Essex Leopards v Nottingham Hoods, 13th Oct 2018; Rory Winter

Blues 0 Kingstonian 3

Stortford’s poorest league performance of the season saw the K’s move into second place in the Bostik League table following this comfortable win for the visitors. It had been a different story early on with Stortford having had the chances to go in front, but after former Blue Elliott Buchanan had given the visitors the…

Blast from the past

Until 2018’s trip to Weymouth – with Jamie Cureton’s goal sealing a draw – we hadn’t played on this date since 2004 when we played Watford in a Herts Senior Cup game.  Watford fielded a reserve team with little or no first team experience – but that made for a very closely matched game and…

A LOOK BACK AT BLUES’ GAMES ON JANUARY 5th By Andrew Cornell A combination of bad weather and a lack of midweek games so soon after the holiday games means there have been very few games played on this date, only 8 going back as far as 1900. There has only been one game at…

Andrew Cornell looks back at the Blue Brazil’s previous games on January 1st Our last three game on New Year’s Day have all been at home and have resulted in exactly zero points and a goal difference of 1-11. So maybe it was best that we didn’t play today. But we’ll ignore those games and…

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…

Late heartbreak for Blues

Brightlingsea Regent 1 Blues 0 AARON Condon’s 93rd minute goal saw Blues end 2018 on a low note as they slipped to defeat at strugglers Brightlingsea, on Saturday. In a game that could be used as a cure for insomnia, Blues finished with ten men as Boxing Day’s hero Ryan Henshaw received a straight red…
