Saturday 23 September – Wharfedale v Stourbridge – Match Preview

September 19th, 2017 Comments off
We welcome our old friends Stourbridge to the Avenue on Saturday. The team that was with us for so many years in National One. We carried on playing pre-season until we met again last year in National Two North. I wondered about the opening sentence and to justify it I turned to Riverball by Simon Ravens (still available in the club shop). “We (the two clubs) just seem to be doing what we are doing for the same reasons. Shared values.”

Stourbridge is a small club on the edge of a large conurbation with lots of bigger and wealthier clubs around. The last few miles on the way to the club is a glorious drive through some rolling Midlands countryside, albeit after battling down the M6 and through Wolverhampton.

It has always been a pleasure to visit them and they likewise cherish a trip with quite a few supporters coming for the weekend, up to the Avenue.

Last week a modest crowd (just under 300) of Luctonians made an epic noise. It was reminiscent of the film Zulu when the assembled mass of attackers were beating their shields. I am sure that the shed can be noisier without resorting to beating the advertising hoardings!

The match will kick off at 3.00pm.

The team details will follow shortly.
