Highlights from our abandoned HPL derby game at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground on Tuesday evening.
Fog handed Shriv a "get out of jail free" card when visibility became impossible with 15 minutes of the match remaining as their hosts edged towards their first victory over Shrivenham since moving to their current home.
Shrivenham failed to get out of the starting blocks at Barrington Park on a cold Saturday afternoon as they fell to their second defeat in as many games.
The situation was made even worse when defender Tim Cook saw red shortly before the interval and despite stepping up their work rate in the second half, it was the visitors who took the points back to Wiltshire with a comfortable 5-1 win.
Shriv concluded their 2021 with an impressive derby victory over neighbours Fairford.
A freezing cold and very windy day combined with no fewer than eight First XI players being unavailable against the leagues second highest goal scorers to make for a very difficult day, but up stepped players from the Development side, to gain some big game experience and despite the score, the boys did the club proud.
Shrivvy dropped three points off the pace in an entertaining game at Barrington Park on Wednesday evening [17.11.21].
Despite having the chances to win it, Goring were far more clinical in front of the net and worthy of their win come the final whistle.
Shrivenham ended a run of four games without a win at Barrington Park on Saturday, coming back from two goals down to level things at 2-2 before Lewis Leigh-Gilchrist saw red for something he said about the linesman in his first game for the Glass.
A tough second eventually saw the home side break through, but Glass could have grabbed a point back with the final kick of the game - but the pipes came to the rescue to save the home side.
Shriv Vets headed in to a two-week break with a comfortable W which kept them in touch with Faringdon Town Vets (2nd on 9 points) and current leaders Marcham Vets (1st on 10 points) - securing their position in 3rd with 7 points with all three teams having played 4 games.
A two-game series against Marcham is up next!
Shrivenham hosted high-flying Longlevens at Barrington Park on a wet Tuesday evening, and there could be no complaints about their two goal lead heading in to the break after a lively first forty-five.
A workman like second period ensured they took all three points as their visitors upped their work rate, with both sides finding it difficult to add to the score.
Shrivvy Youth put in another workman like performance in the first, but a lack of fitness began to tell the tale after the interval against another well established side from the Kingsdown Lions set up who ended the tie as worthy winners.
Shriv did get the ball in to the back of the net courtesy of a penalty kick - but it was re-ordered after home side players ignored the referee's clear instruction to stay outside of the box and the retake thundered on to the pipes and off to safety.
Another good learning experience for the side and the improvements continue.
A point each was likely a fair reflection as Shrivenham Development hosted their Wantage Town counterparts at Barrington Park on Saturday afternoon.
Shrivenham's Veterans rounded off their pre-season with a comfortable score against Abington Town at Barrington Park on Wednesday evening [01.09.21] and focus now turns to their opening league game.
Our Development side had a final run out [18.08.21] ahead of their HL2S campaign getting underway this Saturday.
A brace each for Tyger Hall and Kai Richardson should have been enough to secure the game, having gone two goals behind in the first half, but Vale stuck with it and pulled two back to end the evening all square.
Another entertaining game at Barrington Park on Tuesday evening [17.08.21] saw the Bobcats return to Bradford with the three points courtesy of a second half penalty, but there were countless chances missed by both sides in a game that could have gone either way, but was well deserved by the visitors.
Shrivvy hosted fellow North Wilts Youth Leaguers Northside at Barrington Park on Sunday morning [08.08.21], and were given a lesson in the need to stay focussed for the entire game.
A semi-decent opening 25 minutes was undone with some sloppy work, with Monty the player of the game with some great keeping heroics to keep the score below double figures.
