The final home game of a very underwhelming season…

Woking arrived needing all three points to keep alive their slim play-off hopes; based upon this performance, it didn’t really show…

Woking Players Warming Up…

One Conference game left at Chester next Saturday, then it’s back to Conference North / South. The general consensus appears to be that South would be preferable as it would involve trips to the South Coast. I’m hoping for North though, as I really fancy a trip to FC United of Manchester…

Into the final of the Birmingham Senior Cup after extra time and penalties…

I’m still not quite sure how Nuneaton managed to win this one. West Brom bossed the game for the majority of normal time before Rob Ogleby equalised late on…

Extra time drifted by without incident before Nuneaton took it in the shoot out.

Walsall 1 Fleetwood Town 0

Banks’s Stadium… Saturday April 11th… 3pm

Attendance: 3,534

Ticket: £22.50 – Programme: £3

Two firsts… A first ever trip to Walsall, and matches in all four divisions attended in a single season (five with the Conference)…

A late winner for Walsall, taking a little pressure off at the wrong end of Division 1 and probably ending Fleetwood’s Play-Off hopes…

Carlisle rescued a vital point with the last kick of the game on a very wet Good Friday…

Portsmouth will feel that they did enough to win the game but their blatant time wasting came back to haunt them at the death…
