The weekend’s visitors – Colchester Utd – a look at the U’s.26-02-2021

Coming Tuesday – Oldham Athletic (again!)10-02-2021

Oldham’s start to this season has been odd. Rather similar to Rovers, Oldham are better on the road than they are at home with 6 away wins, 3 draws and 3 losses from their 12 away fixtures. It has been home defeats in their 14 home games that have kept Oldham firmly in the middle Read More…

Carlisle-Badge

The low-down on Carlisle Utd.16-12-2020

Carlisle had a disappointing 18th place finish in League 2 in the Covid affected 2019/20 season. This led to a new manager (Chris Beech), a raft of new player signings and a new playing system. Early signs weren’t good, as Carlisle lost their first 3 games. Since then, the club have found their feet and Read More…

We welcome Cambridge United to The innocent New Lawn for this clash of 3rd place against 7th in League 2. The U’s sit 4 points behind Rovers with a game in hand.

Because it’s Saturday11-11-2020

FGR supporters will almost certainly enjoy this book in their Christmas stockings!! The publishers say “Because it’s Saturday is a compelling portrait of life in the professional grass roots of football, far from the glitz and glamour of Premier League superstars.
