Somebody on Workington's forum has been doing their research...


"A match we should win but we will have to on our guard in our own penalty area and the referee has not to be fooled by the Stourbridge players falling and diving about. One of their players has scored 11 pens so far this season and 39 in the last 3. I can't remember us having 1 this season."


A case of putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with 427!

Already discussed this with TRM, but this year I can't think of 1 iffy one, I've seen? Sutton apparently, but that was handball!

Let Workington worry about our penalty record i say! Their concern rather than our "diving" players should be more our ability to have such an amount of possession in the box to win said penalties in the first place!

It is a remarkable amount of penalties to a supporter of any other team but only the Sutton penalty was a bit dodgy this season from the games I've been to.

I hope very much we are talking about Ulster Jim here, although I'm struggling to think of anyone else that TRM could be hinting at?? Mmmm,I wonder....

Apart from molesting sheep,does anyone know if there is anything of interest to do in Shap on the Friday night? That is potentially where we are staying. I fear I could be tucked up in bed by 9pm!

From Wikipedia...

"The village has three pubs, a small supermarket, a fish and chip shop, an antique book shop, a butcher's shop, a primary school, a newsagent's, a coffee shop, a ceramic art studio called Edge Ceramics, a fire station, a bank (only open 4 hours a week), a shoe shop (New Balance factory shop) an Anglican church and 3 B&B/ Hostels."

No nightclubs or knocking shops, from the look of things. Any place where the sixth biggest attraction is an antique bookshop can't be up to much!

Purely in terms of support, this game is starting to assume big proportions now. We are likely to have our biggest travelling support for many years for a game of any significant distance (other than Plymouth, of course, and perhaps that day at Frome as well).

The Plymouth game saw a lot of "day-trippers" which I am not knocking at all, but for most of us regulars it didn't quite feel like a proper Stour game. To me it was like being amongst another set of supporters for the day. All the regulars were there but not as a communal group. I hope this will be a bit different and we will truly be one big "Yellow Army" for the day.

I think I'm going to book for a week next summer!

I've got a feeling that my initial image of the native women isn't going to be too far from the truth!

Well said my friend. The pride and passion we show for our clubs outweighs by far that of the so called glamour clubs. Very much looking forward to seeing you all up there next weekend. Good to hear that you have a decent playing surface too,should make for an excellent game of football. Don't worry about your ground being scruffy,its a PROPER old ground. Far better than some soul-less,new,rent-a-stand type ground. Welcome to our forum too!
