  1. Highlights from Saturdays game against Bridport https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu.be%2F1U6nXrdaU04%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1nz8rjYKBS4MjIZv1NUufF8RzQkZaD_joH5pfTWWl_yWmShsd1UWo8h0E&h=AT2T2XJKu4zhUNr2daKvC9H_OBauNCg8DVacUJqb_zMBylNh9oDmb7PEW3DzdjxvCE5UGWQApNZaHWQbcUK2QubzFuUTNjXe5Mhz7DojuL_GYvoTGQM2PjJZbwvJWQ4FV8SJ1gNc38-MycBEjw
  2. FT: Plymouth Parkway 2 (Williams 42, Trott 54) Bridport 1 (Butcher pen 60) Parkway went into the game against mid table Bridport looking for their 12th consecutive league win (14 in all competitions) and maintain their challenge for the league title. Two changes were made from Wednesday's victory over Bitton with Rob Farkins and Jordan Trott returning to the starting line up with Christian Pople dropping to the bench. With another decent crowd of 180 in attendance and playing against a very strong, wind. Parkway made a fast start creating a couple of early chances with Shane Krac seeing his shot well saved and a Teigan Rosenquest close range effort blocked by keeper Jason Hutchings on 3 minutes. Parkway continued to threaten and a good ball from Jamie Lowry to Rosenquest saw his dangerous cross cleared to safety. Bridport gradually got to the pace of the game and on 13 minutes James Cox saw a long range effort fly just wide. With both sides having difficulty adjusting to the windy conditions and heavy pitch, Bridport continued to compete well with the dangerous Edward Butcher shooting just over from 20 yards on 14 minutes and Braeden Symes also going close from their next attack. Parkway responded well and a good move through the midfield on 16 minutes was ended with Mikey Williams being hauled down by Mark Salter around 35 yards from goal resulting in a yellow card for Salter. The subsequent free kick was well parried by Hutchings followed by a frantic goal mouth scramble with Parkway unable to convert and the ball eventually being cleared. Butcher and Ben Morris continued to cause the Parkway defence problems as play became scrappy, lacking any real quality with Parkway guilty of conceding possession too easily. A Bridport freekick from around 25 yards was only partially cleared allowing Morris to fire in a snap shot which went just wide. Bridport continued to compete strongly in midfield with Parkway unable to get any rhythm into their play or get their playmakers into the game. However, they almost took the lead on 37 minutes when good play on the right by Ryan Lane saw his cross find Williams at the far post whose header was blocked and his follow up shot flash narrowly wide. After a couple of avoidable offside decisions going against them, Parkway finally took the lead on 42 minutes. Lane won the ball in midfield and released Williams who outpaced the last defender, drew Hutchings and despite not getting a perfect contact, slotted home from around 12 yards via the base of the far post.The goal continued Williams remarkable run of scoring in every one of Parkway's last seven games. Butcher and Morris continued to see plenty of the ball but lacked penetration in the final third allowing Parkway to defend comfortably. Parkway almost doubled their lead on the stroke of half time with Carter seeing his shot blocked after more good work by Williams. A scrappy half in difficult conditions with Parkway just about deserving their lead with a determined Bridport also threatening occasionally. With Parkway now playing with the wind behind them, they created a couple of early chances with Carter being thwarted on both occasions by Hutchings. With Parkway now moving the ball much quicker and sharper and Lowry and Krac becoming more influential, they now had a period in control forcing Bridport to defend deeper. On 52 minutes a fine run and clever skill by Williams saw him get into the 18 yard area only for his angled drive to hit the post. With Parkway now applying constant pressure, Krac had a shot well saved before they increased their lead on 54 minutes. A corner on the right from Trott was whipped in on the wind to the back post which may have just shaved the head of Salter before entering the top corner with Trott deserving the credit with the quality of his delivery. The dose was almost repeated on 56 minutes when another inswinging corner from the right by Trott hit the near post and going behind for a goal kick. With Bridport looking to play on the break, against the run of play, they got a lifeline on the hour. A long ball down their left saw a Sam Hillson back pass fall short of Kyle Moore forcing the keeper into conceding a penalty which was duly despatched by the impressive Butcher sending Moore the wrong way. The goal gave Bridport some impetus as they continued to battle well with Parkway's play becoming disjointed. Both sides began to introduce substitutes with Sam Clark replacing Leighton Thomas for Bridport on 64 minutes and Pople and Jordan Annear replacing Rosenquest and Carter respectively on 68 minutes. Bridport were now forcing the pace and another good strike from Butcher was well saved by Moore followed by a second crucial save this time with his feet from the same player. On 77 minutes a fast break from Parkway saw a dangerous cross from Lane bounce awkwardly for Williams who somehow spooned over from 5 yards. Mike Smith replaced Lane shortly after as Parkway weathered the storm and regained some control. Annear was sent clear on 88 minutes only to be dragged down around 30 yards out by Kameron Andrews who received a yellow card when arguably the last man. The resultant free kick was blocked with Krac and Matthew Condliffe also being booked as the game came to an untidy, scruffy conclusion. The final chance fell to Annear in stoppage time when, after a good passage of play, his fierce shot was blocked with a last ditch tackle. A workmanlike, patchy performance from Parkway against a hard working, well organised Bridport in which they just about deserved the points. The effects of the heavy conditions and their hard midweek game probably contributed to Parkway looking heavy legged at times but yet again they did enough to grind out the win which, with more clinical finishing, could have been more comprehensive. It's as you were at the top with Parkway remaining in 2nd place a point behind Willand who won 1-0 with a late goal and 3 points ahead of Bitton who also won despite having their keeper sent for the second time in 4 days! Parkway now travel to 4th placed Westbury next Saturday looking to keep the winning run going and avoid being "doubled" for the first time this season. Thanks to Graham Lloyd for the excellent summary.

  6. FT: Plymouth Parkway 3 (Hillson 10, Williams 34, Krac 50) Bitton 0 At a blustery Bolitho Park, despite the lure of Champions League on TV, a decent crowd of 166 turned out for the heavyweight clash between 2nd placed Parkway and 3rd placed Bitton separated only by goal difference. Parkway were looking to extend their run of 12 successive wins in all competitions (10 in the league) and close the gap on leaders Willand Rovers to a single point. Due to Armed Forces commitments, Parkway had two players unavailable and 3 changes were made from last Saturday's victory at Cadbury Heath. Bitton got off to a fast start with the lively Dean Griffiths forcing Kyle Moore into an early save at the near post and then firing just over on 5 minutes. The game quickly became fast and furious with both sides playing at a high tempo and it was Parkway who struck the first blow on 10 minutes with their first real attack. An incisive build up down the right ended with Sam Hillson firing in a shot from the right flank which cannoned downwards off the underside of the bar with Teigan Rosenquest bundling the loose ball home at the far post to make sure. The referees assistant later confirmed that the ball had crossed the line from the initial shot and the goal was awarded to Hillson. No goal line technology or VAR at Bolitho yet!! The game continued at a fast pace with both sides looking well organised, physical and playing with intensity. The tricky Joe McClennan was a constant threat for Bitton down their left with Kane Ingram pulling the strings in midfield and Griffiths continuing to test the Parkway defence with his strong running. The Parkway midfield gradually started to take control and on 14 minutes a penetrating run from deep by the impressive Jamie Lowry ended with his powerful strike being saved at full length by Dan Worton. With both sides looking to utilise their flanks at every opportunity, defences continued to come under pressure but generally remained solid. Bitton almost equalised on 25 minutes after confusion between Moore and Nick Milton in the 18 yard box allowed Griffiths a shot on target which was blocked at the second attempt. With Shane Krac and the increasingly influential Lowry now gaining more possession and the customary doggedness of the unsung Christian Pople constantly breaking up play and playing simple and effective passes, Parkway gradually began to impose their authority on the game. On 29 minutes a neat exchange of passes between Lowry and Mikey Williams on the right almost breached the Bitton defence who managed to clear to safety. Bitton continued to threaten forcing Parkway to defend in numbers with both Milton and Michael Landricombe outstanding at the back winning numerous headers and tackles. Parkway continued to press with Lowry always prompting and probing for an opening and they doubled their lead on 34 minutes. Excellent hold up play wide on the right by Adam Carter saw him link neatly with Williams who took a return pass, drove into the 18 yard box and finished with aplomb for a quality goal. Bitton bounced straight back and after a free kick had been cleared, the follow up shot from around 10 yards forced an instinctive save with his feet from the alert Moore. Parkway then almost increased their lead with a powerful Carter header from a free kick being superbly saved by Worton. Play continued to fluctuate with both sides having their periods of dominance and creating some half chances but with defences holding firm, the half ended with Parkway good value for their lead. With Bitton now having to chase the game, they started the second half pushing forward forcing an early corner but it was Parkway who increased their lead on 50 minutes. A Krac free kick from the right was cleared out to Rosanquest on the left who showed good skill and awareness to set up Krac who drilled home a quality rising strike from around 18 yards. Bitton replaced Matt Groves with Josh Egan on 55 minutes as Parkway playing with high energy looked to force the pace with a strong run and cross from the left by Carter being well cut out by Worton on 58 minutes. On the hour mark Lowry, always looking comfortable and confident in possession, saw his 25 yard effort fly narrowly wide. Bitton continued to compete fiercely but the nearest they came to scoring was a wild free kick from Egan which flew well wide. Ingram sustained an injury and was replaced by Jordan Whittaker on 62 minutes. With Parkway continuing to threaten, Lowry headed just wide on 65 minutes after a smart passage of play between himself, Williams and Rosanquest. Bitton were reduced to 10 men on 68 minutes when keeper Worton was shown a straight red card for foul and abusive language to a referees assistant. Aysha Corrick took over between the sticks. Carter was then shown a yellow card apparently for retaliation after a midfield melee as tempers became frayed. The impressive Griffiths was replaced by Ben Bament on 72 minutes with Carter, who had caused the Bitton defence problems all game, being replaced up front by Jordan Annear. Bitton continued to press with Parkway dealing comfortably with their attacks and Moore rarely being called into action. Bitton's Ibrahima Diallo was booked for persistent infringement on 75 minutes as play became disjointed and at times feisty. On 78 minutes Rosanquest reacted to confusion between the replacement keeper and a defender only to fire into the side netting from a narrow angle. On 83 minutes Jack Rhead replaced Krac, who had had another fine game, and almost capped a nice little cameo with a shot from 10 yards on 86 minutes which was blocked and cleared. With 10 men Bitton now running out of steam, Parkway eased their way to the end of the game for a crucial and deserved victory against their close rivals which, with just 9 games to go, surely puts them firmly in the frame as genuine title contenders. Parkway visit Bitton in the reverse fixture in a couple of weeks time and must also visit 4th placed Westbury United. Another hard fought, gritty performance against strong opponents with moments of quality football, clinical finishing and solid defending proving to be the difference between the two sides. There is no let up in the action as Bridport visit Bolitho Park on Saturday with Parkway looking to maintain their momentum and keep the pressure on the league leaders as the season draws tow.

  12. Report taken from Cadbury Heath social media. The Heath lost at home today (Sat 9th March) 1-4 against a solid Plymouth Parkway side very much still in the title hunt. Parkway started brightly and looked strong coming forward with the gusting wind behind them, they took the lead on 16 minutes from a bullet header by Nick Milton from a corner. The Heath really picked up shortly after and had a strong 20 minute spell that unfortunately didn't present the goal it deserved. We were holding out for a 0-1 at halftime (with hope that we could kick on in the 2nd half with the wind behind us) but Parkway scored a 2nd in first half injury time through a neat lob by Jordan Annear to go in at half time 2-0 up - a real hammer blow. The 2nd half got underway with neither side really controlling the game and Heath unable to take advantage of the wind, Parkway extended their lead in the 62nd minute through a goal on the break by Mikey Williams. Heath pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 79th minute with a composed penalty through Simon McElroy that sent the keeper the wrong way after a handball,so the score was 1-3. Any hopes of a dramatic comeback were dashed immediately as Parkway went straight up the other end from the re-start and killed the game with a goal from Teigan Rosenquest to seal the game, and the points, with a final score of 1-4. The Heath battled hard but the lead table doesn't lie and Parkway are a strong team that will be very much in the mix for the title at the end of the season. We wish the Parkway players, officials and supporters a safe journey back down the M5 and good luck for the rest of the season.

  15. As we have all said before...If the team is not 100% up for it and committed to each and every game ...you will drop points. I know its an old cliché but there are no easy games. Last nights result is a prime example, I think we all under estimated them, they will do well if they gain promotion, a big, strong well organised and well coached side who probably feel a little aggrieved with the result.
