4th December 2021 - Fast starting Hardwicke see off Broadwell Amateurs

Ron Holpin

A frenetic start at Hardwicke for the visit of Broadwell Amateurs with the home side forcing four corners early on. Jordan Dowdeswell delivered a superb corner in the 25th minute which was handled by a Broadwell defender and Adam Bloonfield slotted the resultant penalty into the Broadwell net. The Broadwell defender was shown a red card for the incident. Broadwell pressed well going close with a deep looping cross only for the home side to win back possession and break away and a looping ball into the box was duly headed home by Will Matthews on 32 minutes. The home side dominated possession for the remainder of the first half but failed to make it count.

Broadwell started the second half the brighter of the two, attacking the Hardwicke box on several occasions with one of those attacks leaving the spectators at a loss as to how the ball didn’t hit the back of the Hardwicke net, keeper Ollie Hall with a superb last ditch save. The home side introduced Ben King on 70 minutes coming on for Bloomfield making an immediate impact, following some quality from Humphries in midfield who set King off on a direct run into the box only to be tripped by the Broadwell full back the Referee waved play on. The 75th minute saw the return of Will Higgins following a lengthy injury on for Matthews. Broadwell we’re battling, though nothing seemed to fall their way and a handball in the box resulted in a second penalty on 85 minutes which was neatly put away by Higgins to finish the game 3-0

Frampton United travelled the short distance to Quedgeley Wanderers and came away with the three points after a disappointing result last week. The opening goal went to the home side on 10 minutes Henry Birkett firing home from 18 yards. Right on half time saw home keeper Ben Holborough pull off a great save from Frampton’s Billy Curtis to keep the score at 1-0. Quedgeley had a great chance to go two up on 50 minutes from the penalty spot but the Frampton keeper made a great save. The visitors drew level on 60 minutes with a goal from Billy Curtis, then with 10 minutes to go Frampton grabbed the three points when Manolo Espada got onto a great cross into the box to tap the ball in.

An outstanding game by the Patchway Town keeper Sam Burgess almost got them the three points against Wick today. Patchway took the lead on 8 minutes when home keeper Joe Pople decided to leave his goal to try to cut out Patchway’s Matt Davies who had latched onto a long punt forward but he never made it and Teague lobbed the ball over him into the net. Ben Weaver was put clear on goal a minute later but Sam Burgess came off his line to smother the ball. Wick continued to attack the visitors defence but were unable to get the ball past the unbeatable Burgess. At the other end Pople brought of a great save to deny Patchway taking a 2-0 lead. It was Burgess again who made a fantastic finger tip save to deny Joe Thomas an equalising goal. The home side became very frustrated as Burgess continued to thwart their efforts but they got out of jail in time added when they were awarded a penalty taken by Mike Hardiman, Burgess saved but Joe Thomas followed in to net the rebound.

Bromley Heath United gained three points with this 3-0 win at home to English Bicknor whose form is very unpredictable. The home side got off to a great start scoring in the fifth minute from a ball crossed in by Nurse laid back across goal by Louis Hoyle for Trai Ellison-Sacket to tap in. It was 2-0 after 20 minutes when Bicknor gave away a penalty that was put away by Alvin Nurse. The 75th minute saw a third for the home side a cross into the box and Olli Hanham who had travelled 40 yards to get on the end of it and finish it off. Bicknor only created one really good chance a shot from Riley that struck the crossbar.

Bottom ClubHanham Athletic faced Rockleaze Rangers for a second time this season with the score line much better than the first meeting. Rangers took an early lead when Marcus Williams chipped the home keeper after just 2 minutes. The home side were caught out again when Dan Webb made it 2-0 to Rangers. They did however pull a goal back in the 30th minute Jack Knight getting on the score sheet. Rangers almost made it three but for a great tackle by Terry Wise to overt the danger. Hanham had a great chance to level on 60 minutes but the Ranger keeper saved the spot kick after Liam Jenkins had been brought down in the box. A free kick from the home side’s Liam Jenkins was headed onto the crossbar by Terry Wis in the 70th minute. Then the home keeper Sam Brown made several good saves to keep his side in the game. Rangers got a third goal through Zayd Alli, then in the 87th minute Hanham were awarded a second penalty after Josh Gibbs was brought down in the area and then got up to strike the ball into the Rockleaze net from the spot.

Ruardean Hill Rangers slipped up at home going down 3-1 to Henbury. The home side scored first after 8 minutes Luke Brown heading home from a Sam Mason cross. On 13 minutes there was a bout of head tennis in the Rangers box before Andy Dickinson fired his shot over the bar. Rangers’ keeper Arron Underwood gave away a penalty on 20 minutes and Kane Manning’s made sure from the spot 1-1. On 35 minutes Henbury keeper Jefferies brought off a great save tipping Steve Clark’s header over the bar. Another save from Jefferies on 52 minute this time tipping a Steve Clark free kick over the bar. In the 67st minute and against the run of play Henbury took the lead Kane Manning’s getting on the score sheet for a second time. The visitors rounded the scoring of on 75 minutes with a strike from Aaron Anglin.

Les James League Cup sponsored by Boca Teamwear - Little Stoke progress to semi-finals

Little Stoke go into the semi-final with a 3-2 win at home to Gala Wilton. Stoke were 3-0 up by half time. The first effort on goal on 14 minutes came from a through ball by Alex Hill to Ethan Moore whose shot went just wide. On 20 minutes a Jayden Holver lob from 35 yards also went just wide of the target. Stoke went one up on 30 minutes from a delivery from Alex Hill into the box and a superb overhead kick from Phil Kourouma that hit the inside of the post on its way in. 38 minute saw a second for Stoke, a through ball from Holver saw an error by the Gala keeper Lewis skyers and Aaron West was on hand to tap in. The third for Stoke came a few minutes before the break a cross ball from Kourouma allowed Aaron West to play the ball to Kahlil Lamir to score from just inside the box. Gala hit back with two late goals just a minute apart the first on 81 minutes came from Ben Sluman after a scramble in the box the ball came out and Sluman hit a 25-yard shot home. Just a minute later it was 3-2 when Dan Gayner scored from the penalty spot. The last few minutes was a bit Shakey for the home side but they managed to hold on for the win.

26th November 2021 - Patchway Town manager taking the rough with the smooth

Simon Parkinson

TIM Minihane says he is prepared to take the rough with the smooth in the bid to put Patchway Town firmly back on the local football map.

The Scott Park outfit approach their home encounter with struggling Hanham Athletic tomorrow respectably placed ninth on the Marcliff Gloucestershire County League ladder and two wins from their last three league appearances in tow to bolster belief levels.

Encouraged manager Minihane accepts, with some frustration, that an enforced summer 2021 rebuilding operation meant his new-look team were always unlikely to hit the heights last season’s form promised, as Patchway set off with four wins and a draw from a five-match unbeaten opening before the Covid crisis called an abrupt halt to their plans.

He explained: “We lost something like eight or nine of our best players over the close season for various reasons, some to higher level clubs which is understandable. Then we were dealt the injury and unavailability card making for the usual challenges trying to get a new group to gel.

“It’s all still a marked improvement on our 2019-20 season when I joined Patchway with us rock bottom with only three points from our first 12 games, although I’ve always said I feel we’d have stayed up under our own steam had the season not ended early due to Covid.

“As a club, the picture is looking a whole lot rosier. When I first came to Patchway, there was hardly anyone in our reserves capable of making the step up to our firsts. That’s all changed quite dramatically.”

The Scott Park supremo explained: “Jurgen Pali, whose older brother Matteo plays with us, has made the move up from our ressies and shown that dogged Italian spirit in central midfield starting our last two games.

“Barry Phillips is another bright prospect who made his first start for us on Saturday as a left-footed centre-back after working hard in the reserves for his opportunity. He showed all the commitment and desire you’d want in a local derby to help us to a 3-2 victory at Henbury, making some crunching tackles and pinging some sweet long passes.

“I’ve also been delighted with Grant Mathieson’s wholehearted and versatile performances on the right side with goals and assists following his summer move to us from Stoke Rangers.

“In between our best performance of the season in thrashing Quedgeley Wanderers 5-1 at home at the end of October, we did gift Gala Wilton all three of their goals on a very windy afternoon to go down 3-0 there, despite creating a lot of chances of our own. We went on then to lose on penalties at a very good Hartpury University outfit in the GFA Trophy before picking ourselves up to beat Henbury.”

Minihane emphasised: “I’m positive about the direction we’re heading in. There are six or seven lads like Jurgen and Barry performing in our reserves capable of regular first team football.

“We also added a third (A) team in the District League for the first time in something like a decade; so that’s helped create a real club buzz and offered another pathway for the young lads there to progress, along with the sprinkling of older Patchway heads extending their careers!

“We might not be at the top end of the County League table at this time, but there is quality now right across the club and it bodes well. Had we kept last season’s promising squad together, I have no doubt we’d now be challenging Shirehampton hard at the right end of the table.

“We were also disappointed late last week to lose our central midfielder Kyle Ford to Hallen, having played under a handful of games for us since joining recently from Almondsbury.

“It’s always a shame when you lose quality like that which can make a difference,” conceded the Town boss, who is urging a potential No.2, with a “determination to help push Patchway forward,” to get in touch to assist him on matchdays.

Anyone interested can contact Minihane on 07523 108239.

Also in the County League tomorrow, Shirehampton aim to reinforce their position at the top with three more points at Bromley Heath United.

Second-placed Wick, adrift by six points with a game in hand, seek to exploit any Shire slip-up when they go to Sharpness.

Rockleaze Rangers strive to return to winning ways at home against Hardwicke (3pm), whilst Henbury and Little Stoke collide at Arnall Drive for a local derby affair.

Aside from the Rockleaze-Hardwicke fixture, all games kick off at 2pm.
