  1. This fixture seems to have fallen off everyones radar...... Herts Senior Cup Leverstock Green v Hitchin Town
  2. As someone directly involved in this 2 year dispute I can categorically confirm it was an underhanded attempt to takeover Berkhamsted FC's ground and trust me he more than met his match and went away with his tail firmly between his legs.
  3. Berkhamsted FC as assistant to first team manager Steve Bateman. Excellent appointment.
  4. You predicted well, can I have tonights winning lottery numbers?
  5. Berkhamsted will be promoted if they better Leighton Town's result this Saturday. Well deserved too, they have been a joy to watch all season.
  6. Things have just simply moved on. Twitter is by far the best platform to get all the latest info and gossip about our league and teams. If I just take the club I follow, there are regular daily updates from the main club twitter plus lots of tweets from the chairman, one of the directors, the manager and some of the players. There is just no other platform (including this) that can compete with that. The only way a forum like this beats twitter is to have discussions about a certain topic (like this one!)
  7. Berkhamsted 5-5 Leverstock Green Incredible free scoring Dacorum Derby last night in front of 157 spectators. Both teams didn't deserve to lose but great advert for the league. According to my maths and the programme that is 97 league goals Berko have scored this season with still 5 games to go!
  8. So poor that Berkhamsted are the only step 5 club in the entire country that are still unbeaten in the league. Of the 14 step 5 leagues 10% of our clubs are still in the FA Vase and 2 at least will be in the last 32. Seriously with mood hoovers like some of you around it makes me wonder why you follow football at our level. FFS get behind our clubs, our league this season are producing some great clubs and football that is a joy to watch
  9. What are people's opinions now given we are a third of the way into the season? Obviously I have Berkhamsted tinted glasses on so won't comment on the team I support but been very impressed with Harpenden Town, Biggleswade FC, and Leighton Town this season. We don't play WGC until 16th December but that appears on current form to be between the sides that may win the league. I know Adam at WGC creates much discussion at times but speak as I find I think he is doing a great job and cannot wait for our meetings later in the season. Colney Heath finding form now and will be an interesting game against WGC on Saturday. Shout out to Crawley Green in recent weeks who drew with us and ran WGC very close last night. He might have quit the manager's job but Deano Bull is quite the keeper!
  10. Neither did we until the 93rd minute! Only 1 of 3 step 5 clubs in the whole country still unbeaten though.
  11. Biggleswade FC 2-3 Berkhamsted Fantastic match away to 2nd place Biggleswade and a great comeback from 2-0 down to win 2-3. Tremendous away support including our youngsters with their flags and drums. Great advert for the Premier League and Berkhamsted remain unbeaten in the league and 3 points clear now at the top.
  12. What do our team have to do other than have the longest unbeaten league run in the country? :-)
  13. There is also a friendly for those in the area between Berkhamsted and Chesham Utd at the Broadwater Stadium. Kick off 7.45pm.
  14. Strange comment? From what I see on the sidelines is a well run side by unpaid volunteers trying their best to give the community a football team they can enjoy with good facilities. I'm an elderly gentleman who lives close and several of us go to each home game and certainly recently the team and football club have given me much enjoyment on a Saturday afternoon.
  15. That idea could not be any far apart than it is right now after Raiders tried a hostile takeover of the senior clubs ground in the summer without consent or permission. Berkhamsted FC have actually started a youth team set up of their own from this season and in a pre season friendly last night won 9-3! Saw on twitter the players have their own names on their backs with a new kit, sponsorship deal, and full use of the senior clubs facilities so looks like they are taking the youth team very seriously.
  16. You could say that! From what I have been told by board members Raiders approached the landlords behind Berkhamsted FCs backs in the summer wanting to take over the ground. Berkhamsted FCs board quite rightly apposed this and have been given an extended lease until at least 2019. Unfortunately for Raiders, Berkhamsted FC doubled the size of it's board in the last 12 months to 10 I think so they have picked on the club at the wrong time! Two of them are also qualified lawyers I understand which helps their cause! This season they also have 2 adult teams, a new youth team and new ladies team which will strengthen their position.
  17. Here here. Well done Karen, I for one could never do the hard job you do. The previous poster started mentioning miles to grounds and included Tring. I assume his rocket science did not detect Tring to Berkhamsted is just 3 miles apart so why would that not be the natural local derby over Christmas and Easter!! The bottom line is Stotfold like Leighton are on the geographical edges of our division so will dip out on festive games.
  18. Following today's excellent 3-3 draw at home to Southern Premier League side Chesham Utd, Berkhamsted FC signed 14 players in one afternoon according to their official twitter page. Have to say, as a spectator today they looked really good in front of a healthy crowd of 141 with plenty of good new players on display. New Manager Steve Bateman obviously has great connections from managing at a higher level but being a Berko boy he clearly feels he wants to achieve the same at his home town club.
  19. Berkhamsted 3-3 Chesham Utd Fantastic result and performance from Berkhamsted against our Southern League Premier Division neighbours that are 2 divisions higher than us. Played in front of 141 spectators too!
  20. Great news, thank you Karen. Just good for us clubs to get these advertised as soon as possible.
  21. Hi Karen Would you be able to produce just the opening weekend fixtures any sooner than 19th July now that the Southern League fixtures are out?
  22. Thanks for the update Karen, much appreciated.
  23. I have no idea I'm not close enough to that side of things. I assume the council?
  24. For those that don't know there has been a bit in the local press over the last few weeks about Berkhamsted Raiders having the audacity to try and effectively take over the Broadwater Stadium and turn it into a 3G pitch with 24/7 usage. This on the face of it sounds like it would make the senior side Berkhamsted FC a mere pawn in the whole scheme of things and not running their own side at the ground there that they have done since the early 1900's. I've been a Berkhamsted fan ever since my Dad took me when I was 6 years old and as a family we've lived in the town for as long as I know. As a club now and previously as Berkhamsted Town we have an extremely proud history with the highlight being when the whole town shut down in 2001 to attend the FA Vase Final under the current new manager Steve Bateman. To now hear they have effectively been promoted 2 divisions despite folding their side last season would make my Dad and Grandad turn in their graves. This season especially as a 60ish year old fan has been one of my best in recent memory and attendances looked the best for many years. Chairman Steve and other board members greet you by person and Saturday afternoons there are the highlight of my week.
