This years FA journeys

THE EMIRATES FA CUP

The Extra Preliminary round of the Cup saw us make a mid week journey around the M25 to take on Lordswood FC. “The Lords” based in Chatham, Kent compete in Southern Counties East League Premier Division this season.

Although we won the game 3-2 thanks to a brace from Brandon Barzey and one from Meshach Williams we should really have been home and dry by half time. The boys put together a good perfomance but repeatedly failed to convert any of the numerous chances we created

The Preliminary Round saw us once again on the road, this time we travelled into Sussex to take on Steyning Town from the Premier division of the Southern Combination League,

A nice ground, with very nice people associated with the club, unfortunately they also had the dreaded 3G pitch which we always seem to take a while to adjust too.

Once again this proved to be the case and, in the 20 minutes it took us to come to grips, we had conceded 2 goals and, although we through the kitchen sink at them, failure to take our chances once again cost us. Steyning won the tie 2-1

THE BUILDBASE FA VASE

The 1st Qualifying round and another road trip. This time we only had to make the relatively short journey to Rayners Lane. “The Lane” play in Division One of the Spartan South Midland and have a shiney new gound, including a 4G pitch.

Unlike the FA Cup we got off to a flyer, scoring in the 1st minute, and we never really looked back. Goals from Elliott Simpson, Michael Kamara, Bruno Tingle and Sam Merson saw us progress by 4 goals to 2,

The 2nd Qualifying round a home tie against fellow ComCo side Deportivo Galicia. We got off to a decent start through a good finish from Brandon Barzey who fired home from the edge of the box. Both sides than went on to hit the woodwork but there were no further goals in the opening 45 minutes.

We started the 2nd half very brightly and 2 goals from Sam Merson within the opening 5 minutes of the restart effectively sealed the tie for us. Sammy Gagan scored a 4th for us, finishing off a good team move at the back post, which he collided with in scoring.

1st round – Away tie to Welling Town. “The Boots” are currently members of the Southern Counties East League Premier Division and play at Bayliss Avenue in Thamesmead. The tie is scheduled for Saturday 31st October.

The Management Team

The committee are pleased to announce that the management team that bought about such major improvement at the end of last season have agreed to continue their works in the 2020 season. Simon Haughney (centre in picture) is to remain as manager of our 1st team, with a future remit to further develop youth football at Rectory Meadow. Simon will retain his management team of Paul Thomas (left) and Leon Soloman (right). Paul will be Simons right hand man in managing the team and Leon will assist with coaching and an active 1st team player, as well as giving his advice on team matters.

As a youngster Simon was a talented football player. He was identified at a young age and was picked up by Crystal Palace, where he spent 6 years before being released. Simon was selected to play for Middlesex County, he went on to captain the team, where he played alongside the likes of Peter Crouch, Stephen Reid and Sam Parkin.

After dropping out of the academy set up Simon spent some time playing Non League football, making appearances for both Yeading and Staines Town under Steve Cordrey, before deciding to concentrate on developing his business.

Outside of football Simon is involved with, well football. In 2000 he established Onside Football Coaching and have an affiliation to Hampton & Richmond Borough FC Academy, coaching all 25 youth teams, working with over 350 members on a weekly basis. Onside also run coaching sessions in schools, numerous afterschool clubs, PPA sessions, multi skills clubs and breakfast clubs.

All of the boys have a very clear vision of how they believe football should be played and are very keen to introduce their methods to our sides. They take over with the team bottom of the league but they are all very confident that they can show rapid improvement in performances, and in turn see us start to climb the table.

Welcome to the Ranch boys.
