FLATS REPORT THE DIO FLETCHER STADIUM NEWTHORPE NOVEMBER 4TH



The game was very even in the 1st half despite the contrast of styles-slow and methodical from Dave against the more quick and robust from Marco and chances were few and far between.The 2nd half was more open and the game was decided when Dave conceded a free kick just inside his own half and Marco capitalised on a couple of poor block flicks with a delightful shot into the far corner of the net. Dave almost replied straight from the kick-off when a quick shot was saved by Marco’s rod despite him not having hold of it. Dave had a couple of more chances to equalise but Marco held on to secure his first victory in the Flats League.

Marco 1 v 0 Dave


Marco continued his 100% record with a hard fought victory over Colin with a goal 7 minutes from time when despite being in a “POT” (Paterson Offside Trap for those unaffiliated to this) managed to wriggle out of it and squeezed in a delightful goal off the far post to take the lead. Colin came out of his defensive shell and was unlucky not to grab a draw when he broke quickly through Marco’s defence only to be denied a deserved equaliser when the ball came back off the post. 

Colin 0 v 1 Marco


A typical Colin against Dave clash with Dave having the majority of the possession and Colin making some world class saves to deny Dave the victory but it was honours even after a tough 40 minutes.

Colin 0 v 0 Dave


Rob’s first game was in the whole an even contest and despite Marco taking the lead on 8 minutes after some good intricate play on Rob’s shooting line it was no more than Rob deserved when he equalised on 14 minutes from a corner. Both players had opportunities to win the game in the second half but in the end a draw was a fair result.

Rob 1 v 1 Marco 


Rob claimed his first victory with two well taken goals one in each half the first after 17 minutes with a low strike into the corner of the goal. Colin pushed men forward in the 2nd half in search of an equaliser but was caught on the break when Rob scored his second on 38 minutes leaving Colin still seeking his first victory on his return to the Flats competition after a two year absence.

Colin 0 v 2 Rob



FLATS REPORT THE LENINIUM STADIUM CHESTERFIELD NOVEMBER 18TH


Marco raced into the lead with a powerful long shot that went like an arrow into the corner. Mike came back and levelled with a shot that lifted over the 'keeper. Marco opened up Mike's defence to send the 'keeper the wrong way and restore the lead. Mike expressed his frustrations at the turn of events, saying that "I hate this game sometimes!" -and then equalised within a minute to complete the scoring in an outstanding game of flats TS.

 

Marco 2 v 2 Mike

 

 

Dave produced his best performance of the season to grab a two-goal lead at half-time, both from throw-ins. Marco replaced his 'keeper for the second half and he soon found useful employment, though two good chances to get back into the match were spurned after the break.

 

Dave 3 v 0 Marco

 

 

Dave enjoyed two early chances but Mike was equal to the challenge. Mike produced some good examples of quick, skilful play but wasn't quite able to take advantage. Both players were probing for the vital opening goal but both defences were able to cope well. Then, with two minutes to go, Dave forced a run of throw-ins and corners and from the last of these carved out the chance for the winner that he tucked inside the far post.

 

Dave 1 v 0 Mike

FLATS REPORT PATERSON FLATS BIRMINGHAM JANUARY 6TH

You look at these fixtures and you could expect three 0-0. Not today!

Dave put pressure on Jeff’s defence. It held out till 12 minutes gone when yes from the left wing, Dave scored. Jeff, from kick off gave his defence some rest with good possession. Jeff’s keeper was called on to make saves. The second half was more of the same. 7 minutes gone and Dave got a second, then with 5 minutes to go Dave secured his third to win.

Dave 3 v 0 Jeff


Rob against Dave and for at least 5 minutes Dave had 3 players offside with a super p.o.t.. Second half Dave had two shots on goal; with one effort a call of four flicks was called as the shot was wayward and wide. 1 point each.

Rob 0 v 0 Dave


The final match resulted in a lot of effort, but was settled by a very fine long pass to what looked like Jeff’s lonely forward. As it arrived a defending figure had lain down stop the ball. As we all know it was still Jeff’s ball. Jeff knocked the ball into the shooting area and blindly sent the same figure after ball to propel the ball into the near post to claim all three points.

Rob 0 v 1 Jeff

Overall Champion

As an experiment for the 2018-19 season, we are looking at a combined championship table. This will take into account the Main league, the Flats league and the 00 league. All players who appear in any of those leagues will appear in the consolidated Overall Champion table. 


All points won, goals scored etc will be counted in the overall table so every single match and goal will have a bearing on the final outcome. This, we hope, ensures that all three events remain competitive.


As some leagues have fewer players, these leagues will gain a weighting according to the number of players involved, to compensate for the fewer games in that particular league. For this season there are 6 players in the Flats league so it starts from scratch (no adjustments). There are 5 players in the Main league so each statistic is divided by 5 then multiplied by 6 to give a weighted score. In the 00 league the numbers are divided by 4 then multiplied by 6.


I will try to keep this table up to date and for this season it is just for interest. Each player will value each event in a different way and the overall table will be viewed as important to some, less so to others. We will examine its value at the AGM.
