I took the opportunity to visit Stokenchurch for a fixture versus a fellow first team, something that is not easy in the Hellenic League as the lower divisions are crammed with reserve and development teams. In fact, they won’t host another first team until December.

Today was 8th v 5th, although it was only the third league match of the season for the hosts. Long Crendon, who are new into the league this season, had played four games before today. If the visitors had put as much effort in to playing, as they did to moaning constantly at the Referee, then this might have been a more even contest.

I started off today at a ground I had visited previously on 11th February 2012, when I saw Old Hamptonians 3 Dorking 4, in a Southern Combination Cup match. Today’s game was nowhere near as entertaining. Very few chances and Kings missed a chance to double their lead when they had a penalty saved just before the hour mark.
