FA Trophy

Postby mike1 » Mon Nov 13, 2017 3:14 pm

Away to Grantham of the NPL Premier Division - a tricky test? Grantham currently third in table and the division's top scorers with 43 goals from 20 games. Elsewhere some cracking ties including Brackley v Salford and Darlington v Harrogate.

One of those horrible grounds with a running track around it. A trick they use is to have ball boys, who then disappear when Grantham are ahead, leaving the players to retrieve the ball themselves. Last time we played there it was blowing a gale and the ball spent most of the game off the pitch than on it. Tricky tie.

Well that sounded exciting! That was a very tough tie, the top of the NPL is very competitive and given Grantham's recent record they must have fancied their chances ( especially at half time!)Looking forward to lots of comment and analysis from the fans who attended the game :D o

I wasn't there either but echo Tempie's comment, very well done, this was a difficult tie and have to admit I thought we were done at half time but every credit to a team that doesn't know it's beaten. Looking forward to hearing from someone who went. Safe journey home guys. . COYM

I went yesterday and suggest that the summary on the Chorley website is a reasonable representation of the game.

I would add a few more points:

H1
- we should have been out of sight before they scored with at least three clear chances to score but we failed to deliver the final bit of quality / killer instinct.
- the first GT goal was poor defending with Chally trying to run a ball over the goal line and getting mugged near the corner flag with the striker crossing for his mate to head in - that said Chally had a good match save for this one mistake
- brilliant equaliser from Walker who curled into top corner from the edge of the box - if on MOTD would be repeated over and over - GT fans around me were applauding
- the pattern of the rest of the half was CFC attacking and GT hitting with pace on the counter which is where goals 2 and 3 both came from - both good finishes although the second should have been saved as Urwin seemed to allow the ball to bounce over his hands
- HT 3-1 probably flattered the home side but had our finishing been better we would have been ahead

H2
- for anyone who has not been GT's ground is a local athletic stadium with one big seated stand and a terraced stand opposite and the wind whistles across from the open ends, the set up necessitates ball boys and a multi ball system which was very effective in H1 - funnily enough half the ball boys were still eating their HT snacks and someone must have locked the MBs up in H2 - odd that with them being 3-1 up

- first ten minutes followed a similar pattern with GT's 9&10 raiding on fast breaks
- we seemed to get a grip of the ball around the hour mark and GT began to retreat a little - no surprise to get a second from Wilson who had been lively all game and quickly followed by a good headed third following good battling by the recently introduced Carver - game on
- the next 20 mins was full of energy without any real end product and with 5 mins left Urwin made up for goal 2 with a terrific save from the marauding no 9
- the save seemed to galvanise CFC and they pushed forward and were rewarded on 89 mins with Josh OK smashing in a half volley from the edge of the box
- GT heads dropped and CFC played out the 3 mins (NOT 6 when you signal 2 mr dodgy homer referee from STOCKPORT - hang your head in shame) easily

Summary
- very good game GT look like a decent side and no surprise they are near the top of the Glue League
- they will do well if they can hold onto their 9 & 10 who looked a cut above the players you normally see at this level both have terrific pace and can finish
- friendly locals, decent beer BUT VERY VERY COLD

Thanks for the summary, always good to get an eye witness opinion. Great result in the end. I know lots of clubs/fans are not interested in the Trophy but I would love a great run, all the way if possible. COYM.

Yes and we must not forget the prize money. Although not FA cup amounts, still very important to the club.

I think the ref might have indicated a minimum of 2 mins not a maximum. If less than 2 mins had been played you may have had cause for complaint.

The ref signalled 4 minimum but it took Stockport bench that long to get the board out there was nearly 2 minutes gone so instead of signalling 4 for some reason that made sense to them they only signalled 2

I seem to remember we last played Marine in the Trophy at their place in the 1970s in the Alan Spence managerial era and won, perhaps unexpectedly, prior to going on the famous Trophy run and beating Wimbledon. A great opportunity to progress to the last 32.

Didn't we beat them at home not too long ago, Matt Jansen scored if I remember rightly. 3-1 I think the score.

Mark Ross goal came in 2012 NYD If I recall in a 4-2 victory.
Think the 1-0 Boxing Day one was when we won the Premier Division Hine or Stephenson scoring in first-half injury time.

As mentioned above we've had a couple of FA Trophy games against Marine recently- 2010 the 3-1 victory with Jansen scoring a lovely goal and Stepien getting 2.
Also 2013 we went to them in the Trophy losing 1-0.
