It’s a sort of Football Saturday

By Ian Townsend

We’ve three competitive matches, and a collection of friendlies. Here’s the news you need.

We have three competitive matches today, the first two in the FA Trophy Second Round. Felixstowe and Walton United, who have defeated two giants in the last two rounds, head north- and they’ll need to slay yet another giant as they take on Basford United, who are currently second in the Pitching In Northern Premier League. Carshalton Athletic are also on the road- which is rather a shame as they have a one hundred percent home record- as they travel to take on Swindon Supermarine. The top team in Swindon are currently in sixth place in Pitching In Southern Premier South.

Our third competitive match is in the London Senior Cup, and sees two South Central rivals meet as Barking host Hanwell Town. This will be the Geordies first competitive match since the end of October, whilst Barking played at Carshalton in the Trophy last weekend.
