Terrors  1-2  Staines Town

Tooting slipped to their second home league defeat on the trot against a resurgent Staines Town side. The Terrors started the game well and had a chance to open the scoring in the second minute when a header back to the Swans keeper was

intercepted by Danny Bassett but he failed to hit the target. That was soon forgotten however when David Castanho fired us ahead after four minutes after good work by Danny Bassett. United continued to dominate with the visitor’s defence making several unforced errors but we could not take advantage.

Staines slowly came into the game and had a chance to equalise on the half hour but Klajdi Cani shot wide when well placed. Five minutes later they made us pay when we failed to clear a free-kick and Ashley Lodge was on hand to score with a well-taken finish. Four minutes before the break David Castanho’s fierce drive which looked destined for the

back of the net was brilliantly tipped over by Jacob Adams.

Half time :   Tooting & Mitcham United FC   1 – 1   Staines Town FC

In the second half James Shaw was called into action to make a good stop from Dara Dada-Anite. Staines got what proved to be the winner in the 61st minute when Arif Hattabi played a superb ball into the box which was well controlled by Ashley Lodge who tucked it away with aplomb giving James Shaw no chance. For the rest of the game we were camped in the Town half but couldn’t make our pressure tell. Shamal Edwards coming closest with a header in stoppage time.

Tooting & Mitcham Utd FC : James Shaw, Dean Hamlin, Nathan Daly, Akeem Belford, Dominic Morgan-Griffiths, David Castanho(Hamed Timite), Danny Bassett(Hady Ghandour), Connor French, Shamal Edwards, Antonio Simeone(Kadeem Ajeon), Razzaq Coleman. Unused subs Sol Patterson-Bohner, George Ademiluyi.

FA Trophy 3rd Qualifying Round

Carshalton Athletic  2-1  Terrors

The Terrors put in a spirited performance against higher league opposition and can count themselves really unlucky not force a replay. We got the ideal start when a Robins defensive mistake gifted the ball to Hady Ghandour and he took full advantage with a superb finish giving the keeper no chance. In the 16th minute Hady was in again but this time his cross shot went across the face of the goal and wide. Carshalton rarely threatened in the opening half their best effort coming from a Christie Pattisson free-kick which was well gathered by James Shaw.

Half time :   Carshalton Athletic   0 – 1   Tooting & Mitcham United

After the break the home side with the wind at their backs put on a lot of pressure and were back on level terms in the 50th

 minute with a well struck shot from Tommy Bradford which went through a crowd of players into the net. The Robins got their

winner after 56 minutes when Jeremiah Amoo curled in a shot from just outside the area. This didn’t deter the Terrors who then took the game to Carshalton and we proceeded to put their defence under huge pressure and only great saves from Kieton Perntreou kept out efforts from Zaq Coleman and Hady Ghandour twice to stop us getting a deserved equaliser. Everyone put in a shift for Tooting and the team can be proud of their efforts despite no reward.

Tooting & Mitcham Utd FC : James Shaw, Dean Hamlin, Sol Patterson-Bohner, Nathan Daly, Daryl Coleman(Kyrique Garvey Williams), Dominic Morgan-Griffiths, David Castanho(George Ademiluyi), Danny Bassett, Connor French(Hamed Timite),

Razzaq Coleman, Hady Ghandour. Unused Subs : Kadeem Ajeon, Morgan Campbell, Nebay Haile, Antonio Simeone.
