Basingstoke T – Sat 27 Feb -KO 3.00pm
We welcome Basingstoke Town to the Freebets.co.uk Stadium this Saturday for our latest Vanarama National League South fixture kick-off 3.00pm.
Our visitors are presently sitting in one of the relegation places having gained 25 points from their 30 games played (W 6, D 7, L 17, scoring 29 and conceding 51). Last Saturday they notched their 6th win of the season when they beat Maidenhead United td at home 2-1.
The Stones management team and squad will be looking to build on the excellent team performance last Saturday in North Somerset where they overcame Weston-super-Mare 2-1 in pretty horrible conditions. At the time of writing no squad news was available, North, Hamblin & Smith are still on the road to recovery and Jonny Wright will be available as his one match suspension for the 2 yellow cards against Oxford City starts on Monday 29 Feb.
Get behind the lads from the off and make plenty of noise for the 90+ minutes as we go in search of another 3 points on Saturday.
Please note, parking in the main car park is now limited to players, officials, staff and club guests on match days, please therefore park in the side streets near to the ground or use one of the pay & display car parks which are within 10–12 minutes walk of the stadium (see map HERE for assistance). Please be aware the Local Hillingdon Traffic Enforcement Department will be out and about and if you happen to park your vehicle inappropriately in the one of the side streets you are likely to get a ticket. You have been warned!

The @RollinKitchen will be turning out hot food & drinks from 13:30 and the tea bar in the ground will be providing hot & cold drinks and nibbles as usual.
