    Savagebee - Further to the spat between Berkhamsted FC and Berkhamsted Raiders, this article explains more. Raiders Chairman Keith Pollard stated at the time that 'It was not a takeover of Berkhamsted FC' but that's exactly what it was and the Club would have had to drop down the Pyramid as the proposed new facilities would not have met Step 4 criteria, they now sit proudly at the summit of the Southern League Division 1 Central with the distinct possibility of promotion to Step 3 next season:

    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.  


  2. Well somebody had to start this thread sooner or later...

     

    With London Colney falling apart, Hertford going up and a lot of upheaval at Cockfosters, we seem to have lost our top 3.

     

    Was all very close behind them last season.

     

    If Hoddesdon can keep their team together, they should do well. Wether they have or can resolve the ground issue of last year is another matter.

     

    Welwyn seem to be building a Spartan All Star team. If the players buy into it and play for the club, rather than their modest travel expenses, they should do well.

     

    Berko will surely mount their perennial challenge and seem to be setting themselves up for it nicely off the pitch at least.

     

    Despite Wembley and Tring leading the chasing pack last season, I'm not particularly convinced by either.

    Wembley were fantastic on a good day, but went off the back of a win at Welwyn to home losses to Edgware and Hadley to beating London Colney away.

     

    Biggleswade could finally start to live up to all of the off the pitch hype.

    Can see Edgware and Leighton making big improvements on last season.

     

    Could well be the most open season in a long time.

     

    Sorry for rambling. I'll make actual predictions when some dust starts settling.

     

     

    You predicted well, can I have tonights winning lottery numbers?


  3. 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!)


  4. 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!


  5. 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


  6. 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!


  7. 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.


  8. 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.


  9. Absolute disgrace. Have seen many great games between us and Sun over the years and they will be sadly missed. Unfortunately there are too many non football people meddling with grass roots football nowadays.

     

    At Berkhamsted the board are still trying to fend off such people that want to turn our home into a totally unsuitable unfit for purpose astroturf monstrosity.
