    Oxley Injured Again

    Contracts - renew or not?

    As usual at our club and at most FL clubs we're set to see quite a few of our key players see their contracts expire if they aren't offered a new deal. We've lost Barry Corr, Dan Bentley and Jack Payne through this way in the past two years and whilst some were always going to leave you'd think...

  14. Ref Watch ..... Oxford H

    We have a slight edge over Oxford in League games with 17 wins to their 16 and we haven't lost to them at home since Drewe Broughton was sent off and Mark Rawle scored their winner in 2003. Tomorrow's referee is the rapidly balding Graham Horwood from Luton, in his 8th year as a League referee...

  18. The Future Looks Bright.

    No, not the new stadium, forget about all that nonsense. SUFC under-15s not only won the tournament and trophy in Berlin in Germany, but won all seven matches, and without conceding a single goal. They beat Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 in the final. Absolutely superb from the young lads...
  19. Ref Watch ...... Peterborough A

    League matches against Peterborough are tied at 19 wins apiece. Saturday gives us the opportunity to edge ahead with our first "double" of the season. The referee is relatively inexperienced in only his second season as a League referee. He is Bristol-born Kevin Johnson from Weston-Super-Mare...
  20. Ref Watch ..... Millwall H

    A quick return to Roots Hall for Millwall, but a referee whose last visit was somewhat longer ago. The referee for tomorrow's early kick-off is Kevin Wright from Yaxley near Peterborough - let's hope he's the right man for the job. His last visit was way back in 2009/10 for the 2-1 defeat by...
