Play off semi at Alvechurch

Post by KEITH » Sun May 05, 2019 12:46 pm

I see according to the Southern League website that Alvechurch beat Stourbridge 2-1 at Alvechurch. As Stourbridge finished above them should they have been at home or am I missing something or is it yet another Southern League website cock up?

I believe a cricket match was happening at Stourbridge on that day.

With all the shenanigans surrounding the investigation of an ineligible Stratford player, the playoff dates changed multiple times in the week leading up to the playoffs Keith, which is why they ended up being played yesterday instead of Wednesday. As Canadian says, Stourbridge had a cricket match yesterday, so the venue was changed to Alvechurch.

Ah ok. I've never been to Stourbridge so just looked it up on maps. I didn't know it's a throw back to Sheffield Utd & Northampton Town back in the day. Bloody annoying if you're a Stourbridge fan I'd guess having to give up home advantage through no fault of their own & then losing.
