The Belarusian Premier League is now the only top division in Europe still playing so it's keeping many football fans across the continent entertained in these uncertain and worrying times. 

BATE Borisov who lost last week were expected to win at Slavia Mozyr on Saturday. Slavia had lost 3-1 at Slutsk in week one. Icelandic full international Willum Willumsson opened the scoring for BATE on 10 minutes only for Nikita Melnikov to score twice for the home side to record a 2-1 victory. 


Reigning champion's Dynamo Brest recorded a 0-1 win at Slutsk with their goal coming from Artem Milevskiy who is best known for his time with Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine. The striker, now 35, made 50 appearances for the Ukrainian national team but was actually born in Belarus and played for their under 16 side before playing for Ukraine. 

Minsk FC won the 'Minsk Derby' in a five goal thriller - they were 3-0 up with Dynamo getting two goals back to make the final score 3-2. 

Isloch Minsk won their second game in row 1-0 with Momo Yansane on the score-sheet once again. The 22 year old was born in the Republic of Guinea and has represented his home country at under 20 level - He scored regularly for Isloch last season and is a fan favorite with their small number of loyal supporters - one fan even plays an accordion throughout their games.

One statistic which makes interesting reading in that Dynamo Minsk have the most shots on target at 21 (2 goals) but have two defeats so far with Torpedo Zhodino on 6 shots on target (2 goals) and two wins so far - they play each other on Friday evening at 5pm British time. Surely Dynamo Minsk should get their first win of the season in this one?

THE COLD END SPEAKS TO DIPO FADAIIO


The Cold End recently spoke to Dipo Fadaiio who is Chairman/Manager of Royal Southwark who are a team formed in 2019 that play in the Orpington and Bromley Sunday League Fourth Division. Eku Dean has been their top scorer - He netted 28 goals in 17 appearances prior to the suspension of football. 

Why were Royal Southwark formed? 
We were formed because we believed we could make our own stamp in grassroots football. All the players in the squad are local except our director of football (Ske) who travels from Uxbridge every - that is dedication! 

What's Southwark like as an area? 
Southwark has loads of history and one of the best boroughs to live in. It's a big area and home to all kinds of people with different backgrounds.   


What has been the team's best result of the season? 
We faced a team called Lanthorne FC in the Kent FA Sunday Junior Trophy - they were unbeaten all season until they played us. We beat them twice as the first time we played them they appealed that the pitch wasn't the correct size so the Football Association decided that we should travel to Margate for a rematch. We beat them 5-2 the first time and 5-3 the second time.  

What has been the worst result of the season? 
It would be against Greenwich Mariners when we lost 4-1. 

What's the best thing about Sunday football?
I would say it's the bond you build with you friends and we are simply love to turn out and play the game we love. I wish we started this years ago to be honest. 

What's the worst thing about Sunday football?  
The cancellations and postponements - the Football Association need to invest more money in pitches for all levels of the game and then the talent will hopefully shine though - It's a shame France figured out this before we did. 

Please give Royal Southwark a follow on social media at @f_southwark and check out their you tube channel here

THE COLD END FLASHBACK - SNOW AND A TEN GOAL THRILLER BETWEEN ENFIELD TOWN RESERVES AND ENFIELD 1893 RESERVES

Seven years ago on Saturday 23rd March 2013 a fantastic game took place between Enfield Town Reserves and Enfield 1893 FC Reserves in the Essex Senior League Reserve Division (West). It was an really chilly afternoon at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium and snow in the local area had caused many games to be postponed. More snow fell as the game was played making it not the best playing conditions. 

Ten goals were scored with Connor Bolton scoring a hat-trick for Town. Troy Archer (2), Scott Hayes, Connor Okus and Shenzes Maksud were other goal-scorers for the home side in a game which ended 7-3.
