THE MOTORMEN'S MARCH TO THE ARCH ENDS AT COLNEY HEATH

COLNEY HEATH LINE-UP BEFORE THE GAME 
Essex Senior League Redbridge travelled to Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division Colney Heath on Saturday afternoon for a Buildbase FA Vase Second Qualifying Round game. The Motormen went into the game on the back of a brilliant victory at Waltham Forest (who were top of the ESL in the opening weeks) in midweek which was only their second victory in ten league games played. They had also beaten Eton Manor 5-4 in the previous round on Saturday 10th September. The Magpies had won two of their eight league games played and had recently beaten FC Broxbourne Borough in a League Challenge Trophy game.








On a windy day in Hertfordshire it was the home side who went in at half time 1-0 up thanks to a Danielson Vicente well taken goal on 24 minutes - they had also hit the post during the first period. The visitors had worked the ball into some good areas but when it came to a cutting edge and being clinical in front of goal it just wasn't their day. Heath had to replace their goalkeeper Emmanuel Olajide in the opening 10 minutes of the second half - he had picked up a hand injury (reported as a broken thumb) following a great save made from a good Redbridge chance - Bradley Osbourne who was playing at right back took over the gloves. They scored again on 69 minutes to make it 2-0 through Lewis Davis only for The Motormen to pull one back almost immediately though Kieran English to make for a nervy ending but it was the home side who held on and looked the more threatening in front of goal during the last 10 or so minutes.


GOALKEEPER EMMANUEL OLAJIDE HANDS THE SHIRT OVER TO BRADLEY OSBOURNE FOLLOWING HIS HAND INJURY... 
They have been drawn at home in the First Round Proper where they will play fellow SSMFL Premier Division side Hoddesdon Town in what will be an eagerly anticipated game.  

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS 


Redbridge travel to Southend Manor on Tuesday evening for an Essex Senior League game with Micky Nathan's side making the trip to Edgware Town for a SSMFL Premier Division game.

ROVERS SCORE EIGHT - A DAY TO FORGET FOR THE ROSEY

It was the First Round of the  Hertfordshire Sunday Intermediate Cup today and TheColdEnd was present to see Welwyn Hatfield Sunday League Premier Division side The Rosey take on East Hertfordshire Corinthian Sunday League Division Two side Whitebridge Rovers.

The Rosey came into the game on the back of two good league victories agianst Hatfield Mosquito (4-2) and Bradmore Rovers (5-1). 

Whitebridge Rovers are a new side formed over the summer and are based in Enfield Lock with their main sponsor being The Red Lion Pub. They won their first game 7-5 last weekend AET against 'The Gremlins' in the ORC League Challenge Cup First Round. 

Whitebridge included Alex Cathline (who made a number of apperances for Enfield Town in 2015) who has been very impressive this season for Evo Stik Southern League Premier Division Dunstable Town this season - He scored a hat-trick along with Kieran Asamadu-Sakyi who also played who is currently with Ryman Premier Division Billericay Town, was a youth player with Tottenham Hotspur and spent time with Plymouth Argyle. He played for SSMFL Premier Division Cockfosters last season.  

For The Rosey to go down 0-8 will be disapointing for them but when they come up against players of the quality Whitebridge had they can put this result behind them when back in action next weekend against Hatfield Seniors in the MACRON Welwyn Hatfield Sunday League Memorial Cup Game.

Whitebridge Rovers are in EHCL Division Two action next Sunday away to 'The Hertford Hounds' at Hartham Common in Herford.  Some match pictures are below -






















ALEX CATHLINE CELEBATES HIS HAT-TRICK



THE CITIZENS HOLD ON TO COLLECT A VALUABLE THREE POINTS AT COCKFOSTERS


To sum up yesterday afternoon at Chalk Lane you could say Welwyn Manager Adam Fisher would of been very pleased to win the game as his side (who were missing a number of key players) dug in and defended the 2-0 lead they had from goals scored in the first half and 'Foster's manager Dean Barker would of been gutted his team didn't get anything from a game they played so well in but could have very little fault in the performance they put it. The game pitched second v third in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division. The Citizens are one of the favourites for the title after finishing in fourth place last season and signing a number of impressive players over the summer with 'Foster's young side having an excellent start to their season winning five of their league games. 

The away side made an excellent start when Taishan Griffith (recently signed from Evo Stik Southern League Premier Division side Dunstable Town) scored a wonderful goal when on the edge of the box smashed a looping bending shot past Tautis Paoniskatis in the home goal after 10 minutes. It got even better when on 27 minutes James Ewington latched on to a through ball and was able to round the keeper and hit the back of the net. 

Credit to 'Fosters who enjoyed large spells of possession, especially in the second half, with Emmnauel Melford-Rowe very influential in midfield and going forward. Oliver Leslie in the Welwyn goal pulled off an amazing save to keep the score at 0-2. 'Foster's good work got them the goal they deserved when a free kick floated into the box was headed into his own net by a Welwyn defender. 

Despite pressure piled on from the home side it was Welwyn who made the trip back up the A1 with a welcome three points which sees them move up into second place four points below London Colney who won 5-1 at home versus Sun Sports yesterday. MATCH HIGHLIGHTS are below. 

Both Welwyn Garden City and Cockfosters are in Spartan South Midlands League Challenge Trophy First Round action this midweek. 'Fosters welcome Divison One side Hatfield Town to Chalk Lane on Tuesday evening and The Citizen's welcome Division Two side The 61 (FC) on Wednesday evening. 

Please get along and support your local sides - they will be very pleased to see new visitors to their grounds.
