1s vs Actonians – 21.04.18

21st April 2018 Merton 0 v Old Actonians 2 The day got off to a bad start as our ref didn’t turn up. Thankfully the 6s referee was happy to do a second game and even better news, or so we thought, was that he was the guy who’d refereed…

1s vs Ibis Eagles – 14.04.18

Ibis Eagles 4 Merton FC 0   Saturday 14/04/18   The final away game of the season for Merton, would see them travel towards the M4 and meet IBIS Eagles.   With only 3 games left in the season it’s a critical stage to get some points on the board,…

1s vs Civil Service – 03.02.18

Back to back away days for the boys in Yellow. It was a rare away trip south of the river to Chiswick this Saturday as Merton took on Civil Service. Civi earlier in the season had effectively bullied the boars winning 3-1 and since had continued that winning form to…

1s vs HSBC – 27.01.18

Saturday saw the 1’s travel to HSBC looking to build on their victory a fortnight earlier. Having been promised the best pitch we’ll play on all season, it was a disappointment when we turned up and it looked like it had housed a small farm during the week. Not to…

1s vs Norseman – 13.01.18

The day started with a few surprises, Clappers was advised his ban had come through in time for him to miss this game and we realised that a number of people had pulled out the night before. We went from having 14 to the bare 11. Thankfully with a few…

1s vs Polytechnic – 06.01.18

W e were home to Polytechnic in the cup which in fact involved us playing away at their ground because the Hood was very wet. We had a strong squad of 14. Everyone was there in plenty of time, which doesn’t mean on time for Jonny and Chaz, but still…

1s vs Norseman – 25.11.17

Merton FC 2 Norseman 0 So after last weeks successful trip to North London, the 1s returned home looking to build on the back of an excellent all round performance. Norseman were a team who had been promoted the season before and similar to Merton, have had an up and…

1s vs Wandsworth Borough – 11.11.17

1s v Wandsworth Borough AFA Surrey/Kent Cup We didn’t know what to expect in this game. WB had beaten Old Parks in the last round. Some of my other football friends play for Old Parks and always tell me how good they are. Yikes! We played really well in the…

1s vs Old Finchleians 18.11.17

1s Match Report – 18th Nov 2017 – Away vs Old Fincheians FC Another away game in very north London. There are always a few complaints about the 1.5 hr travel time, but I’m pretty sure that in reality no one has anything better to do. And it allows the…

1s vs The Warren – 04.11.17

Saturday saw the 1’s take on The Warren in the SAL Cup. After a disappointing result the week before it was pivotal for the lads to get back on track with a win against a team struggling in the league below. Merton dominated possession early on without creating any clear…
