We have a lad Jack Barham from Greenwich Boro (Gary Alexanders side) play for our u23's yesterday. Very highly rated, 21 years old and scoring goals for fun at that level, only short at 5ft 9 but will out jump 6ft + defenders for headers.

That Lex Allen we were looking at from Sittingbourne is with Norwich this week for a week long trial.


Yes Jack Barnham played in u23's v Coventry
game finished 0-0

Did he score?

Out-jumping overweight 6ft part-time defenders in the lowest rung of Isthmian League (southern section) is a very different proposition to out-jumping professional 6ft defenders in the Championship...


Really? What because they play non league they cant jump? The point highlights the fact the kid has a good spring on him, given the right coaching that may also improve to accommodate for the more cultured defenders he'd face.

By the way, there's ex premier league defenders in the Isthmian



Bex, not sure how much Isthmian football you see in a season, but over the last couple of years I've seen a lot. In both the Premier and Div 1 South.

Last season the hottest property among the strikers was Charlie Penney - until he injured his cruciate while knocking out Ebbsfleet, now of the Conference (if you know what I mean). Yet he never got a look in while with Millwall.

Merstham this season have Ryan Hall playing up front for them. I remember seeing him play for Leeds at The Den back in 2012. He's the same age as Gregory. Yes, there is talent there.

But I have also seen the defenders of many a Div 1 South side. And for every ex-Premier you might find in there, you'll find 50 who are, to put it mildly, pretty static. You just can't compare Div 1 South Isthmian League to the Championship in terms of quality.




I probably see circa 30 Isthmian games a season

Charlie Penny had good movement, I was impressed when I saw him in a friendly against Dulwich.

Well, playing centre back for Greenwich Boro at the moment is Mark Phillips.




Oddly enough, Bex, it was Mark Phillips who Charlie destroyed when Merstham played Ebbsfleet in the FA Cup last season...!!!




Interesting as Mark is solid at national league level, but obviously getting on a bit now,

Whiskey Merstham lost to Sittingbourne in the cup this week, Lex Allen on the bench, currently the fourth best centre half at the club!

Indeed. I hear that Merstham were very poor at Sittingbourne and little better in the replay.

To be fair, the gaffer at Bourne is doing a good job. Allen lost his place (I think due to being away on trials) someone came in, team performed well and player kept his place - novel idea that

Credit due to Sittingbourne who totally outplayed them at in the replay, in fact have knocked them out of two competitions, Merstham didn't have a shot in the replay.

Lex got a break when one of the Centre Backs got injured at Lewes, did very well to be fair, but three others in front of him at the moment, Bourne unbeaten in 11 games during which they have conceded 3 goals with Lex hardly having a kick. 3 of those games against Merstham, nilled them twice, Ryman Prem side.
