SILEBY RANGERS PROGRESSAFTER ARLESEY SELF DESTRUCT
An important game for Arlesey as the FA Vase always holds a special spot for the people of Arlesey. Northampton Sileby a complete unknown to most of us. The game started with a relatively slow tempo.
From a corner the ball was only half cleared and came to Derek Feyi and his volley went just the wrong side of the post. A poor clearance was well intercepted by the Sileby player but he shot well over the bar and a good looking cross in was well taken by Luke Daley.
From an Arlesey FK Feyi picked up the clearance and hit a long shot that the keeper could not hold but his defence helped him our scrambling it clear.
CARVALHO BRACE AND A DIMOV STRIKE SEE OFF TRING ATHLETIC
Arlesey started strongly and really should have netted in just the 2nd min as a bad back pass from Tring, Jalen Miller pounced on it going into the box, closed down quickly it was just about cleared just missing Boyan Dimov
who almost got it on the edge of the area.
A series of Arlesey corners eventually found Bruno de Brito whose header was pushed over from hitting the cross bar. A Tring FK was met by Callum Short who was well tackled by Luke Daley in goal just outside the box but a FK was given to Arlesey. READ MORE...IN REPORT

EARLY FA CUP EXIT AT FIVE GOAL WROXHAM
Arlesey’s season got off to a disastrous start last night at Wroxham as they crashed out of the FA cup. After the very long journey which did effect team selection the game was only 2 mins old when a ball through the defence was not controlled by Lessa Boka which allowed the Wroxham forward to get behind him and he made no mistake as he fired home 1-0.
This was compounded in just the 4th minute as another ball was simply passed through the Arlesey defence and slotted home for 2-0, game over before it had started............READ MORE to continue reading Match Report
DEFEAT AT DIV ONE BUCKINGHAM ATH
Last night we were at a very very windy Buckingham and again didn’t manage to win but it was another good workout that put vital minutes in the tank. With lots of players still trying to win their 1st team spot again Arlesey virtually played 2 teams and of course this led to disruption.
For the 3rd game through this preseason the opposition went ahead through a extremely dodgy penalty that didn’t even look in the box and this was converted high into the net which was brave considering the conditions.
The 2nd period was only 50secs Old as LAMOND
crossed in the keeper flattened Meshack Hendrickson but the ball was bundled in at the far post out of a crowd to make it 1-1 .
The game was fairly even then as Arlesey fed in new players to get everyone on the pitch until a break down the left that just evaded the defence and it was put him from the far side. FT 2-1.
LAMOND HITS A WONDER STRIKE
Despite being three goals down to Ware in today's Pre-Season freindly, Ryan Lamond scored the goal of the game with a wonder strike.
Final Score 1-3 Ware
FA CUP DRAW

Hendon Blitz Blues
Lee Allinson’s Hendon proved too strong for Arlesey Town after they eased to a 6-0 victory on Tuesday evening at Hitchin Road.
The visitors from north west London impressed through a brace from the elegant Luca Allinson, with the powerful Solomon Sambou notching a goal, along with teammates Switters, Shaun Lucien and Sammy Gebrai.

Defeat at Kempston Rovers
Three first half goals were the difference in an entertaining friendly.
Two goals were gifted to the home side and another that could have been prevented in a first half of Kempston dominance. However, a few changes at Half-Time and there was an urgency to our game in the second period where we should have scored at least a goal.
A good game to get Pre-Season going and a good work out in hot conditions. Plenty of returning players and also new ones on show yesterday.
Hendon visit us on Tuesday.

MOSS & LAMOND PUNISH CRAWLEY
A day that was the calm before storm Ciera and on a billiard flat 3G pitch Arlesey had skipper Aarron Browne’s Sundon Park Rangers u7s as mascots for this away game and it proved to be a great watch.
Arlesey started positively as Ross Taylor put in a good cross that the Crawley Green keeper took right under the bar. The home side quickly settled into their familiar passing game on the 3G but Arlesey kept them to some long range shots.....
TAYLOR WINS JANUARY POTM
New signing Alex Taylor has won our January Player Of The Month vote.
Alex won 76% of the votes with Charlie Moss and Charvey Mahoukou collecting the remaining number.
Alex has won 2 Man Of The Match awards. His most recent against Park View last week and previously on his debut versus Tring Athletic.
Well done Alex
QUARTER-FINAL WIN OVER PARK VIEW
Arlesey started with a good intensity although Park View had the 1st chance as the centre forward got in a good volley at the end of a well worked move but it was no problem for Alfie Hickman making a return to the team.
Arlesey started getting their passing game going, a good ball in from Ryan Lamond found Oussama Bennani but he volleyed over.
BLISTERING 45 MINUTES AT COLNEY
Arlesey started well with a more familiar formation and line up. They won a corner after just 2 mins with Aarron Browne putting the keeper under pressure putting the ball right under the bar but he was able to punch clear.
INJURY TIME EQUALISER FOR POTTON
Yet another draw this time 2-2.
Arlesey looked better balanced for this game as they welcomed back Hatch and Moss up front while Conor Young replaced the suspended Josh Brown for his 1st start.
COLNEY HEATH STAND FIRM IN 2-0 WIN
1st game for any new manager is a tough call. Add to that it’s away at 2nd in the league, you have only had 1 training session and you are missing 5 or 6 regular 1st team regulars inc most of the normal strike force, a tough baptism of fire was in the offing.
THANK YOU LEN & JASON
On the the appointment of our new manager Chico Ramos, Arlesey Town FC would like to publicly thank Len Mcmain and Jason Darvall on taking over as cartaker managers when the previous management team left suddenly on October 4th.

MOSS GOAL GIVES ARLESEY 3 POINTS
With the attrition of playing twice a week for the last 2 months starting to bite Arlesey had 3 new signings on show for this game and starting was centre half Jardel Stirling. The pitch was good despite the heavy rain in the week and Arlesey started strongly. With Arlesey pushing forward a good ball fed in James Hatch and he hit a great shot that clipped the bar before going out.
PONTING SENDS ARLESEY THROUGH
A very wet pitch greeted Arlesey last night for this Premiere div cup match v North Greenford. With injuries sickness and work making the squad a little thin Arlesey started pretty well although the pitch made control very difficult for both sides and there were several free kicks as defenders tried to tackle and were just a little out....
