the real fa cup

Match Report


Unknown Navvy, Chalfont St Peters, Lewes, Phil Collins. Not much else, let’s be frank.

What A Spectacle!

A linesman (sorry, assistant referee) with glasses? And why do Ashford Town (Middx) still need the ‘Middx’? MATT ALLARD’S BACK!


Regular visitor, Stuart Fuller from The Ball is Round does … Scottish Play, Tiffany Mitchell, Paul Alcock and a peeking-through-fingers bum-squeaker of a cup win.

Clapton Unplugged

Barry’s Meat Market. Old Spotted Dog. Forward Rolls. Boombox. Edwardian Throne. Socialist. Beard. Saga Coach Tour. Glen Wilson goes to Clapton.

Magic Of The Mug

Phil Ascough on under 19 attendances, Pete Mitchell, mugs behind the goal and, ultimately, Barton Town Old Boys’ cup win.

Unchartered Territory

“And the wall of faces that framed the field until now bounces, turns and spreads to cover all available concrete, like liquid poured into a football ground mould” – Glen Wilson
