Berkhamsted Raiders

Recommended Posts

Yeah, looks like half of division two have applied. No harm in applying, not sure what bearing the restructuring will have on any movements.

Only Codicote and Berkhamsted Raiders have applied for promotion.

One of whom will be promoted as long as they finish in the top five.

Really, thought I’d seen a list with a lot more teams on it. 
 

just checked and I was counting Cranfield and Letchworth but of course they are in a county league not in SSML.

Karen - That's unlikely isn't it where Berkhamsted Raiders are concerned

It will be interesting to see how Berkhamsted Raiders get on this afternoon at ninth place Unite MK, the Club's have yet to lock horns this season with the return match at the Orbital Fasteners Stadium scheduled for the 22nd of this month. Berkhamsted Raiders have lost their last four league games away from home and another defeat today at Manor Fields could see them down to seventh place in the table should the teams just below them win:

It goes from bad to worse for beleaguered Berkhamsted Raiders as they twice gave away the lead at Manor Fields yesterday. Having led 1-0 at the interval and looking comfortable, Berkhamsted Raiders allowed Unite MK back into the proceedings on 72 minutes despite the home side being down to ten men, when they managed to re-take the lead on 83 minutes there was surely no way back for Unite MK however deep into stoppage time they still found an equaliser following shortly after a Berkhamsted Raiders player had needlessly seen red. Just to rub Dead Sea salt into their gaping wounds, Berkhamsted FC won again yesterday at Broadwater against Coleshill Town through a Ryan Kinnane strike on thirty minutes, the Comrades weren't at their brilliant best however and had to rely on experienced custodian Xavi Comas Leon to make an amazing penalty save. Don't get me wrong as I'm sure Berkhamsted Raiders will wish Berkhamsted FC the very best of luck for the remainder of the season and want to see the Comrades promoted to the BetVictor Southern League Premier Central Division next season, and Step Three football, however they must be feeling a little bit awkward knowing full well that had the Club had their 'wicked way' and got the go ahead to replace the grass pitch with an artificial 3G surface, as well as redevelop the iconic stadium, Berkhamsted FC would certainly not be in the position they are in right now.

A report and photos from the Sports Shots website on Unite MK v Berkhamsted Raiders last Saturday, a disappointing attendance of only 16:

they are not due to play at home again until 8 February when hosting Mursley United but it remains to be seen whether that game will go ahead, at least at the Orbital Fasteners Stadium anyway.

I'm assuming that Berkhamsted Raiders scheduled home fixture with Mursley United is definitely going ahead at the Orbital Fasteners Stadium tomorrow

Oh dear, what went so horribly wrong for Berkhamsted Raiders yesterday losing 3-1 at home to Mursley United, they are now down to seventh in the table after MK Gallacticos and Tring Corinthians AFC both won and leapfrog them, a top five finish and promotion to Division One is now looking highly unlikely for the beleaguered Club. Meanwhile Berkhamsted FC won again at Thame United, with Lewis Toomey netting twice, and they extend their lead at the summit of the BetVictor Southern League Division One Central to two points over Corby Town with a game in hand although third place Halesowen Town are the main danger with four games in hand of the Comrades. Interestingly the two sides have yet to meet this season with Berkhamsted entertaining Halesowen Town on 3 March before travelling to The Grove on 18 April, I'm sure Berkhamsted Raiders will be the first to wish Berkhamsted FC the very best of luck for the remainder of the campaign and want to see them promoted to the BetVictor Southern League Premier Central Division next season and Step Three football at their Broadwater home.

Goals from Sarratt's Jake Tabor and Marcus Rivers at the Orbital Fasteners Stadium last night gave beleaguered Berkhamsted Raiders their fifth league defeat in six games and their seventh reverse in their last eight outings. One of those defeats had already come at the hands of Sarratt, in the Hertfordshire Senior Centenary Trophy, just before Christmas at the same venue yet Berkhamsted Raiders had little or no trouble winning 3-2 at  the King George V Playing Fields on the opening day of the Division Two campaign, going on to win their next four league games before the cracks slowly started to appear and the rot really began to set in during December.  You have to wonder what has gone so drastically wrong at the over ambitious Club since they topped the table in August and September and looked cast iron certainties for their aim of promotion to Division One next season, a win last night against Sarratt would have returned them to the fifth place they need however it is looking very much like another season in Division 2.

I expect Berkhamsted Raiders are down on their knees as we speak praying that the hallowed Vicarage Lane turf is waterlogged tomorrow:

I'm sure that everyone at Berkhamsted Raiders will be attending Church tomorrow in order to give heartfelt thanks following the postponement of today's Division 2 fixture at Pitstone & Ivinghoe where the league leaders would have no doubt meted out their sixth league defeat in seven games. Berkhamsted Raiders are scheduled to entertain Unite MK next Saturday and then travel to Buckingham United with a midweek West Herts St Mary's Cup Quarter Final trip to Leverstock Green sandwiched inbetween, the recent application for promotion to Division One is now surely not worth the paper it is printed on unless, in the unlikely event, Tring Corinthians and MK Gallacticos can both be overhauled in sixth and fifth place before the end of the nightmare campaign, even then New Bradwell St Peter are coming up hard on the rails with games in hand.
