Weymouth: Remember Them?

Oh, this lot? They’re such Terras – and quite literally so, given it’s the nickname that Weymouth Football Club are known by. We even think that intro is worthy of a cheeky little “wehhhh!” in deference to our Dorset chums. Two crackerjack puns and we haven’t even got onto our …

Leigh RMI: Remember Them?

It’s not unusual, every so often, for an unknown team to come from nowhere and become your equals; Leigh RMI being an example. You could point at sides like Yeovil Town or Nigel Clough’s Burton Albion popping up in the Championship too. Or Barnsley in the Premier League. Gosh – …

Sheffield Wednesday: Remember Them?

For a long time, just the idea that we’d ever play a ‘big’ team like Sheffield Wednesday on equal terms seemed so out there. When we first began knocking the ball around on the King George V playing fields, who knew that it was the start of an odyssey that’d …

Halstead Town: Remember Them?

Yet another team from our ‘once-and-never-again’ ledger, us and Halstead Town have always been poles apart in footballing terms. If you had us down as two circles on a Venn diagram, it seems hard to imagine how they’d ever overlap. And yet the very fact that we’ve turned up to …

Nuneaton, Hampton & Richmond, Scar... Eastbourne Borough are one of many Boro's that we've been up against over the years

Eastbourne Borough: Remember Them?

Nuneaton, Hampton & Richmond, Scar… Eastbourne Borough are one of many Boro’s that we’ve been up against over the years. Hang on, we also forgot Desborough Town too. But we feel that’s our point well and truly made. Anyway, coming across another bone fide ‘Borough’ has a unique feel to …

Here's one team from our humble county that doesn't get too much of a mention in the Boro' tale. So, where do Hoddesdon Town fit?

Hoddesdon Town: Remember Them?

Here’s one team from our humble county that doesn’t get too much of a mention in the Boro’ tale. So, where exactly do Hoddesdon Town fit in the grand scheme of things? After all, it isn’t like we ran into them year after year down in the Isthmian League. Ware? …

Staines Town: Remember Them?

Long before Ali G had put the name of Staines in lights, Boro’ had already been there and done that in battles with the Swans. That said, we don’t quite have the cultural clout of Sacha Baron Cohen and our seven meetings with them (to date) aren’t exactly the stuff …

Chesterfield: Remember Them?

Once upon a time, we went arm-in-arm with Chesterfield into League One. The Spireites dazzled all before them on their way the 2010-1 League Two title. Us, as mere mortals, could only honour them by following humbly in the playoffs. Luckily, though, we then unlinked our arms and let go; …

Tilbury: Remember Them?

Sittin’ by the docks – not a bay, we watched the Boro’ go to play; Tilbury were the reason we were there. But what’s the story? The town is more famous, we’d reckon, for being one of the UK’s biggest sea ports. Football? Not so much. And yet, if our …

The name 'Thrapston Venturas' could easily be that of a mid-2010s indie band. But they're actually someone we've played against!

Thrapston Venturas: Remember Them?

The name ‘Thrapston Venturas’ could easily be that of a mid-2010s indie band, don’t you think? But they’re actually someone we’ve played against! No foolin’! Of course, you would’ve needed to have been around during the very early times of Stevenage Borough Football Club to know it. To be honest, …
