  1. FT: Plymouth Parkway 5 (Farkins 48, Smith 53, 70, Carter 68, Annear 79) Buckland Athletic 1 (Groves 61) A bumper Good Friday crowd of 421 arrived at a positively tropical Bolitho Park, the majority hoping for a Parkway win to see them maintain their title challenge in what was their final home game of the season. On an immaculate playing surface befitting the first game of the season rather than the last, Parkway made 3 changes from last Saturday's dour victory at Odd Down (Bath). With midfield trio Shane Krac, Jamie Lowry and Les Afful all unavailable, Aaron Bentley returned from injury to central defence, Christian Pople to his customary midfield holding role and normal central defender Nick Milton in an unaccustomed central midfield position for him. The game got off to a cagey start with Parkway the first to show with Ryan Lane being caught narrowly offside after a fine through ball from Rob Farkins. Parkway, now looking the sharper and dangerous on both flanks, created the first chance after good work between Adam Carter and Mike Smith ended with Lane heading wide when well placed. With Parkway now dominating possession and forcing Buckland on to the defensive, Pople, still looking for his elusive first goal of the season, shot wide on 12 minutes. Parkway continued to apply pressure but were unable to create any clear cut chances with their final ball lacking quality and Buckland defending without too many alarms. Playing on the break Buckland had their first effort on 28 minutes with Ryan Bush and Jordan Ewing combing well with Ewing shooting wildly over from around 15 yards when in the clear. With Pople and Milton shoring up midfield and constantly breaking up play, Buckland were unable to create much forward momentum with Ewing being booked on 34 minutes for a series of persistent infringements. Despite Lane, Smith and the lively Teigan Rosenquest seeing plenty of the ball in wide areas, Buckland continued to compete and defend well with Parkway lacking the necessary creativity to create many openings. A pretty, nervy, ordinary half with neither keeper being unduly tested and most of the action confined to the congested midfield area with few chances being created. Jordan Trott, who had been feeling unwell, was replaced at half time by a still not fully fit Mikey Williams with Lane dropping into left back and Williams slotting into his usual midfield role. Williams almost made an immediate impact on 47 minutes when a trademark mazy run into the box saw his curling left foot shot being superbly pushed behind for a corner by Kenny Griffiths at full stretch. From the resultant corner Parkway took the lead. With Buckland unable to fully clear, the ball dropped to Farkins on the right some 15 yards out who drilled a low shot on target through a crowd of legs to the far post where the predatory poacher Carter claimed the final touch, as good strikers always do! Subsequent video evidence, not VAR, has credited Farkins with the goal. (I'll let those two argue the toss over that)! Parkway were now a completely different outfit than in the first half showing more creativity and penetration and they doubled their lead on 53 minutes. Good work on the right between Rosenquest, Williams and Sam Hillson saw a superb cross from Hillson reach Smith who climbed highest to power home an unstoppable header into the top corner from around 10 yards. Buckland continued to play on the break and arguably against the run of play pulled a goal back on 61 minutes with their first effort on target. A free kick around 25 yards out was cleverly bent low around the wall by Richard Groves beating a despairing Kyle Moore at his near post. Parkway regrouped, picked up the tempo again and restored their two goal lead on 68 minutes. A flowing link up move between Carter, Williams and Hillson ended with Carter showing good strength to hold off his marker in a central position and prod home from around 6 yards. With Rosenquest continuing to look to probe an opening and Pople and Milton continuing to work hard in midfield, Parkway increased their lead on 70 minutes. Good link up play between Williams and Carter on the right saw Carter show neat footwork and control close to the touch line and send a pinpoint cross to Smith who also showed good control by turning and firing home from around 12 yards. Jordan Annear replaced the impressive Carter on 73 minutes with Lloyd Gardner being booked for an unnecessary and nasty challenge on Pople shortly after. With Buckland rarely threatening, the Parkway defence looked solid and comfortable with Moore a relative spectator as Parkway went further ahead on 79 minutes. Excellent link up play between Williams and the pacy Annear saw the latter work himself some space, turn sharply and fire home unerringly into the bottom corner from around 12 yards. A rare Buckland break forward saw a Chris McPhee shot from distance comfortably held by Moore. Having been on the pitch for around only 37 minutes and arguably changed the course of the game, the substitute was then substituted with Stewart Yetton replacing the influential Williams. In a rare Buckland attack, Jamie Richards saw a long range strike pushed away for a corner by Moore on 83 minutes. With Buckland heads visibly dropping, Parkway continued to surge forward and the final action saw Griffiths smother a low cross from Yetton after a neat link up play with the lively Annear. After a fairly even, uninspiring first half with Parkway unable to create too much or show the necessary creativity, the half time substitution completely changed the game with Parkway dominating proceedings and well worthy of their victory. Clinical finishing, creative and tenacious in midfield and solid and comfortable in defence resulted in a complete second half performance. With Willand Rovers and Bitton winning 5-1 and 4-2 respectively it's as you were at the top with Parkway (89) still a point ahead of Willand and Bitton with Willand still having a game in hand. Parkway now travel to Shepton Mallet on Monday before going to Chipping Sodbury, next Saturday for their final league game with all 3 teams still in the mix. By a strange twist of fate, Chipping Sodbury were the last team to defeat Parkway on 5 January prior to their 22 match unbeaten run. With Willand's game in hand at home to Bridgwater Town on Wednesday, depending on Monday's results, there could well be a few of the Parkway faithful making the 58 mile journey up the A38/M5 to observe proceedings. Your correspondent may well be one of them.

  5. FT: Odd Down (Bath) 0 Plymouth Parkway 2 (Farkins 5, Carter 13) Parkway travelled to Odd Down looking to continue their 19 game unbeaten run and maintain their position as league leaders. With Mikey Williams and Aaron Bentley out injured and Nick Milton and Christian Pople unavailable, 4 personnel and some positional changes had to made from the midweek league cup semi final victory at Cadbury Heath including the welcome return of captain Shane Krac from a 4 match suspension. Parkway made the perfect start taking the lead after 5 minutes. A Jamie Lowry free kick was not fully cleared enabling Krac to recycle the ball to the far post where central defender Rob Farkins calmly slotted home from the angle of the 6 yard box. Parkway continued to threaten and on 10 minutes Les Afful just failed to connect with a dangerous cross from the right from Mike Smith. Parkway continued to stretch the Odd Down defence and went further ahead on 13 minutes. Fine link up play between Smith and Carter down the right split the Odd Down back line with Carter peeling off to the back post and maintain his recent good scoring run by stabbing home a quality cross from close range. Parkway continued to dominate and on 19 minutes another penetrating attack ended with Smith's acrobatic volley flying just over. Odd Down gradually began to get into the game but a break on the right came to nothing after a poor cross. On 24 minutes a shot on the turn from impressive Odd Down midfielder Ash McGrane flew just over as they started to gain more possession in midfield. A surging box to box run by Ryan Lane on 33 minutes caused some alarm in the Odd Down defence with his cross being blocked and eventually cleared. Play now became more even with Odd Down competing well and Parkway unable to build on their earlier superiority and being forced to defend strongly. On 42 minutes good work from Teigan Rosenquest saw him win and retain the ball setting up Krac whose shot was blocked with Smith shooting just over from the loose rebound. The half ended with Odd Down on the attack and a good move down their right ended with Kyle Moore just touching an angled shot behind for a corner. After a bright start, Parkway's tempo dropped with too many misplaced passes and poor ball retention allowing the hard working Odd Down back into the game and create a couple of half chances. On 46 minutes Parkway were given a huge let off. After conceding possession in midfield, George Lloyd was sent clear going one on one with Moore, who had narrowed the angle, only to pull his shot horribly wide when he should have scored. With Parkway unable to reimpose themselves in midfield and Odd Down seeing plenty of the ball play, became scrappy and disjointed. Odd Down picked up a couple of early bookings with right back Jaiden Savery blocking a Smith run and central defender Kevin Davies tripping Rosenquest, halting his strong run forward. Odd Down continued to have plenty of possession and be the better passing side without really threatening with Parkway being restricted to the occasional counter attack. On 57 minutes Smith was put through on the right but his shot lacked power or direction. Odd Down's Callum Gould was replaced by Reeko Best on 58 minutes as they continued to attack forcing Parkway on to the defensive. On the hour a Krac free kick to the far post was was headed narrowly wide by Farkins with the challenging Davies landing awkwardly, remaining down and unable to move. After a lengthy delay of around 10 minutes and attention from staff and physios from both sides, Davis was stretchered off and replaced by Jake Sinclair with Jake Elliot dropping from midfield into the back four. Once play had resumed, Odd Down continued to dominate possession with their keeper George Dorrington yet to be tested in the second half. On 66 minutes Jack Rhead replaced Afful with a Lowry break then setting up Krac who fired over from a rare Parkway attack. Sam Hillson picked up a yellow card on 73 minutes for kicking the ball away as Parkway began to show frustration with Odd Down continuing to move the ball around well but lacking the vital cutting edge. On 84 minutes a Parkway break saw a Smith cross well controlled by Carter who set up Rosenquest whose shot went just over. Odd Down almost pulled a goal back on 85 minutes when, after a series of corners which Parkway failed to clear, they saw a close range shot cannon off the underside of the bar and eventually cleared. Jordan Annear replaced Carter on 88 minutes as the game entered what would be a lengthy period of stoppage time. Annear almost made an immediate impact a couple of minutes later when more good work by Rosanquest put him in the clear only to see his well placed strike blocked by Dorrington for arguably his first real save of the half with Krac just failing to connect with the loose ball. Odd Down continued to press with Krac receiving a yellow card for dissent on 94 minutes and Farkins heading off the line from a free kick on 96 as the game finally came to it's conclusion. A patchy performance from Parkway who were well in control for the first half an hour only to lose their way somewhat after Odd Down clawed their way back into the game without really threatening. However they hung on, dug deep, defended well and won ugly to gain the 3 points that keeps them at the top of the table by a single point. With Willand Rovers and Bitton beating the bottom 2 clubs Shortwood and Hengrove 6-0 and 6-1 respectively, the title race remains tight and tense with a fluctuating goal difference after today's scores. With an ambulance arriving just after the end of the game, it is hoped that Odd Down's Kevin Davies is not too seriously injured and he makes a speedy recovery. Parkway return to Bolitho Park on Good Friday for their local derby (33 miles) with Buckland Athletic the visitors (kick off 1pm) where they will look to maintain their title challenge, hopefully with a fuller squad being available.

  10. FT: Bitton 1 (McClennan 36) Plymouth Parkway 1 (Lane 39) League leaders Parkway travelled to 3rd placed Bitton looking to extend their winning run to 15 consecutive league games. Having convincingly beaten Bitton 3-0 at home recently, hopes were high of completing the double. 4 changes were made from their midweek victory over Hallen. Adam Carter, Teigan Rosenquest, Christian Pople and Aaron Bentley, returning from his short spell at Truro City, replacing Jordan Annear, Sam Hillson, Les Afful and the suspended Shane Krac. Among the above average crowd of 145 were a good number of the Parkway faithful and also an unexpected, unannounced visit from your correspondent's brother in law from his home in Wiltshire! Good to see him. The game got off to a fast start with Bitton quickly on the offensive and setting the early pace forcing Parkway to defend strongly. However it was Parkway who had the first half chance with Ryan Lane going clear on the left but pulling his shot wide of the far post. With Dean Griffiths and Aysa Corrick looking dangerous up front and fluent through midfield, Bitton continued to push forward with Parkway unable to get their passing game going. On 16 minutes Bitton had a chance which flew just wide as they continued to close and press the Parkway midfield and force the pace with Carter becoming isolated up front receiving little quality service. Parkway had a let off on 25 minutes as they continued to come under pressure with a Bitton free kick being sliced just over the bar by an attempted defensive clearance. From the resultant corner a powerful header from defender Scott Brice was superbly pushed round the post by Kyle Moore at full stretch. Bitton continued to control the game forcing Parkway on to the back foot and unable to retain any decent, lasting possession or create any forward momentum. It was no real surprise when Bitton took the lead on 36 minutes. A free kick from the right, given for a debatable hand ball, saw a wayward defensive header drop to the impressive Joe McClennan some 15 yards out whose spectacular volleyed bicycle kick flew high into the net giving Moore no chance. A quality finish. Proving once again that a team is at it's most vulnerable just after they have scored, Parkway responded almost immediately. From the restart, good play by Rosenquest set up a chance for Mikey Williams whose effort was blocked on the line by Sam Burgess the Bitton keeper. More Parkway pressure then saw them draw level on 39 minutes with Lane firing home a low shot from around 8 yards after Bitton failed to clear their lines. Bitton were forced into a substitution on 40 minutes with Jordan Whittaker replacing lively midfielder Mario Mateus who had picked up an injury. Bitton regained their composure and control, continuing to cause problems down both flanks with the half ending with central defender Billy Fletcher heading just over on 44 minutes. Bitton were the more dangerous side in the first half with Parkway generally on the defensive and unable to create too much going forward with Bitton probably disappointed they conceded just after they had taken the lead. The second half soon developed into a dour affair with a plethora of yellow cards breaking up play. Ibrahima Diallo was the first to be booked on 46 minutes with Jordan Trott firing the subsequent 25 yard free kick just wide. Bentley was the next to be booked on 48 minutes followed by a period of Parkway pressure which saw a Jamie Lowry shot desperately saved by the feet of Burgess. Griffiths and Lane then entered the book on 56 and 58 minutes respectively as play became niggly with little quality from either side. On the hour Griffiths received his 2nd yellow card in quick succession for an arm up challenge on Moore after chasing a long ball into the 18 yard box and felling the keeper. Bitton immediately replaced Fletcher with Dan Hynes with someone from the Bitton technical area also being invited to leave the scene by the referee. Once the game got going again, good link up play between Lowry and Williams saw Williams poke an effort just wide. On 66 minutes Annear replaced Trott as Parkway changed to 4 4 2 formation looking to make the extra man count. Play continued to fluctuate from end to end but lacked any real quality with defences generally in control and few chances being created. On 75 minutes Bitton almost regained the lead when a stunning strike from around 25 yards from Matt Groves smashed against the underside of the bar eventually being cleared to safety. Parkway then broke on the counter winning a free kick on the right with Rob Farkins planting his header just over the bar. With Parkway now pushing forward more and Bitton forced to play on the counter, Bentley saw his snap shot go just wide after a corner on 77 minutes with Burgess saving another Bentley effort on 80 minutes. Parkway made their final substitutions on 85 minutes with Hillson and Afful replacing Pople and Bentley as they went looking for the winner but too often their final ball lacked quality with the Bitton defence holding firm. Bitton had the final chance on 89 minutes with a Brice curling free kick fizzing just wide. Late bookings for Nick Milton and Afful summed up the patchy, uncompromising second half in which both sides cancelled each other out with the draw, Parkway's first of the season in their 33rd game, probably a fair reflection of the game in which defences came out on top. The real winners on the day were Willand Rovers who regained top spot on goal difference (+8) from Parkway having played a game less and seen their two closest rivals drop 2 points. Bitton remain 3rd three points adrift. As the season enters it's final month, the title chase continues and remains wide open with no doubt a few more twists and turns still to unfold. Parkway are back on the road on Tuesday, a mere 60 miles, when they visit SW Peninsula League side Cullompton Rangers in the semi final of the Devon St Lukes Bowl, a trophy they currently hold. They return to Bolitho Park next Saturday when 4th placed Bridgwater Town are the visitors in what is expected to be yet another tough challenge. The tension mounts!! Courtesy of Graham Lloyd

  15. FT: Westbury United 0 Plymouth Parkway 4 (Carter 30, 72, Krac 61, Annear 86) Accompanied by around 25 supporters amongst the 92 in attendance, 2nd placed Parkway made the long trip to Wiltshire to face 4th placed Westbury United. Westbury were one of only 5 teams to have inflicted a league defeat on Parkway this season having had a narrow 1-0 victory at Bolitho Park during Parkway's poor run in October. Due to illness, representative call ups and other unavailabilities, Parkway travelled with a depleted squad enforcing changes from last weeks victory over Bridport. Jordan Trott slotted across to centre half from left back, Ryan Lane dropped into the left back role with Les Afful and Christian Pople being recalled into midfield. Only 2 available substitutes were on the bench. On a bobbly surface making passing and control likely to prove difficult, both sides made a cautious start looking to find their front men early with long balls into the channels. With Westbury's Joe Stradling looking lively early on, they had a half hearted penalty appeal turned down with top scorer Callum Demkiv going down in the area but only a goal kick being given. The first chance of the game on 8 minutes saw Mikey Williams, looking to continue his superb scoring run by making it 8 in 8, force Ed Baldy into a fine save from a well hit shot. Westbury captain Steve Hulbert immediately received the game's first yellow card apparently for dissent. Both sides continued to play a direct style and on 19 minutes the dangerous Demkiv saw his shot deflected just wide for a corner before at the other end Shane Krac volleyed just over after a passage of neat play on the right. Adam Carter up front was seeing plenty of the ball with his strong running and hold up play all across the front line continually pulling the Westbury defence around and putting them under pressure. On 27 minutes Demkiv saw another effort flash just wide after another long ball stretched the Parkway defence. With Parkway now beginning to assert some control through the midfield, they took the lead on the half hour. A corner from their right saw the impressive Carter show good strength and timing by rising the highest and nod home a well directed header from around 5 yards. Westbury were working hard to stay in the game with Jordan Pinder shooting just wide on 35 minutes. Parkway now playing with a good rhythm and energy and defending strongly, created further chances on 35 and 37 minutes with a Krac effort being well saved by Baldy and Afful shooting just over. With Rob Farkins imperious at the back and marshalling the defence strongly, Westbury were generally being restricted to long range efforts with the final chance of the half on 41 minutes falling to Krac who shot just over from distance. After a stodgy start with little between the sides, Parkway gradually adjusted to the difficult surface, gained the upper hand and created the clearer chances but Westbury remained dangerous on the break forcing solid defending from the Parkway back line. Parkway made a strong start to the second half with an Afful shot being deflected wide on 49 minutes. With Krac, Pople, Williams and Teigan Rosenquest now controlling the midfield and Carter continuing to be a threat up front they doubled their lead on 61 minutes. A neat passage of play through the midfield ended with Rosenquest cleverly setting up Krac who turned sharply on the edge of the 18 yard box and fired a crisply hit left footed strike high into the net with Baldy well beaten. Westbury replaced Pinder with Dan Kovacs on 65 minutes as they looked to claw their way back into the game. With Parkway continuing to dominate, the lively Krac fired just over on 64 minutes before the game entered a short chaotic period with both sides being reduced to 10 men. A rash challenge by Krac just in front of the technical areas on 65 minutes saw a period of deliberation and consultation by the referee who eventually gave Krac a straight red card when most observers on and off the field seemed to think it may only have been a yellow. Westbury then replaced Jamie Jordan with Will Stead (who came on with no number on his shirt). Having been on the pitch for about 5 minutes, Stead was booked for a silly challenge in midfield and immediately given a second yellow seemingly for uncomplimentary remarks made to the referee regarding the original decision. Once a semblance of order had been restored and both sides adjusted their formations, Parkway increased their lead on 72 minutes. A long ball into the Westbury 6 yard box saw Carter once again show good strength by turning and stabbing the ball home from 6 yards with Westbury unsuccessfully claiming a handball. Carter, who had put in a terrific shift all game, was then replaced by Jordan Annear up front for Parkway's only substitution of the game. Westbury continued to threaten occasionally but with Farkins outstanding at the back and Trott, Lane and Sam Hillson all defending solidly their only real chance came on 84 minutes when a Steve Hulbert volley following a partially cleared corner forced a fine save from Kyle Moore who had been relatively untroubled but competent throughout. Parkway finally sealed the game on 86 minutes. A Westbury attack was broken up in the Parkway half allowing Parkway to break forward creating a 4 on 3 situation with a neat interchange of passes ending with Annear showing good composure and control, firing a powerful left foot strike into the top corner from around 15 yards. Stradling received the game's final yellow card on 87 minutes as Parkway continued their dominance to the end with Williams being denied a shot on goal in stoppage time as he appeared to be brought down just outside the penalty area. A very good all round performance from Parkway despite their depleted squad and on a difficult surface which almost certainly ended Westbury's fading title challenge as they dropped a place to 5th. Parkway remain in 2nd place, a point adrift of leaders Willand Rovers who secured a 4-2 victory today with 2 late goals and 3 points ahead of 3rd placed Bitton who also won today. With the thrice rearranged home game with Hallen taking place this Wednesday and Willand not playing until next Saturday, a Parkway victory would see them go top of the table for the first time this season. Should that be the case, the outcome of next next Saturday's visit to Bitton becomes even more vital and would surely go some way to affecting the destiny of the title. With Parkway having just 5 league games left after that along with the semi finals of the Les Phillips Cup and Devon St Lukes Bowl also to play, the end of season climax could not be more exciting. Thankyou Graham for yet another cracking report, the SJA British Sports Journalism Awards surely beckons
