Massive Match Tomorrow!

1st and 2nd go head to head

It won't resolve anything at this stage but it will feel like a six pointer to both sides, as league leaders Sutton Common Rovers travel to 2nd placed Chertsey Town on Saturday in the top Premier Division match of the day.

Two very experienced managers are at the helm with Chertsey boss Dave Anderson needing little introduction in the football world, having previously managed AFC Wimbledon, St. Albans and other prominent clubs. Joining Chertsey towards the end of last season, his first achievement with the club was to save it from relegation when all looked doomed at one point and he has now assembled a fine side with only one league defeat all season and, of course, still going strong in the FA Vase, having reached the last eight.

SCR manager Darren Salmon is by contrast a one-club man and deserves great credit for the way in which he and others have gone about transforming SCR into the club it is today. On Tuesday when they won by a solitary goal against Southall, it was his 600th match in charge, no mean record.

There is a full programme on Saturday with all 20 Premier Division clubs in action, whilst arguably the Division One "match of the day" is Bedfont & Feltham at home to Tooting Bec. Visitors Tooting Bec have been on a long ubeaten run in the League in what is their first season at Step 6 whilst B & F, after winning their opening match of the season 11-0, have rarely faltered since.

Another match of note is Sheerwater's visit to Nottsborough in the Surrey Premier Cup quarter final, where kick-off is 2.00 p.m. due to Nottsborough having no lights. The match is taking place on a Saturday as Sheerwater did not have a scheduled league meeting. Some may not have heard much about Nottsborough but this will be a close affair. The venue for the game is Kingston University Sports Ground, Old Kingston road, Worcester Park, KT4 7QH

We conclude by looking back to the Surrey Senior Cup and Banstead Athletic's exciting win over AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday, to put out themselves into the quarter final. The match actually finished level but Banstead won the penalty shoot out by 6 goals to 5 and will now play at home to Woking in the next round on Tuesday 5 March

AFC Wimbledon wil not have played a full first team but it was still a feather in the cap for Banstead who are enjoying a fine season after returning to the Premier Division this campain.
