Kimberley MW Trojans got their first points of the season with a 3-0 defeat of Holy Spirit Celtic. Lucas Lewis netted twice with Josh Kremmos getting one goal.

Under 16 Division 2

Newark Town 2, Sandiacre Town 2

2nd played 3rd as Newark Town FC welcomed Sandiacre to Devon Park before they go on the road for 6 away games on the spin. Newark went 1-0 down. Sam Graves scored to tie the game at 1-1. Neither team came out on top before the break. 2nd half and it was the same as the 1st both teams sharing possession and the ball was played over the top to which Newarks keeper Shaun Eaglestone came rushing out but was a little late to the ball. Sandiacre had a free kick wide left. The ball came to the back post and Shaun saved a certain goal however it had fallen kindly to the Sandiacre player to score the rebound. Newark kept up their work rate and equalised with 15 to go. All the lads put in a shift but standout performance came from Newark Towns left back Jak Winter getting himself m.o.m

Edwalton Cavaliers White 2, Hucknall Warriors 2

A fairly evenly balanced game borne out by the score in each half 0-0 in the 1st and 2-2 in the 2nd and the 2 goals scored in the first 10 minutes of the 2nd Half by one team and the corresponding amount scored by the other in the last 10 minutes of the half. The Edwalton Cavaliers players felt a bit aggrieved at the end after hitting the bar and the post 4 times during the game but can count themselves lucky to get themselves back into the match right at the end. More on target shots might have led to a different outcome. The Hucknall Warriors players were also probably aggrieved at the end in the way the scoreline changed in those last few minutes. A lot of the play in the first half was in the Hucknall Warriors half though with several near misses from Edwalton courtesy of the bar and the post but Hucknall had their chances too and with no goals scored the half ended. At the start of the 2nd Half the Hucknall players went for it and were 1-0 up inside a few minutes after some indecision in the Edwalton defence allowing a good shot from distance which beat the Edwalton keeper. A few minutes later a similar situation arose in the Edwalton defence following a Hucknall throw in and the ball was in the net to give Hucknall a 2 goal lead. Edwalton awoke from their self-induced slumber and started to try and work the ball more and after a couple of player and formation changes were finally able to break through the middle after a good ball from Max Wilkinson set Josh Till up for a run through on the Hucknall goalie who he was able to beat with a well taken shot. With less than 5 minutes left Jamie Thompson set Max Wilkinson up in a very similar way and he scored as he advanced on the Hucknall goal ahead of their defenders. The last few minutes were a bit frantic but neither side was able to break the deadlock and the game finished as evenly as it had started.

Bottesford 0, Rolls Royce Leisure 2

Bottesford finally got their season under way at home to Rolls. Bottesford started well, creating a few half chances, but it was Rolls who took the lead when a cross wasn’t dealt with and sloppy marking allowed them to slot the ball into the net. Second half saw Rolls start brightly creating a few good chances. Bottesford started to get back into the game with Cooper and Fedorson going close, but it was Rolls who got the second goal with a good header, but yet again poor marking to allow it. Rolls’ scorers were Kai Boultby and Owen Hall.

Under 16 Division 3

Farndon Colts 2, Radcliffe Olympic 1

Max Lockwood opened the scoring for Farndon on 29 minutes and scored his second nine minutes from the end. Niall Mills scored for Radcliffe who, despite their efforts, were unable to find an equaliser.

Nottingham City 5, West Bridgford Trojans 1

The second half Nott’m City turned on the pressure with goals from Rhule to get his brace, Jahrel Maitland, Yosif Lorin, and Yusupha John. The Trojans pulled one back through Henry Ennals and the game ended 5-1 to Nott’m City.

West Bridgford Lions 0, Quarrydale Utd 10

This was Quarrydale’s third game with this new team and it just clicked. It started slow but when the first goal went in the pressure was lifted and then the goals and football started to happen constant pressure and quality from this Quarrydale side. The scorers were George Cartwright (4), Josh Gentry (3), Reece Beckett, Josh Jackson and  Connor Ward.

Under 16 Division 2

Arnold Town Yellow 2, Ravenshead Reds 1

The first half was dominated by Arnold Town with the centre midfield trio for Arnold dictating the game. Tyler Cook opened the scoring after a set piece caused chaos in the Ravenshead box. Ellis Hatton then doubled Arnold’s lead with a neat finish from a tight angle. The second saw Ravenshead enjoy the better of the play and they were rewarded midway through the second period with a good goal scored on the counter following an Arnold corner. Arnold battled well to hold on for the win with the impressive Athanasi Georgiou starring in midfield for man of the match

Hucknall Warriors Red 1, Sandiacre Town 2

Sandiacre Town made it two wins in three matches with a 2-1 victory at Hucknall Warriors. Curtis Rigley scored for warriors, Sandiacre’s scorers were Cameron Shepherd and Marcus Verney.

Gonerby 4, Edwalton Cavaliers White 5

On a warm and sunny September afternoon it was a very up and down match with the scoreline changing constantly and 9 goals spread – as evenly as 9 can be, throughout the game. Edwalton took an early lead after a great run by Josh Till resulted in a simple header for Joe Munn but after a 10 minute spell Edwalton took their foot off the gas and Gonerby exerted more pressure on the Edwalton defence resulting in a run down the right touchline and a quickly taken goal to equalise.Ten minutes later Joe Munn returned the favour to Josh Till from the other corner and Edwalton were ahead but only just. Within minutes a long through ball from Gonerby resulted in a goal when two forwards competed for the ball with the out rushing Edwalton keeper who narrowly missed out but was clattered in the process. The goal stood and the scores remained level until the last few minutes of the half when Ben Antcliff despatched a free kick the length of one half just under the bar and into the goal – not a complete fluke as he finished the season with a similar effort but unfortunately hit the bar that time. A minute or two later Jamie Thompson, down the left hand side for Edwalton, despatched a low shot – or was it a cross? – which sneaked in between defenders and attackers alike and into the goal to finish the half 4-2 in favour of the away side. The second half started in a similar fashion with a very early goal but this time it was Gonerby getting themselves back into the game with a long distance shot that bounced around the area close to the goal and was finished off to bring the score back to 3-4. Ten minutes later Edwalton were awarded a penalty after a trip on Harry Thompson after a long run down the left hand side but the penalty was missed and the scores remained the same until a long pass from Ben Danzey released Josh till down the inside right channel. He controlled the ball and headed into the penalty box beating the keeper to put Edwalton into a 5-3 lead after being unlucky in a similar situation a few minutes earlier when judged to be offside. There was a late flurry from Gonerby with a fourth goal from the edge of the penalty box after a previous attack had broken down and Edwalton had failed to clear. The last 5 minutes were fairly frantic but there were no further goal and the score remained 4-5. Gonerby’s scorers were Alex Jefferson (2), Ben Bramley and Michael Coates.

Under 16 Division 3

Kimberley MW Trojans 2, Farndon Colts 12

The two teams met on Kimberley MW FCs superb first team pitch at the Stag Ground. The game started heavily in Farndon’s, favour, with them racing into a 4-0 lead inside 20 minutes, with goals from James Loach and Connor Jackson and two from Max Lockwood. However, Kimberley kept their minds on the job in hand and when Farndon took their collective feet of the gas, they took full advantage with Lewis Brough and Josh Kremmos hitting two superbly struck goals, including an absolute howitzer of a shot from outside the penalty area that dipped under the bar. Farndon were clearly shocked by this and had to re-build their defensive barricade. They were lucky enough for Lockwood to nick another goal just before half time to go into the break 5-2 ahead. In the second half, Farndon came out looking like an entirely different team to the first half. They made full use of the superb playing surface and started moving the ball around much more quickly, giving Kimberley little chance to pick up the ball. Lockwood hit a second hat-trick in the first 10 minutes of the half, followed another from Connor Jackson and two from James Scott in the last five minutes either side of one from Jake Brown. The Kimberley players should be given credit as their heads didn’t drop until the last 5 minutes and they continued to press and harry the Farndon players.

Linby CW Youth 1, Toton Tigers 3

A Euan Hewes brace and one by Matthew Hyde gave Toton Tigers a 3-1 win at Linby CW Youth. Lewis Simpson replied for the home team.

Lowdham Colts Black 3, Holy Spirit Celtic 0

A cloudy but mild morning at the Magna Meadows ground in Lowdham was the setting for this match between two sides who hadn’t enjoyed the best of starts to their respective seasons.  The first half was very evenly balanced with the visitors probably having the most threatening attacks but neither side made a breakthrough.  The second half was somewhat different with Lowdham having changed formation from 3-something-1 to a more traditional 4-4-2.  Also, the Lowdham ‘keeper, Dylan Lee, who had injured a hand, was replaced by Jacob Turner.  Almost from the restart, the home side began to command the midfield and set up some more telling attacks.  A clearance through the middle from Justin Kelley onto Joshua McCourt found the head of Matty Edinborough who managed to guide it to Jake Tomlinson just outside the penalty area who spun to avoid using his left foot and guided the ball wide of the keeper with a very balanced shot to take the lead.  Five minutes later, a midfield onslaught from Lowdham found Louis Clark in space who left the visiting ‘keeper flat-footed and chipped it into the opposing corner of the net to double the lead.  Shortly after, some excellent play along the right wing saw Edward Roberts run to the byeline and send in a fierce, low cross which was pounced on by Dylan Lee, who had revisited play as a substitute in the outfield and who determinedly fired the ball home past his opposite number to take the score to 3-0.    Even though there were some individual battles, to which the referee had occasion to bring calm, the game was played in excellent spirit.  It was no coincidence that Lowdham’s MoM award went to Finlay Bennett who was outstanding in defence and thwarted the bulk of attacks from Holy Spirit from the right and centre.

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Yellow 1, Gedling Southbank 1

A very even game between two good passing teams. Wollaton was by far the better team in the first half & dominated the midfield taking the lead on 20 minutes through Josh Wallis.

The second half was much more even event, with Gedling changing personnel & formation to try to break down Wollaton and with only eight minutes remaining Gedling managed to bundle the ball over the line for a deserved point, Ewan Holmes being the scorer. A close game played with a lot of spirit.

Radcliffe Olympic 2, Long Bennington 1

Owen Rowley gave Long Bennington a first half lead at Radcliffe Olympic who rallied after the break to turn the game in their favour with goals from Niall Mills and Lewis Seyfert.

The game was dominated by Nottm City pressing forward. A number of goal scoring opportunities were squandered before the opening goal came from Amyda Wenazo, the second goal came from a set play with a well taken strike from Kaide Henry to put Nottm City 2-0 up by half time. A few minutes into the second half substitute Kane Khalfan added a third. Nott’m City had further chances to go ahead but it was Beeston that scored through George McPherson-Davis to make it 3-1.

Alfie Gaynor and Harry Pownall were Attenborough’s other scorers.

Edwalton Cavaliers White 2, Arnold Town Yellow 1

Following a first half in which heroics from Ali Polkey in the Arnold goal kept the scores level at the break, Edwalton capitalised on a lacklustre performance with two second half goals from Joe Munn and James Thompson which ultimately settled the game. A late rally and a goal from Matthew Bennett for Arnold threatened to steal a result but Edwalton held on for all three points.

Under 16 Division 3

Farndon Colts 6, Lowdham Colts Black 1

Farndon came out of the blocks slowly against a Lowdham side who were determined to keep pushing forward and who forced Farndon into playing route one football in the first half. It did result in a goal for Max Lockwood to send Farndon into the break 1-0 up but Lowdham’s goalkeeper had pulled off some great saves and had been first to everything that came into his area. A re-shuffle for Farndon at half time resulted in them coming out of the blocks playing their more usual passing game and pinning Lowdham back into their own half for long periods. Lowdham defended stoutly but couldn’t keep hold of Lockwood who scored on 41 minutes and hit his hat-trick 5 minutes later. James Scott made it 4-0 on 53 minutes before Lowdham hit back with a howitzer of a free kick from Jake Tomlinson that was from 30 yards out. On 65 minutes, though Tom Shephard restored Farndon’s 4 goal lead and James Scott rounded off the scoring on 70 minutes before the game petered out into a battle of midfield possession for the last 10 minutes.This was a good competitive game and a credit to both teams.

The best team won which was the team that took their chances from the audacious flick to start things off 15 minutes into the game right through to the last near post header 10 minutes from the end. Edwalton responded eventually but it was too late to make a dent in the score line which seemed harsh given the number opportunities created especially in the second half. The fact that it took Edwalton a while to score was as a result of some great saves by the Rolls Royce keeper and that Rolls Royce didn’t score any more was most definitely down to the Edwalton keeper who was named MOTM for the away side. Rolls’ scorers were Elliot Heard (2), Mitchell West (2), Owen Hall and Callum Thompson. Josh Till scored a consolation goals for Edwalton.

After a very damp morning, the evening started dry and warm for an 18.30 kick-off but with thick cloud above the large pitch at Magna Meadows in Lowdham, the referee and teams agreed to play 35 minutes per half as the supply of night-vision goggles was limited. It was unclear whether preparations for the home side’s opening fixture of the season had been affected by the holiday period although the normal snooker table surface of this ground only covered three-quarters of the pitch, the remainder of the western turf being available for grazing. It was also encouraging to see the ground staff working outside normal hours, marking the lines in front of goal when play allowed. This was the opening fixture for the home side whilst the visitors had already played theirs a few days earlier and the opening quarter perhaps reflected this. Radcliffe were spending a lot of time in the Lowdham half but a flurry of long-range shots initially did little to trouble the home ‘keeper, Dylan Lee. Equally, any loose balls entering Lowdham’s back quarter were capably mopped up by a resolute defence marshalled by energetic Justin Kelley (MoM) and a hard-working midfield. Suddenly, a high, looping ball from Ben James on Radcliffe’s left was out of reach for Lee allowing the visitors to take a 1-0 lead. This seemed to galvanise the home team who launched a series of sweeping attacks through the centre as well as from both wings. A determined run almost from the halfway line saw captain Jacob Turner level the scores by fending off the attention of three Radcliffe central midfielders before unleashing a fearsome, dipping shot with his right foot from 25 yards that would have been beyond the reach of most goalkeepers. Five minutes later, an attack on the left flank fed Joshua McCourt who powered through to release a dipping, left-footed shot from 20 yards that was a near mirror-image of his captain’s and again left the Radcliffe ‘keeper with no chance. The half-time score of 2-1 was maintained for the next quarter with both sides creating pressure. A rare mistake by Turner from a Radcliffe corner saw him make amends for his earlier terrific goal by powering the ball into his own net to level the scores. Although Lowdham now created repeated waves of attack, particularly from the right wing using Jake Tomlinson, a clearance from the Radcliffe defence beyond halfway found Archie Remnant who burst with acceleration into the Lowdham area and slotted home past Lee. In view of the continued pressure from the home side for the last ten minutes, it seemed inevitable that a leveller would be scored in this breathless onslaught but it was not to be. A great match for players and spectators alike – if the shrieks were anything to go by – and Lowdham are desperately unlucky to take away only pride from this opening game.

Newark’s second signing Harry putting in a man of the match performance.In the first half Newark were a little cagey against a very physical Gonerby side who  took the lead with after 15 minutes gone, and that seemed to spur Newark on. Sam Graves got the home side back in the game after he latched on to a great through ball to make the score 1-1 at half time.

Under 16 Cup Final

Stapleford Town 2, West Bridgford Predators 4

West Bridgford started brightly chasing the dream of the ‘League and Cup double’ and they took an early lead when a Jack Towers long range free kick floated in at the far post right underneath the crossbar to make it 1-0.  Just 5 minutes later Bridgford doubled then lead when a Seb Humphreys cross was headed clear to just outside the area but James Corden ran onto the ball and hit first time from 22 yards out and his scorcher of a shot went in off the underside of the bar. Bridgford controlled the game for the first period and thoroughly deserved their 2-0 lead. Once again Bridgford came out firing on all cylinders and within four minutes of the restart had taken a 3-0 lead when a cleared Callum Wolloch corner found its way to James Corden and he hit a first time angled half volley into the corner of the net.  Credit to Stapleford as their heads never dropped and their team spirit was rewarded after a mistake in the Bridgford defence gifted them a goal. This unnerved Bridgford and Stapleford scored a 2nd goal with 20 minutes to play. However just 2 minutes later saw the final goal of the game when a Jack Towers free kick was headed goal bound by Tom Batterham only for the keeper to pull off a good save but the rebound was smashed home by Ryan Mills from 2 yards. A great season for Bridgford with some fantastic football played throughout and very worthy league and cup double winners.

U16 KO Cup Semi-Final

Calverton Miners Welfare on a cold night saw two hard working teams take to the pitch. The rain that had fallen previously hadn’t affected the pitch and it was quite hard underfoot in sections. Arnold are the Cup holders and last year’s U15 league winners and they are a truly class outfit with quality throughout the squad. Stapleford have done remarkably well since their baptism of fire into the top division 2 years ago. Having had a very good season finishing 4th in a tough league, they came to this semi-final with confidence and having trained hard the previous weeks, there was a determination that they would compete with Arnold. In truth, the opening exchange was pretty tepid as both teams tried to settle, however balls seemed wayward or in the air, though Arnold had the most possession in the first 25 minutes. Several corners were conceded by Stapleford yet the incoming balls were cleared effectively. The 3 midfielders and 3 strikers were given instructions to close down every player and the back four and goalkeeper kept it very tight at the back. A lovely ball played in Arnold and the striker Josh Lawe saw his shot saved superbly by Ben Smith however the linesman flagged for off-side. Moments later, a snap shot from Ben Upton gave the lads in Black and Red some confidence that they weren’t here to make up the numbers and shortly afterwards Fred Verity leapt at a corner and was a whisker away from a goal. Despite the lack of goal mouth action, there was commitment and desire on both sides. Arnold won both league encounters and there was pride at stake for Stapleford who matched everything that was thrown at them. The second half saw both teams step up a gear with Arnold attacking strongly. It looked like they had been given strict instructions to increase the pressure however the counter attacking of Stapleford was superb with Liam, Joel, Reece and then Joe and Ethan working their socks off to create damage in the Arnold ranks. Ben Upton, Blake and Alfie were trojans in the middle and they matched Henry Burton, Frankie, Tighe Duffy and the back four of Fred, Josh, Martyn and George were superb. With Arnold on the attack, the ball was pinched and a delightful through ball saw Ethan sprint away from James in the Arnold defence. Reaching the box, the Arnold keeper out to close the angle but Ethan placed a delightful finish past him to open the scoring. The game had come to life and both teams exchanged attack and defence. Arnold were clear favourites but Stapleford were here to compete with every boy running his socks off. Could the team in 4th place hold on and conquer the mighty Arnold? – with 7 minutes to go, Arnold equalised from a corner as the ball scrambled around until it was put away by Harrison Day. With the equalizer, the sense was that Arnold would go on and create more however no one should have estimated the boys from Stapleford. Nothing was going to pass them without a challenge and these boys didn’t deserve to be thumped; again and again both teams attacked and played decent football. The crowd behind the managers were excellent with support for both sides and this was a true cup tie right until the end when full time was called. Into extra time, same football – attack defend with both teams not wanting to go out of this competition. An attack from Arnold saw Stapleford pinch the ball again and with another delicious pass, Ethan Shipstone was on his bike and away – thundering past the Arnold defence. Again, the keeper came and again Ethan slid the ball past him. Arnold weren’t going without a fight but everything they threw at Stapleford was repelled and this allowed Stapleford to attack. Into the final 10 minutes, you could see both teams slowing due to the effort they had put in but no team was giving up. Today it was about who was going to stand and give their all. With one last push, the ball was swept out wide and onto Reece Willis who sped forward like Usain Bolt. Two defenders chased him to the by-line and with a beautiful turn, he managed to slide the ball across the goal towards Joe Ward who was coming in like bullet train from Tokyo and he thundered the ball into the roof of the net. Final minutes were played out today and Stapleford were victorious – both teams had given their all. No silly business, just hard graft and good football. Great Support from the fans on the side to both teams and this showed a tremendous advert for youth football.

Under 16 Division 4

Fernwood Foxes 1, West Bridgford Lions 2

On a must win game for both sides it was always going to be tight. A good start from both sides which saw Foxes create a few chances but couldn’t convert them and WB Lions looking strong particularly with the goalkeepers clearances. Foxes struck first with a delightful reverse through ball from Josh Wilson that saw Dan Neil finish well as he slotted the ball under the approaching keeper. Following a corner West Bridgford somehow scrambled the ball in to equalise. The game ebbed and flowed for the remainder of the half.

The second half was pretty much the same with both sides creating some chances but failing to capitalise on any of them. Following some indecision in the Foxes defence WB seized their opportunity and took a 2-1 lead. Despite a valiant effort from Foxes the score remained 2-1 to WB who finished runners up in the league.

Radcliffe Olympic 4, Edwalton Cavaliers 3

This was a roller coaster of a game, with Radcliffe opening the score through Miki Moussa, only for Edwalton to level the score. With both sides were evenly matched, chances on goal were coming thick and fast, and once again it was Miki Moussa that scored from a header to put Radcliffe back in front. This time Edwalton struck back within minutes of the restart and with the half coming to a close Cameron Marshall reacted quickly in the six yard box to score and Radcliffe went in at half time with a 3-2 lead. The second half Edwalton came out the stronger and it was not long before they were rewarded when they got another equaliser. It was now anyones game with both sides coming close to scoring. Radcliffe won a corner and when the ball found its way to Patrick Cawthorn his shot found the back of the net to put Radcliffe back in front – could they hold on to the lead this time. Edwalton pushed everyone up to try and get another equaliser, but could not find a way through a resilient Radcliffe defence and when the whistle went for the end of the game, it was a mighty relief for the Radcliffe team and supporters.

Under 16 Division 3

Southwell City 0, NG United 1

Southwell have won their last six games to put them in with a chance of finishing champions but needed three points to be sertain. However, it wasn’t to be and now they have to rely on the results of others to decide their fate. It was a well matched game today with both teams having numerous chances, Southwell with a couple in the first ten minutes but NG finished the first half the strongest. It was 0-0 at half time and could have gone either way, you felt that one goal would decide this game and it did with a good finish by NG about half way through the second half. Southwell tried everything to get back in it but just couldn’t find the back of the net. Both keepers were outstanding today, with the NG keeper making multiple saves in the last 5 minutes to help secure them the win. Southwell gave it a good go but it wasn’t to be, a little nervy at times but that was to be expected. MOTM for Southwell went to James Wright for his never say die attitude.

Wilford Lions 1, Farndon Colts 2

This was an outstanding effort from ten-man Wilford Lions who pushed title contenders Farndon Colts all the way until the final whistle. The game was deadlocked at half time 0-0. Lions took the lead through Liam Chambers but were not able to hold onto the lead for long as Farndon replied with two goals by George Parr and Kieran Schindler to run out 2-1 victors to keep their title hopes alive.

Lowdham Colts Black and Priory Celtic White shared the points in a 2-2 draw. Sam Atkins and Morgan James scored for Lowdham, Josh Clifton scored both goals for Celtic.

Radcliffe Olympic 1, West Bridgford Knights 2

Knights started strongly, assisted by the wind and dominated the first half, Max Wilkes scoring twice via the penalty spot. It looked initially that the second half would go the same way, but a strong spirited performance by Radcliffe saw them pull a goal back through Archie Moreland, and pile on the pressure in search of an equalizer. The closest they came however was a long range shot pushed on to the bar by the Knights GK. The game was finally balanced with both sides having chances in front of goal, but neither side could add to therir total and Bridgford won this close game 1-2.

Teversal 0, Netherfield Boys 1

A Joe Hancock-Sheekey goal was sufficient to give Netherfield Boys all three points in a 1-0 win at Teversal.

Under 16 Division 3

Burton Joyce 3, Long Bennington 3

It was honours even as Burton Joyce and Long bonnington scored three goals apiece. Charlie Burrows, George Patterson and Jack Marshall scored for the visitors whilst Burton Joyce’s goalscorers were Jordan Lane, Harvey Putnar and Daniel Hynes.

Farndon Colts 0, Southwell City 2

A top of the table clash and a must win game for both teams if they have desires on finishing as champions. It was a nervy start for both teams with neither wanting to make the first mistake. The playing surface was awful and made it very difficult for either team to play nice football but despite this both teams battled hard to try and get that elusive goal before half time. There were chances at both ends but both teams defended well and at half time it was 0-0. The second half started much the same and it looked like having 0-0 written all over it, which would have helped Farndon more than Southwell. Again there were chances at both ends but Southwell again defended well with the back four doing an amazing job throughout the entire match. Right back Tom P was outstanding in the first half but came off with an injury at half time at which point Ollie stepped into that position and did an outstanding job, especially considering he only plays the occasional match these days. He was also outstanding at right mid in the first half. The centre backs of Jake and James T were outstanding throughout, as was left back Archie who was simply brilliant today. About half way through the second half Jamie (Super) Beard put an amazing through ball for Milo Sawola to get on the end of and slot home low past the keeper’s right hand to break the deadlock and make it 1-0 to Southwell. It was then a battle royale for the last 20 minutes as Southwell pushed to get a second goal and Farndon pushed to get back level, however, with Sam S, Rufus and Bailey bossing the middle of the park it felt like Southwell now had the upper edge and before long it was 2-0 with a well taken goal by Adam Burbidge after a great through ball by Milo. Adam was pleased to get the goal after missing a couple of opportunities earlier on. Farndon continued to push and never gave up but again the Southwell defence stood strong backed up by another brilliant performance from Josh in goal. It was a nervy last 10 minutes but Southwell won the match 2-0 and now have one hand on the trophy.

Blidworth Welfare 4, Bingham Town Blue 1

A good game of football today both teams trying to pass the ball around. Blidworth had a lot of possession in the first half but it was Bingham that broke the deadlock with a cool finish by Josh Kirk. Blidworth increased the pressure and got the equaliser with Brandon Walker quickest to respond to the cross. The second saw Blidworth take an early lead with Brandon Walker getting his second goal. Ben Huddart then added a third and laid off a nice ball for Peter Grice to make it 4-1 to Blidworth.

Under 16 Division 4

Sherwood FC Red 2, West Bridgford Lions 3

West Bridgford Predators 3, Beeston FC 2

West Bridgford made the early move in the 8th minute when Tom Batterham flicked on a Jack Towers throw-in and James Corden chested it down into his stride before calmly slotting under the keeper from just inside the area to make it 1-0.  Beeston fought back and in the 20th minute a poor clearance in the right back position by Bridgford saw Beeston break quickly and send over a deep cross for an unmarked Niall Hylton to send a looping header over the outstretched arm of Callum Pett in goal.  Seb Humphreys restored the lead for Bridgford in the 28th minute when he latched onto a defence splitting ball from Harvey Grice.  Some great saves from Beeston keeper Jack Knighton kept the score at 2-1 at half time.The 2nd half was played at a fast pace and Bridgford keeper pulled off a brilliant point blank save from Kamani Wilson but in the 55th minute hesitation in the Bridgford defence allowed Kamani Wilson to nip in and equalise for Beeston. A very nervous end ensued and a Bridgford free kick in added time was floated into the box which James Corden managed to get his head to and a resulting scramble in the box saw Harvey Grice slam the ball low and hard into the corner of the net for a dramatic last second winner for Bridgford.

Netherfield Boys needed the win to keep up with the leaders, Lowdham, and the Knights needed the points to stave off the threat of relegation. The Knights started well, but playing against the slope and the wind and faced constant attack from a confident Netherfield. The Knights had a penalty claim denied and this seemed to galvanise them. Despite successive corners Netherfield couldn’t score. This pattern continued in the second half and despite coming under constant pressure. It ended as an intriguing 0-0 draw with the Knights securing a deserved point, whilst Netherfield were ruing their missed chances and their fading title hopes.

Southwell City 3, Gedling Southbank 1

A match played in beautiful weather and a must win game for Southwell if they want to finish as champions. However, it didn’t start well and Southwell were on the back foot right from the off. Within 2 minutes Gedling were 1 up with an outstanding goal from Daniel Harbuz from about 20 yards out. Southwell, however, were quick to regain their composure and played some nice football to get back in the game with a well taken goal from Mitch Yorston. At that stage it was still 50/50 and the game could have gone either way but a second goal for Southwell by Adam Burbidge gave them the lead they were looking for. Gedling came back at them again though and dominated for the last 10 minutes of the first half but were unable to capitalise on their chances and went in 2-1 down. Gedling came out strong again in the second half and were determined to get something from the game but Southwell defended well and were then awarded a penalty which Adam Burbidge slotted away to make it 3-1. It was then tight for the remainder of the game with Gedling being awarded a penalty that was saved by Josh, the Southwell keeper, who was back from injury and simply outstanding today. Both teams had chances in the last 20 minutes but the game finished 3-1 to Southwell and the 3 points they needed. MOTM went to Tom Dale who had his best game of the season today. Other notable performances from Mitch Yorston and Jake Crone but all in all a good team performance.

With two minutes to go they won a corner and Nick Burrowss, their goalie, went up, headed the ball towards goal for Oliver Byrne to score a deserved equaliser to end the match at 2-2. It was an exciting match with the spoils deservedly shared.

Wilford Lions 1, Breaston Park 2

An outstanding team effort by Wilford Lions who had to play the whole game with only 10 players. Early in the game both teams tried to play good football and created goal chances but none were converted and this led to a goal less first half. After the interval Habib Ellani managed to open the scoring for Wilford when he netted his first goal for the club. Breaston kept battling and manged to level the scores with 20 minutes to go. With time running out Wilford had three glorious chances to take the lead, all these chances went begging. On the breakaway Breaston managed to beat the Wilford goalie to take the lead, it was a lead that they would keep till the end of the game. Teddy Wheatley and Greg were the Breaston scorers.

Josh added a second following decent possession by Foxes but were undone with three quick goals from West Bridgford. Foxes allowed the ball to travel across the penalty area and it was finished well by Will Jones. The second saw a slip from a defender and Will Jones outpaced the remaining defender to finish well and the third saw Will Jones unmarked at the far post finish well to complete his hat trick and make it 3-2. It was an even game in the second half that saw both sides hit the post but some excellent persistence from Foxes man of the match Darick Samson crash in the equaliser. Going on form it was tight game and that’s how the game was played out. A good game played in the right way.

Netherfield Boys 3, Radcliffe Olympic 1

A well fought game with both sides giving their all. Netherfield took an early lead but Radcliffe slowly started to get on top, and when Miki Moussa received a pass that split the defence his shot hit the post, but he reacted quickest to the rebound to level the score. Half time came with neither team adding to the score. The second half was as the first with both teams playing some good football, when a Netherfield player chipped the ball over the Radcliffe defence to his team mate who volleyed the ball into the net 2-1. It was not long before they added another to win the game 3-1. Netherfield’s scorers were Jadore Darrell, Keiran Isaacs and Aaron Sisson.

West Bridgford Knights 1, Toton Tigers Orange 2

The game was played in a good spirit and tempo with WB Knights going up 1-0 in the first 10 minutes through Oliver Byrne. The Knights had the majority of the first half but failed to capitalise their dominance. Toton Tigers came out the second half with great energy and purpose and deserved the win with goals from Daniel Eyre and Sam Parker.

Under 16 Division 3

Blidworth Welfare 2, Breaston Park 1

A close game with a pretty even first half but it was Breaston who came in 1-0 up at half time thanks to a Lakshay Sharma goal.

Southwell City 2, Ruddington Colts 1

A top of the table clash and a real 6 pointer with only a few games remaining. A very tight fought match throughout with some good football played by both teams. Ruddington are a physically strong team but Southwell were ready for it this time round and didn’t let Ruddington get the upper hand early on. In fact it was Southwell that probably started better and had a couple of chances early on, however, it was Ruddington that broke the deadlock to go up 0-1 with a Marcus Temby goal slightly against the run of play. As the second half started both teams were still in with a chance of taking all 3 points and Southwell got an early goal by Adam Burbidge to bring it back level at 1-1. From then on it was very tight with both teams having chances with Ruddington hitting the bar and also being denied by some outstanding saves by Liam, the stand in goal keeper for Southwell while Josh recovers from injury. Some tactical genius from Bernard, the Southwell Coach, gave Southwell the upper hand and with about 20 minutes to go it was 2-1 with a well taken goal by Oscar Smith. Ruddington threw everything they had at Southwell but in the end it finished 2-1 to Southwell. The back 4 for Southwell (Jake, James, Tom and Archie) were once again outstanding, as were the midfield who battled for everything. Some stand out performances from Liam (Goalie), Sam Solomon in midfield (MOTM), Rufus (midfield and then left back) and Jake at centre back. To be honest I could name the entire 15 man team today as they all battled to the bitter end and wanted this win so much. Tom D also had what was probably his best game of the season. Well done lads, you deserved the win. A special mention to James W for stepping in to help us out at late notice.

Under 16 Division 4

Attenborough Colts 8, Newark Town 1

Attenborough Colts secured the runners-up place thanks to an 8-1 defeat of Newark Town. Attenborough were 5-0ahead at the break and added three more in the second half. Luke Smith completed his hat trick, Harry Hill, Will Humphriss, Cameron Webster, George Cuesta Sarris and Nathan Dilks got one each.

Fernwood Foxes 1, Trowell FC 2

Foxes started well with little pressure from Trowell, they had all of the possession and numerous chances to take the lead but some good goalkeeping and indecisive play in front of goal meant that a strike from Josh Wilson was their only reward.The second half followed but Trowell did offer a little more going forwards but despite their improvement Foxes still bossed the game. Foxes gave away an unnecessary free kick on the edge of the area and despite a tame shot the ball managed to end up in the back of the Foxes net. Again Foxes pressed forward and had several further chances to go ahead but spurned the opportunities. Following a corner that wasn’t cleared a scuffed Trowell shot somehow ended up going in the back of the net. Foxes still had chances to equalise and win the game but couldn’t convert. Trowell’s scorers were Finlay Smith and Lewis Jackson.

Sherwood FC Red 0, Riverside Whites 3

Ethan Harnett opened the scoring in the 24th minute for Riverside Whites at Sherwood Red. Sean Yorke doubled their lead on 65 minutes and a Harry Bailey goal with four minutes remaining sealed the win.

West Bridgford Predators 2, Arnold Town Yellow 1

A large crowd gathered to see the top of the table clash and were rewarded with an entertaining game. Bridgford started brightly and were awarded a penalty after five minutes when Oising De Gras Coffey was brought down in the area. However the resulting spot kick by Jack Towers cannoned off the post to safety. Bridgford dominated the first quarter of the game and deservedly took the lead on 23 minutes when a delightful curling free kick from Tom Batterham found the back of the net.  Arnold came into the game just before half time and some sloppy defending saw Josh Lawe lob the advancing keeper to make it 1-1 on the stroke of half time. It took just two minutes of the second half for Bridgford to restore their lead when Tom Batterham grabbed his second goal of the game.  Arnold battled bravely to find an equaliser but Bridgford held strong to run out 2-1 winners.

West Bridgford Knights 3, Edwalton Cavaliers 0

This was a controlled performance from West Bridgford Knights, who defended well, never really giving the opposition any clear scoring chances to Edwalton Cavaliers. In attack the Knights constructed a number of well- crafted moves and were good value for the win. Oliver Byrne (2) and Max Wilks were the goalscorers.

Under 16 Division 3

Farndon Colts 5, Breaston Park 1

A deserved win for Farndon who must have been very frustrated to find themselves 0-0 at half time and then 1-0 down as Teddy Wheatley gave the visitors the lead.. Sadly for Breaston once the equaliser went in, errors were punished by some clinical finishing as Ryan Weekly scored twice, Ed Hind, Kieran Schindler and George Parr taking the score to 5-1.

NG United 2, Southwell City 7

A tight fought first half that could have gone either way but it was NG that took the early lead with two quick goals from Kai Etches. Southwell got one back just before half time after Adam Burbidge scored a header from a superbly delivered free kick from Jude Whitfield. The second half was a different encounter with Southwell completely dominating with some nice football once they started using the width. It was 2-2 shortly after the break and then 2-3 almost immediately after. When it went 2-4 NG lost confidence and their heads dropped at which point Southwell turned on the style to make it 2-7 at full time. Goals for Southwell were – Adam Burbidge (3), James Wright (2), Milo Sawola and Sam S olomon. A special mention must go to a few players as follows:- Liam who put in an awesome display as a stand in goalie for the injured Josh and well deserved his MOTM, Dougal for his ridiculously long throw ins, one of which resulted in a goal, James W for running his heart out and getting his just rewards with two goals and the back four of Tom P, Archie, Jake and James T for their outstanding performance in the second half. Well done lads, you deserved the 3 points today.

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote 1, Fernwood Foxes 4

The game started really well as Foxes had most of the possession but Bramcote looked dangerous on the break.

Several missed chances by Foxes and two very good saves from Jack Woodcock kept the score level. Foxes

made a couple of tactical changes and soon took charge of the game. The pressure finally paid off and a cross

from the right was turned in by Adam Munnery at the far post. The excellent Jonah Couzens Allen added a second but despite numerous other chances Foxes couldn’t add to the score line and it was 0-2 at the break.The second half started as the first had ended with Foxes bossing the game, again several chances were missed before a

great turn and finish from the edge of the area by Marcus Hallam made it 0-3. With little pressure a clumsy challenge gave Bramcote a penalty which was converted really well by Ben Whiley to make it 1-3. The penalty didn’t really affect Foxes who continued to press. The excellent and Man of the match Darick Samson bundled in the fourth and Lucas James added the fifth.

Arnold continued to dominate with skilful build up play leading to a second McLachlan goal, from a fine assist from Stan Boden. In the second half, Newark started strongly, piling the pressure on the Arnold defence.

Southwell City 8, Wilford Lions 2

Southwell started well and were looking for a good result following last week’s morale booster. However, they missed several chances early on and before they knew it Wilford were 2-0 up against the run of play as Chris Tobin and Luca Valerio-Wright scored. It was then that Southwell team captain Adam Burbidge, took it upon himself to motivate the team and lead by example. He took on several players with some brilliant footwork and slotted home from a very tight angle to make it 2-1. Within a couple of minutes he was there again to make it 2-2 with a well taken shot. This lifted Southwell and they started to play some nice football, using the wings well and also defending solidly at the back. The game continued in this manner with Southwell dominating and Adam scoring a total of 6. Jude Whitfield scored a very well taken penalty into the bottom left corner after Burbidge was brought down in the box. Highlight of the match was Jamie (Super) Beard scoring his first goal of the season after also being involved in some good build up play. All in all an outstanding performance from Southwell and every team member played their part.

Under 16 Division 4

Attenborough Colts 1, Fernwood Foxes 2

On a very heavy pitch both sides started well. Foxes pressed the forward well and the early pressure paid off with the excellent Josh Wilson turning and finishing well from the edge of the area to make it 1-0. The second soon followed, a great move down the left resulted in the ball being passed to Josh Wilson who ran forward and finished well with his left foot. Foxes continued to play well and dominated the first half but couldn’t add to the score line. It was 0-2 at half time. Attenborough started the second half really well and played much better although for the main part Foxes defence stood steadfast. However following a corner Ben Hudson managed to lose his marker and finished well with a header. Attenborough continued to play well without creating any clear cut opportunities and as the game came to a close Foxes managed to seize back the initiative finishing the stronger and were unlucky not to add to their score line. A good game between two evenly matched sides but the early desire shown by Foxes won out in the end – well done Attenborough.

Under 16 Division 3

Ruddington Colts 0, Southwell City 1

A top of the table clash and one Southwell needed to win to stop their recent run of bad form. Southwell have been working well at training and realised that it’s going to hard work if they want to win the league. They turned up today with a good attitude and looked for the win, however, it was Ruddington that were the stronger team from the off, being very physical and stamping their authority on the game. Whilst they dominated for much of the first half though, they didn’t take their chances whereas Southwell did to go in at half time one goal up with a goal by Adam Burbidge. The second half was a different story and Southwell decided they were going to get more physical themselves, and it worked. They were a different team and dominated the second half but again both teams missed numerous opportunities. Ruddington were awarded a penalty with about 15 minutes to go but it went high and wide, a let-off for Southwell. Both teams played well today and it could have gone either way but this was one of Southwell’s best performances of the season and a win was exactly what they needed. Their work rate was outstanding and the win was deserved. The entire team played well but some notable performances as follows: Oscar Smith who without doubt had his best game ever and won every header in the second half. Rufus had blinder, particularly as he played half the game out of position at centre back following an injury. Josh got man of the match for his outstanding goalkeeping and Liam held strong at the back and controlled the central defence. To be honest I could say positives about each and every player as they all did their bit today and got their rewards.

However,this was short lived as Lowdham went straight down the Radcliffe end and scored to go back in front 3-2.

They had several chances before Josh Wilson dropped a delightful pass into the path of Marcus Hallam who finished well into the bottom corner to open the scoring. The pressure continued which saw Dylan Metcalf score one of the strangest goals of the season which as a clearance from the goalkeeper of WHBB hit him flush in the face but rebound in. The third was scored after the improving Lucas James rose well and headed home from a corner. WHBB then scored from an excellent Dane Carlyle free kick after Foxes had given away a needless free kick but was finished well into the top corner. It finished 3-1 at half time. The second half saw a dip in performance from Foxes that gave some encouragement to WHBB who despite more of the ball couldn’t create any real chances that their improved play deserved.

Fernwood Foxes 2, Sherwood FC Red 1

The game started with Foxes having a lot of ball and playing some nice passing football. A number of chances were created but through a combination of some excellent saves and missed chances Foxes couldn’t make the breakthrough their play deserved.

The breakthrough came as the play was switched from right to left and Adam Munnery caught a sweet half volley to see the ball fly into the net. It was 1-0 at half time. The second half started as the first had ended but again the Sherwood Red goalkeeper was in top form keeping Foxes out. Sherwood definitely picked up their game in the second half and created a few more chances. Their pace finally broke the Foxes defence that saw a good finish to equalise. This didn’t seem to phase Foxes who kept to their passing game which finally paid off when Dan Neil crashed in the winning goal after some good work from man of the match Jordan Kennedy. It finished 2-1 to Foxes.

It was Tevesal that started the best and for the first fifteen minutes were all over Radcliffe and scored their first goal.

Under 16 Division 3

Southwell City 1, Long Bennington 2

Long Bennington arrived today with one aim in mind against league leaders Southwell, and that was to win the match. LB played some lovely football right from the off whilst Southwell looked half asleep. It was about half way through the first half when LB broke the deadlock with a well taken goal after a defensive error by Southwell. LB looked the better team throughout the first half and deserved to go in at HT a goal up. Southwell played some better football in the second half but nowhere the standard they’re capable of and LB punished them with a second goal after about 10 minutes of the second half. LB defended extremely well throughout the entire game. Southwell managed to get a goal back (Sam Bowring) with about 20 minutes to play but never really looked like winning and the game finished 1-2. LB deserved the 3 points and Southwell go home nursing their wounds after the first league defeat of the season. We now need to dust ourselves off and come back fighting with the remaining 3 games before Christmas. Some notable performances today from Jake Crone, Sam Solomon and James Talbot but other than that it was a poor performance from Southwell. Congratulations to LB, a very sporting team with a great coach and supporters. Jake Eagle and Jack Maidment were the LB scorers.

Wilford Lions 2, Bingham Town Blue 4

In the battle at the bottom of the table Bingham Town Blue were 4-2 victors to move above Wilford Lions.

Bingham scored another three in the second half to make scoreline 2-4, Josh Kirk scoring all four goals for the visitors.

Blidworth Welfare 2, Farndon Colts 1

Great game of football today from two committed sides. A good start from both teams with Blidworth slightly edging it but it was Farndon who had a great chance to take the lead from the penalty spot but an unbelievable save from Charlie Dando gave Blidworth the confidence to push forward. It wasn’t long before Blidworth took the lead with a great lob from Blidworth forward Dan Spark. The second half started the same as the first and Farndon were awarded another penalty and this time Sam Cobb slotted home. This gave Farndon the opportunity to put the pressure on Blidworth. But with 15 mins to go Blidworths Peter Grice put in a great cross for Owen Brookes to slide the ball in. Both teams then had chances but Blidworth were not in the mood to surrender their lead.

Ruddington Colts 6, Gedling Southbank 0

Ruddington maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a great team performance against a good Gedling team who never stopped working to turn this game around.

Blidworth battled hard to level the score but Attenborough held out to win 0-1 A great game of football from both teams.

Fernwood Foxes 8, Rolls Royce Leisure 1

Foxes bossed the game from the start with the excellent Josh Wilson pulling the strings from midfield. The first goal came against the run of play and following a corner which Foxes failed to clear Rolls Royce scored. This spurred Foxes on but despite several excellent chances failed to convert until man of the match Marcus Hallam scored his first this was quickly followed by a second from Jonah Couzens Allen who also converted from the penalty spot after he was fouled in the penalty area. The fourth came just before half time following a very quick counter attack and Marcus scoring the pick of his four goals with a delightful chip over the advancing Rolls Royce goal keeper. The second half followed the pattern of the first and although Rolls Royce had a little bit more of the ball they failed to convert any of their chances which saw their closet effort hitting the bar. Foxes wrestled back control of the game and went on to score four further goals. This saw the excellent Marcus Hallam get his hat trick and fourth goal, a fine individual solo run and goal from the fantastic Josh Wilson and Jacob Nicholson get his first ever goal in club football – well done Jacob. The game was played in the right spirit and Rolls Royce contributed to a good game. Well done Rolls Royce.

Trowell FC 0, West Bridgford Lions 7

A pretty even first half. West Bridgford managed to hit Trowell on the break twice to hold a 2-0 half time lead.

This spurred Carlton on and they responded quickly with a lovely left footed shot from Mark Faflik into the bottom corner. Carlton continued to press and Jamie Marks slotted in from a corner to make it 2-2. With seconds remaining Tom Poole hit an unstoppable shot from 20 yards out that sealed the win for Carlton.

The Knights battled and defended resolutely and at half time it was even at 0-0. In the second half the roles were reversed with the Knights pressing and creating chances but unable to convert any of their chances. Just when it seemed to be a creditable draw, Hucknall won a freekick on the edge of the box and hit a superb low but fast shot in the back of the net. In response, despite applying more and more pressure, Hucknall held out to record their third win of the season and move fourth in the league.

Radcliffe Olympic 2, Priory Celtic White 2

A close game with Radcliffe putting Priory under pressure from the start, and all that pressure paid off when Max Lewis scored for Radcliffe. Priory were under constant attack and Radcliffe got a second when Lewis Korol scored from a header, and Radcliffe went into half time 2-0 up. The second half got under way with Priory pulling a goal back when Josh Clifton had a great long range shot that flow into the top corner to make it 2-1. Both sides were playing some lovely football, the next goal would be critical and it was Radcliffe who got the ball in the back of the net only to be disallowed for offside. This gave Priory new hope and from a break they got the equalizer through Clifton and with not much time left the game ended as a fair draw.

Under 16 Division 3

Southwell continued to dominate and at last Adam managed to score to make it 0-3 with a great header from a corner. Breaston refused to give up and at times played some lovely football but they didn’t seem to be able to penetrate the Southwell defence, who were playing three at the back today with James Talbot, Tom Preece and Jake Crone, all of whom were solid throughout. Just before half time Southwell created another chance and Liam Aldred managed to slot the ball home through a mass of Breaston defenders and at a tight angle. HT and 0-4. Breaston came out in the second half with a different mind-set and formation, opting to play three at the back in an attempt to get back in the game and it worked soon into the second half with a goal to take the game to 1-4. Again Breaston played some nice passing football but Adam was not missing his chances this half and soon scored twice again to make it 1-5 and then 1-6. Dougal was on fire up the right wing and put some nice crosses in but Breaston defended them well and then scored a good goal to make it 2-6. Jude Whitfield then came back on after leaving during the first half due to injury and with about 5 minutes to go he saw the keeper off his line and took his chance, It was another of those goals that only Jude can score, 35 yards out and perfectly placed. FT and 2-7 to Southwell who played well today and deserved this win. The whole team should be proud of themselves.

This was a proper cup tie played in cold and wet conditions. Southwell arrived today with a few players missing but those that were there were determined to put on a good show. Southwell had most of the play for the first ten minutes but then Basford got a lucky goal after a defensive error by Southwell. After that it was a close fought battle all the way with Basford just edging it with another goal before half time to go in at 0-2, Callum Alls and Jamie Scott-Parkin being the scorers. Basford had a few class players that made the difference in the first half. Southwell made some changes at half time and played with only three at the back in the second half, in an attempt to get back into the game. It worked and within one minute of the second half it was 1-2 with a well taken goal by Sam Solomon. It was then a battle royale for the entire second half, in the main played in good spirit and with lots of passion. Southwell tried everything to get the equaliser and at one point it felt as though they had 10 players up front. However, it wasn’t to be and Basford held on to take the win.

Blidworth Welfare 2, Southwell City 5

This was a top of the table clash with Blidworth looking for revenge after their defeat away to Southwell at the start of the season, a game which could easily have gone either way. On this occasion though, it was Southwell that dominated throughout and took their chances well. The game opened with a chance for Adam Burbidge (Southwell) in the first 30 seconds and there were more chances for Southwell in the first five minutes with Theo having a great shot that was well saved by the Blidworth keeper and Adam also going close but again denied by the keeper. It could have been 3-0 after about 15 minutes but Southwell couldn’t seem to finish. However, they continued with the pressure and before long it was 1-0 with a well taken goal by Adam Burbidge, followed shortly after with another from Adam to make it 2-0 at HT. Blidworth tried everything to come back at Southwell but struggled to create chances, although they did look dangerous when taking corners.

Southwell continued to play nice football though and another goal by James Wright, with his left foot, and it was 4-1. Again Blidworth came back to make it 4-2 but another Southwell goal from Milo finished the job off. Both teams played some very nice football, all in very good spirit, and it was a joy to watch. This is probably Southwell’s best performance to date and they never looked like losing today. A great result again a well organised Blidworth whose scorers were Callum Griffiths and Deniss Nitiss.

NG travelled to Breaston in search of a third win on the bounce, a poor first half performance allowed Breaston to have most of the possession and go into the break a goal to the good through a Lennon Fendick goal. A different NG came out for the second half, dominating possession NG created chance after chance and finally Dylan Rawson rifled in from close range to level the scores. On top, NG continued their assault on the Breaston goal and a quick fire brace from Jamani Gardener put the game out of Breaston’s reach. Improvement seen from Breaston. 1-0 up at half-time and could and should have been 2-0.

Southwell City 2, Burton Joyce 1

Bingham Town Blue 1, Fernwood Foxes 2

A goal in each half secured a 2-1 victory for Fernwood Foxes at Bingham Town Blue and a place in the next round.

The game started with both sides playing cautiously. Foxes started to play some nice football and passed it around well but Bingham defended strongly and looked quick on the break. Following an excellent free kick from Josh Wilson the ball wasn’t cleared and the resulting panic saw a Bingham defender turn the ball into his own net. This settled Foxes and they remained in charge for the remainder of the first half. The second half started as the first half had finished with Foxes playing well with Bingham defending well and snubbing out any threat. Foxes scored their second following some excellent play, the ball was played into the penalty and with the ball bouncing around the excellent and man of the match Marcus Hallam smashed the ball into the bottom corner to make it 2-0. Foxes kept the ball well until a long range shot from Bingham deflected off a Foxes player and wrong footed the Foxes goal keeper to make it 2-1 with 5 minutes to go.

Blidworth continued to enjoy the better chances until NG united took the lead again just before half time.

Ten minutes from half time saw a Priory corner not dealt with by the Teversal back line and a simple tap in gave Priory the equalizer, and then with only a couple of minutes left on the ref’s watch Taylor Bagshaw struck a volley from twenty five yards that flew into the top of the net and give Teversal the half time advantage. The second half was 15 minutes old when Teversal fashioned a chance that Keatoin Kissane grabbed. Priory mounted more pressure on the opponents goal and got their reward with another well taken goal.

Under 16 Division 1

Beeston FC 2, Bingham Town Red 3

Bingham Town Red won by the odd goal of five at Beeston FC.

Stapleford Town 3, Collingham Cougars 2

The old football saying “It was a game of two halves” certainly was the case today. Both sides made a nervy start with Collingham taking the lead direct from a corner. Stapleford then went up the other end of the pitch and saw a ball tantalisingly roll all the way across the face of the goal with no one to follow up. Pressure in the first half was mainly with the Amber and Blacks of Collingham which culminated in several corners one of which produced their second goal and a quality strike it was. Collinghams right winger produced a superb volley from the corner of the 18 yard box, curling the ball into the opposite top corner to make the half time score 0-2 to Collingham. Shortly into the second half of the game Collinghams left back had to be subbed through injury which gave Staplefords main threat more opportunities on the ball and Stapleford started to grow in confidence and Collingham were coming under increasing pressure. Stapleford eventually got back into the game with the awarding of a soft penalty for pushing in the area, which they dispatched accordingly. The goal as always gave the opposition a new lease of energy and they gained the momentum and in the remaining minutes two defensive headers from Collingham fell invitingly to the unmarked Stapleford midfield who took their chances coolly. The game finished 3-2 to Stapleford a good comeback from 2-0 down. Collingham hopefully have learnt a lesson today about how not to close a game out. Well done to Stapleford.

AFC Mansfield 0, Arnold Town Yellow 7

Teversal 2, West Bridgford Knights 2

An even contest saw the points shared at Unwin Road.  Almost from the kick off a diagonal ball from Matty Collins picked out Kieron Burton to open the scoring for Teversal. The game soon settled down after this and West Bridgford started to probe but were not having much luck getting past the Teversal back line and keeper Jack Judson.The second half was 5 minutes old when West Bridgford fashioned a half chance that Max Wilkes grabbed. Teversal mounted more pressure on the opponent’s goal and got their just rewards when Kyle Bacon had a good effort saved by the keeper but Charley Jones-Knott was on hand to smash the ball into the empty net. Halfway through the second half West Bridgford were handed a life line when a rash challenge by Liam Bennett in the area, was seen by the ref as a penalty and Max Wilkes stroked the ball away to get his and West Bridgford Knights second goal of the match to make the final score 2-2.

Toton Tigers Orange 5, Radcliffe Olympic 0

Toton Tigers Orange are in third place following their 5-0 defeat of Radcliffe Olympic. Tigers held a slender 1-0 lead at the half way stage and then added four more goals in the second half.

The second half got under way and when Radcliffe score two more own goals the game was all but over. Totton then went on to score twice themselves to finish 5-0.

Under 16 Division 3

Breaston Park 0, Gedling Southbank 6

Gedling Southbank gave a very good team performance to come away from Breaston Park with all three points in a 6-0 win. The first half was close although Gedling did manage to take a 2-0 lead into the halftime break. Gedling then managed to pull away with a hat trick by Daniel Harbuz and a pair from Kai Partington. Man of the match was Joe Woodford with a solid defensive performance. A closer game than the ultimate final score suggested. For 60 mins it could have gone either way.

Southwell City 2, Farndon Colts 2

A very tough and tight game with Farndon taking the advantage early on to go 1-0 up. Southwell responded with a great goal into the bottom corner by Jude Whitfield, after taking on two players and beating them. 1-1 at half time and all to play for. Farndon had more of the ball but struggled to make the most of it and create chances, although the Southwell back four made it hard for them. The chances they did create were thwarted by a couple of magnificent saves by the Southwell keeper. At the other end, Southwell were struggling to get hold of the ball but when they did they somehow created chances and Adam Burbidge scored with a great improvised header with about seven minutes to play. It was then a case of hanging on as Farndon piled on the pressure and created a chance with three minutes to go that got them the equaliser. All in all a good game that could have gone either way.

Under 16 Division 3

Bingham Town Blue 1, Breaston Park 6

Breaston Park got their first points of the season with a 6-1 win at Bingham Town Blue. A good first half performance from Breaston who managed to hold their game tight for the first ten minutes and then as confidence grew managed to dominate and take clinical finishes to put the game out of sight by half-time.

However, with ten minutes to play of the first half Jude Whitfield saw a chance from 35 yards out and took it, another superb long distance goal straight into the top corner. This was a hard fought match on a very difficult pitch and both teams created chances, although Gedling never really tested the Southwell keeper. The game was sealed by yet another Adam Burbidge goal with 20 minutes to play after a great cross from Tom Dale. All in all a tough match but one that Southwell should have won comfortably if only they had taken their chances.

West Bridgford Predators 4, Beeston FC  1

This match is always a good game of football with both teams trying to play the game the right way.  West Bridgford Predators struck first with an early goal in the second minute thanks to James Corden but then found it very hard to break down the Beeston defence and in particular a way past the impressive Beeston goalkeeper Jack Knighton.  On the stroke of half time Ryan Mills doubled the lead with a powerful header which the keeper could not keep out.  Beeston came out firing on all cylinders in the second half and within the first minute had pulled a goal back thanks to a Harry Oldershaw cross cum shot that found the far top corner of the net.  This spurred on West Bridgford and it took just another three minutes to notch their third goal thanks to Tom Batterham.  In the final minute of the game Harvey Grice made the score 4-1.

NG put pressure on the Blidworth defence and eventually scored when awarded a penalty, Michalik converting the spot kick. However, Blidworth held on to win by the odd goal of seven.

Southwell City 2, Bingham Town Blue  0

Southwell made the fatal mistake of looking at last weeks results and went into this match thinking it would be easy and it certainly wasn’t. All in all a reasonably tight game which Southwell edged by taking their chances in the first half as Archie Sharratt and Mitchel Yorston scored. Bingham created chances but other than a couple of half attempts on goal they never really threatened the Southwell keeper. Southwell sit proudly at the top of the table after taking maximum points from their first three games.

The first was finished by the ever excellent Marcus Hallam following a great team passing sequence, the second from Adam Munnery that saw his 30 yard half volley fly into the top corner – what a fantastic goal, the third was finished well by Josh again following some excellent team play. Foxes then relaxed and following a preventable corner the Newark Town player rose well to head in, their second soon followed. Foxes lost the ball in midfield and with plenty of pace up front the Newark Town striker ran clear and finished well in the bottom corner. This seemed to stir Foxes who finished the half strongly, this was epitomised by some strong individual play by Josh Wilson who chipped the goal keeper from the edge of the box for his second and to make it 4-2 to Foxes at half time.The second half started as the first had finished with Foxes bossing the play.

It was Teversal that opened the scoring when a good cross into the box by Cllum Timmons was met with a fine header by Charley Jones-Knott.. The game was still even with both sides having chances on goal and when Radcliffe shot on goal was blocked, Miki Moussa reacted quickest to put the ball into the net to level the scores. Half time came with nether side adding to the score.The second half was much the same but this time it was Radcliffe that scored first with Miki Moussa getting his second goal.

Both teams pressed hard for the win and when Miki got on the end of a long ball in the last seconds of the game his shot just went past the post.

Under 16 Division 3

Bingham Town Blue 3, Wilford Lions 9

Wilford Lions ran out easy winners in the end of this encounter at Bingham Town Blue, but this result could have been so much different if Bingham had managed to extend their lead from the penalty spot to go 2.0 up against the run of play.  David Mighten pulled of a stunning save at a critical point on the game and this spurred on the Lions. Ellis Brittan managed to score two goals before half time, his second goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Bingham.

The newly introduced Daniel Radford netted a quick fire hat trick whilst Wilf Tebite and Barrington Wellington-Thomas also managed to get on the score sheet.

Blidworth increased the pressure as they went in search of an equaliser but were unable to make their way through a solid Farndon defence

Long Bennington 2, Southwell City 5

A game played in awful conditions with constant rain throughout. Southwell started well with Jake Crone taking an early chance to be 1-0 up after only a couple of minutes. Shortly after it was 2-0 with a good finish from Adam Burbidge. At that point it looked to be all one way but Long Bennington re-grouped and got back in it with a Josh Smith goal before half time. Long Bennington actually dominated the game for the last 20 minutes of the first half and Southwell were happy to see the break. Southwell started playing some lovely football throughout the second half and in the process creating chances that Adam Burbidge was more than happy to finish off. He scored three in the second half and has now scored 7 in 2 games. Long Bennington also played some good football in the second half and got a second goal towards the end. All in all it was a well-balanced match that could have gone either way, the difference today was that Southwell took their chances and the home side didn’t. The final score therefore flattered Southwell somewhat. Long Bennington played with great spirit and sportsmanship and for a new team they should be very proud of themselves.

Under 16 Division 4

Under 16 Division 1       

Collingham Cougars 4, Bingham Town Red 2

A new challenge for the side from Collingham which we knew was going to be a tough one in the 1st division of the Notts Youth League. Our first opponents of the new campaign were Bingham Town Red who themselves were also new to this division. After a slow start to the first half by Collingham which saw Bingham show more urgency in the initial exchanges, Collingham grew in confidence and scored twice to take a 2-0 lead, Tyler Coy and Kyle Bellamy scoring. Then a missed timed header from the Collingham centre half allowed the ever willing Dylan Nesbitt to latch on and fire home to end the half 2-1. The second half saw a resurgence from Bingham who pushed Collingham back finally getting their rewards levelling at 2-2, Nesbit again the scorer, and then missing a “sitter” that would have gave Bingham the lead. Collingham gradually got a foothold again and scored a stunner by the ever composed Sam Goodwin. The game was killed off with minutes to spare by a neat finish from Collinghams man of the match, Tyler Coy.                                                         

Under 16 Division 2

Teversal 1, Lowdham Colts Black 4

Both teams matched each other providing an entertaining game until the final ten minutes with the scores level at 1-1, when a flurry of three goals gave Lowdham the points.

Priory Celtic White 3, Radcliffe Olympic 1

A hard fought game with both sides playing some good football, Miki Moussa opened the scoring when he got on the end of a good cross in to the box and gave the keeper no chance to give Radcliffe the lead. Priory then started to press the Radcliffe goal, but Radcliffe held out till the last few minutes of the half, when Priory eventually got their reward with a breakaway goal. The second half got underway when Priory had a long range shot that went under the keeper to make it 2-1. The game then turned into an even game with both sides having chances to score, but it was Priory that scored again and the game finished with Priory winning 3-1. Priory scorers were Jacob Boocker, Joshua Clifton and Matthew Hallam.                                                             

Under 16 Division 3

Wilford Lions 0, Long Bennington 5        

This was a competitive and very sporting match that was a pleasure to watch. Wilford Lions started slightly the stronger of the two teams but Long Bennington struck with a lovely counter attack created by some great passing with Iwan Evans playing a perfect ball for Benn Barretto to finish decisively in the 5th minute. Again some great passing play led to another great through ball from Iwan Evans for Tom Marsh to finish instinctively on 10 minutes. Long Bennington were now starting to dominate. A very strong defence stopped Wilford from getting forward and allowing Long Bennington to express themselves in midfield. A commanding performance from Jake Bradshaw in the visitors’ goal ensured Wilfords long balls and crosses were dealt with and turned quickly into counter attacks. Ben Barretto turned provider in the 20th minute. After beating two defenders he cut the ball back for Tom Marsh to coolly notch up a striker’s goal at the far post. In the 35th minute Jake Eagle sprayed a perfectly weighted diagonal ball to Ben Barretto who calmly finished the half scoring to make it 4-0. The second half saw Wilford come back into the game and mount more attacks but these were well absorbed by the Long Bennington defence. Some good passing led to another Long Bennington goal on 70 minutes with Charlie Burrows rifling a shot into the bottom corner. The game was much more end to end for the final minutes with both defences tackling well to stop any further scoring.

Gedling Southbank 2, Blidworth Welfare 3        

Blidworth Welfare won by the odd goal of five at Gedling Southbank. In a very close game, Gedling edged the first half, however Blidworth edged the second half and got the winner. The game got off to a cagey start with not a lot between the two teams. But it was Gedling who took the lead with a good turn in the box from Kai Partington. With a couple of minutes until half time Dan Spark grabbed the equaliser for Blidworth. Blidworth started the second half strongly but Gedling broke with a great finish from Kai Partington, his second of the match. Blidworth then changed formation and with Gedling sitting back Craig Gladman let fly with a screamer to make it 2-2. Blidworth kept up the pressure and got the 3rd goal from man of the match Ciaran Fenton. Gedling then had to come from behind but Blidworth held firm to run out 3-2 winners in a great game.

Under 16 Division 4

Fernwood Foxes 7, Blidworth Welfare Tigers 0

A wet start to the season saw Fernwood Foxes play Blidworth. The game started a little cagey but both sides soon settled into the game Foxes had most of the play and following several missed chances Lucas Neil scored from a flick following a free kick. A good run and excellent finish from Jonah Couzens Allen made it 2-0 and that’s how it was at half time. The second half started with Foxes still attacking. Foxes were pressing and further goals from Lucas Neill (2), Dan Neill, a superb half volley from Jack Clark and a 30 yard chip from Josh Wilson secured the points. Blidworth did get forward a bit more late on but a sound Foxes defence kept them at bay. Foxes had several further chances to add to the score line but couldn’t convert them this would have been harsh on Blidworth who played well for the first game together as a side, Josh Allin being their man of the match.              

Trowell 1, Riverside Whites 2   

Riverside Whites won a tightly contested match at Trowen with a 2-1 scoreline. A sloppy back pass led to Trowell opening the scoring through James Crofts.

Ethan Harnett levelled the scores after 65 minutes and five minutes later William Pacel scored the winner.

Clifton AW Blue 13, Newark Town 1      

After going a goal down to Newark Town in the first half as Nathan Smalley scored, Clifton AW Blue turned the game around to runout comfortable winners as a result of an excellent team performance involving great passing and off the ball movement. Keaton Bradbury went nap with five goals; Bradley Smith completed his hat trick; Callum Kendrick got a brace with Harley Howarth completing the list of Clifton scorers. This was newly formed Newark’s first competitive match and they gave a good account of themselves and will develop as a team as the season progresses.
