It's 100 up for Lambs v Glassboys

Thursday Mar 12, 2020


 Tamworth welcome Stourbridge to the CR MOT Centre Community Stadium.


 It is another crucial game as Tamworth look to strengthen their claims for the league title. Despite dropping to second place on goal difference following Peterborough Sports 2 - 0 victory at Hitchin on Monday evening, Tamworth do have 3 games in hand. The games are now building up and the pressure will be on the squad to perform in games that will come quick and fast. Andrew, Gary and Tom have moved to strengthen the squad so that there is strength in depth for the end of season run in. This Saturday will be special for one of the new boys as Tom Tonks, who signed earlier this week, arrives from our visitors Stourbridge and was a very popular player for the Glassboys. Ken Feyi will also be available for selection and Joel Carta has had his loan extended until the end of the season. A player returning to the Lamb is Kristian Geen who enjoyed a successful spell for Tamworth last season before signing for Stourbridge in the close season. In addition the Glassboys feature former Tamworth players James Wren and Amthony Dwyer in their squad. 

 Tamworth start the game as the form team in the league while our visitors will be playing their second game under the stewardship of new Manager, Mark Yates. The former Cheltenham boss took charge of his first game at Rushall Olympic last Saturday and saw his team go down 2 - 0. For the Glassboys this is an important game for them in the quest to claim one of the play off places. They currently sit in 6th place, one place out of the play off zone, level on points with Rushall, but do have a game in hand. Their form over the past 6 games is won 2 and lost 4, scoring 5 and conceding 9.
 Games between Tamworth and Stourbridge have always been keenly fought encounters. On Saturday the teams mark their 100th competitive fixture, with the first game between the clubs played on 18th November 1939 at the Lamb in the Birmingham Combination, which Tamworth won 7 - 1. The complete record in all competitions is P99 W49 D20 L30. The highest attendance between the two teams was recorded on 2 Oct 1967 when 1990 turned up at the Lamb to see Tamworth win 3 - 0.
