Lambs Highs and Lows of curtailed season.

Sunday May 31, 2020

 Despite the season being cut short by 12 games, there have been the usual ups and downs this season for Tamworth fans.

 As Tamworth were sitting pretty at the top of the 2019/20 table when games were stopped there were obviously more highs than lows this season, but it is always a roller coaster for Lambs fans! While there are no games and everyone waits to see when football at our level resumes, it is still possible to get that ‘highs and lows’ excitement with sites like Below is a selection of four highs and four lows that Lambs fans enjoyed and endured over the last ten months.


 Sat 7th September 2019 - Tamworth v Nuneaton (FA Cup) 

 The Lambs were drawn against our fiercest rivals in the first round qualifying of the FA Cup and Nuneaton boasted several ex Lambs players in their ranks. Bragging rights, FA Cup progression and a tidy financial bonus were all at stake and the Tamworth players did not let the fans and Club down. In a truly dominant display in front of over 1000 fans, The Lambs were 2-0 up at the half and 3-0 up after 53 minutes and went on to win 3-1.


 Tues 8th October – Hereford v Tamworth (FA Cup)

 In the 3rd Qualifying round of the FA Cup Tamworth were drawn against high-flyers Hereford from the division above. After a tense 0-0 draw in front of 1206 fans at the Lamb, the replay was a classic ‘I was there’ moment for Lambs fans. With the teams unable to be separated in both normal and extra time, penalties were required to decide the victor. Tamworth keeper, Singh, saved the hosts first shot and then watched as the next two sailed over the bar, giving the Lambs a 2-0 head start after three shots each. Hereford finally scored their 4th shot but Fry also netted to send Tamworth through and the travelling fans into ecstasy.

 Wednesday 1st January – Hednesford v Tamworth (League)

 The New Year was brought in with a trip to our big rivals, Hednesford. A comprehensive performance, along with a sending off for the hosts, saw the Lambs brush aside the Hednesford team 3-0 to notch the first win in three games. It was sweet revenge for the defeat earlier in the season.


 Tues 28th January – Tamworth v Royston. (League)

 Tamworth were in the midst of a sticky patch and form had not been great since mid December and had lost three straight league games in a row for the first time under new management. The team had been deposed at the top of the league and were looking to put things right at home against a flying Royston team who were on a 13 game winning streak. In a fantastic football match where both teams played great football, The Lambs scored a goal in each half to end their top of the table rivals run and put themselves back on track.


 Monday 26th August – Tamworth v Hednesford (League)

 On a boiling hot Bank Holiday Monday, both teams looked jaded from their efforts 48 hours earlier. It was a dull game with few chances for both teams, with defences on top and very little inventive play. Only a very dubious penalty for the visitors ended up separating the teams, sending the Lambs to a 1-0 home defeat in front of nearly 900 supporters. It was one of those games where neither team looked like scoring if the game had gone on all day, but the Tamworth fans left disappointed.

 Tuesday 10th December – Tamworth v Needham Market. (League) 

 Tamworth went into this midweek fixture on a four game winning streak and looking to cement their spot at the top of the table. A disappointing performance only saw the Lambs start to play once 2-0 down and they could not retrieve the situation and lost 2-1 in the end.

 Saturday 18th January – Tamworth v Leiston (League)

 A home game against a struggling Leiston team should have been the tonic to bounce back from defeat at promotion chasing Bromsgrove the week before. However, in a mirror image of the Needham game, Tamworth were poor throughout and only stepped it up when 2-0 down and could not claw their way back, ending up losing 2-1.

 Thursday 26th March – League Ending Announcement.

 The Southern League announced that the season was finished, the league was null and void and there would be no promotion. This ended the Lambs fans hopes of promotion in the most cruel way having played over three quarters of the season and amassing the most points per game. All that effort for nothing.

 So as fans wait to find out when they can next come to the Lamb to watch their team play, they know no matter what happens next season there will be both highs and lows!
