The games have been coming thick and fast in December and continue to do so. We picked up six valuable points against St Ives and Stratford. The first snow of this Winter put paid to the Royston game and, at the time of writing these notes, we sit second in the table with our away game to Hitchin still to come. Tonight’s game is another big one against the newcomers to this League, Hereford. They are going well and will want to pick up points to make up ground on those of us above them in the League following their recent FA Cup exploits.
All these games in December have given us a chance to continue selling our 25th Anniversary Draw tickets. The draw date is now confirmed for Saturday 23 December 2017 after the home game versus Dunstable. Tickets cost £5 each and can be bought at home games before the match or on-line at:
- The first prize will be 50% of the money raised and, with sales so far, that prize stands to be £150+. Thank you to everyone who has bought tickets so far – we really do appreciate it.
- The second prize will be 2 seats on the team bus for the away trip to Gosport on March 10th next year – kindly donated by the Club.
- Third prize is a signed replica shirt from this season's squad – kindly donated by the Club.
