Saffron Walden Town

First Played: 1981-2

Win Rate: 50% (from 30 games)

Last Updated: 07 July 2021

Saffron Walden Town are a surprisingly familiar opponent for us, with frequent cup clashes during the 1980s and 1990s. The Wardens are a pretty ancient club in footballing terms all told; forming in 1872. They’d been going more than 100 years by the time we first met. Yet it didn’t count for anything as the new upstarts from Boro’ won a 1981-2 East Anglian Cup tie at home.

More than half (17) of our total matches (30) have come in the Eastern Floodlit League (or its many other names over the years). Boro’ have 15 victories to their name, whereas 10 is the total win count for the Wardens. Last time we took a peek, they were part of the Essex Senior League. So, it could be a while before we add any more meetings to our record.
