Stones on the Road – Monday 17th Nov

Stones travel to the Melbourne Stadium  home of Chelmsford City on Monday night (17th Nov) for their 2nd consecutive away Vanarama Conference South fixture kick-off 19:45. Our hosts are sitting in 9th place in the league having won 6, drawn 3 and lost 5 before the trip to Whitehawk on Sat 15th Nov. The  management & players will be looking to put points on the board so get along to get behind the ‘team’ on Monday night.
