Let’s put this is to some sort of perspective. Our second from bottom Division 5 boys beat the only other Division 5 side Stokenchurch 4-0. All of the other teams we played including Marlow, Flackwell Heath and AFC Lightning, all play their regular football in the higher Booker Wholesale leagues. In total, out of 5 games we won 3, drew 1 and lost one. Accumulating an astounding 7 goals and 10 points overall. This then put us into the semi final play-offs against one of the two Holtspur sides. After a tough battle we eventually lost by a single goal to nil. A fantastic achievement and a well deserved pat on the back for all the effort this season.
Beaconsfield 0 – 6 PTGFC U15
They deemed this day “Destination Sunday” in the football world and so it proved for the Booker Wholesale League Division 2. After a long hard season the depleted Penn team turned up at a windy Farnham Park to play Beaconsfield, who held us to a 0 – 0 draw earlier in the season. With the news filtering through teletext (OK, my phone) some 30 minutes prior to kick off that Burnham had lost 2 – 0 at home to Thame Boys we knew that a win today would secure us the Division 2 title.
Chairman Tony Hurst formally opened the evening with the customary season awards for the Senior Section followed by wishing the outgoing First Team Manager Matt Miller all the best with his new club next season.
The awards this year went as follows:
Graham gave about 70 of us a very enjoyable evening with his stories of Premiership Players and of course the three yellow cards. The evening was full of memorabilia being auctioned, competitions and a load of funny experiences. My thanks to all of the organisers who worked hard to make the evening a success including a very tasty Chile Concarne. Graham who comes from Tring may well be back in the clubhouse in the coming years as he manages his son’s side as they are looking to move over to the Wycombe league.
Chairman Tony Hurst, on behalf of the whole club, is delighted to welcome John Sepede as new first team Manager at Penn & Tylers Green F.C. to succeed the departing Matt Miller.
Penn & Tylers Green FC triumph in U14 League Cup
League Cup Final
PTGFC U14s 1 – 0 Prestwood Colts
The under 14s ended their fine season, winning the league cup on Sunday at Burnham F.C. The dry spring weather, and being the 4th of 4 games on Sunday did not contribute to a good playing surface. But as they say, same for both sides. Prestwood started slightly the better, forcing keeper Cam Barr into a fine early save after Just 5 minutes. Four minutes later Penn took the lead, Ben Smith had his free kick charged down, only to see Billy Franks shot meet the same end. The ball fell to captain Jack Pearce who’s side pass reached Stephen Locke.
Amersham Athletic 1 – 2 Penn & Tylers Green U15
A Thursday evening with the sun shining, the wind blowing and the pitch rock hard one could have been forgiven for assuming this was a pre-season friendly game and not a promotion decider between 2 teams who would grace Division 1. Penn arrived in the usual dribs and drabs with tales of their past few days in the real world (they were all on work experience and struggling to deal with an 8 hour day) and proceeded to warm up as if this was a Tuesday night training session until cone marker superiare, Stuart Rarity, got them focused on the job in hand.
Annual General Meeting
Penn & Tylers Green FC 27th June 2011 at 20:00
Harefirld United 4 – 3 PTGFC U12 Rangers
A great effort from the boys today. Especially considering we lost 1-6 at home to Harefield a few weeks ago. We conceded less goals and we scored more goals. An all round improvement. Eventual man of the match winner Matthew played in goal. Covering for Jack who had sprained his thumb. Big kicks, diving saves and total dominance of his own 18 yard area. Very good. Jack moved into a flat back four. Joining Alex, Callum Brown and George Tuck. Alex controlled the play in this area. Again dominating the central zone and reading the game well. George closed down too. Much sharper today. Callum Brown did a lot of running. As always, he smiled a lot too.
