19th September 2020 - Patchway Town overcome early dismissal to beat Gala Wilton

Ron Holpin

The two teams Gala Wilton and Patchway Town leading the table at the start of today met at Scott Park with the home side Patchway running out winners by the odd goal in three. The home side started well but after 15 minutes found themselves down to ten men when Mo Jeng was sent off. However, that did not deter them as they took the lead on 22 minutes from a rasping drive from Phil Vice that was on target but took a big deflection of a Gala defender to end up in the back of the net. The lead only lasted eight minutes when Adam Loveridge fired past Sam Burgess to level the score. Gala’s Ryan Dobbins had a couple of half chances but was unable to beat Burgess in the home goal. Patchway sealed the three points in the 75th minute when Sidou Bojang squared the ball across gaol for Fin Thompson to finish off.

An exiting local derby at Quedgeley Wanderers where today’s visitors were Hardwicke from just down the road. Wanderers Sean Lawson had two early attempts on goal which were well saved by the visitor’s keeper. Hardwicke’s first shot on goal by Sam Mandes was blocked by Kyle Knight. Wanderers took the lead on 31 minutes from a ball squared back by Kyle James Bryan that was pushed a way by the keeper but Sean Lawson then fired it home from 30 yards. Home keeper Nathan Charnock then brought of a great save to deny Toby Webb from levelling a few minutes later. On 40 minutes Wanderers increased their lead when Kyle James-Bryan netted a second. Hardwicke pulled a goal back right on half time from a free kick taken around the half-way line, that found Sam Mendes to volley home from 10 yards. Midway into the second half Nathan Payne struck a fierce shot on goal but Hardwicke’s keeper pulled off a great save. However, Hardwicke levelled the score on 75 minutes through Rob Hine. Who then gave away a penalty in the 81st minute and got himself sent off doing so. Louis Peyton stepped up to take the spot kick to put Wanderers back into the lead, but with just 5 minutes left Hardwicke hit back to equalise when Jordan Dowdeswell scored from a corner. The visitors almost snatched all three points in the last minute but Charnock saved well from Dowdeswell.

AEK Boco have started the season well with two wins under their belt. They beat today’s visitors Little Stoke 3-1. The home side had a very strong wind behind them in the first half and took the lead on 15 minutes when Brad Wheadon scored from a corner. A long ball from Sid Patridge found Frank Taylor-Fox who then set up Cory Langdon for a second on 18 minutes. On 20 minutes Alfie Clarke was sent to the Sin Bin and within minutes Little Stoke pulled a goal back when Jaiden Holver scored from the edge of the box. After 32 minutes the home side were 3-1 up after Liam Powell sent a great through ball for Langdon to net his second. Just before the break Stoke keeper Connolly Jarrett pulled of a magnificent save to deny Wheadon getting a second. The second half Little Stoke were much the better side and created several good chances but Boco keeper Chris Humphries was in fine form and kept them out. Although Stoke rattled the crossbar in the second half they were unable to find the back of the net and the scoreline remained 3-1 to Boco.

Bromley Heath United start to the season is played two and lost two and as yet have been unable to find the back of their opponent’s net. It was a scrappy start with both sides missing good chances to open the scoring and the score-line reflected that as they went into the break goalless. Ruardean Hill Rangers broke the deadlock on 55 minutes when Brian Burke powered his shot home from close in. Then just 4 minutes later Rangers netted a second after a good build up Luke Johnson finished it off. On 75 minutes Bromley’s Joe Goss almost snatched a goal back when he turned in the box and fired in a low shot but keeper Underwood save well.

Frampton United took the lead after just 5 minutes at home to Hanham Athletic but had to be satisfied with a draw as they let the game slip 2 minutes from the end. Fraser Wilson put Ryan Ford in to round the keeper after just 5 minutes but failed to improve on that score-line again in the first 45 minutes. The visitors had a great chance to level from a corner but shot straight at the Frampton keeper. A Charley Hobbs break down the wing on 52 minutes ended with a shot that just skimmed past the far post. The visitors had several other chances to score during the second half but left it really late when Luke Corbiere headed home in the 88th minute.

Shirehampton’s first outing in the Marcliff Gloucestershire County Football League was a local derby with near neighbours Henbury and they got off to a winning start with a 2-0 victory. Ryan Crouch headed in a Charles Harris cross on 11 minutes. A second on 30 minutes a 20-yard drive from George Loud gave the home side a comfortable 2-0 lead. Just before the break Charles Harris thundered a shot against the Henbury crossbar. The visitors were much improved in the second half and thought they did hit the back of the home net it was ruled out for offside. Then just a few minute later Henbury had Andrew Dickinson dismissed and that basically ruined any chance of the visitors getting back in the game.

On 5 minutes Sharpness' Marley Thomas played the ball down line to Fin Small who crossed for Dan Gayner who miscued his shot. In the 10th minute a Sharpness corner was cleared by Wick and with Nath Freeman misjudging the ball, Wick’s Jordan Scott pounced on the loose ball and found himself one on one with Dan Hobbs, Hobbs saved the initial shot but the ball fell back to Scott to put Wick into the lead. The next attack from the home side saw Tom Frankham play in Marley Thomas who crossed to Finn Small but his shot was blocked. Wicks Jordan Scott then set up Mike Hardiman but he shot straight at the keeper. Hobbs then pulled off two great saves first to deny Ben Harris and then the rebound from Nathan Gore. Marley Thomas crosses to Fin Small but his header was saved easily by Ash Wintle. The home side grabbed a point in the very last minute of the game when Tom Paterson chipped a ball through to Sam Strickland who’s shot was saved by Wintle but Marley Thomas was on hand to slam the ball home.

Rockleaze Rangers v Broadwell Amateurs took place at Tytherington Rocks ground due to their own ground at UWE being closed at present. It was a tight affair with very few chances created and both defences well on top so cancelling each other out. Rangers had plenty of possession but failed to break down a stubborn Broadwell defence. Both sides had several shots off target but both keepers had very little to do throughout the 90 minutes and it finished 0-0.

25th June 2020 - Update From FA on Step 7 Leagues

James Earl - FA

1. Step 5 / 6 Leagues Meeting

As has been widely reported, there was a National League System Step 5 / 6 Leagues Meeting held via Microsoft Teams on Friday.

There were reports via Social Media and other reporting mechanisms that there were references to ‘Step 7’ in that meeting regarding the 2020-21 Season.

This was not the case – I attach the Slides from the meeting for your information. Our Scenario Planning has explored Steps 1-6.

Regional NLS Feeder Leagues are sanctioned by the relevant County FA and as such, the Guidance published by your County FAs (based on the Grassroots Guidance) around restart will assist your Leagues in their planning.

There are, of course many ‘what ifs’ in the planning we are all undertaking. For example, if we were to have a heavily impacted Season due to a later restart, we may need to consider consistent approaches to Regional NLS Feeder Leagues to assist with Promotion Candidates to Step 6, however this is not yet been undertaken in detail. If we need to consider such an approach we will advise.

2. Step 7 to 6 Promotion Candidates

We will be writing to all of the 2019-20 Step 7 promotion candidate Clubs to inform them that:

  • a. The Leagues Committee agreed at their meeting on 16th June that in line with no Promotion and Relegation following the expungement of Season 2019-20, that also Vacancies at Step 6 will not be filled by upward movement of clubs. This also falls in line with our guidance to Leagues that Constitutions will remain the same for 2020-21
  • b. That application will be carried forward to 2020-21 Season. This will not deter any new applications from any Club in a Regional NLS Feeder League by the usual process.
3. Ratification of 2020-21 Constitutions

Thank you to all of you for sending through your draft Constitutions. I appreciate many of you are wishing to know when these will be ratified. The ratification is on Agenda for the next Leagues Committee on July 14th. In regards to AGMs. Leagues will be able to decide how best they wish to manage this either by delaying AGM till after this date or continuing with the current AGM and either put a note that Constitution’s will need future approval by any agreed means. Due to the unprecedented times we are in, we do not think that anyone is going to raise the point that AGM’s are being held after the normal deadline. The FA nor County FA’s are going to raise any concern by a delayed AGM during the pandemic.

FA Covid-19 Planning for NLS

Note that this document is planning for the National League System and has been attached as it's referenced by the FA in their message, this League will work with the Gloucestershire FA on the restart.

Peter Langley

Following interviews, I am delighted to advise you all that Graham McNulty has been appointed as the new Referees Appointment Officer.

We look forward to Graham joining the Management Committee and wish him every success in the role. I hope that all clubs will also support Graham.

An introduction from Graham

Firstly, and most importantly I very much hope you are all well in these unfamiliar times we all find ourselves in. Let us hope that we are all back to normal sooner rather than later.

May I take this opportunity to introduce myself. I have just been appointed as the new Referee Appointments Officer for Gloucestershire County League and I want to provide you all with a little background information about myself. I very much look forward to meeting with you all in person over the coming months and throughout the duration of the season.

To date I currently hold the role of Match Appointment Officer for the Gloucestershire Under 18 mid-week Floodlit league, as well as the referee secretary for the Cheltenham Youth League and I am a member of the referees committee at the Gloucestershire FA. In addition, I am the mentor co-ordinator for the North of Gloucestershire as well as a tutor/coach for newly qualified and active referees. In addition, I am operating at Level 4 referee status and intend to continue with this.

I very much look forward to meeting you all and working with you next season and beyond.
