  1. Yeah, I thought maybe Bury had suffered a few relegations... but then that still wouldn't put them low enough to play in the 1st qualifying round lol
  2. September 2019 Another decent month saw us maintain our first place position in the Combined Counties League Premier Division, opening up a 3 point lead although Guildford City (not a city) do have a game in hand and are only 3 goals worse off in goal difference. With the departure of Jon Taylor (see below), Ashley Fuller got a run out on the left in the first couple of games and although his appearance fee of £50 really makes me weep he did put in some good performances. He provided an assist in the first game against Walton & Hersham, as we comfortably beat the media's 2nd fav
  3. August 2019 Excellent first month of the new season as we surge to the top of the table. Knaphill didn't have a single shot on target as we comfortably dispatched them 2-0 thanks to goals from Ryan Cromie and Kyran Lofthouse. Bedfont Sports put up a bit more resistance despite being reduced to 10-men after 30 minutes with Matt Ruddy (MC, 17) seeing red for a two-footed tackle. There was a strange incident in the game where Chertsey's Kyran Lofthouse and Bedfont's Chris Gosling (AMC, 20) both got injured at the exact same moment in different parts of the pitch seemingly without being

  5. Pre-Season 2019/2020 Not the best pre-season, as several high profile games backfired a bit and we had demoralising draws against lower opposition. We got off to a good start beating parent affiliate club Hampton & Richmond Borough u23's 3-1 but after that it was a couple of frustrating 1-1 draws and poor performances against Claygate Royals (Surrey South Eastern Combination Junior Division One) and Royal Holloway Old Boys (Kent County Football League Division One Central and East). I arranged a glamour friendly against West Ham United u23's in which we got beaten heavily 4-0 BUT

  7. Thanks, it was better than I was expecting, it looks like a tough league to get out of though so a lot of improvement is needed.
  8. Last update concerning England for the 2018/2019 season, taking a look at how Hersham FC did in their second season once I left the club. They went on to overtake Chessington K.C 'A' to win the Surrey South Eastern Combination Junior Division Four with both clubs gaining promotion to Division Three next year. They dominated the league stats for the 2018/2019 season- Jordaan Robinson finished as the top scorer with 11 goals in 14(3) appearances in the league (18 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions). Max Paterson was third on the list with 6 league goals in 16(1) appearances. J
  9. England 2018/2019 Review Part Three Kenny Jackett's Bolton Wanderers returned to the Championship after just one season in League One, finishing as champions and 7 points clear from second placed Southend United. 6th place Portsmouth beat 5th place AFC Wimbledon in the playoffs to become the third team going up. Yet again two newly promoted clubs went straight back down in Yeovil Town and Mansfield Town, with Bury and Rotherham United joining them in League Two next season. Long(ish) serving manager Keith Hill saw his Rochdale side promoted to League One as ch
  10. England 2018/2019 Review Part Two Sunderland, managed by Slaven Bilic made it back to the Premier League at the second time of asking as winners of the Championship. They were joined by David Adams' Wolverhampton Wanderers, who were spearheaded by the evergreen 35-year old striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (14 goals in 45 Appearances). Nathan Jones' Leeds United overcame Aitor Karanka's Stoke City and Jaap Stam's Preston North End in the playoffs to end Leeds United's 15 year exodus from the English top flight. At the other end of the table, it was misery for two newly
  11. England 2018/2019 Review Part One Pep Guardiola's Manchester City made it back-to-back Premier League titles, finishing 9 points ahead of local rivals Manchester United, still managed by Jose Mourinho. Arsene Wenger left Arsenal at the end of last season to manage France, with former Sporting Lisbon manager Jorge Jesus taking over and leading the Gunners to 3rd place. The top four was completed by Tottenham Hotspur, with star striker Harry Kane being awarded the Premier League Golden Boot with 20 goals, ahead of Swansea City's Wilfried Bony (18). Chelsea manager Zinedi
  12. April/May 2019 There was only one game played in May so I decided to combine the last two months of the season into one update. It began with an eventual blowout win over Sheerwater, despite the game being finely balanced at 1-1 after 63 minutes. Matt Rodrigues-Barbosa and Ryan Cromie (off the bench) added four goals in the final twenty minutes to leave the oppositon shellshocked. We were then subsequently outclassed by eventual league winners North Greenford United 4-2. Their strike force has been lethal all season with Silvano Obeng (23) scoring 36 goals in the league (41 in
  13. March 2019 The month started off with a decent 2-2 draw against league leaders Whyteleafe, but it could have been better had Matt Rodrigues-Barbosa not missed a 3rd minute penalty. He did make up for it by scoring our second goal in the 70th minute, with Adrian Burditt, who was only starting due to Alex Malins' suspension, scoring the other. I gave some debuts to the youth intake players in the second game against Westfield, with Chris Woozley and Jon Taylor starting and Ross Chandler coming on for the second half. Unfortunately this backfired somewhat with Woozley going off in
  14. February 2019 Another decent month in the league, although we lost our mini unbeaten streak in the last game. This was very much a month of the loanees really pulling their weight, with Kevin Fell and Jonny Gill finding the net in the win over Balham and Danny Walters scoring two against CB Hounslow United. Alexander Winters also got an assist in that game. Matt Rodrigues-Barbosa continued his hot form with another three goals this month and Eddie Salmon, who seems to have dropped away slightly in the goalscoring chart got one goal that was deemed good enough for runner-up in the Go
  15. January 2019 Good month for Chertsey Town F.C. as we rise up to 9th in the table. Bedfont Sports had Left-Back Brian Fowler (16) sent off after just 38 minutes when already 1-0 down and couldn't really recover from that, as Matt Rodrigues-Barbosa scored a hat-trick for a 3-0 win. He rescued the club in the second game against Windsor with an injury time equaliser to salvage a 2-2 draw and then scored his 5th goal of the month with the winner against Cove F.C. in a game where the lead changed hands three times. For his efforts Rodrigues-Barbosa was awarded the Combined Counties Leagu
  16. December 2018 (Part Two) A very hectic month of fixtures for Chertsey Town F.C. With the squad being so small it was tough just to field 11 fit players in each game, let alone worrying about best formations and tactics. A come from behind 3-2 win over Epsom & Ewell was a good start to my reign as manager, with Eddie Salmon scoring a brace, however central defender Ross Chandler got himself sent off in injury time to place further strain on the wafer thin squad. In the second match Guildford City (Is Guildford a city? I thought it was just a big town with a cathedral?) we gave up

  18. December 2018 (Part One?) You'll notice the fixtures for December haven't been completed yet, there's a reason for that. In terms of the games that were played, there was a disappointing shootout loss to Sporting Kitz in the Junior Cup with Max Paterson missing a penalty inside the 90 minutes and a further two missed penalties in the shootout by Jed Akrigg and Dennis Carroll. We rebounded in the league for the next game, beating Wandgas Vets 2-1 thanks to an injury time winner from Joe Sowden following a goal in the first minute from Jordaan Robinson. PLAYERS OUT Mi
  19. November 2018 Another decent month with just the hammering away at league leaders Chessington K.C 'A' as the main negative, along with losing Angus Hillier to a broken ankle in the same game. He's expected to be out of action for 4-5 months. Progress in both the cups, thanks to some late Jordaan Robinson heroics against Dover House Lions in the rearranged Junior Cup tie and a Man of the Match performance off the bench by Conor Butcher with two goals against Warlingham in the Intermediate Cup. Jordaan Robinson was again the standout performer with 7 goals and 2 assists in 6 gam
  20. Ha! Definitely need to fit in some tanning bed sessions in training I think, must be an option for that somewhere.....
  21. October 2018 Another unbeaten month, but yet another draw that might hurt us at the end of the season. Jason High was sent off after 41 minutes against Old Plymouthians Reserves after which we struggled so a draw was a decent result really I suppose. Jordaan Robinson scored another 3 goals this month, one against Woodmansterne Hyde Reserves in the league and another two against Woodmansterne Hyde senior team in the Intermediate Cup to take his tally to 10 in all competitions. There was a cup game arranged against Dover House Lions this month in the Junior Cup, but the game
  22. September 2018 An unbeaten month to start the season but it could have been even better. Jordaan Robinson has picked up where he left off last year with 7 goals in 6 games, including a hat-trick in the opener against Beckenham. I decided to play Joe Sowden as an inverted winger on the left to get him and Darnell Joynes into the same starting XI. Sowden had an impressive debut with an assist and a 7.5 rating, but he then twisted his ankle in the second game against AFC Ewell Reserves and was ruled out for 6-7 weeks. We were lucky to scrape past Tooting Bec 'B' in the 1st round o
  23. The squad for the 2018/2019 season. Four of the new signings go straight into the starting XI, while the fifth, Joe Sowden (MR) will probably take Darnell Joynes' place at some point, but given how well he performed for us last year I wanted him to at least start the new season. For that same reason I felt I couldn't really replace strikers Max Paterson and Jordaan Robinson yet, with the pair scoring 35 goals between them in all competitions. Jason High was retained as club captain, with Jed Akrigg once again vice-captain. New signing Joe Sowden was made 3rd choice because of his 14 Leade
