A much better attitude to.

Ashridge 4-7 Calcot Hawks.

Calcot finished off there league campaign with a win.
Calcot started brightly and took the lead when a trademark Lewis Small throw in caught Ashridge out and set Jack Page-Smith away on goal who finished one on one with the keeper.

Jack Page-Smith made it 2-0 with a finish from just inside the penalty area. Ashridge pulled one back to make it 2-1 but Jack Page-Smith quickly made it a Hat trick and 3-1 to take control again. The score then became 4-1 after a good tackle from Owen Hancock stopped an Ashridge attack. Owen Hancock then played Jack Page-Smith through who out paced the defender to score his 4th.

Thomas Shepherd made it 5-1 with a powerful effort just before the half time whistle.

Despite the big lead at half time Calcot did need to work hard to keep this lead, and a fine save one on one with the Ashridge striker from Charlie Holloway and a clearance off the line from Dylan Fletcher made sure we kept our lead at the break.

Ashridge started quickly in the 2nd half and never gave up and got there reward when they pulled a goal back to make it 5-2.

Jack Page-Smith scored his 5th and Calcots 6th when Thomas Shepherd looked up and played a lovely threw ball, Jack Page-Smith again out pacing the defenders to go throw one-on-one to score to make it 6-2.

Ashridge pulled another back to make it 6-3 but some fine work on the right wing by Luke Jones who beat 2 defenders to then play a pass across the box which was met by Thomas Shepherd at the back post to score his 2nd.

Ashridge made the scores 7-4 late on and nearly scored a 5th only to see Thomas Shepherd clear there effort off the line at the back post following a header from a corner.

Overall a good performance and some good spells of passing, especially in the 1st half. The lads did well on what was a big pitch and it was nice to be able to give some of the lads a rest during this game as we had a full squad to pick from. This win see's us finish 4th in the league.

Now to start getting fit ready for all our tournaments. Dates will be released shortly.

Calcot Hawks 2-3 Bracknell.

Calcot took the lead against 2nd placed Bracknell when Dylan Fletcher's cross field pass was latched onto by Jack Page-Smith who nut megged the defender and fired in off the post from outside the area. It was a fine finish and well deserved as we started brightly.

Bracknell equalised from a throw in that I thought should of gone our way but the Bracknell linesman failed to spot it so the ref had to give Bracknell the throw. From this throw in Bracknell won a free kick outside our area and scored with a header from close range that went unchallenged making the scores 1-1 at Half Time.

Bracknell took the lead when another long ball was met by the left winger who crossed the ball after our defender slipped. The ball bobbled around in the box until eventually a Bracknell player hit the ball over his head which ended up in the net.

Bracknell made it 3-1 when the Bracknell striker latched onto another long ball and headed into the net.

Jack Page-Smith made it 3-2 by beating the offside trap and running through one on one and smashing the ball home. The assist from Kane Billing who found the run of Jack perfectly.

Calcot could of made it 3-3 but the Bracknell keeper made a decent save.

This was always going to be a tough game made even tougher by the fact we had 9 players and had to put up with constant moaning/shouting at the ref, at myself and my players from not everyone but certain people on the opposition touchline. Had we of had our full squad available then I'm sure it may of been a different outcome but we did the best we could with what we had available so every single one of our players can be proud that they competed for the whole match. We played the better football, worked well and behaved in a decent manner and that sometimes is all I can ask for from our team.

Our last league game see's us play this Saturday against Ashridge away at St Crispins School, London Road, Wokingham. 9am Kick Off.

Burghfield 2-3 Calcot Hawks.

Calcot completed a 5 day double over Burghfield in difficult conditions and without having the luxury of any subs.

It was a hard game against a team who in the 2 games we have played them worked hard and never give up. This paid off for Burghfield as they took the lead.

Jack Page-Smith made the score's level just before the break when he went through one on one with the keeper and calmly finished with a well placed shot.

Calcot found it difficult in the 1st half to deal with the strong winds and this led to Burghfield taking the lead shortly before half time.

Despite not having any subs, tactical moves were made at half time. Lewis Small going to centre back, Dylan Rootham moving to Left Back and Owen Hancock moving to a midfield 3 with Kane Billing and Dylan Fletcher.

The 2nd half started off quite slowly for us and it was quite an equal game at this point, but the turning point came when a through ball was pounced upon by Jack Page-Smith who had to battle hard with 2 defenders to get in front of them to set himself free with the goal keeper, again finished off nicely to make the scores equal.

Burghfield had a couple of good shots on goal which were brilliantly saved by Charlie Holloway. The first save especially good as he had to change direction as the shot took a deflection. Calcot grew in confidence towards the end and this seemed to lift the team as they pushed for a winner which came though Jack Page-Smith who again went through and this time finished with the out side of his foot to seal his Hat trick and the win for Calcot.

This was a good team performance and the boys did well to get themselves back into the game, especially when we were 2-1 down at half time. There was a good attitude from all the boys and several off them taking one for the team and playing in positions they don't usually play in.

Lewis Small had a great game in defence, looked calm on the ball and organised the defence well. Owen Hancock played well in midfield hassling the opposition which forced errors, Kane Billing played some nice passes and made some important tackles but man of the match this week has to go to Jack Page-Smith who was a constant threat and worked hard all game.

Well done Boys. We never give up.

Calcot Hawks 2-1 Burrghfield.

Calcot got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory, but were made to work hard against a spirited and well organised Burghfield team.

Calcot took the lead through Luke Jones who pounced on a rebound and fired in from the edge of the box.

Jack Page-Smith had a couple of opportunities to increase the score before the break but was denied by some good goal keeping from the Burghfield keeper who went on to have a great match for his team.

Calcot did eventually make it 2-0 shortly after the break when Jack Page-Smith again broke down the right side, drew the keeper out and this time squaring the ball to Thomas Shepherd who made no mistake with a powerful shot.

Thomas Shepherd nearly made it 3-0 with a superb free kick which seemed to be going top corner but yet again the Burghfield keeper made a great save.

Lewis Small and Kane Billing had good games in central midfield. I was pleased with Lewis Small's decision making, choosing to sit towards the end of the game rather than keep attacking. This gave the defence that little extra protection which was needed and that's been missing lately as Burghfield continued to attack. Burghfield did eventually pull one back but it was to little to late as the whistle blew for full time on the kick off.

There were also good games for Owen Hancock who made several good clearance's and Thomas Shepherd who for me wins my vote for man of the match. He desperately wanted to start this match and he did, and he repaid us with a good performance.

Calcot's next match is Sunday at James Lane, Burghfield. Midday Kick Off against Burghfield in what is bound to be another tough match. :-)

30/03/2014

We have a match this Wednesday evening against Burghfield.
Its a 5:50pm meet at Caclot rec please.
If anybody is available to help with the goals that will be appreciated.
We also have a game on Sunday against Burghfield which is away at James Lane, Burghfield. 12:00noon Kick Off.
Please let me know if you can't make either game.

Calcot Hawks 0-1 Finchampstead.

This was one of those days that we could of played all day and wouldn't of scored. Defensively we looked ok but we got caught out when a Finchampstead shot came back of the post and the rebound got put in from close range.

There wasn't many chances for either team really as both teams seem to cancel each other out.

There were good games for Kane Billing who passed the ball neatly and Dylan Fletcher who worked hard.

Unfortunately we couldn't brake through the Finchampstead defence despite having some good spells with the ball.

One thing we will be looking to improve on now we are back outside is our fitness. Going forward we looked good but getting back we are leaving our defence a little exposed, so hopefully soon we can do 2 training sessions a week.

Calcot will be looking to put things right this Wednesday against Burghfield.

Hi all.
For those of you that are interested in watching the under 21's game between Reading and Man Utd.
A few of us are already going but if anyone else fancies it then we're meeting outside the mega store at 6:40pm. Thought that way we can all go in together so the lads can all sit together and have a bit of team bonding :-)

Calcot Hawks 2-4 Taplow Utd.

Calcot started brightly against a team sitting pretty at the top of the league and boasting a goal difference of +56 goals going into this game.

Calcot had the chance to take the lead early on when a superb Jack Page-Smith free kick was tipped onto the cross bar by the Taplow Utd keeper.

Taplow took the lead when a through ball was poked home from close range, shortly after another Jack Page-Smith free kick whistled past the post. Taplow made it 2-0 shortly before the break.

Calcot came out the 2nd half as determined as always and knew the next goal was massive. Unfortunately it was Taplow who got it through there leading scoring, who has lost count of how many goals he has scored this season lol (quite a lot I reckon).

Calcot didn't drop there heads which I was very proud off especially at a stage in the game when a lot of teams would of gave up. There hard work paid off when a corner fell at the feet of Kane Billing who's shot was blocked by the defender but Luke Jones was alert and reacted quickly to fire high into the net to make it 3-1.

Taplow then made it 4-1 catching Calcot on the break putting in a rebound from close range after a great save from Charlie Holloway.

Calcot then went on the attack and made it 4-2 when some good work from Luke Jones down the left set Jack Page-Smith up with a great cross goal pass who made no mistake at the back post.

Charlie Holloway had a good game in goal for the Hawks making some good saves and Lewis Small and Dylan Fletcher linked up well down the right.

This was a good test for Calcot against a team when we last played them ended up beating us 5-0 and controlled the game quite easily. We might not of won this game but I was happy and proud that every player gave all that they could, we competed against the best team in the league, hassled them and showed spells of decent passing football which caused them a few problems. Well done lads.

Our next match see's us up against Finchampstead in what is probably going to be the battle for 3rd.

20/03/2014

Our game this weekend is at home to top of the league Taplow Utd.
Numbers are a little low already so if you can't make it please let me know asap.

Thanks
Richard.

Swallowfield 2-3 Calcot Hawks.

Swallowfield took the lead halfway through the 1st half with a header at the back post. They doubled their lead through a long ball that was despatched neatly past the out stretched arm of Charlie Holloway.

At this point in the game Calcot had produced a few good chances, one falling for Jack Page-Smith from a well weighted pass from Kane Billing. Calcot were not out of this match and a corner from Jack Page-Smith was met by Jordan Shepherd who headed in from 5 yards out to make the scores 2-1 at the break.

Calcot went into the 2nd half playing a deeper line to deal with Swallowfield's constant long ball (hoofing) and it paid off as they didn't concede anymore goals in the 2nd half.

Calcot set out in the 2nd half to continue to try and play football and keep the ball.

Jack Page-Smith made the scores level with a neat finish from the edge of the box after being put through on goal with a lovely defence splitting pass from Thomas Shepherd.

Colby Holder did well to get a shot in on goal from close range which was well blocked from the Swallowfield defender but from the resulting corner Jordan Shepherd bagged a brace and the winner :-) with another fine header from another Jack Page-Smith corner.

Luke Jones had a good game for the Hawks working hard and battling down the wings going forwards and defensively.

The attitude from the players was superb this week from the warm up right through to the final whistle. They never gave up and continued to play and work hard to get back into the game. A lot of teams could of folded at 2-0 down but we didn't and like always the hard work in the 2nd half paid off as we made it 3 wins on the trot.

I must mention the ref was superb and was in total control at all times and the Swallowfield goal keeper had a good game.

Calcots next game is against top of the league Taplow Utd. There a good side and pass the ball well so it will be difficult, but they are a nice bunch.

Well done boys. I was very happy with this result. We all were.

13/03/2014

Hi Guys.
There is a game this weekend away to Swallowfield and is a 10:30am kick off, so 10am meet please. I'll text you all the address tomorrow.

Calcot Hawks 6-0 Ascot Utd Athletic.

Calcot took the lead in the 1st half through Jack Page-Smith when Connor Hancock's saved shot feel at the feet of the in form striker who made no mistake from close range.

In all honesty it wasn't the best half we've ever played and the players knew this at half time and improved greatly after the break.

Calcot made it 2-0 when a Jack Page-Smith corner dropped at the feet of the Ascot defender who's clearance shot into his own net.

Jack Page-Smith made it 3-0 when he chased down the defender and out muscled him to then round the keeper to put it into an empty net.

Colby Holder then scored the 4th with a powerful strike that flew into the top corner. A great one two between Luke Jones and Kane Billing setting up the goal.

Jack Page-Smith then made it 5-0 when a delightful pass from Dylan Fletcher which pretty much landed on Jack's foot who took a touch and tucked it away in the corner with the outside of his foot making it 2 hat tricks in 2 games.

Luke Jones finished off the scoring with a powerful low drive from the edge of the penalty area after being put through by Connor Hancock.

Scoring the goals we scored was great but I was particularly impressed with the defence who didn't have it easy and worked hard to keep a clean sheet.

Charlie Holloway had a good game in goal. His starting possession was superb often playing as a 2nd sweeper and his distribution lead to many of our attacks (Theale Green must have a good keeper to keep this lad out the team)

Dylan Rootham had a good game filling in at left back and also did well with his distribution.

Jack Chandler played well at right back and put some key tackles in to keep Ascot away.

Owen Hancock won the match of the match. Winning most his headers, organising the defence and making several blocks.

This was a good result and the last 2 wins will give us confidence going into the next 3 games which will be a lot tougher against 3 well organised teams.

Well done to Thomas and Jordan Shepherd who are through to the Regional Schools Final at Bristol in 2 weeks time.

Calcot's next match is Saturday away to Swallowfield.
