Photographs from Arlesey Town v Enfield Town, on 11 September 2010 at Hitchin Road, in an FA Cup First Qualifying Round tie in 2010/11 when Arlesey Town were a Southern League Division One Midlands Club, Enfield Town won 2-0 after Arlesey Town had beaten Aylesbury FC in the Preliminary Round after a replay. Despite having nine league points deducted that season for fielding an ineligible player Arlesey Town won the Southern League Division One Midlands Championship by one point from neighbours Hitchin Town who at least were also promoted through the play offs, Arlesey Town finished fifteenth in the Premier Division the following season, also reaching the FA Cup First Round proper, and remained in the top flight for four seasons until 2014/15 when relegated back to the lower tier of the Southern League:

Photographs from Arlesey Town v Enfield Town again, this time on Saturday 12 April 2008 at Hitchin Road, in a 2007/08 Isthmian League Division One North fixture prior to the Club making a sideways move back to the Southern League the following 2008/09 season where they remained until being relegated to the SSML in 2017/18, Enfield Town won this game 1-0:

Arlesey Town's new Under 23 side have now been placed in Division One of the Bedfordshire County League for the coming season, it appears they were one of the numerous Club's claiming to have a strong playing strength, which no doubt they have under Manager Valentino Qoku, however the format is all a little bit confusing, make of it what you will:

Arlesey Town Under 23's are in Division One 'A' of the Bedfordshire County League and will lock horns with Langford Reserves, Stotfold Development and Totternhoe Reserves, it appears that Valentino Qoku's men have the slightly easier division of the two and have avoided Cranfield United Reserves:

A different album of photographs from that posted earlier, and match report, of Arlesey Town v Wingate & Finchley, on Saturday 1 November 2014 at Hitchin Road, in a 2014/15 FA Trophy First Qualifying Round tie when Arlesey Town were still riding high as an Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division Club. They won the game 2-1 against 'their equals' from the Isthmian League Premier Division with goals from Dean Mason and James Sage, progressing to meet East Thurrock in the Second Qualifying Round:

I see that, worryingly, there has been a steep increase in Covid-19 cases in the Arlesey, Stotfold and Shefford areas this week, I wonder if this will lead to some of Saturday's pre-season friendly fixtures being called off, Arlesey Town's First Team are due to travel to Buckingham Athletic for a 3.00pm start and Arlesey Town's new Under 23's Team are due to entertain Crawley Green Reserves at 1.00pm. If the Under 23's game is cancelled it will be a disappointment for supremo Valentino Qoku who has liked what he has seen so far from his young side with an impressive 2-0 win at Real Haynes and a hard fought 3-3 draw at AFC Oakley M&DH FC, unlike Chico Ramos who has seen three defeats so far to Kempston Rovers, Hendon and Ware:

The leader of Central Bedfordshire Council, Cllr James Jamieson is urging all residents in Stotfold, Arlesey and Shefford to follow the national Coronavirus guidance, as daily data is showing an increase in cases in this area, particularly among young people.

Interesting YouTube highlights and match report from Hayes & Yeading United v Arlesey Town on Saturday 11 November 2017 in a Southern League Division One East fixture, Hayes & Yeading United won 2-1 with Tony Williams netting Arlesey Town's goal. The reverse fixture at Hitchin Road in January sadly resulted in a 9-1 defeat for Arlesey Town and it was hardly surprising they were relegated to the SSML at the end of that miserable 2017/18 campaign gleaning just fourteen points:

Don't all rush at once but there are just thirty tickets remaining for Arlesey Town supporters and the Club's difficult looking FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie at Eastern Counties League Premier Division Wroxham FC next Tuesday evening:

Arlesey Town's fixtures for the forthcoming campaign, I suppose the question is how long will Chico Ramos remain if results continue in the way they are following pre-season and the 5-0 defeat at Wroxham in the FA Cup:

Arlesey Town's new Under 23's side travel to Division One 'B' outfit Stopsley United in the First Round of the Bedfordshire FA Intermediate Challenge Cup on Saturday 26 September, should they win they will then entertain the winners of the Wilstead Reserves and Stotfold Development tie. Pre-season friendly results haven't been going so well of late for Valentino Qoku's men who lost 4-1 yesterday to Tring Corinthians AFC however they have been up against decent opposition which will stand them in good stead for the Bedfordshire County League Division One 'A' campaign ahead:

The shiny new Arlesey Town Under 23's side, under supremo Valentino Qoku's excellent leadership, will kick off their exciting Bedfordshire County League Division One 'A' campaign with a trip to Kempston Athletic on Saturday 3 October, kick off 2.30pm, they then entertain Stotfold Development the following week followed by a trip to Forde Park to meet fellow new boys Langford Reserves on Saturday 17 October. First of all though there is a difficult visit to Division One 'B' side Stopsley United in the Bedfordshire FA Intermediate Challenge Cup First Round to think about on Saturday 26 September, kick off 2.30pm, and no doubt Valentino Qoku will have already done his homework on the Raynham Way Community Centre outfit who are based in Luton, their pre-season has been going very well including a recent 3-1 win over Totternhoe Reserves and also a 2-1 win over Ampthill Town Development.

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:

Highlights from that momentous day in the Club's 129 year history:

Don't worry it's not the Groundhopping FC guy, YouTube highlights from Saturday's (26 September) Arlesey Town v Tring Athletic SSML Premier Division fixture which Chico Ramos's men won 3-2 with goals from Boyen Dimov and a brace from the young and exciting Herculano Carvalho who I gather arrived at Hitchin Road recently via Vitoria Setubal, Sporting Lisbon and Inter Milan where he played at Youth level. Guinea-Bissau born and Portuguese National Herculano could well be one of the players of the season if he stays injury free as unfortunately injury cut short his time at the San Siro Stadium with Inter Milan who were about to offer him a long term contract. Meanwhile Arlesey Town's Under 23's side went down 5-2 on Saturday at Division One 'B' outfit Stopsley United in the Bedfordshire FA Intermediate Challenge Cup First Round, boss Valentino Qoku will be disappointed with his side's first competitive result after an extensive pre-season however he will be hopeful of a good start in the first Bedfordshire County League Division One 'A' outing of the season next Saturday (3 October) at Kempston Athletic, kick off 2.30pm whilst the First team travel to Cotlandswick to take on London Colney:

Arlesey Town's Under 23's Bedfordshire County League Division One 'A' bow on Saturday (3 October) at Kempston Athletic was unfortunately postponed due to the weather conditions so Valentino Qoku's men have to wait until this Saturday (10 October) when they entertain Stotfold Development at the Norton Road Arena in Baldock, kick off 2.30pm, they then welcome fellow new boys Langford Reserves the following week which I gather is a re-arranged fixture. Stotfold Development did manage to play last weekend and worryingly beat AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College Reserves 5-1 at the New Roker Park, this following a 5-3 Intermediate Cup win the previous week. Arlesey Town's First team were also all dressed up with nowhere to go last Saturday when their SSML Premier Division fixture at Cotlandswick was called off however they were in action last night (Tuesday) and disappointingly went down 2-1 to a Biggleswade United side (see match report) who have been off colour so far this season and who somehow managed to keep Herculano Carvalho under lock and key during the course of the evening. This Saturday Chico Ramos will be hoping for progress in the FA Vase when his team entertain Northampton Sileby Rangers in a Second Qualifying Round tie before locking horns with Dunstable Town at Hitchin Road next Tuesday (13 October) in a league fixture:

Groundhopping FC is now at Uni in the midlands Loughborough I think. So I don't think he will be doing any SSML games in the near future.

There is a God then, I was beginning to doubt it what with lumbering us with Covid-19 since mid March. Yes, Groundhopping FC must be going to Loughborough University as I can't imagine anybody wanting to live there, you have to admit that he's rather odd and, like I said, says exactly the same thing at every ground he goes to 'hello there', 'see you in the ground', hopefully it will be a good game' and 'it's a nice ground to be fair', also have you noticed that he gets every score prediction right, he must edit his videos afterwards.

Yep he does seem to have a strict format that he tends to stick to when making his vids.

It wasn't to be for former FA Vase holders Arlesey Town on Saturday in their Second Qualifying Round tie against Northampton Sileby Rangers at Hitchin Road (see photographs) however the manor of the 3-2 defeat was heartbreaking as they led 2-1 with just five minutes remaining with goals from Bruno De Brito and, who else, Herclano Carvalho. Chico Ramos's men then proceeded to undo all their hard work when the visitors equalised late on and, with the tie heading for spot kicks, conceded again with the final whistle about to sound. The heads are still likely to be down when Dunstable Town come to Hitchin Road tomorrow (Tuesday) evening for a League fixture as well as on Saturday when they travel to Haywood Way, weather permitting, to take on Aylesbury Vale Dynamos. The Under 23's side at least gained their first win of the campaign under Valentino Qoku beating Stotfold Development 3-2 at the Norton Road Arena in Baldock in a Bedfordshire County League Division One 'A' fixture with goals from Cillian Mills, Archie Sayer and Matt Springett, next Saturday (17 October) they entertain Langford Reserves at the same venue, kick off 2.30pm:

I suppose some small consolation of Arlesey Town's disappointing FA Vase Second Qualifying Round defeat against Northampton Sileby Rangers on 10 October is this goal from, who else, Herclano Carvalho, it's a complete mystery how Chico Ramos somehow managed to tempt him to come to Hitchin Road:
