    Right it’s the FA Trophy Special - Basildon A few of us are meeting a couple of people and drinking in Wickford before the game and getting a cab to the ground. The pub we will be drinking in is called the Duke We are looking to get the 11.59 from Shenfield which arrives at 12.11 If you are going from Romford then get the 11.36 which arrives at Shenfield at 11.53. If you are picking it up from Harold Wood then you can get the same train at 11.43. I would say meet at the station 10 mins before. I’ll be going from Harold Wood

    FA Vase 3rd Round draw

    Southall drawn away to Deal Town, who play in the same league as Tunbridge Wells who we beat in the 1st Round. Deal won the vase in 2000 Should be a great game

    Its the handful of fans that will suffer as its only going to attract those plastic fans which Billericay have got. Money attracts and so does a cup run, just look at the crowd Maldon got against Leyton. They hardly get passed 150 for a normal league game. But what goes around will come around!

    Agreed. The magazines I used to buy are pretty much redundant now, due to the rise of websites such as PornHub...

    Yes - I know Baby Jago has transgressed the rules by inserting blank lines. I've had a word but feel an official warning is a little unfair on the wee lad (plus I'm scared of him - he's got that red-head temper thing). So he's had a pre-warning only. I now await accusations of favouritism and nepotism from Mr One in Ten * 50,000 (Dinamo) and his sidekick, Hatted Tightwad. * That's a rather good 1980's Midlands reference for us old boys and frankly I deserve a "like". Please note - this line feed business only seems to happen when you use Chrome on iPads (or maybe other tablets)- which is what B.Jago used (and Blackballed a few weeks ago) so please take care with that particular combination. What's wrong with Safari anyway? Enough wittering - here are the correct scores : THE WIZZZARDS Bayern Munich 2-1 B. Dortmund Leicester 1-2 The Arse Burnley Clarets 1-1 West Ham Blues England Ladies 1-2 Germany Damen Basildon 0-3 Urchins Att: 161

    Brentwood 2 Hornchurch 4

    Not a very pretty game and another slow start before going behind. A wonder strike from Saunders to equalise shortly after the break. Dickson breaks through, shot parried but Dickson first to the ball to tap home for the lead. Dickson then bringing the ball forwards and being urged to pass but shoots, keeper gets a hand but can't keep ball out. Dickson once more looking for his hat-trick and again parried by the keeper but this time Ronnie Winn on hand to tap home from tight angle. Naughty Urchins behind the goal start singing "3 assists, the keeper has got 3 assists". Best chant I've heard in a long time - naughty Urchins. Final few minutes and a consolation for Brentwood before Hornchurch manage the game to the end.
