On Saturday we face Didcot in the FA Cup, on paper a relatively easy tie but thankfully we don’t play on paper. The following Tuesday we meet the Old Enemy, Wimborne in the League Cup. Expect a full first team from both teams for that one( not).
Then the really interesting one. Finally a home game, and against the form team in the League. Yes I know we are top but Harrow have played a game less and sit only two points behind us. So even at this stage of the season, Harrow, on the 14th, is a real 6 pointer.

Harrow Borough proved a bit of a stumbling block last season. They can from 3-1 down at Tatnam, on wet Tuesday in January, to draw 3-3.The two goals coming in injury time. Then to add insult to injury time thumped as 4-0 on a cold February Saturday at their Earlsmead home. As for what the next three fixtures will actually be, could be different depending on this Saturday's FA Cup results. If either us or Wimborne's tie needs a reply then our League Cup tie gets postponed to make way for that. This will also mean the away match against Gosport Borough (scheduled for the Tuesday after Harrow) will be postponed to make way for the Wimborne League Cup tie. Even if both ourselves and Wimborne don't need a replay but Gosport do, then our trip to Privett Park will also get postponed to a later date. Why the SL couldn't have let us play the LC tie this week is beyond me. Or perhaps they like handicapping their sides with unecassery fixture backlogs every season. At least it gives all club secretaries something to do. Given that they really don't already have enough to do. Do they FA & League Cups count towards Josh Carmichael's ban?

The Gosport Borough away match has now been scheduled for Tuesday 24th September. Of course if either club is involved in an FA Cup 2nd Q replay or the original tie because of bad weather then this will get moved again.
