Welcome to Roker Park Good evening and welcome back to Roker Park for this Spartan South Midlands League Division One clash between Baldock Town and Kensington Borough. We naturally welcome the players, supporters and officials of tonight’s opponents and hope they enjoy the facilities on offer. We come into this game on the back of another weekend off - fortunately this time not due to the weather, but frustrating nonetheless as we slipped another fixture behind the top two. Leaders Biggleswade put their recent mini-wobble behind them with a convincing 6-1 win at tonight’s opponents Kensington Borough, who seem to have gone off the boil themselves in recent weeks. Harpenden Town, who suffered the disappointment of a Semi-Final league cup exit at home to Wodson Park on Thursday night, left it until the 96th minute before finally seeing off Hadley Wood & Wingate. Speaking to Luke over the weekend though, he is relishing the challenge of chasing down the top two and he has added Stuart Pearson (on loan from Hitchin Town) to his squad in the past week, so that will provide some extra defensive cover. It is going to be a busy schedule between now and the end of the season, so I’m sure Luke may look at making one or two further additions to reinforce his ranks for the run-in. It is a busy fortnight of Football here for us at Roker Park. Following tonight’s game, we are next at home on Saturday when Hadley Wood & Wingate are the visitors. They are the only team we’ve drawn with in the league this season after our 3-3 draw earlier in the campaign. Then a week tonight, we entertain Hillingdon Borough here. After the turmoil of folding a few weeks ago and then changing their mind at the 11th hour, Borough are a side to watch out for on their day. They have an impressive goal difference despite only being in mid-table. On the 25th February, we entertain FA Vase Quarter-Finalists Southall. They have their last eight tie with Cleethorpes Town on Saturday. Although we wish them all the very best, we will be hoping for a Vase hangover when they come to town! The month of February is rounded off with the visit of Winslow United, who have the unfortunate joy of making the long trek on a Tuesday evening. Our seven game run of home fixtures is rounded off on Saturday 4th March when Hatfield Town are the opponents. Producing a programme for each of these fixtures over the next few weeks is going to a big ask, so if anyone would like to contribute any articles for inclusion, please email them to baldocktownfc@gmail.com - they will be gratefully received! As always, if any companies/individuals are interested in sponsoring a game or advertising in the match day programme, please contact the club - baldocktownfc@gmail.com or speak to a committee member.

We are also keen to fill out the Player Sponsorship page, so if you can sponsor one of the lads for just £30.00, they and the club would be very grateful for your support. Finally, thank you so much for your attendance this evening, your continued support is always greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you again for our next home match against Hadley Wood & Wingate on Saturday - 3pm KO.

Enjoy the game,

Lee Rusbridge


Tonight’s opponents - Kensington Borough Kensington Borough are making their debut season in SSML Division One and so far it has gone relatively well for them. Formerly AFC Hillgate before the start of this season, Kensington Borough now groundshare at Amersham Town following a season at London Tigers’ Avenue Park ground on the A40 in Greenford. It has been a mixed bag at times in terms of results, but today’s opponents are one of only three sides to beat leaders Biggleswade this season.

They also romped to a 6-1 win over a Southall side that has gone to reach the last eight of the FA Vase. In the reverse fixture at Amersham, Town ran out 3-0 victors but the result doesn’t tell the whole story. Borough had their moments and pushed Baldock for long periods, but the Reds scored at good times to chalk up another vital three points.

Tuesday 7th February - Spartan South Midlands League Division One

BALDOCK TOWN 1-0 BRIMSDOWN The Reds, who have been left frustrated recently as the weather has disrupted their fixture schedule, showed great resolve to edge past a much-changed visiting side. Brimsdown fielded 10 new signings in their 3-1 win over Hatfield Town the previous Saturday, so much of their previous form and league position coming into this encounter was almost an irrelevance. It was clear from the early stages of this match that it was going to have to be a performance of patience and persistence from the hosts. They did their best to get the ball down on a tricky surface, but Brimsdown were intent on disrupting the flow of the game by any means possible. Despite it being a scrappy half in the main, Baldock had a few decent half chances. Michael King took a lovely touch on the turn before forcing a save from close range. Alex Coppin brought a smart save out of the keeper with a good drive from 25 yards, whilst Anthony James headed over when unmarked in the penalty area. The visitors didn’t create an awful great deal, but their pace in attacking areas made them a threat on the counter. From one such attack they almost took the lead. After Town surrendered possession in the Brimsdown half, an excellent run had a visiting forward in behind, but Jack Farmer did well to stay big and thwart the danger. Baldock started the second half with a bit more purpose to their play and their efforts were rewarded with what proved to be the only goal on 52 minutes. A nice interchange between Luke Gregson and Harry Holland on the edge of the box resulted in the ball finding its way to Anthony James, who volleyed home superbly into the bottom right hand corner. Town had opportunities to double their lead with Alex Coppin having an effort blocked on the line and Sam Perrin grazing the top of the cross bar with a shot from just inside the box. Brimsdown were never out of it though and as Baldock got ragged and nervy as the half wore on, the visitors had a couple of excellent chances of their own. Rob Beckwith did brilliantly to block a goalbound attempt on the line, whilst Farmer made a good stop to deny a Brimsdown forward minutes later. The visiting number 9 had been a bit of a nuisance all night, putting himself about one minute and then throwing himself to the floor under the slightest of touches the next. He won himself a freekick and although the initial effort was blocked, his resulting cross-cum-shot had Farmer scampering. Fortunately, the frame of the goal came to the rescue. The Reds thought they had wrapped up the points in the closing stages, but the referee ruled out a legitimately scored goal for offside. It wasn’t until after he had given it that he realised that a visiting player was down injured by the corner flag, meaning that he was playing everyone onside. It was relief for him and the home side though when he brought proceedings to a close. This latest win reduces the gap to eight points to second-place Harpenden Town – with still three games in hand. Town: Farmer, Perrin, Payne, Beckwith, Kenna, Furness, Coppin, Gregson, Holland, James, King Subs Not Used: Robertson, Gilbert, Starling

BALDOCK TOWN DEVELOPMENT 4-0 HAMPSTEAD HEATH Baldock Town Development thrashed leaders Hampstead Heath 4-0 on Saturday and with it put pay to their 13-game unbeaten run. Manager Simon Efford had the added bonus of first team manager Luke Gregson and this gave him an opportunity to look at how the players are progressing. Baldock started the game brightly pressing Hampstead all over the pitch. The passing and movement was crisp and quick and it gave the visitors very little time in possession. Town took only six minutes to create their first clear cut chance when Luke Hennessey played a perfect through ball to debutant Russell Bull, but his shot was straight at the keeper. Baldock took the lead on 12 minutes through Luke Gregson. A cross came in from Russell Bull and Gregson was too strong for the centre half as he shrugged off a challenge and put it past the Hampstead Heath goalkeeper. Town continued to play some of the best football they've played this season and the more Baldock pressed Hampstead Heath, they started to take a real hold on the game. The young side had three good chances to extend their lead around the half hour mark through Russell Bull, Luke Hennessey and Connor Gray.

The inevitable second goal came on 34 minutes from a deep free kick. Skipper Dean Laing put the ball into the box and Lee Harman finished after pressurising the defender trying to clear the ball. Baldock made two changes at the break with Sean Blyth and Declan Sayer coming on and they started the second half as they ended the first - giving Hampstead no time on the ball and attacking quickly. On the hour mark the game should have been all over when an excellent through ball by Gregson put Harman in one on one, but he placed his shot wide of the post. On 72 minutes Town made it three. Another free kick taken quickly by Dean Laing over the Hampstead back four found Russell Bull who superbly lobbed the keeper. Baldock further extended their lead with ten minutes to go when an Alex Duff cross was met in the air by Matt Hart. The game finished 4-0 and was by far the most accomplished performance the development side have put in. First team manager Luke Gregson said after the game, “That was really enjoyable out there and I'm really impressed with this development squad. They want to get the ball down and play. All over the pitch we were excellent and the back four were superb. It's 100% better in every aspect in comparison to last season and it was good to be amongst the squad to see them close up as our first team run in of games is going to need good players to help us with our goal of promotion”. Manager Simon Efford was delighted with the win, “That's the biggest high since I've been at the club. This squad are becoming a really good side and the best thing is we are not at our best yet. Their manager was very complimentary after the game about us which was good to hear. I’m looking forward to training and next Saturday’s game already”.

I’m delighted to advise that Baldock Town FC now has its very own club shop. Our kit suppliers Macron Hertfordshire have been putting it together behind the scenes for us and you can now purchase our merchandise online at:

www.klmsports.com If you go to the ”Club Shops” section and select “Baldock Town Football Club”, you can purchase merchandise such as a replica home shirt, winter coats, polo shirts, scarfs and mugs etc. Should you order online, when you come to the payment page, please put in the “Order and Delivery Comments” - “SENIOR CLUB”. This will allow Macron to identify any purchases made by our supporters and they’ll give us a small commission on any sales connected to the Senior club. Alternatively, if you would rather we ordered the items for you, please speak to Club Secretary Lee Rusbridge and he will assist you with your requirements. Also, if you have any suggestions for anything we could look at adding to our Club Shop, by all means speak to us and we’ll discuss it with Macron.

PROUD SPONSOR OF BALDOCK TOWN FC WARM-UP TOPS


“Rusty & Mills Corner” Good evening everyone and welcome to Roker Park. Tonight we welcome Kensington Borough - currently sitting in Xth position with XX pts from XX matches - for the return Division One fixture. Back in October, the Reds ran out 3-0 winners thanks to goals from ‘H’, Kim and Luke. Kensington Borough were only formed in 2012 as AFC Hillgate, promoted from the Middlesex County League to the SSML Division 2 for the 2015/16 season. A fifth place finish saw them promoted to Division One and in the summer of 2016 the club took the decision to rename themselves Kensington Borough. Remember you can always contact me on;

Phil.MillsBTFC@gmail.com.

Rusty & Mills “Talk Balls” Rusty: Hi there Phil mate, how things? Bit of a tight one last Tuesday against a new -look Brimsdown, but fortunately we got the three points. Mills: Absolutely, could’ve been a bit more comfortable had the referee not disallowed one of our goals near the end though! Rusty: Funnily enough, he phoned me the next day to apologise. He said he would’ve felt awful had it cost us some points, but there was no harm done. What do you think will happen tonight, they gave us a tough test when we visited them earlier in the season? Mills: Yeah could be exciting especially with them coming from a well-known borough such as Kensington. I actually think it’s a Royal Borough you know! Do you think they might have any Royalty following them? Rusty: I think you might be a little off the mark there Millsy! Mills: Why’s that? - I was hoping that a member of royalty might be visiting Roker Park – one of the Princes maybe? I was going to make sure we had our best biscuits and china in the boardroom! Rusty: Well I don’t think so, they actually play at Spratleys Meadow – home of Amersham Town FC. Mills: What, so you mean there won’t be any Royalty coming along then? Rusty: No I don’t think so mate. Mills: Well that’s a bit misleading - I just think teams should be named after where they come from – like us Baldock Town come from – well Baldock! Rusty: Yeah would be easier, but what would your home team West Ham now be called then – Stratford Strollers? ;-p Mills: Ok mate, point taken!


More Reds History 5 Years ago… On the 11th February, the Reds were at home to Standon & Puckeridge. Coming into the game the Reds were at the top of the table with 56 points from 21 games, with their nearest rivals 6 points behind having played the same number of games. The Reds went on to cement their position at the top of the table with a 5-1 victory thanks to a Ryan Aldrin brace and goals from Louis Taylor, Kane Dougherty and Derek Newton. With Met Police not playing that weekend, Baldock increased their lead at the top to 9 points.

20 Years ago… The Reds were still struggling in the Southern League Premier Division, though the previous Saturday (the 8th) saw them gain a vital three points against Hastings Town in front of 303 people at Norton Road. Baldock ran out 2-0 winners with goals from Mike Bignall and John Rattle. On Tuesday 11th February 1997, Baldock entertained Nuneaton Borough in front of a crowd of 184. The Reds went down 1-2 with the Baldock goal coming from player/manager Brian Stein.
