Blast from the past

Andrew Cornell looks back at Blues’ games on January 1st   In 2017 we had a derby with Chelmsford here, losing 3-1, while in 2015 we had a very forgettable thrashing by Boreham Wood. In 2012 and 2013 after several years losing to Braintree on New Years Day it was a change for two years…

Blast from the past

Andrew Cornell looks back at Blues games on December 31st Not so many games on this date as you might expect. Unbelievably the last time it happened – and the only time in the last 25 years – the Conference scheduled us to play away to Weymouth.   Weymouth opened brightly with Brian Dutton having…

Blast from the past

Andrew Cornell looks back at Blues games on December 30th   In 1999 we played Chertsey Town away in an Isthmian League game billed as the last game of the century. Pedants will argue that it was actually the last game of the 90s and clever marketing included a raffle with a prize of a…

Blast from the past

Andrew Cornell looks back at Blues games on December 28th In 2013 on this date we played a Hertfordshire derby on the Saturday following Christmas and Boreham Wood were the visitors.

Biggleswade Town 2 Blues 2

BLUES twice fought back from a goal down to take a share OK Evo-Stik Premier points, on   Boxing Day. It was a game Stortford should have won having had most of the possession but they were made to pay for not dealing with a couple of Biggleswade free-kicks. Top scorer Jason Williams returned after his…
