General Discussion / Re: Costs at Basingstoke

I'm one cost short of a full set.
If you bought a cup of tea at the game, could you let me know how much it was, please?
Thanks.

Every player was outstanding yesterday, but my Stand outs were Burbidge and Young. Absolutely heartbreaking to lose like that! And I must add Basingstoke is the biggest Dump I've ever been to and the worst stewards and most disrespectful people I've ever came across.  Hope we never have to go there again.

Great work by student Max Emes to produce our match report on Saturday evening.
This was Max's second report of the week, having also reported on the FA Cup replay at Dorchester.
Thanks, Max

Report from the Non League Paper by Nick Wilson [ these reports are usually sent in by the home team]:-

The heading was "Dragons stage a fantastic comeback"

"A physical battle led to a stunning ending at the Camrose as Basingstoke mounted a miraculous , if slightly fortunate, comeback against Wimborne despite being a man down.
The first half largely went the visitors way. Jack Lovell, freed by a quick one-two, to finish a clinical counter attack inside four minutes.
The hosts snatched an equaliser against the run of play just before the break. Sam Smart turned and set Zidan Akers free to drill home.
Dean Stow was sent off 20 minutes from time for tugging back Connor Young as he burst through on goal and Wimborne eventually made the man advantage tell as Young's shot took a cruel deflection off Harry Philby to loop beyond Colin McAdden.
It looked like game over but 2 minutes into stoppage time, the ten men of Basingstoke were awarded a penalty from a corner, Billy Maybury the man penalised.
Substitute Callum Bunting stepped up, his first effort beaten back to him by Gerrard Benfield but he cooly swept the rebound in with his left foot to seemingly secure a point.
However the home team weren't done though and Smart teed up Dan Collier to fire home from 20 yards into the bottom corner to steal a win"

I await with interest the full match report as to what went wrong on Saturday and how the Magpies, leading 2-1 on 90 minutes,against 10 men, managed to lose 3-2!!. I don't doubt that all the players gave 100% effort as usual but we now share the worst defensive record in the league, in terms of goals against, so some serious questions need to be addressed and a solution quickly found if we are to stem the flow of conceding goals and make any progress in this league. What do others think?
