LONDON APSA

What collection of whizz kids (highly paid no doubt!) came up with an August 4th start to the Football Season? Right when parents (players) contemplate taking the family holidays and some players are in the midst of a League cricket programme. Methinks quite silly. 

Last season was good on the field, but a nightmare off it, the worst I can recollect over a fifty year connection with LMFC. To  that end hopefully the introduction of Richard Powell and his son Chris as Directors will strengthen the Admin side, together with Pippa Salt on the Commercial/Sponsorship side of the Club.

We thank Jason Maher for his great efforts at the Club. Jason stood down, a month ago as Team Manager. Some Essex based players have left the Club, the most notable being keeper Paul Wood who has joined Saffron Walden Town, we thank Paul for his efforts and wish him well for the future.

Congratulations to Robbie Benson, Jules Mumford and Jim Walker who make up the management team and we say well done in getting together a viable squad in such a short time. We started our mid summer campaign against Great Yarmouth, who commanded the first half and we did likewise over the second period. The result a  2 -1 defeat saw us miss a penalty in the last minute of the game. The following Wednesday we took on Whitton, we managed a draw one goal each, we perhaps had the chances to win the game.

The big build up to the FA Cup game against London APSA at Aveley did not bode well. Having fixed his Stag event at Great Yarmouth pre season Luke Simpson took three players on his event out of contention including new keeper Sam Mansfield. Thank goodness Long Melford play in the Thurlow Nunn League, and have pleasant trips into Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire to play away games, travelling to Aveley for a Cup game is not a great experience!

The team travelled by minibus to the venue, only to find the influential Ashley Skeggs unwell and therefore unable to start. Confronted with a gusting wind down the pitch Melford then proceeded to non perform, against a team that on paper they should have beaten. The summary of the game can be concluded in the fact that all the goals were gift goals, APSA when two ahead were generous enough to reciprocate our generosity by firing home the best goal of the match, into their own net.

The general feeling seemed to be what a wasted 63 mile journey, when really we underperformed against the weakest opposition so far this season. We can make amends as we still have the FA Vase, when we entertain Bowers and Pitsea at Stoneylands (they finished below APSA last season) so let us build up some steam for this game and to also maintain our League status. Rant over!  Lets be having you!  CHENOBERET
