Molesey 1 Romford 3. FA Trophy Preliminary Round

Molesey are one of the nonleague teams I watch where one is guaranteed a combative and feisty game, and thats a good thing. Crowds are never massive and not often more than 150 when I attend. This was a good game and overall a draw would have been a fair result.

A few things of note:

  • Shirt pulling is endemic and rarely seen by the officials and often seen by the camera. Any clamping down on this at a nonleague level has not happened00006510
  • Arguing with the refereee is endemic even when the player in question is clearly in the wrong
  • Teams are getting more colourful. Not sure how many different colours were evident at this game, but hair, boots and shirts were all fascinating.00006553
  • Players do not need to be in perfect physical shape to play football well at this level. 00006561

  1. Think you being generous for the attendance there. Haven’t seen them get near 100 for a long time!!

    • Made me smile…..not sure how many wee that day but up to 2.55pm there were 3 people….the romford fans made more noise than the rest, maybe 10 of them, but size wise we might count them at 20 lol…. i love coming here….the players really try hard…..and the burgers are good…..

      • No more chips at Stompond the van is closed down. Only sarnies from the bar now.
        Was there Wednesday for the derby at home v Chertsey. Rubbish game but reckon 120 there.

      • Went to the Greenwich cup game…..dismal…..and starved my way through……kinda vowed not to go again this season…..if I am not watching Brentford, Carshalton is a good option, nice club too

      • was at that too. neglecting my Orient for them this season. mind you that’s not a bad thing!
