Magpies roundup from the Youth Secretary

David Thomas talks to the players after their successful matches on Saturday

Ide Hill FC Magpies - November Roundup

I'm sure all of you know that the U10's took to the field yesterday. And yes I will be waxing lyrical about their performance very shortly. All good things come to those that wait. But before that I thought it would be worth spending a few minutes looking back.


"Looking back, are you sure?". Agreed, this is not something we tend to do in the Magpies. Having said that if you saw James Shiplee in his new football boots and kit yesterday morning you most certainly were "looking back" - back to an age long forgotten.  But I digress. "Forward" is the way forward... but indulge me for just a few minutes... we won't be looking too far back!(Thoughts of James again, oh dear!)

Paxton's luck runs out as hill go down in the league!

New Romney 2 Ide Hill 1

Kent County League Division One East

New Romney deserved their three points with goals from Charlie Partridge and John Williams but Ide Hill will be disappointed with their under-par performance. There was little to commend in their first half display as Ide Hill conceded possession cheaply, failed to read each other’s movements and created few chances.


New Romney were pacey up-front, found space down the flanks and in the opening twenty minutes should have scored but fortunately Ide Hill keeper Mike McKay was in shot stopping form and prevented an early goal. Although not the usual Ide Hill back-four formation this was no makeshift line-up and Rob Piper was in fine form both defensively and going forward. They held firm despite central defender Roumain Duchon having to be replaced through injury after twenty minutes and did well to contain New Romney who led the game one nil at half time.

Hollands & Blair Reserves 2 Ide Hill 3

Kent County League Division One East

A feature of Ide Hill’s play is their strength of character, a collective spirit and attitude that pervades every game and makes them so difficult to beat; their unnamed twelfth man. It was in full display as they came from behind to grind out victory over Hollands and Blair.


Hollands and Blair’s pace upfront and their midfield strength caused Ide Hill problems from the start. Due to injuries and absences Ide Hill’s line-up had an unfamiliar ring to it yet every player stepped up and although under early pressure they were difficult to break down.


Mike McKay in goal made several brave saves throughout the ninety minutes and the pairing ofPhil Alteriac and Romain Duchon in central defence was strong. Although not natural full-backs Andy Rudden and Rob Piper dealt with Hollands and Blair attacks down the flanks.

Free flowing style and team effort through to R3!

Malgo FC 2 Ide Hill 5

Inter-Regional Challenge Cup - Round 2

Phil Alteirac, Ide Hill’s skipper, said their pacey, free flowing style of play and all round team effort overwhelmed Malgo FC on the day. Sometimes scorelines misrepresent a game and Ide Hill’s 1-0 lead at half-time failed to reflect their domination as they closed and pressed down Malgo FC’s midfield and back line.


With Ide Hill on top Malgo struggled to shift the ball from midfield to attack. Ide Hill passed and moved the ball at speed and opportunities fell to midfielder George Kensell, striker Jack Edmeads and winger Columb Grant.

It all sounds a little too familiar, as Hill lose by one!

Ide Hill 2 Faversham Strike Force 3

Kent County League Division One East

After a succession of winning cup-ties, Ide Hill’s form slumped as they returned to league duty and suffered defeat to top of the table Faversham Strike Force.


Although missing players, Ide Hill’s squad is strong enough to compensate albeit on this occasion they struggled as Faversham set the early pace of the game and were quick to attack down the flanks. Ide Hill’s midfield pairing of George Kensell and Ben Pearson, with Columb Grant and Seb Christopers on the wings took time to wrestle control but as the game turned chances fell to Pearson, who hit the bar, and strikers Tom Wright and Nick Capon.
