Tadley face 'bogey' side trip in catch-up race

Danny Dolan: where did the time come from?

TADLEY CALLEVA go to ‘bogey’ side Hythe and Dibden on Saturday buoyed by lest week’s extraordinary 5-4 win at Shaftesbury that saw the home side it back a 5-1 deficit in 15 minutes of stoppage time added by the referee.

“Where he got the time from I’ve no idea,” said bemused manager Danny Dolan, although he was delighted with the points against the side a place above his own in the Wessex League table.

“We are only nine points behind third place, and anything is possible, “ he said.

As well as the Hythe trip, Tadley must go to Baffins Milton Rovers in midweek, but Dolan is happy with the way his side is performing. “We are playing good football, and the lads we have got in from Hungerford are doing superbly, Chad Abrams, Kallum Thomas and Josh Edwards at centre half.”

Edwards misses the Hythe trip however, but Dan Vickers, Sam Hamilton and Cian Condon all return to the squad.

Town surrounded by rivals ready to pounce 

THATCHAM TOWN set about the task of reclaiming top spot in the Hellenic League’s Premier Division when they go to title outsiders Highworth Town on Saturday.

Last Saturday’s FA Vase exit at Bristol Manor Farm was followed by Town losing the leadership in midweek when both Bracknell Town and Thame United nipped above them, and with matches in hand.

Highworth could do the same on Saturday if they win in Wiltshire, and so could Flackwell Heath with success at Lydney.

Moreton Rangers are Town’s visitors on Tuesday night in the delayed League Cup tie called off two weeks ago.
