There isn’t a significant distance between us and Potton United off the pitch. But, on the pitch, we have drifted poles apart. The Royals were two-time champions of the United Counties League Premier Division in the 1980s. Neither times were on our watch, however. In fact, we’d been out of the picture for two clear terms before their first success in 1986-7. Mind you, we found them a tough nut to crack when we were equals; recording a trio of wins from six league encounters our record.
To be honest, there was also a seventh meeting to cap it some time after we’d been parted. The Royals won it, though; ending our 1989-90 FA Vase run in their second title campaign.
