The lads were looking to improve on Saturdays hard fought draw with Torpoint. But facing Weston Mill is never easy they are a well organized team. 630 kick off and Chaddlewood had some decent touches James hitting the post twice only for their keeper to make some excellent follow up saves. Next passage of play saw Chaddlewood attacking in the box only for there defense to handball in the box! Penalty. Frank wanted it, struck it well but hit the post and it couldn't be followed in. 0-0. Weston Mill got into their stride now and slotted in 2 quickfire goals 0-2 halftime. Trevor issued the hairdryer and the boys were fired up didn't take long for a good cross to come in and James was on the end of it to slot home 1-2. End to end stuff now but Chaddlewood are piling on the pressure some slick passing in their box James sees an opening right foot bang! 2-2 game on. Weston mill applying some heavy tactics by now but the boys aren't moaning it only Spurs them on. Pass comes in James is through past the last man gets tripped, professional foul he's off! Free kick. One last push now ball comes down the right side in to the box shot coming in keeper wipes the Chaddlewood player out whistle blows penalty! James steps up right foot bottom corner for the hatrick. 3-2. Alfie made superb saves to keep us in the game. Chaddlewood employ some good running the clock down tactics with a succession of throws down the right side . Full time. Well done boys what a come back . Notable displays on the day - Ollie again outstanding , James pulled out a hatrick! So well done to him and he was taking a few knocks! Harry at right back showed some quality fighting spirit having to deal with good players down his side. Frank worked hard all game . As did all the lads and that's why you won. Alfie's goal stopping performance was rewarded by WMOV who gave him the Fair Play Award, well done!
A new season and the team has high hopes! And they didn't disappoint. Chaddlewood started the match slowly with less possession but gradually got them selves into the game with some good passing, some good link up play between Dylan and Frank saw the later hit a right foot shot into the bottom corner ! 1-0. Soon followed a tap in by Dylan and a third by Frank. Torpoint got into their stride now and clawed a couple back.half time. Despite Torpoint's large squad and the ability to rotate three players at a time Chaddlewood kept going. We let in a couple easy goals maybe through tiredness but had the guile to get the equalizer through Frank's hatrick for the day. Well done lads. Special mention to Ollie defensively excellent , Frank for bossing the midfield area . Also Dylan played well upfront with Tommy breaking up play in midfield. Well done boys keep it up!! Under 12 Juniors are looking forward to facing WMOV at Home on 8th September in their only evening fixture.
Only 4 teams kicked off their 2015/2016 season today and a super start it was. Among the 4 teams they bagged 14 goals and conceeded 9. The under 12 JNR Drake team saw it fall into place with a pleasing 4 -4 draw against Torpoint. Proves these young lads have adapted to the transition from 7 aside to 9 aside. The under 12 SNR Hood team pulled a satisfying 3-2 win over their rivals AC Plymouth, which puts them in good stead for the rest of the season. The under 14 YTH Raleigh team went into the 2nd half 2 -0 down. The result of a win 5-3 over Torpoint proves the determination of the boys and the game aint over till that whistle blows ! The under 15 Defiance team had a fiesty game against Tamerton. Very slow off the blocks today but got a grip and ended with a 2-0 win. Our U18 Albion team played on Thursday and started the season well with an 8-3 win over AC Plymouth.

Our last game of 2014 was a friendly at home against Horrabridge Under 10s. We played 3 sets of 20 minutes, with the middle set as an opportunity for our development players to have some match experience. Our squad played the other 2 sets. It was a great match, fought equally hard by both teams, and the development players also had a great game, and was great to see them digging in deep and playing well, preventing many opportunities by Horrabridge. The match was rounded off by a fun penalty shoot out, where both teams took some good shots and the keepers made some excellent saves too - chocolate Santas all round at the end!
After the disruption of the arson attack in August at Hoskins Park, the home ground of Chaddlewood Miners Football Club, the local footballing community stepped up in force with offers of loan equipment. Both the container and all their equipment was destroyed in the fire so the club were very grateful for the support. News of the attack spread quickly and within a few days, a local garage in Plympton helped the club to replace the majority of the equipment that was lost. Marshall Motors SW Ltd on Valley Road, jumped at the opportunity to help the local community. Darren Brockman of Marshall Motors said “when we heard about the fire at Hoskins Field and that the children from the football teams wouldn’t be able to play football without the equipment that was lost, we immediately got in contact to see what we could do to help. Within days of speaking to the club we had ordered the equipment to make sure they could start the season on time.” Club Secretary, Teresa Hill, said “We are extremely grateful to Marshall Motors who paid in full for the replacement of all our nets, respect barriers and 4 sets of mini soccer Samba Goals. Our thanks also go to Performance Sports who provided us with all new corner flags, we had a £100 donation from Mr Eaton from our Under 12 Team and a £500 donation from Plympton Rotary Club. We also had a £1000 donation from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.” The club still have one big item to replace, which is the storage container. Discussions are underway as to how to go about this, and any further donations will go towards this replacement building. The club will be holding various fund raising events throughout the coming months. They have already done a Club Bag Pack which was offered by Sainsburys which raised a staggering £1700. Club Chairman Matt Matthew said, “I would like to add my thanks to everyone who has helped in every way so far. The replacement of the container is a big expense and we hope our local community will continue to support us in our fundraising events over the next few months. There have been, and still are, many people working hard behind the scenes since the arson attack and we are very grateful to all of them for their efforts. The next few months will be busy ones for our Fundraising Co-ordinator and we hope that, as well as the local community, all the parents within the club will do what they can to support these fundraising events.”
A huge thanks to The Sir Joshua Reynolds for letting us use their lounge for our Race Night last week. We raised £100 from the evening, with a lot of fun and laughter through the evening. Those attending had sore heads for the next day (or two!) owing to the post race pub crawl! Our next race night will be a family one, and will take place in February, more details to follow! Here's some photos from the evening
