Great effort yesterday, but in truth, with missing first choice full backs, against a very impressive side, it was likely to be just too tough. I thought that the turning point came with Oliyide's injury. A quick substitution, positional changes, hesitation, and Borehamwood took full advantage within seconds.

I totally agree with the poorer match experience that segregation and heavy stewarding brings. It would be unthinkable to have to tolerate such an atmosphere week in week out. Violence may be more prevalent at Conference National level, but if Borehamwood can stage Arsenal Ladies' games with 4 figure crowds and no excessive stewarding or segregation, then this should not have been an issue yesterday for a sub-500 crowd. Though in fairness, what if 2000 had turned up? A great stand incidentally. Well done Borehamwood!
