Hungerford Town FC Reserves 0 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 1

Americans remember the Alamo, and the British remember Rorke’s Drift, a South African outpost where 120 Welsh soldiers fought a pitched battle against 4,000 Zulu warriors in 1879. Penn & Tylers Green FC will remember the game at Hungerford Reserves for a long time. Continue reading…

Another one of those “if only”

Highmoor Ibis FC 3 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 2

Set in acres of parkland, the stadium provides a focal point for a variety of indoor and outdoor leisure activities. The velodrome was originally built at the turn of the 20th century, making it one of the oldest in the country. This was the venue Penn & Tylers Green FC played against the league leaders this afternoon. Continue reading…

Feelings of a true Football Fan

Posted: March 19th, 2012 by Andreas

Fabrice Muamba

“I was at the Tottenham game today and what happened has really shaken. For many years I have experienced all sorts in football and in life but what I saw today shook me to my core. To see a young player having to have CPR administered on the field of play was an experience I never want to go through again, the fact I am sending this at 11 at night  is because I can’t sleep.

Fabrice Muamba

When I saw the players looking the way they did you knew it was serious and when I saw the CPR being administered it was horrible, I turned to the people around me and said what they were doing and there faces dropped and the cold realisation of what was going on became so real. Continue reading…

It started so well

Maidenhead United Reserves 3 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 1

The boys in blue and white played at York Road today, as stated on Maidenhead United’s website, the world’s oldest football ground used continuously by the same club.

Before kick off

The boys were confident and it all started so well. The kept pressing and pushing the opposition hard early on and in the 8th minute after neat interplay down the left side Rino Sepede cut inside and scored brilliantly into the far right corner of the goal by lobbing the keeper, who had no chance.

Tytherington did not rock

Hellenic League Supplementary Cup

Tytherington Rocks 2 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 0

Tytherington is a village in South Gloucestershire, England. The quarry to the west belongs to Hanson plc. The former Yate to Thornbury railway branch line passes nearby, with two bridges in the village and a tank engine near the quarry entrance as reminders of the railway.

The boys were confident

The line now ends at the quarry and is used for the transport of stone, but used to continue through a tunnel under the A38, to Thornbury. Tytherington had its own small station on the single track line: it opened in 1872 and closed to passengers in 1944. Continue reading…

Woeful Display at French School Meadows

Penn & Tylers Green FC versus Chinnor FC 0:3

This was one of those days. No excuses, no bad luck, no sun in the eyes, no strong wind and no match officials to blame. Today the performance of the first team was just non-existent.

No way through

We all hoped after last week’s loss at Chalfont Wasps we would see a positive reaction. Nope, quit the opposite. Continue reading…

Stung by Wasps

Chalfont Wasps 3 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 0

Penn & Tylers Green FC decided not to defend in the first 15 minutes. This ultimately cost us the game. Poor marking and indecisive goalkeeping from a free kick after a good cross gave Chalfont Wasps a free header and we were one nil down. The boys responded well by playing good football and good ball sent Owen Hunte-Millington through but he scuffs his shot across goal.

Action in the Chilterns

A good through ball sent their striker clean through and a great finish into the bottom left corner made it two nil to the home side after eight minutes. This effectively decided the game. However, we have to give credit to the boys they kept plugging away.

The Big Freeze Continues

Frozen and Snow Covered Pitches

The Big Freeze

The local derby at  home in the league for our Reserves against Chalfont Wasps and the league match for our A-Team away against Wycombe Community as well as our First Team away fixture at Highmoor IBIS have all fallen victim to the elements again. Frozen and snow covered pitches are to blame.

The Hellenic League has again called off the entire programme for tomorrow, 11th February 2012. The Youth Team did not have a fixture this weekend.

World Cup Player plays for Penn & Tylers Green FC

Posted: January 21st, 2012 by Andreas

Full international plays for Penn & Tylers Green FC

This is a first for Penn & Tylers Green FC: James Williams-Richardson is the first full international player to wear the blue & white stripes. It is a great honour for our club to have a player on our books who played two full World Cup Qualifying games for Anguilla against San Salvador on 6th February 2008 with the return leg played in Washington DC on 26th March 2008.

Anguilla with James kneeling on the right

Says James before today’s game against Rayners Lane “the return leg was a bit one sided (as the result showed) but the experience to play for the country of my Grandfather in front of a large crowd was fantastic”.

We are certainly very proud to have James involved here at French School Meadows, Penn & Tylers Green Football Club’s first full international.

How unnecessary was that?

Rayners Lane 3 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 1

During the Middle Ages the Rayners Lane road was used for transporting grain to the mill on Pinner Green. Well at present times there was evidence of tons of sand being transported during the week to make the pitch playable. To be fair the men at Rayners Lane worked very hard to get the game on but the playing surface is definitely suffering.

Grimmo fires them up

On a very windy afternoon Penn & Tylers Green FC went to The Tithe Farm Social Club with reasonable optimism after the last two good performances in the league. The game started off with the boys in blue and white pressing forward slightly having more of the game. Debut boy James Williams-Richardson and Owen Hunte-Millington causing a few problems for Rayners Lane’s defence early on. Continue reading…
