    It's all in a good Cause, Way down in Derbyshire

    October 14th: Grantham Town (A) (16/46) It was Grantham who took the early lead this time as on the 11th minute L.Shaw curled the ball into the top corner to send the few people in the crowd wild. Ten minutes later they had another chance as my defence failed to deal with a simple cross but J.Reynolds managed to save the day with a fine save. Grantham carried on the forward pressure and on the 41st minute J.Reynolds again saved the day with a world class save. The second half was much the same with Grantham piling forward and on the 63rd minute they tore my defence apart again with a great team move but J.Reynolds saved well again. Twelve minutes later we finally had our first effort as M.Newsham headed straight into the keepers arms from a M.Williams cross. With nine minute remaining in the game we grabbed the equaliser as H.Limb slotted in from close range after the Grantham keeper flapped at a C.Morrison shot. An undeserved point Grantham Town 1-1 Matlock Town L.Shaw 11 / H.Limb 81 J.Reynolds, J.Doyle, A.Yates, D.Wiley, K.Wallace (M.Ellroy), C.Morrison, M.Williams, T.Cribley, M.Templeton, R.Holland (M.Newsham), H.Limb Attendance: 192 (39)

    It's not a Fantasy at all for the Rejects and The Broken XI

    Hardly Athletic began the half and went straight on the attack with L.Shaw crossing the ball into the area but M.Noble headed straight into the hands of D.Ospina. On the 52nd minute the first goal of the game was finally score as C.Chambers crossed into the area and J.Ward-Prowse half volleyed the ball past the outstretched arms of D.Ospina. Straight after the goal The Broken XI made a triple change as D.Beasley, K.Nemeth and B.Mayoral came on for P.Lahm, C.Gardner and D.Sturridge. On the 56th minute the next goal was scored as L.Messi played the ball to the feet of B.Afobe who ran through the defence and dinked the ball over the onrushing D.Ospina. After the goal Hardly Athletic made a change with J.Cork being replaced by W.Hughes. On the hour mark Hardly Athletic had yet another chance as J.Ward-Prowse passed the ball to the feet of M.Noble who crossed to the edge of the area and L.Messi lashed the ball straight into the arms of D.Ospina. Five minutes later the next goal was scored as S.Tibbling played a one two with K.Nemeth who fired towards goal but J.Terry somehow managed to divert the ball past J.Butland for a comical own goal. On the 69th minute Hardly Athletic were awarded a penalty after B.Afobe was brought down in the area by A.Ba much to the disgust of Guilherme who was lucky not to get a yellow card for his protests. A.Vidal stepped up for the penalty and hit past D.Ospina with so much power that the keeper stood little chance of saving it. Four minutes later it was 4-1 as W.Hughes played the ball to B.Afobe who then passed it onto L.Messi who grabbed a goal his performance deserved. With ten minutes remaining in the game The Broken XI grabbed another goal as J.Ward-Prowse hit a powerful cross into the area but Douglas managed to head the ball past D.Ospina for the second own goal of the game. Hardly Athletic made a couple of changes after the goal with J.Gomez and T.Abraham coming on for M.Holgate and B.Afobe. On the 83rd minute The Broken XI has the chance to pull a goal back as Guilherme slotted the ball between the defence and C.Ronaldo fired against the upright after beating the defence to the ball. Five minutes later Hardly Athletic had another chance to score as T.Abraham was brought down in the area by Douglas who was luckily only given a yellow card, A.Vidal stepped up for his second penalty and tried the same trick with a thunderous effort but he screwed it over the crossbar. The final chance of the game came to C.Ronaldo who chested down and volleyed a S.Tibbling cross towards goal but J.Butland produced a brilliant save to deny him what would have been the goal of the match Hardly Athletic 5-1 The Broken XI J.Ward-Prowse 52, B.Afobe 56, A.Vidal 69 pen, L.Messi 73, Douglas 80 og / J.Terry 65 og Hardly Athletic: J.Butland, C.Chambers, M.Holgate (80-J.Gomez), J.Terry (capt), L.Shaw, A.Vidal, J.Cork (57-W.Hughes), M.Noble, J.Ward-Prowse, L.Messi, B.Afobe (80-T.Abraham) The Broken XI: D.Ospina, D.Bocanegra, Douglas, A.Ba, P.Lahm (53-D.Beasley), Guilherme, J.Allen, S.Tibbling, C.Gardner (53-K.Nemeth), D.Sturridge (53-B.Mayoral), C.Ronaldo (capt) Booked: Douglas (The Broken XI) Attendance: 90,000 Stats: Hardly Athletic: Man of Match: Lionel Messi (9.1) Worst Player: Jack Cork (6.6) The Broken XI; Man of Match: Philipp Lahm (6.9) Worst Player: David Ospina (5.7)
  10. April 2nd: Bolivia (Hernando Siles, La Paz) World Cup Qualifying (SAM) (6/18) A dire game for the fans that watched as we struggled with the basics of the game and it took till the 43rd minute for my side to have the first chance of the game as N.Schiappacasse headed wide of the post from a L.Torreira cross. The second half wasn't much better with both my side and the Bolivian side failing to get out of the middle third of the pitch. With eight minutes remaining in the game though the winner was scored as D.Laxalt hit a speculative effort from distance which bounced in front of the keeper and over his shoulder for the win. A poor game for the fans Bolivia 0-1 Uruguay D.Laxalt 82 D.Ferreira, F.Fernandez (R.Gonzalez), R.Diaz, J.Gimenez (capt), G.Silva, S.Vina (D.Poyet), M.Arambarri, L.Torreira, D.Laxalt, N.Lopez, N.Schiappacasse (R.Torres) Booked: M.Arambarri, R.Diaz The two wins have moved us up to 3rd in the table three points behind leaders Brazil. We are four points clear of the play-off spot and seven points clear of not qualifying, however there is a long way to go before the end of qualifying April 10th: The World Rankings sees us moving up to 6th whilst Argentina remain in 1st. The most improved nation is Palestine who moved from 129th to 109th May 15th: We remain in 6th place in the World Rankings with Argentina still top. The most improved nation is Curacao who went from 90th to 85th

However after the goal my players sat back and failed to register a simple effort on target throughout the first half. The second half was ten minutes old when we finally had our next chance as H.Limb ran through the defence with ease but his final effort went just wide of the post. On the 77th minute the final chance of the occurred as H.Limb rose above the defence and headed a H.Vince cross just over the crossbar. Rushall Olympic 0-1 Matlock Town R.Holland 6 J.Reynolds, J.Doyle, A.Yates, D.Wiley, K.Wallace, J.Jackson, M.Williams, H.Vince, M.Templeton, R.Holland, H.Limb Attendance: 272 (17)
