  1. It is a bit of a shame that the two sides from the Spartan drew each other. But it should be a great tie and might mean a bumper attendance. The atmosphere and turn out on Saturday at Bell Close was amazing. Eastbourne look to be a good side so it was no mean feat knocking them out. The next round will be a very tough tie to call. In a recent league game a 2-2 draw ended up being the final result after Leighton were leading 2-0
  2. The Fort William documentary is brilliant, some of the travelling those players do is unreal. Especially when they get walloped The Ollie Bayliss show is also a good listen On another note, I hope people have seen the Twitter video of Danny Webb’s free kick against Tring at the weekend. It has gone “viral” with 168k views and counting. Only partially due to the on screen finger pointing out the top corner it is due to hit!
  3. Colney Heath still looking like favourites but with 9 games for them in November consistency may be a challenge. Looking at their upcoming league fixtures they are all very winnable. Will be interesting to see what position they are in when they go to Newport on 10th December. Keeping Jon Clements fit will be key. I played against him in a Sunday league game recently and he seems to be able to find the bottom corner from anywhere in the box
  4. Leighton are on fire at the moment, the run of home games is helping. Danny Webb is a class above and surprised he isn’t playing at a higher level. He has 16 goals from 24 games and plays as a winger. He’s that quick he runs on to his own flick ons! Interesting interview with Joe Sweeney on the BBC 3 counties non league podcast. He sounds frustrated about the start to the league season and effectively targeting cups now
  5. Pretty much the same squad of players. It’s certainly helped playing some of the strugglers in the league. From what I can gather London Colney are going through a bit of a tough time, possibly some financial benefactors pulling out and being forced to play inexperienced players. At the top of the table it’s already starting to look like Colney Heath may end up champions
  6. Leighton Town finally piecing some wins together and I expect them to climb the table now. They have a handful of home games coming up that are all very winnable. North Greenford have been struggling at this level for a few seasons and you’d think this year they will go down. I’d expect Baldock Town to improve at some point as well Any reason why Lojboit left Newport? He has scored some great goals this season
  7. Surprised to see my team Leighton languishing 2nd bottom without a win. They have another tough looking fixture away at Biggleswade tonight. The squad looks competitive and has some proven talent. Some of the cup results show they are capable as well. The problem is that any league title challenge is now effectively over in early October. Managers do not tend to be given much time at a Bell Close so a few more mad results and I can see Joe Sweeney leaving
  8. Seems a great appointment considering he recently won the league with London Colney. Did he end up leaving after Colney following their refusal to take promotion? And has he managed since?
  9. The Leighton Town manager Danny Nicholls resigned after the latest loss above. Not surprising given the start to the season and standard of football played. It seems virtually all of the successful FA Vase squad has left from last season. I expected Nicholls to complement the squad with his own contacts from his varied career but this hasn’t transpired. His experience suggested a good team would be built. Interested to know who may know be in the frame for the job?
  10. At the game today and it looks like Leighton could be in for a struggle this season, which is a big shame after the success of last. The new additions lack the necessary quality and a real lack of presence up front. RWB were a very average side, went down to 10 men with 20 minutes left but still looked the most likely to score. The new manager, Danny Nicholls, looks to have a good CV but haven’t seen a great deal to be impressed with so far. Only 1 goal in 3 games. Let’s hope things improve
  11. Hope I’m proved wrong but it’s all fairly quiet from Leighton Town at the moment. A number of players lost from last season and they have not been replaced with the same quality. Very little from the new manager Danny Nicholls either. His son has been signed up and is now captain. At any level of football that always worries me a bit
  12. I'd be interested to know why they have folded, it's a shame as they are a long established club. Bicknell managed Leighton and after he left there was a difficult phase where a squad didn't really exist. Padbury also folded the season after he left and Ampthill were relegated after a disastrous season following his move. Seems to be a problem if an entire squad plays for a manager rather than a club. I personally prefer it when players have an attachment to the local community
  13. Leighton Town got walloped 6-1 by Winslow last night. Judging by Winslow's pre season results to date they will be in for a good season. Leighton also lost in the previous game to Totternhoe 4-3, perhaps the defence needs working on?
  14. AFC Southgate appear to be a well run club judging by their website. A youth team becoming senior is a complete unknown but could be successful. Good example being Biggleswade FC in Div 1 last season
