Played under John Gidman in a season we almost got relegated and as Robbo says then under Peter  Morris when we got promoted - as runners up to Nuneton despite a points deduction - and what a season that was.

Just been told that he managed you for a few years. What was he like ?

He is having a bit of a tough time here at the moment as the footie is poor and the results likewise.

I think he can turn it round and I like his football ethos.

Fond memories of his time here. Took charge when we were bottom of the Southern League Premier (pre Conf North / South days) and led us to the 'Great Escape'. Perhaps unfortunate in his one full season in charge to come up against Steve Evans' Boston United; although Mills did lead us to THAT Boxing Day win at their place. Left us early the next season following a budget cut and we were relegated within 18 months.

2 mins 47 sec - Setch's quip about 'being due a home draw' wasted on the press gang  :watching:

Does the dual contract mean St Neots retain his Southern League registration?


Thanks. So is this a step towards getting him back at the club on a permanent basis?

News of former Linnets / Jack Friend

According to today's EDP Jack Friend scored his eighth goal in four games for Wisbech v Mildenhall in the Vase on Saturday. Michael Frew also turned out for Wisbech and Steve Spriggs for Mildenhall. Report also mentioned Luke Kennedy, name rings a bell, was he on loan to us at some point? From Peterborough?

Once we get past Tuesday's game, we should start to see players coming back. Quigley's ban finishes for one. I hope tiredness doesn't affect us like it did against Kettering, as some of the lads literally had nothing left in the tank as they came off the pitch. Mills also managed the full 90 which was pleasing to see.

Chesham were a good side that passed the ball around well. So were Frome. We lost both corresponding fixtures last season too, so it shows we don't have the fear factor and are capable of competing with those teams.

I can't wait for Tuesday's game if I'm honest!

With a tricky looking cup tie  on Saturday with lots of s riding on it I think a tough away game on Tuesday is something our threadbare squad could do without. Still let's hope the squad can keep the momentum going and, as Robbo says, we'll hopefully have a few bodies back for Saturday.

An excellent result!!.....Sounds as if Quigz had a great game - he really does seem to be back to his original best now.Will e have any of those missing today, available for Biggleswade?
Erm, Quiqz wasn't playing, he is suspended.

Whoops - April 1st?! Picked up from some wag on the live thread that he was having a great game!

Think I misread the same tweet Rod! What it actually said was Quigs was kicking and heading every ball FROM THE STANDS  :scarf:

Quite understandably IMO the Trust will only fund if and when they have a degree of inflence in the running of the club?

I am not currently a Trust member.

I am not a Trust member either but fully agree with Rod. IMO The Trust should not (and will not) just 'hand over' any of its monies to the club's owner. Contrary to the perception of some on this forum, whilst I don't personally know any Trust members, I can't believe any such members are in it for long term personal financial gain or even a nice day out in the sponsor's lounge  :banghead;

General Discussion / Re: FA Cup 2nd Qual rd
« on: September 05, 2016, 07:58:16 PM »
Played them twice in the Trophy and once in the Cup:  drawn one, lost two.
The cup meeting was in 1991-92, Harlow went on to the First Round and lost 7-0 to Peterborough

As Sworn 2 suggests, the FA Cup match was a bit 'fiery' from my recollection; I think Harlow finished with 10 men. Shaughan Farrow would have been Lynn manager at the time?

I also recall we got knocked out of the East Anglian Cup at Harlow around the same time - whatever happened to that competition?  :oldman"

Also remember FA Cup 'giantkillings' by Evesham, Boston FC, Halstead, Chalfont St Peter...

Surely a Brigg victory on Saturday would rank up there. Would they be the lowest level side to put us out of the cup since that Parson Drove game? It seems like Brigg play at a similar level to our reserves. Mind you I remember we got knocked out of the FA Vase by Norwich United in the same season that our reserves did the double over them.

I agree with you AGAIN Mallard should be a very interesting evening. Could it be standing room only? Let's hope so.

Did Buster take all the chairs with him?

Should also mention Forest Green only one game away from the football league. We played in the Midland Division with them for a number of seasons in the late 80s / 90s. I seem to remember they changed their name to Stroud for a few years before reverting back to Forest Green Rovers. They have to play Grimsby in the final after Grimsby edged past another old adversary of Lynn, Braintree Town in the semi finals.

How can you forget the prestigious Evans Halshaw Floodlit cup? We were in a group with Corby and Grantham, hence the 5th trip to Spalding

AP i remember him as a terrible signing kettering only to pleased to off load.

You're probably right Sworn 2. Lynn teams of late 80s early 90s were hardly world beaters. I do, however, remember Horwood scoring in an away win at Spalding. It was the season that Grantham groundshared with them. I think we ended up going there five times that season.
