Threadbare Park Share Spoils With Whirlwinds

U14s: Laurel Park Whirlwinds 2 Ashridge Park 2

A goal early in each half from top-scorer Reg Ryan earns an injury-hit Ashridge team their first point in three games away to mid-table Laurel Park Whirlwinds. Joe Savory takes the star player award, keeping the visitors in the game with some fine saves.

Ashridge Wilt in the April Sun

U14s: Laurel Park Tornadoes 5 Ashridge Park 2

A good first half from the boys in blue as they establish a 2-1 lead with goals from Jack Clayton and Dan Baker. A fluke equaliser right at the outset of the second half proves to be a key moment, as Ashridge struggle to keep going on a hot and sunny April morning. Laurel Park strike twice more with unchallenged headers from corners, before capping their performance with a quality strike late on. Reg Ryan is denied by the woodwork twice, but Ashridge are well-beaten in the final analysis.

Rotherfield Romp

U14s: Rotherfield Utd Colts 4 Ashridge Park 0

Rotherfield take full advantage of an Ashridge side missing most of its usual left-side in a midweek evening catch-up game. Three first half goals have the visitors reeling, and more damage could have been done. A much improved second-half performance follows, and the blues could count themselves unlucky not to register at least once as Antonio Baciu finishes off a fine move with a well-directed header only to be denied by the linesman's flag, whilst Reg Ryan hits the crossbar. In-between, Rotherfield add insult to injury by nicking a fourth on the break.

Park Hold On To Claim Win

U14s: Ashridge Park 2 Laurel Park Tornadoes 1

A match with a bit of a post-Easter feel sees both sides labouring a little on a heavy pitch and in the unfamiliar sunshine. Despite conceding the lion's share of possession, Ashridge create the better chances and open up a 2-0 lead just into the second half, before Laurel Park strike back, first having a goal ruled out for offside before pulling one back with a long-range strike. The home team weather some late pressure to come away with the three points. Reg Ryan and Bertie Wilson with the Ashridge goals.

Ashridge Cruise to Sandhurst Win

U14s: STBG FC Rangers 1 Ashridge Park 6

A game played out almost entirely in the Sandhurst half sees Ashridge create and miss a host of chances as well as bagging half a dozen on their way to a comfortable victory against the bottom side in Division 5. Reg Ryan grabs a hat-trick to take his season tally to 24, whilst Marcus Coppen, Bertie Wilson and Jamie Cole also find the net for the blues.

10-Man Park Find Late Winner

U14s: Ashridge Park 2 Spencers Wood Hurricanes 1

Ashridge overcome a blizzard and an availability crisis to claim a key win against second-placed Spencers Wood. Despite having only ten on the field, and with key central midfield and forward players missing, the boys put on a gutsy, resilient display in arctic conditions. Reg Ryan struck from long range in the first half, and although a valiant defence was breached early in the second, Ashridge got back on top in the closing stages, with Reg Ryan rounding the keeper for his second six minutes from time.

Westwood Capitalise as Fatigue Sets In

U14s: Ashridge Park 1 Westwood Wanderers Hoops 2

Our first game since January 13th sees the boys relinquish a half-time lead as a lack of match-time takes its toll on a sticky surface. Reg Ryan put Ashridge ahead ten minutes before the interval, but other chances go begging before Westwood are gifted an equalizer early in the second period. The visitors claimed a deserved victory with a well-worked second mid-way through the half.

Winning Start to 2018

U14s: Ashridge Park 5 Berks County Jaguars 2

A classic game of two halves saw Ashridge ease into a 3-0 half-time lead, only to switch off in the second period and allow Berks County to take control and reduce the arrears to a single goal. Fortunately the home side woke up in the last ten minutes, with two more goals securing the points against what has been a bogey team for us. Reg Ryan and Jack Clayton each bagged two goals with Dan Baker getting the other.

Baker Brilliance Fells Wood

U14s: Spencers Wood Hurricanes 2 Ashridge Park 4

A fine Ashridge display full of intricate passing movements and dynamic attacking play is capped by a brilliant solo goal from Dan Baker as Ashridge run out winners in the clash between 2nd and 3rd in Division 5. Dan had earlier put Ashridge in front, and his fine second came between another brace from top-scorer Reg Ryan as the visitors eased into a 4-0 lead. A late wobble took some of the shine from the performance, but overall it was also a fine defensive display against a free-scoring side, with James Riley outstanding once more.

Ashridge Up To Third With Westwood Win

U14s: Westwood Wanderers Hoops 2 Ashridge Park 5

Ashridge overcome a mini-injury crisis and an early second-half wobble to register a comfortable win and move up two places to third in Division 5. After an own goal set us on our way, man-of-the-match Dan Baker extended the lead, before top-scorer Reg Ryan got back amongst the goals with a hat-trick.

Defences on Top

U14s: Ashridge Park 1 Rotherfield Utd Colts 1

Another well-contested game between these two evenly matched sides ends all square as the respective back lines find the measure of the forwards, and restrict clear-cut chances to just a few at each end. Rotherfield took the lead mid-way through the second half, but Dan Baker quickly struck back for the home side. Both teams had opportunities to win it in the latter stages, but the draw was a fair result.

Park Slide to Defeat in the Hurst Mud

U14s: Hurst Twyford Hurricanes 5 Ashridge Park 2

A brace from Jack Clayton in a bold first half display from Ashridge saw us take a deserved 2-1 lead against Division 4 side Hurst Twyford Hurricanes in this 2nd Round cup game, but with the slope and the deteriorating surface against us in the second half, the home team rallied strongly to book their place in Round 3.

Ashridge Win Against Depleted Marlow

U14s: Marlow United 3 Ashridge Park 9

An unsatisfactory game, which descended into near-farce in the second half. Our opponents started with only 8 players and finished with two more carrying knocks and unable to compete effectively; whilst Ashridge reduced initially to 10 and then to 9 players to avoid the match becoming a total embarrassment. Goals from Reg Ryan (3), Jamie Cole (2), Dan Baker (2), Bertie Wilson and Jack Clayton secured the points in difficult circumstances.

Ashridge Edge Out Rotherfield with Cup Comeback

U14s: Ashridge Park 4 Rotherfield Utd Colts 2

A cracking cup tie, full of good football on both sides, sees Ashridge proceed to the second round of the U14 Plate after trailing at half-time. Rotherfield score in the first and last minutes of the first half - the second a 25-yard screamer to the top left corner - to edge an even first half 2-1, but Ashridge battle back with three second half goals to take the spoils. Reg Ryan (2), Mason Bennett and Dan Baker from the penalty spot find the net for the home side.

First-Half Salvo Sinks Sandhurst

U14s: Ashridge Park 4 Sandhurst Town B&G FC Rangers 2

Four first-half goals from man-of-the match Reg Ryan put Ashridge in control against Sandhurst, and the boys manage the game out well this week to secure a confidence-boosting win at the end of a long barren streak.

Frustration for Park as Late Goals Steal a Point for Jaguars

U14s: Berks County Jaguars 3 Ashridge Park 3

Two late goals deny the Ashridge side a much-needed win after an improved display on the astroturf at Bracknell. After falling behind to a break-away goal in the first half, Ashridge responded with strikes from Bertie Wilson, Reg Ryan and Marcus Coppen, and controlled the game comfortably for much of the second half until lapses in the last five minutes let the home team back in.

Ashridge Blown Away After Bright Start

U14s: Ashridge Park 1 Laurel Park Hurricanes 4

The season opener ends in defeat as Ashridge fail to capitalise on some promising play in the early stages, and gradually lose control of midfield as Laurel Park get stronger as the game goes on. Reg Ryan grabs the consolation goal for the blues.

Laurel Park Whirlwinds 2 Ashridge Park Royals U17 2

Another week, another crucial match.  This time, it was a visit to Laurel Park, our main competitor for the runner’s up spot. We had drawn with them in a lively encounter at St Crispin’s earlier in the season, and their abilities were well established illustrated by a run to the semi final of the Cup where they had defeated three First Division teams before finally succumbing to the League’s dominant outfit.Ashridge were slightly under-strength with 2 players missing injured, so the bench had 3 players on it, compared with the five on the home team’s bench.

12 March : Shinfield Rangers U18 1 Ashridge Park Royals U17 2

Another Saturday, another tricky looking away match.  We had been drinking at the fountain on eternal luck when we managed to beat Shinfield 5-4 in our match at Crispins back in December.  Shinfield had subsequently gone on a run of 6 victories and 2 draws since then.

5 March: AFC Caversham Hurricanes U17 2 Ashridge Park Royals U17 5

After 2 disappointing defeats we faced a tricky looking encounter with an impressive AFC Caversham team.  With the squad down to its bare bones of the mere starting 11, many of whom were still shaking off the after-effects of a lively Friday evening, and a vast muddy undulating pitch, we were fearing a tough morning.

27 February: Ashridge Park Royals U17 1 Whitegrove Pythons U 17 2

So, remarkably, we find ourselves hosting our final league match of the season on a deceptively chilly February morning.  There are still 4 tricky looking away fixtures to go, but this is an opportunity to go out in a blaze of glory.
Early portents were good, with Dan’s long ball setting up Alex for a one-one-one with the stand-in keeper, who unfortunately saved the goal-bound effort.

February 20: Reading Rangers 3 Ashridge Park Royals U17 1

So the moment of truth!  We travelled to table-toppers Reading Rangers, unbeaten all season, with the objective of winning all three points to match their points tally for the season, and throw the championship wide open.  Anything else, and realistically we would be looking at best at a runners up position in this, very successful, season.

West byfleet U18 3 v 1 U17 Park

Feb 20, 2016

U17 Park 6 v U18 Reeves

A bitterly cold wind tested the supporters endurance. The match started poorly for Ashridge as they conceded a goal after 2 minutes to a simple through ball. We struggled to get into the game and Reeves had more chances to increase their lead.

February 6: Ashridge Park Royals U17 2 Caversham Trents U17 0

Ashridge Park Royals (U17) 1 Laurel Park Whirlwinds (U17) 1

Today we welcomed a strong Laurel Park side to St Crispins. Traditionally Laurel Park had been something of a bogey team of ours, and with the visitors already progressing to the quarter final of the Cup after vanquishing  two Division 1 teams as well as a Division 2 team, it was clear that we would be in for a difficult encounter.

Today we welcomed our rivals from Sandhurst, the only opponent in this season’s division that we played last season.   We expected Sandhurst to be well-organised defensively, and we had to make any opportunities count as chances were likely to be few and far between. We were also wary of their noted prowess from set pieces.

Twyford Comets 1 Ashridge Park Royals 5

We travelled to near-neighbours Twyford Comets for what was surprisingly, our first ever League encounter, in this, our opening game of the 2015/16 season.  There was a full complement of players, and with 7 goals scored in our 2 pre-season games, hopes were high.
