  1. Aylesbury Vale Dynamos suffered humiliation and embarrassment last night against Aylesbury United going down 7-0 however it could have been far worse with the visitors taking their foot off the gas after the interval, already leading 5-0, and boss Ben Williams doing 'a Sven' and totally changing the line up during the break. Unfortunately it won't have cheered up Aylesbury Vale Dynamos Chairman Mike Borrett who is self isolating at present and was forced to miss the encounter although, on second thoughts, he was probably delighted.
  2. Following another pre-season friendly defeat on Saturday (24 July), albeit at the hands of Step Four side Hanwell Town, Fergus Moore's men managed a 3-1 win at Aston Clinton last night (pictured) however not before the hosts had taken a 21 minute lead and still lead at the interval. It was not until just before the hour mark that Leverstock Green drew level through Ollie Lawford and, with the clock ticking down, not until 81 minutes when they managed to forge ahead through Mikkel James who netted again in stoppage time, much to Fergus Moore's relief:
  3. Thanks to Karen for finding most of the results this evening, apparently there were some late 'no shows' again: Tuesday 27 July Arlesey Town 5 Kempston Rovers 1 (at Kempston Rovers) Aston Clinton 1 Leverstock Green 3 Aylesbury Vale Dynamos 0 Aylesbury United 7 Bedford P Berkhamsted Comrades Belstone 4 Sarratt 0 Buckingham Athletic Development 2 Tring Corinthians AFC 4 Bugbrooke St Michaels P Bedford Bugbrooke St Michaels 2 Milton K
  4. A nice birds eye view of the New Roker Park:
  5. Two Men In Search Of The Beautiful Game were in attendance at Huntingdon Town v Burton Park Wanderers on Wednesday 27 November 2019 for a 2019/20 United Counties League Division One encounter, Burton Park Wanderers won 2-0:
  6. Savagebee - Not SSML but you may be interested in this photograph of a young Gordon Riddick who went on to play numerous games for Brentford between 1973 and 1977, sadly he passed away three years ago. I didn't realise Gordon was born and bred in Hertfordshire and cut his teeth in the game at Luton Town, arriving at Kenilworth Road at the tender age of seventeen, he was also a good cricketer. They sadly don't make players like that anymore as is also the case with his Brentford team mate Peter Gelson who died earlier this year: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Riddick https://www
  7. Pre-season friendly fixtures during this week where known: Monday 26 July Banbury United Development 4 New Bradwell St Peter 2 Kempston Rovers Reserves 2 Irchester United 0 Tuesday 27 July Arlesey Town v Kempston Rovers (kick off 7:45pm) Aston Clinton v Leverstock Green (kick off 7.30pm) Aylesbury Vale Dynamos v Aylesbury United (kick off 7.00pm) Bedford P Berkhamsted Comrades Belstone v Sarratt (kick off 7.00pm) Buckingham Athletic Development v Tring Corinthians AFC (kick off 7.30pm) Bugbrooke St Michaels v Bedford (kick off 7.45p
  8. Scott Reynolds takes his men to Easington Sports this evening (Tuesday 27 July) for Buckingham Athletic's penultimate pre-season friendly fixture before embarking on the new SSML Division One campaign, kick off 7.30pm:
  9. Aston Clinton have had a strange pre-season so far haven't they, it's as if they don't want to play however the game with Leverstock Green appears to be going ahead this evening (Tuesday 27 July) at Aston Clinton Park, kick off 7.00pm. New joint bosses Billy Harrison and Taylor Collins must be very much behind the curve which will no doubt have been noted by Codicote who entertain Aston Clinton on the first day of the new SSML Division Two campaign on Saturday 7 August:
  10. Sarratt make the excursion to Herts Senior County League Premier Division Belstone FC this evening (Tuesday 27 July), kick off 6.45pm apparently and not 7.00pm:
  11. It's the annual pre-season friendly this evening for 'bragging rights' in Aylesbury, 7.00pm kick off for some reason, I wonder whether Ollie Bayliss will be in attendance: A pre season local derby tonight. A young Aylesbury Vale Dynamos team against an established Aylesbury United hopefully a good game will be served up and everyone enjoys it. Note the early kick off of 7pm at Haywood way.
  12. Codicote have appointed Caolen South as successor to James Tizzard: Codicote FC are pleased to welcome Caolen South as 1st Team manager. Caolen was introduced to the Club by now Codicote resident and Hendon manager Lee Allinson. Caolen had previously served with Lee at Biggleswade Town, Hendon and Arlesey Town. Caolen’s assistant and back room staff will be announcement to the squad on Tuesday. Its been a tough few weeks with the previous manager leaving two weeks into pre-season but we are delighted to have Coalen on board, a young man with a great coaching pedigree while his assistant w

  14. An opportunity to start a thread on SSML new boys Raunds Town with these photographs from a 2020/21 United Counties League Division One fixture at Northampton Sileby Rangers Fernie Fields base on Saturday 17 October 2020, the home side won 4-1 with Raunds Town not really at the races that afternoon:
  15. An opportunity to start a thread on 'new kids on the block' Burton Park Wanderers with these photographs from a 2020/21 FA Vase First Round proper tie, at Northampton Sileby Rangers Fernie Fields home on Saturday 31 October 2020. Following a thrilling 2-2 stalemate after ninety minutes, Burton Park Wanderers won a competition 5-4 from the twelve yard mark but then were sadly forced to scratch from the competition due to Covid allowing the gleeful Norwich United a bye to the Third Round:
  16. Over seventy photographs from Ampthill Town's pre-season friendly encounter with Newport Pagnell Town, at Willen Road on Saturday (24 July), where Lee Hawkes men were unfortunate to go down 3-2:
  17. You are lucky to be at home to Keynsham Town, Harefield United face a trip to Chipping Sodbury Town in Gloucestershire although, as you say, if you beat them then you have to travel equally as far if not more so. It's not right following the botched restructuring of the Pyramid and Keynsham Town have never had to travel so far for an FA Cup tie in their history since first entering the competition in 1990/91.
  18. Two additional links of groundhoppers visits to Cotlandswick over the years: London Colney FC – The View From The Shed (wordpress.com) Hopping all over the World: London Colney (worldgroundhop.blogspot.com)
  19. A team sheet from Ampthill Town v London Colney in a 2009/10 SSML Division One encounter at Ampthill Park on Tuesday 11 August 2009, London Colney won 7-0 with goals from Frankie Jowell, Garry Simmonds, a brace from Russell Gallagher and a hat trick from David Parkinson who wasn't on the team sheet for some strange reason:
  20. Karen - I see that this one will be on the Friday night, 6 August: FA CUP Tickets now on Sale (newsalamisfcuk.com)
  21. I'm just wondering what recently appointed New Salamis boss Danny Bailey makes of New Salamis's fixtures for the forthcoming campaign in the SSML Premier Division and, more to the point, how long he will be in the hot seat for at Coles Park before Club Chairman Michael Michalakis is looking for his fourth Manager since the sad departure of George Georgiou in September 2019:
  22. Another disappearing photograph which is rather disrespectful to the great man. George really did a Harvey Smith to New Salamis didn't he when he joined Southern League FC Romania and got the last laugh following his 'criminal' treatment by Chairman Michael Michalakis who has had to appoint three Managers in the short time since George sadly departed the Club in September 2019:
  23. Northants - It's always so nice to get 'new blood' on the Forum, welcome
  24. A groundhopper from another Forum was at McMullen Park yesterday: 3pm - Friendly Bedford FC 0-7 Eynesbury Rovers Admission - £4 Attendance - 49 (h/c) Venue: McMullen Park - next door to The Eyrie is the slightly more rough and ready home of Bedford FC. Had to purchase a ticket from the portacabin clubhouse, then show the paper stub to a guy in a ticket booth on the ground entrance. Staff again were very friendly and welcoming - I also had some social media contact with both Bedford clubs and they were quick to respond and helpful with queries. The ground borders the A421 so has the r
  25. Ollie Bayliss has already divulged what and who will be featured on his eagerly awaited BBC Three Counties Radio Non League Show at 2.00pm today, Ollie will look at yesterday's numerous friendlies that took place albeit with a number of postponements including Club's unceremoniously pulling out on the morning of the game. Early season fixtures will be covered as well as the FA Cup and there will be features on Potters Bar Town, Royston Town and Newport Pagnell Town.
