Ah, the joke that never gets old.

This evening sees Lee Allinson take his troops to Ware's Wodson Park ground for pre-season friendly number four of the summer.

Led by Paul Halsey, brother of former Premier League referee Mark, Ware were in 3rd place in the Isthmian League South Central Division last season when the campaign was curtailed all too early and once again poised to make an attack on the promotion spots.

The two clubs have met three times previously competitively, firstly in 1957 in an Amateur Cup tie that finished 1-1 at Ware in front of a record attendance of 3,800 - Jimmy Quail scored for the Greens who won the replay comfortably 4-0. Quail was on target once again along with Tommy Lawrence, Ron Stanton and Miles Spector.

Then, in 1987 a Gary Keen goal was enough to defeat the Blues in the FA Cup.

Last pre-season a late own goal gave the Greens the spoils and a 2-1 win after Sam Corcoran had given Allinson's side a first half lead.

We believe admission for the game is £5 adults and £2.50 concessions, as always please read any COVID advice around the ground and ensure that all rules and regulations are adhered to.
