Hotshots!

U15s: Westwood Wanderers Hoops 2 Ashridge Park 4

Ashridge make better use of the conditions as four strikes from range see them overturn a 2-0 half-time deficit on a vast, sloping pitch in windy conditions against fellow mid-tablers Westwood Wanderers Hoops. Reg Ryan finds the net twice with a little help from the home keeper, whilst Jack Gillingham and Dan Baker also net with spectacular efforts from outside the box. James Riley takes star player for his efforts at the heart of a hard-working rearguard action in the first half, coupled to some well-judged forward forays in the second.

Derby Win for Park

U15s: Ashridge Park 5 Wokingham & Emmbrook Rangers 2

A scrappy encounter sees Ashridge emerge with the points in this Wokingham derby against the bottom side in Division 5. The home team concede a sloppy goal in the second minute, but quickly recover to lead 3-1 before letting their opponents back into the game with an own goal just before the break. Two second half goals are enough to settle matters. Reg Ryan grabs another hat-trick, with Jamie Cole on the scoresheet for the second game running, and Tayseer Alam netting the fifth. Marcus Coppen takes the star player award for some great creative play in midfield.

Comeback Kings

U15s: Spencers Wood Hurricanes 3 Ashridge Park 9

Ashridge produce a sensational response after a rocky 10-minute spell finds them 3-0 down early in this match at second-placed Spencers Wood Hurricanes. Dan Baker leads the fightback with two goals as the visitors overturn the deficit to lead 4-3 at the break, before running riot in the second half. Top-scorer Reg Ryan bags four, whilst Jamie Cole, James Riley and Antonio Baciu are also on target.

Ashridge Out In Shoot-Out Drama

U15s: Ashridge Park 1 Curley Park Rangers Spitfires 1 
(Curley Park won 4-2 on penalties)

Curley Park survived a second-half onslaught from the home side to drag this cup-tie to a penalty-shoot-out. Reg Ryan found an equaliser for Ashridge on the hour after the visitors had taken the lead with a headed goal from a corner after 15 minutes, but the home side couldn't grab a second despite constant pressure. In the shoot-out, Joe Savory kept out the second penalty from the visitors to give Ashridge an early advantage, but Park failed to convert the next two to leave the visitors victorious.

Present for Panthers

U15s: Ashridge Park 2 Pinewood Panthers 3

Ashridge throw away a game they dominated for the most part, failing to convert numerous chances, and then gifting two second half goals to their opponents. Reg Ryan scored twice to put Ashridge ahead in the first quarter of the match after Pinewood had led against the early run of play.

Late Strike Sees Ashridge Off The Mark

U15s: Teddington Athletic Hurricanes 2 Ashridge Park 3

Ashridge overcome a determined fight-back from the home side on the first of this season's treks to the wilds of Middlesex, with Reg Ryan striking 5 minutes from time to earn our first three points. Earlier, newcomers Jack Gillingham and Tayseer Alam had given Ashridge a seemingly-comfortable 2-0 half-time lead, but a more robust performance from Teddington saw them draw level mid-way through the second period. Keeper Joe Savory takes the star player award for continuing to put himself in the line of fire even after taking a boot to the face when diving to collect at the feet of a marauding forward.

Greens Grind Ashridge Down

U15s: Ashridge Park 1 Westwood Wanderers Greens 4

A valiant rearguard action from the home side against an accomplished-looking Westwood side new to the league this season. An Antonio Baciu penalty following a foul on Reg Ryan saw Ashridge lead against the run of play, before a fine run and finish saw the visitors level before half-time. A scrappy effort following a corner put Westwood in front mid-way through the second period, before two late penalties gave the scoreline a more emphatic feel. Jack Clayton and Marcus Coppen were outstanding filling in for the absent James Riley in central defence, with Jack getting the nod for Star Player.

No Joy On Opening Day Again

U15's: Hurst Twyford Hurricanes 5 Ashridge Park 0

A bigger, stronger and quicker Hurst side ease to a comfortable victory on the opening day of the season. Ashridge carved out some decent chances, but without top-scorer Reg Ryan and spearhead Jack Clayton this week, the finish was missing, whilst despite lots of honest endeavour at the back, the visitors always looked vulnerable against the aerial ball and the quick break. A good debut in central midfield from Jack Gillingham wins him our Star Player award this week

Ashridge Park Royals U17 9 Sandhurst 0

We find ourselves in our final game of the season on a bitterly cold April morning.  How fitting that our final game should be against long-term opponents Sandhurst.  The game was switch to St Crispins as no pitch was available at their venue.

 

Apr 09, 2016

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.

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

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.

 

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

After yet more overnight rain, the pitch was deemed to be playable for an encounter with an in-form Caversham Trent team.  The key to success in this match was to start well and put the opponents on the defensive.

30 January 2016: Camberley Town U 17 0 Ashridge Park Royals U 17 5

After torrential rain had lead to the postponement of an entire schedule at St Crispins, we were surprised and delighted to find such the pitch in such excellent condition at Camberley.  The pitch seems quite long and narrow, and it was necessary to adapt our tactics accordingly.

20 January: Ashridge Park Royals U17 3 Elstead Sharks 0

We finally returned to League action after a few weeks of rain with the visit of a much improved Elstead Sharks.  We had beaten them by a large margin early in the season, but they had recruited 6 new players and had won 3 of their last 4 games.

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.
