Blues look for bouncebackability
Blues will look to bounce back from their FA Cup exit at Tooting & Mitcham United when they travel to Maidenhead to face Hayes & Yeading in another key Vanarama Conference South game.
The Blues will face a familiar face as striker – and sometime defender, midfielder and keeper – Cliff Akurang has continued his nomadic career by joining Hayes having left the ProKit UK Stadium in the summer to join Ryman League side Leiston.
The Middlesex side, who four years after selling one ground and demolishing another have still to build a Conference-standard ground, are one place behind the Blues with eight points from 11 games. Like the Blues, they fell at the first hurdle in the FA Cup, and Stortford will look to repeat last year’s away victory against them when they came from 2-0 down to win 3-2.
The return game in March finished goalless and Hayes’ late season plummet down the table saw them only avoid relegation due to Hereford’s expulsion from the Conference.
If you can’t make it to Maidenhead, Blues U-21s return to the ProKit UK Stadium on Saturday to face Chelmsford City.
The young Blues have scored ten goals in their first two league games, and they would appreciate support.
Kick-off is at 2pm, with admission for over-11s priced at just £3.
