  1. 17.11.07. A thunderous goal from Simon Heslop that day and the away fans sang incessantly during that second half. Three in seven minutes from Stamp (51), Heslop (53) and Jon Shaw (58). Kearney sent off on 55 minutes. One of the great away games.
  2. He was in the right place on at least two occasions against Grays in the play-off semis.
  3. We won that game more comfortably than the scoreline suggests. A very fluent performance that day, as I remember it.
  4. Dagenham have called their game off: https://www.daggers.co.uk/news/-M2NjnVrBPTdYyYxP-5k
  5. Just worried that we will lack the guile to break down another tightly set- up team looking to do us on the break with swift forwards against our defence. Feel that we need to get an early, first goal.
  6. The 'relatively easy opponents' managed to win at Hartlepool yesterday.
  7. Several things today: 1. Three at the back was a problem from the word go. Brown clearly uncomfortable being dragged out to the left. Looks unfit and cannot pass the ball. If Wild persists with this, then play Binnom-Williams in that role. He's a more natural fit. 2.Just play 4-4-2 with Jeff King on the left and Allen on the right, or Redshaw further forward alongside Rodney with Cam King behind. Allen can't play the forward role, and so both he and Redshaw contributed little today. I'd have taken Allen off and pushed Redshaw on with Cam King behind. 3.We play at a funereal pace and the players, to a man, looked uncomfortable in their skin and hopelessly uncoordinated. I know the manager says, 'I will make mistakes', but today nothing worked and he was unable to change it. If this is the 'promotion push' in action, I think we will struggle to get into the play-offs on the back of what I've seen today, and seriously doubt we will be finishing ahead of the likes of Hartlepool, Stockport and Notts.
  8. Sutton 2 Barrow 2. The fat lady hasn't sung yet.
  9. Rain forecast all day, I’m afraid.
  10. Friends of mine who saw Leiston play there last season, when Halesowen were relegated from The Southern League Premier Central, said their fans and the atmosphere there were among the worst in the league. Objects were thrown at some players, and others received verbal abuse, some of it racist in nature.

  13. Apparently, they made four signings last week, but I think two were substituted through injury in the first half at Aldershot on Saturday. One was called Harry Cardwell, but the line-up and substitutions in the NLP didn't make sense, so couldn't work out who the other one was.
