  1. Both sides of this amazing story: https://www.aylesburyvaledynamos.co.uk/teams/77541/match-centre/0-4625257/report https://www.northleighfc.co.uk/teams/585/match-centre/0-4635505/report
  2. Savagebee - To be fair, and I'm sure Pete the Greek will confirm this, Greek Cypriot Club's tend to let a lot of people in for nothing as it's like a family so there was probably nearer 50 or more at the game
  3. This afternoon's results in what must have been sweltering conditions, disappointing that we only have five Club's left in the competition: Dunstable Town 4 Shortwood United 1 Evesham United 2 Harefield United 1
  4. Really shocked and saddened to hear that Graham Bint died last Wednesday, I knew he had been ill and, as a result, had reluctantly stepped down as Secretary at Chalk Lane. I'm sure that many of us dealt with Graham over the years in our administrative duties when Cockfosters were an SSML Club and met him at games, RIP Graham, you will be missed: Graham Bint, the much loved and widely respected former player and Club Secretary of Cockfosters, died yesterday at the age of 77. Graham joined Cockfosters as a young goalkeeper in the late 1950s, and apart from a single season at Hertford Town, spent the whole of his sporting life with the Chalk Lane club, being an essential part of the Herts County League winning side of 1966/67. After his playing days were over, Graham took on many different roles at the club, and in 1988 became Club Secretary, a role which he fulfilled with quiet dignity and ruthless efficiency until last week, when his condition finally forced him to step down. In his working life, Graham had been an assessor in the insurance industry. This, it is believed, is the source of the rare form of asbestosis which ultimately led to his death. Graham's death leaves an enormous hole in the already tiny family that is Cockfosters - an absence that will be felt every single day.
  5. A brief report on this one from another Forum, it was always a tough draw for Stotfold: FA Cup Preliminary Round Roker Park Stotfold (step 6) 0 v 2 Canvey Island (step 4) Attendance 109 Adm £6/3, Programme £1, Tea £1.10, Water 50p, Canned drinks £1, Bacon butty £1.70 I decided not to go too far from home today, and this FA Cup tie, had the home side won, had the potential to be a bit of a cup set. Canvey Island created many more shots on goal, and had it not been for Liam Gooch in goal for Stotfold, the score line would have been far higher for Canvey Island.
  6. FA Cup disappointment for Harefield United this afternoon then as they go down narrowly to their Southern League Division One South opponents, Dunstable Town currently lead Shortwood United 3-1 at Creasey Park with some ten minutes remaining
  7. Evesham take the lead after 22 minutes, I gather it has been all one way traffic so far: https://twitter.com/EveshamUnitedFC?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author
  8. We're off and running then at the Spiers and Hartwell Jubilee Stadium, it's 0-0 with fifteen minutes gone:
  9. So is this your first campaign then where you have been eligible for prestigious FA Cup ties, congratulations and I hope you haven't had to travel too far seeing how you don't drive, I recall from experience that some Officials were regularly sent from miles away for FA Cup and FA Vase ties incurring Club's un-necessary expenses.
  10. This sounded like a real old fashioned thriller, three goals and a missed penalty all in stoppage time: https://twitter.com/valedynamos?lang=en https://twitter.com/NorthLeigh_FC?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author
  11. Berkhamsted Raiders had another good win today I see away at Bovingdon, there is some action from the proceedings at Green Lane on this link: https://twitter.com/BovingdonFC?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author
  12. I was just testing you knowing that you would soon appear, I have amended it. By the way it's not a competition between us.

  17. Nearly 3.00pm folks, lets get ready to rumble, I wonder how many of 'our' Club's can make it through to the First Qualifying Round, no tie looks easy
  18. Apologies if that is the case this afternoon, I have been off the radar for a while and would never have dreamt in a million years that the Official in question had somehow risen through the ranks to be handed a prestigious FA Cup tie, good luck to him. As you rightly say he is a very good Official but there has always been eyebrows raised concerning his connections and links at certain Club's hasn't there.
  19. Has a certain Official not been allocated a SSML fixture today or is he away on holiday, if he ever is given a St Panteleimon or New Salamis game this season I am sure there will be a flood of complaints and objections
  20. It's ludicrous isn't it having the likes of Wycombe Wanderers compete in the Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup as they may as well just hand either them, Reading or Milton Keynes Dons the trophy without a ball being kicked in anger, they even get a bye into the first round just to rub salt into Newport Pagnell Town and Aylesbury Vale Dynamos wounds: https://www.bucksfreepress.co.uk/sport/17831902.wanderers-compete-berks-bucks-cup-first-time-5-years/
  21. It won’t feel great for the ten Premier Division sides, Winslow United and London Tigers will it knowing that they could have still been in FA Cup action: Saturday 24 August (all games 3.00pm) PREMIER DIVISION Crawley Green v Broadfields United Edgware Town v Potton United Harpenden Town v Baldock Town Leverstock Green v Eynesbury Rovers Tring Athletic v Oxhey Jets DIVISION ONE Amersham Town v Rayners Lane Ampthill Town v Hillingdon Borough Brimsdown v Enfield Borough Langford v Buckingham Athletic Milton Keynes Robins FC v FC Broxbourne Borough New Salamis v Winslow United St Panteleimon v London Tigers Shefford Town & Campton v Bedford Wodson Park v London Lions DIVISION TWO Bovingdon v Berkhamsted Raiders Pitstone & Ivinghoe v Sarratt The 61FC (Luton) v Codicote Totternhoe v MK Gallacticos LEAGUE CHALLENGE TROPHY First Round Mursley United v Park View Tring Corinthians AFC v Old Bradwell United
  22. Savagebee - You can see here can't you why Berkhamsted Raiders ruffle feathers as their Chairman, Keith Pollard, is one of these all action, get up and go types who can't sit still for a minute, I'm sure he is a nice enough chap with obviously the Club's best interests at heart but I certainly wouldn't want to be dealing with him as he seems to ride roughshod over everything in his way: https://www.keithpollard.com/playing/ https://www.berkhamstedtoday.co.uk/news/it-s-all-kicking-off-over-plans-for-community-stadium-at-berkhamsted-fc-1-8476464
  23. I thought we might want to make an early start in discussing the weekends eagerly awaited FA Cup ties, it will be well over 30c for Dunstable Town and Harefield Town on Sunday won't it: FA Cup Preliminary Round Arlesey Town v Peterborough Northern Star Aylesbury Vale Dynamos v North Leigh Cirencester Town v North Greenford United Dunstable Town v Shortwood United (Sun 25 Aug, 3.00pm) Evesham United v Harefield United (Sun 25 Aug, 2.00pm) London Colney v Halstead Town Long Melford v Colney Heath Newport Pagnell Town v Flackwell Heath Soham Town Rangers v Biggleswade United Stotfold v Canvey Island Thame United v Leighton Town Wembley v Berkhamsted
  24. Karen - I wasn't aware of that however presumably you receive a courtesy call or e-mail from the home SSML Club just to check whether the date they have chosen is agreeable so it still adds to your workload
