The View From The Dugout

Saturday was a really good day for the club as we faced our second FA Cup game of the season in front of a very healthy crowd at Stoneylands.

On the pitch, Kempston Rovers from the level above us played their part in an entertaining tie that was settled by the drama of a penalty shootout to put us in the hat for the First Round Qualifying draw.

Off the pitch, the lads once again had brilliant support behind them as supporters flocked to Stoneylands, like they did for our previous round victory over Northampton ON Chenecks.

What was especially great to see was the number of young Long Melford Colts players who were gathered at various spots around the ground, cheering the team on and perhaps even casting their minds forward to featuring in this prestigious competition themselves one day.

The Village’s two football clubs have an exciting future ahead together with the development of the new clubhouse that will also hopefully bring even more of the community over to Stoneylands.

We would love everyone in Long Melford and the surrounding areas to feel that this is their club, have pride in what is going on over here for boys, girls and adults, and maybe even play their part in helping the clubs continue to grow together.

The players and management would like to thank everyone who has supported us in the FA Cup so far, and hope even more of you will turn out for the next round, which comes next Tuesday night at home again to Cheshunt FC, a club from two levels above.

While it will be a tall order for us to come through against such a strong side, we believe that with the Village coming together again, it will give us the best chance of progressing as far as the club ever has in the world’s oldest domestic cup competition.

Maybe the magic of the FA Cup will strike here, and if it does we’d love to share it with you.

Hope to see you next Tuesday...
