Bedworth United v CORBY TOWN


FROM THE DUGOUT GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE. I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO THE OFFICIALS, ASHLEY ROBINSON, HIS STAFF AND SUPPORTERS OF CORBY TOWN TO THE OVAL FOR TONIGHTS LEAGUE GAME. I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY THE GAME, FACILITIES AND HAVE A SAFE TRIP HOME. I write these notes after going out of the FA cup on bank holiday Monday to Halesowen and before our next league game away at Thame. It was always going to be a difficult start to the season, as it always is. All teams trying to work each other out and all having a fresh start with eager optimism, hoping we all get off to flyers. In the two league matches I have been reasonably happy with performances but not the results. This is except for a 20-minute collapse away at Barton, where we thought we had done a job at half time and stopped battling. The two FA cup ties were Jekyll and Hyde performances against the league favourites. We did very well at home with 10 men gaining the draw and looked stronger as the game went on but looked very weary and lack lustre in the replay 48 hours after. I will be expecting a good positive reaction and performance against Thame after our poor display, going out of the cup. With the pre-season preparation being interrupted through work, holidays and illness, I still am finding things out about the new players and helping them settle in. I know all the other managers in the area have had the same issues and I am finding that young players are very impatient. If they are not playing, they will soon move on or contact other clubs, even after two weeks, unbelievable really. I know and understand they are eager to play but not many back themselves and believe in their ability and remain. The ones that do and put in the time will benefit in the long run, as we have great facilities and experienced and highly qualified coaches too. Image: Š Barry Wheway I have had so many texts off 19 and 20-year-old players in the last two weeks, saying that are not happy at clubs they are at and the manager doesn’t understand them etc etc - I could have made four under 21s teams. I do not entertain such players as they are a waste of time and will obviously do the same at Bedworth. Usually with such an attitude and impatience they end up playing a lot lower down on parks pitches or giving up football completely and blaming others for their lack of opportunity and success. Obviously, this is yet another tough match in store for us. Corby lost in the play offs last season and have started well and should be in the mix come April. Please keep up your positive support for the Greenbacks.

Enjoy the game. Stuart Bedworth United v CORBY TOWN

Bedworth United v CORBY TOWN


AWAY END

Corby Town Football Club were formed in 1948 and are the second club to represent the town, following Stewarts & Lloyds Corby, who were formed 13 years earlier in 1935. The club’s nickname ‘The Steelmen’ derives from the old steelworks that were in Corby. The first chairman of the club was local MP William Montgomery, whilst Reg Smith was named the first manager. Smith had previously played for Millwall and Dundee whilst representing England at international level. Things started well for the newly formed Steelmen, winning their first game 5-1 against Wellingborough Town on 21 August 1948 at Occupation Road, which was home to Corby Town until the move to the Rockingham Triangle in 1985. It took the club only three years to win their first title, wrapping up the United Counties League in 1951 before doing the same again only a year later, with Ernie Middlemiss scoring a club record 135 goals in 136 games, a record that was to stand for 40 years. 1958 saw the introduction of floodlit football in Corby and in the same year the club moved from the Midland League to the Southern League. The move to the Southern League looked to be a good one as the club narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier Division in 1964, but promotion was gained the following year. The club made several unsuccessful applications to join the Football League, although they did receive one vote in 1966. The club moved to the multi-purpose Rockingham Triangle venue in 1985 but it didn’t prove to be a lucky move as the Steelmen were once again relegated from the Premier Division in 1990. They didn’t spend long out of the Premier as they achieved a league and cup double the following season. The mid-90s saw a cash crisis at the club which threatened to put the club out of business, and although they were spared, relegation was to follow. The turn of the millennium brought about more positivity at the Triangle as they consolidated their mid-table position in the Dr Martens league. More was to follow in 2005 as they just missed out on a play-off place under manager Rob Dunion. Dunion’s side went one better in 2006 as they were promoted once more. Corby Town saw a change of ownership in 2007 as a new board headed by ex-Kettering Town chairman Peter Mallinger. Club chairman Peter Mallinger sadly passed away in January 2011, just months before the club’s new 3,000 capacity Steel Park stadium was due to open. His son David Mallinger took charge of the club. In April 2014 it was announced that a local consortium businessmen headed by Paul Glass had agreed a deal to purchase the club and save it from the threat of administration. Stevie Noble was appointed as the chairman and Tommy Wright was given sole charge of the first team, with Andrew Wilson departing. In his first year in charge of the side Tommy Wright led his team to the Southern League Premier Division Championship. The Steelmen secured the title and promotion back to the Conference North with a dramatic 3-2 win on the final day of the season against Poole Town who had led the division by one point going into that fixture. Spencer Weir-Daley scored the winning goal for Corby with just nine minutes remaining.

AROUND THE CLUB

It’s Raining Goals What a couple of weeks it has been at The OVAL since the last programme. It was raining goals on the Bank holiday weekend. The U15 MJPL started it with a resounding 12 nil victory against Tamworth Academy the U16 MJPL then got in on the goal scoring action with a hard fought 4-4 draw against a very good Walsall Wood side. Sunday saw the two Bedworth United U10 sides face off against each other and they shared 14 goals between them in a thoroughly enjoyable game which was a great advert for junior football. Following on from that it was the turn of the U15 Lions to entertain us going one better than the U15 MJPL and putting 13 goals past NFK Burbage. The ladies then decided to get in on the action in their Cup game against Stockport County, in a game that had everything (including pitch temperatures in excess of 40 degrees) the female Greenbacks after drawing 2-2 in 90 minutes and no replays scheduled had to face the agony of extra time and after going 3-2 down in the extra 30 minutes they then showed the courage and fight to turn the scoreline round and eventually run out 4-3 winners to progress into the next round so they will be waiting with bated breath for the draw for the next round. In one weekend The OVAL has witnessed a total of 54 goals 47 of which were scored by the team in green with only 7 against that isn’t including the first teams results. With the Junior League games starting on the 7th September for the MJPL teams and the 8th for the Tamworth and Coventry and Warwickshire Youth leagues things are ramping up for all the junior teams and I am sure I can wish them all good luck for their seasons from all supporters of the club. Wednesday night saw Lee Hursts Youth Team take on Cov Sphinx in there second game of the season in a hard fought affair but coming out victorious by 3 goals to 1. They travel to Alvechurch on Monday in the FA Youth Cup knowing that they are only 3 games away from being in the hat with the likes of Man City and Chelsea. Off the pitch with the help of a few volunteers (both young and slightly older) the goal mouths on the small 5–a-side pitch have been repaired with new turf being laid in preparation for the youngest Greenbacks season. We would like to congratulate Dawn Gardner on being chosen as Bedworth United’s volunteer of the month for August for all the hard work she does selling the 50/50 helping with the players food and even this month jumping behind the bar when needed, without our amazing volunteers the club would not run. If you would like to volunteer at The OVAL then please have a chat with either myself or a board member. Keep your eyes peeled for our goal of the month competition and make sure you have your vote either online or in the clubhouse. We still have player sponsorship opportunities available for all so show your support for your favourite player and support the club at the same time.

THROUGH THE LENS Barry Wheway Club Photographer

It’s been a busy week for me taking in the FA Cup fixture here at The OVAL with Halesowen Town resulting in a bank holiday Monday replay at The Grove and then last Saturday’s fine win away at Thame United. All the action shots will be appearing in either this evening’s programme or in the future ones. I have enjoyed the games, my big concern, as many of you will know is the weather and both the FA Cup fixtures were very warm indeed although at Halesowen I managed to find a little shade. For once, and maybe a rare occasion my afternoon at Thame was near on perfect as most of the match was played in overcast conditions. We were all happy with the team’s effort in the home fixture with Halesowen as although we hadn’t played great we stuck at the task and earned a replay with a good goal from Alex Troke. My man of the match for this game had to go again to the hard working and skilful Lewis Chester. So off to The Grove for the replay, the people there made us all very welcome and it was a pleasure to visit them. This was my first ever visit to Halesowen, it has simply been one of those grounds that has eluded me over the years. The playing surface there (grass) was outstanding and I was told that Halesowen have invested a great deal of money into that area of the club. To be honest the the Greenbacks were well beaten on the day and there were few complaints from those who travelled. The only bright spot was that new greenback Ashanti Pryce scored his first goal for the club. Last Saturday we travelled down the M40 to visit the ASM Stadium and take on Thame United in a league fixture. A very neat setup and again very welcoming people. I did wonder though why there was such a wide area in front of the seated stand. The playing surface (grass) was excellent and worthy of a team of much higher league status. We had quite a number of Greenback supporters dotted around which was good as they saw the lads dominate the game for long periods and for me a really solid performance. Goals from Khaellem BaileyNicholls and a penalty from Alex Troke saw the Greenbacks bring home the three points. My man of the match for this game was the hard working Khaellem Bailey-Nicholls who caused the Thame defence problems all afternoon switching from left to right sides and being a real nuisance for defenders I was pleased he was rewarded with a goal, thoroughly deserved. I personally was smiling all the way home, as this was the first time I had witnessed a Greenbacks league victory since I volunteered to help the club in July 2018!!! I was so bad an omen that I think the club were going to say “thanks but no thanks, please go and help another club” My wife always asks the score when I return and up to last Saturday she responded with the same answer “you’re a Jinx”. Lets hope I have broken that now and I will see many more wins. I will be taking an evening off from the camera tonight and I will be in the stand enjoying the match, chatting to some of the friends I have made over the past year or so and enjoying a cuppa or two.

CENTRAL NEWS

ROUND UP BETVICTOR Southern Central Division One AFC DUNSTABLE perfect start to the season came to an end when they lost 2-0 away to today’s visitors CORBY TOWN Dunstable had two players dismissed and conceded two penalties that were successfully converted by Corby’s Stephen Diggin. DIDCOT TOWN notched up their first win of the campaign when a added time penalty, scored by Mark Francis earned them the three points at home to YAXLEY TOWN. BIGGLESWADE kept it in the family when recording their first win of the season as brothers Alex and Lawrie Marsh secured Biggleswade’s first ever Southern league victory with a goal each. As we all know now BEDWORTH UNITED were rejoicing in their three point haul away to THAME UNITED. The Greenbacks were in control for majority of the game and took the lead on 15 minutes through the man of the match Khaellem Bailey-Nicholls and extended that on 73 minutes with a superbly taken penalty by Alex Troke. However, from that point on Thame were pushing hard and scored through Andy Gledhill on 80 minutes making it a tense ending for Bedworth who held out for their first win of the season. Thame are yet to win in four games and will need to start picking up points if they are to keep in touch. Sadly there were just 77 spectators at this entertaining game. BARTON ROVERS fought out a 2-2 draw at home BEDFORD TOWN with all the goals coming in a 26 minute spell in the second half. This seems to be a trend for Barton as they have scored an impressive 10 goals in four games but have also let in 9. Early leaders BERKHAMPSTED were comfortable 4-0 winners at home to KIDLINGTON it was a day for the Stephen’s as Stephen Dodd scored a first half hat-trick and Stephen Hatch completed the win scoring in the 64th minute. AYLESBURY UNITED maintained their unbeaten start by notching an impressive 4-1 win away to DAVENTRY TOWN. HALESOWEN TOWN were beaten at home in front of the division’s highest attendance of the day, 504, two early goals from Jay Rolfe and George Ironton moved WELWYN GARDEN CITY into second spot of the early table. KEMPSTON ROVERS defeated WANTAGE TOWN 4-0 with the help of a Izale McLeod hattrick. Wantage have now lost all four of their opening matches. To complete last Saturday’s round up St NEOTS TOWN were heavily defeated at home to NORTH LEIGH losing 5-1. Early days but top goalscorers in the division so far are Tre Mitford of BEDFORD TOWN with 5 goals and Jonathan Lacey of BERKHAMPSTED with 4 goals. Bedworth United v CORBY TOWN

FLASHBACK

A look back at some interesting football events around todays date. 1st September 1892 After Everton had left Anfield for Goodison Park because of a rent increase a new club needed to be found to play at Anfield. That newly formed club – Liverpool FC – played its first-ever match on this day in 1892, beating Midland League champions Rotherham Town 7-1 in a friendly at Anfield. Around 100 turned up for that match but when Liverpool played its first competitive match – just two days later against Higher Walton in the Lancashire League – the Anfield crowd had swelled to around 200 to witness an 8-0 victory. From small beginnings….

1st September 2001 Yes, it really happened. Michael Owen scored a hat-trick as England beat Germany 5-1 in a World Cup qualifier in Munich. Really – it happened!

3rd September 2014 England had a dismal time at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil and when they played their first match after the finals - a friendly against Norway at Wembley - the fans showed their displeasure when just 40,181 turned up. That was a new low for an England crowd at the revamped stadium - but things were as bad on television. ITV showed the game live and it was up against the Great British Bake Off on BBC. Nearly twice as many people watched the Bake Off! The newlyappointed England captain Wayne Rooney scored the only goal from the penalty spot

4th September 1867 At a meeting at the Adelphi Hotel in Sheffield members of the Wednesday Cricket Club formed a football club to keep fit during the winter clubs. That club is now Sheffield Wednesday. 30

2nd September 1981 A bizarre abandonment at Chester’s Sealand Road in 1981. A League Cup First Round First Leg tie between Chester and Plymouth Argyle came to a halt when Chester ‘keeper Grenville Millington collided with an upright when making a save, breaking the post and presumably not doing his own health much good either. It couldn’t be fixed so the match was abandoned after 78 minutes and Plymouth were forced into another long round-trip to replay the tie a week later.


FLASHBACK 4th September 1905 Chelsea played their first match at Stamford Bridge on this day in 1905. Chelsea’s early history was a bit unusual. They were elected to the Football League without having kicked a football in anger and didn’t play at match of any kind at home until after they had made their debut in the Football League. Their League debut was a 1-0 defeat at Stockport County on September 2nd 1905 and two days later Chelsea played their first match at Stamford Bridge, a 4-0 victory in a friendly against Liverpool. Almost exactly a century later the same two clubs were playing at the same venue in a Champions League semi-final watched live by millions worldwide on something called a television - who would have guessed that in 1905! 4th September 1976 The attendance at Craven Cottage for Second Division fixture between Fulham and Bristol Rovers was 21,127 which was well over double the number that were at their previous home League match. The reason - it was the debut of one George Best in the Fulham side. Also in the Fulham side that day were Bobby Moore and Rodney Marsh but it was Best who stole the show scoring the only goal of the match after just 71 seconds. 5th September 2014 After a 503 day exile Coventry City finally returned to their home ground, the Ricoh Arena. A row with their landlords had seen them move home to Northampton Town’s Sixfields ground but a 68-mile round trip had seen their attendances nose-dive. The 27,306 Friday night crowd for their homecoming against Gillingham was more than ten sides the average for their League matches at Sixfields. Coventry beat Gillingham 1-0 in their first match at the Ricoh since 20th April 2013.

6th September 2014 The annual Non League Day has seen some bizarre and ingenious ideas to promote the non-league game and increase its attendances. On Non League Day in 2013 Anglian Combination side Bungay Town saw its attendance increase by nearly 70% when they paid their fans 5p to watch them play. A year later, on 6th September 2014, they made the headlines with another novel idea - they gave each supporter a punnet of mushrooms! It doubled their normal attendance although I doubt whether the idea will be taken up by many clubs in the Football League!

8th September 1958 17-year-old Robert Frederick Chelsea Moore made his debut for West Ham United, a 3-2 First Division victory over Manchester United at Upton Park. Bobby Moore went on to make 544 League appearances for the Hammers before moving to Fulham in 1974 as well as playing 108 times for England. Bedworth United v CORBY TOWN
