  2. Ref Watch FA Youth Cup MK Dons A

    All three officials will be making the short journey from Northampton to Milton Keynes. They've put an Assistant Head Teacher in charge of the kids tomorrow - Wayne Chalmers. He was the referee who abandoned the Didcot v Hereford match earlier this year after crowd trouble. He will be assisted...
  3. Ref Watch ..... Stevenage A Checkatrade

    I'm not going to waste a lot of time on this because: a) it's the Checkatrade b) the referee could well change as he pulled out of his Cup game Saturday. So just an updated version of what I wrote a few weeks back. Tomorrow's referee is the rapidly balding Graham Horwood from Luton, in his...
  4. 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...
  5. Ref Watch ..... Cheltenham H

    A mere 1,245 days and 193 refwatches ago, we won a home League match on a Tuesday evening! Even that was courtesy of a late winner after Mohsni had earlier been sent off. On the face of it, we will never get a better chance to end that record than against a Cheltenham team in free-fall who...
  6. Ref Watch ......... Wycombe A

    Our last three matches at Wycombe have gone ... lose ... win ... lose - our turn next ! This refwatch is very much a cut and paste for me as it is the same official we had for the Chester Cup defeat just 5 weeks ago - our last defeat ! Saturday's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his...

    Hereford on the way out

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/dec/10/hereford-united-suspended-fa-football Another club on the verge of disappearing forever for probably one day's wages for a over-rated Premier$hite superstar. Feel for their supporters, could have easily been us at one stage. Here's hoping...
  8. Ref Watch ....... Tranmere A

    We haven’t won at Tranmere for 20 years, so 3 points there is overdue. My best memory of Tranmere away games is a Colin Flatt double in our 2-1 win in 1967. The man in charge is fourth year referee Carl Berry from Cheam in Surrey, so quite a trek for him too, although as the UK and...
  9. Ref Watch Cup Refwatch .... Chester H

    It's just a few weeks short of 10 years since we last hosted Chester at the Hall; a late, late goal from substitute, Laurie Dudfield was the only score of the match. My first memories of Chester home matches were the two 5-1 home wins in successive seasons in the mid-60s. Away games are clearly...

    Hereford United

    Hereford have this afternoon been thrown out of the Football Conference. Terrible shame, I have been to Edgar Street on a couple of occasions and it was a very friendly and welcoming football club. Lets hope they can find a league to play in and work their way back up to the Football League.
  11. Ref Watch ........... Mansfield A

    Tomorrow's referee is Simon Hooper from Swindon refereeing Southend for the fourth time in his 6th season as a League referee. His most recent was the early season home draw with Northampton in 2011/12 - yellows for Mohsni, Grant and Phillips and 2 yellows and a red for them. His previous visit...
  12. Ref Watch ........ Rochdale H

    Tomorrow's referee is Graham Horwood from Luton, in his 5th year as a League referee and refereeing his 5th Southend home game. These five years are either side of a two year gap when he was demoted for performance reasons. As a result his last couple of visits to the Hall have been as an...
  13. Strikers Who Leave And Score Goals...

    Matt Harrold - Useless for us, only scored 3 in 2 seasons. Has since gone on to play for Wycombe, Shrewsbury & currently Bristol Rovers. Has scored a total of 45 goals since leaving. Gary Hooper - Usually 3rd choice behind Freddy & Foran (Unbelievably). Currently with Norwich in the Prem. Since...

    Latest Rumours Barker at Hereford

    Rumour has it Barker is not in Madrid and actually played for Hereford last night in a friendly....and scored. Further rumours suggest he was told on Sunday he is not part of Brown's plans and is free to look for another club.
  16. Ref Watch ....... Rochdale

    Our last eleven home matches against Rochale have produced 8 wins and 3 draws. The last home defeat was in 1985. These matches included a 4 goal haul, two 5s and an incredible recovery from 3-0 down at half time for a point. Anyway, the man in charge tomorrow is second year referee Carl Berry...

    Looking at Timlin today, he reminded me of Ricky Rayment. Any other lookalikes?

    We are now favourites to go up .....in my opinion.

    We are now favourites to get promotion and here's why. The odds for Saturdays games are as follows- Crawley are 8/11 to win Torquay are 5/4 to win Southend 2/7 to win So according to the bookies we are clear favourites out of the 3 to get a win. They make Crawley our biggest danger. But-...

    Now I know its clutching at straws but if the strange things were to happen and Torquay only draw the last home game .And crawley drew against A Battleing Hereford .then we beat Oxford then the last sataday would be fun with the other two away and us at home . Still at worse we have cemented our...
