9th May 2018

Game 1


Stephen Dobbison v Nigel Lamond 0-1

Nigel scored an early goal after good possession. The game then evened out with both players having good possession and numerous shots, however, a a combination of good goalkeeping and poor shooting there were no further goals.

Game 2

Nigel Lamond v Chris Kaberry 0-1

An even game with both sides having good possession but Chris finally made the break through early in the second half. Nigel was unable to break down the oppositions defence and Chris won the game.

Game 3

Chris Kaberry v Stephen Dobbison 4-0

The first 10 minutes were fairly even with both sides having a chance to score. Experience then took over and Chris ran in a 2 goals before half time and a further 2 in the second half.


18th April 2018

Andy 0 Nigel 1

A pure advertisement for the fact all you need is one chance and the game is yours.  After a fairly even first five minutes Andy began to create chances and exert some pressure only to find Nigel's keeper in fine form.  Nigel managed to get in behind Andy's defence 10 minutes in to score with his only real chance of the game.  Despite a second half onslaught from Andy, a mixture of fine blocking, goalkeeping, woodwork and sheer luck lol, Nigel hung on to move towards the two points and his 2nd WASPA title.

Nigel 1 Stephen 0

Although the final result was a fair one, Stephen created enough opportunities to have scored, getting behind Nigel's defence on a couple of occasions and can keep his head held high.

Stephen 0 Andy 3

Nobody at half time would have forecast this result as for the first ten minutes Stephen had Andy on the back foot and forced him into several saves. Andy began to get into the game and just before half time hit the post but 0 - 0 it was. Stephen, clearly gaining in confidence, was perhaps too guilty of going for the all important goal and leaving himself wide open at the back for Andy to take full advantage in the 2nd half giving in the end quite a flattering scoreline.

A good night with some good banter!!


18th January 2018

A good morning in Chopwell, despite the snow.

First up was Dave 5-0 Stephen
Not a lot to say. Stephen gave it a go and was caught with some soft finishes.

Next Stephen 0-1 Nigel
Nigel just had the better of the game and was able to come up with the only goal . Both players made some good blocks, showed some good touches and both players had shots.

Finally Nigel 0-0 Dave
Nigel had by far the better of the game and had several chances, while Dave never had a shot! Some great blocking from Nigel throughout the game and unlucky with some of his shots. If it was a boxing match, Nigel would have won easily on points.




12th December 2017


The heat was on in a freezing dungeon this morning. Plenty of controversy, moaning, whinge-ing, huffing and puffing. Just what you expect when these three meet up.

Highlights - Dave's trade mark opener against Chris just before half time. That really put the pressure on Chris who responded well after the break with 3 peachy goals.

Dave's winner against Andy about a minute from time... real killer goal that one!

Chris's opener against Andy after about 7 seconds.... The second one was pretty good too....

The games were played in good spirit... most of the time... but the explosion that the South Shields Mafia predicted might not be far off... watch this space....

13th October 2017

Andy 0 Dave 2

A deserved win for Dave who was the better player on the night.  Missing a couple of opportunities early on with his quick one-two's Dave scored literally seconds before half time following a dreadful mistake by Andy leaving his goalkeeper out and an open goal.  Andy's only real opportunity in the first half was a shot that hit the post hit with some venom that resulted in a goal kick at the other end.  In the second half Andy attempted to apply some pressure without creating any real opportunites and Dave scored again literally seconds before the final whistle with a terrific shot after Andy was caught with little defence.

Dave 2 Stephen 1

Dave quickly took a 2-0 lead before Stephen had really settled into the game.  with blocking improving Stephen managed to hit Dave on the break with a goal just before half time.  Stephen had much more possession in the second half and created a few half chances for the equalizer with Dave always looking dangerous on the counter attack.

Stephen 0 Andy 3

Not Stephens best game with Andy dominating the first half and taking a 2-0 lead into half time.  In the second half with Stephen wanting to score badly he left his defence wide open for Andy to score a third and hit the bar when again clean through. 

A good evening was had by all and we all look forward to the next session.

Chris Kaberry emphatic in Ponteland

The scheduled 4 team tournament on 29th April 2018 became a 3 team tournament prior to kick off with the withdrawal of Andy Mill due to injury, therefore, a round robin was played. 

Game 1

Stephen Dobbison v Dave Brothers 1-1

A good contest with Dave taking a very early lead, however, Stephen found his feet and created most of the shooting opportunities but was denied time and again by fine goalkeeping. Finally with 2 minutes to go Stephen scored and the game ended even.

Game 2

Stephen Dobbison v Chris Kaberry 0-3

A match dominated by Chris who scored twice midway through the first half. Stephen was then able to settle and got in some good blocks and had possession but Chris scored again early in the second half which was the end of the scoring.

Game 3

Chris Kaberry v Dave Brothers 5-0

A game of two halves both dominated by Chris who scored an early goal and had Dave on the back foot. Then 3 goals in a devastating 2 minute spell gave Chris a 4 goal half time lead. A further second half strike sealed Dave’s fate and Chris the trophy.

Australian, Adrian Elmer wins in Chopwell

An excellent evenings play in Chopwell, Friday 4th August 2017, where Adrian, on holiday in Europe with his family, won this mini promotional tournament after a tense shootout with Chris Kaberry.  Dave Brothers hosted.  Just shows what you can do if you make an effort to organise a game or two with someone from the other side of the planet.

Scores were.... Dave 0 - 2 Adrian, Dave 0 - 2 Chris, Chris 1 - 1 Adrian. Adrian won shootout 1 - 0. Well done lads!

Dave Brothers wins his first WASPA title in North Shields

Only three players took part in this mini tournament in North Shields on Friday evening of 8th April 2016.

Chris Kaberry refereed proceedings on this occasion.

All three players were very evenly matched and the play was very competitive and tight throughout. Possession play was 50/50 in all three games and it was obvious that the odd goal was going to be crucial. Andy got one of them against Nigel, but Nigel had his chances and was unlucky not to get a point. Dave scored the only other goal in the third game. The outcome of the whole evening would have been different if Nigel had netted an absolute sitter in front of goal, 50 seconds from time. A great save from Dave kept him out.

Dave kept his cool to win the subsequent shoot out with Andy 2 - 0.

Well done to all three players for a very entertaining and enjoyable evening.

Chris Kaberry wins the WASPA Cup in North Shields

This mini tournament on Friday 28th October 2016 kicked off with the first semi final between Chris & Nigel. Two goals in 10 minutes by Chris effectively killed the tie off and Nigel struggled to get into the game thereafter. Nigel was close to scoring a consolation towards the end of the game but a well positioned keeper kept him out.

Dave played Andy in the second semi. This was always going to be a tight game between two players who play and practice together regularly. Possession was 50/50 with Dave getting the best chances and hitting the woodwork twice. 0-0 at full time, the game went into a shootout that Dave won 3-1 with ruthless efficiency.

Nigel and Andy contested 3rd & 4th place. An intriguing game saw Nigel try to frustrate Andy with possession play whilst Andy tried the more aggressive and direct route to goal. The only goal of the game came mid-way through the second period. Some neatly controlled passing play by Nigel created an opening centre left and he cooly netted bottom right. Andy piled the pressure on but to no avail. Nigel finally 'parked the Bus' and took 3rd spot.

Chris played WASPA Cup holder Dave in the final.  Chris dominated possession throughout the game and limited Dave to sporadic snap shots that went wide. Chris created some excellent chances, but Dave made great saves to keep him out. With the clock ticking, a shootout beckoning and less than 2 minutes left on the clock, Chris, with some quick flicks broke through and netted bottom left.

A great evenings play, competition, refereeing and entertainment with some excellent hosting from Andy Mill. Well done lads!

Nigel Lamond wins his first WASPA Cup title in North Shields

Shock waves rumbled down Trinity Street on the evening of 25th November 2016 as Nigel Lamond picked up his first WASPA title.

The opener between Andy and Dave was another tight affair. The pace was hot from the off which resulted in frequent changes of possession and a lot of huffing and puffing. After half time Andy started to take control and scored a real cracker that looped into the top right hand corner. Despite working hard, Dave could not find that recent good form and Andy edged it 1 - 0.

Dave played Nigel in game 2. From the off it was apparent that Nigel meant business. He kept his defense well organized, kept good possession, created good chances, passed well, flicked well and was cool with his finishing. Dave could not find that touch and was frustrated by Nigel's possession play. 2 - 0 to Nigel.

The decider between Nigel and Andy was a great game. Both players really went for it but never lost their shape. Some aggressive attacking play by Andy thwarted once again by Nigel's cool possession play and some great flicking all around the pitch. Both players had chances to win this game but it was Nigel who took advantage of a defensive error to slot home. Andy really pressed hard for the last few minutes but couldn't find that final pass he needed. 1 - 0 to Nigel.

Another great little tournament in Shields. Thanks to Chris Kaberry for refereeing and Andy Mill for his hospitality. Well done lads!

Chris Kaberry wins again.....

Another tight and tense mini tournament was held in North Shields last night, hosted by current WASPA Cup holder Nigel Lamond.
Three very closely fought games were played out with Chris and Dave both edging the host narrowly by 1 - 0 in the first two. The final and deciding game was dominated in the main by Chris who missed some really good chances to take the lead and extend it. Dave made some great saves and was always dangerous on the break. Chris had a great chance with three minutes to go but hit the bar.  A tense shootout followed with Dave taking the lead and Chris scoring twice to move ahead 2-1. Dave tipped off the keeper and bar with his final shot.  These mini tournaments in Shields are very competitive and excellent practice for both playing and refereeing. More groups and clubs should try it.  Thanks to Nigel for hosting and for the tea, coffee and biscuits. 

Andy Mill wins his first WASPA Cup title in North Shields.

Andy Mill snatched his first WASPA title on 10th July in dramatic fashion with a well-taken goal just 30 seconds from time.


Dave and Nigel drew the first game 1 – 1. While both players had chances to win, Nigel should have scored midway through the second half when he shot wide of an empty net. Game two finished Andy 0 – 0 Dave. Again, another tight game between these two that could have gone either way. The final game was very close with both players creating but not scoring. A nervous Nigel was mentally preparing himself for a shootout with Dave, when Andy made a cool move down the left (not like him) and took his time to score from a tight angle. It should be noted that Andy played both his games in an inebriated state after drinking several Jamesons Whiskeys, celebrating with a friend earlier that afternoon. Perhaps he should try this more often!


Thanks to Andy for his hospitality and entertainment. Another excellent mini tournament in Shields!
