Terrors

2-2

Bracknell Town

O.G, Ghandour

(0-2)



It was honours even in what was a superb match between two good footballing sides and as the saying goes it was the proverbial game of two halves. The visitors had the better of the opening 45 minutes although the Terrors did have their moments. In the 11th minute a well worked free-kick routine by Bracknell saw Joseph Grant have a close-range effort well saved by Luke Colquhoun and soon after the same player had a shot saved when he was through on goal. On the half-hour Danny Bassett forced a good stop from Mark Scott as he cut in from the right.

Five minutes later Daryl Coleman was just off target with a powerful header from a Peter Wedgeworth corner. Just sixty seconds later Town took the lead when a precision cross from the left was fired home in a flash by Joseph Grant. Three minutes before the break the Robins were awarded a penalty after their lively winger Sebastian Bowerman was brought down just inside the area by Eddie Dines, Bowerman dusted himself down and sent the keeper the wrong way with a well taken spot-kick

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

After the interval Tooting stepped up a gear and needed an early breakthrough to get back into the contest and this they did with a little bit of good fortune when a shot from Eddie Dines deflected off Town defender Joe Gater into the net. The Terrors really had the bit between their teeth and drew level after 70 minutes when Hady Ghandour brought a ball down and fired in a low drive with much aplomb. Soon after Hady was at it again forcing a save from the keeper after good work by Isaiah Jones.

Tooting Man of the Match Hady Ghandour could not have come much closer to giving United the lead when his fierce drive crashed against the post with the keeper beaten in the 78th minute. Tooting piled on the pressure as they went all out for the winner but it would not come. Summing up, the encounter was a credit to the league with both teams likely to be in the shake-up at the end of the season more of the same please. It was pleasing to see our former player and manager Billy Smith at the game.

Uxbridge Town

Bassett, Ilic(2), D Coleman

(1-1)



Another cracking game in very wet and windy conditions which saw the Terrors have their shooting boots on with some classic long-range efforts. It didn’t start well as Uxbridge opened the scoring after just seven minutes when Mitchell Wiseman converted a free-kick, the assistant had his flag up but after a conversation with the referee the goal stood. Two minutes later Eddie Dines had a low shot saved by the visitor keepers legs. In the 19th minute Uxbridge had a good chance to go further

ahead when from a corner Luke Maguire had a free header but put it wide. Tooting drew level in the 39th minute when Danny Bassett scored with a low drive which skidded in on off the wet surface. Two minutes later Stefan Ilic set-up Danny Bassett

whose shot went just the wrong side of the post.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

With the wind in their favour United piled on the pressure after the interval and did not have to wait long to take the lead. In the 51st minute following a good build-up Stefan Ilic cut in from the right and found the back of the net with a fine cross shot.

Isaiah Jones then had a good chance but fired over. On the hour Tooting extended their lead when a corner was cleared to Stefan Ilic who rifled in an unstoppable drive from about 30 yards out which went through a crowd of players and nestled in the

bottom corner of the net. Back came the Middlesex side and they pulled a goal back from a long range free-kick from defender David Thomas whose well struck effort went in off the post.


In stoppage time Dominic Morgan-Griffiths and Abraham Odoh both had goal-bound efforts blocked on the line but it didn’t matter as the clearance found its way to substitute Daryl Coleman who had only been introduced a couple of minutes earlier and he rifled in with aplomb from some distance to complete the scoring. Excellent at the back for the Terrors was Antonio Simeone who did not put ahead or foot wrong. Well done again to the team and the management for another fine performance and for the superb entertainment they are providing.

The Terrors produced another solid performance with everyone playing their part to continue their move up the table. It was the home team who had the first opening in the 5th minute when Dan Moody sliced wide when well placed at the far post. Tootingthen went close when Dominic Morgan-Griffiths side-footed wide after a good build up. Chipstead replied when ex Terror Sam Clayton saw his corner clip the woodwork. Tooting opened the scoring in the 34th minute when Daryl Coleman fired

home a low free-kick after Isaiah Jones had been brought down just outside the area.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

Despite going up the slope after the interval United dominated and it was no surprisewhen Isaiah Jones slotted home a precision cross from the right to make it 2-0 after 63 minutes. In the 72nd minute the home side had a rare chance when Dan Moody had a free header from a corner but missed the target.


In the 90th minute Sam Bell reduced the arrears for Chipstead when he latched onto a through ball and netted with a low drive. With the home side pushing for a last gasp equaliser Saidou Khan who had a fine game picked up a loose ball and ran half the length of the field to score a stunning individual goal. Well done to the Team and Management for another excellent display.

South Park

(1-0)



Before the game there was a minute’s silence in recognition of our former player David Gabriel who recently sadly passed away. The match itself saw honours even after an improving South Park side managed by former Tooting player Jay Lovett grabbed a second half equaliser. The Terrors opened the scoring in the 20th minute when a defensive lapse allowed Danny Bassett to play the ball through to Stefan Ilic who made no mistake with a precision drive. Two minutes later it was nearly 2-0

when Eddie Dines shot from distance was pushed around the post by keeper Michael Eacott. Soon after Danny Bassett got the ball in the net but was offside

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

In the early part of the second half Isaiah Jones was through on goal but Eacott again made a vital save. South Park then threatened the United goal for the first time in the 59th minute when a Great Evans strike which was heading for the roof of the net was somehow blocked by Antonio Simeone. But just sixty seconds later the visitors drew level when defender Liam Harwood struck a low cross shot home after a loose ball fell to him from a corner. The Terrors put on some late pressure and in

the 82nd minute nearly won it when a Peter Wedgeworth drive was blocked on the line credit must go to the visitors who defended as if their lives defended on it. Summing up a disappointing result but the positives are that we have only lost once in the last ten league games and are proving what a hard team we are to beat.

O.G, Ghandour


A workmanlike first half broke down one of the meanest defences in the league and then a solid second half defensive performance protected the hard won advantage. Starts were given to both young guns Hady Ghandour and Stefan Ilic, in place of Danny Bassett and Isaiah Jones.  Jordan Wilson also made a rare start.


On a pitch about as flat as one or two of the lower Himalayas close control was tricky, although Stefan Ilic gave an accomplished display down the left flank. A heavily deflected Dominic Morgan-Griffiths shot provided a 14th minute lead that would otherwise have been ruled out for off-side. Terrors continued to dominate, but was not until deep into injury time that the crucial second goal was poked in by Hady Ghandour when the home side failed to clear a corner.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

The second period was a stark contrast to the first as the home side pushed forward keeping Like Colquhoun occupied, if not stretched. However, the defence was sensibly bolstered after quarter of an hour when Sol Patterson-Bohner replaced Ilic, allowing Daryl Coleman to return to his more familiar midfield role. The ball rarely entered the home half throughout though, with the notable exception being Hady Ghandours breakaway 20 minutes from time which ended with a skybound shot that troubled the distantly parked cars far more than the ill humoured home keeper.


Tooting & Mitcham Utd FC : Colquhoun, Domingo-Carrington, Wedgeworth, Dines, Simeone, Morgan-Griffiths, Khan(Bassett), D Coleman, Ilic(Patterson-Bohner), Wilson, Ghandour(R Coleman)  Not used: Jones, Odoh

Hayes & Yeading

(1-0)



The match between the Division’s in form sides saw Hayes & Yeading come out on top by three goals to one. Tooting had the better of the early exchanges with Dominic Morgan-Griffiths having a goal-bound shot blocked for a corner. In the 20th

minute the visitors had a good chance to take the lead but Elliot Benyon  fired over from six yards out. Two minutes later Hayes & Yeading went in front from the penaltyspot after Lee Barney was pushed in the box. Scott Donnelly sending Luke

Colquhoun the wrong way.

The Middlesex went further ahead after 35 minutes whenToby Little cut in from the left and his cross shot took a deflection on its way into the net. Back came Tooting and we were awarded a penalty seven minutes before the interval when Hady Ghandour was upended in the box, Daryl Coleman firing home the resultant spot-kick. On the stroke of half-time Peter Wedgeworth nearly brought the Terrors level with a free-kick but Charlie Burns saved well low down.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

Four minutes into the second half Hayes & Yeading were awarded their second penalty presumably for a push in the area Scott Donnelly again doing the business. Midway through the half the visitors impressive skipper Scott Bridges nearly made it

four with a speculative long-range effort which just cleared the bar. Tooting also had their moments with the hard working Saidou Khan making some good runs, the closest being a Daryl Coleman drive which went inches wide.
