Guildford City host Shortwood United at the Spectrum on Saturday afternoon at 1500hrs.
The visit to Shortwood United back in November was memorable if not necessarily for footballing reasons, the journey there in minibuses was interesting, in that it reminded me of the scenes at the end of the original Italian Job. “Hang on a minute lads. I’ve got a great idea……. ”
City ended up on receiving end of a 4 – 0 beating, but at half time were still well in the game with the home team only 1 – 0 up and this was the team that had a great money-raising cup run, beating Aldershot Town & eventually losing against Port Vale.
Reading the match report also reinforces the sense of frustration with match officials this season, so many decisions going the way of the opposition, Shortwood United scoring from an off-side position, hand-ball & no penalty given, etc.
Anyway hopefully City & the Sweeney will be up for the match this weekend.
