Boroughbridge AFC Sunday Match Reports 10/11
August to December
27/08/10 - The Ship 6-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
On a Friday evening a makeshift Claro League side played The Ship and were on the end of a similar five goal deficit to that of the first team the following day. Tom Leeming was the driving force behind the victory with a well taken brace and further goals from Shaun Taylor, Paul Abbott and Phil Metcalfe put them firmly in the driving seat. Their goal tally reached six with the help of an own goal from Chris Chapman and Paul Stephenson scored late consolation effort for Bridge.
12/09/10 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 4-3 Harrogate CSC - League
Bridge continued to move in the right direction with victory over their previously unbeaten visitors. They got the fillip of an early goal with a deflected Paul Scaife effort that deceived Dan Skelton but there was nothing fluky about the second as Ollie Bone decisively struck home Andy O’Hare ‘s through ball. CSC got back into the game on 15 minute when a deflected Graham Whitehead cross looped through the hands of Lee Dearden to allow Carl Baranovsky to head home and two minutes later they cut through the Bridge defence for Biagio D’Amore to fire in the equaliser. Five minutes before the break Scaife had his penalty kick well saved by Skelton after Saul Pullan brought down Dave Burniston but this was quickly forgotten when Bone got his second a minute into the second half. Scaife then had his second piece of good fortune when he miscued a Burniston cross only to see the ball balloon over Skelton into the net. Bridge could not afford to relax as CSC looked to preserve their unbeaten record but a resolute defence allowed the visitors very little until the last minute when Graham Whitehead beat replacement keeper Alastair Hogg.
Man of Match - Ollie Bone
19/09/10 - Leeds City Headingley 1-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
Profligacy and an exceptional performance from home keeper Stephen Degiovanni denied Bridge a deserved victory from their Sunday morning trip to Adel Sports Club. Ollie Bone, Dan Clayton, Mark Burniston and Andy O’Hare had all gone close as Bridge dominated only for the home side to miss a great opportunity to take the lead on 37 minutes when Alastair Hogg skewed his clearance straight to James Rudd but he failed to find an empty net from 20 yards out. Three minutes later Burniston produced another fine save from Degiovanni before the keeper was eventually beaten by an acute angled volley from Joe Turner just before the break. Twenty minutes into the second half Manager Richard Donohoe stopped taking notes as his side continued to miss a myriad of chances but as events turned out he maybe should have continued as his short period on the field resulted in an equaliser when a Pete Drury drive deflected off him into the net.
Man of Match - Chris Chapman
26/09/10 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 4-0 Vale of York - League Cup
Vale made Bridge battle all the way in the Claro League Cup tie and it was three goals in the last twelve minutes that gave the final score a flattering appearance. The home side were hampered by injuries and some of their key players under performing and it was not until the 35 minute that they broke the deadlock when Andy O’Hare smashed the ball through a crowd of players after Vale failed to clear a Sean Corbett corner. After the interval Richie Mellors and Sam Wilson brought fine saves out of Lee Dearden and similarly at the other end Tom Bland denied Paul Scaife and O’Hare. The balance of the tie swung Bridge’s way in the 78 minute when a Mark Burniston cross was chested down by Paul Stephenson for Dave Burniston to drive into the bottom corner. Three minutes from time Ollie Bone chipped Bland for the third and Scaife completed the scoring from the spot after O’Hare’s mazy run was brought to an end in the penalty area. There was still time for Vale to get their chance when sub Chris Chandler was fouled in the area but Dearden signed off for his enforced absence by pushing away Luke Morrell’s spot kick.
Man of Match - Ollie Bone & Dave Burneston
10/10/10 - FC Boston 11-0 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
As the score suggests this was a story of two goalkeepers with Boston’s Craig Leach having a quiet morning reading his Sunday newspaper whilst at the other end Alastair Hogg had to be constantly massaged with ‘Voltarol’ to alleviate the increasing back ache. Scorers for the home side in this rather one-sided affair were Andrew Kitchen (3), a brace from Marcus Stapleton & Paul Smith with single contributions from Ian Prendegast, Johnny Walton, James Morrall & Danny Baeza.
Man of Match - Stephen Coles
17/10/10 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 0-2 The Ship - FA Challenge Cup
Bridge put in a much improved performance from the previous week only to exit the Harrogate FA Sunday Cup to a strong ‘Ship’ side. The opening exchanges were fierce in this local derby but between the thunder there were some good phases of play from both sides. Lee Dearden did well to deny Tom Leeming after he was set up by Paul Abbott and Chris Chapman twice came close from Bridge corners just failing to get enough contact to divert Steve Paffett’s flicks goalwards. The opening goal came in the 31st minute and had a deal of good fortune about it as a fee kick took a wicked deflection off Dave Burniston’s shoulder to loop over a stranded Dearden. The second half saw Bridge create two great chances to square matters, the best to Paul Eagling, who chipped wide with only keeper Mark Rimmer to beat. A harsh tackle on keeper Lee Dearden forced the Bridge player to leave the field and without his authority and the home side pushing for an equaliser James Mason ended Bridge’s hopes with a dipping strike past Chapman eight minutes from time.
Man of Match - Dave Burneston
24/10/10 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 1-3 Atlanta - Knockout Cup
For an hour Bridge were the better side but after Ollie Bone had cancelled out an earlier Sylvester Rowe goal they chose to forget their football and it cost them the game as Ben Lambert and Dan Riley put Atlanta through to the next round with two goals in the last ten minutes.
Man of Match - Stephen Coles
31/10/10 - Sherwood 3-3 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
Sherwood enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges in terms of possession but it was Bridge who created the chances with their wide players a constant threat and it from this source they got their opener in the 5th minute. Mark Burniston broke free down the left and from his centre Josh Blanchard, belied his inexperience in Senior football, by holding up the ball to allow the onrushing Paul Scaife to beat Paul Robson with a delicate chip. Parity was soon restored when Steven Paffett gave away a penalty following a goalmouth scramble and Dan Thirkell gave Lee Dearden no chance from the penalty spot. Bridge continued to create the better of the chances but were undone on the hour mark with a brilliant volleyed second from Thirkell that gave Dearden no chance and ten minutes later Rob Turnbull looked to have sealed the outcome with a good finish. Bridge reverted to a 4-3-3- system after this and it was the pace of Ollie Bone and Mark Burniston that inspired the comeback. Burniston carried the ball from deep in his own half and after a missed swing from Bone the ball fell back into the path of Burniston who struck his shot into the bottom corner This was ten minutes from time and six minutes later he was chopped down in the box following another mazy run and from the resultant penalty Steven Paffett hit home a deserved equaliser.
Man of Match - Mark Burneston
07/11/10 - Boroughbridge AFC Sunday 4-2 Leeds City Headingley - League
Bridge missed a raft of chances in the away fixture and it looked like déjà vu as they started brightly only for Ollie Bone and Paul Scaife to each miss good opportunities but in propitious conditions their persistence paid off when Scaife stood up a cross at the back post for Mark Burniston to easily head home in the 31st minute. Bridge’s domination of the game was brought to an end by a Steve Gowland penalty for an adjudged hand ball against David Burniston and this is how it remained to the break. Bridge ‘forgot’ to come out for the start of the second half and had not entered their opponents half when Chris Pugh transmogrified City’s pressure with a curling left foot strike that even a fully stretched Alastair Hogg could not keep out. This was a wake up call for the home side but it was the introduction of Paul Eagling and Jo Turner which was to prove pivotal with Turner bringing the scores level with his first touch from a Scaife free kick on 66 minutes. Two minutes later Eagling slotted the ball past City keeper Ian Pears from an incisive Mark Burniston through ball to put his side back in front. Bridge got away with some indifferent passages of play in the latter stages before Turner found himself in the right place to tap home a Dave Burniston volley two minutes from time. Overall this was a decent performance from Bridge with pleasing displays from the two Burnestons, Coles and Paffett and a meritorious MOM showing from player/manager Richard Donohoe.
Man of Match - Richard Donohoe
14/11/10 - Tadcaster Magnets 1-2 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League Cup
Bridge got off to a great start but then struggled to find any sort of rhythm in the League Cup tie and were pushed all the way by a young, vibrant Magnets side. The game was only four minutes old when Jordan Tinkler saved from Paul Eagling but the keeper’s clearance went straight to Mark Burniston and his forty plus yard chip left Tinkler stranded. This opened the game up and even though it was Bridge who created the better opportunities it was the home side who were playing the better football and their perseverance paid off on 36minutes from the penalty spot. Adam Fields got himself on a one to one with Bridge defender Chris Chapman and his clumsy challenge resulted in the spot kick which was converted by Matt Suggitt who sent Alastair Hogg the wrong way. The second half was a tight affair with Hogg making a couple of saves to deny Suggitt and Paul Travis and for Bridge Paul Scaife twice rattled the woodwork with Tinkler well beaten. As extra time loomed Bridge struck a minute from time when an Eagling corner was flicked on by Steven Paffett and Ben Clayton ghosted in with a typical header to give Tinkler no chance. It was a bitter blow for the home side who had fought with a collective will and dynamism against an undoubtedly better side but lacked the Magnets tenacity. This critique could not however be directed at Ben Clayton who was named MOM following a typical steadfast performance.
Man of Match - Ben Clayton
21/11/10 - Ripon City 1-1 Boroughbridge AFC Sunday - League
The first half of this local derby was an entertaining affair as both sides enjoyed periods of pressure with the home side getting their breakthrough on two minutes when Chris Wood failed to clear and Danny Edmunds just beat Steve Paffett to the loose ball to poke past Alastair Hogg. Bridge had their chances, the best of which fell to Paul Scaife, who saw his close range effort cleared off the line by Simon English with keeper Andy Kirkbright stranded. After the break Bridge got their deserved equaliser within four minutes through Paul Scaife who smashed the ball home from five yards after Steven Paffett headed back a Dan Clayton free kick. Bridge probably had the better of the game after with Chris Chapman and Ben Clayton both missing good heading opportunities but in the end they had to be satisfied with a point against a resolute home outfit.
Man of Match - Chris Wood & Dave Burneston
