Jordan White Gives Dean Keates a Nudge

Dean Keates has made it clear that his squad are playing for contracts, and Jordan White has come up with a cunning ploy to appeal to his manager by becoming two players in one! It was logical to drop the big striker into the back four last Saturday when injuries meant Martin Riley was the only central defender available. After all, he’s big and strong, … Continue reading Jordan White Gives Dean Keates a Nudge

So What did Last Saturday Actually Mean?

I’m confused. Going into last weekend’s excellent win over Barrow I was concerned by the direction this season was taking. Three points later and I’m looking at a league table which has us one point off the play-offs and wondering if I was right to be concerned in the first place. A closer examination of the table only makes it more pleasing. Three of the … Continue reading So What did Last Saturday Actually Mean?

Silvio’s Lesson From History

Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis.

Elliott Durrell’s arrival has … Continue reading Silvio’s Lesson From History

>Histon Conundrum Cracked

>So tell me, is it a coincidence that the first time we manage to beat Histon is also the first time we didn’t play a horses-for-courses team against them? In three previous games Saunders has played a back four consisting totally of centre backs, and the fact we haven’t scored in any of those games is surely not unrelated. I’ve always taken it as a … Continue reading >Histon Conundrum Cracked

>Conference A Gangster’s Paradise?

> When we got our home game against Histon called off due to international call-ups last October the rest of the Conference were unimpressed. Yet it appears to have possibly saved the Histon squad’s lives. The events which surrounded Histon’s game against Lewes last September sound like something out of the Sopranos. There’s something hard to grasp about a story on a Cambridgeshire villlage football … Continue reading >Conference A Gangster’s Paradise?
