Re: Gary McCann

Yes, great news. Starting off in difficult circumstances, Gary did really well to stabilise the club after the last lot's mass departure. Were it not for this pandemic we might well have gone up and must be due another bash at the playoffs. It's good to see such commitment these days and hopefully t...

Re: News of former players

Dwight Marshall. The one that played for Hampton in thr 80s. Is it the same player who in the 90s played league football for Luton and Plymouth? Yep, definitely the same. Good player for us was Dwight, but you wouldn't necessarily have said he'd go on to have an established league career. Scored a ...

Re: Middlesex Senior Cup??

I think we are approaching the likes of Brentford and Fulham regarding our centenary celebrations. You have to be realistic that the gulf between us and these clubs is huge compared to a few seasons ago and they are not going to risk fielding their top players against a Step 6 side. It would be rat...

Re: Rest of the season?

Thank goodness that common sense has prevailed. Mouthy moneymen like White need to realise they can't get what they want all the time.
Please tell me they've got a forum...it could take over from Wealdstone's for entertainment value!

Re: Middlesex Senior Cup??

I agree 100% about the prospect of Premier League / Football League clubs helping out the non-league fraternity in the coming pre-season. It's not like those Clubs will be able to embark on there worthless tours of the USA and far-east, after all. Let's hope for some BIG PSFs at the Beveree with so...

Not 100% sure of this but wasn't Alan Simpson President of the Southern Combination Cup, not the Premier Midweek League?

Re: Rest of the season?

One suggestion I read, was that all the clubs should ask to play so that it is now a 43 team competition. We can put out a scratch team and bung up the works by having too many games to play. Good idea, this would give it even less credibility and would mean the clubs with more money than sense wou...

Re: Rest of the season?

Yes, those kind of comments are particularly odious aren't they? Some people have unfirtunately sufferred real mental health issues because of the circumstances of the last year and to clutch at straws by making comments like that is just desperate. I'd have more respect if they were just more hones...
