25th January 2020 - Henbury win derby at Patchway Town

Ron Holpin

A local derby at Scott Park where Patchway Town played host to Henbury . Both teams were desperate for the win with Town holding up the table and Henbury just a few places above them. The home side had most of the possession in the first 45 minutes but only managed one effort on goal. Henbury’s Kane Manning’s had a great chance to open the scoring on 3 minutes when clear on goal but keeper Sam Burgess smothered his shot. Then came the shot from Luke Garbacz for the home side that the Henbury keeper pushed away. Adam Rosser’s 25-yard drive had Burgess diving full length to push it round the post on 12 minutes. Just 2 minutes later a long free kick into the Patchway box was not dealt with and Kane Manning’s put Henbury ahead but only just as Burgess got a hand to the shot but could not prevent it going in. The only other effort during the first half fell to Patchway’s Lewis Toop but his effort went wide.

Right from the restart Henbury could have increased their lead twice, both efforts coming from Kane Manning’s who shot wide with the first effort and his second was really well saved by Burgess. An in-swinging corner from the left by Patchway had Henbury keeper Lewis Jefferies punching clear and at the other end George Loud was just wide of the target. Although the home side saw plenty of the ball but failed to create chances when they reached the last third. On 66 minutes the home side went 2-0 down when Kan Manning’s scored his second. Both Josh Morris and Luke Garbacz had chances in the second half for Patchway but their shots went way over the bar. On 84 minutes Kane Manning’s missed an open goal that would have made it 3-0 and a hattrick. A minute later Burgess was in action again when he pushed away an Adam Rosser shot on target and then in the 91st minute Jensen Manning’s netted a third for Henbury to make it a very miserable day for the home side.

Little Stoke bounced back after a series of defeats lately wit a 5-1 victory over Quedgeley Wanderers . Wanderers actually took the lead on 12 minutes when Henry Birkett hit a 25-yard drive into the Little Stoke net. The lead only lasted 2 minutes Stoke equalising from a corner stabbed in by Luke Meacham from 3 yards. Just 3 minutes later the home side were in front when header from the Stoke defence inside their own half found Russ Church to drive a 25-yard shot into the bottom corner. Right-on half-time Russ Church was brought down in the box and Khalil Lamir made it 3-1 from the spot. A volley to the far post then allowed Russ Church to grab his second and put the home side 4-1 up. Jaden Holver completed the scoring with a 45-yard mazy run before lining his shot up from 12 yards to give Little Stoke a convincing win.

AEK Boco lost their home fixture with Sharpness by one goal to nil but had chances throughout the game to have won it. Sharpness had the first chance early on when keeper Joel Manning’s pulled of a great save from a corner. Jake Slocombe hit the crossbar for Boco and Cory Langdon’s effort went just wide. Sam Strickland scored the only goal on 32 minutes for Sharpness. In the second half Boco’s Liam Powell struck the crossbar and Jake Slocombe had his shot cleared off the line by James Higgs. The home sides failure to take their chances may cost them dearly.

Hardwicke recorded a 3-1 victory over todays visitors Broadwell Amateurs and with other results going against them Broadwell have now dropped to second bottom. This game belonged to Hardwicke’s Will Higgins who finished the afternoon with a hattrick. The home side had a good chance in the 8th minute but Richard Mansell’s cross was headed wide by Will Matthews. On 12 minutes Hardwicke took the lead when Higgins won the ball in midfield played a one two with Will Matthews and then drove the ball home. A few minutes later the same combination of Higgins and Matthews saw Higgin’s shot cleared off the line by Lee Hanson. On 20 minutes Hardwicke were awarded a penalty but Richard Mansell’s shot was well saved by Ben Reed in the Broadwell goal. Broadwell had a good chance in the 35th minute but Liam Thomas’s shot was well saved by Tom Kaye. Just a minute later the visitors were level when Steve Belfitt headed in from a free kick. Hardwicke then missed another good chance as Matthews again headed wide from a Higgins cross. Higgins scored his second on 50 minutes when Toby Webb put him clear on goal. Higgins completed his hattrick in the 75th minute Steve Bick put him clear to chip the ball over keeper Reed. Bick himself then had a great chance to make it four but with a one-on-one situation Reed made a great one handed save to keep the ball out.

Ruardean Hill Rangers travelled to Bromley Heath United knowing they needed a win to try and get themselves up the table and win they did - coming away with a 4-2 victory. The home side had the first real chance to score but Jay Malpas was just wide with his header. Rangers went ahead on 28 minutes from a Luke Brown free kick and 3 minutes later went 2-0 up when Steve Clarke turned in the box to fire home. On 38 minutes Bromley pulled a goal back when Dan Fowlers shot was handled in the box and Nathan Rose scored from the penalty spot. Rangers then made it three a minute later Steve Clarke curling his shot past the home keeper. Joe Goss beat the offside on 42 minutes to pull a second goal back for Bromley. Rangers made it hard for the home side in the 55th minute when Luke Brown scored a second free kick from the edge of the box. The home side had a couple of efforts on goal but were unable to find the back of the Rangers net again.

Gala Wilton started well in their home game against Rockleaze Rangers with Rangers keeper Lewis Brodie saving well on two occasions. Then against the run of play Rangers took the lead in the 16th minute a cross into the box saw Sam Bailey nip in to head home. Gala levelled on 22 minutes when Jay Dare sent Martin Smith clear to round Brodie and tap home. Second half Rangers made it 2-1 on 62 minutes with a very good shot from the left side of the box by Mark Ridgeway. Then 6 minutes later Jordan Dent raced clear to make it 3-1. Late in the game Gala’s Ben Sluman had a couple of shots on goal but Lewis Brodie kept them out.

The game between Frampton United and Hanham Athletic was abandoned in the second half when a player from each side was badly hurt and had to go to hospital.

GFA Challenge Trophy Round 3

Wick were drawn at home to Newent Town from the Hellenic League Division 1 West and did themselves proud by winning through to the next round 2-1. Sam Thomas was put clear on goal but his shot was deflected by the keeper. At the other end Mark Morgan-Davis had his header well saved by keeper Joe Pople. Mike Hardiman had a very good chance to put Wick ahead but shot straight into the keeper’s arms. There were several good chances missed by both sides and Sam Thomas missed an open goal heading wide for Wick. Just before the break a great cross in from Jordan Cooper saw Fin Brown finish well to give Newent a 1-0 half time lead. Several more chances were missed in the second half before Sam Thomas levelled the score from 20 yards in the n76th minute and this spurred the home side on to go on and win the game in the 82nd minute when Mike Hardiman netted following a corner.

27th January 2020 - Patchway bosses to do "Everything it takes"

Simon Parkinson

PATCHWAY Town assistant manager Tim Minihane insists he and boss Phil Vice will do "everything it takes" to retain their Marcliff Gloucestershire County League status.

The Scott Park outfit remain precariously placed bottom of the pile and in urgent need of more uplifting afternoons like the one they enjoyed last weekend, when new signing Jamie Packer’s goal on the stroke of half-time proved sufficient to see off hosts Hanham Athletic 1-0 for only a third victory of a tough programme so far.

Former Tytherington Rocks supremo Minihane enthused: "It was our second win since I’ve been involved with Patchway and we were delighted, not least with the clean sheet.

"We played brilliantly in the first half when the Hanham keeper made some great saves and had to, while the second half was more of a battle.

"We’re trying to improve competition for places: a lot of players were getting picked as they had no one else available.

"We do have a good bunch of lads here; no one purposely plays badly. And we haven’t always had the rub of the green."

Minihane reflected: "Against Gala Wilton recently it was nil-nil and we looked good for a point until injuries and a red card for Matty Webb, who has missed our last two games through suspension as a consequence, cost us dear and we ended up losing 3-0.

"We played very well too against Thornbury in the GFA Trophy before losing 4-2 there although we did go on and perform poorly against Boco in the League Cup to lose 3-0 at home when it seemed as though we’d slipped into a few previous bad habits.

"On Saturday we viewed the Hanham game as a must-win one as a victory for them would have taken them 11 points clear of us.

"Instead we reduced the gap to five points and we still have to play them at home. It also kept us within touching distance of Ruardean Hill and Broadwell immediately above us."

Minihane and Co now gear up for another important test tomorrow at home against a tenth-placed Henbury team (2pm) they trail by only seven points.

"We should have five players back for that one and hopefully some new faces in the squad too," the Patchway No.2 revealed.

"It’s important we get squad numbers up as our reserves have been struggling too in the District Senior Division. Fresh faces keep people on their toes and commitment levels up. Passengers are no longer welcome.

"Things have been looking up: we’ve won two, drawn one and lost one of our last four league games. I’m working well with the manager Phil as we have similar ideas when it comes to formations and personnel.

"It bodes well for the rest of the season but we can’t rest on our laurels. We’re confident we can pull away from danger but alert too as there’s much work still to be done."

Minihane acknowledges Patchway as a club have been hit hard by tragedy this season, with the death last summer of ex player and dedicated clubman Jason Franklin followed more recently by the passing of another of the club’s long-serving former players and manager Darren Butt in an M32 car collision on his 40th birthday.

Minihane explained: "Memorial matches were held in honour of Darren at Bradley Stoke Community Centre last Sunday involving friends and former team-mates, including those from Stokeside, Little Stoke and Hallen.

"Hundreds turned up to support it and attend a fund-raising event at Patchway Sports & Social Club afterwards where there was a live band and raffle draws.

"Of course the club continues to extend heartfelt condolences to Darren’s family."
