New Signing

D Gowers on Thu 7 Jan

We are pleased to confirm that we have signed and registered the signing of midfielder Nick Awford.

We have been pursuing this signing for some time, and we are delighted to have completed the matter today. Nick was until recently at Portsmouth, and enjoyed loan spells at Gosport Borough and Bognor before joining Farnborough in the close season. 

Our recent dip in form has highlighted the need for some  additions to our squad. Nick Awford will add some real quality, and will hopefully help us push on for the remainder of the season.

on Tue 4 Nov

Team Solent 6-2 WCFC

Hardly a fair reflection on the game, which amazingly City might have won had they not spurned lots of good chances!

A really entertaining game, played (for no good reason) on the 4G pitch, rather than the grass. City certainly played some excellent football in the first half, but capitulated in the second period - with a mixture of missed chances and poor defending.

That said yet another good learning curve for our very young team!

City outplayed!

on Thu 23 Oct

By far the worst day and worts game of football played by Winchester City last night. Just a couple of shots on target was all that City offered the travelling fans as they were soundly beaten 3 - 0 by Brockenhurst.

Brockenhurst were well organised, stronger and by far the better team on the night.

U16 Win

on Mon 20 Oct

Winchester City U16 2 - 1 Eastleigh U16

City dominated most of the first half and were unlucky to go in to the break at 0-0, with a handfull of chances missed. The second half started in the same vain but a very well taken solo effort by Jon Darling saw city gain the upper hand. A second goal by James Doughty after good link up play with Jake Freeland Searle doubled the score. The last 20mins saw Eastleigh push forward and saw them pull one back. City were now on the defensive and after Jack Jerram was adjudged to have handled just outside of the box a superb fingertip save on to the crossbar by stand in goalkeeper Lukas Woods saw the momentum swing back to city who then pressed Eastleigh hard. With the final whistle city could look back on a very good performance and a job well done.
The game was played in sunny conditions with a crowd of 50

Charlie is well known to the City faithful, having been a favourite in a previous spell at the Denplan. He can play either as a wide player or as a striker.

Hopefully we can complete the formalities in time for Charlie to be in the squad for our game at Brockenhurst on Wednesday.

Welcome back Charlie!

Leigh Mills to take a break from football

on Mon 13 Oct

aken from The Winchester City Messageboard

 

For purely personal and family reasons, Leigh Mills has decided to take a break from football. Leigh has recently taken on additional responsibilities at the School he works, and feels that he can not currently commit the time needed to sustain the high standards he has set himself.

Whilst we are all disappointed, we fully understand and accept his decision. Leigh has been an exemplary man to work with, and a true example to others. He is one of the nicest men you could meet, and we all hope that he will be back with us in the not too distant future.

Concord Rangers (3 - 2 ) Winchester City

on Sun 12 Oct

So close to a shock!

City so close!

on Sun 12 Oct

Winchester City came very close to earning a draw in a very closely fought match at Concord Rangers in the FA Cup 3rd qualifying round yesterday on Canvey Island.

City almost got off to perfect start when Warren Bentley broke through in the opening minutes. Two goals for Warren Bentley in each half, one from the penalty spot was not quite enough against opposition three divisions higher. Concord Rangers finished 3 - 2 winners althoughCity gad chances in the last fifteen minutes which could have earned at least a replay.

It wasn't to be but the whole team, managers, supporters did Winchester City proud. The only other disappointment was the poor showing of Concord Rangers supporters. Only 202 watching and halfof those made the trip up from Hampshire.

CITY MARCH ON

on Wed 1 Oct

City put on a great performance last night in the FA Cup 2nd qualifying round replay at Newport IOW. A Zach Glasspool goal on 23 minutes was enough to see City through to round three. A trip to Concord Rangers, Canvey Island on the 11th October is the reward and the Conference South team will be a big test for City. But as we know, anything can happen in the Cup!

Winchester City FC - The Early Years

on Mon 22 Sep

Our club badge proudly boasts that Winchester City FC was founded in 1884. But have you ever wondered what our club was like in its early days? Who were the people that founded the club? And what was their motivation in doing so? Who were the star players of the time? Who were the villains? In what competitions did the club compete? And what were their successes and failures?

You can find the answers to all of these questions, and many more, at a special evening event to be hosted at the WCFC clubhouse on Friday 26th September. City supporter Ian Denness will be presenting some of the findings of his research into the early years of association football in Winchester. This will look at a number of football clubs based in the city, but will principally be charting the ups and downs of WCFC. The story that unfolds is one that includes, among other things, player violence, police corruption, civic disturbances and some fabulous moustaches, all set amid a backdrop of financial shortages and public indifference!

The doors will be open on the night at 7:30, with the talk due to start at 8:00. The bar will be open and, although entrance is free, there will be the opportunity to make a voluntary £5 donation at the door, with all proceeds going towards WCFC. It should be an interesting and entertaining evening, so see you there!
