    Before anyone starts seriously planning a demonstration, please bear in mind: If you arrange a demonstration with the best intentions, there's a strong chance it will turn in to a general demonstration at the running of the club If you demonstrate audibly against anything it will affect the...

    Another blank Saturday?

    Given that Millwall will probably beat Hayes in the replay it would appear likely that we won't be playing them away in League 1 on the 2nd January.
