John Smith Hi mate, Luton are in the upper echelons of League 1 and Hereford are struggling at the foot of the Conference North. Basingstoke won't be playing either any time soon so I'm not sure of what your point is.


They played Hereford in March of this year, but Luton I give you - I was just thinking of a 'big team' that have been around Conference level recently.

I take it back, and swap it with a Bradford.

I think you might want to go and lie down pal.


Thanks for your advice, and continued "contribution" to this thread and portal in general.

5th leg of this season's FA Vase adventure.

Shepshed Dynamo 3-0 NKF Burbage. Their ground is in Butthole Lane :lol:

A bruising encounter. Games further north at this level are noticeably way more physical than games in the Hellenic, Wessex etc. If lacking in overall quality.

After a couple of losses last week against 2 decent Hellenic sides in Ascot Utd and Flackwell Heath, Windsor overcame Erith Town 2-1 Away in the FA Vase yesterday (same result as last year, although a round later this time).

Ex Windsor youngster Brad Pearce scored for Sutton Utd yesterday on his 1st start. He has improved so much in the last 2 years to get to this point. Nice quiet unassuming chap too from what I saw of him.

(Little personal anecdote - Pearce scored a great goal in an U15s Cup semi a few years ago when playing for Burnham against Windsor. My son was the Windsor keeper at the time and remembers how it flew past him into top corner. Windsor won the game 3-2 I think and went on to win the Final.)

AFC had been on a run of 4 straight wins towards the end of October which took them top, until a dip in form last month and Burnham’s recent charge. They went down 0-6 at mid-table Holyport in a midweek Cup game and their line-up on the night was described as ‘much changed’. They are due to host the ‘Sumas’ (Wokingham & Emmbrook) in the league next Saturday.

Didcot Town Development 3-2 Chinnor
Flackwell Heath 2-1 Royal Wootton Bassett Town

P-P Abingdon Town - Scours waterlogged – doesn’t bode well for tomorrow night’s (Mon 3rd) visit of the Moles from Binfield for a Premier League game.
Shrivenham
H-W Woodstock Town - visitors unable to raise a side

WESSP
Alresford Town 1-4 Bemerton Heath Harlequins - poor result for Town beaten heavily at home by the bottom club at start of play – this win drops Andover New Street back to the foot of the table.

WESS1
Alton 0-2 New Milton Town
(Fri) Folland Sports 3-2 Whitchurch United

For what I think is the 7th successive gamein the FA Vase Windsor have been drawn away.

Uckfield or Sutton Common Rovers (or whatever they are calling themselves this season).

Had a chat with Windsor’s manager yesterday at the U18s game and he was not very impressed with Erith Town. The normally mild-mannered Mick Woodham said they had a horrible ground, nasty fans, dirty team and not very nice management.

He is happy about the away days in the Vase - suits our style, and it is good to play at grounds and parts of the country you wouldn’t necessarily visit otherwise. (Except when it’s Erith I guess!)

...well mostly right - apart from your 5th Round HOME tie last Feb vs Hamble :twisted:

... does seem like you appear more regularly on the 'right side' of the draw.

Know nothing about AFC Uckfield -mid table in the Southern Combination League (ex-Sussex) - not been - would target that tie -possibly - should they get past SCR , who currently sit 2nd in the Combined Counties Prem.

If not then preference would swing towards the other CCLP side, Abbey Rangers, who visit to Bearsted.

SCR of course play on the 'plastic' @ Sutton Utd's Gander Green Lane - decent stadium - been a couple of times - most recently to watch the 'lodgers'.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
... regretting not making the effort tonight to trundle over to Scours for :

HELLP Reading City 2-3 Binfield

but work was a @&£€ and nearest/dearest and no 2 son were delayed getting home from his Cello lesson in Emmbrook, so by the time we'd eaten I couldn't be @rsed to go out. :|

Might bobble up to Stag Meadow tomorrow (Tue) for Virginia Water's game with Ascot.

Not a lot on elsewhere, on a remarkably quiet midweek for local NL.

Holmer Gn host Maidenhead in the last B&B 2nd Round tie...... and I think Thame are at home but not much else to draw me off the sofa. 8)

Horrible area, granted - but it's a decent little ground tbf.

Arguably better quality than the Camrose, and easily big enough to cope with the circa 3-400 supporters they get on an average week.

Might struggle when your Lutons or your Herefords come to town, but I feel that Basingstoke may be playing at one or even two levels lower in the coming seasons, unfortunately - so these 'big clubs' will be few and far between.

I can't comment on the Camrose as have never been, nor have I been to a B'stoke game so maybe I'm way off the mark.

My opinion is based on my experience of refereeing at Winklebury, typically in cup finals for the local Sunday leagues. I just couldn't imagine it hosting 'proper' football.


Bit harsh on Winklebury area - didn't think it was that bad.

Yes to the 4G pitch - that's part of the deal. It could be made out to be a decent little ground. If done properly it could have a big stand behind one goal but you are limited opposite stand side because of the dual carriageway.

The club itself is an absolute mess though. For a town the size of Basingstoke, to be playing football at the level it is, pretty shambolic.

Actually - that's a decent question in itself the Borough of Basingstoke has a population of 173,000 - are there many towns with larger numbers playing at a lower level?

Winchester, although not a town, has a population of around 130,000 and is playing a division lower, but agree it's an absolute omni-shamblesof a club at the moment.
