A successful day for Stamford! 2 wins and top of the League on goal difference from last year’s champions Oakham. Let’s see if we can stay there!
All results as follows:-
Stamford 3 Kimberley 0 (Monaghan, Curry, Smith)
Oakham 2 Bramcote 0
Alfreton 3 Boston 0
Stamford 3 Bramcote 2 (Monaghan 2, Curry)
Boston 1 Oakham 2
Kimberley 1 Alfreton 0
In terms of our matches 0-0 at half time vs Kimberley and game frenetic. You could tell players hadn’t played competitively for a long time. We settled down second half and played some good football running out comfortable 3-0 winners with goals from Monaghan, Curry and Smith.

The current league table after Matchday 1 is good reading for the Strollers.
