AFC Paxton 1 - 1 Burridge Afc



Sunday 15th October

Allotment Road, Warsash

Amongst the cloud and drizzle, another draw merged into the echoes of previously tied games; as Burridge remained unbeaten. The game was a succession of unfilled movement and imagination that neither side seemed prepared to leave behind - until Paxton's opener - a thirty yard free kick that was bent over the defending wall into Hopkin's top corner.

Burridge stood firm and allowed little opportunity for Paxton to increase their lead, whilst not threatening to equalize themselves. Ross Bryant was moved from sweeper to the right flank, and it was his driven cross that was nurtured by the returning Kristian Hewitt, and delicately passed beyond the keeper's reach for the equalizer, and a point each was assured.

3-5-2 Dave Hopkins, Kev Willsher, Ross Bryant, Mark Sanderson, Greg Baker, Paul Dyke, Rich Allan, Jay Schwodler, Paul Andrews, Kristian Hewitt.

Other scores:
Aquaseal 2-3 AFC Spotted Cow
Gems FC 3-15 Spinnaker
Waterlooville Social Clb 3-0 Wickham Dynamos
West Meon and Warnford 3-0 Spotted Cow

Quiet day at the office Ross? Well, we had Kristian and Hoggy as subs on Saturday, with Rich and Dean to return - well - I'll let you do the maths, but that's a whopping 15 players not including Steve's mate and Carl Godwin.

Jay said...

Is that rich diving?

Emerson Marks said...

I must confess I was thinking of hime when I saw this picture. Question: If we had a penalty on Saturday, who'd of taken it? Dykey?

Anyone know why Spotted Cow have had all their points deducted?

Emerson Marks said...

Don't know, but www.mvfl.co.uk says:
Points Altered on Tables
Owing to a number of discipline matters, the stats on the league tables have changed.
Most notably Spotted Cow had a number of games removed in Div 1, and in Div 3, Farlington and Tempest both had one point deducted whilst the rest of their stats remained the same.

So that means that one of the two games that we've won we would have won anyway, even if we'd lost!

Emerson Marks said...

Hhmmm, it would appear so. But there's no substitute for doing the job properly.

PS Aquaseal - next week's opponents - play at Wicor Rec. Should be a good tight game.

Scott, How did it go? Got any pictures?

Dykey said...

Mate i would not of put myself up for the pen. Although i did take them in my time and never missed in 5 years (and yes we had some) i have missed the last 2 taken in shoot outs so i think baker of the new no. 7 i would of passed the ball too

Emerson Marks said...

I recall an annual penalty competition at Botley. Everyone had ten penalties and I won the award twide running. The second year was sweet, as I beat Tyronne Bowers in a play off, whilst Scott Bevan was in goal. Baker? I do remember him missing a pen around '94 at the ground in Havant with the burger van - Oh Yes.

Dykey said...

94 hey well since his new success with the ladez i believe in him.

greg_baker said...

I'll have 'em! Yes,Mark I do remember my miss very well (actually just to call it a miss is somewhat kind, I seem to remember it going both over and wide - no mean feat!) - it'll live with me forever. A schoolboy error though, never to be repeated! And that's a promise!

rossy said...

i'm having pens on saturday's and sunday's now. after my man of the match display yesterday, i deserve them. and i'm now taking throw ins, goal kicks and will also continue to miss fre..i mean take free kicks. USA..USA..USA

ross said...

i did not make that last comment. lee or mark stop it.

Emerson Marks said...

Well Ross, you've got to score somehow, is that why you were diving on Saturday?

ross said...

dive! you cheeky git.

no doubt a penalty in my mind.

Emerson Marks said...

Not guilty. It's more likely to be Lee, as I imagine he's off work today.

Ross, you got good air, the ref wasn't impressed was he? Where are you moving to? Decided yet?

ross said...

what ?

Emerson Marks said...

Where are you moving to? You know? What area etc? House or flat?

ross said...

hedge end, house i hope. why ?

Emerson Marks said...

It's just that Amy said you needed a lodger, and I was the ideal candiadate.

ross said...

lodger no thanks !

Emerson Marks said...

Fair enough.

Baker, do you remember when Barry Smith came on as sub at a packed Botley Rec around Christmas '93, with his shirt on back to front - number on his chest. But he left it that way and scored a dramatic winner? I do.

matthew barfoot said...

we need the yellow boot man back!

Emerson Marks said...

Matthew, how can you say that? He's the man whose left YOU half man half machine with that metal rod you have in your arm. A result of him being unable to beat you - a then five year old - goalkeeper!

Anonymous said...

the local fans have gathered outside the burrige social club waiting for barfoot to come out after this mornings training session to comment on who will be captain this week ???

Emerson Marks said...

That's right Anony Mouse, and the smart money's on Jay Schwodler.

Emerson Marks said...

With Rich & Dean returning this Saturday; we have a whopping 15 players!

froudie07 said...

hi

froudie07 said...

just thought i would congrats everyone on a fine performance on saturday was good to get back into it with you guys and long may the number 7 b mine a si hear the man i have replaced was a bit off the pace

Emerson Marks said...

Chortle, chortle, Fielder is that you on a wind up?

fielder said...

nice to see my name up in black and white again. i do work during the day you know, girls. crap yesterday..again.

iceman said...

since everyone is putting their name forward for penalty duties, i will enter my name forward. Used to take them for Hedge End back in the day, long, long time ago! I was proud to skipper the side yesterday, i quite enjoy the role in Sonny's absence, although next week im sure it will be normal service resumed. Oh well, was good while it lasted.

iceman said...

Spinnaker scored 15 goals, what the f*** is going on, why can't we ever batter teams like that? How did we only win 4-3 against that shower of shit??

gems only had 8 men on sunday.

white brian deane said...

I feel i need to put forward three observations from this weekends play.

1. Great result saturday, upon reflection sunday could have been better but another point helps, "from a small acorn grows the mighty oak".

2. Penalties - I seem to remember being crowned 'Penalty Champion of the World' on two consectutive occasions when we used to play with the bigger boys in the Pirelli days. Need i say anymore?

3. I've seen a lot in my life, an end to racism in South Africa, the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 symbolising the end of the Communism in Europe, even England win the Ashes. But did anyone else notice that Bryn has tax on his car? Until 2006? I've seen it all!

white brian deane said...

Also, aside from Fish and Chip matey, who may or may not show up on wednesday, we may have another interested player, an Australian student studying in Southampton who is fed up of playing in Basingstoke, apparently he's quite good. But he is another midfielder. When it rains it pours!

Judging from numbers for next saturday, shall i just leave him on the back burner? Thoughts please.

Luke said...

While we're on the subject, i wouldn't mind the odd freekick now and again, i quite fancy some in off the post action!

James King said...

Sundays performance....

Lost in Translation

first half, the two parties getting acquainted with one another, with the plot ebbing and flowing, as we await with baited breath for a dramatic twist in the tale, which never really materialises.

Scotty B said...

Guys, I was somewhat bemused when I heard you could only manage a draw against Paxton, but from all accounts it sounds as though you had to work hard for it.

Paul, I like the Bryn tax disk story. I also can't believe he's actually paid for a tax disk. Are you sure it’s genuine and not just cut out and coloured in with felt tips? As for this Australian, he actually plays the kicking game? Remember Australians call rugby football. I would hate to see him turn up, pick the ball up and run it into the try zone...actually I would love to see that!

Willsher, just remember I want the captains arm band back next week. One point, from one game, shows that you simply don’t have what it takes to be skipper. If you don’t relinquish the arm band we will have to do battle to the death like Kirk and Spock. If one of us doesn't die, they will kill us both.

For all those that are interested I ran the Nike 10 Km in 50 minutes, 47 seconds. If you click in the link below you can see me finish. I took the place of Kai Yee's cousin's who is a size 10. It wasn't pretty trying to fit into the top believe me. Watch out for me as I look as though I belong in a 'Gay Exchange' advert.

Bring on Aquaseal!

Dykey said...

No Scott i am not interest as once again in another "Rock climbing" incident you left us! Kev is my new skipper no matter who wears the arm band!!!!

gems only had 7 men on sunday

Mark Sanderson said...

And they still scored 3!
I don't imagine they'll be hanging around for long; which is strange. Why decide to not turn up to games when you finally get promoted?

Anonymous said...

i just wrote that to prove to iceman that no-one can possibly know what happened during that game. they could have scored 15 penaltys for all we know.

how could i know they only had 7 men? honestly.

Scotty B said...

Well then Dykey, I guess it will be a fight to the death between Kev and myself to see who is the skipper. I'm Kirk and I have the sword and shield as my weapons. Kev can have the net and tridant. Should be some interesting pre-match entertainment this Sunday.

On a separate note, some good points have been made about judging teams on there results. We have to look at the bigger picture as opposed to just the score. Maybe they had the bare 11 and a few got injured. The opposition ran in a couple of quick goals which lead to the team's collapse, who knows?

Anonymous said...

good point pointing out my good point scotty b.

Phil Wiseman said...

After watching the lads on sunday for the 1st time in years i realise u miss matt and barry up front and sayer in the middle and without me there is no pace at the back, so we may make a come back.

Watch your back Bryn!

iceman said...

some interesting challenges being proposed, can i just say Sonny, im a lover, not a fighter! Did you honestly feel threatened by my captains role for the day? Shame on you!

Also good to see Wiso on the blog, like you say, we have missed your pace and composure on the ball, do you remember your cruyff turn a couple of years back?

jr said...

hi guys, wossie here again.

Very briefly this week and given the run of draws it could only have been a matter of time before this old chestnut came along

The Equalizer

fast paced but with no real direction, and an all too easily predictibale scoreline when Kristian 'Robert McCall' Hewitt scored the equaliser. with nothing really to write home about with regard to the match, how about these little chestnuts

As well as writing the music, a few guest appearances were also made by former Police drummer Stewart Copeland

Other stars of the music world who also appeared include 80s legend Adam Ant and Beastie Boy Adam Horowitz
Other notable appearances came from Robert Mitchum, Kevin spacey, Christian Slater, McAuley Culkin and the oh so beautiful Melissa Joan Hart

Hopefully next weeks game will give me more to talk about....
