1sts Match Report from the Non League Paper

UCL Academicals continued their recent impressive run with a 3-0 over Sinjuns Grammarians. At a cold and windswept London Colney, Accies opened with some purposeful football but took half an hour to open their account when Andy Crotty tapped in Gareth Jones cross at the far post. Into the second half and Sinjuns Grammarians had the best of the opening exchanges, and Chris Birch won a disputed penalty following a challenge from Dan Chantler, only to see Dave Heardís penalty hit straight at Accies keeper Mark Dawson. With quarter of an hour to go, Dave Jenkinís through ball opened up the Sinjuns defence, Jones tucking home. Ten minutes later Accies sealed the result, Steve Hair setting up Jenkin to stab home at the second attempt to complete the scoring.

6ths Match Report from Andy Colthorpe Senior

Accies 6ths returned to League action on Saturday against table toppers, Latymer old Boys, away at a cold and blustery Donkey Lane. Despite the apparent gulf in class, the Accies were really up for this game, having put in some decent performances in recent weeks without getting the result.

Kicking with the wind in the first half, the Accies pressed Latymer into their own half for long periods of the game with the midfield quartet of Speedie, Tim, James and Serge putting in some hard work. In addition the whole team were getting stuck in, winning key 50:50 challenges. The narrow pitch was ideal for Serge's long throwing ability and he was able to plant balls into the box for headed flick-ons across the area at will (but not at Will as he was defending the halfway line). As in recent weeks, the Accies were not able to turn this dominance to their advantage and Latymer took the lead after 30 mins after the Accies were not able to clear their lines from a corner sufficiently. The ball broke to a midfielder on the edge of the box and rifled a shot goalwards. Andy C (Senior) attempted a clearance on the line that only Michael Flatley would have been proud of (if he had stood still like he did for most of the game the shot would have been blocked) - we were 1:0 down. By the way how come I'm known as "senior" when my cousin is known as "No 2"!!! The second goal had similarly regrettable comic undertones; Serge having made a tackle in the 6 yard box sat on the ball and couldn't get it out from underneath him at which point an Oppo's striker kicked the ball out and into the net - Serge must now know how 007 felt when tortured in Casino Royale.

A second half hamstring injury to Adey led to Shaun coming on however there was a bit of a kerfuffle as Adey had to strip off and swap kit with Shaun before he could take the field. The sight if Adey walking up the touchline in nothing but his boots and lucky Euro 96 underpants is one which I will not be able to erase from my mind for some time (to be filed mentally as the same image of Bart Simpson in his Y-fronts!). Andy C (No 2) and JP also came on in the second half and although the commitment was still there it was more difficult playing into the wind. Latymer hit the woodwork at least 5 times before scoring their 3rd and final goal. In summary the desire and commitment was there, we also showed that we had the skill and were not outclassed by the League leaders. We need, however, more clinical execution in both penalty areas in order to create and convert chances, and conversely to eradicate sloppy defending. We continue to make progress as a team though and must keep going - the tide WILL turn.

Vets Match "Report" from Danny Goldman

Just a quick note of thanks to everyone for yesterday. There were so many positives, not least the Vets' first win in over a year (OK we've only played 5 matches in that period but it's the principle) but also the way we played and the positive spirit throughout the team, whether that involved going in nets, reffing, being positive to teammates and (of course) not abusing the ref (I thought the guy in the first half was particularly good though). 

I think the regulars all appreciated the contribution of the newer guys, young and old, and we'd be delighted to see any of you back when other fixtures permit, in particular the over 35s for obvious reasons. The main aim of the Vets team is to provide a good match for Accies players as the legs tire a bit and the bellies bulge, we want to keep it going and it will really help if we can get even the odd game from the older regular Saturday players at the club. There are always times when the body tells you to pack it in (I may be having one of those at the moment) but then, like the time you hit that drive 250 yards down the middle of the fairway, you play in match that makes you want to keep going long enough to be able to cross one to the far post for your son to head it in at the far post. Yesterday was one of those days and we need them from time to time to get over the odd cup exit shocker.

1sts Match Report from the Non League Paper

UCL Academicals travelled to unbeaten SAL side Carshalton, and turned in their best performance of the season in winning 3-0. Carshalton rarely threatened with the wind behind them and Accies scored the only goal of the first half as Gareth Jones nodded home at the far post from Rick Hirstís cross. In the second half Accies took control and the game opened up, and almost doubled their lead as Steve Hair blasted a volley against the bar, and Dave Jenkin soon hit the post. Accies finally added a second as Jenkin pounced to fire home, and with ten minutes to go Greg Blake added a third to seal the win.

1sts Match Report from the Non League Paper

With most sides involved in the London Old Boys Cup, UCL Academicals hosted Enfield Old Grammarians in the only Premier Division match.

Enfield started brightly and had already carved out two good chances in the first quarter of an hour, before a long punt over the top from goalkeeper Adam Chalk evaded the Accies central defenders, and Adam Herron ran on to sidefoot home and open the scoring. Shortly after, Enfield couldíve extended their lead as Herron shot across the goal, only to see Mark Dawson save the ball at fingertips, the rebound falling to Tom Miller at a tight angle, and his snapshot came back off the post and Accies cleared. This seemed to spur Accies into action, and they finally got into the game, starting to create chances, the best falling to Neil Gillard whose close range shot was saved by Chalk. On the half hour, Accies equalised when a long diagonal ball from Rick Hirst was met on the run from Adam Stainsby to head home. Just before half time Accies took the lead when Lloyd Vanson opened up the defence and fired home, Chalk making a valiant attempt to save the rising shot, but seeing it fly in off the cross bar.

In the second half Accies took control, and saw various half chances spurned to leave the game on a knife edge until the end, but Enfield rarely threatened to score the equaliser and Accies held out for a 2-1 victory.
