FA Trophy


O’Neill, Dunn



In an action packed game Tooting can consider themselves unlucky not to have forced a replay, if a couple of refereeing decisions had gone their way things could have been different. The Terrors dominated the early proceedings with Jordan Wilson forcing a good save from Jack Smith and Danny Bassett shooting wide from close range. United took the lead in the 18th minute when a Sol Patterson-Bohner cross was thumped home by the returning Chace O’Neill who enjoyed an excellent game along with Eddie Dines. The lead did not last long as five minutes later Danny Talbot scored direct from a from free-kick

after Adriano Moraes had been penalised for a foul. In the 38th minute Town’s Kelvin Bossman was through on goal but Matte Pierson made a good stop.


In the second half a turning point in the game came in the 58th minute when Tooting could have had a free-kick just outside the box, the ref played an advantage Chace O’Neill then appeared to have been brought down in the box the assistants flag went up but apparently for offside. The visitors then stormed up the other end and Zack Reynolds broke Tooting hearts by

scoring. Five minutes later another big call when Dunstable’s Jack Hutchinson who was already on a yellow card committed another foul and could well have been shown a second but wasn’t and not surprisingly was immediately substituted. The visitors then had an effort cleared off the line and from the resultant corner Kelvin Bossman poked the ball home. The Terrors then went close when Danny Bassett had a shot hacked off the line. In the 79th minute the introduction of Taurean Roberts caused panic in the Town ranks and when he was bundled over just outside the box Jordan Wilson’s free-kick was side footed home by Billy Dunn. Tooting then put on a lot of pressure in the closing stages and an equaliser looked possible but it was not to be as in the huge amount of stoppage time Saul Williams put the game to bed for Dunstable.

Summing up defeat was hard to take but Frank and Paul have put together a good squad and now we need to concentrate on the main target of promotion to the Ryman Premier.

Bennett, Roberts(p), Dunn, Dixon



Tooting took the points in this seven goal thriller and completed a league double over the Kent side at the same time. Things did not start to well as Chatham took the lead after just seven minutes with a fine goal from Joshua Jackson. Tooting responded with an effort from leading scorer Billy Dunn which was cleared off the line. In the 12th minute Matte Pierson made a brilliant point blank range save to deny Junior Kaffo.

Tooting then piled on the pressure Taurean Roberts hit the post, but midway through the half Ollie Bennett who was having a fine game converted a Roberts cross to bring the sides level. Three minutes before the break Billy Dunn was brought down in the area and Taurean Roberts coolly converted the penalty and in the last action of the half Mike Dixon hit the woodwork.


In the opening 15 minutes of the second period Tooting threatened on several occasions without finding the net and Matte Pierson was called into action to make a good stop from Javlon Campbell. The Terrors non-stop pressure paid off in the 71st

minute when Billy Dunn fired in one of his specials from 25 yards giving the keeper no chance. But a minute later United gifted Town a goal after a defensive mix up Joshua Jackson again on target for Chatham. Man of the match Mike Dixon then went close twice but got the goal he richly deserved in the 89th minute to make it 4-2. There was just enough time for the visitors to be awarded a spot-kick for a holding offence, former Spurs player Owen Price scoring. However that was the last action which preserved Tooting’s position near the top of the table. Well done to the Team and Management plus our

great fans for their backing during the game.

Dunn, O’Neill, Dixon(2)



Tooting turned in the complete performance making a real statement of intent everyone played their part as the Terrors enjoyed their best win of the campaign so far. Cray had the first effort of the match in the 5th minute through Brandon Scott but that was as good as it got for the visitors who included former Terror Solomon Taiwo in their ranks. United responded with good strikes from Taurean Roberts and Mike Dixon which were well saved by Nick Blue the Cray keeper. However he could do nothing about Billy Dunn’s opener in the 23rd minute, in the build up Jordan Wilson had forced a good save the ball fell to Peter Wedgeworth who set up Billy to score with a clinical finish.

Four minutes later Mike Dixon had the ball in the net but was just offside.


After the break it was one way traffic with Jordan Wilson firing just over two minutes into the half. After sixty minutes Mike Dixon made it 2-0 with a fierce low drive into the left hand corner from just outside the box giving the keeper no chance. Two minutes later Chace O’Neill jinked around several defenders to score a fine solo effort to put United three up. The last word went to Man of the Match Mike Dixon who smashed in number four after the Cray custodian had parried a Billy Dunn strike into his path.

In the 71 st minute Dixon had a chance to complete his hat-trick but pulled his shot just wide. The Tooting defence

looked very solid with Callum Wilson having a good game at right-back along with his counterparts. The football played was of the highest order, well done to the players and the management for another exciting afternoon. Not forgetting the fans for their encouragement.

Tooting & Mitcham Utd : Matte Pierson, Callum Wilson, Peter Wedgeworth, Eddie Dines, Quincy Rowe, Sol Patterson-Bohner, Jordan Wilson(Claudiu Hoban), Chace O’Neill(Ollie Bennett), Mike Dixon, Billy Dunn(Lee Hall), Taurean Roberts. Subs not used Danny Bassett, Adriano Moraes.

Where do you begin this was one of the best Tooting & Mitcham performances for many a day apart from the seven goals the woodwork was rattled twice and Luke Colquhoun made some fine saves plus there were several near misses. Credit to the home side who never gave up. It was Chipstead who had the first chance after five minutes when Tooting gave the ball away and Raheem Sterling-Parker was through on goal but fired wide. Tooting then took control with the home keeper making good blocks to deny Billy Dunn and Mike Dixon.

The Terrors took the lead in the 25th minute when Billy Dunn cut in front

the right and rifled an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net. Matte Pierson then made his first important save from Sterling-Palmer in the 30th minute and in the 44th minute another brilliant block from Rob Hastings. United then went

straight up the other end to make it 2-0 Billy Dunn with a solo effort.


After the interval Tooting were rampant in the 47th minute Mike Dixon fired in from just outside the box and sixty seconds later he knocked in number four converting a cross from the right. Danny Bassett then hit the post and Mike Dixon saw an effort also brush the woodwork.

In the 77th minute the Chipstead goalie made a great save as Ollie Bennett’s fierce volley look destined for the net. Four minutes later a Taurean Roberts free-kick hit the wall and rebounded to Billy Dunn whose shot into the ground bounced over the stranded keeper. Tooting’s seventh goal was a real goal of the season contender when Billy Dunn went on a mazy run and curled his shot into the top corner. Looking back one of the best attacking displays from a Tooting side I can remember well done to all concerned also to the Tooting fans for their singing in the rain.

In the visitors ranks were ex Terrors Vernon Francis, David Graves and Scott Simpson. In their last four league games Tooting have scored 18 goals to beat that you have to go back to 1958 when the great Tooting & Mitcham side of that era scored 27 goals in their first four league games the legendary Paddy Hasty getting ten of them. The last time the Terrors scored seven goals away from home in a league match was in April 2003 at Chertsey Town.

Tooting & Mitcham Utd FC : Matte Pierson, Jordan Wilson, Peter Wedgeworth, Eddie Dines(Bashiru Alimi), Sol Patterson-Bohner, Quincy Rowe, Danny Bassett(Taurean Roberts), Chace O’Neill(Ollie Bennett), Mike Dixon, Billy Dunn, Claudiu Hoban. Unused subs Adriano Moreas, Lee Hall.

Tooting made it five league wins on the trot against a young East Grinstead side. The Terrors got the ideal start when Jordan Wilson crossed for Eddie Dines to slot home after 3 minutes. Town had a good chance to equalise in the 12th minute when ex Terror Michael Salako headed wide from close range. Billy Dunn then went on a mazy run and saw his shot just miss the target.

United doubled their advantage six minutes before the break when Chace O’Neill played in Mike Dixon who scored with a low drive. A minute later Matte Pierson had to make a fine save to keep out a deflected cross shot from Marcus Elliott. With the last action of the first half Taurean Roberts was through on goal but Wasps keeper Chris Haigh saved well.


The second half started with the home custodian making a good one on one save to foil Mike Dixon and Matte Pierson made a fine stop from Elliott. Tooting went three up in the 67th minute when Chace O’Neill intercepted a loose ball and played it into the path of Taurean Roberts who scored with aplomb. It was 4-0 after 74 minutes when Jordan Wilson made a surging run down the right and crossed for Danny Bassett to squeeze in from close range.

In the 87th minute East Grinstead looked certain to score but Quincy Rowe made a great block. However from the resultant corner a shot from Alex Arif went through a crowd of players into the net. In stoppage time former Tooting player Leo Mazzone was sent off after receiving a second yellow card. In our last five league games we have scored 22 goals which hasn’t been bettered in consecutive league matches by a Terrors side since the heady days of 1958 when the great Paddy Hasty played and the club enjoyed its superb FA Cup run.

Tooting made it six league wins on the trot as they eventually overcome a battling Godalming Town side who with plenty of men behind the ball made life difficult. In the opening thirty minutes the visitors had the best two efforts with Nick Hutchings and the hard working Jack Mazzone firing over. The Terrors then came to life and stand in keeper Chris Musgrove saved well from Chace O’Neill and Mike Dixon headed wide from close range. Town could have taken the lead in the 40th minute when their skipper Darren Wheeler was though on goal but his shot hit the inside of the post and rebounded into Matte Pierson’s



The first chance of the second half fell to the Town when Mazzone volleyed just wide of the post, Tooting then began to exert some pressure as Taurean Roberts and Billy Dunn both tested keeper Oneal Garnes who had taken his place in goal having arrived at the ground late due to traffic problems. In the 70th minute both teams were reduced to ten men with Jordan Wilson and Chris Wales receiving their second yellow cards. The all important goal came after 78 minutes with another bit of magic from Billy Dunn who cut in from the left after receiving the ball from Danny Bassett and fired an unstoppable low drive

into the far corner. Once in front United seemed comfortable, although in stoppage Town had a corner and sent everyone up including keeper Garnes who got his head to the ball but his effort was cleared. Sometimes in games you have to grind out results and today was a point in case credit to a hard working Godalming side who belied their bottom of the table position. Well done to the Terrors for sticking to the task and claiming the winner.
