Hook Norton Reserves 2 – Penn & Tylers Green Reserves 3

This was an excellent team performance on Tuesday night on a heavy sticky pitch by Penn & Tylers Green Reserves. The boys started brightly and took the lead via a penalty which Michael Benning scored. Penn & Tylers Green Reserves kept pressing and some good play ended up with a good passing move from which Tim Barber made it two nil. Continue reading…

Reserves game versus Finchampstead abondoned

This is the 4th time in five weeks that games involving Penn & Tylers Green FC ended up with the ambulance services arriving on the scene. Today’s Reserves game against Finchampstead FC (like the one last week) had to be abandoned due to a player injury.

Injured Finchampstead Player

First our Ben Heathers in a Youth Team fixture at Prestwood, second our Jack Dean in a First Team fixture at Newbury, third our Howard Holmes in Reserve Team fixture against Rayners Lane last week and now the poor lad from Finchampstead in yesterday’s Reserve fixture. Continue reading…

Howard got injured today

Another injury requiring the Ambulance Services

What is it with Penn & Tylers Green FC at present? Wherever we play we seem to attract the ambulance services at the moment. First Ben Heathers in a youth team game, then Jack Dean in a first team game and now Howard Holmes in today’s reserves game against Rayners Lane. The game was abandoned in 79th minute and Howard was taken to hospital. Let us hope that all will get well soon.

Penn did well at Rayners Lane

Gutsy Penn & Tylers Green sink Rayners

Rayners Lane Reserves 1 – Penn & Tylers Green FC Reserves 2

A Tuesday night trip to Rayners Lane was the fixture Penn & Tylers Green FC Res least wanted after morale crushing defeats to Holyport and the lower league outfit West Wycombe. Lindso had personally taken these results badly and had begun scouring the Sunday leagues looking for victories, whilst Albie had started wearing Rabbit Feet round his neck.

A Weedon - equalised with a stunner

Normally a Penn & Tylers Green FC Res warm up is an extremely lacklustre affair, tonight was different it was undertaken perfectly and there was a sense that the attitudes towards this game where in a huge contrast to those that took to the field against West Wycombe. The team talk was given by Neil and then followed exquisitely by Grimmo in his shiny new jacket, never has a man thrown together that many swear words and that many threats of anthrax and still managed to make it sound like utter poetry. What a hero.

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.

Berks & Bucks Junior Cup

Prestwood FC Reserves 2 – 10 Penn & Tylers Green FC Reserves

The village name of Prestwood is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means ‘Priest-wood’. There is evidence of settlement in Prestwood from the Middle Ages, when the village was mainly covered in oak, beech and ash trees. Jumping a few years, in 2001 the old Prestwood Leisure Centre was demolished. After a much-delayed rebuilding program over the following two years, the Sprinters Fitness Centre opened in its place in 2003.

Wrong end of a Thriller

Holyport FC Reserves 7 –  5 Penn & Tylers Green FC Reserves

The Tuesday night trip to Holyport was a game where Penn & Tylers Green Reserves fancied they could come away with a solid performance and hopefully the 3 points. This however did not turn out to be the case and the manner in which the defeat occurred left a very bitter taste in the mouths of the Penn & Tylers Green players. In fact it is very hard to find humour in what was effectively a wasted evening.

A number of changes were made to the starting 11 with Wayne and Liam coming in and Andre and Graham making way. Penn & Tylers Green very much started on the back foot and struggled to really get a foothold in the game, this however didn’t prevent Liam from creating a number of chances for himself out of nothing. Holyport went close a number of times and were only prevented by a string of good saves from Will between the sticks.

Penn & Tylers Green FC 1 v  3 Newbury FC

A 13:45 meet at Penn & Tylers Green FC for the big match against Newbury leaves the players with a morning of relaxation and a chance to catch up on the weeks news whilst mentally preparing yourself for the challenge ahead. That is unless that player is an enthusiastic scrap metal collector by the name of Albert O’Rourke. Now Albert is not your normal midfield general, by day he is a window fitter by night he takes notes whilst watching scrap heap challenge and by weekend he is an opportunist prowling the local streets in a beaten up old van looking for broken down cars and unwanted washing machines. I guess it is just a coincidence that he shares the same name as Rag and Bone TV Icon Albert Steptoe.
