Next up - Soham Town Rangers away on Saturday, 16th December at Julius Martin Lane, CB7 5EQ; Bostik Isthmian League Div 1 North, kick off 3pm.
Admission - £8 adults, £5 concessions, £2 children, under-10s free.
After last week's postponement eyes will be looking anxiously at the weather forecast in the hope that a second blank Saturday can be avoided. If it can't Ware will face a midweek journey to Cambridgeshire later in the season and supporters will, for a second time, be denied a chance to see what new manager Craig Edwards is fashioning from the ingredients available to him.
Those ingredients seem to be much the same as those which Kem Kemal had to work with but Craig seems confident of producing some exciting football from them. One new arrival is Sam Alderson, most recently with Kingstonian though with experience at Leyton Orient's youth set up. As Craig told the Mercury "He’ll bring us quality delivery – he’s a great set-piece exponent and a good midfielder".
Previous league meetings with Soham have, until Ware's home win last season, favoured the away sides with the Blues winning four and drawing the other of their five Isthmian matches at Julius Martin Lane but Soham's last three matches this season have all been wins and they have moved up the table as a result. It's not going to be easy.
