Match Report by Tony Middleton


Both teams were unchanged from the first match, and there was a crowd of about 800 at start time, with up to 300 supporting Hornchurch. Urchins won the toss and kicked up the steep slope in the first half and began strongly, Glozier finding Parker, who was thwarted by a good tackle by Guest. Welling almost conceded a goal when a poor back pass by Guest saw an equally poor kick out by keeper Turner, and Tomlinson promptly returned the ball to Janney, who touched on to Parker and Simon played a good through pass to Lee whose final shot was not well directed and Turner saved. With urchins totally on top, it was something of a surprise when Welling went in front with their first attack. Green had played a good ball up to Kedwell and his run was ended with a well timed tackle to concede a corner. Day took the kick and MARTIN CARTHY was allowed acres of space to powerfully head home. Green then dummied Glozier and raced forward, with McFarlane covering well to play the ball away. Urchins pressed strongly, Cross to Lee and he hit the ball over the bar when well placed, and Welling then took advantage of too many Urchins upfield and Green set off on a long meandering run before being crowded out by Purdie, but he touched the ball back to Guest and Tomlinson tackled well.

Janney came more into the game and set up Cross who hit his shot badly wide when a goal looked likely, whilst at the other end Stadhart’s run was halted by McFarlane who played the ball out for a corner, which Day, as usual, took and Moore headed over the bar, with the defence once again open. Tomlinson hit a good through ball up to Lee and he won a corner which Janney took, played the ball short and then crossed the return pass into the middle where Turner palmed away, and the ball was played out by Lewis up to Green who ran on and flicked the ball forward to Stadhart, who was offside.

The over fussy referee booked Purdie and then Carthy for apparently kicking the ball away but the booking of Parker shortly afterwards was a complete farce, when Simon simply played the ball back for a free kick to be taken. The 300 away supporters were raising the roof – on they would have done had there been one to raise at the top end of the ski slope, and when Tomlinson played a long pass to Lee a goal looked likely but prompt action by Turner saved the day for Welling. Southon to Cross, and his shot was weakly hit and Turner saved, whilst Janney combined with Southon and Glozier to create an opening, with Turner again holding on to the high cross.

Welling came more into the game, Bodkin’s long run being stopped by Fletcher, and then Fletcher conceded a needless corner but Day’s kick was easily taken by Brightley, but then a good pass to Guest saw him cut in quickly and hit a shot wide. In a goalmouth scramble Bodkin’s shot was blocked and Stadhart followed up with a hard shot which cleared the bar, cleared the ground, and just missed the bus which was at the nearby bus stop. As half time approached, Urchins powered forward and bombarded the home goal. Cross was felled by Green – why no card ? – and Parker’s swerving free kick was deflected wide for a corner, which Tomlinson took, and the keeper punched out, Tomlinson played it back again and Moore managed to turn the ball out for another corner, again by Tomlinson and this time it was Carthy who turned the ball away for a third corner. Tomlinson this time found Lee and Moore eventually cleared, only for Glozier to gain possession, make ground on the left and send in a great low centre which went begging in front of goal.

One down at half time, Welling had taken good advantage with their few chances, whereas Urchins had only themselves to blame for not being in front. Second half started with an up and over – Guest played the ball up, and Stadhart hit it yards over, the ball landing on the A2 and being last heard of on the back of a lorry heading for Dover. And then it was non stop Urchinmania as they swarmed all over the Welling goal for the next 25 minutes. Janney, running rings around his massed army of markers, up to Cross, to Parker and his low shot went wide of the post. Janney again, an excellent twist and turn to send Cross away, inside to Lee and he hit the shot wide. Tomlinson to Lee and Turner dived to touch the ball around the post. Tomlinson’s corner was headed out for another corner by Benjamin and the second corner was cleared by Lewis for a third corner, which was met by McFarlane who headed narrowly over. Janney’s powerful shot was fumbled by Turner and Janney’s follow up shot was blocked off the line. Janney again, this time to Parker and his shot went out for a fourth corner – that made seven corners either side of half time. Cross was felled in full flight and the free kick was wasted, the ball being played far too short. Lee to Janney, Mark to Cross, back to Southon and his vicious drive was just too high, and this was Jamie’s last contribution as on cam Gasper to give Urchins another forward With pressure mounting Boetang was very fortunate to escape with a yellow card when his completely mistimed tackle left Glozier prone on the ground. Surely it should have been a red.

Tomlinson took the free kick, with Glozier having to stay off the pitch – what a ridiculous rule – and Gasper’s shot was bundled off the line. Janney, Gasper, Cross, Glozier and Danny’s shot was turned out for a corner, which Janney took, short to Cross and Cross’ cross was well saved by Turner. And then a goal – Gasper floated the ball over, Lee went for it, and was flattened by Moore. Up stepped MARK JANNEY to rifle the ball home. Urchins were then caught out by failing to concentrate and a good run and centre by Bodkin found CHE STADHART coming in to hit Welling back in front. Urchins were forced to come forward in droves, and even Brightley ran almost to the half way line on one occasion to act as a sweeper. But Welling took advantage of the fewer numbers at the back, and Bodkin was allowed to run clear, his shot going well wide – only for the referee to award a corner, in yet another incomprehensible decision. Bodkin again, and Brightley saved with Perkins following up hard and Brightley saved again, touching the shot around the post. Urchins pressed hard to get the equaliser they deserved, with Janney the king pin around most of the moves, but it was ironic that in stoppage time – time added on mainly for blatant time wasting – that Bodkin came forward, picked out DES BOETANG on the edge of the area, and he hit a shot firmly past Brightley – a very good goal, but why was the scorer still on the pitch? There was still time for Urchins to come back with another corner, but Janney’s centre was held by Turner.

So Urchins go out, having had the better of the play, but having failed to take a hatful of chances, whereas Welling, with far fewer openings, looked sharper in front of goal. Overall, two excellent cup matches, with a disappointing result. The little pub team from Essex had proved more than capable of playing with the best at Conference level, and they have nothing to be ashamed of, and the loud and prolonged applause from the 300 Urchins at the end was thoroughly deserved.
