  1. Did you see the letter signed by 65 clubs sent to the FA asking them to reconsider? I can't see the FA changing their minds now, given other wheels have already been put in motion as a result, but it was interesting that more than 50 of the 65 were clubs in the top 4 positions of their league... And ironic that it's being led by South Shields, who for years refused promotion!
  2. So that's that then. Start again next season. Seems harsh on Jersey, but could the league promote them under the guise of evening the numbers in the Prem?
  3. All matches suspended for two weeks from tomorrow. A couple of games off today, but most go ahead.
  4. Knaphill are the best side I've seen, but given yesterday's result, I'll go for Southall to win it and Knaphill to finish runners up. Can all six go up with their grounds?
  5. The young Rancheros are an impressive side. I saw them comfortably dispatch Hampton & Richmond 3-0 and they'll give Wimbledon a good game.
  6. I'd be surprised if SCR and Abbey aren't in the mix again. It depends what Egham and Molesey have recruited/lost as to whether they are good enough to bounce back.
  7. The better, more credible, referees will use it as a threat, only using it when really necessary. The lesser referees will be sinbinning left, right and centre. Footy Mad - it only gets complicated if the same players is penalised for dissent twice. Otherwise everything is as is - two yellows = red, and dissent before or after a yellow card is still only a 10 min sinbin. Two dissents = two periods of 10 mins in the sinbin, unable to rejoin after the second, but can be replaced by a sub However, if that player has been cautioned as well, on receiving a second sinbin for dissent, they are unable to return and can't be subbed, so are essentially sent off (although a red card will not be shown). Hope that helps!
  8. Casuals ground is pretty much where the athletics track on the Xcel site is now. Walton & Hersham's Stompond Lane was sold by the council for housing yes...
  9. Good showing from SCR. 2-2 in 90 minutes, but Walton's extra fitness and a bit of quality saw them win 4-2 in extra time. Cracking final.
  10. Sutton Common Rovers v Walton Casuals, 3pm today at Gander Green Lane. Should be an interesting game.
  11. Maybe the league sees a chance to boost the income from fines... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47720839
  12. And good look to referees having to manage multiple sinbins at the same time - they're going to need a fourth official!
  13. If Chertsey thought Irlam was a long way...
  14. Abbey lost 3-1 after taking the lead and Chertsey have to replay this Saturday after snow caused Saturday's game to be postponed. A couple of reports on Abbey's game here: https://www.kentonline.co.uk/dartford/sport/report-crays-fa-vase-glory-198156/ http://www.kentsportsnews.com/cray-valley-pm-3-1-abbey-valley-02-02-2019/
  15. This was a game Horley deservedly won, however Walton & Hersham's centre forward James Robertson will be wondering how he didn't at least make the game closer and really should have helped his side to at least a share of the points. Horley scored in the third minute when Lewis Taylor struck a shot from 35 yards which swerved wickedly, finding the far corner of the net, even though the Walton keeper got a hand to it. Horley were comfortable for the rest of the first half, although Portuguese midfielder Didi Castanho showed some nice touches for Walton. Unfortunately for him and his team, he had few options in front of him, so Walton created very little. Walton looked more determined after half-time, but the tie looked to be effectively ended when Russell Harvey made it two after Walton failed to clear a Horley free kick. Giving credit to Walton, they didn't give up and having complained to his teammates about a lack of service, Robertson stirred them into action, only to hold his head in his hands. Twice Walton got down the right wing, delivered excellent crosses to find Roberston no more than 8 yards out with a free header on goal, only for the striker to fail to hit the target both times. And to justify the belief that bad things come in threes, when a ball fell to him 12 yards out, asking to be smacked goalwards, he once again found the fence of the ground, rather than the target. Anything but three points would have been harsh on Horley, but they will want to prevent those slip-ups which better sides will punish them for. Walton & Hersham look like a side that is still getting to know each other with so many changes this season, but there are reasons for hope. However, they need to start taking their chances to pick up points sooner rather than later.
