Saturday 15 December - Greens embarrassed in Surrey

The first team put in a performance described on the twitter feed during the first half as feeble as they slipped to an embarrassing 5-1 defeat at Walton Casuals. The home side were full value for their win, with James Ewington leading the way with four goals.

Ewington opened the scoring in the 7th minute, doubled the lead in the 26th minute and completed his hat-trick in the 34th minute. The Greens gained a foothold back in the game on the stroke of half-time when Matty Harriott scored his first goal for the club.

The second half was goalless until the final three minutes. Ewington scored his fourth goal in the 87th minute before Reece Robins completed the scoring from the penalty spot three minutes later.

The Greens have now taken just eight points from their last nine games and will be very keen to turn things around next Saturday when they entertain Frome Town at SJP - kick off at 3:00pm.

Wednesday 12 December - Stat Attack Update - Quickest to 20 goals

Following Ricardo German's goalscoring exploits so far this season, we've taken a look at which players have been quickest to 20 goals since the club joined the Isthmian League in 1963.

There may be other players in the Athenian League era who reached the mark quicker, but due to incomplete records we can't be certain.

Ricardo is the 11th player to have reached the 20 goal mark by December. Ricardo achieved this in his 25th appearance this season - exactly the same number as Niko Muir last season, who of course went on to score 40 goals and is now plying his trade at Hartlepool United.

The quickest in terms of date is David Hyde, who reached the 20 goal mark on 31st October 1964 in his 21st game of the campaign, whilst a season earlier, Gerry O'Rourke reached the mark in his 19th game, but later in the season on 16th November 1963.

The full list of the ten players is below - in order of when they reached the 20 goal mark by date

31st October - David Hyde (1964-65 - 21 appearances)

5th November - Iain Dowie (1988-89 - 22 appearances)

16th November - Gerry O'Rourke (1963-64 - 19 appearances)

21st November - Niko Muir (2017-18 - 25 appearances)

5th December - Paul Whitmarsh (1998-99 - 24 appearances)

9th December - Tony Bass (1972-73 - 28 appearances)

11th December - Jefferson Louis (2013-14 - 26 appearances)

11th December - Ricardo German (2018-19 - 25 appearances)

21st December - Bobby Wilson (1968-69 - 25 appearances)

25th December - Laurie Churchill (1965-66 - 24 appearances)

27th December - Leon Smith (2014-15 - 35 appearances)

Ricardo has some way to go to score the most goals in a season - that record is held by David Hyde, who scored 59 goals in the 1964-65 season.

Saturday 08 December - Greens beaten by Dragons

The first team were beaten 2-1 at Basingstoke Town this afternoon but remain in fourth place in the league table.

The Hampshire side took the lead in the 17th minute through Dan Bayliss, and doubled the lead in the 20th minute. The Greens pulled a goal back in controversial circumstances when Ricardo German converted a spot kick. However, the spot kick was awarded when the home keeper appeared to make a superb stop at the feet of German, but the referee ruled that there had been a foul and awarded the penalty.

The second half was a goalless affair and Basingstoke were able to hold on for all three points.

Next up is a home game against Metropolitan Police on Tuesday evening, kick off 7:45pm at SJP.

Tuesday 04 December - Greens in friendly win last night

Last night's friendly against Potters Bar Town ended in a 3-1 win for the Greens. Jimmy Gray fielded a mixed side of squad players, under 23's and a couple of trialists. The only goal of the first half was scored by Potters Bar when Sandro Costa found the back of the net.

One of the trialists equalised early in the second half, before a Potters Bar trialist was sent off for comments made to the referee. Shaun Lucien put the Greens ahead with a stunning strike, and Cheyce Grant completed the scoring.

The Potters Bar squad fielded former Hendon players Lee O'Leary, Keagan Cole, Lewis Hobbs (who remains dual-registered with us) and Aaron Morgan in their squad. They are now managed by Scott Cousins and O'Leary.

The full line ups for both sides can be found on the match report page and the website team would like to thank Lee Cousins for providing all the information to us.
