TUESDAY 18th DECEMBER / WEDNESDAY 19th DECEMBER[b][/b]
With the constant rain falling and puddles forming three games managed to get played in midweek (alright two were on 3G pitches) and full credit to the ground-staff at Leighton Town (who had seen their weekend fixture abandoned) in getting their game on.
18/19 December Stats: 3 games played of which 0 were home wins, 1 were away wins and 2 draws.
Highest Midweek Attendances: 86 Edgware Town v Wembley, 63 Leighton Town v Potton United and 25 Brimsdowm v London Lions.
LEAGUE CHALLENGE TROPHY Quarter Final
SSML newbies Potton United booked a semi-final date at either Enfield Borough or Bovingdon in the League Challenge Trophy with a 2-1 win at Leighton Town. After a goalless first period the visitors took the lead ten minutes into the second period however the lead was to last just three minutes. The winner arrived midway through the half and despite the hosts cavalry charge onslaughts for an equaliser (they even brought on George Armstrong (Custer), the Potton defence held firm. Full result and goalscorers are listed below.
1-2 Leighton Town v Potton United (Hall) / (Webb, Ansell-Carter) Attendance: 63
A goal in stoppage time earned Edgware Town a point in their home game with Wembley, for the visitors it is another vital point as they strive to haul themselves out of the relegation battle. Full result and goalscorers are listed below.
1-1 Edgware Town v Wembley (Hunte) / (Dinham) Attendance: 86
Brimsdown and London Lions shared six goals and the points, for the hosts Brimsdown the result means that every club in Division One has now drawn at least once this season. Full result and goalscorers listed below.
3-3 Brimsdown v London Lions (Akanbi , Cornelius) / (Creese, Goldberg, Bolle) Attendance: 25
As a special treat I have decided that all clubs shall have a free midweek date next Tuesday.
Just to remind you that the shops will be closed next Tuesday, let the panic and hoarding begin
