Paradise not lost

Paradise not lost

Penn & Tylers Green FC 3 – Milton United 2

Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet Milton. Luckily for Penn & Tylers Green FC’s paradise was not lost against Milton United as a second home win on the trot was secured with a good performance.

On a windy but sunny afternoon in front of 37 loyal supporters including our Club President (who is still looking for that illusive Graf Zeppelin Airship) the boys started well and could have scored in the first minute.

A goal for Penn & Tylers Green FC

The team who were without the suspended Antonio Sepede and Jonathan Mason carried on dominating the game and played some excellent football early on. Graham Potts replaced Sam Walters (quite clearly a touch of Noroviruses) before the start and Graham had an excellent game in his first start in the first team this season.

A very good move in the 11th minute involving Chris Hurst, and Owen Hunte-Millington produced a fierce shot from Jamie West which rebounded from the bar with the goalkeeper well beaten.

Milton United were dangerous on the counter attack (and remained so throughout the game with their number 10 Dan Oatway showing all his experience) and in the 13th minute forced Matt Cannings to make a good save low to his left.

Not Stung this time

Action at French School Meadows

Penn & Tylers Green FC win tough local derby

Penn played local rivals Chalfont Wasps on Saturday, who are joint top of Division One East, and in an excellent, sometimes fiercely contested, encounter, which you would expect and relish, they came out worthy winners by three goals to one.

On the back of two rather disappointing results, Penn would have no respite and would have to be at their best to beat a good Chalfont side, who have been scoring for fun of late and obviously therefore deserve to be at the top of the table.

Penn had three debutants in the line up today, namely Owen Hunte-Millgan at right full back, Leo Dinmore in Midfield and Rourke Pickford in Goal. Antonio Sepede moved to centre half today in the absence of injured Dan Arnett, who was on the bench. Over the last few seasons Penn had never beaten a team above themselves in the league. Manager Johnny Sepede started with a bold 3-5-2 formation.

Not to be – Another loss after a good start

HFC 3 – Penn & Tylers Green (A) 2

Shelly Road, Saturday 22nd November, freshly mown pitches and an autumn breeze in the air. The chugging sound of an old ford transit minibus chugging up Marlow Hill towards Shelly road meant one thing, Penn & Tylers Green were in town. For a first this season, Penn & Tylers Green A’s played alongside Penn & Tylers Green Reserves at Shelly road which meant over half the club were present. Penn & Tylers Green A’s were visiting HFC in the senior section and the reserves were up against West Wycombe in the Cup.

First league win of the season for the A -Team

Great Missenden 2 v Penn & Tylers Green 3

Saturday the 17th saw Penn & Tylers Green A’s hit the road and travel to Prestwood common for a bottom of the league clash against an equally struggling Missenden side who historically Penn & Tylers Green A’s always struggle to take points off. A full squad and a few late changes meant that the A’s had a full squad which included Platty from the reserves and the long awaited return of the one and only Aiden Taylor. Aiden tempted along by the promise of an extra large Whopper meal if he completed 90 minutes by Paul Benning.

Slough Heating too HOT for Penn in B&B Cup

Slough Heating 3 aet 2 Penn & Tylers Green

Slough Heating, unbeaten this season, from the East Berks League, a step below PTGFC in the pyramid system, gained a surprise victory in the Berks & Bucks Cup second round match at Slough Polish Club, with a winner in the last ten seconds of extra time.

On the back of two defeats, this was the chance to get back to winning ways in a fixture, which on paper, PTGFC should be winning. However, the team had four enforced changes with players missing, for various reasons, from the previous week. This could not be used as an excuse though, as the club has good strength in depth this season so this was an opportunity for players to stake their claim for a place.

Penn & Tylers Green lose out only after Extra Time

Newbury 5 aet 3 Penn & Tylers Green FC

Match report in the form of in Game commentary from Paul Lindsay this week:

Saturday afternoon saw Penn & Tylers Green Reserves travel over to Newbury for a Chairman’s Reserve Challenge Cup match. Newbury is always a tough place to go but was made even harder by the fact that Penn & Tylers Green FC were missing a number of faces while Newbury had won 6 in 6 before this game.

Penn & Tylers Green FC included Chris Vincent who made a second debut for the club after returning from Holmer Green as the reserves had to once again shuffle the pack due to injuries and unavailability. Before the game even started, Penn & Tylers Green FC knew they were going to be up against it when the Referee failed to show meaning Newbury had a member of their coaching staff on the whistle.

Penn & Tylers Green 2 – 5 Wycombe Community

A first home game at the Rye this season for Penn & Tylers Green FC A’s saw a visit from league favourites Wycombe Community for what was an eagerly anticipated clash in the fixture calendar.

Before the game Big Greg was found in the changing rooms cuddling in the corner with a stuffed Piranha in a glass box. He had said that it was a birthday present for his Dad, I hope I don’t pull Greg’s name out of the hat in this year’s Penn & Tylers Green FC Secret Santa present exchange.

Hungerford were the hungrier today

Distracting Airship

Penn & Tylers Green FC 1 – 2 Hungerford Town Reserves

Sorry, but there is not much to report today. It was a bad day at the office. The boys started like a house on fire and the first ten minutes it looked like when, not if, the first goal for the boys in the blue & white stripes was going to arrive. Well, it didn’t. Two good opportunities were squandered.

Bluefin Insurance Brokers Challenge Cup 1st Round

Thame United 1 – 0 Penn & Tylers Green FC

Thame United progressed to the next round of the Bluefin League cup on Tuesday evening, at the ASM stadium, by defeating Division 1 East club Penn & Tylers Green FC. The last time these teams met was in March 2010 in a league game at Penn. Thame United, of course, went on to become Division 1 East champions and gained promotion, whilst an unlucky Penn & Tylers Green FC team finished in last place. The team they fielded on Tuesday was a great improvement on the team seen 18 months ago which made for a close game with few chances at either end.

PTGFC U7 Team 1 vs GX&F

Posted: October 4th, 2011 by Fergus

25th September 2011

Team 1, match 1 were put under first half pressure from GX & Fulmer but a solid defence from Ted Manning, Thomas Tarry, Joe Dent and Oakah Htun and ‘cat like’ goalkeeping from Ben Widdowson didn’t allow the opposition to score. It was Harry Doyle who caused huge problems for the opposition coming close a number of times until he eventually scored after a mazy dribble. Joe Dent hit the post later in the match, and Harry always looked like scoring. Despiet greta second half defence from Rhys Medd and an excellent save from Jack Faraday GX and Fulmer scored a late goal.
