Looking at our head-to-head record against Marlow, the goals were never really in short supply when we met over the years. We started things off by thumping the Blues by five goals at their place in November 1984. But we were abruptly parted from ’em at the end of the 1984-5 campaign; the Blues moved into Division Two South of the Isthmian League. It wasn’t until our ill-fated 1987-8 Division One campaign that we were reunited; relegation for us seeing us drift apart once again.
Our fortunes that season couldn’t have been more different. The Blues had come up to Division One in summer 1987 and, unlike us, saw success at the right end of the table. Their double ton (100 goals and 100 points) earned them promotion up into the Premier Division as champions. And it’d eventually be there, during the 1992-3 campaign, we’d come back together. This time, however, it was us moving in an upwardly direction; the Blues relegated to Division One in 1995.
