Greenie’s Greeting Mike Green Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Premier Plus Stadium, home of the Saints and the Mick George Academy, for today’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round Qualifying tie. Today we welcome the players, officials and supporters of Coalville Town and we hope your brief visit to Cambridgeshire is a pleasant one. Well here we go then, the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round, somewhere we haven’t been for forty years, in fact, since we faced (and lost to) March Town at our old Shortsands home. Almost a lifetime waiting to repeat that achievement and the day has now arrived where we have the opportunity once again to try and progress in the world’s most magical knockout club competition and aim to reach the dizzy heights managed by the 1966 Saints side who went on to face Walsall in the First Round Proper. Of course there’s also a small matter of a sizeable bounty on offer for the winners of today’s tie with £15,000 awaiting the victors to go with the £15,000 already accrued by both clubs and the chance to win £25,000. Saturday saw us play out an entertaining 0-0 draw here with Hitchin Town, who, themselves are in FA Cup action today. It was great to see Russell Short make his competitive bow for us, coming on in the second half as a substitute and we were a coat of paint away from taking all the points when we struck both post and crossbar with fine efforts from DSF and Nabs but it wasn’t to be and a share of the spoils was what we had to settle for. Tuesday evening saw a long trek to Lowestoft Town in the newly named City Security Services Limited League Challenge Cup and we took the opportunity to utilise the whole of the available squad. Unfortunately, we ended up on the wrong end of a 3-1 score-line with skipper Luke Knight scoring our goal. A busy weekend here at the Club, what with our SaintoberFest happening as well as the match today and I would like to thank everyone who came along last night to the Comedy Evening and those who are planning to attend this evening and of course tomorrow. Remember, we are so much more than just a football club and we are determined to make the Premier Plus Stadium the ‘goto’ venue for future events in St Neots. Finally, I’d like to wish the best of luck to Clemmo, Cass and all the lads today, the Town is behind you all…

PUMP UP THE VOLUME

Greeny


From the Dugout… With

A big thank you and welcome to you for your attendance today. It’s needed as we need and want your support and belief to help us attempt to make some history today. A warm welcome to our high flying visitors and opposition who have hit the ground running. So we know we will have to be operating at full tilt to compete and that’s exactly what we will be at. After a blip midweek in the league cup away at Lowestoft, we have been in good form unbeaten in 5 and that’s pleased me. But it’s consistency and cutting edge we need to improve on to look to challenge the likes of our visitors. So we need that run to extend and whereby we know defeats and below par performances will always occur. They need to be the minority. So what a better way to keep our form levels remaining high, than a home FA Cup game.. lets hope the magic returns like previous rounds. Enjoy the game

OPPONENT SPOTLIGHT

COALVILLE TOWN FC Joined League: 1926 Chairman: Glynn Rennocks A special welcome to all for our FA Cup Third Qualifying Round fixture. Our visitors are Coalville Town who are first time visitors and we wish their players, officials and supporters a pleasant (if not entirely successful) visit. Today is a somewhat ground-breaking occasion for two reasons. Firstly, it is the first time since 1979 that we have been this far in the competition and secondly, this is the first time in the modern era that we have enjoyed the fortune of three consecutive home draws in a National competition. Our visitors are rather unique in that they are relative newcomers. Formed 92 years ago the club burst from relative obscurity into the limelight as Coalville in 1995 and have progressed to Step Three of the pyramid not entering this famous old competition until 2004/05 when they went on at the first attempt to reach the First Round Proper – something St Neots took 87 years to achieve! Then nine years ago after their whirlwind rise to elite non-professional football they had their ‘day in the sun’ in the FA Vase Final at Wembley when they finished up as runners-up to Whitley Bay. Now in their third

season at Step Three they are no doubt planning further progression. In the FA Cup this season they have beaten Racing Club Warwick 2-1 at home and Buxton 4-1 at home in a replay after a 0-0 draw away from home. They arrive here today with a very enviable record of just one defeat in their last ten league and cup matches – that at home to Tamworth in the League Cup. Currently second in the league table two points behind leaders Kettering Town they have made their best-ever start to a season at this level. Our lads were in midweek action away at Lowestoft in the League Cup (result not known when these notes were penned) and interestingly Coalville’s last league victory was at Lowestoft last Saturday and they will be back here on 2nd February next year for our return league fixture.

CLUB HISTORY The club was established as Ravenstone Miners Athletic in 1926, and were originally based in the village of Ravenstone. They joined the Coalville & District League and were Division Two champions

in 1933–34 the club were renamed Ravenstone Swifts in 1947 and then Ravenstone Miners Athletic in 1951. They won the Division One title five times, including in 1952–53. In 1958 the club were renamed Ravenstone. They joined the Premier Division of the North Leicestershire League in 1974 and were runners-up in 1976–77. The club were relegated to Division One at the end of the 1978–79 season, but returned to the Premier Division after being promoted in 1980–81. After finishing as runners-up in 1985–86 and 1986–87, they went on to win the Premier Division in 1988–89 and 1989–90, and moved up to Division One of the Leicestershire Senior League in 1991. In 1995 the club moved to nearby Coalville after being unable to upgrade their Ravenslea ground, and were renamed Coalville Football Club. In 1996–97 they finished second in Division One and were promoted to the Premier Division. The club adopted their current name in 1998, and won the Leicestershire and Rutland Senior Cup in 1999–2000. They were Premier Division champions in 2001–02


and 2002–03, after which they were promoted to the Midland Alliance.

the Southern League as part of the restructuring of the non-League pyramid.

In 2004–05 the club entered the FA Cup for the first time, and reached the first round, eventually losing 1–0 at Second Division Wycombe Wanderers. They were league runners-up in 2009– 10, and the following season saw them reach the final of the FA Vase, losing 3–2 to Whitley Bay at Wembley Stadium. They also won the Midland Alliance, scoring 153 goals in the process and earning promotion to Division One South of the Northern Premier League.

PLAYER PROFILES

They were also Division One South runners-up and qualified for the promotion playoffs. However, they lost 2–1 to Chasetown in the semi-finals. The following season saw them finish as runners-up again. However, they lost the play-off semifinal against Mickleover Sports. In 2015–16 they qualified for the play-offs again. After beating Basford United 5–0 in the semi-finals, they defeated Shaw Lane 3–1 to earn promotion to the Premier Division. In 2017–18 the club won the Leicestershire & Rutland Challenge Cup with a 7–6 win on penalties against Loughborough Dynamo. At the end of the season they were transferred to the Premier Central division of

Fans Forum An open question and answer session

Tuesday 30th october 2018 7:00pm – the walker sports bar


It was a real shame to see the FA’s decision to remove Whyteleafe from this season’s FA Cup over what seems to have been an incredibly minor administrative mistake. The Essex-based club were kicked out of the competition just 24 hours before their second qualifying match against St Albans after the FA ruled that an ineligible player had been played during an earlier round. If their appeal is unsuccessful then it is believed that Whyteleafe will have to return the £6000 they received for beating Corinthian Casuals in the previous round; while a potential points deduction could also be on the cards as the ineligible player has also represented Whyteleafe in a Bostik Division One South game this season. In some respects I see the argument that rules are rules and if one is broken then a club should be punished, however on occasions like this it is plainly clear that the FA have a completely blinkered view of the realities of Non-League football. Clubs like Whyteleafe usually rely on the work of volunteers or part-time staff whose responsibilities stretch across numerous different duties. It would be perfectly reasonable to expect a Football League club who have a fully staffed administrative department, to abide by all regulations; however in Non-League the situation is completely different. My worry is that if the FA is insistent on stringently enforcing every single rule without looking into the context of individual situations then the volunteers throughout Non-League football may decide against continuing their involvement with their local sides for fear of making a potentially damaging mistake. It is absolutely essential that the FA develop a level of common sense with regards to their regulations and realise that a certain amount of leeway should be given in certain situations.


SOUTHERN LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION

St Neots Town 0 Hitchin Town 0 Perhaps the players on both sides had their minds on next week’s home FA Cup engagements after their respective heroics in the previous round but for the substantial crowd watching from the sidelines in the sunshine it was a disappointing afternoon. Perhaps to some extent it was predictable – the third consecutive draw between the two sides, and although Hitchin will be the happier with the result they remain rooted in the relegation zone. It was only St Neots second home goalless draw since March 2016 and will be regarded as two points lost rather than one gained. The woodwork twice denied St Neots in the second half and Hitchin were hanging on for the final twenty minutes during which time St Neots failed to make their superior possession count. With almost a full squad to choose from St Neots Manager Matt Clements opted for just the single change in his starting line-up bringing back Ben Worman, who was cup tied for the Romulus match, for Devante Stanley who was on the bench. There was also a second half club debut for former Ipswich Town player Russell Short who managed to get his name in the Referee’s notebook for a mistimed challenge. Hitchin began in confident style and for the first twenty minutes they were the better side. St Neots failed to show any kind of constructive approach giving the ball away and allowing their visitors to dominate play and openings. From an Isaac Galliford corner Lewis Ferrell was unmarked and he tested Harry Reynolds with a low shot and then Alex Anderson worked his way into a clear shooting position but finished weakly. In a five-minutes spell

midway through the first half Jack Green squandered two glorious chances to put Hitchin ahead, first volleying over the bar after good work by Macsen Fraser and then firing wide from a Matt Spring corner. Gradually St Neots grappled their way back into the game and Claudio Ofosu switched wings to see his teasing cross palmed away by Michael Johnson and then from a Johnny Herd corner, Nabil Shariff glanced his header wide of the far post. Six minutes before the break the underworked Johnson did well to save a stinging shot from Shariff and then visiting skipper Josh Bickerstaff (one of three former St Neots players in the visiting side) cleared a Ben Worman chip off the undefended goal line after his keeper had gone ‘walk about’. The half ended with Ofosu moving inside two defenders to unleash a rising shot that was too high to bother the goalkeeper. If the first half had seen Hitchin just shade possession that was as good as it got for the visitors. After the break (possibly with their ears stinging) St Neots set about improving their fate. It took just fifteen seconds from the restart for Shariff to almost break the deadlock as he chased a ball to the bye line to chip the goalkeeper only to see the ball rebound from the inside of a post to rebound into the grateful keepers’ arms. That set a marker for the home side who bombarded the visiting goal but could not find a clinical finish. Taylor Parr headed over from a Matt Miles corner, Dion Sembie-Ferris shot wide when well placed and a second chance for the same player set up by Ben Worman was again sent wastefully wide. Both sides sent on substitutes with Hitchin stiffening their defense and St Neots trying to add

imagination to their attack with leading scorer Dylan Williams and Gary Wharton both introduced. Sembie-Ferris was prominent hitting the cross bar with a dipping shot before setting up Wharton who brought a save from Johnson. SembieFerris then had a shot blocked and Tom Wood headed narrowly over from a Johnny Herd corner. With substitute Trey Charles having a rare late chance for Hitchin blocked by a defender it was left to Wharton to put St Neots’ final chance over the bar in added time. St Neots: Reynolds, Miles, Herd, O’Malley, Wood, Parr, Sembie-Ferris, Peters, Shariff, Worman, Ofosu Subs: Williams (for Ofosu 60 mins), Short (for O’Malley 63 mins) Wharton (for Peters 72 mins), Stanley and Olaniran Cards: Short (Y – 75 mins) Goals: none Hitchin: Johnson, Fraser, Chesmain, Spring, Ferrell, Bickerstaff, Anderson, Galliford, Thake, Belgrove, Green Subs: Forde (for Thake 52 mins), Charles (for Green 52 mins), Dowie (for Spring 63 mins) and Mollison Cards: none Goals: none Referee: Robert Evans (Northampton) Attendance: 376

Commercial Break Gary Atyes Well it’s a good thing my hair was grey when i arrived at St Neots Town but i'm not sure my heart can take another 4-3 win in injury time after being 3-0 down in the Emirates FA Cup. Especially when there is £9k at stake! But hey what a few months it has been since i arrived and how good did it feel when Dion's goal went in! It was great to be sat next to one of our new club partners Paul Goldstraw who through his Goldstraw Goldsmiths business is sponsoring what is our main stand. It now becomes the Goldstraw Stand for the next two years. Paul is hoping all the games are 4-3 thrillers although i did point out that was unlikely! Win or lose today its a great occasion for the club and it’s galvanised both the supporters and the town. Lets get behind Matt, Jack and the lads and be the 12th man. I wanted to mention todays match sponsors CPSL Mind, who have an office in St Neots and do some great work. You will see their literature and information available today and I encourage any of our supporters suffering with mental health issues to contact them for what is a confidential service. Squeeze Football and Stuart Baker whom many of you will use on social media for their fantastic local football service are our matchball sponsors. Finally look out for some offers on player sponsorship's this month, a fair number have now gone but it’s a great way to support the club and in particular align yourself to a player!

SOUTHERN LEAGUE KO CUP

Lowestoft Town 3 Home striker Kieran Higgs completed a personal hat trick to dump St Neots out of the Southern League Cup after their long midweek trek to Suffolk. As he prepared his team for their important FA Cup engagement at the weekend Manager Matt Clements understandably opted to rotate his squad with the object of resting key players and giving game time to his fringe players and as a result the line-up looked unbalanced in the first half. Into the starting line up came Russell Short for his full debut, skipper Luke Knight after suspension and Gary Wharton and Dylan Williams after injury with James Peters, Matt Miles, Nabil Shariff and Claudio Ofosu making way. This was St Neots first trip to Lowestoft for 46 years in the old Eastern Counties League days, and they may have been surprised to see former player Adam Tann in the home line-up as he left St Neots three seasons ago after 65 appearances for the club. Lowestoft were quick out of the traps and they almost snatched an early lead when a lengthy snap shot from Henry Pollock surprised Harry Reynolds who was relieved to see the ball clip the crossbar on its way to safety. Defender Rossi Jarvis up for a set piece then shot wide after finding space in the area and it was newcomer Russell Short who recorded St Neots first attempt on goal after ten minutes, but his shot was blocked. The over-fussy official booked Tom Wood

St Neots Town 1

for an innocuous challenge and then Adam Tann made his presence felt as Reynolds went full length to push away his header from a Conor McKendry corner. In the first half McKendry on loan from Ipswich Town was a thorn in the side of the St Neots defense who were guilty of giving the wide man far too much space. However, the first goal came from a difference source when Pollock’s sublime through ball set up Kieran Higgs for the opening goal after 24 minutes. Higgs then had a shot blocked and McKendry saw his shot deflected for a corner as Lowestoft sought to exploit their possession superiority. The best St Neots effort of the half came from Dylan Williams who curled his shot narrowly over the bar after neat work by Ben Worman. There was an early second half setback for St Neots when after 50 minutes a defender missed a clearance and Kieran Higgs was on hand to double the lead for the hosts. St Neots responded by introducing Nabil Shariff and Claudio Ofosu and this not only added to their attacking options but also seemed to boost their confidence. Russell Short had a shot blocked whilst at the other end Reynolds clawed a Ben Fowkes shot ono a post. Home keeper Elvis Putnins then produced the save of the match after 67 minutes to deny Worman and Shariff looking sharp up front had one shot saved and placed a second over the bar. With St Neots now beginning

to dominate possession it was against the run of play after 82 minutes when man of the match Kieran Higgs completed his hat trick from close range following a breakaway home attack. If St Neots were deflated it did not show and they deservedly finished up the match with a consolation goal from Luke Knight – his first since 7th April.
