Double Trophy congrats
Not only have the Greens reached the last eight of the Velocity Trophy with a 2-1 win at Hythe (Sid Solis's 4th minute goal cancelled out by Keagan Cole, 14mins, before Kezie Ibe got a winner just before half-time - info courtesy of the Bostik League's Livescores page), we have had another win the FA Trophy ... sort of. Dan Purdue's heroics and the penalty shoot-out victory at Slough has given Hendon our second Performance of the Month Award.
Well done chaps.
Bath City revisted
Like many supporters I love looking back at historical cogitations, past clashes and the like. I like to think the history book repeats itself - it often does. Bath City 1998/99 part of a cup run. In defeating Bath, enter Notts County. Similar league results galvanized by the cup run. Similar understandable desires. There's your incentive chaps.
This little mini-league of late - still clearly in operation. Margate by all social media accounts played out their socks and were unlucky. Very fine margins. Lots of woodwork being struck amongst ourselves. I'm biased, but maintain we are, out the four teams, the ones with the unpredictable components. Slough, Margate and Bath all look remarkably similar to me. All capable of defeating each other. Battle-lines drawn, I think this comes down to utilisation of the flanks. They have muscle where you would expect it, they well be exposed to something unfamiliar. Fascinating clash.
Challenging yes, we do our jobs on the day - we re-write history.
Out of the Reuters News Wires..
Or however it's done - Some of the forementioned muscle has recently departed - that's left Bath City, not this mortal realm. Forward Marvin Morgan has left. They are really struggling for goals - and the talismans just left.
Frightened of facing the 'greens' - Clearly to daunting a proposition - I get that!
Joking aside, I think that is a favourable break.
Can't wait - Let's go!

I played against Morgan at Power League once whilst he was at Wycombe. The guy was magnificent. Mind you, Fabio Valenti was magnificent when playing against him at Power League more than once. James Courtnage, less so.
