'Winning weekend for Griff youngsters'
Two hard fought games over the weekend saw Griff through to the third round of the Tamworth cup on Saturday and bag all three points against second placed league rivals Binley Woods on Sunday. Saturday’s match against Tamworth side Gillway South was a very tight game, with only a brilliantly taken free kick from George Brindley separating the two sides. It was a strong Griff performance with Jonathon Vickers edging the 'man of the match' vote. Sunday’s league game paired the two top teams of the Blue League with Griff again producing some fine football in a solid team performance. A well placed header from Owen Painting half way through the first half was soon cancelled out by an unstoppable free kick from the Binley Woods’ outfit. Griff's team performance was matched only by the tenacity of Binley's goalkeeper who produced fine saves from Josh Rathod, Jack Webb and Owen Painting. Binley's chance to take the lead was also foiled by an excellent save from Griff's keeper Sam Hambridge. With five minutes to go Griff's pressure and dominance was rewarded when Jack Webb hammered home the second goal which was quickly followed with his second goal of the game to ensure all three points were collected by Griff.
A well contested Green League game saw London Road never give up against Christ the King, who grabbed the points through some good performances throughout particularly from Tre Foster and Joseph Madden.
In the Red League, Coventry Sphinx lost to a well drilled and determined Ernesford side, who’s Aaron Pointer scored a well-deserved hat-trick.

Honours were shared in a ten goal B Division thriller when a last minute goal by Andrew Scott earned Finham Lions a well earned equaliser against Athletic United. A thrilling end to end game saw Finham take an early lead through William Vines before Athletic fought back to lead the game 2- 1 at half time. Athletic established a 4- 2 lead shortly after half time thanks to a Ciaren Eccles hat trick, but Finham came back strongly at the end of the match with their man of the match Christian Lynch scoring two goals and Vines adding one more. There could have been further goals but for excellent performances from both goalkeepers including a penalty save from Finham’s Chris Perry.
Kenilworth Wardens maintained their winning run in the A Division with a 5 – 1 away victory over Chapelfield Colts. Colts opened the scoring with the first goal after 10 minutes before Wardens started dominating the match with their free flowing attacking football. Will Lamond scored the equaliser with a brilliant strike, quickly followed by two excellent goals from Charlie Smith who twice chipped the keeper. Adam Newbold made it 4-1 just before half time with the help of a deflection and Callum O’Sullivan added the fifth in the second half to end the contest. Man of the match was awarded to Tom O’Callaghan who had an excellent game for the Wardens against his old team.

Chapelfields Colts (Red) took the lead in the first minute of the game against Whitley Juniors when Brendan Sharp scored from 30 yards out. Man of the match was Whitley's goalkeeper Ryan Dean who pulled off excellent saves throughout a game that was played in a good spirit by both sets of players.
Goalkeepers Conor Walton and Tom Bryce both had excellent games as Christ the King and Coventry Sphinx played out an entertaining draw. Joe Clough and Paolo Razza in the King’s defence stood firm and Sphinx defender Laurie Beaufoy defended powerfully against Abdullah Dawud and James Mills clever forward play. Eventually Dawud and Mills combined one time too many and Mills headed the equaliser to cancel out George Shilton’s 1st half strike.
Within the first 15 minutes of their A Division game, London Road Lions had stunned Dunlop with two Ryan Haraburda strikes. Dunlop fought back to be level at half time and dominated the second half when Ellis eventually headed them in front. A 4-2 success was secured when Stefan Grudzinski fired home after Kyle Hickman's shot had come back off the post.

A tough but entertaining end to end A2 game was dominated by strong central defensive performances, particularly from Mount Nod’s Joe Johnson and Earlsdon’s Sam Dorrans and Reece Palmer. The highlight of the match saw Tom Hawker’s top corner bound bullet header being tipped somehow over the bar by a brilliant save from Earlsdon’s Man of the Match Peter Baldyga.

Finham Park Colts took the initiative on a calm but cold Sunday morning with 2 goals in quick succession against Rugby Town. In an attack minded start it was James Marklew who was first on target for the home team, followed shortly afterwards by Johnny Openshaw with his first of two goals on the day. Rugby 2002 seemed awoken by the fast paced start and responded with a well taken goal to bring the score line back to 2-1. With both sides now looking for goals in what was developing into a fairly open contest it was Rugby who were first with the opportunity to level the scoring when they were awarded a clear penalty shortly before half time. As the spot kick was directed to the left of Finham's Lewis Reynolds, he reacted quickly and at full stretch, just managed to edge the ball onto the inside of his left post. Although the Rugby players reacted faster to the rebound, it was cleared by the relieved Finham defence. The incident provoked Finham to take the game to the away side and within minutes James Marklew confidently pounced for his second goal of the match. At 3-1 Rugby still looked dangerous when going forward and had opportunities to respond almost immediately but it was David Edden again for the home side who put Finham 4-1 up with a goal which excellently crowned a superb game for him, commanding the central midfield with a confident presence throughout the match. As the first half whistle was approaching Rugby were on target with a well worked goal and brought the game to 4-2 at the break. In a second half full of substitutions and formation changes from both sides, it was Finham who were first to strike when James Marklew completed a hat trick with his 3rd goal of the afternoon. Rugby were then rewarded for there more confident attacking second half when they brought the score to 5-3. The home team continued to attack as the final quarter of the match was played out and they were rewarded with 2 more goals. The second of the day for Johnny Openshaw brought the score to 6-3 and then Man of the Match for Finham Park Colts Curtis McEntee crowned a hardworking afternoon with the final goal to end a very entertaining match 7-3.
Ernesford Dynamos found
the going difficult against determined and well organised visitors Finham Park
Rangers. The home team eventually took the lead from a Sam Cross goal but
Rangers equalised just before half time. Clever thinking from a quick free kick
led to Rangers taking the lead. Dynamos then worked hard to produce some good
football and equalised through Will Waddell and took the lead again from a Paul
Friday header. Dynamos confidence grew and produced two more goals - the first
from Aaron Carroll who ran the length of the pitch to score and then a flowing
move was finished by Reece Gordon.
