Maldon & Tiptree: Remember Them?

Maldon & Tiptree: Remember Them?

Boro’ have taken on their fair share of opponents down the years and some of those teams have simply been no more than passing acquaintances, while there are others that have become – well – annoyingly familiar. For all the many times we’ve faced teams like Woking, there have been rare match-ups too. So, we’re asking, where do Maldon & Tiptree stand in the grand scheme of things?

To be honest, there’s no good reason for The Jammers to mean much to Boro’ fans. We don’t mean to be overly harsh or anything, but it’s like that – and that’s the way it is. We’ve never played them in a competitive fixture, after all. In fact, the only time we took to the same field as the Essex club in recent years was a friendly in summer 2015. And that was after we pinched their boss, Kevin Watson. So, we may struggle with this one…



Maldon & Tiptree: Us And Them

It’s no surprise that Boro’ have never crossed the same path as Maldon & Tiptree. Maldon Town – as they were known until 2010 – were a member of the Essex League during the time we were bumming around the lower reaches of the Isthmian League. No, not even the FA Trophy or FA Vase paired us together. The Jammers did eventually join the Isthmian League; the move coming back in 2005. And it’s there that you’ll still find ’em.

Maldon & Tiptree took their Isthmian League bow in the Premier Division – but it didn’t last long. The club were relegated in that debut season, falling into Division One North. The 2012-3 campaign was the closest the Jammers have come to a return, but went down to Thamesmead Town in the playoff final. On pelanties. Ouch! And that’s all we have for you. Lee Boylan, Ollie Berquez and Dwayne Plummer played for them? No? OK…

If you want to know how Tiptree came to be a part of the club’s name, it dates back to 2009. Maldon Town were taken over by the Tiptree United chairman. This happened in September and both sides completed their respective seasons. In April 2010, two was to become one; Tiptree pulling out of the Essex Senior League and incorporated into Maldon Town. And the Jammers nickname? That was voted for by the fans at the same time.

BoroGuide runs the show around here, and has done since that glorious summer of 2002. We're not sure why it was so glorious; maybe it's the delirum of reliving David Seaman watching Ronald Eeeeenyo's lob drift over him. That and Boro' reaching the FAT final at Villa Park – not Wembley.
