Some really good games with you in both league and cup last season but lots of ex-Linnets at Bedford so they will be looking to do what they can to meet up again with us. Sorry to say I am with Minsterman Central in that I would rather see us pull out than go to the bother of playing the tie.
Our tie at Borehamwood has been moved to 22nd Dec after it was postponed from this Saturday. This meams their league against Weymuff scheduled for that day is postponed as FA competitions take precedence.
4-2 win over Needham Market in the first game in front of fans back home, Mensah scoring after a few mins and we were 3 up in half an hour. Needham though didn't give in and their wingers in particular really caused some issues and suddenly it was 3-2 with two really well taken goals and it became very cagey.
Jack James then scored his 2nd and our 4th after their keeper made a horrific gaffe and from that point the tie was won. Needham look a decent side, would be surprised if they aren't in the promotion race in their league come the end of the season.
Was nice to be home and have supporters in (was a "covid restricted" sellout) but the whole social distancing and masks experience isn't a great one in truth. Would obviously rather that than no fans at all of course, but still.
We’re away at Morpeth Town. We kind of got to the semi-final by accident last year having played reserve teams the whole way through, then got thrown under the bus by having to play Harrogate when they’d already started their season and we’d only had a couple of friendlies.
Don’t think we’ll be too bothered and will make as many changes as we can, with the players returning from injury all getting a game. Should still have enough to win, but wouldn’t be a huge surprise if we didn’t.
