  • Grass Roots Talk

    Good Evening and welcome to The Grassroots Stadium for this Spartan

    South Midland Premier Division game.

    Today we welcome the players, officials and supporters of Hertford Town

    to Tring, and we hope you enjoy your short stay with us.

    We also give a warm welcome to our match officials- Referee- Mr

    M.Chisholm and his assistants-Mr R.Pearson & Mr M.Ball

    Tonights match is sponsored by our Catering Team and we would like to

    thank them for their continued generous support.

    We met tonight's opposition back in August at Hertingfordbury Park in The

    Herts Charity Shield in which was our first game of the season

    We were beaten that evening by 3 goals to 2 and our guests looked a good

    side. This has been the case and at present they are 4 points behind us with

    2 games in hand. They had a good 2-0 win and Colney last Saturday.

    We also had a good win at Biggleswade Utd. An early goal was cancelled out

    by Taylor Collins before Kieron Turner scored the winner late on

    The Reserves were unfortunate to go out of the Challenge Cup to the same

    opposition drawing 1-1 in the second leg after losing the first game 2-1. The

    second half performance from our younger merited something from the

    game side but they were unable to get the goals they deserved.

    The youth team showed their improvement winning 2-0 at Chesham during

    the previous week. This should have given the boys a lift and several of

    them are now performing well in our adult sides.

    The A Team had a convincing 7-0 win in the WH Charity Cup. to a very good

    Leverstock Green side which had beaten them 8-1 only a couple of weeks


    Finally enjoy the game and give your support to all involved

  • History of Tring Athletic: Formed in March 1958 by a group of local men who contributed app. 2,000 towards the cost of the land, fencing,

    changing rooms etc .Players, Committee members and friends carried out the work while the team played on another

    pitch. Originally formed for youngsters under the age of 21, the team won many trophies in the West Herts. Div. 3

    including the Div. 1 title 3 times in 5 years, often playing against adult sides.

    The 70s/80s The Club went through a lean time and it was decided to scrap the upper age limit. Many former players returned which

    resulted in another successful period in the early 1970s.

    Many fine players turned out for the Club and went on to play for professional/senior clubs. In the mid-seventies the

    Club nearly folded and the ground was sold to the Council. The reserves were disbanded and the First team dropped

    down through the leagues. It was decided to turn to youth again. This formula enabled the Club to work back through

    the leagues and by 1986 we were competing in the Premier Div. and the reserves were resurrected. South Midlands-The 90s. In 1988 the Club joined The South Midlands and as a result gained Senior status with The Herts. FA

    In 1989 we entered in a 3 year ground sharing agreement with Tring Town.

    In 1992 the first team moved back to Miswell Lane, where the Reserves had continued to play. The side established

    itself in The South Midlands and gained promotion to the newly formed Senior Div.

    in 1993. In 1994/5 season, the First Team reached the final of the Senior Div. Cup While the Reserves were finalists in

    the Apsley Junior Cup for the second year running.

    In 1996/7 after leading the Div. for the whole season, some poor results at the end found us finishing 3rd. We also

    reached the semi- final of the Herts. Charity Shield and won the St. Marys Cup beating 5 Senior sides including

    Isthmian League Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted Town In 1997/8 after winning the last 14 games we lost out on

    the Title on goal difference of 2. The Reserves won their league by 10 points winning every home game.

    The following year we won the South Midlands Senior Div. Cup and also The St. Marys Cup for the second time,

    defeating neighbours Tring Town in the semi-final in front of a crowd of 350, mostly Athletic supporters. In the league

    after suffering just one defeat in 28 games, we finished 3rd.

    The 1999/2000 season proved to be one to remember. 50k was spent on new changing rooms and extending the

    Clubhouse and over 1000 people turned up to watch a Watford X1 refereed by Graham Barber and Graham Poll.. We

    also formed a third team a Vets side and a Ladies team. The season turned out to be our most successful. Not only

    winning the Senior Div. by 11 points, we also reached 5 finals. Winning The Herts. Charity Shield, Herts. Senior

    Centenary Trophy and the Cherry Red Books Tr
