Advanced in the Cup

  Wednesday 08th February 2017

Saturday saw us face Sutton Rovers away in what we knew would be a tough fixture. In our previous encounter, Sutton emerged as 2-0 winners on a day when we just didn't perform well - this game was about making amends.  With 7 regulars missing this was going to be an even more difficult task.

With a goal coming from Zak Bray, we claimed a place in the semi-final and an encouraging, dogged performance too.  This weekend sees us face Chapel Swifts.  We have three remaining league games and are closing in on the title, it's all about focus now!

Another Three Points

  Monday 30th January 2017

Saturday saw us face a tough, resilient Alford Town side in the league.  A win was required at all costs in our push for the title. The game saw both sides test each other, both goalkeepers pulling off some great stops to deny their opposition. The deadlock was finally broken in the closing stages of the first half when a corner driven was headed home by Keaton Grainger. The second half saw more of the same, with both sides pushing hard, but as the game wore on, it was United looking more likely to score. The pressure paid off when the score was doubled by Keaton Grainger grabbing his second of the game.

The final stages of the game were played out fairly evenly but the result was right. Another three points for United who are now 6 points clear with a game in hand. With only three league games remaining for us, it's all about focus. The end is in sight, we just need to stay on our game, but we face a tough test when we play Sutton Rovers in our league fixture. They are the only team with any real hope of catching us and three points against them would pretty much decide things. Both sides will be looking for a win.

Great Start to the New Year

  Monday 09th January 2017

Saturday saw us face Scamblesby at home in the league. We played them in our first league match, winning 8-0 but they have since rallied and pulled some impressive results so we expected a tougher match.

Although we started the brighter of the two teams, we went behind on 10 mins when a free kick bounced awkwardly and ended up in the net depsite Jack almost clawing it away. Our response however, was instant. We were back on level terms within 2 minutes thanks to an acrobatic finish from Alex Kendrick. From this point on United took the game to Scamblesby.

With further goals coming from Alex Kendrick, a stunner from Arun Gray, Rhys Mansell, Keiran Rayner-Mistry, Keaton Grainger and Johnny Hodson United can be very happy with the resut today. A solid performance from everyone and a good three points in our march for the title. With Sutton Rovers losing, this hands us a massive advantage in the final part of the league season.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Resounding Win Against Chapel

  Sunday 11th December 2016

Saturday saw us play local rivals Chapel Swifts in the league. Although the entire length of the table was between both teams at the start of the match, it didn't show from the determination shown by Chapel in the first 15 minutes.  They played some nice flowing football, keeping the ball when possible and making probing runs at the United goal.  The United defence held firm and a resolute Jack Minor in goal pulled off a couple of excellent saves to deny throughout the match, but it was United to turned in the better performance.  Confident play to a man and yet again, fantastic work from the front men to keep Chapel on the back foot.  The first goal from Keaton Grainger typified the United mindset.  A loose ball from the visiting keeper was pounced on by Keaton who drove forward to finish.  Fantastic footwork from both John Courtney and Ryan O'Loughin yet again to cause problems to the visiting defence.

The game proved to be a great example of picking off teams.  Chances were created from a combination of pressing and capitalising on mistakes. The final score of 6-1 could easily have been higher were it not for the agility of the visiting keeper.  A great performance and another three points to keep us top of the table.

Daylight at the Top of the League

  Sunday 27th November 2016

We travelled to N Thoresby last Saturday knowing that this game was 'six pointer'.  The winner moved clear of the team who would be in second place. We were both on the same points although our far superior goal difference and games in hand gave us the advantage.  We attacked the game from the beginning with a determination to move clear at the top.  Two goals from Ryan O'Loughlin gave us just what we needed and are now 3 points clear and have 2 games in hand.  The race most certainly isn't over though - far from it.  There are some tough games to come which will test us but at this point, we're in the driving seat and masters of our own destiny.

A great team performance saw us take the required 3 points. The full match report can be found on the Reports page
