Re: Brackley away 14/9/21

Might be a bit late now, but does anyone know if there’s availability on the Supporters Coach for the game tonight? Wasn’t gonna go, but decided I fancy it now. Cheers!

Erm is this the player some supporters (and DJ) helped fund his operation?

Re: Players on trial

Just wondered if anyone knows who was at the 1st pre season training, only one I recognised was Ty O’Neill which would be quite delectable if we somehow got him in. Also for a bit of fun I’m gonna guess that the following are on trial/in talks to sign (I am fully aware that 95% are most likely wron...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Really looking forward to this match, not least because of all the mess the league has created over the past few months, a time now just to concentrate on the football. Anyone know how our injured players are getting on? Hopefully Magurie and McMahon are going to be fit. Had a look at Hornchurch pl...

Re: Shorter games ?

Don't agree,there have always been technically gifted players but they are, I'm sure fitter now.

Real tough players abounded and ...

What about the goal that never was against Hull city in the FA cup that resulted in a total four replays five games in total. before going down at Ayesome Park.

Interesting "explanation" by AA as to why our keepers sometimes kick the ball out for a throw in.

Whilst the odds on us winning the ball in a heading dual are ...

Interesting article from the athletic (for those who subscribe at least) about this. Main takeaway is the lack of transparancy and responses from the National League.

Just love that photo of Wharton and the team from 1887.

No doubt hoops was the kit for the following year as voted for by the supporters in 1887.

In original series which started on telly in1957 the characters were as stated by some of us who can remember it.
Later series in colour in the 1970's had the characters names doctored.
