Since we last met dear listener the FA has finally resolved the problem of the Isthmian Premier playoffs.
Enfield Town lost their appeal and having already announced that they would accept the decision without further recourse to legal process, the playoff semi finals went ahead this evening. Hendon beat Met Police and Margate beat Dulwich Hamlet, both 2-1, so it's Hendin v Margate at 3pm on Sunday. Should be at Earlsmead in Harrow but hearing a rumour that the ground may not be available due to a pre-booking.
All a bit of a shambles but the blame really does seem to lie with the FA on this one.
A couple of days until the Muratti and it's a bit disappointing for expats to learn that the match will not be streamed by Crapaud TV, as it has these past few seasons.
Could be due to a lack of interest among Crapauds of course. Talking of Crapauds they managed to win a game last week. 3-0 against an Essex/Suffolk Border League representative side is not to be sniffed at.
So the 'Crapauds' may go into Saturday's match with an air of confidence.
Our lads have been playing together regularly for months now so we must be favourites. They will have been well drilled by the coaches as well but the Muratti is the sort of game that's won by the team that really wants it when they cross that white line.
Believe that's the team in green and white.
Keep it Green
Allies led Verts!
