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.

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…

Good away point

Aston Clinton 2 – Penn and Tylers Green FC 2

In a hard fought and sometimes feisty game, Penn and Tylers Green FC twice came from behind to earn a well deserved point at top of the table Aston Clinton.

On a sunny but chilly afternoon, Penn and Tylers Green FC kicked off hoping to maintain their good form of late. The game was largely uneventful in the first quarter with neither side testing the opposition goalkeeper. However, following a scramble in the Penn and Tylers Green FC goalmouth an unfortunate ricochet off a Penn and Tylers Green FC player let Aston Clinton score at the far post, giving goalkeeper Conor Latta no chance.

Man or the Match - Alex Morgan

Penn and Tylers Green FC immediately fought back, prompted by Curtis Stone in midfield, and this led to a superb through ball by Joe Sullivan to Will Brangwin who shot across the goalkeeper into the far corner of the net. Unfortunately Joe then had to be replaced owing to illness, upsetting the balance of the team with Ross Brace who had looked very comfortable at centre back moving to midfield and Jordan Ives coming on to take his place in defence.

The First Team played well at the Valley of the Race Horse

Lambourn Sports 1 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 1

The village of Lambourn is located near the source of the river Lambourn on the beautiful chalk downlands of England. The village is famous for its association with the training of the world’s finest race horses.

Skipper leads out the team

There are over 2000 horses in training in the Lambourn valley with over 50 Racing Yards. The boys were not really interested in this as there was a football match to be contested. The pitch played well despite the frosty conditions. Lambourn Sports were excellent and very welcoming hosts. Continue reading…

APBS Youth 1 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 6

Penn & Tylers Green FC arrived at the APBS ground full of confidence off the back of four straight wins, however due to the terrible pitch conditions there were worries that the game may not go ahead. Soon enough, a man arrived with a bucket of soil to patch up as many holes as he could and the eager referee let the match proceed as normal.

Man of the Match Anthony Quigley, scoring five goals

With several players unavailable due to illness, Penn & Tylers Green FC had to adjust their usual line-up; Sean Bennett made his first start at centre-back, which allowed Jordan Ives to push forward into midfield and Will Brangwin to slot into the centre with Curtis Stone and Luke Cohen. There was also a full debut for the youngster Ed Howe. Continue reading…

Penn & Tylers Green FC 0 – Thatcham Town Reserves 0

On a bright and fresh afternoon on an excellent pitch Penn & Tylers Green FC and Thatcham Town Reserves, incidentally the only two teams to beat Newbury this season, played out an exciting 0:0 draw.

Action at French School Meadows

Our visitors from The Colthrop Board Mills (closed down in 2000), where paper had been produced for over 200 years played in their Red, black and yellow away kit today. They normally play in the same colours as Penn & Tylers Green FC.

The first half saw a slight territorial advantage for our visitors from Thatcham but this was not turned into anything tangible with Matt Cannings having to save only once from close range. Penn & Tylers Green FC were a little bit too passive and despite creating a few openings with Rino Sepede working hard as the lone striker today, there was just not enough agility in midfield for the majority of the first half.

Frustration at Chinnor

Posted: January 2nd, 2012 by Andreas

Chinnor 3 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 2

An early dangerous free kick from Aiden Taylor, which is well saved, is followed by the 1:0 to Chinnor after three minutes due to poor defending. The cross came from the right side and a header from six yards caused the damage. Not a good start.

Not our day today

Game did not settled early on with Chinnor breaking up play well. After a free kick to Chinnor in a dangerous position Matt Cannings holds on to the ball well. Now Penn & Tylers Green FC started to dominate the game.

Good work down the right for Penn & Tylers Green FC, Chris Hurst’s header across goal just goes wide. In the next attack Gary Crick gets in behind the Chinnor defence to the by line but the ball goes all the way across goal. It is all Penn & Tylers Green FC. Frustratingly the boys just cannot convert their many chances into goals playing against a strong wind. Continue reading…

Paradise (nearly) lost but then Paradise regained

Milton United 2 – Penn & Tylers Green FC 4

On the Milton theme again, what better headline than the two of John Milton’s many works quoted above. Paradise seemed definitely lost after 20 minutes when Milton (the opposition of today – not the poet and politician) were winning the game two nil.

Skipper Sepede leads out the team

The contents of the hipflask provided by our Chairman did not seem to make any difference to the mood of our supporters up till then. We do not know why but our boys, playing in red socks today, did not turn up for the beginning of the first half. They might as well have stayed in the changing rooms for 20 minutes, summed up as follows: Continue reading…
