Keith Fletcher points the finger!

April 23rd, 2020 by Abbey Abbott

One of the great photos from the past that was on the clubhouse bar wall for many years.  Keith Fletcher, as was customary for him, telling the referee how to ref the game and what he done wrong!  We lost 0-3 at home to Hanwell Town that day 27th October 1984.  We were in the London Spartan League Premier Division. No wonder Keith had plenty to say!

I last saw Keith in Waltham Cross in the bank about 5 years ago, are you out there Keith, any memories?

Abbott’s stop for no-one..

April 19th, 2020 by Abbey Abbott

Sadly the Covid virus put paid the the 2019-20 but The Abbott's Chairman John Martin has moved fast in preparation for next year.  Around 240 tonnes of sand were delivered to our Capershotts ground in early April, in anticipation. Once again the top layer has been taken off the pitch and the ground aeriated and sand filled.  The chance to work on the pitch this early was too good an opportunity to miss after the FA declared that all football at our level was to be ruled null and void.  That won't stop us including all results and appearances in our official records books though.  The ground is pictured Sat 18th April 2020, a view not often seen in the past.

The Joy of Making a Website

April 2nd, 2020 by Abbey Abbott

After deciding that I finally wanted to get working on my website again I realised some 5 hours later that I had completely forgotten how to make a web site!  I have basically started from scratch.  It's a work in progress as they always are, so I hope you enjoy and maybe find something of interest.  I have decided to write this comment to remind me to keep going!  Have fun people..

 

The Start of a New Beginnning

April 2nd, 2020 by Abbey Abbott

It's April 2nd 2020, this was going to be our year.  Instead it has turned out to be everyone's year!  The world is in pandemic due to Covid 19 and the worlds population is basically in mass lock down.  Working, if possible, from home is the norm.  Could this be my chance to finally get this project off the ground and give it the time I feel it deserves after years of procrastination.  Let's give it a go.   Its going to be a long slog but I'll give it another shot.

Apologies if you click on a year and it says Under Research.  I wanted to get every season on board and work from there.  It's a huge project researching and scanning etc but we will get there. Thanks
