Stratford Town

Having never previously played Stratford Town until last season, we encountered The Town on 3 occasions in 2015-16. 

Stratford started with a bang as they won 3-2 at Top Field on the opening day of the season. Stratford led 2-0 through Gregory and Angus but were pegged back by goals from Simon Martin and Josh Bickerstaff. Joe Halsall gave the lead back to the visitors who then hung on for the 3 points. The away fixture was a 1-1 draw with goals from Fagan and Brett Donnelly. 

Hitchin did beat Stratford in the Red Insure Cup - a 2-2 draw (Kirkpatrick and Burns) meant penalties and The Canaries came out on top 4-2 in the shootout. Both the 1-1 league draw and the cup game saw Stratford finish with ten men.

Stratford's first season at this level saw them finish 19th and six points clear of the drop zone.

Previously they had won promotion from the South & West Division in 2014-15 via a 3-2 play off win over Larkhall in front of a record crowd of 1054. This followed promotion from the Midland Alliance two seasons earlier, a league Stratford had been in since its inception in 1994-95.
