PREMIER. Boreham found Ravens to be stubborn until the twenty eighth minute when Darren Ince poked home from three yards after the ball was drilled across the box from the left wing, just before the break Ravens keeper/striker, Dave Smith keeper today made a super save diving to his left and tipping round the post the half ended 1-0 on a heavy surface, Boreham continued to play attacking football with their Captain Ryan Ince at the heart of everything, Ravens defender Alex Rudgeley was having a great game under pressure, he was cool and tried to play the ball out at all times, Boreham went 2-0 when from a corner an own goal was scored, on sixty nine minutes it was 3-0 when Tony Cottee lookalike Aaron Gothard slotted the ball home off the inside of the post, ten minutes later Marc Coleman added the fourth from a free kick, near the end Henry Brown on his Boreham debut made it 5-0, there should have been a sixth goal when Marc Coleman slipped the ball to Richard Joughin with only the keeper to beat, Richard looked up and at the vital moment tripped himself over to the amusement of his team mates, Ravens Coach Ian McMillan was superb in the middle of the park, man of the match was Ryan Ince of Boreham, the Captain had a super game. Paul Ansell and the Dale brothers had good games as well, the game was played in a sporting manor and credit goes to both clubs for trying to play the passing game in the mud. Gallow played Mayland Village and Gallow won the game 3-1, Ben Parker opened the scoring for Gallow, goal of the game came from Gallow's Jamie Savage, he got the ball from Alex Newman turned the defender and then did a nutmeg on the keeper for 2-0, Mayland pulled a goal back before the break, scorer not known at the time of this report, Mayland played some good football putting pressure on Gallow, near the end of the game Ross Thompson of Gallow found Tom Horscroft with a super pass, Tom finished well for 3-1, Gallow Coach Dan Horscroft is pleased with his sides seven match unbeaten run.

Wickham Royals played Ferrers Athletic and it was Wickham's Craig Reed that opened the scoring with a long range shot, Glen Foulger hit Wickham's second goal with a header from a free kick, Ferrers then put Wickham under extreme pressure, Wickham hung on for a 2-0 win, Wickham Coach Simon Govus was happy with his sides defending. Stones hosted Queens Head Rams and Stones took the lead on five minutes, scorer not known at the time of this report, one minute later Ross Long equalized for the Rams, just before the break Ross Long hit a screamer, the keeper saved the ball, the ball broke free and on hand was Jamie Hobien to score from two yards, after the break Sam Richardson made it 3-1 when he scored a great solo goal hitting the ball in to the roof of the net from the edge of the box, Roger Jenkin of Queens Head Rams told me it could have been 1-1.

Note To All Clubs
Further to my previous webpage note, at the AGM on 29/6/10 due to the referee and pitch availability shortage I asked the team representatives present if they would rather have 3 divisions each week with a division dropped or all 4 divisions with fixtures allocated. The vote was clear that the teams would rather have 3 divisions a week as there is no guarantee of a referee or pitch availability if all 4 divisions were allocated a fixture. Hence as last year I will be allocating games to 3 divisions each week with a division sitting a week out. However if any teams request a week off I will endeavour to give them a match the following week if it is their divisions week to be dropped so they donít have 2 weeks off and get behind with games. As there are 10 teams in each of the Premier, 1st and 2nd divisions every team should get a game unless teams request a week off. However in Division 3 we have the situation where one team has withdrawn leaving 9 teams so I cannot allocate every team a fixture every week they are due to play in this division. Sorry if this is not ideal but as Iíve said before it is impossible to please everybody all of the time. Also please note that if your team wants a week off for any reason please tell me well in advance. When the fixtures have been published I cannot and will not change them and if you tell me after fixture publication that your team cannot fulfil a fixture you will forfeit the fixture and be fined for non fulfilment as per league rules. Trev Williams Fixtures Secretary...
MessageTo All Clubs
If you dont have a referee it is not good cause to postpone a game. If there is no ref appointed you MUST arrange a referee between yourself and the opposition team.. Please do not call me and ask if you can postpone the match. You cannot postpone a game because you dont have a referee, If you do the committee are likely to award the game against you and FINE YOU for non fulfillment of a fixture. Trevor Williams, Fixture Secretary.
