  3. What a win for Cockfosters last night in their London FA Senior Cup First Round tie at Southern League Premier Division South Harrow Borough, see a match report and team sheet. Cockfosters will now host Barking or AFC Croydon Athletic in the Second Round which should attract a good crowd to Chalk Lane, the winners of that tie will host Cray Valley (PM) or Welling United or Phoenix Sports or Charlton Athletic in the Third Round, in other words Charlton Athletic:

    Biggleswade Town are drawn away to Farnborough if they can somehow overcome Billericay Town in tomorrow evening's repIay at the CarIsberg Stadium

    What a win for former SSML Club Biggleswade Town last night in their FA Cup Third Qualifying Round Replay, 3-0 over Isthmian League Premier Division Billericay Town, they now travel to National League South Farnborough with the possibility of repeating their heady 2013/14 exploits by reaching the First Round proper. The Club have come a long way since leaving Fairfield in 2006 all thanks to Wader, formerly of this Parish, the groundhopper from another Forum was at Wader's Carlsberg Stadium last night who painstakingly lists all the players:

    FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round Replay
    Biggleswade Town 3-0 Billericay Town

    Admission - £10, Attendance - unconfirmed
    Venue: The Yvette Brewer Stadium (Langford Road) - On the outskirts of Biggleswade, this was a 261st ground for me. Set back off the road, there is a decent amount of parking and another 11 a side pitch with dugouts to the right of the lane. There is a long single story building with the clubhouse, changing rooms etc. On the touchline is the main stand which is a large modern eBay seated stand which seats around 500 I believe. Offset behind one goal is a small covered standing shelter. The opposite touchline with the dugouts has another small standing shelter central to the touchline. All 4 sides are available for hard standing.
    Game - Billericay were by far the superior side in the first 10 minutes with relentless pressing and at a very quick pace. That being said, Biggleswade looked excellent at what they did and didn’t make any mistakes. The best early chances fell to the Waders with a direct free kick well saved. The Waders took the lead when a corner was placed right onto the line and Billericay just decided that the ball was a grenade and moved away allowing the ball to be bundled in. It was a quick fire second when a sloppy pass from a Billericay defender was countered upon by 3 relentless Waders down the right and precisely finished to make it 2-0. Billericay had some half chances going into half time but nothing too troubling for the Waders keeper.
    The second half was all Billericay but they didn’t muster a proper chance until around the 70th minute when a header was well saved by the Waders keepers feet. Yet again, against the play, a counter from Waders saw a long range effort swerve and squirm under the Billericay keepers fingers, 3-0. The third goal killed the game off and any efforts from Billericay were minimal. A well deserved victory for the home side in a game where they were clinical with their chances.

    Interesting formation for Real Bedford at Raunds tonight. Lining-up without any strikers.    

    PS my mistake just seen Jordan Brown is playing.      

    WiII ReaI Bedford need any strikers this evening, Rob SincIair couId rest five or six pIayers ahead of Saturday's more difficuIt game with WinsIow United at McMuIIen Park.

    SSML Premier Division Cup Second Round
    Crawley Green P Hoddesdon Town

    This one has unfortunately been called off at very short notice due to 'unforeseen circumstances', reading between the lines it sounds as if Luton Town want to use the pitch this evening and 'pulled rank'. A match programme had already been produced:
