What if ...

… Sam Higgins had not missed a first-half penalty for East Thurrock United at Maidstone United on Saturday? If East Thurrock had managed a draw against Maidstone, then we would now be one point behind the Stones (well ahead of the Rocks – what happened to Sticks). Our defeat at Enfield Town on 10 January was one of the two matches Aryan Tajbaksh played in when he should have been suspended.

Would the Ryman League have ordered the match to be replayed – which is in the League rules – because the outcome might have decided the League title and the last playoff place? There is certainly a compelling argument for it. With three points and a 16-goal difference separating us and Maidstone, it is entirely reasonable to assume that a replayed game would not turn that gap around in a replayed match (if the match was to be replayed, the 1–0 scoreline would be expunged – sadly my broken phone and the miserable match that day can’t be expunged from the memory so easily).

It is a crazy situation that should not have happened.
