Last-minute goal breaks cup curse

St Ives Town 0-1 Stratford Town  FA Trophy Preliminary Round A LAST-minute goal from ace marksman Richard Gregory broke the cup curse hanging over Town manager Carl Adams on Saturday. Incredibly, Adams, who has propelled Town to the top of the Southern League Division 1 South and West just two years after promotion, hadn’t won a game in any cup competition since his arrival at the club in June 2012. Just as a forgettable game was heading towards a replay, Town produced the touch of class needed to hit St Ives with the knockout blow.


Southam-pton? Saints knock eight past Studley

Southam United 8-0 Studley SOUTHAMPTON may have stunned the football world by smashing Sunderland 8-0 in the Premier League on Saturday, but on the same day, their near-namesakes in the Stratford-on-Avon District also put eight past a team beginning with S. Tunde Ajibade grabbed a hat-trick to help Southam United — also nicknamed the Saints — bounce back from their midweek defeat at Cadbury Athletic and beat neighbours Studley 8-0 in the Les James Midland Football League Challenge Cup.


Stratford undone in the second half

Stratford 8-29 Stoke-on-Trent STRATFORD were undone in the second half against a quick Stoke-on-Trent team at Pearcecroft today. Camped on the Stoke line for the opening 20 minutes, Stratford were duly rewarded for their effort when Simon Brain bundled over to open the scoring. All looked well for the Black and Whites, but a combination of missed tackles and Stoke’s pacey backs saw the visitors level things up just before half-time at 5-5.

Players impress with new director

STRATFORD’S Phoenix Players always seem to pull a little gem out of the bag at some stage during its season of productions. This year’s treasure was its recent production of Take Away The Lady, by Lancashire playwright Jimmie Chinn. The Players always boast they are an amateur company, but performances often hint of more talent and stage credit. And this production was such. Director Rebecca Alun-Jones had cherry-picked her cast well, and even took advantage of the new ArtsHouse auditorium, setting the production in a flat thrust.


Trinity Players tell their own Great War story

STRATFORD’S Trinity Players will be commemorating the Great War with its forthcoming production at the end of this month — a new play by the town’s Steve Newman, called October 1914. The siege of Antwerp in October 1914 — before the trenches were dug — is an almost forgotten episode of the First World War, where communities were either destroyed or changed forever.

BOOK REVIEW: Stratford-upon-Avon’s history charted from the Middle Ages to modern times

STRATFORD-UPON-AVON has a lot to thank Nick Fogg for. Although he was born and bred in the town, he hasn’t lived here for a very long time. But he clings to it with a passion that knows no bounds. His love of Stratford and all that goes with it – including a poet and playwright by the name of William Shakespeare – is such that he’s produced several books on the town (and even a scholarly book on the playwright). His latest homage to this small settlement in Warwickshire is Stratford-upon-Avon – The Biography, published by Amberley Publishing at £16:99.


Debut show for young director

THE Phoenix Players’ next production, Take Away the Lady by Jimmie Chinn, is the directorial debut of enthusiastic young director, Rebecca Alun-Jones. Take Away the Lady runs at Stratford ArtsHouse from Thursday, 25th September until Saturday, 27th September at 7.30pm.
