Prescot Cables 2 Goole 2

Prescot Cables 2 Goole AFC 2 (25th March 2017) This doesn’t sound the most attractive fixture. Prescot Cables sounds like a factory team who should be playing parks football against the Stag & Hounds 2nd XI on a Sunday morning. … Continue reading

Blyth Spartans 4 Skelmersdale 0

Blyth Spartans 4 Skelmersdale United 0 (18th March 2017) I am well aware that travelling around the country to watch semi-professional football matches between two teams I don’t support in any way, is a little bit nuts, but when you … Continue reading

Banbury 2 Cambridge City 0

Banbury United 2 Cambridge City 0 (5th February 2017) Although it’s taken an awfully long time to get round to coming here, Banbury’s was one of the first non-league grounds I ever saw. I certainly would have seen Wokingham Town’s … Continue reading

Bognor Regis 1 Enfield 1

Bognor Regis Town 1 Enfield 1 (14th Jan 2017) I’ve had better organised football trips. I was planning to go to Brackley v Stockport, until a Saturday morning check of the state of their pitch revealed the fixtures site I’d … Continue reading

Altrincham 0 Gloucester 1

Altrincham 0 Gloucester City 1 (7th Jan 2017) It may sound weird to say it, but it wasn’t really the lure of watching a cup tie at Old Trafford that tempted me to venture up to Greater Manchester. It was … Continue reading

Weymouth 2 Dorchester 1

Weymouth 2 Dorchester Town 1 (29th August 2016) Oh I do like to be beside the seaside… …and sadly so does everyone else on a warm Bank Holiday Monday. Plans to have a leisurely afternoon at the front, perhaps with … Continue reading

Rot-Weiss Oberhausen 0 Viktoria Köln 3

Rot-Weiss Oberhausen 0 Viktoria Köln 3 (12th December 2015) There can’t be too many tourists who visit Oberhausen. Obviously I wasn’t there for the Gasometer, converted into an exhibition space (shut) or even the New Centre and its Christmas market, … Continue reading

Halifax 2 Guiseley 2

Halifax Town 2 Guiseley 2 (24th October 2015) Ever since I got into football as a kid, there was a curiously appealing “anti-glamour” about Halifax Town. The club seemed to be the absolute distillation of 4th Division obscurity. Even TV … Continue reading

Glossop 1 Witton 0

Glossop North End 1 Witton Albion 0 (5th September 2015) After the exotic glamour of football in Japan, it was back to England and the Northern Premier League’s 1st Division north. It was somewhere I’d fancied going though, not so … Continue reading
