Boroughbridge AFC Sunday Match Reports 07/08
August to December
02/09/07 - Scholes 2-2 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
A Bridge side thrown together on the morning of the game did well to come away with a point. Danny Webster put bridge ahead on 8 minutes with Ricky Caine levelling for the home side six minutes later. It did not augur well for Bridge when Aaron Robinson put Scholes in front 20 minutes from time but Bridge came back strongly and shot stopper Ollie Barton proved his worth as an outfield player with the equaliser 5 minutes later.
07/09/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 2-1 Ripon City Magnets - League
This was another game that could have gone either way with both sides having good spells of possession and some gilt edged chances but it was Bridge who pinched all three points with an Ollie Uffindall header 2 minutes from time. Previously Ollie Barton had given the home side the lead on 20 minutes with Stephen Fletcher responding for Ripon mid way through the second period.
09/09/07 - Pudsey Amateurs 3-2 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
Bridge suffered their first defeat of the season and will certainly have to improve on this performance if they are to be amongst the front runners this season. Danny Webster and Chris Stephenson were on target for Bridge with Paul Wilkinson, Richard Feuce and a Rob Giles penalty the scorers for Pudsey.
16/09/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 5-3 Sherwood - League
Bridge's Claro League side completed a successful weekend thanks, in the main, to a string of fine saves from Alastair Hogg and some woeful Sherwood finishing. The home side started poorly and it was no more than Sherwood deserved when Shaun Latimer put them in front after only 15 minutes. A minute later the visitors conceded a free kick 20 yards from goal with the quick thinking Matt Uffindall stroking home the equaliser past a surprised Steve Weatherall. Even this did not spark Bridge into life as they gave possession away time and time again but Sherwood failed to press home their advantage until 2 minutes before the break with Latimer again the beneficiary of some sloppy play. The half time break seemed to benefit Bridge as it was a much improved performance after the interval. On 50 minutes Chris Stephenson brought the teams level, a minute later Ollie Uffindall gave Bridge the lead for the first time and on 56 minutes Stephenson struck a tremendous 25 yards free kick into the top corner of Weatherall's net. Sherwood came back strongly but Hogg showed all his experience and produced two exceptional saves before Frazer Lancaster finished off a good move to reduce the deficit in the 82nd minute. For the second time in the match Bridge responded within a minute as Paul Eagling broke through to beat Weatherall at the second attempt and hijack the points. Unfortunately for Bridge a good weekend of results was spoilt by the news that their Sunday Team Manager Ian Paffett was having to give up the post due to work commitments.
Man of Match - Chris Stephenson
30/09/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 14-2 Pudsey Amateurs - County Sunday Cup
A remarkable scoreline is made the more fascinating by the fact Bridge went to Pudsey earlier this month and lost 3-2. On a playing surface conducive to good football an Ollie Uffindall brace and one from Paul Eagling put Bridge in the driving seat after only 23minutes. Three minutes Jim Cross pulled a goal back for the visitors only for them to go in shell-shocked at the break as Uffindall hit a six minute hat trick and Webster grabbed a couple in a ten minute spell before the half time. Uffindall completed his double hat trick on 52minute and the scoring did not abate with the introduction of brother Matt who grabbed himself a brace within 7 minutes of coming on. Ross Mardon then had the misfortunate of putting through his own goal for Pudsey's second before the Uffindall completed the scoring with Ollie taking his tally to eight and Matt completing his hat trick with a last minute penalty.
Man of Match - Ollie Uffindall
07/10/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 1-3 Wrose Bull - County Sunday Cup
A youthful Bridge side can have no complaints as they exited the County Sunday Cup at the first hurdle. Wrose went ahead in the 5th minute when indecision between Tony Harrison and his defence allowed to Chris Hawker to nip in for the opener. Chris Stephenson and Danny Webster worked assiduously in midfield to get Bridge back into the game but their effort were negated when Steve Baldwin added a second as Bridge failed to clear a corner. The second half did not get off to a good start either with Bridge claiming the ball went out of play before Andy Hurd added a third in the opening ten minutes. Credit to Bridge they never gave in and eight minutes from time gained some consolation with a goal from Matt Uffindall.
Man of Match - Chris Stephenson
14/10/07 - Harrogate CSC 2-4 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
Bridge's victory was soured by a late injury to Steven Paffett that looks likely to keep their skipper out of action for several weeks. The game itself was between two evenly matched sides and with 12 minutes to go, thanks to some fines saves from George Medd and Alastair Hogg, the only goal separating them was an Ollie Uffindall goal set up by Ollie Bone. Then on 78 minutes a brilliant individual goal from Paul Eagling was quickly followed by a second from Uffindall. It seemed like game over but CSC had other ideas and on 82minutes Neil Blaken fired in a free kick and Biagio D'Amore added a second soon afterwards. Bridge still had something left in the tank and just before the final whistle Uffindall eased the nerves when he headed home a pin-point Darren Fowles cross.
Man of Match - Ben Clayton
21/10/07 - Kirk Deighton Rangers 1-4 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - FA Challenge Cup
Despite having a registration list of 50 players Bridge experienced a similar malaise with their Sunday fixtures and in the end had to call off their Reserve team Harrogate FA Cup tie at Harlow Hill Club. After an outstanding first half display from the Deighton keeper Bridge took the lead through Paul Eagling in the 55 minute and Steve Warburton added a second 15 minutes later. Deighton replied immediately but further goals from Ollie Barton and Olie Uffindall gave Bridge a comfortable victory.
28/10/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 5-2 FC Boston a.e.t. - Knockout Cup
Playing with six 17 year old in their side Bridge pulled off a real surprise with the extra time victory over FC Boston. Bridge youngsters were not overawed and only some excellent saves from Andy Caine that restricted them to a single goal lead from a smart Johnny Brear finish on 34 minutes. Boston turned the game around in the second half with a long range effort from Danny Baeza that deceived Harrison and 15 minutes from time Martin Charlton slotted home their second. Seven minutes later, after three attempts had been scrambled clear, Uffindall headed home the equaliser and two minutes into extra time he put his side back in front. Uffindall went on to complete his hat trick with a delicate chip and Paul Eagling finished off the scoring when he ran from the centre of the park, weaved his way past two defenders before unleashing a 20 yard shot that left Caine helpless.
Man of Match - Josh Kidd
04/11/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 5-2 Thorner - League
The home defence was caught napping in the first minute and Joey Collins took full advantage to put Thorner in front. Phil Wix got his side back on terms nine minutes later only for Bridge to be still in the dressing room three minutes into the second half when a clinical finish from James Lee put the visitors back in front. Parity was restored within a minute through Ollie Uffindall and in the 57th minute Wix put Bridge ahead for the first time. Manager's Craig Kitching's decision to replace Uffindall and Andy Layton with 25 minutes remaining raised a few eyebrows but his decision was vindicated within two minutes when Paul Scaife beat Tom Collins with a smart finish. Two minutes later Phil Wix completed his hat trick, as Bridge parading 8 players less than 18 years of age, secured the points.
Man of Match - Phil Wix
11/11/07 - Coach & Horses 1-7 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
Bridge had little difficulty overcoming a struggling home side who were only able to muster eleven players for the fixture. Danny Webster opened the scoring for Bridge on 12 minutes with Dan Saxon adding a second eight minutes later and Johnny Brear putting Bridge firmly in control three minutes before the break. Tom Deighton pulled one back for Coach two minutes into the second half only for Brear to restore the three goal cushion on 70 minutes and Craig Kitching in a 4 minute cameo made it five. Andy Layton got in on the act with a sweet strike on 80 minutes and a minute later Uffindall completed the scoring. The match was dedicated to the memory of local lad Thomas Jacobs who was tragically killed in a road accident earlier in the week.
Man of Match - Andy Layton
18/11/07 - Atlanta 2-9 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - FA Challenge Cup
On a cold, wet, windy morning not conducive to good football Bridge defied the conditions to produce a sparkling second half performance to progress to the semi finals of the Harrogate FA Challenge Cup. An early Ollie Uffindall goal was all that separated the sides at half time but a plethora of goals after the break gave the final outcome a very lopsided look. Uffindall started the rout as he latched on to a long clearance from Tony Harrison to volley home his second two minutes into the second half and five minutes later a 25 yard screamer from Ollie Barton and a Phil Wix goal put the visitors in control. Wix then weaved his way through the home defence for number five before Darren Beeforth quickly reduced the arrears with a brace in the 72nd and 73rd minutes. Bridge soon regained the advantage as Ollie Bone whipped in a cross for Uffindall to complete his hat trick and Bone then got on the scoresheet when Dave King could only parry a Wix effort. Uffindall went on to add his fourth and Ben Clayton completed the scoring in the last few minutes.
Man of Match - Danny Webster
25/11/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 1-1 FC Boston - League
After recording sixteen goals in their last two fixtures this was a more keenly contested encounter between two good footballing sides with the result just about reflecting the balance of play. Boston bossed the midfield from the early stages but did not get the breakthrough until the 37 minutes when Nathan Christopher set up Danny Baeza following a swift counter attack. Paul Eagling put Bridge back on level terms three minutes into the second half and thereafter both sides had chances to win it with Andy Caine producing two fine saves for Boston and Ross Mardon (twice) and Ollie Barton clearing efforts off their own line for Bridge.
Man of Match - Chris Stephenson
02/12/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 7-1 Thorner - League Cup
Although the heavy and consistent rain made playing conditions difficult Thorner's laisser-faire attitude made Bridge's passage to the next round of the League Challenge Cup that much easier. Phil Wix soon got rid of any hangover with a hat trick, Chris Stephenson who was the motivating force behind much of Bridge's good work also bagged three with Dan Saxon the other scorer for the home dies. Andy Britton was on target for the visitors. The victory was marred when it was later learnt that keeper Tony Harrison broke his tibia as he slipped clearing the ball.
Man of Match - Chris Stephenson
09/12/07 - Regent Inn 6-4 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
In this top of the table clash, in difficult conditions, both teams provided a very entertaining game. Regent Inn got off to a great start, when defender, Damien Newman, fired in at the far post. Within the first ten minutes, it was two nil, when Gareth King pounced on a defensive error, to slot home. Boroughbridge finally, 'got out of bed', when in the 11th minute, David Berniston, shouldered the ball in from a corner. The two goal lead was then restored from the penalty spot by, Jake Hutchinson, after keeper Hogg had brought down the forward. At 3-1, it looked a 'tall order' for Boroughbridge, but they eventually took full control, and by half-time, they were leading by four goals to three, after two strikes from Ollie Uffindall(26 penalty and 30 minutes), and a deflected effort by Chris Stephenson(45 minutes). In the second-half, Boroughbridge were in total control, and should have increased their lead, Phil Wix twice going close, and claims for a penalty after Johnny Brear was uphended, fell on 'deaf ears'. This gave Regent Inn the impetus they required, and in the 70th Minute, Hutchinson scored his second of the game. Regent Inn gained in strength, and but for the heroics of keeper Hogg, they would have been in the lead. The pressure finally paid off, when two strikes from Matt Drury(83 and 90+3) finally saw Regent Inn home. The final goal coming, when Boroughbridge keeper, Hogg, had gone up-field for a final throw of the dice corner kick. Well done to all of the lads who turned up for this fixture, leaving many others who didn't, to 'HANG THEIR HEADS IN SHAME'.
Man of Match - Chris Stephenson
23/12/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 2-2 Bardsey - League
All the goals came in the second half with Paul Scaife and Ben Clayton on target for Bridge and Rob Hough and Jamie Thompson responding for the visitors.
30/12/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 2-3 Coach & Horses - League
For the second successive week an injury time goal, this time to Coach & Horses has cost Bridge points and on both occasions they have conceded the first goal. Scorers for Bridge were Ollie Barton and Phil Wix with Joe Collins, Dan Bass and Matt Howgate on target for the visitors.
