Sounds like a great game, from what I've read.Further details to follow but 1,103 at Frome Town this afternoon!
Do Budleigh Salterton play where the cricket club do? Played there a few times! Used to stay in Topsham when we did!Just arrived for budleigh salterton v topsham town. The budleigh keeper resembles david raya though warming up with a fag hanging out of his mouth suggests not, good crowd, 23 here so far.
Hampton looked dreadful a few weeks ago.28th December 2021
National League South
Slough Town 4-1 Hampton and Richmond Borough
£13 Admission, before the game online.
£5 Sausage Roll and Burger.
Attendance: 813 (30 or so chaps from Slough who Alan Julian tried to take on a couple of times)
Bit of handbags, apparently between the two substituted Hampton players.
Slough well worth their win, and could have scored more, things don't sound right at Beveree, with reports of factions in the dressing room.
...........divert it to the 'borng thread'...............Normally attend a Boxing Day game at a new ground when up North over Xmas. Settled on Doncaster vs Sunderland this time, but not only did they move it to 27th Dec, but they wouldn't sell tickets unless with a previous purchase history.
Presumably this was to prevent Sundland fans infiltrating the home stands, but considering they're doomed to relegation and eventually only sold 10,751* tickets in a 15k capacity stadium, it puts BFC's ticket sales policy into perspective.
* - 4,500 of them Sund fans.
(Sorry if this is "diverting" the thread, but I wasn't sure where else to put it)
Bracknell v Chertsey in feb will be the big one….Surrey invasionWestfield v Bracknell
Crowd rough guess 150-200 I reckon
Bracknell 40 odd fans behind goalie
Played about 20 mins so far.
Bracknell currently top and 12 on bounce they’ve won.
Westfield sitting below mid table.
Fairly even start.
Looks like their pulling away a little Bracknell at top few games in hands for teams below but still leaves them short.Bracknell v Chertsey in feb will be the big one….Surrey invasion
Chertsey only Drew Today so it’s Bracknells to lose …can’t see that happening as best side by a mile I’ve seen this season at ctfcLooks like their pulling away a little Bracknell at top few games in hands for teams below but still leaves them short.
1st time I’ve seen Bracknell in 6/7 years a lot changed squad/club wise in that time.
There was a few Bristol Rovers fans too apparently, as their game at Orient was postponed.Sutton United 2-1 Exeter City
Attendance: 3,278 (482 Grecians)
Didn't buy the programme.
Chap count < 100 (Palace at home)
Good game which took me back to our days in the basement division. Ex-bee Robert Milsom grabbed the winner from the spot in the 89th minute.
Quite hard to believe Sutton are where they are as I remember watching them play Staines in the Isthmian League. The ground is still fit for that level, however they're getting good crowds due to their on field success.
The win takes them up to third, so I guess their supporters are now eyeing up a London derby versus Charlton next season
Only average burgerMust have been a bloody good burger
My parents used to live in Widford, two villages down from Much Hadham. Never even knew they had a team!Sat 21st August.
At Cheshunt FC.
Allenburys 10 Much Hadham 3
I had a bottle of diluted blackcurrant squash.
Wet first half.
Uneventful friendly, 1 pen and lots of goals.
National League South
Hampton and Richmond Borough 1-2 Dorking Wanderers
Admission £14 in advance, saves queuing just go in the season ticket gate.
Att:795 (100 or so from Dorking, no real chaps) 4-5 Hampton, who are known as the angry brigade, who spent most of the second half in light hearted banter with ex Hampton keeper and Middlesex wicket keeper Dan Lincoln.
Dorking are by far the best team in the NLS and if they don't win it, whoever finishes above them will win the title.
Didn't sample the food, but I know already how good it is.
There is now a bar in the far corner of the ground (The Thirsty Beaver)
Hampton played well and probably deserved a point, but finishing is their problem.
