3-0

Egham Town

Wilson(2) , Morgan-Griffiths

(0-0)



Tooting eased to victory against lowly Egham Town the only mystery was that we didn’t score more goals. In the 9th minute Stefan Ilic worked himself into a good position and forced a good save low down by Yannick Makiese in the Sarnies goal. Four minutes later Peter Wedgeworth was unlucky when his fierce free-kick rattled the Town bar. At the other end the visitors had a rare glimpse of the Terrors goal but David Trivino made the saved from Lamin Ceesay.


On the half-hour Danny Bassett had a close range effort superbly saved by the Egham goalie. Just before the interval Danny Bassett went close again when he clipped the woodwork.


—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

Tooting were quick out of the blocks in the second half and Joordan Wilson knocked in Peter Wedgeworth’s precision cross from point blank range after 50 minutes. Eleven minutes later it was 2-0 when the impressive Dominic Morgan-Griffiths cut in from the right and fired in a fine goal from an acute angle.


In the 77th minute substitute Leon Lalor-Dell who had only been on the field for about sixty seconds had a gilt-edged chance but blasted over. Jordan Wilson who had a fine game completed the scoring with a well-taken goal three minutes from time. Outstanding at the back for the Terrors was Antonio Simeone who did not put a head or foot wrong.

1-1

Northwood

Khan

(1-0)



It was honours even but a very good Northwood side will feel they could have won the game after creating the better chances. In the opening half Northwood’s Tremayne Charles had a shot well saved low down by Morgan Campbell, then Antonio Simeone cleared a header off the line and Dan Pett went close. Saidou Khan had a shot saved by Luke Sheldrick as the Terrors threatened. In the 43rd minute Tooting opened the scoring, with two of our best players on the day involved Antonio Simeone broke up a Northwood attack and played an inch perfect ball to Saidou Khan who went onto score with a well taken effort low to the keepers right.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

Early in the second half the visitors outstanding player Sam Jenkins made it 1-1 heading home from a free-kick. Then their captain Carl Pearce had a shot cleared off the line by Peter Wedgeworth. On the hour mark Danny Bassett had an opening but the keeper was equal to the task. In the 70th minute Sam Jenkins went on a mazy run leaving several Tooting players in his wake and saw his cross shot just go past the far post.


Ten minutes later Kweku Lucan was in the clear for the Woods but Morgan Campbell made a good block soon after their substitute Kyran Worrell had a gilt-edged chance to win it but found an United defender on the line. With the visitors not prepared to shut up shop and with Tooting also putting on some late pressure there was an exciting end to the game but no further goals. We have still to beat Northwood in a home league game, but credit to them for not just settling for a point and going out for a winner they like ourselves playing the game in the right spirit.

Marlow

1-1

Terrors

Jones

(1-1)



It was another draw for the Toots following an enjoyable afternoon at one of the few decent venues in this league.  Marlow proved their worth as head of the race for second place, whilst Tooting showed the determination that leaves them unbeaten in eight games.


Terrors were without their midfield engine room, with both Saidio Khan and Daryl Coleman suspended. Antonio Simeone was also on holidays leaving a very youthful bench line up that included Junior Timite following the collapse of his transfer to Poland.

It was a mixed day for Isaiah Jones, who delivered a candidate for goal of the season but also a red card along with Marlows Chris Ovenden, all before half time.  Jones has been, to say the least, seemed somewhat distracted in recent weeks but today he sparkled from the start and after half an hour  embarked on one of his trademark runs from deep, weaving through the home side before rounding the keeper and completing a fine individual goal.


There was nothing to chose between the teams, but in the final minute of the half everything changed. The home side equalised from a set piece that the Terrors again failed to defend (a worrying trend) An injury to Jordan Wilson ended his involvement. before the mass brawl that lead to the two dismissals (I missed the incident but it may have been triggered by a Jones tackle).  


The second half followed the hardworking pattern of the first with both sides getting the ball into the final third, but not past two strong back lines and a pair of confident, but not overly stretched keepers.


Line-up : Campbell, Domingo-Carrington, Wedgeworth, Beeden, Patterson-Bohner, Dines, Wilson(Ilic), Morgan-Griffiths, Bassett(Timite), Jones, Ghandour (Summers).  Not used: Forlain, Zamara

2-1

Waltham Abbey

Ghandouor(2)

(2-0)



An entertaining game on a warm afternoon at the Campus Society Stadium, a deserved victory but the visitors set up a tense finish with a late goal. Waltham Abbey enjoyed some early pressure and Morgan Campbell had to be alert to keep out an effort from their skipper Billy Holland. Tooting then took control and Eddie Dines curled a shot just over. In the 10th minute United took the lead when a Peter Wedgeworth cross was superbly put away by Hady Ghandour. Five minutes later theTerrors doubled their advantage when man of the match Hady Ghandour glanced home a Stefan Ilic corner.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

After the break Tooting applied more pressure and Peter Wedgeworth had a free-kick well saved by Waltham keeper Frederick Burbridge in the 53rd minute. Leon Lalor-Dell who looked very lively after coming on as a substitute at the start of the second half was very unlucky when his blockbuster crashed against the post.


The Essex side had a rare chance after 72 minutes when a cross from the left was headed over by Ellis Brown from close range although the ball was travelling at some speed. Waltham Abbey did however pull a goal back nine minutes from through Christian Assombalonga after a scramble in the box. Summing up a solid performance despite us having several players missing, which only underlines the strength of our squad and what an excellent job the Management Team are doing. Mention must be made of the tremendous home support and backing given to the lads from our marvellous supporters behind the goal.

Crystal Palace under 23s

Morgan-Griffiths, Lalor-Dell




Two second half goals gave Tooting victory in this friendly encounter. The opening goal came four minutes into the second half when Dominic Morgan-Griffiths broke into the Palace box, his initial shot was beaten out by the keeper but he was on hold

to knock the rebound home. After 81 minutes the Eagles were awarded a penalty after Antonio Simeone was adjudged to have brought down one of the visitor’s front men. Substitute keeper Justice Owusu was equal to the task and saved the spot-kick

low down to his left and also saved the follow up with his feet.


The Terrors sealed their victory in the 90th minute when Sam Folarin played a long ball down the middle the Palace keeper and a defender got in a tangle which left Leon Lalor-Dell with the simple task of knocking the ball into the empty net.

1-1

Westfield

Bassett

(0-0)



It was honours even on a very blustery afternoon at the Campus Society Stadium. Westfield under the guidance of former Tooting player Tony Reid also had four ex Terrors in their squad one of which would be sent off just before the interval. The visitors had an early opportunity when Aaron Watson was through on goal but he shot wide when well placed.


Tooting replied with a Danny Bassett cross-shot which Gary Ross pushed around the post for a corner and then a fierce effort from Peter Wedgeworth that Ross did well to beat out. In the 43rd minute former United player Kadeem Ajeon who had already received a yellow card then received a straight red card for what appeared a late tackle. For a few minutes tempers flared before calm was restored by the referee.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

After the break chances were at a premium although the Terrors did create a good one midway through the half when a Peter Wedgeworth cross found Leon Lalor-Dell at the far post but he could not find the target. Westfield broke the deadlock after 78 minutes when they were awarded a penalty for handball Aaron Watson coolly converting the spot kick.


Just when it looked like Tooting wouldn’t find the net they did after  90th minutes when Danny Bassett glanced home a precision Dominic Morgan-Griffiths cross and that was how it finished. In difficult conditions Lexus Beeden who had a fine game was rightly given the man of the match award. In the visitors ranks central defender Gregory Haydon hardly put a foot wrong.

Tooting & Mitcham Utd FC : Morgan Campbell, Ajani Domingo-Carrington, Peter Wedgeworth, Antonio Simeone, Lexus Beeden, Dominic Morgan-Griffiths, Saidou Khan(Junior Timite), Danny Bassett, Daryl Coleman, Leon Lalor-Dell(Samuel Folarin) Hady Ghandour(David Carty).
