A warm welcome as usual to all our supporters and all connected with St Neots FC for todays’ FA Trophy match. Our first game of this present season was against St Neots in their backyard and it was a very tight affair. Every time we seem to play there we go down to 10 men and it was no different a few weeks ago. We both battled out a 1-1 draw and under the circumstances I felt it was a fair result. We always say it would be great to get a run in the FA Trophy but it has not been the most lucky of competitions for myself or the club either. It was good to see Halesowen have a good run last season and just missing out on a Wembley appearance at the last hurdle, so it shows it is possible at our level to get into the realms of dreamland. I would like to Image: Š Barry Wheway welcome a new signing to the club this week. We have replaced Ricardo Dudley, who has left for Barwell with a natural right back, wing back Phil Bilson. Phil is an educated young man with bags of potential and I am greatly looking forward to working with him. It is great to see folk returning bit by bit as we all try to fight off and live with this pandemic. I am especially enjoying the new tots sessions we have set up with Fiona, James, Cole and Kev. They have put in a lot of time and effort into developing these areas of the football club. I really enjoy watching these young players running around and having so much fun and getting so excellent coaching on the basics of the game.They are supported by a lot of the Bedworth United football academy players who are taking their first steps in coaching so it is excellent experience for them too. As always it is going to be a tough game, please stay positive to the last second.

Enjoy the game. Stuart Bedworth United v St NEOTS TOWN

Representing the SAINTS: St NEOTS TOWN PLAYER PROFILES 2020-21 Louis Chadwick – Goalkeeper Son of former U’s and Manchester United player Luke Chadwick, Louis is a young, highly rated goalkeeper who joined on work experience from League Two Cambridge United for the 2020/21 season. Dylan Martin – Goalkeeper Dylan has earned his place in the first team squad after a string of fine performances last season for the youth team and will be looking to push Louis hard for the number one shirt. Liam Bennett – Right Back Liam joined in the summer of 2020 from AFC Sudbury. Another hot prospect who, despite his small frame, is very strong, exceptionally quick and can deliver pinpoint crosses. Aaron Smith – Left Back Aaron had a superb, debut season for the Saints before the season was cut short due to COVID-19, missing just one league game and Saints were delighted when he put pen to paper for the coming season. A strong tackling, marauding left-back. Sam Goode – Centre Back Sam is in his second season with the Saints after his release from Cambridge United and has grown in stature as time has gone on. Tom Dickens – Centre Back Tom, or Ossie as he is more commonly known has re-joined on loan from Cambridge United for the 2020/21 season after an impressive spell during last season’s aborted campaign. A towering centre half with bags of potential. Dequane Wilson-Braithwaite – Centre Back Dequane is a left sided defender who has played in all the pre-season friendlies and manager Barry Corr saw enough to sign him. Was with both Tottenham Hotspur and LutonTown as a youngster. Tarik Dallas – Centre Back Tarik is a towering defender who played in all of the Saints pre-season fixtures, a player who wins more than his fair share of aerial battles. Was at Peterborough United until the 17 and then moved on to AFC Kempston Rovers. Spells at Bedford FC and Harpenden Town followed before joining the Saints in the summer of 2020 Sam Gomarsall – Midfield Gommers was the first player to commit for the 2020/21 campaign, much to the delight of the management and supporters alike. His work ethic is second to none and as one of the more senior members of the squad, he’s a great role model for the younger lads. Lee Watkins - Midfield The engine room of the midfield, this lad can run forever. Lee joined us last season upon his release from Cambridge United and has grown into stature over the last twelve months. 6

Bedworth United v St NEOTS TOWN


Adrian O’Hara – Midfield Adrian is another product of the youth academy and manager Barry Corr saw enough in his performances to reward him with a place in the first team squad. Big and strong, the hope is that Adrian goes on to cement a place in the starting eleven on a regular basis. Ben Worman – Midfield Ben is a talented midfielder who has joined Saints on loan from League 2 Cambridge United. Numbers Bishops Stortford, Chelmsford City and a previous spell with the Saints as his previous loan clubs. Myles Cowling – Midfield Myles is another youngster who has joined on work experience from League Two side Cambridge United. Diminutive but as strong as an ox, big things are expected from this young man in the coming seasons. Jake Battersby – Striker Jake is a young striker with an eye for goal who joined in the summer of 2020 with a huge future ahead of him. He is equally at home playing out wide or down the middle. Leon Lobjoit - Striker Leon joined Saints in the summer of 2020 after a somewhat nomadic career so far. After a remarkable season with the now defunct Buckingham Town, a move to Northampton Town, for whatever reason, didn’t quite work out and he returned to non league football after a number of loans. Has already shown how deadly he can be in pre-season with a number of goals as he looks to enjoy his football once again. Ryan Robbins – Striker Ryan is a powerful, strong target man who joined in the summer of 2020 after leaving Corby Town and has forged a very productive partnership with Leon Lobjoit. Deceptively quick and deadly in the air, he brings great experience with him at Step 3 and 4 and will be a massive asset to the squad and the younger players. Arel Amu – Striker Aru joined the Saints in early October 2020 from near neighbours St Ives Town after his playing opportunities became limited. The 25 year old striker has bags of Step 3 / 4 experience, after spells with Dunstable Town, Hemel Hempstead Town, Walton Casuals, Cambridge City and St Ives Town

MANAGER Barry Corr Barry joined St Neots as first team manager in January 2020 as part of the growing collaboration between ourselves and Cambridge United, combining the role with his full time job as a youth development coach at the League Two club. During his playing career, centre forward Barry numbered Cambridge United, Southend United, Exeter City, Swindon Town, Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United as his former clubs.

Bedworth United v St NEOTS TOWN


Tough Times at the OVAL but we are OK

These are unprecedented times which affect us all. Whilst football is important to us it is no different to other aspects of life. First and foremost we must do all we can to stay safe. At the Oval procedures have been put in place to protect as best as possible all our people especially children. It is hoped we can prevent an outbreak of Covid19 as this would be devastating to the community and the football clubs continued operation. The Government, FA and The Leagues requirements such as track and trace, sanitisation and correct distancing are essential to help protect us. Please let us all abide by these simple rules. Whilst most of us do, some still neglect the situation and risk putting the well being of others in jeopardy. Our Community football club is important to us all, It would be awful if the pandemic closed us down. Policing the restrictions is not an easy task. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to politely remind others of their need to comply.

“ Come on guys lets all do our bit “

The Oval as a facility continues to improve year on year. The revamped club house is now complete and is I’m sure you will agree far more suitable for our needs. Once the Covid restrictions are over it will be a valuable income stream for the football club. Can I take this opportunity to sincerely thank all those who helped with the project especially, Stuart Plumbing, Dulux, Chris Coventry, Geoff Sanderson and Peter Randle for the materials they supplied. A special mention of course to Stu Storer the first team manager, who gave many hours of hard graft to see the job finished. As most similar establishments the finances of the club have took a battering over the last six months. Pitch hire, bar takings, sponsorship all greatly reduced. Losing the end of year Finals from the various local leagues and of course the Nursing cups leaves a large hole in our annual budget. ,The good news is everyone at Bedworth is working hard to ensure the Club is in a good position to keep going forward and there are a lot of positives. We have no debts and the bank balance is still ok. Our general trading is increasing week by week and as long as we stay Covid free, should soon get back to normality. Sponsorship will take time as some of our perennial backers must be feeling the pinch also. A huge thank you to all our sponsors who have helped through these difficult times. BEDWORTH FOOTBALL ACADEMY The beginning of September saw the launch of the new academy set up and run by Jamie Lenton and Stuart Storer both are Fifa A coaches and qualified Teachers. 57 students have been enrolled to date. I am confident that the Bedworth academy will be a success for the club as well as cementing better futures for the local lads I must end with a big thank you to all the volunteers who keep this proud club running and to you all for your continued support.

Rushden and Diamonds u21 1 Bedworth United u21 3 The Greenbacks went into this game unbeaten under their new management team of Iyeseden Christie and Kev Burke. Jack Bent was recalled to the line up after his time away with the first team, filling in at centre half for the injured Lewis Allton. Ethan Sander made his debut at right back. Bedworth started the game well and were nearly rewarded in the 3rd minute, Warwick Hurst firing home from the edge of the box only for it to be ruled out for offside. A long ball from the resulting free kick led to a comedy of errors inside the Greenbacks box, leaving the Rushden player to smash the ball home from two yards out. Bedworth dominated the game from then on reducing Rushden and Diamonds to long range efforts, Dan Moore pulling off an unbelievable save from one of those efforts. Cameron Dunn went close from distance as did Ethan Taylor. Bedworth finally got level in the 39th minute through Jarro Scott. The striker found a yard of space, faked to pass and fired the ball into the bottom corner from outside of the box. HT 1-1 The second half started as the first ended with the Greenbacks on top, Taylor forcing a fine save early on. Joseah Yassin also went close from distance. Bedworth took the lead 65 minutes, a ball from keeper Moore caught the opposition keeper in no man’s land outside his box, Scott stole the ball from him and calmly slotted home. Chances for Dunn,Yassin, Bent and Scott all begging as Bedworth continued to dominate the game. The Greenbacks finally put the game to bed in the 87th minute. Pressure from Hurst forced a mistake from the home sides defence, his pass found Josh Brown who in turn found Scott, a fine piece of skill took him away from two defenders before sliding the ball beyond the keeper for a well deserved hat trick. Full Time 1-3 Team: Moore, Sander, Bent, Wells, Brown, Taylor, Dunn,Yassin, Scott, Jones, Hurst. Subs: Kollie, Ajao, Okafor.

Bedworth United v St NEOTS TOWN


The international break very rarely affects Non-League clubs, but Non-League is increasingly influencing the international scene. Each season we see more players deservedly earn moves into the Football League – and some even go on to reach the absolute peak. Over the last seven months the football pyramid has become even more divided, with ‘Project Big Picture’ now trying hard to increase the gap, but the importance of lower-league clubs to the product on the pitch has never been more obvious. Six players in Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad have had stints in Non-League and there were five in the side Ryan Giggs picked for Wales when the two teams met last week. Nick Pope started the friendly fixture at Wembley having begun his career in the Eastern Counties League with Team Bury before progressing to Bury Town in the Isthmian League. Following his move to Charlton Athletic, Pope went on loan to Harrow Borough, Welling United, Cambridge United and Aldershot Town for more crucial experience of first team football. The back-up England keepers against Wales, Jordan Pickford and Dean Henderson, are also no strangers to Non-League. Pickford had loan spells at Darlington and Alfreton Town while Henderson played in goal for Stockport County just over four years ago when they were in National League North. He’s also pushing to become Manchester United’s number one. Centre-back Tyrone Mings impressed in senior football at Yate Town and Chippenham Town in the Southern League before a successful trial at Ipswich Town forged the start of his top-flight career. Dominic Calvert-Lewin made his England debut, and scored, in the 3-0 win over Wales. A debut goal was nothing new to the Everton striker, as a 17-year-old he bagged on his first appearance for Stalybridge Celtic against Hyde on Boxing Day when Sheffield United sent him out for game time. On New Year’s Day, in the reverse fixture, he scored twice and set up three. Danny Ings also got in on the act at Wembley, scoring his first goal for his country via a bicycle kick. Ten years ago, he was netting in Non-League at Dorchester Town on loan from Bournemouth. Many others in the England squad either started or showed their talents in the lower reaches of the Football League before stepping up into the Premier League spotlight. Non-League football and its clubs play a vital role in developing players just as much as the topflight academies – every player has a different path and their roots should not be forgotten.

AWARD FOR FORD!!

Ford picked up the Award titled We only do positive in recognition of his support and promotion of the FA Respect campaign. Ford is a parent of one of the players in Bedworth United’s Under 15’s. Martin Jones (A previous winner of the FA Grassroots coach of the year) said of Ford. “Ford is everything you could wish for in a parent, always willing to help out in whatever way he can, be that officiating in games, helping out at training, organisng events. Basically Ford is a mainstay of the team and his encouragement and promotion of fair play amongst not just the players but the parents as well is brilliant. I can honestly say if every parent involved in junior football was like Ford then junior football would be so much better than it is now.” Ford was presented his award by Kevin Shoemake CEO of the Birmingham FA at half time during The Greenbacks game against Dunstable on Saturday. Ford is pictured here with Kevin, Martin and his wife Leonie.
