Grass Roots Talk Good Evening and welcome to The Grassroots Stadium for this Spartan South Midland Premier Division tie. Tonight we welcome the players, officials and supporters of Cockfosters to Tring, and we hope you enjoy your short stay with us. We also give a warm welcome to our match officials- Referee- Mike Heavey with his assistants Martyn Meadows and Ian Stewart. Today’s match is sponsored by- Ralph Griffiths and we would like to thank Ralph for his continued support and his match reporting which is recognised as being unbiased and factual by comparison to some others.. This is the second meeting of the season, having won the away fixture back in August 2-1 with a 93 rd minute Graham Hall goal which came 1 min after Cockfosters had equalised. Our guests today are one of the teams suffering most from the wet weather and will be pleased to have received the news that the league has been extended by a week. This will mean a few fixture changes so keep an eye on the web. site for the latest news. It was one of these changes which enabled the reserves to swap their midweek fixture from Barton to our ground last Wednesday They then went on to gain a great 2-1 win, leap-frogging their opponents and giving themselves a good chance of winning the league. They then followed this up with a 5-1 win on Saturday in the Challenge Shield. The first team also had a good win at Stotfold although it did take two Trevor Gibbs penalties to win the game. However 3 more points and we move up to 9 th in the table. The race for the title is still wide open, with Hanwell still being favourites with games in hand, however they are starting to drop points as they still battle to catch up on games. Ampthill will be concentrating on the league after being knocked out of the Vase at the quarter final stage. They will be disappointed at this but have done the league proud as did Hanwell. Creeping up on the rails are Colney Heath who beat second placed Berkhamsted last Saturday and are undefeated in the league for quite some time. We can still have a say as we have to play all these teams in the next few weeks. The first team are at home again on Saturday to AFC Dunstable which is always another tough fixture.

Finally enjoy the game and give your support to all involved.

History of Tring Athletic: Formed in March 1958 by a group of local men who contributed app. £2,000 towards the cost of the land, fencing, changing rooms etc .Players, Committee members and friends carried out the work while the team played on another pitch. Originally formed for youngsters under the age of 21, the team won many trophies in the West Herts. Div. 3 including the Div. 3 title 3 times in 5 years, often playing against adult sides.

The 70’s/80’s

The Club went through a lean time and it was decided to scrap the upper age limit. Many former players returned which resulted in another successful period in the early 1970’s. Many fine players turned out for the Club and went on to play for professional/senior clubs. In the mid -seventies the Club nearly folded and the ground was sold to the Council. The reserves were disbanded and the First team dropped down through the leagues. It was decided to turn to youth again. This formula enabled the Club to work back through the leagues and by 1986 we were competing in the Premier Div. and the reserves were resurrected.

South Midlands-The 90’s.

In 1988 the Club joined The South Midlands and as a result gained Senior status with The Herts. FA In 1989 we entered in a 3 year ground sharing agreement with Tring Town. In 1992 the first team moved back to Miswell Lane, where the Reserves had continued to play. The side established itself in The South Midlands and gained promotion to the newly formed Senior Div. in 1993. In 1994/5 season, the First Team reached the final of the Senior Div. Cup While the Reserves were finalists in the Apsley Junior Cup for the second year running. In 1996/7 after leading the Div. for the whole season, some poor results at the end found us finishing 3 rd. We also reached the semi- final of the Herts. Charity Shield and won the St. Mary’s Cup beating 5 Senior sides including Isthmian League Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted Town In 1997/8 after winning the last 14 games we lost out on the Title on goal difference of 2. The Reserves won their league by 10 points winning every home game. The following year we won the South Midlands Senior Div. Cup and also The St. Mary’s Cup for the second time, defeating neighbours Tring Town in the semi-final in front of a crowd of 350, mostly Athletic supporters. In the league after suffering just one defeat in 28 games, we finished 3rd. The 1999/2000 season proved to be one to remember. £ 50k was spent on new changing rooms and extending the Clubhouse and over 1000 people turned up to watch a Watford X1 refereed by Graham Barber and Graham Poll.. We also formed a third team a Vets side and a Ladies team. The season turned out to be our most successful. Not only winning the Senior Div. by 11 points, we also reached 5 finals. Winning The Herts. Charity Shield, Herts. Senior Centenary Trophy and the Cherry Red Books Trophy in it’s inaugural year. We were narrowly beaten 1-0in The Senior Div. Cup and the reached Final of the St. Mary’s Cup which was never played because of a back log of fixtures. We were awarded the Houghton Cup for achievements in outside competitions. The Management team were also voted Managers of the season. We lost only 6 out of 60 games all season. The Reserves reached the Final of The Intermediate Cup and the A Team finished runners up in the West Herts. Div.

The New Millennium

We continued our success into the new one (2000/01) by retaining the Herts. Senior Centenary Trophy (again beating Wormley Rovers 2-0) and the Cherry Red Books Trophy (Virginia Water 1-0). The Reserves won the League title and a newly formed B Team claimed the runners-up spot. The following season (2001/02) we won the Herts. Charity Shield for the 2nd time beating Letchworth 4-1. The A Team reached the Apsley Junior Cup final and the B Team won the sporting award.

Season 2002/03 – More success followed as we capture the Herts. Senior Centenary Trophy for the 3rd time, to

become the first club to do so. We finished 3rd in the table and won the League Cup for the 2nd time, to make 12 major trophies in 7 years. We were also finalists in the Cherry Red Books Trophy. The A Team finished runners up as did the Under 16's in their first season, the B Team won the sporting award for the 2nd year running and the Ladies had a great run in the Women's FA Cup. For the 3rd year running Darrel Bodimeade won an award for the best playing surface, which is just reward for the tremendous job he does for the club.


Season 2003/04 –Following our failure to secure floodlights at Miswell Lane we entered into an historic alliance with Tring Town to play our first and reserve team football in season 2004/05 at Pendley where lights are already in place. The main focus was to be to raise the funds needed to build a new Clubhouse, the previous building burnt down in March 2003. Miswell Lane will be retained and will be used by our A, B, and Ladies sides. This new arrangement with Tring Town secured senior level football in the town.

Season2004/05 – New season at a new ground in a new division with fantastic facilities. First team finished 6th in

the Premier Division and also won the St Mary's Cup for the 3rd time defeating Hemel Hempstead in the Final. We were also Runners Up in the South Midlands Floodlit Cup Final losing on penalties to Oxhey Jets. Played in the F A Vase for the first time.

Season 2005/6 –The Club entered the F A Cup for the 1st time in its history but was defeated in the prelim round. In a disappointing season the highlight was a victory over Watford in the Herts Senior Trophy with a large crowd enjoying a 1-0 win. Defeat in this competition came at the hands of Stevenage Borough of the Conference league

Season 2006/7-The first team finished mid table after a difficult start to the season. Went 3 rounds in the e.on

FA Cup, losing to Kings Lyn, the biggest side in the competition at that time. The events of the year however came after the season had completed. Mick Eldridge and Ray Brimsom stepped down as first team managers after 17 years. Ron Brimsom also after 16 years decided to hand over the reigns and our Hon. Secretary Ralph Griffiths also stood down after 25 years in that position. A wealth of experience which thankfully will not be lost, as they are all staying on in some capacity.

Season 2007/2008-.The new management team of Phil Casserley and Terry Nightingale ended in glory at The County Ground, Letchworth, with the First Team lifting The Herts. Charity Shield for the 3rd time.

Season 2008/2009- A reasonable league campaign saw the first team finish in 8th position.

However in true Athletic tradition, it was in the cups in which we excelled, reaching 4 semi-finals. After being 4-2 up with just a few minutes to go, 3 late goals meant the first one slipped away. This strengthened the resolve of the whole team and in a remarkable last seven days of the season, three trophies were gained. Winning the League Challenge Trophy and Premier Div. Cup for the first time and also defeating local rivals Leverstock Green to pick up the St. Mary’s Cup for the 4 th time Ex-player, Ben Williams re-joined the club as reserve team manager mid season and will lead the side in the Suburban League next season.

Season 2009/2010- After last season’s tremendous cup haul, this year the first team finished without a trophy.

However they finished third in the league, the highest position the club’s history so far. With the ground getting the higher ground grading required, the management and players will be hoping to put in a challenge for the title in 2010/2011. The B Team did pick up some silver ware winning The Stanley Rous Challenge Cup at Hemel Hempstead Town’s ground.

Season 2010/2011- The first team finished runners up in The Premier Division. They also won The St. Mary’s Cup beating Leverstock Green in the final and reached the final of The Floodlite Cup, losing 2-0 to Royston Town

Season 2011/2012- With a new Management set up and several new faces in the First team, we were pleased to

finish in the top six and reach 3 cup semi-finals. All our sides performed well, with one of our youth sides going through the league season undefeated. The ladies won their league and reached the final of the County Cup, losing to Arsenal reserves.

- Mixed season with the 1st team winning their initial F A Cup tie at Bedfont and then losing in the next round to Ashford Town after a replay, in the F A Vase we lost at first hurdle to FC Romania. In the League we finished just below half way, lost on penalties to Hadley in the semi final of the Premier Division Cup and were finalists in the St Mary's Cup losing to local rivals Berkhamsted. The "A" Team, under Dave Adamson and James Bevan won the West Herts Peace Memorial Cup for the first time in the Club's history. unfortunately the Ladies team withdrew from their league through lack of players. SEASON 2012/2013


COCKFOSTERS FOOTBALL CLUB The Club was originally formed in 1921 by local residents and the ground was allocated to the Club by Lady Bevan, from her family Estate. The first league entered was the local Barnet League and moderate success was enjoyed as the Club moved through the lower divisions. The 1930’s saw the original club joined by the successful Cockfosters Juniors and the ‘new’ Club joined the stronger Wood Green League. Promotion was again achieved through the lower divisions, culminating in season 1938-9 with the first of two ‘trebles’ won in the Club’s history, winning the Wood Green League’s Premier Division, the League Cup and the Barnet Cup. After the war the Club moved it’s two sides into the Northern Suburban Intermediate League, a very strong local league of that time. Season 1946-7 saw the Club finish as runner-up in the League’s First Division and promotion into the Premier Division. The next season saw relegation but in season 1949-50 the First Division title came to Chalk Lane and in the very next season the runners-up spot in the Premier Division. The late 1940’s also saw success in a number of local cup competitions but for most of the 1950’s the Club struggled with no honours coming its way. The start of the 1960’s saw a re-awaking of the Club and the Northern Suburban League’s First Division title again came to Chalk Lane, with the Premier Division Championship following in the very next campaign. The Barnet Cup and the Barnet Charity Cup finals were reached regularly with both trophies being won on a couple of occasions. Season 1966-67 saw the Club gain entry to the Herts Senior County League and the very first season saw the league’s Division One title at Chalk Lane. Twenty-five seasons were spent in the Herts Senior County League and all but the very first were spent in the league’s Premier Division. In that time the London F.A. Intermediate Cup was one twice, the Herts F.A. Intermediate Cup once, with three other appearances in the final. The Herts Senior County League Cup (The Aubrey Cup) was one twice, with two other losing finals played. In season 1978-9 the Club won their second ‘treble’ – the Herts Senior County League’s Premier Division title, the Aubrey Cup and the Herts F.A. Intermediate Cup, under the managership of former player Roy Reeder. The following nine seasons saw the Premier Division title won twice more, both under different managers, firstly in season 1980-1, when former Barnet player Jeff Voyce was in charge and then again in 1983-4 with Colin Bell at the helm. During this period the Aubrey Cup was again won and the Club twice finished as runners-up for the Premier Division Championship. During the twenty-five years in the Herts Senior County League the Club’s Reserves team also enjoyed a great deal of success with an appearance in the final of the Herts F.A. Junior Cup. The League’s Reserve Cup was won, with two other appearances in the final. The Division One Title was won twice and the runners-up spot achieved on three other occasions. Throughout most of the 1980’s the First and Reserve teams were rarely out of the top four positions in their respective divisions when the final league tables were published. In 1991 the Club gained ‘Senior Status’ from its Parent F.A. (London) and an application was accepted by the London Spartan League for entry into their Premier Division.


Following the amalgamation of the Spartan League with the South Midlands League in season 1997-8, the club failed to retain its premier division status and was placed into the league’s first division. The first decade of the current century saw several changes to the club’s fortunes, unfortunately not all for the better. The first team managed by former player David Craig, gained promotion back to the premier division in Season 2006/7, which also resulted in acceptance into the FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history. Just two seasons later, following planning application refusals by The London Borough of Enfield (our landlords) for necessary ground improvements, we were relegated back to division one, this despite finishing outside of the relegation positions. Fortunately, albeit too late, these planning refusals were overturned following a successful but costly appeal. Following disappointing results during the early part of the 2010-11 season, the management team of Neil Ewing and Ron Syrett stood down and were replaced by Mark Adams assisted by Vince Purdue, who had previously had a successful period managing Northwood Reserves in the Suburban league. In the October of the 2011-12 campaign Mark Adams resigned due to family commitments. Vince Purdue and then Don Bennett had periods in charge of the First Team, but by mid-March '13 both left due to personal commitments, and the Club promoted Reserve Team Manager Mick Roche to take over the First Team. Season 2012-13 saw Mick Roche continuing at the helm, assisted by Dave Clark and Fabio Valenti and a successful season culminated in taking the division one runners-up spot and achieving promotion back to the premier division for the 2013-14 season. Our Reserves compete in Division One of the Spartan South Midlands League’s Reserve Section where they are managed by Steve Rolfe assisted by Chris Agapiou and our Under 18 youth team, managed by Paul Boxer assisted by Steve Foot compete in the Southern Counties Floodlit Youth League.

Sat 8th Mar 2014 League Stotfold 1-2 TAFC First team TAFC goals: Trevor Gibbs (2 pens) Athletic were back in action following postponements in their last two matches and came out victorious against Stotfold. Manager Julian Robinson gave a first team debut to young reserve centreback Ryan Coote and also a return to the first team for Paul Jeffreys. Conditions were far from ideal, the pitch was bumpy and Athletic were facing a strong wind in the first half. Stotfold started marginally the better forcing a corner after just 6 minutes and then taking the lead after 10 minutes. A ball was played into Athletics area, defender Adam Toone, off balance, looked to clear long but mis-hit the ball which fell nicely for Nyasha Sagwete to easily beat keeper Liam Watson. Stotfold could easily have increased their lead after 17 minutes but keeper Liam Watson raced off his line to thwart the dangerous Nyasha Sagwete. Athletic should have had a penalty in the 22nd minute, Chris Vardy beating the offside trap only to be pulled down from behind, but to the astonishment of everyone the officials waved played on. The game began to take on a typical end of season match, with neither side managing to dominate and guilty of giving the ball away. Athletic won their first corner of the game after 36 minutes leading to them equalising. The corner was cleared but the loose ball fell to Trevor Gibbs who first time chipped over the advancing defenders, Jack Seaton was on hand to chest the ball down and as he was about to shoot was pushed from behind resulting in a blatant penalty. Defender Matt Clark was straight red carded for the offence by the referee. Captain for the day Trevor Gibbs stepped up to blast the ball home from the spot. Taylor Collins later earned himself a yellow card following a deliberate handball into the home sides net following an Athletic free kick. Half time: 1 - 1 At the start of the second half Stotfold brought on Gus Stewart for Tremayne Charles. The game was scrappy, both sides were mis-hitting the ball as a result of the uneven bounce on a bumpy pitch. Athletic brought on Martin Skinner for Ollie Butler in the 57th minute and a few minutes later nearly scored following a corner, but Stotfold managed to clear the danger.


After 62 minutes Athletic took the lead following another penalty. Chris Vardy again skilfully beat a defender inside the area but was then pulled down. Trevor Gibbs stepped up again and placed the penalty into the corner of the net. Athletic should have built on this but it was Stotfold who had two opportunities to score. Athletic keeper Liam Watson firstly tipping over a fierce shot from Nyasha Sagwete in the 70th minute and then saving low down. Athletic were fortunate not to concede a penalty in the 72nd minute, Shane Carthy went through, Trevor Gibbs lunged from behind felling the player, but just like Athletics shout for a penalty early in the first half the officials waved play on. Stotfold with only ten players for the whole of the second half never gave up, they were a constant danger on the break with striker Nyasha Sagwete always a worry for Athletics defenders. Home keeper Michael Johnson, apart from the penalties, never really had a save to make whereas Athletics keeper Liam Watson was much the busier. Athletic will be pleased to have come away with a win and in the process doing the double over Stotfold this season. The home fans thought a draw would have been a fair result having created the most chances. Scorers: Stotfold Nyasha Sagwete 10 minutes TAFC Trevor Gibbs (2 penalties) 36 minutes,62 minutes

Wed 5th Mar 2014-League Barton Rovers 1-2 TAFC Reserve team TAFC goals: Own Goal, Oliver Butler On Wednesday 5th March, the good people of Tring had 2 choices. Stay at home on the sofa and watch the pampered prima donnas of England lumber to 1-0 win in a meaningless friendly against Denmark or get down to Cow Lane to witness a veritable ripsnorter of a game as Tring and Bartons Reserves battled for Second Place in the Suburban League North. Pity the fools on their sofas. From the off Barton looked razor sharp - with a couple of lively forwards testing the Tring back four to its limits. Tring defended stoutly, throwing bodies at the ball in the box to keep Barton out but things were looking ominous. Tring just couldn't get their attacking game flowing at all. Tring slowly got into their stride. Vinnie Iannone robust, holding the ball up superbly, linking with Paul Jeffrey and Olly Butler to start to examine the Barton back line as the game began to ebb and flow. As usual, Tring were looking dangerous from set pieces. An Adam Toone long throw evaded everyone and was scrambled away. A ball was fired goalwards and Vinnie flicked it on for it to glance off the crossbar. Barton picked and probed at the other end but Tring held firm - Ryan Coote his usual excellent self at the heart of defence, repelling the Barton forays with aplomb. At the same time, Mr Johnson of Roseberry Way chuntered under his breath as Rooney was caught offside again and continued his incessant whingeing at the referee. He argued with Mrs Johnson, who wanted to put Eastenders on. On 35 mins Tring took the lead. Paul Jeffery swung in a vicious corner that struck a hapless Barton defender and ballooned into the net. 1-0. Half-Time - Barton Rovers 0 Tring Athletic Res 1 (England 0 Denmark 0) The Second Half continued in the same vein. Vinnie Iannone had somehow survived the half time interval but Ryan Caterer didnt and Chris Clark replaced him. Barton were on top but Tring were standing firm, resolute. Dave Salmon marshalling his troops in combat. Barton couldn't create a chance of note. Mr Johnson was drifting off on his sofa at the lacklustre showing on his TV Screen. Mrs Johnson had gone to bed. On 66 mins, the dam broke and Barton equalised. Barton got in down the left and the cross evaded the Tring defence and a Barton striker shinned it in. 1-1. Surely Tring would now fold and fall apart under the pressure? Not on your life. Salmon roused them again and, from nowhere, Tring took the game to their opponents. Paul Jeffrey fired a shot - it slipped from the grasp of the keeper. A prostrate Iannone just couldnt poke it home. The lads were on the up. On 77 mins came the magical moment. Trevor Gibbs fed Jeffers expertly on the left. After 3 months, Jeffers is now approaching reasonable levels of match fitness and he took off down the left - leaving the full back in his wake. He got to the bye line and fired the ball across the box. Goldenboy Olly Butler was coming round the back and he thundered the ball into the net showing fantastic composure and technique. 2-1. Goal of the Season. Barton bounced back - this was a cracker of a game - but Tring were not to be denied and they ground out a fine win against Chris Juraseks old team to move into second place in the League. Who cares what happened at Wembley? Team - Garrett, Tomlin (Smethers) , Jarvis, Salmon D, Coote, Toone, Caterer (Clark), Gibbs, Iannone, Butler O, Jeffery P.
