Liss Athletic Reserves 1 - 3 Burridge AFC AET

Burridge recorded a satisfying extra time win in the Hampshire Cup against Wessex Combination side Liss Athletic. As usual with Burridge, things were far from straightforward. Liss went ahead early in the first half as Burridge concentrated on appealing for handball rather than play to the whistle, the ball fizzing past an equally static Sam Schwodler from twenty-five yards. Undeterred, Burridge went on to create a plethora of meaty chances on what’s rumoured to be Hampshire’s largest non-league playing surface. Bryn Schwodler was the guilty party. Evidence of his finishing in the first half was reminiscent of Nottingham Forest’s 1990’s goal bodger Jason Lee, who like Schwodler, went through a well publicised spell of being seemingly unable to finish his cornflakes, let alone several very presentable one on ones opportunities.


The game followed a similar pattern in the second half, as Liss' forays into attack were fleeting; Burridge continued to knock hard on the Liss door. At the heart of much of the creativity was Jamie Hewitt whose crisp control seldom gave away possession, and from his corner kick came the equaliser, as Bryn Schwodler rose to head home. Burridge were unlucky not to win in ninety minutes when Ben Hutton’s slide rule pass found Greg Baker, whose low right footer was tipped onto the post to fall agonisingly short of Paul Andrews’ size 12. As darkness fell on came the floodlights, and with penalty kicks seemingly inevitable, Hewitt sold his marker a dummy to cross from the right for Bryn Schwodler to meet beautifully on the volley. With Liss now a beaten side there was time for Schwodler to race clean through on goal and claim his hat-trick, atoning for his first half calamities. The game was up and Burridge were in the draw for the next round.

4-4-2: S.Schwodler, L.Sanderson, M.Sanderson, K.Willsher, J.Schwodler (M.Reeves), G.Baker, B.Hutton, J.Newman (S.Froud), J.Hewitt, P.Andrews (J.Hutton), B.Schwodler Unused Subs: M.Birks, P.Dyke

well done on saturday girls. hewitt and i knew we would win when we saw them warming up! although i must admit, i wanted penalties at the end after sitting through nearly TWO HOURS of dross!

on another note, the southampton fa website say afc hop are down to play botley this w/end in the cup. if thats the case, cup games usually take priority over league matches, so we could end up not having a game.

for some reason it looks as if its only us and bishopstoke WMC from senior 1, that are not due to play in a cup game, so that fixture could be rearranged. if its already been sorted, i'll get my coat and book my taxi now...

Well done boys, satisfying result in the end, now lets get our league form back on track! I thought it was a good performance, we were by far the better team and the fitness was good, especially when it went to extra time.

Not a great performance by any stretch of the imagination against a very poor side - but a win is a win and into the hat we go!!!

after our conversation during the world cup marcus, i recall being ridiculed both at ranelagh and on this blog, for suggesting that lampard is a better player than ballack.

well, the more i see of the £120,000 a week german play for chelsea, the more i think that you lot talk utter shite for suggesting otherwise. am i missing something? are we still waiting to see this great player, or is this it? what does he actually do for chelsea? id rather have lamps in my team anyday, so would mourinho, so i must be right....

The german is quality and is taking his time to find his feet, as most new players from outside the premeirship do. Any one who had Chelsea, Man U, Barca to name a few clubs after him must be very good. Having said that at club level Lamps is pure genius and although we mock the number of deflected goals he scores if it was that easy everyone would get 20 a year.

however the jury still remains out on Ballack in this league (unboubted success in national and German League) Lamps has proven his worth in this league but it is early days and as yound markus says one tree does not make a forest

yeah suppose. we all know one sandwich doesn't make a picnic....
