A gr-eight for AFC Totton and a great day for the town of Totton.
Sunday, 13th Nov 2011 10:53
AFC Totton have made all of the headlines in their 1st round FA Cup debut. Totton beat Bradford Park Avenue 8-1 in front of the clubs record attendance of 2315.
This was the biggest score by a non league club in the FA Cup since 1946!
The Stags were sensational, playing the kind of pass and move football that would meet the approval of Saints boss Nigel Adkins. Tottons wide men Jonathon Davies and Mike Gosney were terrific to watch.
Tottons goals came from Jonathon Davies (2), Mike Gosney (2) Michael Charles and substitute Stefan Brown (3)
Stefan Browns hat trick was the quickest EVER hat trick by a substitute in the FA Cup. What an honour for him and for AFC Totton.
Bradford were reduced to 10 men in the 1st half at 1-0 and to 9 men with the score at 5-1.
Totton were that good on the day though they would have still beaten Bradford by three clear goals at least in my opinion.
If you want to see who Totton get in the 2nd round the draw is live on ITV 1 at 2.40 this afternnon.
Well done Totton!

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
