Dulwich Hamlet: Remember Them?

Can we say that Dulwich Hamlet are (almost) synonymous with non-league football? The name itself evokes a strong link with the beautiful game lower down the ladder. Well. It does for us, at least. You can accuse us of being over-romantic later. The Hamlet’s tale is a long one too, …

Gorleston: Remember Them?

Tamworth: Remember Them?

In two shakes of the Lambs’ tail, here’s the up-and-down story of how Boro’ fared against the team from Tamworth over the years. Not quite a bogey team for us, the Staffordshire side did have their moments at our expense. Then again, we returned the favour too. At worst, we …

Halifax Town: Remember Them?

Some clubs we’ve come up against over the years find themselves on a proper rollercoaster ride; glorious highs and heartbreaking lows. We suppose it helps to keep things interesting, but that’s not good for the heart? In some cases, however, such rides can come to an abrupt end. And that …

Ipswich Town: Remember Them?

For clubs like Ipswich Town that have seen such riches, the idea of meeting humble lads such as ourselves on equal terms must come as a shock? From times longer ago, we’re probably talking Swindon Town or Newcastle United; teams we only ever got the chance to meet in the …

Cove: Remember Them?

We’re all for cup draws that pair you with a team you wouldn’t normally meet. And it’s fair to say that Cove Football Club are a pretty good example of that; a side from Hampshire that we reckon you won’t know much about. And that goes for older Boro’ fans …

Maidenhead United: Remember Them?

The first time we heard of Maidenhead United was when John Dreyer left us to manage ’em in 2003. But that’s just one part of the tale. Of course it is. Even we can’t waffle on about a minor moment at the end of the 2002-3 season. What we can …

Hereford United: Remember Them?

You can’t beat a bit of Bully – unless it’s Hereford United and those Bulls have beaten us again. But was that always the case? After all, all those red flashes of our home kit could be like a red rag to a, well, y’know. The short answer is “no”. It …

Hastings United: Remember Them?

You’d think that Hastings United must be more than used to puns or jokes that involve them and “battle” thanks to an obvious event in history. But they don’t do themselves too many favours in that sense either; their nickname ‘The Arrows’ is clearly leaning on the demise of ol’ …
