bulletTomorrow night is our end of season presentation evening - lists of winners etc on-site over the weekend.

bulletThe First Team signed off the season with a comprehensive 5-0 Challenge Cup victory yesterday against Ardley Utd at Carterton.  Match Report:
bulletChampions Didcot Town signed off from the Hellenic League with a third consecutive win in the Challenge Cup Final. After wins against Bishops Cleeve and Carterton in past seasons they beat Ardley United 5-0 for a memorable treble.
Didcot started on the offensive and Ardley keeper Steve Edwards made a brilliant double save from Andy Parrott and Andy Wallbridge within the first two minutes. Moments later, however, Edwards could do nothing to prevent Parrott nodding home from Danny Wallbridge’s knock-down.
Stuart Beavon had the next chance but shot weakly at Edwards before Didcot doubled their advantage in the 18th minute. Beavon broke into the box and he unselfishly squared the ball to Ian Concannon to stoke home from 10 yards.
Edwards made another outstanding save to deny Concannon two minute later. Ardley nearly pulled a goal back when Phil Martin broke away from a Didcot corner but his shot went wide.
The goal of the game came on the half-hour when Beavon broke clear to set-up Jack King who fired a stunning right-foot shot into the corner from 20 yards.
Beavon himse;lf got on the score-sheet shortly afterwards when he chipped Edwards in to make it 4-0.
There were still further opportunities for Didcot to score more before the break but again Edwards was in inspired form. First he denied Concannon and then Beavon with his feet. On the stroke of half-time Ardley should have scored following a mis-judgement from Didcot keeper Chris Webb but Danny Campbell was on hand to clear.
Half Time: 0 - 4
Didcot regained the flow eight minutes into the 2nd half when Beavon brought a great save from Edwards. Didcot scored their 5th goal in the 57th minute when Concannon received a pass and slotted the ball to Beavon to hit his second of the game. After this the pace slowed as Didcot played the ball around to complete a hat trick of cup wins. Ardley worked hard but were held firm by Campbell and Wallbridge in Didcot’s defence.
Didcot: Webb; Beckett (Goodall 55); Jack (Bedwell 60); Campbell; Wallbridge; Parrott; Heapy; King; Concannon; Beavon; Powell (Green 70).
bulletThe win puts a seal on arguably our most successful season ever on the eve of our centenary season.  Stuart Peace and his team have re-written the record books this campaign and it's been an absolute pleasure to have been following the club over the past two seasons.  WELL DONE TO EACH AND EVERY PLAYER AND THE MANAGEMENT TEAM.
bulletThe season formally closes this Friday with the End of Season Presentation Evening.  Not surprisingly the function room is going to be full to the rafters to celebrate the successes not just of the First Team, but Reserves and Youth sides too.
bulletOver the forthcoming days we will have a new Vote Caster Poll for goal of the season (nominations please on the Messageboard).
bulletThe next fixture is the mouth-watering prospect of Didcot hosting a Premiership club (Reading) for the first time in our history.  The game is scheduled for Friday 14th July, and will be all-ticket.  Details to follow but we will be selling tickets probably towards the end of May and into June.
bulletWe should find out this week which teams will make up our League next season at Level 4.  First News of that can be found here on-line.
bulletPLEASE CONTINUE TO DRINK AT THE CLUB OVER THE SUMMER MONTHS AND WE URGE ALL DIDCOT SUPPORTERS TO WATCH THE WORLD CUP MATCHES ON THE BIG SCREEN AT THE LOOP.  DETAILS OF MATCHES AND ANY SPECIAL EVENTS WILL BE ADVERTISED HERE SO PLEASE VISIT THIS SITE REGULARLY!
bulletIT IS VITAL TO KEEP ON SUPPORTING THE CLUB AS EVERY PENNY WILL BE NEEDED IF WE ARE TO COMPETE IN THE SOUTHERN LEAGUE NEXT YEAR.
Thu 4 May 2006
bulletThe First Team bring the season to a close this weekend with the Hellenic League Challenge Cup Final, against Ardley Utd, at Carterton on Saturday.
bulletDidcot have a fantastic record in recent years and are looking to lift the trophy for the 3rd time in a row.  Ironically, the first of these wins was under the management of Peter Foley (with Stuart Peace as assistant), and he now manages at Ardley. 
bulletWe are are in excellent form, our last defeat was at Almondsbury at the start of February, and spirits within the team are running very high.  However, Ardley have proved this season that they can match anyone on their day and with this being a final the formbook can be thrown out the window.  Peter Foley is an excellent tactician, he has seen how we play, and I expect he has a plan up his sleeve.  It looks set for an exciting end to the season.
bulletOn the playing front Stuart should have a near full strength team to pick from with Bradley Ward a possibility after a recent groin injury.
