As much as I would love to be there Tuesday night, it’s logistically almost impossible. If I stayed to see the full ninety minutes, I would face a one and a half hour bus journey from Southampton, not arriving home until 02.30am! I don’t think anyone would not forgive me staying indoors for this one. I could go to the Poole Town v Hartley Wintney … Continue reading Shots @ Boreham Wood
Attentions now turn to home matters and Saturday’s game at the Recreation Ground with the Shots locking horns with Maidenhead United. I’ll be glad of a home game; at least I’ve seen us win – though just the once. Four visits to Torquay, Barnet, Chorley and Harrogate have yielded six hours of football, no victory and hardly a sniff of a goal. This Saturday’s game … Continue reading Next in town: Maidenhead United
Statement via Shots official website: Ollie O’Dwyer has today left the club by mutual consent for personal reasons. The defender made two appearances for the club having signed in June on this year from Crystal Palace on a free transfer. Manager Danny Searle has explained the situation. He said: “We’ve decided to part company, I think it’s best for both parties. “He’s got some stuff … Continue reading O’Dwyer departs
After the Dagenham debacle and the fans’ ongoing split on Searle and the BOD going or staying, it’s time now to take stock and think about what could happen Saturday down at the Rec. The manager has said (and he is correct in pointing out) that we are in a league where on the day, “anyone can beat anyone” though it is one of … Continue reading Next in town: Notts County
Huish Park has been home to the Glovers since 1990. Two of the four stands are terracing, both are behind the goals. At one end is the covered Blackthorn Terrace, whilst at the other end is the Copse Road terrace which is open to the elements. Running along each side of the pitch are two similar stands in terms of size and height. They are … Continue reading On the road again: Yeovil Town

An away trip to Barrow couldn’t have come at a more difficult time, on the brink of the festive holidays and with industrial action by the railway (SWR) in operation from 2nd December. And since defeating us early doors, Barrow AFC have gone on a storming run and sit currently top of the tree in the National League. Barrow also have what we crave most; … Continue reading On the road again: Barrow AFC
Helo pawb! yn y wers hon byddwn yn dysgu sut i siarad Cymraeg am un diwrnod ac yn dysgu popeth sydd angen i chi ei wybod i oroesi diwrnod yn Wrecsam. Perhaps the first thing to know is that the Welsh certainly have a sense of humour. After all, people do live there. And anyone who has seen the movie Twin Town (simply my favourite … Continue reading If all else fails… try Wales!

Contributors: Sky Is Blue and The Beautful History, The Guardian and iNews From glimpsing Championship football to staring non-league full in the face, Chesterfield’s decline has been eye-watering. Three years of failure on the pitch is bad enough, but for all the defeats, it is off-field scandal, gaffes and poor decisions that have compounded supporters’ misery. In May 2015, Paul Cook led a Chesterfield team that included Premier League … Continue reading In Focus: Chesterfield FC
