Andrew Cornell looks back at Blues’ games on March 5th Due to the vagaries of the fixture list we have only played one home game on this date since 1960 and only one home league game since 1938. Half a century ago a 3-1 win over St Albans City saw us through to our second…

Andrew Cornell looks back at Blues’ games on March 2nd There have been no games for a few years on this date but by an interesting coincidence the last two games have been against Aylesbury United and there were plenty of goals to see. In 2004 we hosted The Ducks on this ground and the…
