We don't - all in jest - but we should always play long ball against Tilbury and anyone else who has a ploughed field for a pitch doh

you have to play long ball on sudbury's pitch 4
starters it was waterlogged on the wings , damp
and it is basically a plowed field.

No - wasn't able to go today frown but from what I seem to remember someone mentioned some time ago that they had quite a decent pitch -- not sure about the ground as a whole however.

Pitch wasn't the greatest but have certainly seen far worse this season. Did what we needed to do today. Wasn't pretty but never looked like losing the three points today.

Their keeper made some good saves and Dobbo had one cleared off the line so could have won by quite a few. Ricky went off with an injury just before the end so don't know how serious it was. Looked like he had injured his hand.

Didn't think the crowd looked as many as 161 today. I thought around 115, with around 80, 90 making the trip from Canvey.

Nearly didn't make it as our coach conked out on the A127 so had to wait until we got a replacement. Eventually got to Flackwell Heath around 1.30pm after leaving at 11am!!!

Good support today as usual from the Yellow Army.

Good result today - well done everyone.

Bet that was a big problem with the coach braking down - bet the beer supplies were running low smile

A good win on a very poor pitch eek Flackwell Heath are bottom of the division but they are certainly not the worst side i`ve seen this season.

Hello chaps, sorry its a bit late, but I thought it was a real workmanlike performance at Flackwell Heath. Yes we have at last learned to get stuck into these lower sides on their ploughed field pitches and grind out a result. I dont know if I am enjoying this season or not, I know this is a new start for us but I would luv to see us back at Ryman Premier level, I think the fans deserve it and the players are capable via the play-offs, its all about belief and Saturdays performance shows we can do it. Up The Gulls!
