1st Team (Match Report by Surjit Takhar)
Solihull Blosomfield 8 - 0 Kingswinford

Kingswinford visited high flying Solihull Blossomfield for this end of season fixture. Solihull fielded a team with an average age of 26 years whereas K’ford had one player under 35 years old (Taran Singh)! Kingswinford put up a valiant effort against the League Winners who boasted two ex-National League players in their ranks. However, the goals started to rain in after 18 minutes. There were some good passages of play by Kings, however these were few and far between. It must be noted that Glenn Dunn in goal was outstanding again and there were a number of saves that he made which were applauded by the home team as well as K’ford. Captain Surj Takhar "On behalf of the Club and myself I would like to thank all the players who have played first team this season. It's not been easy, we had seven first team players leave in October and it's an achievement that we fielded 12 players every week against some very strong teams. We were unlucky in three matches not to get the right result and a possible (2 Stafford+3 Redditch+3 Ludlow) 8 points. Bearing this in mind I have no complaints. I took the role on in October after a number of committee members approached me, the aim was to field a team week in, week out until season end, this was achieved. I have been very fortunate to have played at this Club for almost 20 years and during that period I have played in (and been part of) some great teams. I have met some great characters during these times and the fun times and the stories are unbelievable! We now need volunteers to step forward and carry this Club on by taking roles on the Committee for next season. I've personally done that for the last 12 years and I am taking a step back. My contribution to the Club is there for everybody to see ranging from holding captains roles , fixture secretaries roles, umpires secretaries roles, umpiring whilst injured to help Club, bringing in new players to the Club, keeping members happy, socialising, etc, etc. I hope the Club pulls together and carries the K’ford story for another 20 years!".

1st Team (Match Report by Sonny Matharu)
Kingswinford 0 - 3 Leamington

The final scoreline does not do Kingswinford any justice. This was a match they dominated possession from start to finish but were just unable to score a goal and Leamington soaked the pressure and counter attacked brilliantly. In a match where K'ford can have few complaints because both teams played in a fair manner and the umpiring decisions were accurate and consistent throughout, the home team were unable to find a path to the Leamington goal. There were again numerous short corners along with half chances for Taran Singh, Sam George, Surjit Takhar. Leamington played their best player, who normally plays center midfield, as sweeper and he was able to use his distribution skills to start numerous Leamington attacks. To summarise Leamington scored their first goal 15 minutes into the second half. They added goals two and three minutes before full time. Vice Captain Tim Sanders "It was a very tight game today for us but we tried our best and hat's off to Leamington they were the better team on the day. Final league game of the season next week and we are hoping for a good performance against the League Leaders". Man of Match Glenn Dunn. A remarkable save from a Leamington Short Corner in early part of the Match.

O50's EH Trophy (Match Report by Lubby Ram)
Bournemouth 2 - 4 Kingswinford
Goal Scorers: Ranjit Bhadal, Billy Jawanda
(Bournemouth were later disqualified for playing an under age player - Kingswinford progressed to Semi-Final)

After tough games in the League on Saturday, the young vets team travelled down to Bournemouth hoping to enjoy the game as well as the seaside. It was a lovely day and everyone was happy and looking forward to the game. The game started well and the opposition pressed quickly and were three goals up in no time from well taken converted short corners. However, not to be outdone, we had Lionel Messi Chana who weaved his magic on the left hand side time and time again managing to get quite a few short corners. Unfortunately, we were just not able to convert more of our chances and only Gerard Billy Jawanda’s perseverance at a short corner got us back into the game.
The second half saw Rooney Ranjit come more into the game as well as Tiger Woods Ginge as Kings tried to build on the momentum from the first half. Lionel Messi Chana continued to weave his magic and we earned some more short corners one of which we scored following a great ball from Billy to Ranjit. Following another well worked short corner, Gerard Billy Jawanda weaved his way through the opposition like John Travolta on the dance floor and his shot seemed to have been stopped by one of the opposition's legs and what seemed like a clear penalty; however, the umpire awarded another short corner which was disappointing. With renewed vigour, we sought the all elusive equaliser and in pushing forward, we left gaps at the back and Bournemouth managed to obtain more short corners one of which was converted. However, heads still did not drop and we fought till the final whistle credit to all the players. Club stalwarts Manjit Sidhu and Sati Takhar commented positively on all the players efforts and never say die attitude and commitment. Evergreen Captain Parj Sangha shared that all the players deserved man of the match accolades and he was proud of all his players.

Ludlow 2 - 1 Kingswinford
Goal Scorer: Taran Singh

Kingswinford fielding a bear squad of players for this trip to Ludlow had Billy Sandhu stepping up from 2nd's and new youngster Kamran Singh in their ranks. The match started at a frantic pace on a slow and bumpy Much Wenlock pitch. K’ford played a strategic game and controlled Ludlow’s most dangerous players with excellent tackles by Raghvir Singh and Tim Sanders. It was K’ford who had the first clear cut chance from a cross by Surjit Takhar. Ludlow had most of the play but when the ball got to K’ford Super Veteran Balkar Jawanda he was able to spread the game with his array of long and short passing skills. K’ford won a short just before the stroke of half time and it was converted by Taran Singh stabbing the ball home across the line. The second half saw K’ford stop all Ludlow advances and the home team were getting rattled. Five minutes before the end of time the match entered its most controversial period. The umpire awarded a short corner against K’ford and yellow carded Balkar Jawanda for what could be seen as a fair challenge outside the K’ford D. K’ford defended the SC well but seconds later the same skilful Ludlow player was tackled by Raghvir Singh and he too was given a Yellow and short corner. Ludlow scored from this to make it 1-1. There were two minutes to go and Ludlow sensed a weak point in the K’ford defence and made sure they ran into the K’ford 25 hoping they would get a short corner. Their hopes were answered by the umpire and the match saw six short corners awarded against K’ford in the last two minutes (this must be a record!). Cruelly K’ford were denied even a point as Ludlow hammered home a goal despite Glenn Dunn’s best efforts to keep the ball out. Club Captain Kaz Purewal commented "We should have got at least a point today but for the harsh yellow cards and short corners which were at best free hits outside the 'D'. Today and the game against Redditch have been heart-breaking. To see the whole team give so much effort and go home empty handed is unbelievable. It means next week it is one of the most important games in the Club’s History". Man of match was close call between James Armstrong and Raghvir Singh but Raggi wins it due to his excellent reading of the game in defence.

Tamworth 3 - 1 Kingswinford
Goal Scorer: Lubby Ram

Kingswinford with a bear thin squad travelled to distant Tamworth for this exciting fixture that could have a bearing on where K’ford end up in the table come season end. With the game plan made clear by the Captain and Coach, the players started the game brightly and thwarted Tamworth’s attacks time and time again. K’ford had some half chances on the counter attack and went close when Takhar crossed a perfect ball through the Tamworth D. Unfortunately Kaz Purewal and Taran Singh were unable to apply the finishing touch. Tamworth finally got a goal on the stroke of half time. The second half started brightly for Tamworth and they produced some great one touch hockey to open up the K’ford defence. However, Glenn Dunn in goal was at his best and produced a save of the season to deny them a second goal. Ten minutes before the end K’ford won a short corner and it was the Tamworth keeper’s turn to produce a double save from Billy Jawanda's strikes. The following short corner saw a switch and Lubby Ram was able to slot home. Cue 1-1 and an ecstatic K’ford team. However, this joy was short lived as some slack passing led to Tamworth scoring two goals late on. Billy Jawanda "When we stick to the game plan we look good and can play anyone in this division. However, lapses in concentration, players straying away from what we talked about cost us dear. With Bloxwich drawing today, the table illustrates that we must gain another 3 points to remain in West Midlands Division 1 next season. Man of the match was close between Glenn Dunn and James Armstrong, however James wins it for his tireless running and tracking back for the team. Well done young man!".
Next week there is a club match at 2pm Dell and Club Meeting (@ Dell) for all members to attend.

Kingswinford 1 - 1 West Bromwich
Goal Scorer: Colin Morris

Kingswinford welcomed local rivals West Brom to the Dell for their penultimate game of the season. Kings started brightly and created opportunities which led to short corners. One of these was executed by Colin Morris to give Kings an early lead. West Brom stung by going behind forced up the tempo but were kept out by some solid defending with a half time score of 1-0 to the home team. In the second half West Brom looked to carry on where they left off and some sloppy defending by Kings allowed West Brom to equalise. Both teams looked to grab a winner but both defences held firm. Man of the match - Elliot Steedman - cool, calm and collected when on the ball and great tracking back when the ball was lost

O50's EH Trophy (Match Report by Hari Singh)
Rugby & East Warwick 1 - 2 Kingswinford
Goal Scorers: Richard Turner, Billy Jawanda

A bare minimum squad of eleven players made the journey to Warwick in this EH Over 50's Trophy match. The Match was an exciting affair with some great hockey from both sides. Warwick had more of the possession but Kingswinford made some great attacking moves involving skilful play by each of their eleven players. Warwick spurned their chance to take the lead midway through the first half by missing a penalty stroke. Warwick were then thwarted from scoring on the line after tackles first by Club Legend Sati Takhar and then by Mohinder Singh. This gave K'ford confidence and with renewed effort Richard Turner ran in on a shot from outside the 23 metre line to connect and score the first goal. Billy Jawanda followed up three minutes later converting from a short corner after some slick passing moves to go in to the second half with a two goal lead. Warwick had some further attacks from which they won numerous short corners but keeper Geoff Millman stood solid in goal until five minutes from the end of the game Warwick scored and created a very tense last few minutes as K'ford held out. A special thank you goes to the veterans who travelled from Leeds to support the Team. Kingswinford are away to Bournemouth on 16th March in the quarter finals.

Kingswinford 2 - 2 Stafford
Goal Scorer: Sam George, James Armstrong

Kingswinford pulled off an amazing result against an in-form and very strong Stafford 1st X1. After a stern team talk and excellent suggestions from the Senior players about tactics, it was decided to play 4-4-2 formation following Lubby Ram’s advice. The team made a perfect start when Takhar crossed for Sam George to score. K’ford repelled attack after attack from Stafford. Glen Dunn, Raggi Singh. Tim Sanders, Lubby Ram, Richard Brown, Kaz Purewal, Billy Jawanda, James Armstrong, Taran Singh, Sam George were immense in defending the K’ford D. It was the second half when Stafford finally broke through and made it 1-1. They added a second goal to make it 2-1. However, K’ford did not allow their heads to drop and following a brilliant Short Corner routine Jawanda made a 1-2 with Lubby Ram who in turn squared for young James Armstrong to slot home his first league goal of his 1st team career. Club Captain Kaz Purewal "This was a great result and ideally we could have got maximum points from this fixture but we will take the one point which maybe vital come season end". Sarj Takhar added "Everybody played brilliant apart from me and I put my hand up and apologise, heavy drinking the night before is not the right behaviour of a captain! There were excellent performances today from everybody and especially Taran Singh, James Armstrong, Lubby Ram and Tim Sanders. However Glenn Dunn wins the man of the match for two outstanding saves during the first half."

Ludlow 6 - 4 Kingswinford
Goal Scorers: Richard Turner, Colin Morris, Gurmail Chana (2)

Kingswinford travelled to Ludlow on a cold but sunny day for their last away League game of a mixed campaign which started brightly but has slowly fallen by the way side. K'ford started brightly and had most of the early possession but were facing a Ludlow side that quickly started attacks through fast counter attacking hockey which gave the home team a two goal lead. K'ford regrouped from this and were level before the break thanks to goals from Richard Turner and Colin Morris. More counter attacking from Ludlow meant two further goals gave them a 4-2 lead at half time. After the break Kings tried their best to get back into the game but Ludlow kept to their game plan well and scored two more goals. Kings showed their never die attitude to score two more goals thanks to Gurmail Chana but Ludlow ran out winners in the end by a score line of 6 goals to 4.

Kingswinford 1 - 7 Old Wulfrunians
Goal Scorer: Kaza Purewal

An ageing, ailing, arguing K’ford 1sts made a perfect start to this fixture when Kaz Purewal slotted home a cross to put the home team ahead after only five minutes. However, straight after the goal, Old Wulfs were allowed to score the equaliser. K’ford had the better of the play in the next ten minutes or so but as usual this season legs tired, players lost concentration and Old Wulfs were allowed to take hold of the game. Players within the K’ford team need to improve their basics as unable to stop the ball possession went straight to Old Wulfs who were ruthless in front of goal. There were chances for K’ford but both Takhar and Taran fired straight at the goal keeper. The team has now agreed to enjoy their hockey and play without pressure. With a few weeks left to Season End commitment is needed from all players. No man of the match this week.

Redditch 5 - 3 Kingswinford
Goal Scorers: Lubby Ram, Gurmail Chana, Surjit Takhar

Kingswinford travelled to Redditch in a pulsating match v Redditch Hockey Club. Captain Surjit Takhar went through a detailed game plan to explain exactly how he wanted the team to play in a 4-3-3 formation. This worked wonders as K’ford had 90% of the early play winning numerous short corners via new player Gurmail Chana's outstanding hockey stick skills. It was Redditch who took the lead via a counter attack. Redditch added a second to make it 2-0. K’ford responded when Billy Jawanda squared to Lubby Ram to slot home just before half time to make it 2-1. The second half saw a very questionable decision by the League Umpires awarding a penalty flick to Redditch after the ball had clearly hit the Redditch forward’s foot. Redditch player Steve Cook scored the penalty flick and immediately apologised to K’ford admitting it was a poor decision by the umpire! K’ford Captain incensed by the decision replied via a brilliant strike taking a through ball by Jawanda and hammering an unstoppable hit into the Redditch goal. K’ford pushed for an equaliser. However another contested short corner awarded to Redditch allowed them to make it 4-2. K’ford responded when Raggi Singh played a superb ball to Takhar allowing him to cross to Gurmail Chana to tap home to make it 4-3. K’ford then had a number of short corners which they were unable to convert. Searching for the equaliser Kingswinford left gaps in their defence for Redditch to score and win the game 5-3. Club Captain Kaz Purewal "I am an honest guy and I always respect the umpire’s decision. However, today I was disappointed with some decisions and I know it's difficult in a vital game to get everything right but Kingswinford go home with nothing even though it could easily have been 3-3 instead!" The joint man of the match award today goes to the two youngsters James Armstrong and Tom Hickman who both ran their legs off tracking back and forward in midfield roles. Next week Kingswinford will face local rivals Old Wulfs in a vital match and will no doubt give a warm welcome to ex-Club Captain Mark Wilson. A large crowd of spectators is expected so please advise the captain if you are going back for teas so food is available accordingly.

Kingswinford 6 - 2 Evesham
Goal Scorers: Elliot Steedman, Colin Morris (4), Hari Singh

Kingswinford 2nds turned out to face Evesham on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon. There was one ray of sunshine as Kingswinford managed to get a full complement of 11 players on to the field and even had the luxury of a substitute. The game started well as the ball was passed confidently between the strikers and midfield with the pressure showing after four minutes as Elliot Steedman put the ball into the back of the Evesham goal after some slick passing. The visitors pushed forward but were caught again a few minutes later with the a goal from Colin Morris. The pressure continued with a further three goals coming in the first 20 minutes with Hari Singh netting a goal after Colin had secured a first half hat-trick to put Kingswinford into a comfortable 5 - 0 lead. The Kingswinford defence held their nerve repelling the Evesham attack but Evesham finally broke through with a goal just before the half time whistle. The second half was much the same as Kingswinford pushed for further goals with the forwards passing the ball around with confidence. The ball was passed quickly from the back through midfield and up to the forwards but unfortunately the play did not always get the end result it deserved. Eventually the Kingswinford pressure showed and Colin got himself on the score sheet once more. Evesham managed a consolation goal late in the game but the game was comfortably Kingswinford’s by then. Hopefully today’s performance can be taken forward into the remaining games.

Kingswinford 0 - 8 Bloxwich

Despite the score-line reading 8-0 to Bloxwich, Kingswinford were for the first twenty minutes in total control of this match. The home team won eight short corners, forced three outstanding saves from the Bloxwich Keeper and then succumbed to Bloxwich's pacey counter attacks. The visitors grew in confidence as they scored goal after goal and towards the end of the match were playing like a team at the top of the table rather than at the foot of it. Vice Captain Tim Sanders "In all my years of hockey I have never seen a match overturn like it did today. We totally dominated possession, forced save after save from Bloxwich goal keeper and then as soon as Bloxwich scored their first goal they were like a different team altogether. The vital point in the game for me was at 0-0 when the Bloxwich Keeper made an unbelievable save from a fierce placed shot by Billy Jawanda. The last 15 minutes we were playing with nine men, after two yellow cards and it was difficult to compete. However, considering the majority of the players in the 1sts are helping out after a season of turmoil, no-one can be criticised as we are doing our best in very difficult circumstances". Man of match Gumail S Chana - the new player won numerous short corners in the first 20 minutes.

Wednesbury 6 - 0 Kingswinford

Due to last minute withdrawals, Kingswinford made the short trip to local rivals Wednesbury with only 10 players. Facing a fired up opposition, this was never going to be a good thing which showed from the start with Wednesbury dominating possession and creating chances. Kingswinford defended intensely and Glenn Dunn in the Kings goal was in fine form with some of his saves even being applauded by the opposition supporters. The pressure took its toll with Wednesbury breaking the deadlock about 10 minutes before the break and scoring twice more to make the half time score 3-0. More of the same continued in the second half and Wednesbury scored three more goals to make the final score 6-0.
Man of the match - Glenn Dunn - fine saves throughout the game.

Bromsgrove 4 - 0 Kingswinford

A very weakened Kingswinford team visited top of the table Bromsgrove and came back with a performance from which they can hold their heads high. With a number of regular 1st teamers pulling out during the week, possibly fearing a heavy defeat from the League Leaders, the visitors took to the field a bit fearful of the opposition. However, K’ford held their own and were able to attack and defend in numbers against rapid Bromsgrove attacks. It took Bromsgrove 20 minutes to get a very lucky goal with the ball just finding it way through goal keeper Tim Sanders' pads following some outstanding earlier saves. Bromsgrove added a second just before half time. K’ford had chances to pull a goal back when Surjit Takhar fired inches wide and Billy Jawanda was unlucky not to convert three Short Corners. In the second half K’ford had the better of the chances and Colin Morris and Indy Baddhan went close. Bromsgrove won a debatable short corner ten minutes before half time and their powerful shot was saved on the line first by Sharm Dhaliwal and then the re-bound by Raghvir Singh. However, Bromsgrove got very lucky goals at the end of the match for a flattering 4-0 score-line. Captain Surjit Takhar "Due to a number of players pulling out, I had a bare 12 squad and that included Kaz Purewal who has been sick with Flu for last 14 days or so. I had to play people out of position including myself. Bromsgrove have hammered stronger teams than us at their home pitch, this result was not bad considering we gave Bromsgrove three very easy goals. We now have a handful of games left and I will be playing players who play regular not those who turn up once in a blue moon". Just a mention of the Bromsgrove captain’s comments after the match "K’ford gave us a very good game today and some of their players are very good on the ball. I hope they stay in this division as they have some wonderful characters that light up all occasions”. Man of Match Sonny Matharu.

Kingswinford 4 - 3 Charnwood Mountsorrel
Goal Scorers: Dulla Sandhu (2), Kuldip Randhawa, Dippa Matharu

Kingswinford had an excellent result against a very strong Charnwood Mountsorrel over 50's XI. K’ford started stronger and were unfortunate not to go ahead when Richard Turner, Billy Jawanda and then Kuldip Randhawa went close to scoring. K’fords defence held firm with Mohinder Singh and Sati Takhar making some excellent tackles. An excellent through ball by Lubby Ram allowed Dulla Sandhu to slot home to open the scoring. K’ford added a second through Kuldip Randhawa slamming home a scrappy finish. Charnwood responded in the second half with two well taken goals. Half way through the second half Dippa Matharu made a mazy run and scored K’fords third goal. He then dribbled past three defenders and crossed for Dulla Sandhu to score his brace. The visitors then won a debatable penalty flick. K’ford goal keeper Geoff Millman was unlucky not to save it despite guessing the right way. The final result was 4-3 to K’ford. K’fords veteran skipper Parj Sangha added "This is an outstanding result for us against a very strong opposition. We look forward to a favourable draw in the next round". Man of the match Dulla Sandhu - for a defender he took his goals very well.

Redditch 3rd 1 - 6 Kingswinford
Goal Scorers: Richard Turner (3), Sharm Dhaliwal, Indy Baddhan, Surjit Takhar

Kingswinford with a blank week visited Redditch taking a mixture of 1st team and 3rds players. The match was played at a competitive pace yet lacking the cutting edge a League fixture brings. Despite numerous attacks of positive play by Redditch it was Kingswinford that took the lead. Sarj Takhar fired a powerful shot that the Redditch Goal Keeper saved only for super veteran Richard Turner to deflect home at the far right post. The 2nd and 3rd goals were almost carbon copies of the 1st. At 3-0 up K’ford changed their tactics at half time. In the second half K’ford went close via youngsters Alex Gutteridge and Navin Baddhan. However, a stubborn Redditch withheld all K’ford pressure. It was left to veterans Indy Baddhan and Sharm Dhaliwal to use their experience to find their way through. Takhar added a final goal 10 minutes before full time. Redditch got their consolation goal on the stroke of full time. A special thank-you goes to Sonny Matharu who provided great hospitality to the K’ford team on his home patch. Surjit Takhar "It was a good game to play today and despite missing numerous 1st teamers it gave us a good chance to stay match fit and competitive as we have some very important fixtures coming up. Players like Rich Turner, Navin Baddhan, Colin Morris, Alex Gutteridge were outstanding in the match. I’ve had the pleasure of playing in the same teams with Richard Turner for many years now; his knack of being at the right place at the right time is an outstanding quality that brings him many easy goals! If he had played the 2nd half, I'm sure he would have added to his hat-trick!". Man of the match Richard Turner.

Droitwich 7 - 0 Kingswinford

Kingswinford 2nds travelled to Droitwich for their first League game of 2014. Maybe still suffering from a New Year’s hangover, Kings started slowly and were three goals down within 20 minutes. Some excellent goalkeeping from Glenn Dunn meant there were no further goals. After the half time break, poor discipline cost Kings with a player receiving a yellow card for dissent and Droitwich took full advantage of this to extend their lead. A late chance fell to Thomas Hickman but the keeper did well for his only save of the game as the final score finished 7-0. Man of the match - Glenn Dunn - excellent saves to make the score sheet more respectable.

Kingswinford after a five week break had a great game against a strong West Brom 2nd X1. K’ford with a number of 1st teamers missing and three players playing after an eight year break took the game to West Brom. Sonny Matharu opened the scoring to make it 1-0. Billy Jawanda made it 2-0. However West Brom came back and made it 2-2 just before half time. A formation change by the coach at half time worked wonders. Super forward Sarj Takhar grabbed a brace to give K’ford bragging rights in this local derby Match.
Man of Match - Dippa Sahota great return after nine years out of the game. Also new player Verinder Singh had great game too.

Leamington 1 - 3 Kingswinford
Goal Scorer: Billy Jawanda (3)

A new look Kingswinford team mixed hard work with grit and determination to gain a much needed three points in this very tough away fixture against a young and strong Leamington 1st XI. Kingswinford made the worst start possible after going 1-0 down. However, the team stuck to the tactics and formation discussed by the new coach and this paid immense dividends. There was a stunning hat-trick by super veteran Jawanda which turned the game on its head. The passing was crisp and pin-point and the third goal for K’ford came after eight such passes starting from Dhaliwal, Singh, Matharu, Purewal, Taran, Jawanda, Takhar and then back to Jawanda to strike home from D Top. Chairman Julian Turner "It was a great performance today. Hopefully this result will be the catalyst for us to build on and move forward after the turmoil of recent weeks. We are working to stabilise the club and build from the grass roots up. There are many promising avenues being considered that if they are successful will benefit Kingswinford HC in the short and long term!". Man of the match goes to young Taran Singh who made some great tackles in the last stages of the game. There was also a good performance from young Navin Baddhan.

With the League now on a break until after Christmas, Kingswinford 2s travelled to local rivals West Brom for a friendly as a mid season wind down. West Brom started brighter and were 2-0 up in the first ten minutes and 5-0 up at half time which would have been a lot worse if not for some good saves from goalkeeper Glenn Dunn. In the second half Kings looked brighter with West Brom scoring 4 more goals but Kings finished with a consolation goal thanks to a fine short corner strike from Hari Singh.

Kingswinford with a 'new look' team determined not to concede any goals. With old hero Dippa Singh and Raghvir Singh coaxed out of retirement K’ford had the early running of the game. However, sloppy passes all over the pitch led to K’ford 3-0 down before half time. K’ford changed the formation and had more chances on goal but were unable to convert. At the other end Tim Sanders made outstanding saves to keep it 3-0. Ludlow eventually took advantage of the tiring K’ford legs. They were able to score two very late goals. There were good performances from Dave Williams, Lubby Ram but Tim Sanders wins it with an outstanding penalty save. Tim Sanders added "We are showing some outstanding commitment now. Players are determined to play. Julian Turner was here today whilst he has become a father for the second time a few days ago. Congratulations to Julian and his wife".

Kingswinford 1 - 8 Tamworth
Goal Scorer: Surjit Takhar

After a turbulent three weeks Kingswinford 1st team were able to field a full team. Many 2nd and 3rd teamers have stepped up to the 1sts. K'ford started brightly with great link-up play between Hockey Legend Balkar Jawanda and Colin Morris. From such
a move K'ford scored the opening goal, with Surjit Takhar, now playing in midfield, finding space on the near post to tap home. The great start did not help K'ford, with many players switching off and allowing Tamworth to settle into their pass and move game. Tamworth scored five goals, three of which were conceded very easily by Kingswinford, before half time. The 2nd half saw K'ford concede three further goals. It was in the final 20 minutes that Kingswinford took on board the game plan that was discussed at the start of the match. Basically to hold onto the ball at all costs. Sharp crisp passing between Richard Brown, Sharm Dhaliwal, Billy Jawanda, Sonny Matharu, Colin Morris, Andy Cutler and Takhar allowed K'ford to hold onto the ball and keep Tamworth on the back foot. There were some great runs by the youngsters Jordan Webb and James Armstrong in the final stages of the game. Vice Captain Tim Sanders " I think there are positives from today, especially the last 20 minutes of the match. Bearing in mind this team has never played together and we are pulling players from all corners of the Club, it can only get better. In fact I am sure it will get better!".

Old Wulfrunians 3 - 1 Kingswinford
Goal scorer: Mark Wilson

K’ford missing several players took the game to Old Wulfs. Sarj Takhar forced a great save from Old Wulfs keeper early on. Taran Singh, with an open goal at his mercy decided to dribble round the last defender. These missed opportunities cost K’ford dear as Old Wulfs scored a break away goal. K’ford made it 1 -1 on the stroke of half time. In the second half K’ford had numerous chances to take the lead. Jordan Webb, Cole Hickman, Dave Williams and James Armstrong all went close. Old Wulfs were more decisive in front of goal scoring two break away goals. Mark Wilson "We gave an excellent team performance today. We now have some players moving away to pastures new. Good luck to them. Hopefully we can still remain competitive in this league".

Kingswinford 5 - 3 Pershore
Goal scorers: Jagmeet Singh (2), Sharm Dhaliwal, Billy Jawanda, Colin Morris

“Ever dance with the devil in the pale blue light”? Well, the 2nds seem to relish doing this week in week out. Yet again, we started slowly against Pershore who sat one place below us in the League. With the defence sitting far too deep, Pershore were allowed to run freely and in numbers at the K’ford goal and promptly took the lead. This led to K’ford showing a little sense of urgency and were rewarded with a penalty corner, which Dhaliwal neatly slotted in to the keeper’s right corner. However, after equalising K’ford went back to sleep, allowing Pershore to score twice. Half time score 1 – 3. A harsh and frank exchange at half time saw an angry and determined K’ford take the game to Pershore. After a few minutes into the second half, Navin Singh announced that he had found the “Get out of Jail” card with a beautiful defence splitting pass that resulted in Balkar Jawanda finding the back of the net. With K’ford pressing, Pershore gave away another penalty corner. This time, Dhaliwal beat two players before setting up Morris to sound the backboard. Tenacious tackling and visionary passing from Navin Singh led to Jagmeet Singh putting the icing on the cake with two goals to take K’ford to another hard fought victory. Dhaliwal said after the game that "though these types of games are interesting for the spectators, the team as a whole has to improve in the early stages of games and be more professional right from the very start." Man of the Match: Navin Singh.

Old Wulfrunians 7 - 1 Kingswinford
Goal scorer: Andy Cutler

Kingswinford 3s made the short trip to local rivals Old Wulfrunians on a cold and windy day. With only 10 players on the pitch at the start, Kings were always up against it and this showed when Old Wulfs scored four early goals to take control. Once the 11th man had found his way onto the pitch Kings gained the upper hand and replied thanks to a goal from Andy Cutler. With this new found confidence Kings pushed forward for more goals but Old Wulfs showed their threat on the break and scored to make it 5 -1 shortly before half time. After a heated team talk at half time Kings tried to get back into the game with a vengeance but Old Wulfs scored two goals late in the half to put the game to bed and leave the final score 7-1.

Kingswinford 7 - 4 Redditch
Goal scorers: Mark Wilson (2), Ajay Sandhu, Cole Hickman (2), Jordan Webb, Surjit Takhar

Kingswinford were involved in an unbelievable result today and up until the last ten minutes there was no certainty which way the score would go. K’ford started brightly and had numerous chances. Despite getting his usual powerful force behind his hits Surjit Takhar fired two shots inches wide of the post. It was left to Cole Hickman to open K’fords account with a cute finish on ten minutes. Ajay Sandhu then set-up Jordan Webb to tap home. Mark Wilson repeated the move setting up Hickman to tap home. Minutes before half time Redditch made it 3-1 after a well worked counter attack move. The second half started badly for K’ford and within five minutes Redditch had scored two counter attack moves to make it 3-3. Matters got worse when Ajay Sandhu picked up a yellow card. Down to ten men K’ford showed their true mettle and Takhar scored against the run of play to make it 4-3. Redditch replied immediately to make it 4-4. Cometh the hour cometh the hero and Sandhu returned back into play to score an outstanding solo goal. Sandhu then won a short corner following an excellent move involving link up play between Takhar, Taran and Sandhu tapping home. K’ford then won a penalty flick which Mark Wilson put inches wide. However, Wilson made up for it by scoring two goals from short corners with unstoppable drag flicks. Redditch were dazed by K’fords comeback and the score stood at 7-4 at the final whistle. Mark Wilson "We proved today that we are a team who are fighting for each other and I am really pleased with the outcome. We can go from strength to strength if we can train together on a regular basis and move forward on the strategy discussed today. We had Kam and Steve missing today and to get this result was outstanding."
Man of the Match Ajay Sandhu who was unstoppable today.

Evesham 0 - 7 Kingswinford
Goal scorers: Billy Jawanda (5), Sharm Dhaliwal, Jagmeet Singh

K’ford 2nds made the trip over to Evesham for their early afternoon pushback. After playing their escape from jail card last week, the 2nds were eager to get back to winning ways. With Captain Dhaliwal asking the team to focus on the basics, the 2nds started the game with zest and vigour. Once the first goal was scored by Jawanda, K’ford took total control of the game and if not for the heroics of the Evesham keeper, the score could easily have reached double figures. A special mention to Evesham for their post match hospitality. It was greatly appreciated!

Bloxwich 3 - 4 Kingswinford
Goal scorers: Surjit Takhar, Mark Wilson, Ajay Sandhu, Taran Singh

Despite a team talk of keeping it tight for the first ten minutes, K’ford repeated last season's mistake and gave a hardworking Bloxwich team a two goal start and a foothold in the match. The home team deserved their lead and were outstanding for 15 minutes. However, thereafter K’ford launched the comeback and Surjit Takhar opened the scoring with a neat finish from ten yards out. A Short Corner, won by Taran Singh, resulted in a brilliant drag flick by Mark Wilson into the bottom right hand corner. Ajay Sandhu scored from the next short and it was 3-2 to K’ford as a bewildered Bloxwich looked on in amazement in the dying stages of the 1st half. The 2nd half was a tight affair with chances few and far between for both sides. Ten minutes before time Cole Hickman found Takhar with a brilliant sweeping ball to the right of the D, Takhar side stepped the last defender and crossed for Taran Singh to slot home from five yards out. Minutes from the end Bloxwich got a goal from a defensive lapse but it was too little too late. There were some good performances from all the K’ford squad including impressive tackling by Adam Pritchard but man of the match goes to Kam Maan for some neat skills during the dying stages of the match.

Kingswinford 3 - 3 Wednesbury
Goal scorers: Billy Jawanda, Sharm Dhaliwal, Jagmeet Singh

The 2nds entertained an undefeated Wednesbury side that arrived with a 14 man playing squad and half a dozen support team. K’ford started the game nervously with passes going astray and chances going begging. This wastefulness was punished when a weak pass in defence was intercepted by Wednesbury to score. Half-time 0-1. The team talk by captain Dhaliwal was more akin to a strict school teacher with naughty school children, and typically the teacher was ignored. Another 2 quick defensive mistakes led to Wednesbury scoring twice to take a 3-0 lead. However, K’ford showed their never say die attitude and reminded everyone that we will not be rolled over and that we will fight to the end. A change in tactics saw Jawanda playing deeper and Dhaliwal pushing up. With a higher press, Wednesbury’s defence gave away another penalty corner and at the ninth time of asking, Jawanda struck the backboard. Soon after another attack resulted in Matharu finding Dhaliwal at top D who calmly found the back of the net. With the pressure showing on Wednesbury, their bench resorted to being abusive and threatening towards the home umpire and players. With this cacophony ringing in our ears, K’ford found the back of the net again courtesy of Jagmeet Singh.
With time running out, K’ford went searching for the winner, but were denied by the impressive Wednesbury keeper. Final score 3-3. With the team undecided as to the man of the match, Captain Dhaliwal has decided that the whole team deserved it for their fighting and never say die attitude.

Kingswinford 3 - 2 Bromsgrove
Goal scorers: Mark Wilson (2), Ajay Sandhu

With the Kingswinford first team’s season starting a week later than the rest of the teams in the Warwick Printing West Midlands 1 Division, Kings had a tough start against a strong Bromsgrove side who were coming off the back of a 15-3 win the week before. Knowing the first 10 minutes would be essential to the result Kings clicked into first gear straight away laying siege to the Bromsgrove goal and were rewarded with two penalty corners. Kingswinford Drag Flick specialist Mark Wilson converted both expertly to take the wind off Bromsgrove's sails. Although looking slightly bewildered after going two down in the first 10 minutes Bromsgrove pulled themselves back together and threw themselves back into the match. Their efforts paid off when just before the stroke of half time they found the back of the net. The second half was filled with tough midfield battles as both teams pushed hard for the goal that would change the match. Kings were the team to make that breakthrough when tight passing led to another penalty corner. This time it was captain Ajay Sandhu who stepped up and slotted home to put Kings 3-1 up. Bromsgrove managed to score once more just before the final whistle passing around the in form Tim Sanders in goal. However it proved to be too little too late as Kings held out for three points to start their league campaign after the best start.

Barlaston 3 - 8 Kingswinford
Goal scorer: Billy Jawanda (5), Kaza Purewal, Colin Morris, Sharm Dhaliwal

On a wet and rainy day the 2nds went on their travels to Stone to play Barlaston in their second league match of the season. What could possibly go wrong apart from a tailback all the way from J14 to the pitch! As a result, after frantic phone calls to the opposition, we arrived with 5 minutes to spare. Without a warm-up, K'ford took the lead through the sublime Billy Jawanda. However, joy turned quickly to despair when Barlaston responded with three quick goals. After 15 minutes, K'ford were down 3-1! This prompted Captain Sharm Dhaliwal to step into the heart of defence and change the game plan and rejuvenate K'ford. With new found impetus, K'ford took the game to Barlaston and turned the screw. Billy Jawanda then punished the defence yet again with a well taken penalty corner, and with Purewal and Morris adding a goal each, K'ford went in at half time with a 4-3 lead. K'ford started the second half exactly how they ended the first and with a high press, put the game to bed with Jawanda scoring another three goals and Dhaliwal with a penalty corner strike as well. Final score 8-3 to K'ford. It was a close call for the man of the match between Sandhu, Singh, Purewal and Morris. Billy Sandhu deserved it for his never say die attitude and tenacious tackling.

Kingswinford 5 - 1 Droitwich
Goal scorer: Billy Jawanda (5)

With a few players debuting in the seconds, Kingswinford 2nds hit the ground running against tough opponents Droitwich. Balkar Jawanda in only his second game back after injury proved to be too hot to handle for the Droitwich defence with all 5 goals as his response to persistent niggling tackles by the opposition defenders. With Glenn Dunn in goal marshalling the defence and Lubby Ram and Sonny Matharu providing a calming influence in midfield, Droitwich found chances hard to come by. Though there are a few wrinkles to iron out, the seconds were happy to get the first game out of the way and are looking forward to the rest of the season. Man of the match: Balkar Jawanda.

Old Halesonians 2nd 4 - 2 Kingswinford
Goal scorers: Mark Wilson, Sarj Takhar

Kingswinford came unstuck against a well drilled 2nd X1 Old Hales team. K’ford started stronger with chances falling to Taran Singh and Jordan Webb. Both forced good saves from the Old Hales Keeper. Mid-way through the first half Old Hales caught K’ford on the counter attack and were 1-0 up. A similar move made it 2-0. A well taken short corner made it 3-0 to Old Hales before half time and a goal on the stroke of half time was 4-0. Stand in Skipper and coach Mark Wilson changed the formation to 4-4-2 to combat Old Hales fast counter attacks. Within minutes this had an impact and resulted in a Short Corner to Kingswinford. Wilson stepped forward and dispatched a drag flick into the top left corner. Within minutes K’ford scored a second when Surj Takhar struck a fierce unstoppable shot from D Top into the home team goal. There were further chances as the visitors now had the upper hand including a well worked short corner 1-2 between Takhar and Wilson, which Wilson struck an inch wide of the post. Mark Wilson "I am glad we got that result out of the way, it helped us learn our weakness before the League starts. We will work on these in Training and I'm expecting a good turnout this week! With AJ back and few more senior players we can get better and better." Man of the Match Steve Beatty.
