Wednesbury Baptist 2 Rowley College 2

Another good performance from us and finally we came away with something for our troubles against a very good Wednesbury side. We were missing our two young forwards and they were down to a bare eleven but there was plenty of quality on show. What Wednesbury have is a number of ‘proper’ footballers including two […]

Rowley 1 Life Central 5

If you thought I’d given up reporting defeats (or even reporting), think again: I just missed a couple of games because of work commitments. I came back to a cracking game and (sadly) the same results as last week but this week every player recognised that this was ‘never a 5-1’. Missing a number of […]

Rowley College 3 Monyhull 1

We were up against it this morning with Mark ‘sick and bad’ and our small squad stretched to its limits. Luckily we were able to prise Olly Staien from the bosom of his family and bring in Tess Rowe to give us something from the bench. It also meant we more significantly put our faith […]

Charlemont 0 Rowley 5

Results are the officially recorded memories of football matches but rarely tell the whole story. Last week we played pretty well, had a little misfortune and lost 2-0. This week we played a little better (i.e. very well) against similarly challenging opposition and won 5-0 and the misfortune was theirs. Charlemont welcomed us to Churchfields […]

Monyhull 2 Rowley 0

Welcome to the new season everyone. Be great to get more reports, win, lose or draw: it’s good for the soul! My first test comes today and on relatively unfamiliar ground: Rowley had only lost twice in eleven seasons on the first day! However what sadly hadn’t changed was the pattern of a close game […]

St Marys 3 Rowley College 1

St Marys had a strong team out a week before the cup final and we were still missing a few but what followed was a more than decent game to bring the curtain down on our 26th season. Thankfully our performance today was chalk to last week’s cheese and the returning Matty Williams asked at […]

Rowley College 0 Connect Sports 6

Days like these are hard to explain. Willis had it right when he admitted “I don’t know where that came from!”. Our last twelve games have offered not so much of a squeak between us and pretty much every team in the league; two narrow victories (3-2, 3-2), two narrow defeats (1-2, 0-1) and eight […]

Zion City 2 Rowley College 3

Lots of space for reflection and appreciation today as we finally made sure (irrespective of rumours of other ‘factors’) that at least four teams will finish below us. With only two defeats in twelve games, I don’t see avoiding relegation as a significant achievement (though it is important every season to sort this as quickly […]

Rowley College 3 Zion Athletic 3

I think we’ve now officially set a new record for draws, which was not our intention, though Joe’s plaintiff cry after the match was “We just don’t want to win!” This came after conceding two goals in the last ten minutes including the last kick (well, header actually) in a game which we dominated and […]

Rowley College 1 St Mary’s 1

And so this strange season continues with our seventh draw in the last ten games and I think a new wmcfl record of nine all told! Neither team was full strength today but it was a really competitive game with both teams intent on playing positively. We were massively boosted by having Lee our keeper […]
