  5. I believe he was much better than tweedle dee and tweedle dumb currently in charge.
  6. Yet another album unearthed, and better still, to those posted earlier with nearly 400 photographs from the nail biting Leighton Town v 1874 Northwich FA Vase Sixth Round tie at Bell Close on 24 February 2018 which 1874 Northwich won 1-0:
  7. An interesting Forum page on who is issuing at present and who isn't with the SSML included, Club's who didn't issue prior to the lockdown and who won't be after 2 December will lose money as groundhoppers won't touch them with a barge poll: Step 7 down.

  8. The recently published Berkhamsted Living Magazine for Winter 2020 and guess who feature heavily, the Club never miss an opportunity for self publicity: Berkhamsted Living Magazine - Winter 2020 by Magazine - issuu
  9. Photographs from back in the day, and prior to the upgrade of the John Clements Memorial Ground, Codicote v Sandridge Rovers in a Herts Senior County League Premier Division fixture on Saturday 14 April 2007, Sandridge Rovers won 3-1:
  10. A brief FA statement following today's announcement from the UK Government Today the government announced new rules which should allow spectators to attend live sport once the second lockdown ends. We are, however, still short on detail, which will be further discussed between our governing body and the Department for Digital, Media, Culture and Sport. In response, the FA have released the following statement: 'We welcome the UK Government’s announcement today and we are very pleased that organised sports, which include Steps 3-6 of the National League System [NLS], Tiers 3-6 of the Women’s Football Pyramid [WFP] and competitive grassroots football, can look forward to resuming from 2nd December. We are also delighted to see the beginning of the safe return of fans in stadiums for elite sports events and confirmation that spectators at non-elite sports will be able to attend events in line with Covid-secure guidance for each tier. without 2 players playing for welling now in lockdown
  11. Maybe. Says on the Oxhey Jets FC Twitter page that they got it from another Twitter page.
  12. GRS67 - Yes, I remember you had a very good Youth set around that time, were you at this FA Youth Cup First Qualifying Round tie with Enfield Town the following 2007/08 season, on Wednesday 10 October 2007 athe White Lion Ground, Enfield Town won 3-0:
  13. I’d like to be considered if we are basing this not on achievements. I would like to see league goals to be honest.
  14. So Joes must have' lifted it' from there then. The list includes Cup goals so it's rather misleading, a Premier Division Club often draws a lowly Division Two Club in the First Round of the Challenge Trophy and their leading striker will score five or six in that one game alone without breaking sweat. Also, as well as the Challenge Trophy and Premier Division Cup, Oxhey Jets were in the FA Cup, FA Vase, Herts FA Charity Shield, Herts FA Senior Cup, and SSML Senior Floodlit Cup that season with Lewis Putman scoring in almost every game.
  15. Lockdown: Boris Johnson to give outdoor grassroots sport the all-clear to return from December 2 Outdoor sports to be permitted even in areas placed in high tiers under the government system; Prime Minister to announce plans to ease restrictions in the House of Commons; amateur sports have been suspended since November 5 Outdoor grassroots sport will be allowed to resume in England when the national lockdown ends. Prime Minister Boris Johnson will make a statement to the House of Commons this afternoon, outlining plans for a relaxation of restrictions from December 2. Outdoor sport for all ages will be permitted, even in areas most affected by the Government's Covid-19 tier system.
  16. 7 people guessed right even though it was 6 people up to a couple of hours ago 😂
  17. Obviously the so called 'Great One', Clement Temile, has to be right up there, not so much for his achievements but for the profile and huge prestige he brought to the SSML creating Worldwide publicity for the League. A former Nigeria International who was nicknamed 'the Cheetah' in his homeland for his incredible speed, some of you will no doubt recall that he was in line for the Nigeria National team Coach job following 1974 World Cup winner Berti Vogts departure in 2008 but just failed to get it, this was whilst he was with Kentish Town and took them to the Division One Championship that 2007/2008 season with Lee Scott, who idolised Clement, the Division's top goalscorer. All of that is just the tip of the iceberg as Clement is Father to former Israel International Toto Tamuz who settled in Israel from his native Nigeria and became an Israeli citizen , Israel came to Wembley in September 2007 to play England in a European Championship Qualifier and Clement was all over the National papers like a rash for weeks with the SSML always getting a mention in articles. Like I said, Clement didn't lift the domestic treble like Steve Newing and Del Deanus did at Edgware Town, or go unbeaten throughout a League season like duo Darren Croft and Paul Reeves at Dunstable Town in 2012/13, however in terms of the prestige and he brought with him then Clement has to be by far the best. This is the so called 'Great One' receiving an honourary award on the hallowed Cotlandswick turf on Saturday 3 May 2008 before the Division One Cup Final between Ampthill Town and Haringey Borough:
  18. It up indeed a fantastic season, as the club cleared up at the end of Season awards, to the extent that a SSML official was overhead to say "not again" as we rolled up to collect yet another award! The youth team also won the league that season.
  19. Yes, this is what I posted on the 'Keep The Banter Going' thread, Steve and Del were amazing weren't they and I believe you knew them well: I see this was a really popular thread that Daily Dose created back in May 2017, I wonder why it got no replies. You have to say that the most successful SSML Manager(s) were Steve Newing and Del Deanus at Edgware Town for lifting the domestic treble in 2006/07, no other team has ever achieved that. They also reached the Fourth Round of the FA Vase that season and were unlucky to lose 1-0 at The White Lion Ground to Sussex County League Whitehawk in a replay after a 1-1 draw in Brighton, GRS67 was at both ties as well as most, if not all, of the games that season:
  20. yes it does and lets hope they never met up with any town players too !!!!!!
  21. Next 1st team match View North Greenford Utd (1st team) v. Walsham Le Willows Sat. 5th December 2020 FA Vase (Second Round) Kick off: 3:00pm North Greenford United (home) Form Guide North Greenford Utd Walsham Le Willows L L W W L W L D W W Leading Scorer Joe Mills 5 Keiran Twinn 11 Match Preview This will be our biggest test in the Vase this season as Walsham are 6th in the Thurlow Nunn League with a record of Played 9, won 5, drew 1 and lost 3. They reached this round with wins over Hoddesden Town 5-1 and Sheringham 1-0. We at the moment are the joint 2nd top scorers in the cup this season with 14 goals with wins over Chalvey Sports 5-1, Oxhey Jets 3-1 and Sandhurst Town 6-2. Assistant Manager Gary Brown's thoughts ahead of the game. What a strange season it's been stop, start, but finally there's light at the end of the tunnel with a massive FA Vase game to kick the season back off. We have equalled the furthest the club has got in this great competion and playing some great football along the way. The boys will be ready for the game no doubt and with this young squad, if they turn up and play like they can they will be a match for anyone in the competition. Walsham will be a great test for us and I'm sure they will be up for the game too and let's hope its a good match. We have a fully fit side to chose from which we haven't had for the last month which is great for us because it gives us loads of options all over the park. Its a good distraction from the league and gives us a chance to showcase our young talent. We know Walsham are going to be a good test but if we play like we can I have total confidence we will get the result. Win, lose or draw, its nice for football to be back in these hard times, so let's enjoy it while we can. We wish our opponents a safe journey and good luck for the rest of the season in their League.
  22. Made it on to the Oxhey Jets FC Twitter page 😀 https://mobile.twitter.com/1972Jets/status/1328292126287941632
  23. An interesting signing. I've stuck that on the Brentford FC Forum.
  24. Tottenham have signed Colombia youth international Juan Pablo Gonzalez Velasco. The 17-year-old left Brentford's academy when it closed earlier this summer and has joined Tottenham's U18s group. The winger made his debut for Spurs in a 5-1 win over Aston Villa at Hotspur Way at the weekend, coming on as a second-half substitute. Sky sources reported earlier this summer that Velasco had been on trial at Burnley and was also reportedly of interest to Chelsea, Southampton and Fulham's academies. Spurs are keen to add promising talent to their academy and manager Mauricio Pochettino is noted for bringing young players through the ranks.
  25. Edgware Town are delighted to announce the signing of Colombian full-back Juan Pablo Velasco, who played for Pirin Blagoevgrad last season in the Bulgarian 2nd Division and previously for Club Deportivo Lugo in Spain. As a youth team player Juan came through the academies of Brentford and Tottenham.
  26. Funny enough that was one of the only games I didn't attend that season, I think I attended close to 50 +, what a season that was. Can you put the link to your post on Steve and Del here so I can read it please 👍
