Saturday 11th February 2017 at the Cosy Stadium, St Neot’s.
St Neot’s Town 2 – 1 Basingstoke Town Goalscorers Hill & Fortnam-Tomlinson Deadfield
On a day when the travelling Basingstoke fans were wondering if the game would go ahead, confirmation by the St Neot’s club that with no snow in the area, therefore no planned pitch-inspection, fans made their way up by road via the A1 or other routes or transport to St Neot’s for the game.
The weather cold, but dry. The stadium built in 2008, sits within a new housing estate, just a few hundred yards the other side of St Neot’s train station. It is well put together stadium, with two small covered terraced ends, a small main stand, a decent but small main bar and a reasonably priced food bar. It also includes an electric scoreboard in one corner of the ground.
The Match Details;
Our 16th league defeat of the season and arguably the most frustrating one of the lot. Basingstoke Town threw away an early-goal lead at lowly St Neot’s Town to the extreme irritation of those who had made the long journey northbound – a host of bad decision making and no end product (where have we seen that before), in the opposition final third led directly to our downfall.
