Good win at Flackwell

Posted: September 12th, 2011 by Fergus

PTGFC Reserves  2  -  1  Flackwell Heath Reserves

It’s 09:49 am on a Saturday morning in September and I receive a message from Albert “I’ve just made myself a traditional Christmas dinner, good preparation for football? maybe not, but That’s. How. I. Roll.” Another message flashes through almost instantly “Albert sees the tawdry, unwanted orphanage of convention and burns it down with the matchbox of individuality. Today we destroy Flackwell, tomorrow we hunt geese.”

Saturday 10th September saw the visit of Flackwell Heath Reserves to French Meadows for the highly anticipated clash, a number of question marks surrounded this fixture however the main one on everyone’s mind was; How long would Weedon last at left back? I drew 15mins in the sweep stake.

No joy in Berkshire

Thatcham United Reserves 3 – 1 Penn & Tylers Green FC

It was not to be. Despite a battling performance Penn & Tylers Green FC had to return home empty handed. Against a strong Thatcham United Reserves side, who shaded the territorial advantage in the first half, Penn & Tylers Green FC did not let them turn that advantage into anything tangible. In fact shots on goal in the first half were about even.

Solid start for the Reserves

Penn & Tylers Green FC 1 – 1 Ascot United

A packet of Marks & Spencer’s All Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies, a goblet of crème de menthe & ‘The Best of Color Me Badd’, you guessed it, its the contents of Alberts kit bag. But away from that, Penn & Tylers Green Reserves are back in action.

The early team news out of French Meadows sent a shock wave through the streets of Penn & Tylers Green FC with the inclusion of star attacker Graham Potts taking up residence between the sticks for the home team. This was unfortunately forced upon Penn & Tylers Green FC when the first five options were rendered unavailable, no worries Platty has assured everyone that G.Potts is some sort of Utility Man who will be delighted to take the gloves.

Woodley Town 1 – 4 Penn & Tylers Green FC

One hundred years ago, Woodley was a small rural community with less than one thousand inhabitants. Fifty years ago, although the population had grown a little, the majority of the homes were not on main drainage and there was very little street lighting. Bread and milk were delivered by horse and cart and on Sunday afternoons the Muffin Man made his rounds with a tray of muffins on his head and announcing his presence by ringing a handbell.

Today Woodley is a thriving town of approximately 26,000 residents and sits between Reading and Wokingham. Woodley is a diverse community with a busy shopping precinct, weekly markets and two leisure centres. Woodley is also home to the Museum of Berkshire Aviation and has a rich military aviation history and a football club.

Penn & Tylers Green 3 – 3 Maidenhead United Reserves

R. Sepede 10, 86,  Cohen 79                             Sankoh 32, 90+1,  Adeniji 41

Maidenhead were the visitors to French School Meadows today and they played out a six goal thriller. Penn went in to the game unbeaten in two however they knew it wouldn’t be a walkover.

The first chance of the game came in the 5th minute when Maidenhead’s Adeyinka Adeniji’s shot was well saved by Matt Cannings in the Penn goal. Maidenhead looked threatening early on but the breakthrough came from the home side. A dangerous free kick was swung into the box by Chris Hurst, it was cleared only as far as Rino Sepede who’s deflected shot found its way into the bottom corner. 1 – 0.

Abingdon United Reserves take all points on their first visit to Penn

Posted: August 17th, 2011 by Fergus

Penn entertained Abingdon United Reserves, whose first team play in the Southern League S&W, and it was not to be a happy night for PTGFC as Abingdon, based on their dominant first half display, deservedly took all three points back to Oxfordshire.

Penn started slowly and Abingdon took the lead after three minutes when they launched a quick decisive move down the left flank and whipped in a low cross which was clinically despatched into the back of the Penn net. Wake up call? No! Penn proceeded to give the ball away and struggled to put any passing moves together through lack of communication or otherwise. Penn seemed to be waiting for things to happen instead of anticipating outcomes, and consequently when opportunities did arise we were too slow to react, which happened all too often.

Great start to the season

Rino celebrates the season's opener

A new Penn & Tylers Green FC took on the newly promoted Lambourn Sports FC.

The visitors started at a good pace very eagerly and keen, which was expected. But Penn & Tylers Green FC worked well when Antonio Sepede flicked the ball on and a Wayne Booth header resulted in the vibrant Rino Sepede scoring early on, probably the fastest goal in the league today.

Penn & Tylers Green FC settled down and played well for the next 15 minutes then came a sucker punch from Lambourn Sports FC. The ball was picked up 25 yards Penn & Tylers Green FC did not react and an excellent strike resulted in an equaliser for the visitors.

A game of two halves!!!!!!!

Penn & Tylers Green FC Reserves 2 – 2  Walters Leisure FC

This was a game of two halves. One set of eleven players played the first half and a completely different eleven came onto the second half. The first half started well and Penn & Tylers Green FC made all the running and although a good goal from Dean Munday put the Reserves ahead the performance deteriorated more.

Nothing Holy Today!

Penn & Tylers Green 1 – 6  Holyport FC

This was a tough test for Penn & Tylers Green this afternoon. Holyport who won promotion from Division One (East) last season looked very much like a Premier Division Team. They were sharp, strong and quick.

Penn & Tylers Green FC battled and never gave up but today we came up against a better side. It was a good test and no one let he side down and there were still lots of positive aspect in the game. It was just one of those days.
