Grantham 4 Barwell 1

Grantham Town 4 Barwell 1 (24th March 2018) A modern ground, based around an athletics track, located on an industrial estate…it didn’t sound too promising, but it was OK actually. I could hardly complain. It was my choice, after all, … Continue reading

Ossett Albion 3 Clitheroe 0

Ossett Albion 3 Clitheroe 0 (17th March 2018) Bloody cold – that’s the main summary of yesterday’s day out. Braving “snow-mageddon” weather forecasts and newspaper headlines, which all but predicted the start of a new ice age, with polar bears … Continue reading

Faversham 2 Molesey 1

Faversham Town 2 Molesey 1 (13th January 2018) A late change of plan, mainly due to lethargy and not fancying a long trip up to Ilkeston on a dull and grey day, had me switching to the significantly shorter option … Continue reading

Totton 0 Taunton 4

AFC Totton 0 Taunton Town 4 (6th January 2018) The cold and a touch of laziness dictated that Totton, about an hour away by car, was about as far as I fancied going this day. A visit to Totton’s ground … Continue reading

Aveley 1 Grays 1

Aveley 1 Grays Athletic 1 (26th December 2017) Only 15 miles separate Aveley from Billericay’s ground that had been our noon kick-off venue, but the prospect of Boxing Day sales traffic at the nearby Thurrock Lakeside shopping mall meant a … Continue reading

Billericay 1 Thurrock 0

Billericay Town 1 Thurrock 0 (26th December 2017) Another Boxing Day, another double-header, this time in Essex, around the other side of the M25. I’d been to Billericay before, but since then the ground has been completely rebuilt, and the … Continue reading

Carshalton 1 Ramsgate 1

Carshalton Athletic 1 Ramsgate 1 (22nd October 2016) With the demographic of non-league football fans skewed towards men with grey or very little hair, and small grandchildren asking how long until they can go home, it doesn’t seem the most … Continue reading

Basingstoke 2 Staines 1

Basingstoke 2 Staines 1 (29/10/2011) This wasn’t my first visit to Basingstoke’s Camrose ground. I’d seen Reading play an utterly dire pre-season friendly in the late 90s, and a much more promising resounding reserve victory a few years ago, but … Continue reading

Maidenhead 4 Woking 1

Maidenhead United 4 Woking 1 (15/10/2012) Maidenhead’s York Road is the longest continually used football ground in the world, being Maidenhead’s home since 1871. There are one or two other claims about, but Maidenhead’s is recognised officially by FIFA. Given … Continue reading

Staines 2 Thurrock 3

Staines 2 Thurrock 3 (03/09/2011) I may be a jinx to Bracknell Town, but I seem to be something of a lucky charm as far as Thurrock are concerned. Only twice have they avoided defeat this season, both times away, … Continue reading
