Boroughbridge AFC Sunday Reserves Match Reports 07/08
26/08/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 2-1 Headingley Rovers - League
Bridge got their season off to a good start and in an evenly contested game they snatched the points in the last minute. They took a fortuitous lead when Rovers keeper Paul Diamond was left flat footed by one of his own players but Rich Hunt levelled for the visitors before the break. Both sides missed some good opportunities and with the game seemingly heading for a draw Andy O'Hare came up with the winning goal in the last few seconds of the game.
Man of Match - Ollie Bone
29/08/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 2-1 Kirk Deighton Rangers - League
After going behind after only three minutes Bridge battled well to come away with the points. A sweet finish from Wayne Fisher got them back on terms five minutes before the break and Johnny Brear scored, what proved to be the winner, in the 66minute.
Man of Match - Darren Fowles
02/09/07 - FC Boston Res 3-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - League
Bridge Reserves lost their unbeaten record with a 3-1 defeat at FC Boston. Chris Chapman's posterior was on target for Bridge.
23/09/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 2-0 Leeds City Adelers - League
A brace from Ollie Bone and some outstanding goalkeeping from Alastair Hogg gave Bridge the points in a game they were outplayed for long periods. Bridge took the lead when Ross Mardon cut back inside his marker and crossed for Bone to knock in the opener with the second coming through the young midfielder chasing a lost cause and nicking the ball out of Adelers' keeper Tony Cooper's grasp. The visitors were far from happy with the decision and their frustrations were intensified in the second half when they had a seemingly good goal disallowed for offside. At other times however Adelers showed they are one of the better sides in Division 2 with Chris Moxon and Richard Howard only denied by three top drawer saves from Hogg and on the occasion the ball got past the veteran Bridge keeper Steve Kirby was on the line to hoist it clear.
Man of Match - Steve Warburton
30/09/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 2-2 Hampsthwaite United - League
A competent first half performance saw Bridge take a deserved 2-0 lead but once the visitors pulled a goal back they grew in confidence and could easily have snatched all three points. 16 year old Johnny Ibbotson, in his first season, gave Bridge the lead with two well taken goals and at this stage there looked to be only one winner. Kris Reed, however, reduced the deficit before half time and when he levelled matters mid way through the second half it was Bridge who began to crumble but two fines saves from Hogg combined with some resolute defending saw them hang on for a point.
Man of Match - Johnny Ibbotson
07/10/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 1-1 Black Swan Barwick - League
Defences tended to dominate this encounter and in the end a share of the points was about right. Bridge took the lead through Dan Saxon who assuredly beat Dan Leadbeater from 10 yards following good work and awareness from Ben Clayton and Josh Kidd. The home side worked assiduously to keep their lead but were undone right on the half time whistle. Delroy Rudd, who was having a fine game' made a superb one handed save just before the break but the ball was only partly cleared and when it was crossed back in from the right Martin Rostron was on hand to head home the equaliser. This was how the score stayed with neither side able to gain the upper hand.
Man of Match - Delroy Rudd
28/10/07 - Headingley Rovers 7-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - League
Bridge's task was not helped by the last minute withdrawal of their keeper and their cause was further exacerbated when they found themselves four goals in arrears by half time through goals from Max Rapkin (2), Rich Hunt & Sam Hall. Gary Watts did give Bridge brief respite with a goal early in the second half but Jamie McConnell quickly restored the four goal advantage and further goals from Pete Drury and a second from Hunt completed the rout.
Man of Match - Gary Watts
04/11/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 1-2 FC Boston Res - League
A strong second half from the visitors gave them the points to maintain their position as leaders of Division 2. Bridge had enjoyed the better of the first half with Tom Ekin giving them the lead and a strong defensive performance, superbly marshalled by Craig Tetley, keeping Boston in check. Within five minutes of the restart Adam Tasker put the sides back on level terms and when Dom. Piedon put Boston in front with 14 minutes some Bridge players looked like they were suffering residual effects from extra time the previous day and had little left in the tank.
Man of Match - Craig Tetley
11/11/07 - Tadcaster Magnets 6-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - Intermediate Cup
Bridge did not make a very successful job of defending the Intermediate Cup falling at the first hurdle to relegated Tadcaster Magnets. The result seemed highly unlikely after a goalless first half in which Bridge had more than matched the home side but once Danny Nicholls opened the scoring early in the second half Bridge capitulated. Nicholls added his second, Gavin Evans bagged a brace, Matt Suggitt and Gary Simpson grabbed one each with the indefatigable Alastair Hogg, in the unfamiliar role of centre forward getting Bridge's consolation goal.
Man of Match - Alastair Hogg
18/11/07 - Hampsthwaite United 5-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - League
This result was never in doubt after the first 35 minutes with goals from Adam Reed (2) and brother Kris putting the home side in a comfortable position. Hampsthwaite did not add to their tally until late in the game and both goals could go down to handling errors but hitherto Rudd had produced a string of excellent saves to give the score respectability. Wayne Fisher was an injury time scorer for Bridge.
Man of Match - Craig Tetley
25/11/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 3-2 Studley Royal - Supplementary Cup
Bridge progressed to the next stage of the Supplementary Cup with a hard fought victory over a resolute 10man Studley side. Recently installed Manager Les Hale was looking for his first victory against their lower division opposition but his side fell behind after only 10 minutes to a brilliant individual goal from Tim Edney who left four defenders in his wake before slotting the ball past Delroy Rudd. Gary Watts missed a couple of good chances to get Bridge back on terms and it was left to Alastair Hogg in his unfamiliar striking role to come up with the equaliser just before the break. Bridge started the second half where they had left off the first and within ten minutes the versatile Chris Chapman had grabbed a brace. Studley never gave up the fight and Anthony Mackie reduced the arrears in the 67minute but with the impressive Steve Kirby marshalling the defence Bridge held out.
Man of Match - Steve Kirby
02/12/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 0-9 The Ship - League
On a mud bath of a pitch Bridge came out second best against an impressive Ship outfit who would have been better suited playing at a higher standard. Bridge were fielding probably their strongest side for several weeks and competed well until they conceded a penalty in the 27th minute. The impressive Paul Pollard tucked this away with ease and four minutes later the game was over as a contest when Pollard's second was quickly followed by a strike from Wayne Cotton. By half time Damien Muir had made it four and after containing the visitors for the opening 20 minutes of the second half Wayne Cotton opened up the floodgates again with his second. Pollard struck a second half hat trick to take his tally to five with Tom Leeming getting in on the act late in the game. Despite the score Bridge keeper Delroy Rudd deserves a special as he performed heroics throughout the game saving another Pollard penalty in the process.
Man of Match - Delroy Rudd
23/12/07 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 1-3 Dishforth - League
On a frost covered surface, Boroughbridge Reserves produced one of their best performances for many weeks. The game was in doubt until late in the day, but both sides rolled up their sleeves, and got on with it. Boroughbridge took control immediately, and only fine goalkeeping from James Lee in the Dishforth goal saved them from a 'cricket score'. He saved brilliantly from Gary Watts on three occasions, twice from Johnny Ibbotson, and the talented Matt Uffindall kept him busy all game. Dishforth had three shots and scored on three occasions( Shaun Taylorson 52 & 67)(Mark Trowler 22). The Boroughbridge goal was excellently finished by Matt Uffindall, who worked tirelessly all game. Man of the match went to the excellent Craig Tetley, who also produced the miss of the game. Once again, well done to all the lads on an excellent team display.
Man of Match - Craig Tetley
06/01/08 - Black Swan Barwick 2-0 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - Supplementary Cup
Boroughbridge Reserves produced a battling performance in this quarter final tie at Barwick. On a pitch, which has obviously seen better days, they produced some quality football, and were eventually unlucky to lose. Boroughbridge started the brighter of the two sides, and Barwick goalkeeper Daniel Leadbeater kept the home side in the game with two full length saves in the opening exchanges. Boroughbridge were undone with two goals in the last five minutes of the first-half; the first, a bullet header from Daniel Morley from a corner-kick, and the second, right on the stroke of half-time, by John Robinson after the ball should have been cleared by Bridge defender Daniel Cooke. In the second-half, Bridge 'rolled up their sleeves' and made a fight of it, totally matching a very strong Barwick team. Man of the match for Boroughbridge was stand-in keeper Richie Renton. His handling was to perfection all game, and he showed excellent bravery on numerous occasions. Bridge could not claw their way back into the game despite good prompting from the two Tom's, Smith and Hoare, in the centre of midfield. Gary Watts once again came close on several occasions, and what looked like a clear penalty was ruled outside the box in the favour of Barwick. Well done to all the Boroughbridge lads for their efforts.
Man of Match - Richie Renton
13/01/08 - Tadcaster Magnets 2-0 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - League
This was a game that Boroughbridge could quite easily have won, but was all about having strength in depth. In the first half, Boroughbridge were in command against their promotion chasing rivals and a string of missed chances went begging, Tadcaster hardly threatening the Boroughbridge goal. In the second half Boroughbridge had to use all three substitutes early in the half due to injuries, but the substitutes who took to the field were themselves unfit and struggling. This was despite the fact that the first team game was called off, and there was an abundance of players willing to play - LESSON LEARNT. As a result of this in the second half Tadcaster began to get the upper hand, and two goals from Danny Nicholls, sealed their victory, in the 60th and 75th minutes. Despite this, Boroughbridge still had their chances but lacked that killer instict in front of goal. Impressive performances were from Callum Willey, commanding in defence; Liam Bannard, who had to adapt to three different positions during the game; Tom Smith, absolute class, and man of the match Craig Tetley, the Mr reliable of Boroughbridge. 'What would we do without this player'?
Man of Match - Craig Tetley
20/01/08 - Black Swan Barwick 2-3 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - League
It was touch and go whether this fixture was to be played after a week of heavy rain, but on a quagmire of a pitch the game went ahead. Boroughbridge returning to the ground where two weeks previously, they were dumped out of the Supplementary Trophy, got off to the perfect start. In the first 30 seconds, the returning star-striker Matt Uffindal, latched onto a pass from Phil Wix, finishing cooly in the bottom corner of the net. Boroughbridge playing down the slope in the first-half, totally controlled proceedings, and on 15 minutes it was two nil when once again, Matt Uffindal finished excellently, after having his back to goal, turning the defender and slotting home with ease. Boroughbridge were unlucky not to increase their lead before half- time with several chances going begging. In the second-half Barwick Black Swan came out with a different attitude, and they reduced the arrears on 51 minutes through Simon Maltby, with an impressive 25 yarder. Boroughbridge were under the cosh at this point, but they weathered the storm, always reaking well from their own half; the impressive Phil Wix using his lightening pace to his advantage. On 68 minutes Matt Uffindall completed his hat-trick with the goal of the game, 25 yards out seeing the keeper off his line, cooly lobbing him with measure and ease. On 82 minutes Black Swan scored again through the ever dangerous Daniel Connell to make it a tense finish, but Bridge held on for a very deserved victory.
Man of Match - Matt Uffindall
27/01/08 - Kirk Deighton Rangers 3-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - League
Bridge Res. fared little better as they went down to bottom of the table Kirk Deighton. From the kick off they never looked up for the battle and went behind to a Craig Tetley own goal after 33 minutes. After the break it went from bad to worse and goals in the 60th and 65 minutes from Steve Smith and Liam McEntee respectively put the game out of reach. Steve Warburton did score a late consolation goal for Bridge but this could not hide a poor team performance where it was only the heroics of Delroy Rudd that prevented a much heavier defeat.
Man of Match - Delroy Rudd
03/02/08 - Leeds City Adelers 1-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res - League
After taking a first half lead Bridge showed great resilience before conceding a late equaliser in their penultimate game of the season - yes it is only the 3rd February. There was little to choose between the teams in the opening stages with neither side having the necessary guile to open up two resolute defences. The excitement of the first half was all confined to the latter stages as Bridge took the lead through Paul Scaife in the 39th minute with Adelers responding immediately only for Jodie Lazenby to see his effort bounce to safety after rattling the Bridge post. After the break Adelers upped the tempo but with Craig Tetley majestic in the Bridge defence and another steadfast display from Delroy Rudd Bridge hung on. Tony Cooper, in the Adelers goal, was a virtual spectator as his side camped in the visitors half and their perseverance was rewarded in the 84th minute when the Bridge defence was eventually breached by a bullet type header from Matt Lindsay to an Adam Bunce corner.
Man of Match - Craig Tetley
06/04/08 - Boroughbridge AFC Sun Res 0-8 Tadcaster Magnets - League
After a two month absence Bridge played like strangers as they were comprehensively beaten by their promotion chasing opponents. Richie Renton, who had taken on the temporary role of Manager for this game, was one of the few players to take any credit form the game and his heroics gave the score a modicum of respectability.
Man of Match - Richie Renton
