Ashford Town 6 Rovers 3

Rovers 8 game unbeaten league run ended at the hands of newly promoted Ashford at the weekend in a 9 goal thriller. Barton made the best possible start and were ahead after only 3 mins when Elliott Bailey headed home from a Charlie Smith cross to stun the home side. It wasn’t long though before parity was as sloppy defending from the Rovers back four allowed Mark Bitmead to score his and Ashford's 1st of the afternoon. Rovers were again on the luckless side of the referee shortly after as he awarded a penalty for hand ball which was converted by Bitmead for his and Ashfords second. Rovers pressed further up the pitch and were in no mood to let their great league form slip away, Conner Calcu

Rovers 0 Luton Town 3

Barton were shown a master class in football from Luton Town last night for the 2nd time in a month as they bowed out of the Beds Senior cup with a 3-0 loss. On the 1st bitterly cold evening of the winter 357 spectators braved the elements to see The Hatters who dominated from the off pegging Rovers into their own half. The dead lock was broken after 17 mins as some poor Rovers defending allowed Jack Snelus to fire home past stranded keeper Aaron Fulton. Rovers should have equalised just before the half hour mark as a good run down the flank by Rod Orlando-Young resulted in a ball delivered with pin point accuracy to the waiting Josh Bamford who put it over from close range. Controversy at t

Aylesbury FC 1 Rovers 4

Barton Rovers put their weekend FA Trophy woes behind them on Tuesday night as they returned to form with a dominating win at Aylesbury FC. The game started brightly for visitors as new boy Sean Coughlan shot just wide after only four minutes and from then on the writing was on the wall as Barton dominate. Elliott Bailey had an early effort well saved by home keeper Ash Jenkins who was in for a busy night, with Jason Blackett the next to try his luck, narrowly off target. Barton were awarded a penalty in the 26th minute as Darren Locke’s driving run came to an abrupt end as he was felled in the box, with Dan Hutchins stepping up to put the spot-kick away. Rover then doubled the lead through

Rovers 0 Herne Bay 1

Barton Rovers’ poor record in the FA Trophy continued on Saturday as they failed to reach the next round for the fifth year in a row, beaten 1-0 by Herne Bay. After a superb, League Cup win over Dunstable on Tuesday, the hosts looked for a fast start as Alex O’Brien shot just wide after eight minutes, with Rod Orlando-Young putting another attempt narrowly wide. Orlando-Young did have the ball in the back of the next on the quarter hour mark after a fine burst of pace, but it ruled out for a dubious offside flag. This appeared to unsettle the hosts who then conceded the only goal of the game as Herne Bay’s Stuart Zanone found Barton’s defence in no man’s land to slot past keeper Lewis Todd.

Rovers 4 Dunstable Town 0

Barton Rovers made comfortable progress to the second round of the Southern League Cup after a comprehensive victory over Dunstable Town on Tuesday night. Visiting manager Tony Fontenelle made a number of changes, including the return of keeper Jamie Head, who made three magnificent point blank saves, while Rovers included a number of ex-Blues, including Danny Hutchins, Connor Calcutt and Jason Blackett. The hosts began better as Hutchins shot wide, with Dunstable’s chances falling to Kelvin Bossman, who saw keeper Aaron Fulton quickly off his line. Rovers’ Bamford fired over the top, while Blackett’s effort drew a decent save from Head, before the Town custodian made a fine double stop to k

Aylesbury United 0 Rovers 1

Barton Rovers topped off a great week for the club on Saturday with a narrow 1-0 victory at Aylesbury United to make it eight league games unbeaten. In a cagey game, both sides started slowly as Connor Calcutt could have found the net on the half hour mark but watched the home defence scramble his shot clear. At the other end Josh Baines’ shot was comfortably gathered by Rovers keeper Lewis Todd to keep the game goalless. However, the deadlock was broken just before half time when ex-Luton Town youngster Charlie Smith tapped home a parried Rod Orlando-Young shot to give the visitors the lead. The heavens opened in the second half making conditions more adept to canoeing than quality football
