Next up Stamford AFC visit Greenwich Avenue Mon 7.45pm ko

1 year ago By Match reporter

Play off chasing Stamford AFC visit Basford Monday night in the latest Evo-Stik South fixture.

Spectators can expect a treat if this game is anything like last season when Basford won a high scoring cracking game 3-2 viewed by a then record crowd of 379 as the visitors came roaring back from a 3-0 deficit.

With no games locally on Monday United will hope spectators both local and National take the opportunity to view 16 game unbeaten Basford United and a very good Stamford AFC outfit who will expect to be challenging for either automatic promotion or the minimum a spot in the playoffs.
Both sides recorded great victories Saturday so will come into the game in good form.
United boss Martin Carruthers was delighted with Saturdays away victory & said:

“It was a great result and we really worked hard to get a win against
very capable opposition. We have now developed a winning mentality that
can carry us through difficult situations.

Stamford had a great win on Saturday and will be going all out to beat
us, We are expecting a very tough game."

Matt Thornhill is doubtful, having had to leave the field injured on

Basford squad: Deeney, Bartle, Grayson, Meikle, Nash, Roma,Thornhill,
Bell-Toxtle, Fenton, Wells, Hearn, Reid, Wakefield, Austin, R
Duffy, Harrison, Tabreham, Brown.
