|East Coast Warriors U8 A 1, Buxton U8 4
East Coast Warriors U8 A 1, Buxton U8 0
Warriors started brightly against Buxton with the irrepressible B. Tucker working hard in
midfield. Both teams created early goal-scoring opportunities but it was Buxton who proved
best at converting them and by half time they led 3 0.
After the break Warriors continued to press forward and J. Potts scored his well-deserved
first goal of the season. Goalkeeper E. Knight produced a spectacular save but a further
goal was conceded to seal Buxtons victory.
Undaunted by the result of the first match Warriors played with great determination in
their second game against Buxton. Their passing was far more effective as they adjusted
better to the muddy conditions. S. Creasey and N. Webb linked particularly well in attack
whilst J. Daniels produced sterling work in defence. The first half was scoreless and the
second half saw plenty of end-to-end football. Goalkeeper G. Glen played bravely to gather
the ball from the feet of the Buxton forwards on several occasions. It was A. Ridgway who
broke the deadlock with a long-range shot which eluded the Buxton keeper.
|A Happy New Year to you and all your readers.
Thankyou for publishing the match reports for East Coast Warriors F.C. and giving
publicity to what is possibly the largest organisation for youngsters (both boys and
girls) between the ages of six and 10 in the borough. We held a very successful
Christmas Disco on December 19th, and thanks to the generosity of businesses large and
small in Sheringham, who donated gifts for our fund raising events, we raised well in
excess of £200 for the club funds on the night. We also have promises of funding
for new football kits from two businesses and one individual, which is especially-
welcomed because of our future U11 side playing 11-a-side football for the first time.
Thankyou once again, one and all for your generosity. John Humphrey
|We now find ourselves at the slightly quieter time of year
for Sheringham; however with Easter being early this year the town will start being busier
late March. I am pleased to say I continue to receive letters and comments about how the
residents of the town see the problems which we have. One of the main issues is the
continued damage to cars in the areas not covered by CCTV to this end I have deployed both
our regular officers and the Police community support officers in the areas of Cremer
Street and Cliff road . I would like to see home watch schemes in these areas this would
increase the Police involvement in the community and would help to reduce this vandalism.
If any body in the Sheringham area would like to be involved in such a scheme then they
should contact myself or Mr Ted Gill at North Walsham Police station As you may have read
the article in the EDP concerning the Sheringham Town council meeting we are in the
process trying to replace the local beat Officer I see this as a important part of our
contact with the towns residents I will hopefully have further information for my next
article. To close can I please remind people that we need to know if there is a problem in
their street or estate concerning damage or anti-social behaviour, unless we have a true
picture of the problem areas we cannot direct police officers to the right locations at
the right times of the day As always I am contactable at the station should any once to
speak to me in person. Tony Toynton, Sheringham Police Station

|On Sunday 13th March 2005 we will be having
our annual Royal Marine Band concert in St Andrews Hall , Norwich in aid of King
Georges Fund for Sailors. Tickets may be obtained from myself at the above address
or combined bus and concert tickets from Sanders Coaches ( Tel. 01692 407832 ). Tickets
are priced at £16.00, £12.00 and £4.00 (all reserved ).
King Georges Fund for Sailors cares not only for those that have served in the Royal
Navy and Royal Marines but also Merchant Navy and Fishermen and, of course, their
dependants. Sixty years after the end of the Second World War there are many elderly
veterans from those Services who struggle constantly to meet expensive medical and living
costs and need our financial support to maintain a basic quality of life. It may not be
generally known that, on average, every year 118 fishermen are either killed or so
seriously injured that they will never work again. Deep Sea fishing is the most dangerous
job in the country with, on average, two fishing boats lost at sea every month. Yours
faithfully, John Russell. Royal Navy ,County Secretary/Treasurer, KGFS. Woodlands
