Amersham Town's impressive Covid-19 Risk Assessment document. Also the new Clubhouse is taking shape at Spratleys Meadow but still some way to go, I wonder where the Officials and players will be entertained this evening (Tuesday) for the game against Leverstock Green:

Sports Shots photographer Dale James was at Spratleys Meadow yesterday (Saturday 10 October) for the SSML Division One fixture with Stotfold and there are over 200 excellent photographs to enjoy. It's just a shame Amersham Town lost 2-0 and have started the campaign so poorly under Dwaine Bryan, following an extensive pre-season where they played a dozen matches, and find themselves bottom of the Division One table with four successive defeats as well as an FA Vase First Qualifying Round exit to United Counties League Premier Division Cogenhoe United at Spratleys Meadow, losing 4-1:

Awful start for them this season.

They need to get Reon Thomas playing more.

Very surprised to hear the club have dismissed Dwaine Bryan, in what's reported as a very short telephone conversation. Yes i can see results haven't been great, but rebuilding teams is no easy job. The most successful teams are either ones with a bug budget or have been built over many years, usually with good, local young players who have come through the youth system.

Will any new manager need to bring in a whole host of new players and the whole process repeats itself. Given the long delay with Covid break the timing is strange to me and i think the management team there could have been given more time to turn things around.

Over 100 photographs of Amersham itself, predominantly for groundhoppers or away fans with an hour or two to kill before making their way to Spratleys Meadow:

Amersham Town were founder members of the SSML, joining in 1997/98 from the Spartan League and placed in the Premier Division South where they finished second to bottom and were relegated to the Senior Division. Following the League reorganistion for the 2001/02 campaign whereby the lower Division's were restructured, with the old Senior Division becoming Division One and the old Division One becoming Division Two, Amersham Town were placed in Division One but finished bottom and were relegated to Division Two where the Club played for just two seasons before being promoted back to Division One but only due to having floodlights (see link). They remained in Division One, finishing no higher than seventh, until 2014/15 when an 'annus horribilis' campaign saw them finish bottom with just fifteen points and conceding 137 goals including 9-1 and 8-0 home defeats to Edgware Town and FC Broxbourne Borough respectively. After three seasons in Division Two the Club returned to Division One for the 2018/19 campaign, along with runaway Champions Park View, despite only finishing sixth:
