Savagebee - I'm surprised Pie & Mushy Peas, who I know, didn't take any photos that day, perhaps he forgot his camera at home. Here's a photo of Lamb Meadow though prior to it being turned into yuppie flats, and the Howberry Estate, like most of the old grounds when developers get their grubby hands on them. These links are really interesting about the Club and the circumstances of how they came to ply their trade at Lamb Meadow back in the day, it's great reading old history of Club's isn't it:

Here is another photo of Lamb Meadow, Arlesey Town's former ground, sadly being bulldozed to make way for the now Howberry Green Estate and yuppie flats:

Again not the SSML but over 250 photographs from Hitchin Town v Arlesey Town on 26 December 2014 when Arlesey Town were riding high in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division, although they were relegated that season to Division One Central of the Southern League, Hitchin Town won the game at Top Field 2-0:

Not the SSML but 150 photographs and match report from Arlesey Town v Slough Town, on 4 October 2014 at Hitchin Road, when Arlesey Town were an Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division Club, they were however relegated that 2014/15 season eventually returning to the SSML ranks last season where they had been founder members in 1997. Arlesey Town won the game 1-0 with a James Hatch headed goal on 36 minutes against a strong Slough Town side who hit the woodwork, had a goal chalked off and should have been awarded at least one penalty:

Not the SSML but photographs from Arlesey Town v Wingate & Finchley, on 4 October 2014 at Hitchin Road, in an FA Trophy First Qualifying Round tie in 2014/15 when Arlesey Town were an Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division Club, the hosts won 2-1 and progressed to meet East Thurrock United losing a replay 2-1 at Hitchin Road after a spellbinding 4-4 draw in Essex:

Sorry folks, a bit random but a photograph of the two programmes from Oxford City's FA Vase Semi Final with Belper Town in 1995, the first leg at Belper Town they lost 1-0 but won the second leg 3-1 at Marsh Lane to go through 3-2 on aggregate to meet Arlesey Town at Wembley where obviously Arlesey Town won 2-1:

I thought Buckingham United won an overall programme award but I realise now it was divisional, like I said it is much more of a level playing field these days now Hoddesdon Town have left the SSML:

A HUGE well done to our program editor Duncan Field for scooping the South Midlands Leagues Premier Division best program award for the 2nd year running.

I see that high profile UEFA 'A' Licensed Coach Krasimir Korsachki has joined Arlesey Town to work closely with Chico Ramos as well as with Arlesey Town Youth who are separately run. Krasimir has previously been involved with youth football at various ages and the Pro Touch Soccer Academy (PTSA) working in partnership with many professional Club's as well as the Premier League Kicks programme, he took a team to Denmark to compete in the Dana Cup which some SSML Club's have done previously, and won in the case of Royston Town under Paul Attfield. Krasimir has also been with Tunbridge Wells Foresters FC working closely with the Kent Football Academy, Charlton Athletic Community Trust and Ladies team, the West Ham Academy, Walthamstow and Ryan FC, he is very well contacted.
