Advent Calendar - December 16th

1 month ago By Stephen King

Draws aplenty in the early years but 1969's abandoned cup game gives us the chance to advance in replay.

We played just three games on this date between 1892 and the start of the second world war. All were drawn before 1939's friendly saw us beat Bishop's Stortford 5-4 in place of the scheduled Spartan League game with Wendover. A resumption of football after the war saw us draw again in 1951's home Spartan League game with Upminster but 11 years later we gained a decision at last with a 5-2 home win over Histon in the Delphian League.

1969's East Anglian Cup game at Hitchin found us 3-0 down after just 27 minutes before fog caused an abandonment. The game itself was a second attempt to decide the tie after an earlier match was abandoned on 58 minutes due to a blizzard with us 4-2 down. Remarkably the third attempt in January saw us win 2-1 with Micky Lyons getting both goals.

Where next?

Today's match at Soham postponed. Another frozen pitch, another blank Saturday and another midweek game to fit in.
Advent Calendar - December 15th Ten matches and 92 years before a defeat on this date but what a beating it was.
