Morning All

After last night’s game I think we can all take a breath of fresh air now as we were under pressure for long periods of the game having taken an early lead through Reece Grego-Cox. That came after some excellent work from Bez Lubala beating a couple of defenders.  A point each was probably a fair outcome and it took some determination by the team to get back into the match when going 2-1 down and being literally hammered by the visitors. Glenn Morris, who had just signed a contract extension was at his best with some stunning saves that kept the Red Devils into the game.  Our equaliser came from the penalty spot by Ollie Palmer and was created again by Grego-Cox when darting into the box on a mazy run, only to be brought down by Callum McFadzean. For the final minutes of the game Crawley found some of the form that they had shown in previous matches and finished the stronger of the two side but just couldn’t get the winner which would have been extremely hard on the opposition.

As you know Paul Hayward has extended the away travel offer of the £10.00 fare for the October matches, we are now taking bookings for all these matches, it’s not surprising that we are already getting good numbers on each of these coaches – see details below.

On Saturday we travel to Northampton, as of now we only have 11 seats remaining on the coaches, so if you want to travel please let us know – remember that we leave at 9.30am from the stadium – you need to be there for 9.15am. – I will be by my car taking the outstanding money if you haven’t already paid for your seat. The coaches will pull out of the Stadium at 9.30am. We don’t wait for late comers unless they have made contact saying that you are on your way.

We have many new travellers coming for the first time on Saturday – please remember that Alcohol and Smoking/Vaping is not allowed on any of our coaches. You are not booked on any specific coach of the two but please travel back on the same coach and in the same seats. Patrick will look after one and me the other. The buffet has been confirmed so we are all set for another, hopefully great away day.

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE - we are getting positive responses about an overnighter to this match.

Just as a heads up – we are considering doing the midweek Plymouth Argyle match as an overnight trip – the game is due to be played on Tuesday 28th January 2020 with a 7.45pm kick off – if you are interested then please let us know – we need to find either a hotel or a couple of guest houses for the Tuesday evening – we will aim to keep the costs to a minimum as we do for all the overnight games. We will start compiling a list of those interested – if we did there wouldn’t be a “there and back” in the day transport provided.

UP, UP and AWAY our next away games.                 

Northampton Town – Saturday 21st September in the League with a 3.00pm kick off – The second coach is now getting good numbers on we now have 11 seats available. We depart from the stadium at 9.30am and the cost is £10.00 for all supporters. We are stopping at the MK Dons Sports Bar in Newport Pagnell and the buffet is included in the fare.

Forest Green Rovers – Saturday 5th October – kick off 3.00pm.

Coach will depart from the stadium at 9.30am and we will have a buffet at the Majors Retreat at Tormanton before travelling to the New Lawn in Nailsworth. Cost for this trip is £10.00 which included the buffet.

Bradford City - Saturday 19th October - kick off 3.00pm

Coach will depart from the stadium at 7.30am and we will have a buffet at the Dusty Miller at Barlborough, near Sheffield before travelling to the game. Again, cost for this trip is £10.00 which included the buffet.

Newport County - Tuesday 22nd October - kick off 7.45pm

Coach will depart from the stadium at 2.00pm. Again, cost for this trip is £10.00. If time allows we will stop at the Majors Retreat for a drink but there will be no buffet organised as if we do hit bad traffic we may have to go straight to Newport.

My Observer Column this week. (Well half a page!!!!)

With Owner Ziya Eren in attendance Crawley extended their unbeaten run to 5 league matches, it’s been a long time for this sort of run, and gaining 10 points out of the last 12 – which is promotion winning form – I’m not getting carried away with that because it is really early days in the league season – another 38 games to go.

The game against Mansfield was a close affair with each team creating chances, however to win games you have to put the ball in the net – doesn’t matter how well you play, that is the only statistic counts – and Bez Lubada is having the knack to be in the right place at the right time – that 7 goals scored this season already and if the nation press is to be believed, Premier and Championship clubs are already running the rule over the striker.

One player doesn’t make a team, this squad are getting better and better as the matches go on – even bringing other players into the starting line-up is having little effect on how they are setting themselves up and taking the game to the opponents – it’s both at home and away, yes, there have been scary moments in matches and Glenn Morris had had to be at his brilliant best – but we are coming away with something from the games.

We now have some more difficult matches coming up starting with Plymouth on Tuesday evening, they will bring a large support even for this midweek game, they haven’t had the best of starts losing 1 – 0 to Port Vale at the weekend.

Then at Northampton next Saturday, the Red Devils will be followed by an ever increasing away support – two full coaches will pull away from the Stadium on Saturday morning and with the countless numbers making their own way it’s possible that again we will see over 200 at the game, cheering them on to another 3 points.

After Northampton away the last in September, the Red Devils have some difficult away matches in October, at Forest Green, Bradford City and Newport County – all above us in the current league table – but I personally this that this team can bring home points from each of these game to push us further up the league.

We have also the Stoke City cup match on the horizon, on Tuesday week, the tickets are selling well and there is another chance for a full house, plus with Stoke City playing Notts Forest on the Friday after our cup match – then their manager has a selection problem of who he picks as the Forest game will be his priority – could be another upset on the cards.
