Brading Town Man of the Match: DEAN STUBER.

On a pitch not suited in anyway to playing football, 2 sides with many players unavailable, served up a defensive ” comedy of errors ”

Oakfield took the lead after a keeper error, allowing the home side a goal with their first attack of any note. Brading equalised to make it 1 v 1 at half time. A disappointing first half, with little flowing foootball.

The second half saw Oakers storm into a 4 v 1 lead, following a catolgue of defensive errors. From somewhere, Scott Lawson found the energy to encourage his side on. Caymen Collins started to torment down the right and was ably backed by Woodnutt. Vale & Buckett was now running at Oakers back four, who were giving away an array of free kicks. The introduction of Woodhouse and Thomas saw an uplift in the Brading game.

The Oakfiled back four were under pressure, one by one the Romans pulled their way back level at 4 v 4. Woodhouse in midfield was now winning balls in the air and on the floor, his energy was just what Brading needed.

Brading found two more goals, one a cracking header from Vale to lead 4 v 6. The dull 1st half was long forgotten… a long ball into the Brading box was not cleared and Stuber, who had an excellent game, pulled back his man. Referee Hopkinson, showed a red card and gave a pen, which was despatched to make it 5 v 6. Brading saw out the remaining few mins with 10 men.

IW Saturday League, Div 1.

Cowes Sports Res 0 v 2 BRADING TOWN.

( Danny Vale 1 & Danny Reeve 1 )

A tremendous performance, the team was decimated, with 8/9 players out injured, etc…most caused by this ridiculous fixture congestion, which is finally taking its toll. Despite recent disappointments in cup games, the team showed superb character!!

Having Reevo sent off after 50 mins, didn’t help,  the lads dug really deep. With NO centre halves available, Sam Knowles and Scott Lawson were exceptional and it was great to see Ollie Buckett and Brian Attrill return to the bench from injury.

James Ranson turned in another excellent performance, as did the whole team on the night. A special mention also to 16 year old Dan Thomas, who made his full 1st team debut and did very well indeed.

Team: Brenchley Woodnutt Lawson Knowles Thomas Ranson Wilson C Collins Vale Reeve B Armstrong.

Simon Moore….Brentford FC.

Former Brading Town keeper, Simon Moore.

Former Brading Town keeper, Simon Moore, is rumoured to be on the radar of probable Premier League champions, Manchester United. Simon has had an excellent season so far, managing 13 clean sheets for his current club, Brentford.

Simon is also rumoured to be on the ” must watch ” list of Sunderland and Newcastle, from the Premier League, as well as several Championship clubs, including Nottingham Forest and Hull City.

Stuart Moore, Reading FC.

Stuart Moore ( Reading FC ), former Brading Town Colts player.



Stuart, like his elder brother, Simon at (Brentford FC), has been learning his trade at Reading FC. Stuart played for several of the BTFC colts sides.

The youngest Moore, has been on loan at Bashley FC this season, but has continued his training at Reading.

He has also played a game for Arsenal u18s against Blackburn. Also for their u21s, in the ” next generation ” series against Marseille.

Stuart also played a game for Leicester City u18s in the FA Youth Cup against Peterborough. All in all, its been quite a busy and eventful season for the young keeper, as he looks to follow in his elder brothers footsteps.

All at Brading Town, wish both Stuart and Simon good luck in their footballing fortunes.
