  1. Afc Halifax vs Leyton Orient Supporters

    Afc Halifax vs Leyton Orient Supporters       In a season that has seen Afc Halifax yet to pick up a win from their first 2 games, they headed into this clash with Leyton Orient needing a good performance, it would be far from Mission Impossible, but they knew they would have to turn up and perform well.     The first good chance however went to Leyton Orient, who’s striker managed to get away from player manager John Barker, but couldn’t find the target. Luckily for Halifax, they managed to get on the front foot and didn’t look back.     The breakthrough came just 10 minutes in when a Nathan Wright flick on from midfield, found Martin Probets, who got away from his marker, knocked it past The Others, and slotted home.      The second wasn’t far away, with a cross from the ever improving Callum Hannan, found Lee Casalinos head, he got enough power on it, but not quite enough accuracy with the keeper pulling off a great save to his right, but couldn’t turn it away from goal, as Adam Ramsden managed to get his head on the rebound and into the empty net.    Halifax went 3-0 up inside of 25 minutes thanks to another Martin Probets run, with a goal similar to his first. Martin showed All The Right Moves, and got clear of the Orient backline, and cooly placed the ball past the on rushing keeper.     With Afc Halifax now running away with it, Martin managed to get his hat-trick, some very quick thinking by Ben Fawkes saw him take a quick throw, which led to Ramsden going through on goal, with Martin as support, he squared it to his mate who tapped it into the empty net.     In a performance that was anything but Magnolia, Halifax just kept making chances and scoring chances. The next goal wouldn’t really be classed as a chance as it came from a 30/35 yard effort. The ball got played through to Adam Ramsden, who found himself in-between the defence and midfield, with neither going to press him, he looked up, picked his spot and curled a simply lovely shot right into the top left corner, and leaving the goalkeeper grasping at thin air.       Halifax now 5-0 up, and with 10 minutes to go before half time, there was still more to come! Leyton Orient weren’t playing bad, and had certainly not given up by any means, Afc Halifax were just playing some amazing football. Right from the back, some call it Risky Business but the defence of Heaton, Adam Probets, and Barker, simply passed their way out of trouble, being very confident on the ball.    Ramsden was soon to join Martin in the hat-trick club, when, just 2 minutes after his outrageous 2nd goal, he scored his 3rd. Collecting a loose ball about 25 yards out he saw the Orient keeper off his line, and lobbed it over him, leaving him in no mans land.     It was that man again, Adam Ramsden who managed to make it 7-0, and scored 3 goals, and his 4th of the day, within 5 minutes. A defence splitting ball through from Phil saw Ramsden 1 on 1 with the keeper, who came rushing out, Ramsden waited for the keeper to go to ground and dinked it over the top of him sending the ball into the net with a really tidy finish.   With just 5 minutes of the half to go, and Halifax 7-0 up, it was soon to be come 8 and then 9! Both goals coming from Martin Probets, who now took his tally for the day to 5. The first was a through ball from Wrighty, who found Martins run and he found the goal.     The second coming from a Ben Fawkes strike that the keeper parried into Martins path, who just had to find the net. At 9-0 that was the first half over, not a bad half of football!      With Halifax going into the break with a 9 goal advantage you’d have thought that the water bottle may have replaced with a Cocktail, and although Barker was full of praise for his team, pronouncing it as ‘the best football Afc Halifax have ever played’, he asked the team to continue their good work.    The second half started slowly for both teams, with Afc Halifax wanting to keep their sheet clean and perhaps feeling the affects of a full throttle first half! The first goal came in the 60th minute, with Nathan Wright picking up the ball on the edge of the box and picking his spot, slamming the ball low into the corner and into net off the post. This saw some subs come on for Halifax, with Stanley Noble, Alex Barrett and Adie Hollands taking the field to join in the fun!      Afc Halifax kept going and kept playing from the back and picking their moments to strike, and getting Halifax’s 11th goal was Phil, who found space in the box with some twists, and some turns and picked his spot, drilling past the keeper.    With 15 minutes of the game to go, Adam Ramsden managed to also get his 5th goal of the game. Some good work on the left hand side by Martin Probets saw him get inside of the box and pull the ball back to Ramsden who took a touch with his left, shifted it onto his right and placed the ball high past the outstretched hand of the Orient keeper and saw the net ripple. Afc Halifax 12 - 0 Leyton Orient.     Leyton Orient, not wanting to have a completely wasted journey, had still not given up and built up some solid pressure and started to have a few chances, a mixture of bad shooting, good keeping by Dave Sutton and a last ditch tackle by Nathan Wright saw Afc Halifax hold on to that clean sheet. It was a great team display, and Halifax were Far And Away the best team on the day, from the defence who played with such quality all game, up to the strikers who were deadly.      There was A Few Good Men to pick from for the Man Of The Match, and if ever there should have been a team award, it was for this game, but with his 5 goals and some fantastic finishing, Adam Ramsden got the honour.         AFC HALIFAX 12 (TWELVE) - Leyton Orient 0   Adam Ramsden 5 Martin Probets 5 Phil 1 Nathan Wright 1   Man Of The Match - Adam Ramsden.

  14. Match Report - Afc Halifax Vs Rochdale

    Afc Halifax Vs Rochdale     Afc Halifax went into this game in good spirit, having picked up some decent results already this season. Up next was an entirely different challenge though, a Rochdale outfit dubbed ‘the best team in the diversion’, and a team Halifax have never done well against, infact, they have lost every time they have played them.    Afc had a strong outfit available, although it took a blow early on when John Luders bottled it and blamed sleeping in on the no show, on the scale of excuses we’ve had this season, it was a poor one. Kev Dawson back from a 5 year absence was a welcome addition though. Even with Afc having a decent selection to pick from, they had no ‘proper’ goalkeeper, it would be Joe who would go in goal for the first half, and he did very well early on with some good saves. However, he was to be beaten when a poor Gav Higgins clearance only fell at the feet of a Rochdale man, who smashed it past Joe. But it was to be Halifax, half way through the half with some really good football from the attacking players, managed to get back into the game. A lovely through ball from Ben Fawkes led to Ryan going through on goal and he finished well to the keepers left.    Going into half time at 1-1, John Barker was full of praise for his troops; they had worked hard and put themselves in a good position but warned that it didn’t stand for much if we didn’t get a positive result at the end of it.   The second half started and Halifax started brightly. Heaton, who was now doing the 2nd half in goal, went through a spell of not much to do. It was all Halifax and they put together some good moves but no clear chances. Adam Gray used his pace well to get into good positions and Captain Ramsden and Kev Dawson worked well up front and didn’t give the defenders a moments rest. It would be from a typical Afc weapon that would put Halifax in the lead. A long throw caused mayhem in the Rochdale box before landing kindly at the feet of Ben Fawkes who had a simple finish. Could this be the game Afc Halifax finally manage to beat Rochdale? Well, Rochdale being Rochdale came back into it and even though Halifax made themselves a good defensive unit, they managed to find a goal. A mazey run by the Rochdale winger cut inside, and perhaps with a touch of luck the ball ricocheted off Higgins shin and into the winger’s path who placed it past Heaton in goal.   Halifax carried on, still a constant threat, particularly from the right hand side, and it was to be a long throw that put them back in front. A carbon copy of the 2nd goal, only this time it fell to Kev Dawson who smashed the ball in from close distance. But then a heated moment between the Rochdale centre midfielder and Adam Gray, would potentially change the game, meaning both players would be sent off (but could be substituted off). With this Halifax tried to close the game off, Heaton taking an age with his goal kicks helped, Ramsden upfront holding the ball up and winning free kicks helped and the team as a whole defending amazingly well all helped but Rochdale managed to make it 3-3 with 15 minutes to go. The ball cleared by a Halifax defender landed at the edge of the box and the Rochdale man took a touch and hit the ball into the bottom corner, and in off the post. Heartbreak for Halifax. Adam Probets who had defended well, limped off with a hamstring injury and it looked like it could be a long 15 minutes. But then a long ball upfront was contested between Ryan and the Rochdale defender, Ryan managed to poke the ball across to Ramsden who was lurking on the edge of the area, he took his time, composed himself and drilled the ball into the bottom right hand corner and past the hapless goalkeeper. A goal from nowhere meant the lads found that extra 10% they needed and with some proper grit and determination managed to see the game out and win it 4-3. Man of the Match, Ramsden’s goal the decider in what was a typical gutsy Halifax performance.  For the first time in 11 years, Halifax won Rochdale. Every single player played out of their skin and Gaffer John Barker was clearly brimming with pride by the final whistle. Onto West Ham away next week!   Final Score - Afc Halifax 4 – 3 Rochdale
