It pains me to see them struggling so badly. Lost 4-0 at home to Luton last night.

I miss their sanctimony in the same way that I miss Kingston's... but that's what happens when you're more successful, I guess...

I was gonna say it pains me to see Luton winning 4-0, but then I realised i'd forgotten all about Luton.

Why not make a suggestion for the Newport result, it will take your mind off things.

Funny thing is we seem to be making friends since we joined the league ranks - possible exception being Bradford - but most of our animosity still has it's origins in non-league times.

I never liked Woking as I felt they looked down on us and it always invariably rained when we played at their gaff and we got to stand in the only uncovered part of the ground... and then there was THAT match which culminated in Frankie appearing before a magistrate who also happened to be an official at their club...

..a few years later, when the Brothers Chasbo were here, I got to meet him and he & they surprisingly turned out to be a very supportive bunch indeed.. he passed away a few years back, as did the equally likeable & supportive Aldershot Chairman.. and in ways I'm glad they are both not around to see what has sadly become of their respective clubs.

Good point with Aldershot who have fallen from grace in recent years. I could be wrong but I don't think Woking have ever played above the level they are currently at, nor have they ever really been a big club.

I always thought of them as a well-run regular "top-half of the Conference" club... one of those names you looked out for to have a decent FA Cup run - with the likes of Yeovil, Sutton, Bishop Auckland, Kidderminster, Stafford, Rushden & Diamonds... and of course... Wimbledon..!

Bishop Auckland....the last time they got to the second round was, I believe, 1982....and I was 14 and watching them lose to Carlisle in snowy Workington. Those were the days.....but I take your point about the others you mention.

I hated Blyth Spartans. They were Bishop's chief rivals during my childhood, and if you look at the tables for the Dryboroughs Northern League during the late seventies and early eighties invariably finished top with Bishop a point or two behind. But you're right. They were better at the FA Cup too (and I did have a sneaking admiration for that, but don't you ever tell them I said so) Mad

I saw a great Bishop Auckland side beat Crystal Palace 4-2 in December 1954 at Selhurst Park in the 2nd Round of the FA Cup.

The legendary Bob Hardisty played. He has a street named after him in Bishop Auckland.

They were knocked out by York City in the 4th Round.

Bob was a lovely chap. I met him as a teenager when they re-enacted a famous FA Amateur Cup Final v Crook Town. All these erm, late middle aged chaps in shorts that were too big for them, but Bob still had magnificent control and an incredible presence even though he must have been well into his 50's.

I met him again a few years later, in Bishop Auckland general, just before he died. A lovely, lovely chap, and you can't help but think of what kind of a career he would have had if he'd been born in the 1990s rather than the 1920s.

Just a shame that the street in Bishop Auckland they named after him has none of the style and grace he exhibited.
