  1. Just starting a thread on Dunstable Town that can be used in future. I see from the local Dunstable press yesterday that the Club's former defender, Peter Kioso, has signed professionally for Luton Town, he had been at Hartlepool United since leaving Creasey Park but caught the eye of scouts from Kenilworth Road who paid an undisclosed fee to Hartlepool for him, I'm not sure whether Dunstable Town will see any of that money. Creasey Park appears to be somewhat of a breeding ground for talent with Nick Hayes joining Norwich City and Nathan Harness joining Charlton Athletic recently, the Club have been under achieving for many years now and who can ever forget George Best turning out for them in 1974 under then Manager Barry Fry: https://www.dunstabletoday.co.uk/sport/football/hatters/blues-thrilled-to-see-former-defender-kioso-join-luton-1-9210358 https://www.lutontown.co.uk/news/2020/january/peter-kioso-ifollow/ https://www.lutontown.co.uk/news/2020/january/peter-kioso/
  2. An interesting local press preview of this one tomorrow, I see that Leighton Town have unfortunately been deducted three points for mistakenly fielding an ineligible player in the game with Biggleswade United last month and the press article includes an apologetic Club statement about that: https://www.leightonbuzzardonline.co.uk/sport/football/leighton-town-still-have-everything-to-play-for-with-four-cups-and-22-more-league-games-1-9208423
  3. Ash Fuller, Dean Greygoose and Steve Kuhne have been handed the reins at Eynesbury Rovers by Chairman Matt Plumb: https://www.thenonleaguefootballpaper.com/latest-news/fa-competitions-more-news/28809/steve-kuhne-teams-up-in-new-triumvirate-at-eynesbury-rovers/ https://www.huntspost.co.uk/sport/football/steve-kuhne-ash-fuller-and-dean-greygoose-to-share-the-hall-road-hotseat-1-6474663 https://eynesburyrovers.co.uk/index.php/2020/01/20/club-statement/
  4. There is currently a thread on another Forum that appears to have set hares sprinting and a survey by a journalist/student proposing a new Non League Football magazine and how it should get off the ground. Some of you may wish to complete the survey which has unsurprisingly received some scepticism and criticism, it's probably unlikely the magazine will ever see the cold light of day: https://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/forums/index.php?threads/new-magazine.612/ Hi all. I'm a journalist and am in the process of creating a non-league football magazine, to help us decide on how the magazine will look/work I would really appreciate it if you could spare 10 minutes to fill out this survey. Thank you so much https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WVXFYJY
  5. Tomorrow's fixtures, it will be a sad day at each and every ground as we all think about Thiago Gonçalves: Saturday 25 January (kick off 3.00pm unless stated) Premier Division Arlesey Town v Colney Heath Aylesbury Vale Dynamos v Harefield United Biggleswade United v North Greenford United Dunstable Town v Oxhey Jets Edgware Town v Baldock Town Harpenden Town P Broadfields United Leighton Town v Wembley London Colney v Crawley Green Potton United v Leverstock Green Tring Athletic v Newport Pagnell Town Division One Ampthill Town v Enfield Borough Brimsdown v Park View Hillingdon Borough v Bedford London Lions v Rayners Lane London Tigers v FC Broxbourne Borough Milton Keynes Robins v New Salamis Shefford Town & Campton v Langford St Panteleimon P Winslow United Division Two MK Gallacticos v Old Bradwell United (kick off 2.00pm) New Bradwell St Peter v Berkhamsted Raiders (kick off 2.00pm) Sarratt v Unite MK (kick off 2.00pm) The 61 FC (Luton) v Pitstone & Ivinghoe (kick off 2.00pm) Division Two Cup Quarter Final Buckingham United v Tring Corinthians AFC (kick off 2.00pm) Bedfordshire FA Senior Trophy Semi Finals Stotfold v Biggleswade FC Reserves Totternhoe v Stevington (kick off 2.00pm)
  6. The two Semi Final ties take place tomorrow afternoon, Stevington currently head the Bedfordshire County League Premier Division, having not lost a league game all season, so Totternhoe will certainly not have it all their own way at the Recreation Ground. Stotfold also face a difficult task at Roker Park against Biggleswade FC Reserves however a repeat performance of their excellent 5-0 victory at Langford on Wednesday could possibly be enough to see off the Langford Road outfit: Semi Finals Totternhoe v Stevington (Sat 25 Jan, kick off 2.00) Stotfold v Biggleswade FC Reserves (Sat 25 Jan, kick off 3.00)
  7. Buckingham United entertain Tring Corinthians AFC tomorrow in the remaining Division Two Quarter Final tie and for the right to travel to holders Old Bradwell United in the Semi Final
  8. Saturday's game with Winslow United has rightly been called off:
  9. The minutes silence last night at the New Salamis v London Lions game:
  10. Who heard the Non League Show on Tuesday evening which featured Old Bradwell United as well as Hertford Town, Barton Rovers and Cheshunt, Hertford Town supremo Ben Herd was the co host on the show and good value: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07xzn5s
  11. I didn't realise that it was Baldock Town's sixth league win in succession last night: https://www.hertsad.co.uk/sport/football/baldock-town-v-colney-heath-match-report-1-6478763?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social_Icon&utm_campaign=in_article_social_icons https://www.thecomet.net/sport/football/adam-fisher-reaction-to-baldock-s-win-over-colney-heath-1-6478819?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social_Icon&utm_campaign=in_article_social_icons
  12. There's a tribute to the great man on another Forum: Thiago Concalves, a 32 year old St Panteleimon FC player was sadly killed in a road accident last night on his way to his clubs match against Cockfosters Reserves. I had seen him play only a few weeks ago, and he was one of many of his team who looked class players. Condolences to his family, friends and to his colleagues at St Panteleimon FC. RIP. https://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/forums/index.php?threads/thiago-goncalves-st-panteleimon.620/
  13. An anorak from another Forum was at Hitchin Road last night: Spartan South Midlands League - Premier Division Baldock Town v Colney Heath 1-0 (ht 1-0) Venue: Arlesey Town FC; kickoff 1945hrs Entry: £3 concession, programme free online Attendance: circa 60 Plenty of spaces in the car park, entry to the ground was through the bar. No paper programme available on the gate (had to find the programme on the club website). Patchy visibility due to the fog and a patchy performance from league leaders Colney Heath. They started well but were soon struggling to stay on side against a resolute Baldock defence. They resorted more and more to the route one approach to little effect and at the death lost their keeper to a straight red card. Baldock grew in confidence as the game progressed and scored the crucial goal just before halftime. They didn't create many clear cut chances but they effectively stopped Colney Heath playing in all parts of the pitch.
  14. It is so difficult to find the words at this time to describe the loss of Thiago Gonçalves: Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses and dash cam footage following a fatal collision on the A40 Western Avenue, W3 22 January 2020 Police were called at approximately 18:20hrs on Tuesday, 21 January to collision involving a lorry and a moped. The collision occurred on the westbound carriageway before the junction with Horn Lane. The rider of the moped, St Panteleimon FC player Thiago Goncalves was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed. The lorry driver stopped at the scene and no arrests have been made. Enquiries into the circumstances remain ongoing. If you witnessed the incident or have any dash cam footage that may help the investigation please call 020 8246 9820 and quote reference Cad 6306/21Jan. http://www.parikiaki.com/2020/01/metropolitan-police-appeal-for-witnesses-and-dash-cam-footage-for-the-fatal-collision-of-st-panteleimon-fc-player-on-the-a40-western-avenue/
