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

Top of the Table!

  Monday 21st November 2016

Saturday saw us travel to North Somercotes in what we knew to be a tricky match. Despite previous encounters, we knew them to be tough opposition who would never give up, Saturday saw that again. Thanks to goals from John Courtney and Conor Minor, we went into the break 2-0 and comfortable.  We had the majority of the play and could have been further ahead were it not for good goalkeeping and off target shots.  The second half saw Somercotes come out with a different mindset. They attacked from the off and tried to put us off our stride but our defence held firm. The game continued to swing both ways and as the game wore on the scores were level.  Some ridiculous refereeing decisions which affected both sides, certainly spoiled the game as stonewall penalty claims weree denied and corners and throw-ins mysteriously went the wrong way.  Both sides suffered as a result of poor decision-making. The ultimate irony proved to be the deciding factor though. What looked like a routine goal kick for Somercotes was given as a corner for United. We felt a little bit of justice in this as we had an absolute, clear as day penalty turned down leading up to this. As the ball swung over, Alex Kendrick rose above and glanced a header into the corner - 3-2 United.  Fantastic finish to cap off the game and a result which took us to the top of the table with two games in hand!

This coming Saturday we travel to the team we replaced at the top - North Thoresby. A win for us gives us daylight, a win for N Thoresby puts them back on top.  A cracking game it promises to be!
