The best way to keep up to date with Basford United Football Club


First Team at Sheffield, Community at Home

10 months ago By Neil McGowan

Saturday sees the First Team travel to Sheffield and Community play at home to AFC Dunkirk (both 3.0).

The First Team will be aiming to keep their unbeaten run going, being yet to taste defeat this season.

Martin Carruthers said:
“Sheffield are a good strong side, they will have been disappointed to lose 4-3 to Chasetown with a last minute goal in midweek and will no doubt be looking to bounce back against us.

“We haven’t had the best record at Sheffield in the past, but I prefer to look at the present, the team we have now has a different mentality than before. At this time last year we were struggling to win away, this season we have won all our away games.

“We go there full of confidence and want to keep the unbeaten run going.”

Liam Hearn misses the game as he completes his three match suspension.
Squad: Deeney, Grayson, Bartle, Roma, Wilson, F Smith, Carr, Reid, Fenton, Meikle, Hutchinson, Wells, Thornhill, Grantham, Bertram, R Duffy, Brown, Wakefield, Brown, Mancinelli, Gayle.

Ground Address: Coach & Horses Stadium, Sheffield Road, Dronfield S18 2GD.

Admission: Adults £8, Concessions (over 65) £4.

The ground is located on land to the rear of the Coach and Horses pub in the town of Dronfield just south of Sheffield and has seating for 250 and a terrace stand including disabled facilities and two refreshment outlets. A club shop is on site, stocking a full range of merchandise and the Coach and Horses pub serves a range of locally brewed Thornbridge Ales, and pre match food.

The ground is just over half a mile from Dronfield railway station, on the Nottingham to Sheffield line.

At Greenwich Avenue, Community entertain AFC Dunkirk.

Michael Leslie said:
“With last weekend’s game against Ruddington FC being cancelled, it feels like a lifetime ago since we last played a game of football. This is a shame as I thought in our last outing against Bilborough United in the League Cup, we had finally picked up some momentum and produced a top quality team performance.

“AFC Dunkirk come to Greenwich Avenue of the back of a 3-0 win against Underwood Villa last week, we are expecting them to be a young energetic side like ourselves who like to get the ball down and play football through the thirds.

“This is sure to be a fascinating game of football.”
