  1. I shall miss this forum. I will still read it, of course, but I shall miss the witlessness of a good deal of what is posted, the use of "of" instead of "have", the illiterate ranting, the news, the score updates, the fishing and the bites. I shall also be hoping that we do better than our one season in the Southern League - P42 W6 D4 L32 F25 A97 Pts 22. I shall be hoping for our first home Trophy tie, and our first Trophy win and a good, solid season. At least no side can be worse than Woodford, unless they ship a lot more goals.
  2. I hope that this clarifies some issues: http://www.eghamtownfcltd.co.uk/news/our-new-journeys-959915.html St. Ives and the trip to Corby Town to play Kettering Town are well beyond any CCL journey. Still, I know that Corby is not that difficult to get to, having driven there when were last in the Southern League. I also managed Evesham in two hours dead with no satnav that season. The travel initially appeared daunting but I don't think it is too bad. Luton can be done in an hour if the traffic is OK.
  3. Egham Town have so far been able to arrange friendlies, all away, at Cove (20 July), Spelthorne Sports (23 July), Fleet Spurs (27 July), Hanwell Town (30 July) and Bedfont & Feltham (1 August). There are plans for one or two at home but these are not yet finalised.
  4. I am disappointed that there is so much disappointment about. We at Egham Town are NOT disappointed - I think you know why.
  5. No-one, not even diehards like me, predicted how this season turned out for us. Given that a club's fortunes can and often do change during the season, as Egham's did, I can only base my predictions for 13-14 on what I have seen this season. South Park, Cove, Windsor, Epsom and Ewell will all do well, the promoted sides will do nothing of note and we will watch with interest where John Hamsher goes to next.
  6. There was an Alan Reed who was the lead singer of crap prog rock band Pallas - it's not him, is it?
  7. You fecking cheeky git. 31 wins to your 30! We did not exactly have it easy with a 19 man squad in the run in, whereas Guernsey could pluck from a collection of squads to bolster the numbers - and no, I am not counting MLT. We played against each other twice and won one apiece. This is why I have developed a dislike of Guernsey FC - not the players, not the committee, but the sheer bloody arrogance of too many of its fans. You seem to think that because you represent an island and get massive crowds we should all defer to you. Well, duck fat for a game of soldiers. I hope when you get promoted that you begin to realise that other teams will hate you too if this attitude carries on.
  8. Aw shucks, guys, you make me feel all fuzzy inside. Our last (only) Southern sortie saw us come bottom with six wins and four draws. At least we can't be any worse than Woodford!
  9. Having looked at the best guess for the EvoStik I think you can see why I am sure we would prefer that to the Ryman. Fair play to GFC for winning four on the bounce in four days. Now they can have a bloody good rest. Perhaps a holiday in Jersey?
  10. Doubtless - Gareth from Ashford Town says Kettering is a possibility. I know they won't be playing at Kettering but some local ground but that is still a near 200 mile round trip, but we used to play Saffron Walden and that is almost exactly the same mileage. Rugby, Faversham, Folkestone, Hythe, Herne Bay and Whitstable are all about the same. There are more of those trips up and down the M25 than there up and down the M40 so for that reason, plus the local derbies against Ashford and Chertsey , I at least would prefer glue to stationery goods.
  11. Thank you fellow posters for your kind comments and good wishes. We now wait to see which way the wind blows... We have thoroughly enjoyed most of our time in the CCL. Next season in CCL Premier will be very difficult with Windsor certainly among the faves, with Cove and, of course Guernsey, assuming there ends up being only us going up. The satnav will be working overtime for us next season.
  12. CHAMPIONS! 38 long years since we last won anything of note, the Athenian League Div 2 title in 74-5. Thanks to Bedfont Sports for their sportsmanship, and good luck to them for next season. It was a struggle and at times our performances have not been great, but we got there eventually. Good luck to the Green Lions too.
  13. Apart from the HW home game, when his gravy must have been spiked, Paul Borg is a big reason why we have been in the top four for two seasons. Glad to see Arran Taylor-Ives and Tommy Hedges getting some recognition. What about Jamie Read, making the step up from Div One and scoring 32 (so far)?
  14. "I believe?" It's called being able to count up to twenty-two.
  15. No, we lost 1-6. 0-4 at ht. Did not score until the tail end. Well done HW; good performance. Opposite for us. Nuff said.
  16. We have won nothing apart from the Southern Combination Cup (about 1978 I think) since we won the Athenian League Div 2 in 1975. Because of this we Egham fans have a "glass half empty" view. We can't believe it until it actually happens; you aren't saying you've thrown in the towel, are you?
  17. "Purchased"? I know, nothing can be taken for granted. We must win tomorrow and Tuesday - don't want to go into the last game needing a win.

  19. We won 8-3 at Chalky Lane last season and were 2-0 up uphill with goals from Read and Stanislaus. Read scored seconds into the second half, Taylor-Ives got the fourth, Read got the fifth for his hat-trick. Patrick Craig, Brendan Matthew and Jacob Lambe scored the others. C & H scored at 4-0. Perhaps they were jetlagged. Not too bothered, frankly. The 7 went off in a huff when subbed.
  20. Surely this belongs in a primary school playground?
  21. This time I have witnesses. I was standing by our dugout, and it was pretty clear, and pretty daft.
  22. I saw the throwing of the ball into Steve Coultas' face but to be fair I thought the ref let a tussle on the ground go on a bit longer than was necessary. Not that I actually give a toss... Now on to South Park for another bloody hard game.
  23. 1 Dunstable Town 40 110 2.75 2 Darlington 1883 41 109 2.659 3 Spennymoor Town 34 87 2.559 4 Marlow 32 81 2.531 5 EGHAM TOWN 36 87 2.417 6 Stratford Town 36 87 2.417 7 Scarborough Athletic 40 96 2.4 8 Guernsey 28 67 2.393 9 Dereham Town 33 78 2.364 10 Oxhey Jets 36 84 2.333 This is up to and including Guernsey's win on Sunday. I have all 74 if you want! Yours in stattoland...
  24. Hassan Al-Haddad was injured in a tackle with Egham's Tim Pitt. Luke Muldowney put us 1-0 up in, I think, 80 minutes. Then we made a daft mistake in midfield and Cove got a corner from which Liam Eagle got his head on a cross and we had just enough time for one last attack. The ref P Bain was an absolute joke, a disgrace to the ref's badge. The lino on the dugout side could not believe the decisions Mr Bain was making. We hope that Hassan gets well soon.
