Re: Erico Sousa

Have not seen anything on official website confirming anything regarding Sousa. Is it definite that he is on trial or merely speculation? I doubt you'd see anything official about a player in on trial. Gary Smith tweeted a picture of the squad training at Hummersknott yesterday, the player crossing...

Re: Darlington V Tadcaster Albion FA Cup

Ilkeston or Stafford Rangers at home would do be a decent draw for us.

Out of pure selfishness wouldn't mind Bishop Stortford beating Royston and getting them away, might just about manage to get a ticket with an East Herts postcode.

Re: Darlington V Tadcaster Albion FA Cup

Good performance tonight. Not too dissimilar to the Prescott game but in this one we took the lion share of our chances when they came. Still bits and bobs to improve, we did surrender a few too many chances but barring a 5-10 minute spell in the first half most were given up from long range and whe...

Worth having a word with Sousa to see if he would be interested in playing for us in future.
He was a proper player. Looked threatening everything he got the ball. Surprised he's in that division on tonight's showing.

Re: Kidderminster Saturday October 10th

I' m afraid to say but it was not a knee jerk reaction last season when we played with two in the middle of the park we were poor it only improved as did our form when we played with three and put Holness in there.

Re: Kidderminster Saturday October 10th

Really disappointing performance from us. Especially as we managed to get the lead even after Hatfield went off injured. Too many flashes of last season when we weren't at it, too slow, not testing their keeper enough. We know the injured players are a big miss but those coming in have to do more to...

Hard to give an update when there is nothing concrete to update. As you say we start in a week. We have no idea if fans can be let in. (Nor do any teams who are playing step 2 opponents). There are question marks whether step 2 clubs will play as playing will activate the costs associated (a concern...

Don't really care about results at this point in pre-season.

Biggest frustration is we still haven't been able to play what I would have said is our strongest b...
