Management preview

Manager Bren Kelly’s preview of the game can be read here.


  • Prior to the 2019/20 league being expunged, Stratford Town were sitting 18th, with 28 points from 33 games (Sporting were fourth, 57 from 32).
  • Their away form in the 2019/20 league was P17 W2 D2 L13. Those wins were both in 2020 – Redditch United (0-2, 14/01) and Biggleswade Town (0-1, 01/02). They never played us away during that campaign.
  • In the Emirates FA Cup last season, Stratford Town got to the Second Qualifying Round (one round further than this match). They lost 4-1 away to Halesowen Town, having beaten Boldmere St Michaels, 6-1 at home, in the round previous.
  • A new-look Stratford Town this season started their league campaign with a 2-1 win over Kings Langley, in which they came back to win, from a goal behind.

Lets do what we can to make a big impact and cheers the Rouslers on, in a season like no other… make sure you get YOUR ticket between 11am and 2pm today, so YOU can help to give Sporting as much support as possible.
