New Woking FC & Westfield Youth U18 team to play in Southern Youth Floodlit League
Manager: Vic Locke
Westfield’s current Youth policy started in 1999 when Woking Boys u13’s joined the club to form a new Westfield Under 14 team. Under Manager Vic Locke they have reached 5 County Cup finals in last seven years and as Westfield went on an unbeaten run on all fronts of nearly three years which included winning the treble (Surrey County Cup, West Surrey Youth League Cup and West Surrey Youth Premier title) two years on the trot. Twelve of the players were selected for the Woking Schools District squad that beat Croydon Schools in the District Cup Final, five for the Surrey County FA Side and one to the England Schoolboys side.
Last season they again reached the Surrey County Cup final narrowly losing on pens after extra time and came runners up in the West Surrey Youth Under 16 Prem League. Eight players represented the Surrey County FA sides and a large majority of the side played 2 years above themselves in the Midweek floodlit Under 18 Southern Youth League side, having a great season finishing runners up to in a league of youth teams from much bigger clubs. Several of the players were also lucky enough to be given opportunities to play in the clubs senior sides and acquitted themselves well. This year 12 players from the Youth team have represented the club at Senior level with a good proportion doing so on a regular basis. The Southern Youth League team who with the exception of two players all have at least another year are currently third in the league and a new u15 side has been set up to continue the flow of players. The new side has a lot to live up to but looks very promising and is acquitting its self very nicely, currently unbeaten and sitting top of its league.

Another terrific game between these two sides saw 5 goals, a sending off, dissallowed 'Field goals and some heart stopping moments. The game started very even both sides fighting hard to get the upper hand, then came a moment that had a big impact on the game, Sam Black went on a trade mark surging run, he expertly rounded James Marriott in the Staines goal and was about to roll the ball into an empty net only to be pulled down by the keeper. Marriott saw red and Dan Locke stepped up to put 'Field in front. Staines reacted by replaced Jon Siah with sub keeper Chris O'Connor and continued to play some good stuff even though down to ten men. The next goal came from Jamie Folley his cross shot finding the top corner to give 'Field a 2-0 lead going into half time. Staines showed what a quality side they are as they reduced the lead early in the second half with a quality cross and fine header. 'Field who carried a goal threat all night then extended thier lead again as Black deservedly got on the score sheet, he then again broke clear and looked to have sealed the win only for the goal to be first awarded then ruled out for no aparent reason. A late Staines goal, scored after a terrific save from James Roach fell straight to the feet of a forward set up an exciting last 5 mins but back three Tyler Coate, Stuart Pain and Joe Taylor had all been in fine form all evening and 'Field held out to claim the points.

A last minute winner from Dan Locke gave 'Field a deserved three points in a tremendous game against an inform Ashford side on Wednesday night. A 'Field side missing several regulars started the game really well, creating several good chances, Ashford too played well some good stuff with sharp passing and probing runs from midfield. Jamie Folley opened the scoring for 'Field with a cool finish after good work down the left from Flavio Cappiello. 'Field continued to have slightly the upper hand, but just prior to half time they paid the price for failing to take their chances as they conceded a late equaliser, a quality finish on the run giving Billy Inwood no chance. The sides went in at half time with the score at 1-1.
The second half saw more good football from both sides, before the last 15 mins saw the game really come alive, first John Waterman burst through from his wing back slot and fired a unstoppable shot to restore 'Field's lead, only for a fantastic strike from 20 yards to bring a spirited Ashford side level again. Just as the clock was running down Locke showed his pace to latch onto a through ball and stretched every sinew to poke it past the oncoming keeper for the winning goal.

Westfield, though never playing as well as they did the previous week against Staines, did enough on the night to beat a Casuals side who though they had some good possesion never really caused them too many problems. The opening goal came in the first half from Andy King after a surging run down the left and cross from Dan Locke found him free in the box to give the home side a deserved lead. 'Field went on to create several chances in the second half but failed to take them, it could have proved costly as ex-player Nick Beaumont latched onto a long through ball to finish well for the equaliser. This and the introdution of sub John Waterman seemed to spark 'Field back into action and soon after a clear penalty appeal was turned away, but the ball ran to King capped a good night for King's (Ledly for England) and scored what proved to be the winner

A tremendous performance from Westfield's Youth team saw them overcome a very strong Staines Academy side and progress into the 1/4 finals of the Southern Youth League Cup on Thursday night. Right from the start 'Field looked up for it and it was no surprise when a quality ball into the box from Stuart Pain was met with a firm header from Dan Locke to open the scoring. Both sides looked a real threat going forward and both created good chances, Jamie Marriott in the Staines goal pulled off a couple of fine saves to deny firstly Flavio Cappiello and then keep out a great long range drive by Sam Black, Billy Inwood in the 'Field goal also looked at his commanding best. The sides went in at half time with the score finely balanced at 1-0 and both sides came out again intent on playing attacking football, a lightning quick break saw Staines draw level, but almost immediately a fine ball forwards found Locke who calmly restored 'Field's lead and get what was to prove the winner. The game continued to be played at a very high tempo with some quality football being played by both sides, Staines thought they had equalised only for it to be ruled out for offside and a great last ditch challenge from ex-Westfield player Keith Bradbury denied Black a certain goal after his pace had taken him clear. 'Field's reward for their fine win is an away draw at either Dulwich Hamlet or Croydon Athletic in the 1/4 final.

A hatrick from Greg Kirkpatrick, two from Flavio Cappiello and one from Jamie Folley saw 'field to three points on wednesday night. 'Field started well and the passing was fluent from the start, it was no supprise when a good strike fron Kirkpatrick opened the scoring. Sandhurst who also played well in the first half forced an equaliser on about 30 mins before Cappiello restored the home sides lead on the stroke of half time. The second half was all one way traffic with 'field playing some really good stuff, Sam Black in particular was in excellent form. Further goals from Kirkpatrick,Cappiello and Folley secured a well deserved win

A terrific second half performance including a fine hatrick from Jamie Folley saw Field win a close game against a competitive Gs side. The first half was fairly even, Stuart Pain just back from injury doing a good job marking Gs danger man Joe Chandiram, who looked a very good player. The second half saw a real step up in pace by Field. It paid dividends early on, first Sam Black, who had a really good game, released Folley with a quality ball, the latter showed great composure in rounding the keeper and firing home from a very tight angle. Number two followed quickly a quality free kick from Pain was met by a great header from Luke Wellstead giving the keeper no chance. Folley who was revelling in his first game up front for the u18s went on to cap his night by scoring twice more, both with good finishes, either side of a great long range strike from James Mepham that had given Gs some brief hope of a recovery.
Squad: Billy Inwood, Andy King, Tyler Coate, Jerome Smart, Stuart Pain, Dave Shutt, Mike Tasker, Luke Wellstead, Max Galbraith, Jamie Folley, Sam Black. Subs: Duke Munroe, Liam Stone.
A very competitive and close game ended in stalemate on Tuesday night, but both sides contributed to an entertaining game with a draw probably the fair result. Walton, a very good side maintain their unbeaten record in the league but lost their 100% home record this season, they had slightly the better of the first half exchanges but found 'Field keeper Billy Inwood in fine form. The second half saw Field played some excellent stuff, they went close on several occasions, the closest a penalty appeal followed by two goal line clearances all in one move 5 mins from time. For Field everybody played very well but special mentions must go to Inwood who looked a class act and also Luke Wellstead and Andy King who both gave everthing for the cause.

'Field put up a good display against a much older and very strong Woking Academy side on Wednesday night. 'Field's starting line up included 6 of the Clubs current u16 side but they let a Woking side, of nearly all u18 players in their last year of youth football, know they had been in a match. The first half was goalless and a very close encounter Andy Carr of Woking having the best two chances of a very close and competitive 45 mins. The second half was much in the same vein until with 25 mins to go 'Field Centre Back James Barrett sustained a knee injury and was forced to leave the game, the reshuffle unsettled 'Field and also Wokings superior fitness from full time training started to show. Shortly afterwards a throw on the left was not cleared, leaving a player in on goal, he made no mistake with a good strike from close range to open the scoring. 'Field had given everything and started to look very tired for the last 15 min's, their cause not helped by a red card for Flavio Cappiello. Woking went on to score twice more the first an unfortunate o.g from stand in centre back Mike Tasker followed by a goal from Carr, but all in all it was a pleasing display from 'Field's young side.
Squad: Billy Inwood, Joe Taylor, James Barrett, Tyler Coate, Jamie Folley, Stuart Pain, Jerome Smart, Mike Tasker, Sam Black, Flavio Cappiello, Sam Lewiston. Subs: Max Galbraith, Liam Stone, Luke Wellstead, Sam Pothecary, Andy King.
A very poor performance at Calthorpe Park on Wednesday night saw Field leave with no points against a very well organised and hard working Fleet side. From the start Field found no fluency in their passing and everybody except Liam Stone in goal looked well below par, Fleet were quicker and more determined in every department. The first goal came a couple of mins before half time, poor marking resulted in a player breaking free on the left of the box he made no mistake burying the ball from close range. A break down the right followed by a good cross and header midway through the second half deservedly sealed the points for a hungry Fleet side.

Two excellent first half goals from Sam Lewiston and Sam Black proved to be enough to give Field all three points on Monday night. Fields first half performance was very good and all stemmed from a fine display of goal keeping by Billy Inwood, his handling was faultless all night and he was equal to everything thrown at him making good saves at vital times. Tyler Coate put in a great performance at Sweeper reading the game well behind centre halves Jerome Smart and Mike Tasker who both gave their all for the cause. With the game evenly balanced mid way through the first half, both sides having had a couple of chances, Lewiston broke the deadlock, his pace taking him clear before he coolly chipped the keeper for no 1. Black then extended the lead shortly with a quality finish, he eluded a couple of players in the box before rifling home into the corner of the net. Molesey upped the pace in the second half as they went in search of the goal that would bring them back into the game. Luke Wellstead, Sam Pothecary and Max Galbraith worked tirelessly in midfield to deny them space to create any opportunities and wing backs Andy King and Flavio Cappiello both defended well but also looked a real attacking threat when Field had the ball. 10 mins from time Molesey finally pulled a goal back as a ball eluded Galbraith in the box and their striker was on hand to stab home, but Field were not rattled and held on to take the points.

Field had the slight upper hand throughout most of the match, but it was a much improved and fired up Chersey Town side who took all three points in a very keenly contested match. 'Field's young side put in a good performance, they only had only four genuine u18's in the team, the majority of the side made up of the clubs under 16s, as with previous occasions the young players all performed admirably and gained valuable experience for the future. Both sides played well in the first half, Flavio Cappiello had a couple of good chances to put 'Field ahead, Clark Gooding in the Chertsey goal making a great save from one effort, while David Gethin spurned a good chance at the other end for Chertsey. In the second half neither side looked much like scoring until a needless free kick was given away on the edge of the Field box 20 min's from time, a great strike from their sub gave Chertsey a shock lead and led to scenes of mass celebration, showing how much it meant to them. Field then pressed forward relentlesly in search of an equaliser, Jamie Folley who had a very good game looking a real threat down the right. Daniel Locke had two good chances to bring his side back into the game but failed to hit the target on both occasions, before poor marking allowed Chertsey to score a second near the end to spark riotous scenes of celebration in their camp.

Two goals apiece for Daniel Locke and Flavio Cappiello plus one from Sam Lewiston, Jamie Folley and an O.G saw Field to a comfortable win even though they played below par.
Walton & Hersham took the lead early on, lost possession in midfield resulted in a quick break and cross that was headed home from 10 yards. Field never settled and struggled to string any passes together, they gave the ball away frequently. The equaliser came just prior to half time, Cappiello gambled in the box and reacted first to poke the ball past the keeper. The second was a cracker, a quick free kick released Sam Black down the right his cross was met powerfully by Lewiston, his header flashed into the net giving the keeper no chance. The third was Cappiello again, he expertly rounded the keeper and rolled the ball home. A second goal from Walton brought the game back to life as a contest as Field looked a bit unsettled for a while until Folley weaved into the home box only to be upended, Locke scored from the resulting penalty. A near post flick on from Alan Gowan saw Locke make it five and an own goal after Cappiello wipped the ball into the box made it six. Folley rounded off the scoring with a great strike after a rehearsed free kick move. James Barrett another of the clubs u16s had a fine debut at centre back before sustaining a back injury that saw him withdrawn near the end.

Field went through to the next round of the cup against all the odds on Wednesday night as due to the early meet time and injuries seven senior players were unable to play. The team started with six of the clubs under 16s in the line up and three more on the bench against a strong Lewisham Borough side. Any fears Field had of not being able to compete were soon put to one side as the side started very brightly showed great appetite for the cup match. The opening goal went Fields way in a match that never saw them behind, Daniel Lockes cross was headed home by Sam Lewiston at the far post. Dave Shutt, Mike Tasker and Tyler Coate all coped well with the pacey Lewisham forwards while wing back Mike Robson did a good job on Lewishams most dangerous player yet still found time to get forward. Field with Luke Wellstead and Max Galbraith working really hard in midfield looked in little danger until rare piece of indecision in the defence allowed Lewisham to draw level just prior to half time. The second half continued much the same as the first until a great turn in the box saw Flavio Cappiello lose his man only to then be brought crashing down, Locke stepped up and kept his nerve to restore Fields lead. Again Lewisham came back, a fast break resulting in the ball being forced home despite Taskers desperate lunge on the goal line that earned him a booking as the ball went in off his arm. It was all set up for a home win now but sub Joe Taylor had other ideas, he raced in to receive a short corner then returned it to Cappiello, his ball into the box was brilliantly met by Andy King who volleyed home what proved to be the winner. Lewisham not yet finished went all out for an equaliser, only a brave punch from Keeper Liam Stone and a last ditch challenge from Taylor prevented them forcing extra time.

A confident display of good passing and finishing saw Field take all three points on a wet Wednesday night in Woking Park. Field had the majority of possession for the first half an hour and it was no surprise when Sam Black ran clear to open the scoring with a precise chip. This sparked Moles best spell of the game, they too passed the ball well and pushed Field back for a 15 min period going close on a couple of occasions. The second half saw Field again take the upper hand as good teamwork, with Luke Wellstead in particular playing well, open up Moleseys defense several times. It was Flavio Cappiello who gave Field the breathing space they were looking for, he ran on to a through ball from Stuart Pain to score the second goal. The third was not long in coming either, Cappiello again on hand to convert from close range to settle an entertaining clash

A poor first half performance from Field cost them against a strong Staines side who deservedly opened up a two goal advantage going into the break. The second half saw an improved performance from Field, the introduction of Jamie Folley caused Staines numerous problems down the right and he had a hand in both the goals that brought Field level. First Mike Tasker reduced the deficit with a strike from the edge of the box, then a header from Dan Locke put them on even terms. For a period Field had the upper hand and Staines seemed a bit rattled, only a fine save from the Staines keeper prevented Lockes free kick from putting the home side in front. The next goal was to prove to be the decider and with Field not defending as well on the night as the have in recent games it went to Staines, this helped them to settle again before a goal in the final minute finished the scoring on the night.

The eagerly anticipated clash between Woking and Westfield at youth level saw a fiercely contested but sporting match on Monday night at Kingfield. The game was pretty even as two good teams wrestled for the upper hand throughout, though perhaps Wokings superior fitness from full time training was a factor. A vital turning point, in a game of few clear cut chances, came midway through the first half when a Woking player turned on the edge of the box and hit the ball goalwards, Billy Inwood in the Field goal had it covered but pulled his hand back believing the ball was going wide only to see it spin just inside the far post. Field then had a couple of opportunities to reply first 15 year old wing back Flavio Cappiello, who had a very good game had a great chance, then Sam Black raced clear from Dan Lockes flick on only for a subtle tug to unsettle him as he was about to pull the trigger. Woking worked really hard when not in possession closing down very quickly and stopping Field from playing their usual passing game, they also kept the ball really well when they got it. Fields back three of Tyler Coate, Stuart Pain and 15 year old Joe Taylor were all outstanding on the night coping with everything that was thrown at them. The second and killer goal came mid way through the second half, with everybody pushed forward the ball was given away cheaply and a classic piece of counter attacking saw Woking sweep the length of the field before a great cross-field ball was smashed home by Mark Dackombe at the far post. The stronger side on the night won, but though the result was disappointing Field still remain top of the table, two points ahead of Woking both sides having played 4 games.

Field came out on top in an evenly matched and fiercely contested game in which Sandhurst started the better having a strong early period before Field slowly wrestled the upper hand with a combination of solid defending, crisp passing, hardwork and good movement.
In the first half 15 year old Liam Stone making his debut in goal made a fine fingertip save prior to Field taking the lead. They did so when a flowing move down the right saw Sam Black breakaway, his perfect ball across the box found the excellent Mike Tasker who was on hand to calmly bury the ball from close range. Field were close to extending their lead on several occasions, Daniel Locke twice had the ball in the Sandhurst net only for both efforts to be ruled out and Andy King, who played really well, broke away and whipped in a dangerous ball, any touch would have been enough.
The second half started much the same as the first with Field having slightly the upper hand, that was until the ball dropped to the dangerous Sandhurst No 9 who was about 35 yards out, he hit a fantastic shot that flew into the top corner for the equaliser. The No 9 was probably Sandhursts best player but a superbly marking job by 15 year old centre back Joe Taylor made sure that he did not become their match winner. The equaliser seemed to bring the best out of Field and they upped their game and again took the lead as Locke out jumped everyone to head home a free kick from Stuart Pain. Sandhurst still were not finished and went close on a couple of occasions one effort thumping the crossbar before falling to safety. The final goal came from the trusty boot of Stuart Pain his inswinging corner deceiving everyone as it went directly in for no 3 and three more valuable points.

Goals in each half from Andy King and Sam Black were enough to see Field to a comfortable victory on Monday night.
Field though not always at their fluent best built on strong performances from the back three of Mike Tasker, Joe Taylor and Tyler Coate, while wing backs Jamie Folley and Flavio Cappiello both looked a threat to Gs when ever they received the ball. Goal No 1 came when Daniel Locke played the ball across the face of the goal for King who coverted in style from an acute angle. Luke Wellstead and Alan Gowan in midfield both enjoyed improved performances from the previous week rarely wasting the ball and Billy Inwood in the Field goal, though rarely tested, showed his class with one fantastic fingertip save, while at the other end Field nearly extended their lead when a fierce volley from Locke flew just past the upright. The second half saw Field continue to dominate and a fine through ball from sub Ashley Sharp released Black only for the latters shot to flash agonizingly wide. It was not to be long though before the second goal came Black again running clear and this time slotting calmly into the far corner to secure the points.

Lewes FC 4 Westfield 1
Fields dreams of succeeding Man United as FA Youth Cup winners we dashed at the first hurdle as they went down to a very classy, strong and well drilled Lewes side on Thursday night.
The Lewes set up was fantastic and they provided a superb surface to play on so all was set up for a really good match. The first half was keenly contested and close, with the match finely balanced when Field lost possession in the centre of the park, Lewes broke at pace down the right, a great cross being dispatched at the far post for number one. Field came back strongly and when Daniel Locke was brought down right on the edge of the box in a very dangerous area they looked to have a great opportunity to draw level. What happened next had a big impact on the match, rather than directly strike the free kick into the box they took a short one that was intercepted and again Lewes broke with great speed running the length of the pitch to make it 2-0. Prior to half time Mike Tasker had two great chances to reduce the deficit but the score remained the same going into half time.
Field brought on Jamie Folley at half time and came out really determined in the second half, for the first 15 mins they put Lewes under constant pressure only for the first chance Lewes had in the second half to be clinically finished leaving a mountain to climb. The game now became stretched out as players started running with the ball instead of the neat passing of earlier. There was one further goal from Lewes and a late consolation from Locke a deserved reward for Fields efforts.
All in all it was a decent effort and Fields promising young squad who had six 15 year old on the pitch at the end of the game will all have hopefully learned from the experience.
Squad: Billy Inwood, Andy King, Tyler Coate, Stuart Pain, Joe Taylor, Flavio Cappiello, Alan Gowan, Luke Wellstead, Mike Tasker, Sam Black, Dan Locke. Subs: Jamie Folley, Steve Buckland, Dave Shutt, James Barratt, Liam Stone.
Goals from Mike Tasker, Daniel Locke, Jerome Smart, Stuart Pain and Sam Black gave Field three points and just the start to the league season they were looking for on Wednesday night. The first half was quite even, but Billy Inwood in the Field goal was looking very confident, showing excellent handling and back three of Joe Taylor, Pain and Sweeper Tyler Coate were all playing really well to restrict Chertsey to only a couple of chances. Offensively Flavio Cappiello at left wing back was having a good game as was Mike Tasker in midfield. Field created several chances with Black and Locke combining well up front and both going close on a couple of occasions but it was Tasker who opened the scoring, bravely diving in to convert a long throw from close range.
Field were much the better side in the second half and it was no surprise when Locke powered through to extend the lead, then Cappiellos corner was flicked on by Andy King for Smart to gleefully smash home no 3, followed by a Pain special from a free kick on the edge of the box to made it four and Black coolly lobbing home for no 5 to end a very satisfying night.

'Field missing several players due to holidays and family commitments started the new season with a convincing and controlled 3-0 victory against Cobham on Wednesday night. The goals came from Stuart Pain and Sam Black in the first half and Steve Buckland early in the second.

Binfield FC 1 Westfield 3
An excellent performance by ‘Field who were missing seven players and included eight 15 year olds in the squad saw them run out 3-1 winners against a good Binfield side on Wednesday night. From the start Sam Black was in inspired form, his quality passing and strong running caused Binfield all sorts of problems. The whole ‘Field team passed the ball really well and it was no supprise when Daniel Locke opened the scoring with a superb dipping 25 yard strike. Locke then confidently made it two from the spot after a brilliant mazey run from Black was ended when he wads brought down in the box as he homed in on the Binfield goal. Goal three came from Wajhd Hussain he showed quick feet and calmly slotted into the far corner of the net shortly after coming on.
The second half saw numerous changes by ‘Field and a change in formation from Binfield to counter 'Field's midfield dominance where Jerome Smart was enjoying a strong game. The game now became more even with Binfield creating more than they had in the first half, but resolute defending from Stuart Pain and Tyler Coate and a solid display from Billy Inwood in goal restricted clear chances to a minimum. Binfield did deservedly pulled a goal back late on when a shot went under Scott Pinnells who had taken over from Inwood in goal. All in all it was a good work out with all the young players gaining some important experience and doing well.
Squad: Billy Inwood, Dave Shutt, Tyler Coate, Stuart Pain, Alan Gowan, Jerome Smart, Mike Tasker, Sam Black, Sam Lewiston, Wajhd Hussain, Duke Monroe, James Kealy, Ross Melinn, Scott Pinnells, Tom Bentley, +(Guest Adam Rivett).
‘Field looked to have all 3 points in the bag until keeper Mike Brawley was deemed to have fouled a Casuals player in the box giving them a last min penalty and a share of the points that had looked unlikely until then. The first half was scrappy and pretty even with neither side able to make much impression. But the second half was a different story with ‘Field playing well and having much the upper hand. The goal came from a superb Stuart Pain in-swinging corner that was met by Luke Wellstead who fired home in style, Pain who has been in great form in recent weeks put numerous quality balls into the box throughout the match and caused the Casuals defence major problems that ‘Field should have made pay. At the other end Casuals were having no joy, centre back Jerome Smart looking solid and Liam Pestle having a influential and assured game at sweeper. It was cruel on the team when the late penalty cost the two points in their final game of this season.

Field showed great character to beat an Ashford side who have been on a good winning run recently. They got off to the perfect start Daniel Locke opening the scoring from the edge of the box very early on, Luke Wellstead enjoying a strong game in the centre of midfield then met a superb Stuart Pain cross with a powerful header to doubled their lead going into half time. Ashford came out fired up for the second half and pulled a goal back after an error from keeper Billy Inwood, who had an otherwise good game. Immediately from the restart Field broke forward and a powerful finish from Locke restored their 2 goal advantage. As the half wore on a scramble in the box resulted in Ashford reducing the deficit to one goal again and set up a tense last 10 mins as they pushed forward in search of an equaliser, but some resolute defending and strong tackling meant that Field held on for a deserved 3 points against strong opposition.

All the goals came in the first half of a game in which Field played well but got no reward. The first goal came after 30 mins good work down the left between Luke Wellstead and Jake Galbraith released Sam Black his pinpoint cross was despatched by Liam Pestle. Almost immediately from the re-start Casuals they drew level when they were awarded a penalty when Jerome Smart brought down their centre forward in the box. The deciding goal came when keeper Billy Inwood spilled a catch and it went straight to a casuals forward to stab home. The second half was all one-way traffic but try as they might and with several good chances Field could not find the equaliser their play deserved.

Fields movement and passing, missing in recent weeks, was a feature of a good team performance that saw them go in level at half time but go on to win the game scoring five second half goals without reply. The game started fairly evenly before a Keith Bradburys goal gave Field an early advantage. Quick thinking brought Chertsey level, they played a short corner and scored with an excellent header from the resulting cross. They then took the lead with a well struck volley from the edge of the box before Liam Pestle coming in late at the far post pounced to level things just before half time. Field were in tremendous in the form in the second half with Sam Black in great nick scoring four of the goals. Mins from the re-start Black showed his sharpness to put Field back in front, next Sam Pothecary capped a good performance heading home Stuart Pains cross. Blacks sweetly struck volley then made it 5. Sub Ashley Sharp was up-ended in the box for Black to duly completing his hatrick from the spot before capping his performance with his fourth. Special mention must go to 15 year old Jake Galbraith who had an excellent game on the left of midfield looking very comfortable on the ball and rarely wasting it.

Two defensive errors and missing three clear-cut chances cost Field dear as they went in at half time trailing 0-2. A penalty from Daniel Locke followed by a Liam Pestle header from Lockes cross saw them level early in the second half, but it was not to be as Ashford scored the winner mid way through the second half. As Field chased another equaliser it took a fine late double save from Mike Brawley to restrict the Ashford score to three.

Field used this match to experiment with next season in mind and also play some established players in different positions, there were no genuine u18s picked, five of the new u15 team were added to the squad and all the three u16s in the current squad started the match. All the younger players did really well on the night with Sam Pothecary the pick of the bunch, his assured performance in midfield looking very promising for next year. Field with Liam Pestle looking very comfortable at sweeper created several good chances for the strikers before Daniel Locke playing at centre half on the night came forward for a set piece and showed good technique to fire home from the edge of the box for the opener. Field then doubled their lead, Ashley Sharp made space on the edge of the box and found the bottom corner of the net with a well placed shot. Several changes at half time and through the second half saw all the u15 players enter the fray Jamie Folley on the right delivering some good crosses and Sam Lewiston showing up and working really hard up front. With 25 mins to go Scotty Pinnells took over in goal and went on to make two great saves as Heath threw players forward trying to find a way back into the game against the inexperienced but determined young line-up. The night turned out to be a really good work out with all the players tried showing they have a lot to offer.

The first twenty mins saw Field play some good stuff and it was no surprise when they opened the scoring through Sam Black. Gs replied to draw level from the penalty spot and it seemed to really lift them, they now looked more up for it than Field and were winning most of the 50/50 balls, a second goal made the score 2-1 at half time. A subdued second half performance from Field saw them create few chances and Gs confirmed their win when a deep cross somehow reached a player at the far post who duly despatched it.

Daniel Lockes second half goal was enough to give Field a hard fought but deserved three points on Wednesday night. In a very competitive game Field played well through out looking sharp in all areas. Billy Inwood in goal looked assured and made a crucial save in the first half while centre backs Keith Bradbury, Joe Dilena and Mark Liney all looked very solid against the pacy Bedfont forwards. Field came close on several occasions in the first half, Luke Wellstead in central midfield feeding the forwards with some probing passes. The breakthrough came midway through the second half when Locke fed a fine ball to Jerome Smart to go through one on one with the keeper, his shot was saved but Locke continued his run and pounced on the rebound to score what proved to be the decider.

A superb second half performance from Field came close but was not quite enough to get them something out of a game in which a slow start cost them dear. Ks a very good side who have a 100% league record got off to the perfect start a curling shot finding the far corner of the net to open the scoring. Field should then have drawn level after being awarded a penalty but Daniel Lockes spot kick was well saved. The next goal had everybody confused the ball bobbled about in the Field area before going for a goal kick only for the linesman to say it had crossed the goal line and a goal was awarded to both teams surprise. Field had every right to feel nothing was going their way when mins later a harsh penalty was given and duly dispatched. Just prior to half time Billy Inwood in the home goal punched weakly and a Ks volley home well to make it four.
The second half was a totally different affair Field came out really fired up and it was no surprise when their pressure was rewarded Locke who had a really good game bent home a terrific free kick to give them hope. Now their was only one side in it and Field piled forward, Stuart Pain delivering several telling crosses and putting the Ks defence under constant pressure and new signing Chris McKay looking a good acquisition with his bursts from midfield. With 20 mins to go Liam Pestle gave Field real hope of a shock recovery when he found the bottom corner of the net from inside the box for number two. It should have been three immediately afterwards a great move involving Jerome Smart, Pain and Sam Pothecary should have reduced the deficit to one goal only for Locke close range header to be smothered at the far post. The final chance can when Ashley Sharp came a whisker away from a certain goal failing to connect with Lockes precise through ball.

An entertaining game saw Field scored three times in first half to put the game beyond a spirited Gs side who competed very well throughout. Liam Pestle had an excellent game and opened the scoring for the visitors, his long range left foot strike slipping through the hands of the home keeper, who had an otherwise solid game, and into the net. The next two goals saw strikers Sam Black and Daniel Locke combine well, on both occasions Locke fed Black quality balls, the later finishing both with precision. Although comfortable throughout Field were never as commanding in the second half and Gs got a deserved consolation goal when a good move down the left resulted in a fine headed goal. It was good all round team performance from Field but worthy of a special mention for were strong performances from Luke Wellstead, Nick Flynn and Jerome Smart and also very pleasing was Blacks second half performance were he showed another side to his game by opening the home defence on several occasions with probing balls, one which found Mike Tasker in lots of space, his cross/shot was dispatched by the hard working Locke for the fourth and killer goal.

Sam Black's precise lob gave 'Field all three points against Sandhurst Town on Wednesday night. 'Field played some neat football in the first half and looked the stronger side, it was only the excellent Sandhurst keeper who kept the score down to 1-0 making several good saves. The second half was much more even as Sandhurst went all out in search of an equaliser. Towards the end Billy Inwood in the home goal made a fine save to secure the points, Joe Dilena had an excellent game through out at centre back.

The spoils were shared in a tremendous game that saw Field score 5 high quality goals and also show their resilience as they twice fought back from being two goals behind. The game was evenly balanced throughout and it was Molesey who drew first blood scoring two quick goals midway through the first half, Field replied just at the right time, Liam Pestle volleying home in style a few mins prior to half time. The second half again was again very evenly balanced when Field won a free kick 20 yards out, quick thinking from Daniel Locke saw him cleverly bend a fine strike round the wall for a well deserved equaliser. Field were now well on top but in keeping with a topsy-turvy game Molesey again went 2 goals up, a long ball into the box was not dealt with for the first and possession was lost in a vital area for the second. Field though were in never sat die mood and the excellent Sam Black reduced the deficit as he fired home from a narrow angle, next came possibly the best goal of the night as Black beat several players and smashed a superb unstoppable left foot shot into the top corner. Still Field were not finished and another fine strike from Pestle put them in front for the first time on the night. Molesey however saved their best goal till last and a dipping late strike from range gave them a share of the points.

A goal in each half from Sam Black gave 'Field all three points against Chertsey Town on a wet Wednesday night. 'Field always looked slightly the stronger side, Joe Dilena enjoying a particularly good game at centre back for the home side. Black's first goal was a great long range strike that struck the cross bar and found the net via the Chertsey keeper, his second came as a result of fine work down the right by Nick Flynn who's cut back was steered into the far corner of the net.

After a reasonably even early start 'Field were put on the back foot conceeding a soft goal as a ball that should have been comfortably cleared wasn't and Martin Ryan cleverly bent the ball into the top corner. The score then stayed at 1-0 till half time, 'Field came out looking in determined mood at the begining of the second only for a wonder strike to again knock thier confidence. After this Hampton the went on to recorded a comfortable and well deserved win with two further goals putting the gloss on a good team performance by them. Keith Bradbury scored a late consolation for 'Field converting a Stuart Pain corner 5 mins from time.

Goals from Jerome Smart, Jake Galbraith, Liam Pestle and Daniel Locke and a good and commited all round team performance gave Field all three vital points on Wednesday night at Fleet.
Field carried on their good form from Monday night and took the game to Fleet from the first whistle, the passing was crisp and the movement good. Skipper Smart opened the scoring firing home low and hard when the ball dropped to him on the edge of the box. Nick Flynn then went close after a good run before Galbraith whos form in the last two games has been a real bonus, made it two when he cleverly evaded two players in the box before finding the top corner. Fleet then showed that Field would not have things all their own way as a good move down the right resulted in one goal being pulled back and a top draw save from Luke Wellstead prevented an equaliser. Fields third just before half time was a fine team move finished by Pestle who bravely slid in to ensured that Lockes goal bound shot found the back of the net. Locke then added the fourth converting a cross wipped in from the left. Sub Rob Lovesey on his arrival had several good efforts but the final goal went to Fleet 5 mins from time a powerful left foot strike giving Wellstead no chance. For Field, back four of Mark Liney, Joe Dilena, Keith Bradbury and Stuart pain all had solid games giving Field a solid base to build on and Striker Sam Black had an excellent game keeping his composure under some strong challenges whilst rarely giving the ball away and using it really well, particularly in the second half going up the hill.

Sam Black's well struck goal from Daniel Locke's flick on after 9 min's saw Field leading 1-0 until 10 mins into the second half. They had several other good opportunities to be further in front and looked in no trouble defensively appearing to have turned the corner after two bad cup results. The game then turned on a mix-up between keeper and centre back which allowed a Hampton forward to nip in and roll the ball into an empty net for the equaliser. The uncertainty of the previous two weeks then came flooding back as Hampton who had looked a beaten side now started to play with confidence. Four more goals followed, a couple courtesy of school boy errors and gave Hampton a comfortable win that had never looked likely earlier.

Two goals from Sam Black, one from Ross Murray and an own goal gave Field three hard fought points over previously unbeaten Molesey on Wednesday night.
The first half was very even, it was Molesey who drew first blood, they got away down the right and a cross ball was forced home from close range to open the scoring. Fields response came from Black who broke free, held off a pacey Molesey defender and expertly finished for the equliser.
The second half saw Field impose themselves more on the game and the balance started to sway their way when they were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box which was superbly bent with pace into the top corner by Murray.
With Molesey more intent on arguing than playing now Field extended their lead further Stuart Pains inswinging corner going in off a defender under pressure from Mike Brawley. Black then capped a fine personal performace and put the game beyond Molesey with the fourth. A fine long range chip gave Molesey a second and put a fairer complexion on the score line of a closely contested game.

A good all-round team display against a game Bedfont side with two goals each for strikers Sam Black and Daniel Locke gave Field 3 points and a good start to this seasons league campaign on Wednesday night.
Field started very strongly and capitalised on their early dominance scoring two early goals to put Bedfont on the back foot, before a long ball from the keeper and some all-round slack play allowed Bedfont back into the game on 35 mins, soon after Black restored Fields two goal advantage with a stunning finish from Lockes precise flick on.
The second half never lived up to the first in terms of football but Mike Brawley in the Field goal looked very solid as did the defence, the fourth the final goal was added mid way through the half to secure three well deserved points.

Field clinched the runners-up spot on Wednesday night with a well deserved win and a draw in a double header against previously unbeaten Aldershot Town. Field played really well in the first game their passing was sharp and everybody worked really hard for each other. The goal came when Phil Parsons was manhandled in the box as a corner was swung in. Daniel Locke confidently dispatched the resulting spot kick for the winner.
The second game saw Field looking more tired but still playing some neat football, Adam Rivetts volley went close after a good cross from Parsons down the right before a slip at the back to allowed Aldershot to take the lead. Field were not willing to conceed the game though. Alex Pitt worked tirelessly in the middle as they fought their way back into the game. It was another penalty that gave Field a point this time Mike Brawley was fouled and Locke brought Field level from the spot.
