We have been drawn against Dorchester in the Buildbase FA Trophy first-round qualifying.  Steve gave me his thoughts on the game. “Obviously pleased to be at home but slightly disappointed it’s against a team in the same league as ourselves which is the highest division at this stage of the competition.

Hendon FC 0 Salisbury FC 3 BetVictor Southern Premier League South Saturday, 12 October 2019 By Alec Hayter I don’t much care for the sterile type of football encouraged by plastic surfaces, but today the benefits were that the match went ahead in poor weather conditions, and that in spite of the surface, not because…
