    UPCOMING MATCHES PREVIEW It does not get any easier for St Neots Town......   Their recent improvement has been reflected in far more impressive performances against sides above them in the table and have resulted in a deserved away draw at Biggleswade and two narrow single goal home defeats by Daventry and Aylesbury – matches they could well have won.  The net result of these improvements has yielded just one point from their last nine, and they have seen the gap in the table between themselves and the Clubs above them increase to five points. And so on to Saturday and a trip to Berkhamsted who just happen to be the current league leaders.   Promoted to Step Four in the Southern League from the Spartan South Midlands League in 2018 they finished sixth in their first season at that level, just three points shy of a play-off place.   However, they looked well placed to improve on that this season having won nine and drawn three of their twelve completed league matches this season and have only conceded six league goals. Marc Abbott’s team will go there looking for only their second league victory of the season but it may be a case of damage limitation given the hosts record.   John Walker

SOUTHERN LEAGUE DIVISION ONE CENTRAL Welwyn Garden City        7            St Neots Town        1        It was hardly ideal preparation for an important away midweek match.   Most of St Neots’ players and officials (plus the Referee and his Assistants) were held up on the A1(M) because of a serious accident, for more than an hour and three quarters in stationary traffic on the way to the match.   As a result, the start was delayed, and the match eventually kicked off at 8.30 pm.    Not the perfect start for St Neots three recent additions to the squad all who made their debut at Welwyn.   The host side flying high at present with only one defeat in eight league starts, plus two victories over Premier Division teams in the League Cup, proved just two good for St Neots, and inflicted on them their heaviest ever Southern League defeat, and their worst league reversal for 13 years.   It must have been a salutary experience for the three newcomers to the side, forwards Alan Musoke from Amersham Town and Daniel Olusemo from Royston Town,  and midfielder Mikey Davis from Cambridge City, who had little opportunity to show their potential.   They replaced Prince Mutswunguma, Sam Bennett, Sam Gomarsall and Stevan Shaw in the starting line-up with Jake Noble recalled to the side.   There are now two further away trips to Thame (Saturday) and Biggleswade FC (Wednesday) to regroup and try to salvage some pride.   St Neots looked good enough in the very early stages, but they were rocked back on their heels when Welwyn went ahead after seven minutes in their first attack in which they won a corner from which home skipper Dave Keenleyside volleyed into the net.   That seemed to set a pattern for the first half with Callum Stead rampant for Welwyn on the right and Elliot Bailey and Eusebio Da Silva squandering promising openings.   St Neots one clear chance was a breakaway attack in which the home keeper came 30 yards from his line to head clear and although James Philp saved well from Stead the pressure was growing.   After 28 minutes the home side doubled their advantage when from a Lee Close free kick, Da Silva knocked the ball down to the unmarked Elliot Bailey to convert and four minutes later the same Welwyn player scored again after more unselfish play from Da Silva.   St Neots look shell-shocked and having to defend in numbers on a permanent basis but there was more punishment to come four minutes before half time when Dave Keenleyside unleashed a powerful shot from 35 yards that seemed to mesmerise the St Neots goalkeeper and establish his side with a game-winning 4-0 lead. St Neots needed to dig deep to find a device to stop the non-stop attacking from the home side but any plan to do this was further damaged just three minutes after the restart when Elliot Bailey completed a twenty minutes hat trick to make it 5-0 before making way to a substitute to deserved rapturous home applause.   St Neots also sent on two substitutes and seemed to be able to stem the flow for around twenty minutes during which time full back Jake Kerins pulled back a consolation goal – his second from outside the area this season.   However, towards the end the home side began to assert themselves again as St Neots seemed to tire, and eleven minutes from time Callum Stead produced Welwyn’s sixth goal with a solo effort.   Three minutes later Kerins almost scored a second goal for the visitors – another lengthy effort that beat the home keeper but rebounded from the crossbar.   Predictably Welwyn had the last word as substitute Tony Cathline completed the scoring through a weary St Neots defence. St Neots: Philp, Kerins, Smith, Noble, Boxer, Goode, Bradley, Watkins, Musoke, Alusemo, Davies   Subs:  Sutton (for Noble 54 mins), Shaw (for Boxer 54 mins), Mutswunguma (for Davies  73 mins), Connor and Bennett. Cards:  none Goals:  Kerins (65 mins)   Welwyn:  Tavares, Bradshaw,  Alomenu, Walklin, Rolfe, Close, Stead, Ironton, Da Silva, Keenleyside, Bailey Subs:  Ebengo (for Da Silva 61 mins), Cathline (for Bailey 61 mins), Payne (for Stead 69 mins), Mensah and Smaldone. Cards:  none Goals:  Bailey 3 (28, 32 and 48 mins), Keenleyside 2 (5 & 41 mins), Stead  (68 mins) and Cathline (77 mins)   Referee:  Ryan Dix (Milton Keynes) Attendance:       125   John Walker

UPCOMING MATCHES PREVIEW There is no rest for St Neots as the season rolls on.   Following their FA Trophy defeat at Carlton last Saturday they travel to Yaxley on Tuesday for their first-round engagement in the Southern League Challenge Cup.   St Neots reached this stage of the competition with an away victory in their delayed Preliminary Round tie at Kempston Rovers, whilst Yaxley enjoyed the luxury of a bye to enter the competition at this stage.   This will be St Neots’ second trip to Yaxley this season because they were there almost two months ago in their pre-season Huntingdonshire Premier Cup group match which finished in a 2-2 draw.   The resultant penalty shoot-out saw victory for the home side with both teams fielding largely experimental sides.   In fact, seven of the St Neots starting line-up in that match have not yet featured in a Southern League match.   Last season St Neots won their Preliminary Round tie beating Bedford Town in a home penalty shot out before going to Lowestoft Town in the First Round and losing 3-1 and it is now three seasons since they featured in Round Two of the competition when they were beaten away at Aylesbury. Then on Saturday, it is back to the league programme and a visit from Barton Rovers.   The two sides last met in the 2011/12 season when St Neots enjoyed their debut season at Step Four after winning promotion from the UCL.    That match saw goals from Stefan Moore (2), Ben Mackey (2) and Dan Jacob lead St Neots to a 5-3 victory and that completed a league double for the side had won 1-0 at Barton earlier in the season with Lewis Webb the St Neots marksman.   Barton are currently ninth in the league table – seven points behind league leaders AFC Dunstable with their only away league victory coming at Kempston and last Saturday they progressed in the FA Trophy at Hullbridge Sports with an impressive 4-2 away victory.   John Walker

UPCOMING MATCH PREVIEW This week afforded St Neots’ Manager Marc Abbott and his coaching staff a breathing space as the first free midweek of the season.   He and his off-the-field team will be taking a close look at the team’s defensive organisation after conceding five goals in each of its first three home league matches this season.   It is ironic than in the early stages of the season the main concern seemed to be around goal scoring but now it is the other end of the field that is coming under scrutiny.   So, a week of planning is in view prior to the visit to Carlton Town in the preliminary round of the FA Trophy.   Carlton are based in Nottingham and have had a very impressive start to the season with six wins in their first seven league games although they did draw at home last Saturday with Sheffield FC.   However, they still top the South East Division of the Northern Premier League so will be extremely challenging opponents for St Neots next Saturday.   St Neots record in the Trophy is not very impressive reaching no further than the second qualifying round in the past four seasons.   In fact, the only time they got to the third qualifying round was in 2014/15 when they reached that round but lost in a replay at Sudbury.   Their full record in 15 seasons in the competition since 1969 is that they have never reached the competition proper having struggled in time in the qualifying rounds. Up to now and the end of September, St Neots will have completed fifteen competitive matches this season (including the Premier Cup group matches) with only six of those in their league programme. However, a win at Carlton could prolong the number of Cup matches and earn them a sponsorship award. John Walker

UPCOMING MATCHES PREVIEW Tomorrow (Tuesday) sees St Neots back in action in the delayed League Cup Preliminary Round at Kempston Rovers.   With the rearrangement delayed by the FA Cup replay the two contestants already know that victory would afford them a First-Round tie in two weeks’ time (October 1st) at Yaxley.   The first meeting between the two for nine years, took place at Kempston in the League on Bank Holiday Monday and resulted in St Neots’ only league victory so far this season so a repeat performance would be the perfect outcome.   St Neots record in the League Cup is somewhat patchy but in their nine seasons in the Southern League they have only appeared in the Preliminary Round twice – the other time being last season when they beat Bedford Town at home in a dramatic penalty shoot-out. Then on Saturday the team are back at the Premier Plus Stadium for only their second league match in their last six starts with a first ever visit from AFC Dunstable.   The visitors ground share with Dunstable Town and have made a stunning start to the season with four victories in their first five matches.    Their one defeat came against unbeaten Corby Town (at Corby) at the end of last month.   The two teams have never met but Dunstable do have former St Neots players Ryan and Nathan Frater, Martell Powell and Drew Roberts on their books.   John Walker

UPCOMING MATCHES PREVIEW After what seems a remarkably short but busy start to the season the new look St Neots Town kick off their season at Step Four in a new Division of the Southern League – Division One Central. They begin with an away trip to Bedworth United who were one of the two other sides relegated with St Neots from the Premier Division at the end of last season. Bedworth could be dubbed the ‘yo-yo’ side for they have been relegated from and promoted back to Step Three with regularity. Then on Tuesday the team returns home to host their first match at Step Four since 2011/12 with their first opponents being County colleagues Yaxley. Last weekend saw the extra-preliminary Round of the FA Cup so our clubs involved in the league starts this weekend now know who they will be facing in their FA Cup Preliminary Round debut next weekend. We have a short trip through the local villages to face Godmanchester Rovers, Yaxley has to visit newly promoted Biggleswade FC and Bedworth are pitted at home against the other Southern League Central relegated side Halesowen Town. However, the focus is now on the start of the new league season and many of Marc Abbott’s side will face new opposition at the beginning of their journey in Step Four with the club.   John Walker
