Rowley College 0 Chawn Hill 1

We have lost just two games in the last nine and both of these to Chawn! They are having a good season and it’s easy to see why. They have maintained their competitive attitude (exemplified in the experience of Bedders, Curtis and JJ) and Steve has added the mobility and potential of young players like […]

Rowley College 2 St Matthews 2

Eventful game today with good quality shown on both sides. St Matthews proved league tables never lie: they are a really capable side who play fluent attacking football and are strong all over the pitch. They certainly had the better of it early doors and down the slope and it took a man of the […]

Wednesbury Baptist 3 Rowley College 3

We had an unexpected but very welcome visit from a Rowley legend this morning: Dale (Goal man) Smith shepherded us through the early years as Rowley’s first player-manager and then as a stalwart of our early years in the wmcfl before retiring finally (for the 4th time) in 2002 at the ripe old age of […]

City Church 2 Rowley College 3

This is my first proper report of 2017 coming at the end of our first game for six weeks and our first win since October. Though we have the third fewest league defeats we also have the third (equal) fewest wins (and more draws than either). City are always a real challenge and were unbeaten […]

Charlemont Star 3 St Matthews 3

Thanks Andy for sending in this match report. After a two week break we entertained third in the table St Matthews. St Matthews started the game the better forcing our keeper into a couple of saves to keep the score level. On 10 minutes Gary Lunt forced a corner which was taken by James Wood […]

Connect Sports 1 St Matthew’s Walsall 8

Thanks to Aaron Muffett from St Matt’s for this match report.   The lads returned to action today after the winter break and came away from a visit to Birmingham with an emphatic victory against Connect Sports. There were a couple of absentees from the squad including goalkeeper Andrew Smart who yesterday completed a move […]

Rowley College 2 Charlemont Star 2

In my absence (returning my lad to Manchester post Christmas and taking in Man Utd’s 4-0 demolition of Reading) my old mate Mike Ibrahim posted this report. We have now played 15 games in this frustrating season winning 4 of the first 5, losing 4 of the second 5 and drawing 4 of the last […]

Chawn Hill 2 Rowley College 1

No Christmas cheer for us today! We often seem to get Chawn in the Christmas fixture and a couple of years ago turned in our worst ever performance (though losing only narrowly 5-4!). Today was nowhere near as bad as that but inexplicably we lacked energy and purpose only a week after showing so much […]

Rowley College 2 Clarendon 2

And so we complete the first half of our league season with more score draws than either wins or defeats (five now and three in a row!). But this was not just another draw, it was a pulsating match which we grabbed by the scruff of the neck, ending Clarendon’s 100% record in the league […]

Rowley College 3 Wednesbury 3

Really good game of football today. I was really impressed with Wednesbury: a group of talented young footballers who have a good attitude about them and play an attractive style of football. We had been unsettled before the game by the loss of our keeper Lee Roberts who has played through considerable discomfort for most […]
