It's All Over Now »


Sport. Let's face it, it's all about taking the rough with the smooth. This is never more true than when it comes to competing in the FA Cup.

The three sides we regularly cover for our local newspaper clients - namely Romford FC, AFC Hornchurch and Bethnal Green United FC - have all been playing in the Qualifying rounds of the world's oldest club football tournament.

Here at TGS, we LOVE the early rounds of the FA Cup. We get to savour the ups... and to experience the downs. Sadly, all of our teams are now out of the competition and, yep, TGS was present at all the exits to capture the pain of defeat.

Bethnal Green United took Harlow Town to a replay in the 1st Qualifying Round. A late, late equaliser at Barrow's Farm by BGU defender Ajibola Olatunbosun ensured that the teams met again at the Mile End Stadium two days later.

Despite a brave performance from the homesters, Harlow ran out winners by four goals to nil. BGU's goal hero from the first game reacts to defeat as the referee blows the final whistle in the background...



Romford FC made it through to the 2nd Qualifying Round and were rewarded with a home tie against Alan Devonshire's Hampton & Richmond Borough. The ex-West Ham man must have expected a tough game for his charges at Mill Field and would have been very pleased to secure a 4-0 win.

Romford matched their Conference South opponents for long periods but Hampton's clinical finishing was the difference. Here we see Ian Hodges slotting home the visitors' second goal from close range...



AFC Hornchurch and Brentwood Town failed to trouble the scorers on Saturday in a 0-0 draw at The Stadium. The teams met again last night at the Brentwood Centre to contest the 2nd Qualifying Round Replay.

In what can only be described as a drab affair, Brentwood snatched a last gasp winner to secure a home tie with Woking in the next round. Many of the large crowd were undoubtedly relieved to have been spared extra-time.

AFC Hornchurch's despair is summed up in this image as Tommy Black lies on the turf having had his shout for a penalty turned down...



Hopefully this trio of local outfits will enjoy better luck next season. As the cliché goes, they can all concentrate on the League now!

First... GOAL of the new Hackney & Leyton Sunday Football League season!

Only two League matches were played last Sunday, both in beautiful Victoria Park. TGS was on hand to capture the action.

The opening onion-bag rippler of the 2009-10 campaign was scored by Albion Manor (below). Manor went on to defeat Bancroft United by the odd goal in five to snaffle up three valuable Premier Division points.



The season continues next Sunday with a full programme of fixtures. For full details follow this here linkety-link: http://www.hackneyandleytonfootballleague.co.uk/

Last... APPEARANCE for Grant Flower of Essex County Cricket Club!

All-rounder Flower leaves the county after 6 years to become Zimbabwe's batting coach. He has been quoted as having the main objective of helping them reach Test status once again.

TGS wishes him all the best in his new role which commences in October.



More archive images of Grant can be seen by clicking HERE.

Always... BUSY at TGS!

A couple of long but highly enjoyable evenings at the boxing last Friday and Saturday. Friday's show saw ShoBox: The New Generation team up with Hennessy Sports to promote a couple of international contests.

In the first of them, highly-rated Heavyweight prospect Tyson Fury outpointed Michigan-based opponent Rich Power in a fiercely contested bout. Here Fury lands a peachy straight left to Power's chin:

Wednesday, 1 September 2010 » Back to the Marshes »


TGS is proud to be closely associated with the world famous Hackney & Leyton Sunday Football League. This season TGS has its very own page on the League's excellent website...



A big, big thank you goes to Hackney & Leyton League webmaster, Dino Constantinu, for setting up our page. Dino is a top-notch web designer and runs his own business Flintstone Web Design. Check it out!

The TGS page will provide links to each Sunday's galleries plus details of our special discount which is available to players, officials and fans alike: 20% off all sales over £15.00 (excluding p&p). Just enter the code TGSHACKNEY20 at the checkout to claim the discount!

The new season on the Marshes is just over a week away with the first matches scheduled to kick-off at 10.30am on Sunday 12th September. Things will be a little different this year, however, as preparations for the 2012 Olympics have reduced the number of pitches available to the League on the East Marsh. The area will be turned over to coach park use for 2012 and, fingers firmly crossed, subsequently restored to playing fields.

This is the scene adjacent to East Marsh pitch number 10 as pictured in early August...



A new dressing room block is under construction on the South Marsh which should offer much improved facilities for the players...



...but it will be a bit of a trek for those teams playing on the East Marsh as the changing facilities there have been demolished. It will remain to be seen how the logistics of changing and playing will pan out during the 2010-11 campaign. Sunday 12th will certainly be an interesting day!

Looking back to the start of the 2009-10 season, here's a pic from the match between Lapton and Three Compasses. Lapton went on the win the Premier Division title...

Also, here's some recommended viewing for those that would like more information about the Marshes and the 2012 Olympics...
