  6. Many congratulations to Dunstable Town for lifting the SSML Sportsmanship Award this season, as voted by Match Officials, presumably PetetheGreek voted for them then and not New Salamis:

  10. Oh ye of little faith! Any minute now, Andy, we'll discover that Lovely Stuff is in fact Joe Thwaite - winner of the £184m Euromillions jackpot - who has decided to provide Andy with a £10m 'war chest' this summer!
  11. This week's other Non League Show previewing the FA Vase FinaI between Littlehampton Town and Newport PagneII Town: The Non League Football Show / 20th May 2022 - Non League Finals, Littlehampton Town & Boston United (audioboom.com) A busy week in non league so we start with the Non League paper round-up. Jon Couch helps go through a vast array of stuff including the FA Trophy final, the FA Vase final and the National League Play-Offs which get underway on Monday. Before all that though on Saturday its the National League Step 2 play-off finals as we find out who will join Gateshead and Maidstone United in promotion to the top tier for next season. Plus we chat about some of the many managerial changes and swaps that have happened this week. Phil Annets gives us the stats on the FA Vase Final with his @FAVaseFactFile hat on and next up is a Chairman of one of those club’s in Sunday's final. Sounding relaxed and ready, Rob McAlees is the kind of Chairman you would think most managers and players would want to work under, they clearly do, as his joint management team seem on point and firmly part of the club and the thriving community at Littlehampton Town hoping to make further history this season. Back on the show for the second time this season is a manager involved in one of those play-off finals on Saturday, he’s switched clubs since we last spoke and got his new club into the play-offs making history already and now is one game from leading the club to a return to the top level of non league football. Paul Cox has had the necessary impact on Boston United since his arrival in January and with plenty of success and experience on his CV he is confident of a result but also has his feet firmly grounded.
  12. This type of thread will go the same way as last years, the year before and the year before that. Other clubs signing up players. What is ETFC doing? Waiting, not playing it’s hand, etc, etc.
  13. Interesting to note that Bishops Stortford have already signed-up most of their squad from last season, Lewes have secured the services of their front 3 once again (including the prolific Joe Taylor), and Hornchurch's Tom Wraight has committed for next season. We, meanwhile, will no doubt have to wait until the last of the friendlies to see who has signed-on for next term. Fingers crossed that Andy, Mario etc have been able to identify some fresh exciting talent for next season...?
  14. Earlier
  15. There is a God then, York City beat Boston United 2-0 this afternoon in the National League North Play-Off FinaI at the York Community Stadium which Karen wiII know weII, that wiII teach Professor Jonathan Van-Tam for what he put us aII through for two years during Covid: FA Cup: Prof Jonathan Van-Tam on his 50-year love affair with Boston United - BBC Sport
  16. 16/07/22 Cockfosters v Northwood (KO 3PM)
  17. Where do they play there home games these days?
  18. Savagebee - Welcome back, where have you been hiding. I believe London Tigers get money thrown, sorry, chucked at them left, right and centre by Local Councils and various other organisations within their wide catchment area, the Club is a registerred Charity and they have some good fund raisers onboard who know all the tricks of the trade: https://www.londontigers.org/
  19. 😮 How do London Tigers FC continue to survive in that league? 😮
  20. Scored 10 goals in 29 games for promoted Southall FC.
  21. 😮 You will never please everyone as they say.
  22. Will play pre season home games at there former ground in Brentford I believe.
  23. Just stumbled across this on Twitter , potentially a move for Jerry into NLS? Won’t be surprised if him and few others look to go higher . We need to try keep a hold of our players
  24. My understanding from afar is that too many players moving on to other clubs and Uni etc and the managers felt they may not get a competitive side together so did the right thing and made the decision early. It’s a shame but a club like Winslow lives year to year, until someone wants to put in stupid budget like some other clubs. I believe there has been some interesting applications already.
  25. Wow! There's some pretty good goals there, will be interesting to see who comes out top
  26. The HFCSA Membership will not be on sale until our first home pre-season match. In regards to the season tickets, I would imagine they would be on sale in pre-season.
  27. When will we be able to come down and renew our season tickets and also our membership how much will they both cost this season ????
