It might surprise you – but we’re still yet to take on Bishop’s Stortford in a league game since our first meeting in 1985. All our encounters to date are cup clashes; Boro’ coming out on top more often than not as things stand. It’s also now more than a quarter of a century since our last ‘competitive’ meeting. And that’s if you can call the Eastern Floodlit League on those terms…?

Services to: LONDON LIVERPOOL STREET, CAMBRIDGE
The ground is roughly 1.5 miles from the station and it takes about 35 minutes to walk. It should be possible to exit the station on the right hand side (not the main entrance) via a footbridge. Assuming you leave the station this way, walk up through a small car park on the right of the Three Tuns pub.
From here, go straight on up Warwick Road for 0.5 miles. At the end of the road, it’s a swift left-right combination; first for Haymeads Lane and then onto the A1250 Dunmow Road. Keep going along Dunmow Road, using the road signs to help if you need at the roundabout along the way.
After more than half a mile, take the left turn into Woodside Lane.
