VIEW FROM THE BAR – v HYTHE & DIBDEN 16-04-22

The View from the Bar    After the last few years, it feels a bit strange looking back on a full, completed season – August really feels like a long time ago. It’s been an up-and-down season, all-in-all, but it says a lot about what Max and the team have achieved that we could afford toRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – GOLD CUP 1/4 Final v WEST WIGHT 29-03

The View from the Bar    So, after a three year break we’re back to Gold Cup action on the Island, and a very welcome return it is too. The last time Westwood hosted a match in the IW Senior Cup was nearly three years ago to the day, on the 2nd April 2019 when weRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – v CHRISTCHURCH 19-03-22

The View from the Bar   I think, had we been offered a draw before the game on Saturday, most Cowes supporters would’ve taken one look at our team sheet and then bitten the hand off whoever was offering the point, given that Blackfield have previously handed us two hearty gubbings this season. But by theRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – v BLACKFIELD & LANGLEY 12-03-22

The View from the Bar    So, seven matches still to play and we’re officially safe from relegation! Heady times indeed (although I can’t say there’s not a little bit of me that would’ve enjoyed a potential make-or-break home fixture against Hythe on the last day of the season). Seriously though, after a couple of severelyRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR v HAMWORTHY UNITED 26-02-22

The View from the Bar    I’m massively at risk of being labelled as a part-timer, as I think I’ve written more columns this season than games I’ve actually attended. Likely to be missing again today – sorry. Very disappointing, especially as we will doubtless turn in our best performance of the season to put aRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – v UNITED SERVICES PORTSMOUTH 12/02/22

The View from the Bar    Brockenhurst looked a pretty tidy outfit on Tuesday, eh? I know we didn’t help ourselves much, conceding two goals within a minute so early on, but I thought we acquitted ourselves well against a very good side after that and were a bit unlucky not to have pulled at leastRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – v BROCKENHURST 08-02-22

The View from the Bar    Amazing the difference a few days can make, isn’t it? This time last week I opined in this column about how 2022 hadn’t got off to the greatest of starts and (forgive me) cast a little doubt on whether that would change as we welcomed title-chasing Baffins Milton Rovers toRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – v BAFFINS MILTON ROVERS 01-02

The View from the Bar    Hmmm, 2022 hasn’t been that kind to us yet, has it? Still, it’d be a nice time to pick up our first win of the new year tonight (although how likely that is to happen I won’t comment on – Baffins being one of the four or five teams whoRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – v ALRESFORD TOWN 15-01-22

The View from the Bar    It seemed terribly unfair that we didn’t get anything out of our last home match, against an altogether not-that-impressive Shaftesbury side. On the evidence of that performance quite how they’ve managed to get this far through the season having lost only three matches is beyond me. Maybe they’re just enjoyingRead More
