A team sheet from Ampthill Town v London Colney in a 2009/10 SSML Division One encounter at Ampthill Park on Tuesday 11 August 2009, London Colney won 7-0 with goals from Frankie Jowell, Garry Simmonds, a brace from Russell Gallagher and a hat trick from David Parkinson who wasn't on the team sheet for some strange reason:

A good 3-1 win for Jack Metcalfe's men at Essex Senior League Sawbridgeworth Town on Tuesday evening (27 July), a groundhopper was in attendance. Crofters End has always been 'ramshackle' hasn't it:

I reffed here once, so not a new ground.
Best described as ramshackle, and really needs a bit of a clean up. We arrive to fine six officials have turned up and there is a bit of a row going on. The eventual referee states he is the best referee here. After watching him, I know, he wasn't.
London Colney doninate the first half and go in 3 up at half time, the first a great finish. Its just a case of many. However second half was truly dreadful. Sawbridgeworth made some subs and improved but the ball was like a hot potato. Sawbo scored a good goal at the death.

I wonder what is going on at Cotlandswick as London Colney's fixture next Tuesday (12 April) with Holmer Green has been switched to the Recreation Ground at their neighbours Colney Heath, perhaps Karen could reliably inform us why:

Our game on Tuesday 12th April is a 7.45 ko v Holmer Green FC, has been switched, and will now be played at Colney Heath Football Club , The Recreation Ground, High St, Colney Heath, Hertfordshire AL4 0NP. HUGE thanks to our neighbours up the road for hosting the match, we might retain a little bit of home ish advantage. COME ON YOU BLUES!!!!!!

There's no mystery, one of London Colney's floodlights was damaged in last month's storm and cannot be used

New London Colney supremo Stuart Crawford is confident of a good 2022/23 campaign at Cotlandswick and is quoted as saying 'the tag of Spartan South Midlands League whipping boys can be consigned to history', lets hope that will be the case:

It's a groundbreaking sponsorship deal however it will no doubt raise eyebrows, including in the corridors of power at the FA and the small-minded 'blazers' may have something to say about it:

https://gaamagazine.com/non-league-soccer-team-introduces-sex-toy-company-as-new-sponsor/

Sexual wellness company LELO has become the first brand to officially sponsor a crotch in its partnership with London Colney Football Club. The unlikely logo placement deal sees LELO named the St Albans based team’s headline sponsor for the 2022/2023 season as part of the brand’s mission to help break down the taboo surrounding male sex toys and sexual wellness.

Coinciding with the start of the football season, the deal will see the crotch of the players' home and away kit emblazoned with the brand’s logo. The partnership comes as findings from LELO reveal that almost a third of men wouldn’t feel comfortable telling people they own a sex toy.

A fifth of men say talking about male sex toys in front of others would make them feel uncomfortable and a quarter said they have been laughed at or mocked for discussing it.

With three quarters of men agreeing that there is a stigma surrounding male sex toys, the sponsorships aim to help normalise the use of them and break the taboo. The St Albans based team who compete in the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division, and first formed in 1907, play an important role in breaking the stigma with the new partnership.

Donald Williams, Chairman of London Colney Football Club, said: “We are thrilled to be working with LELO to help create conversation around men's sexual wellness and sex toys as well as be part of the movement in breaking the stigma around it. This sponsorship is a bold statement and will certainly raise eyebrows in the world of football - we look forward to seeing the response from our fans”.

Justine Pescher, LELO’s UK Marketing and communications manager, said: “We know the pandemic saw a spike in male sex toy use however there is still a huge stigma around it, so what better place to spark the conversation than the world of football which we know has many male fans across the world. We are excited to be working with London Colney Football Club on this important sponsorship and look forward to seeing people across the country join the conversation and help break taboos when it comes to male sex toys”.

Looks like RBFC won't be the league team with the most ambitious sponsorship anymore!
