Conference North Wrap, Results, Reports – Its The Gonzo Goal Division!

Wins for AFC Fylde, Barrow, Chorley, Oxford City and Stockport County. Guiseley FC draw with Tamworth and Boston Utd lose to drop to sixth and seventh. If you don’t believe this is one of the greatest goal machine haunts in the game, here is a taster before we go into the stats and reports. Fylde stay top thanks to Rowe’s decider against a North Ferriby side that had the chances but blew them.  Barrow bag a brace to stay second but Chorley fashion an awesome foursome. Ex Imp Adi Yussuf scores again as gung-ho goal machines Oxford City go at it again getting five in another high scoring great eight thriller at Colwyn Bay.  Stockport also enjoy a high fives in front of a fabulous nigh on 2700 high of the day in a division where they are clearly putting something in the half time tea and the local heart units are even easier than the statisticians.  Guiseley are held 2-2 by Tamworth under the new stewardship of Andy Morrell, once a dragon always the high priest of the passing game.

STMI Conference North Wrap

AFC Fylde Fly, Chorley &  Boston United win, but Barrow FC &  Stockport County draw. Guiseley beat Oxford City in the game of the day, yes you’ve guessed it goals galore again as the theories fly out of the window. Lincoln City loanee Connor Robinson got the winner in the Boston bounceback.

Enjoy fellow football fans enjoy.

Vanarama Conference logo.png Fylde stay top after an awesome foursome against Worcester, who have the makings of a top 8 side. An  Allen brace plus a Langley & Barnes strike did the damage.  Barrow, with a game in hand drew at North Ferriby 2-2. The Bluebirds are perched just 2 points behind Fylde with a game in hand . It started well when Reid gave them the lead,  Jarman (pen) & ,Emerton replied, before  Grand grabbed a late point.  Chorley headed off Hednesford at home thanks to  Ross and  Dean either side of half time. Fast improving Stockport got a great point at Solihull Moors. Sharp  and Stevenson strikes  sandwiched Knight and Beswick replies in a four goal frenzy of a second half.

Vanarama Conference logo.png Guiseley hit 40- goal Oxford City for four with a Boyes brace (20 & 25) before the free scoring citizens got in on the act – alas in the wrong net with ‘OG’s’ from  Stonehouse (43) and Santiago (78) Lincoln City loanee Connor Robinson got the winner in the Boston bounce-back as the Pilgrims struck through early door each half through Fallah 5, who then turned provider for Robinson six seconds into the second half.  The young Imp left the field to a standing ovation. In truth as Lincoln manager remarked after the Lincoln defeat at Aldershot, Connor needs match practice after breaking his nose twice, catching a virus and then not getting an opportunity to get match fit as the cash-strapped Imps have no reserves.

One In From Burnley FC and Two Out To Boston United & Whitehawk

Burnley FC centre-half  and left-back Tom Anderson is set to make his début at Aldershot tomorrow after his youth loan papers were just about rushed through today. He knows the division well after loan spells FC Halifax Town, Barrow and Hyde.

Burnley rate the lad highly and he certainly has the battling qualities we need. The 21-year-old began his career at Turf Moor and captained their youth and reserve teams before almost slipping the net through injury. However following  rehab this summer he did enough to earn a new deal at the newly promoted Premier League Club.  A tenacious tackler he earned 5 yellows in an eighteen match stint in the Conference Premier for Barrow

Tom’s full stats here

This from the Burnley FC official site shows the lads character

Spotted at Grosvenor Youth and Portaferry, Tom has represented his country at several age groups and won his first U21 cap in October 2013.  Tom also reached the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup in 2012, Conlan was given a two-year professional contract by the Clarets in April of that year.
The left-back was initially released from the club in the Summer of 2014 but following a return for rehabilitation on a knee injury, Conlan impressed manager Sean Dyche with his attitude and was picked as a trialist in a pre-season friendly against Accrington Stanley and rewarded another one-year deal in September, 2014.

Boston Bag Connor

Our beloved young super-sub and nearly man Conner Robinson has gone on loan to Lincolnshire rivals and Conference North Side Boston United on a four week loan.

Connors Stats here

Whitehawk  Kabba Coup 

Sahr Kabba has joined  Conference South contenders  Whitehawk FC in an attempt to get match fitness. The prolific goal machine should find his confidence during a six-week stint.  The shortest member of the six-foot soldiers squad by a foot (he is 5′ 4″ tall) STMI’s money is on a roaring return from a player  who got 10 Conference South goals for Havant last term.

Conference North Wrap – Stockport, Barrow & Yussuf On The Turn

Barrow FC , AFC Fylde & Stockport County win, Boston United, Chorley FC, Guiseley and North Ferriby slip up whilst  Oxford City striker  and ex-Imp sick-note Adi Yussuf bagged his third goal in a week as the Jekyll and Hyde academic side stormed to fifth in the table.  Hyde very much on the slide are bottom feeding again.

Thanks for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

 

Vanarama Conference logo.png

Their are currently two cocks crowing in the Conference North,  as  AFC Fylde and Barrow FC both returned to the summit.  Chorley were chewed 2-0 at Worcester with D’s all round for the former leaders as Deeney and Dunkley supplied the hot-sauce. Goal machines  Oxford City – who should be in the south and stay there – have now gatecrashed the final Northen play-off position to steal 5th,  having inflicted a second defeat on a Lincolnshire club in a week. The City aim to stay there it seems after an incredible bounce-back.  Eight days ago City let in 8, to AFC Fylde, before beating  Boston 7-2 away and yesterday enjoyed a comfortable win over 2-0 win over Gainsborough Trinity amidst the leaves and lecterns. Yussuf haired in for a 12th minute opener before Rodriguez netted at the death. Barrow, did not play midweek and had to come from one down before Pilkingtom pounced with Jason settling from the spot on 68. A Hannigan brace fired Fylde to glory at Gloucester, bottom four for now.

 

Vanarama Conference logo.png

The Green’s – not Queen’s –  speech did not have the pick-me -up Duke Dennis of Boston expected at Northern Giants Stockport County in front of a massive crowd of 2585.  That these incredibly loyal die-hard fans have suffered so much, both on and off the field, brings a tear to the eye. Hopefully Alan Lord can continue to turn things around amid the back stage shambles and get at least a play-off spot after the Bogie man guided the Hatters to second bottom before leaving this time last year but now three consecutive home wins and five goals in five from Kristian Dennis suggests their could be some light at the end of the tunnel.  Ryan opened things for the Hatters on 21 heading home a Lofthouse corner.  Pierginni headed home leveller on the verge of half-time.  Dennis bagged a real poachers brace bundling home a Duxbury centre and then stabbing home a Churchman cross-come-shot.  Pilgrims goal machine Southwell did get a consolation seven minutes from time.  The Pilgrims drop to seventh now five points off the pace.  Good job Guiseley drew at Hednesford 1-1 and money club North Ferriby endured a snore draw at Colwyn Bay

Newtons Neutron Bombs Primed

New Imps hero and former Stockport County, Chester City, Barrow FC  and AFC Telford left-back Sean Newton has stormed into enemy territory down the left flank so far this season including a match winning display against Forest Green Rovers. Our flying full-back also delivers payloads every bit as devastating as The Lancasters of bomber county did more than half a century ago.

Sean supplied the assists for both of Waide Fairhurst’s goal in the 2-1 win over Rovers but he has been a massive part of the team in every game this season. Newton bombs up and down the line throughout a game but  it is the accuracy of his nukes that ensure he bags half a dozen goals each season with almost treble that in assists. He even asked for an assist bonus when he negotiated his deal.

Another perhaps even more devastating Newton nuke is his hay-maker free-kicks. We saw it in action in the final minute against Boston when his 25 yarder settled the game with aplomb.  Hopefully he will get one within range today. His two assists so far this season are a just reward for his forward flair,but, it is his desire not to get beat that also inspires his team-mates. Newts looks beaten only to come back at his man and nick it at the expense of a throw, a corner, or even a canter down the flank to start a counter.

Newton epitomises the all-for-one and one-for-all spirit of  Team Lincoln with our flying fire-starter certainly stoking up the boiler as the Lincoln Loco toots its way into another station on the way to a play-off challenge.

Well played Sean I’d give you  9 out of 10 every game and you have certainly been close to adding to that Forest Green man-of-the-match award.

9 Danny Rowe

A CV that includes Manchester United, Preston North End, Fleetwood Town, Stockport County and Barrow FC.  One game in the 23 year old –hat trick on his debut – landmark signing is already an Imp No 9 to be proud of.  For Danny,  this deal is a chance to ram those promising youth comments down the throats of those who wanted him to develop gently and Simmo will give him every bit of help he can to follow in the footsteps of his other million pound plus finds. David Moyes never wanted him to leave…. well you know where he is… and any decent bid wouldbe considered.

Thank you for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs.

Yes Manchester United incredibly agreed up to £136,000 with Preston North End for Danny at just 12 years old .Fleetwood Town also paid good money for the 23 year-old who can play in an attacking midfield, wing or central striking role.  Before we get to his  bio, pour yourself a Pimms crack open a can and let us recount a craftsman, soon to be crowned a Lincolnshire poacher………….

It was an explosive opening from new Lincoln number 9 Danny Rowe as he opened his account just four minutes in.  Sheridan exchanged with Power before galloping down the right to whip over a low cross, Rowe raced on and cracked home from a dozen yards with the inside of his foot. Rowe is almost impossible to pick up and his fitness, despite the intense heat, made him harder contain as the game went on and both the goals to complete his heavenly hat-trick would come from distance. The first was a jaw-dropping hay-maker, full on the volley from 20 yards. The second saw him take a touch, look up and then curl a crisp cultured effort perfectly inside the post.

Manchester United & Preston £136k tug of war

Danny became the star of the Manchester United U13 side, scoring for fun in the FA Premier Academy League. Preston were not best pleased as they had developed him from the age of six only to lose him at 12, when United offered him a 4 year deal (lads can’t properly join the payroll until 16).  It went to tribunal with staggered payments agreed. The payments were to be £8,000 up front, £8,000 if Daniel signined a scholarship, £20,000 when he turned pro and £100,000 after 10 first-team appearances. Preston had argued that he would have been worth a million if he had gone through their system and then been sold. It might have been the best option for a lad who was swamped at United despite the teenage promise.

Kendal Town took him on and after an impressive first half to the season he was sold to Fleetwood with Nathan Pond coming on loan the other way.  Danny was sent out on loan to gain experience in the first half of the 2011/12 season, becoming the BSN player of the month in November, a month that saw him bang in 7 goals.  Danny got 12 for the bloods in his short stay and caught Stockport’s eye hammering in another 8 including a brace against the Imps when County trounced us 4-0 in April 2012.

Danny spent the first half of last season on loan at Stockport, a side in meltdown on and off the pitch, playing in a variety of positions, mainly from the bench to the frustration of the Edgeley faithful.  He got one goal and laid on 3 in just 612 sporadic minutes of football. Fleetwood then sent him on a half season loan to Barrow in January.  Danny was an inspiration at the relegation haunted Bluebirds who almost escaped the drop. He scored 4 and was credited with 3 assists, although his all round contribution led to far more (he played with namesake Danny Rowe at Barrow confusing the life out of the stattos).

Raid the bookies Imps. This lad will be the first player since Yeo (bow thrice) to bag 20 goals. He has it all. He has the touch and brain of Jamie Taylor. He is a playmaker, who can turn a game either as an attacking central midfielder or left-winger. At 6′ 1″ he can play as a target man or support striker.  His signing should worry Power, who has still to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Welcome Danny, with assist king Sean Newton also aboard Sincil salivates……………….

Manchester United incredibly agreed up to £136,000 with Preston North End for Danny at 12. Fleetwood Town also paid good money for the 23 year-old who spent last season on loan at Stockport County and Barrow. This is a landmark signing and shows the scope of Simmo’s ambition for Lincoln City as he can play in an attacking midfield, wing or central striking role.

Blackpool Winger Aims To Relegate Imps

Louis Almond has a point to prove against the Imps after David Holdsworth froze him out during his loan spell at the Imps. Louis made his début for The Tangerines as a second year scholar at Crewe in the League Cup and has enjoyed loan spells at Cheltenham, Barrow (3), Lincoln and now Hyde FC.

Have you signed our 3 up 3 down petition HERE yet? Thank you for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

The talented left winger, just 21, certainly has a point to prove after scoring 1 and delivering 2 assists in successive games for the Imps. But after just 5 bit-part appearances he was recalled by Blackpool, moving back to Barrow on loan for the rest of the season. The Tangerines clearly rate the lad, offering Louis a new improved contract with an option for a further year.

This season has seen him farmed out to Barrow until January, making 14 appearances (2 goals). Louis then joined Hyde, for a half-season youth loan in January, as part of his continuing development. In 12 appearances he has scored four and been credited with 3 assists, although his all-round contribution has been electric, providing top quality service for Jevons (15 goals) and Blinkhorn.

The left flank could yet play a big part in our season with Danny Loyd also set to start for the Lambs against  Woking. As for Louis, did he get the opportunity his promise deserved at the struggling Imps? He will certainly have the motivation and ability to be a danger on Saturday, against a City side notoriously short on pace.  Over to you Dan Gray and Tom Miller (the away player of the season!)

Luton 3 Imps 0 Stills Double 6 Clicks As Trapdoor Creaks For Imps

Luton responded well and showed a long overdue quality, that could yet save their players skins. Ditto The Imps and Barrow, for our sins,  after Nuneaton  and Alfreton wins. Mmmmm the sun is out, draw up a chair readers, Stockport Hatters included, time to reach for a bucket of Pims with extra extra Gin.

But to the game fellow football fans, to the game…….

In the face of a budget 5 times our own the Imps sought a scalp or two from the off.  Fofana tests Brill, who spills, but gathers at the second attempt. Andre Gray gets the better of two but Dan Gray clears his centre. A delicious drive from Taylor forces Brill to palm over the bar. Robinson clears Turnbull’s corner and the Hatters counter with a slick 4 man move, that sees Brown clear Robinson’s effort from the left channel.  Lawless and Robinson are dictating the middle with the latter getting through to drill just wide. Martin is also starting to get into things and sends a twenty yarder just over.

Farman is forced to punch a Lawless free-kick for a corner but Robinson fires the set-piece wide. The Hatters pressure is relentless. Farman saves a free-kick from martin and A Gray roasts Miller to cross for Robinson who shoots wide.  A smooth move from Lawless who also centres, sees the off-side flag saves us as an effort from Martin is thankfully ruled out.  The Imps get a second wind as a battle attrition in the middle stems the one-way flow. A D Gray long throw finds Turnbull but his half-chance cannons off a fellow Imp for a goal-kick.

Lawless sends a scintillating drive just wide. It is end to end now with Griffiths blocking a Turnbull effort at one end before sending a long-range effort wide at the other. Nat Brown then makes a magnificent last-ditch challenge to pick A Gray’s pocket just as he is about to pull the trigger, with Jordan heading the lose ball for a corner.  Lawless 42nd minute corner causes confusion allowing Martin, hovering just inside the area, to blast an unstoppable rising drive into the top left-hand corner. Just two minutes later the Hatters deservedly double their advantage.  Smith beats his man and threads a perfectly timed and judged through ball to Gray who pounces, rounding Farman to slots home from 15 yards.   The game had turned 3 minutes before the interval, to give Simmo an interesting half-time team talk.

Second half.

The Imps go for it and are unlucky not to get a penalty, presumably deemed ball to hand, but then you don’t expect to get those away.  The Hatters counter, but Shaw’s, optimistic, long-range effort is not that far wide. A Gray is caught off-side as the Imps leave gaps in order to salvage something.  A glorious Sheridan effort is parried by Brill who pounces to end the danger. On 56 Jordan is replaced by Power, thanks to an injury sustained after Robinson left his foot in. A Miller long throw is punched behind by Brill, in fine form this evening. A rather useful Turnbull corner is cleared by Smith, alert to the presence of the six foot soldiers.

On 66 the Luton ask and Tamworth task got an awful lot harder, from a defensive point of view. Lawless, who had slid in on Farman a moment or so before, clashed with Boyce in an off the ball altercation, that saw yellow for both men. Boyce’s tenth caution of the season will see him sit out the Tamworth and Hyde games, with a two game ban.  Oliver is brought on for Hobson in a last throw of the dice. Two terrific corners from Lawless force a clearance by Fofana and a confident claim by Farman. Good work by Sheridan sees the Imps win a corner as Griffiths deflects behind. Power takes, Boyce rises, but the slim Imps chance has gone as the towering effort goes wide.

Sods law – a rule of the turf – Luton immediately shut the door on any remote hopes of a way back in. On 73 a quick free-kick sees McNulty find Gray, his inch perfect pass into Martin’s path allows him to complete his brace, side-footing home from 6-yards, From the centre Sheridan has a 35-yard lucky dip that clears the bar. With Saturday in mind Simmo takes Taylor off, with Dali getting a chance to stretch his legs. A Nat Brown shot is saved by Brill for another City corner. Boyce heads Powers delivery over. Luton also appears to take their foot off the gas, sacrificing Shaw and Lawless for Wall and Rendell respectively.  That said Rendell is denied by Boyce at the expense of a corner and Ainge heads just wide. A decent Wall effort is saved by Farman before a Robinson effort goes wide to bring down the curtain on a very entertaining game. One that sees a much needed positive reaction for the Hatters and a vital pause for thought for the Imps.

Synopsis

The Imps find ourselves just one point from the drop zone after Nuneaton won 2-0 at Gateshead to rediscover their form. It could have been worse, Barrow lost 4-0 at Alfreton. That leaves then 4 points behind us with just 2 games to play and 6 points on offer. Stockport, who are now just the one point behind us with a game in hand, did not play, they get their Tuesday get out of jail opportunity next week against Gateshead. In our hearts, the April roadmap was always going to bring it down to the last two games. Tamworth at home on Saturday is just as vital as Aldershot was, because Hyde will be no mugs. They ground out a 1-0 win against a desperate Ebbsfleet last night to all but Sink the Fleet.
