    Efe's game tonight

    Does anyone else think this is a scandalous match? The idea behind the game is to help raise money towards a £300,000 FA fine. The offence was fraud. They took money given to them by the FA for ground improvements and used it for something else. I can understand the footballing world rallying...

    First defeat this season. At least I got a full house so my debt came down. Rochford FC - Debden Rockets 2 - 4 19450 spectators arrived at The Golden Cross Arena, where weather conditions were pretty good for football. Fans from both teams had been eagerly awaiting this Essex derby and were...
