  1. AlwaysLeighton - Do you think the Club could reach the heady heights they did in 2003/04 when winning the Isthmian League Division 2, I know that was only Step 5 equivalent however thereafter they finished in the top ten of the Southern League Division One in six of the following seven seasons before a gradual decline unfortunately started to set in and Managers came and went in a very short space of time such as Craig Wells, Craig Bicknell, Mark Eaton, Stuart Murray and Paul Burgess before saviour Scott Reynolds thankfully arrived and steadied the ship, a lot of this was before your time of c
  2. Photographs and match report from Tring Athletic v Arlesey Town in a 2019/20 SSML Premier Division fixture, at Hitchin Road on Saturday 28 September 2019, Tring Athletic won 2-0 with two second half goals from, who else, Louie Collier who returned to Kings Langley shortly afterwards following the end of his loan spell at Cow Lane: Tring Athletic Football Club (tafc.co.uk)
  3. PetetheGreek - Let's give this another go, I'm sure I can catch you with your trousers down this time. Strangely I touched earlier on Roger East sending the wrong player off during a game back in 2014/15 but I don't think his red card was ripped from his hand, that would attain a heavy fine wouldn't it even if the red card was later over turned:
  4. Just to re-iterate from another thread that, as from tomorrow (28 January), £10,500 in funding is available for each SSML Premier Division Club and £7,500 for each SSML Division One Club through the 'Football Stadia Improvement Fund', here is the criteria and a link to the application process: FWSP | Football Foundation Government confirms £10 million emergency support for steps 3-6 of the National League system - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
  5. Do you think you would have won the Championship this season, obviously only ten League games had been played with seven wins but I had the impression the team hadn't got out of first gear yet. Once Connor Calcutt had 'returned' from paternity leave there would have been no looking back particularly with Webby back from Hemel Hempstead Town although I'm not sure how long his loan spell was for, I'm sure Joe Sweeney would have negotiated with Lee Bircham to keep him at Bell Close for the season as, inexplicably, he wasn't getting a look in at Vauxhall Road was he.
  6. Yes, really good news but I will believe it when I hear our 21 Premier Division and 17 Division One Club's have banked their share of the money, Premier Division Club's are entitled to £10,500 each and Division One Club's £7,500 each, applications open tomorrow: FWSP | Football Foundation The Non-League Football Paper Clubs at Steps 3-6 will receive £10 million worth of grants but funding at Step 1-2 will only be distributed in the form of loans Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston has announced that Steps 3-6 of the National League system will receive up to £10 million to prot
  7. A very interesting listen, former Arlesey Town boss Robbie O'Keefe talks about their 1994/95 FA Vase Final win over Oxford City and the exciting road to Wembley where they beat two former winners Hoddesdon Town and Diss Town as well as Boston Town, Barnstable Town, Cammell Laird and Raunds Town: ‎Arlesey Town FC FA VASE 25th Anniversary - The Road To Wembley Glory on Apple Podcasts
  8. Joes - What was your thinking in bringing Connor on so late in the day against Leiston out of interest, I'm assuming he wasn't anywhere near full fitness however he didn't enter the fray until the 83rd minute. Leiston were on the ropes for the entire second half and seemed a fairly average Step 3 side who were there for the taking after Archie McClelland had pulled a goal back soon after they had made it 2-0, had Connor been brought on mid way through the second half there would have still been ample time to equalise and even win the tie in ninety minutes with Leiston giving away a lot of free
  9. The 1994/95 campaign was of course the famous one where Arlesey Town lifted the FA Vase beating Oxford City 2-1 in the Final at Wembley having disposed of Hoddesdon Town, Boston Town, Barnstable Town, Diss Town, Cammell Laird and Raunds Town along the way. The Club also won the South Midlands League Premier Division Championship by a Country mile but were unable to gain promotion due to ground grading at their old Lamb Meadow home, second place Wingate & Finchley were promoted to the Isthmian League where they have remained ever since other than two seasons in the Southern League Division
  10. An interesting article on the BBC Sport website about the dire National League situation at the moment. It would appear that at the meetings last year between the League, FA and DCMS, where the initial funding of £10 million in grants was agreed, there was no mention of further grants being made to Club's, or any mention of loans for that matter, the National League just naively assumed further funding would be made available to them in the form of grants and didn't ask for anything in writing: National League still to decide on 2020-21 season vote - BBC Sport However, after speaking
  11. Winslow Boy - To be fair I think that a lot of us are still clutching at straws in a vain hope that we can start again soon and somehow complete the season but it is pretty obvious that there is no way we will be able to particularly after hearing today's grim statistics of 1,631 new deaths taking the figure above 100,000 deaths to Covid in the UK: UK Covid deaths pass 100,000 with 1,631 new fatalities and 20,089 cases - as Boris Johnson addresses nation (thesun.co.uk)
  12. You are spot on again, I am impressed: Man City's controversial goal against Aston Villa sparks rule change after referees' chiefs agree it was morally wrong (thesun.co.uk) From now on, a similar situation, when an attacker retreats from an offside position to win the ball before the defending player has the chance to pass or clear, he WILL be flagged offside.
  13. I see that, following the assessment of the FA survey sent to its Club's and returned, the Kent County League (Steps 7 to 10) feel that completing the full season will soon be impossible and will now take direction will from the Kent FA, that is despite 75% of Club's who completed the survey saying that they 'wish to restart the season and play football as soon as they are able to do so'. What was the point of having the survey then.
  14. I am getting really worried about Karen as we haven't heard a peep out of her for ages and there has been serious flooding in her home City of York recently due to storm Christoph, I hope she is okay and hasn't been flooded out:
  15. Over 100 photographs from the 2019/20 SSML Premier Division fixture between North Greenford United and Arlesey Town, at Berkeley Fields on Saturday 21 September 2019, resulting in a 1-1 stalemate, substitute Marciano Dramani-Adu equalised for the hosts with three minutes of normal time remaining:
