2011/12: The season in pictures

From the appointment of Marcus Law, the joys of an FA Cup run, the club’s heritage evening and even The Lamb hosting a Women’s FA Cup Semi-Final, this season has certainly been eventful for Tamworth FC. To celebrate, here a selection of images from the previous 9 months… Advertisements

Law wields the proverbial axe

Possibly unsurprising for most, next season will bring almost wholesale changes to the Tamworth squad, with only six players, along with already contracted Richard Tait, Scott Barrow, Duane Courtney and JP Marna, offered contracts for the next campaign.

Coming down from League Two…

As the make-up of the Blue Square Bet Premier for the 2012/13 season begins to take shape, we take a look at the teams joining (and in some cases rejoining) the league through both relegation from the Football League and promotion from the Blue Square Bet North and South divisions. With the North and South … Continue reading

2011/12: The season in numbers

One for the statisticians amongst you, we bring you a (not so) definitive look at the 2011/12 season in the form of numbers and what they represent…

Lambs Lowdown: Tamworth v Cambridge United

For Tamworth FC, it’s something of a rarity for an end of season game to have nothing riding on it. Cast your mind back just 12 months when we all ‘packed’ inside The Lamb for our game against Forest Green Rovers not knowing which league we would be playing in the following season.

New home shirt unveiled…

Last month we brought you details of Tamworth’s new away kit for the next two seasons, well now we can bring you this, the brand new home shirt… The shirt is of an identical design to that of the away kit although obviously red in colour, with local firm Solus Coaches replacing The Snowdome as … Continue reading

Match Preview – Cambridge United

In a season where the headlines have been dominated by the cash flow of Fleetwood Town and the circus which has become Kettering Town, one of the sides that have slipped under the radar with a somewhat low-key campaign are Cambridge United. In fact, I only recall hearing of them twice since August – first, … Continue reading

Why we should keep faith in the Law

As this season draws to a close on the back of what has been a somewhat horrendous run of results, the once revered Marcus Law has had his ability and methods questioned of late, but is it deserved? His arrival last summer brought much needed anticipation and served as a perfect tonic as supporters finally began … Continue reading

Grounds for improvement? Part 1: Lincoln City

Having finally got round to updating my ‘grounds visited’ list on the ‘Football Ground Map’ website this afternoon, thus now reaching 93 grounds, it got me thinking back to some of the more less desirable grounds I’d visited over the years and why I dislike them and as a result I’ve decided to share my … Continue reading

Lambs Lowdown: Stockport County v Tamworth

I think it’s fair to say that for most supporters the end of the season couldn’t come soon enough as the club’s dour run of form continues to gather momentum. Despite this, our 2-2 draw against Southport last weekend was enough to secure Blue Square Premier football for another season with three games to spare, … Continue reading
