Harriers Too Hot to Handle

U17s: Ashridge Park 2 Windsor Youth Harriers Gladiators 5

Table-topping Windsor preserve their 100% league record with a comfortable win at St Crispins against a depleted Ashridge side. In a game packed with quality finishes, the visitors strike early only for Ashridge to come from behind to lead at the mid-point of the first half with two more goals for Toni Baciu. A brace in the last ten minutes of the half restores the visitors' lead at the break, before a screamer early in the second period provides a cushion. A scruffy fifth rounds off affairs just after the mid-point of the half.

Titans Toppled

U17s: Binfield Titans 1 Ashridge Park 4

Ashridge start slowly on the astroturf at Binfield and fall behind in freakish fashion as a cross from the right flank finds the back of the net. Binfield lend the away side a hand with the leveller as the keeper punches an inswinging corner directly into his own net. Ashridge take control in the second half with Jack Clayton and Toni Baciu (2) settling matters, with a few other chances going to waste. Sachin Vara takes star player, running the game from the centre of midfield in the second period.

Ashridge Out-Gun Bullets

U17s: Binfield Bullets 0 Ashridge Park 3

Ashridge carry the superior fire power as they claim a comfortable (in the end) win on a billiard table of a pitch at Kings Academy in Binfield. After surviving a few defensive slips early on, Ashridge take the lead just before half time through man-of-the-match Adam Williams, who then nods in a corner to extend the lead just after the hour. Further chances go begging before Toni Baciu rounds off the win with a last-minute tap-in.

Park Soar Above Hawks

U17s: FC Holyport Hawks 1 Ashridge Park 2

Ashridge make use of their newly-acquired aerial prowess to pull off a cup shock at Division 3 side Holyport Hawks. After Adam Williams puts the visitors in front with a powerful header from James Riley's free-kick, Jamie Cole leaps high to nod in Toni Baciu's corner for a second midway through the first half. The home side rarely look like getting back into it, and only narrow the deficit courtesy of a hotly-disputed penalty award 15 minutes from time.

Heads-Up Park Claim Panthers Point

U17s: Burnham Junior Panthers Yellow 3 Ashridge Park 3

An unprecedented brace of headed goals help Ashridge to an entertaining draw at Burnham. After Felix Galla-Taylor nods in Adam Williams' excellent cross for an early lead, Park are on the back foot for much of the half before conceding twice on the half hour. The defecit is wiped out immediately as Toni Baciu charges down a clearance to level. Burnham strike early in the second half, but Ashridge come on strong as the game progresses and level again through Adam Williams's header ten minutes from time.

Taplow Edge To Narrow Win

U17s: Ashridge Park 0 Taplow United Youth 1

A solitary strike just after the hour is enough to take the spoils for the visitors in this hard-fought game. Taplow enjoy the best of the first period before Ashridge come back into contention in the second, but two well-organised defences create a game with few clear-cut opportunities. Josh Palmer takes the star player award for a confident display at the heart of the Ashridge back four.

New-Look Ashridge Rein In Stallions

U17s: Caversham AFC Stallions 3 Ashridge Park 6

Five debutants for the U17s provide a breath of fresh air as football returns. Undaunted by an early setback as Caversham take the lead on 10 minutes, Ashridge create a stack of chances, before finally levelling just after the half-hour. The dam then bursts and four more goals follow in the next 25 minutes to leave the blues firmly in control and hunting more goals, before a combination of over-exuberance and tiredness allow the home side to strike back. Three of the debutants among the goals: Ice Goswell (2), Sachin Vara and Adam Williams, with Jamie Cole and Antonio Baciu also on target.

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.

A familiar story as we played a match with 10 men again, no ones fault just the way things have been this season. This is if I am correct the 5th time this season we did not have a full complement.

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.

 

Feb 27, 2016

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.
 

Feb 20, 2016

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

Another back to the wall display. We started with 10 and finished with 9. We conceded 3 bizarre goals (for different reasons) having taken the lead. The match turned on a unbelievable chain of events in the second half.

 

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.

Ashridge Park Royals 5 Camberley Town Rebels 0

On a perfect morning for football, Ashridge started the game with no little purpose.  Within the first 5 minutes we already had 4 corners, on 6 minute Dom missed narrowly with a diving header from Owen’s cross, Ben W 20 yard drive was saved well by the keeper and then Ben C’s shot from 30 yards was caught by the busy keeper.

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.
