Stratford Town found that they were three players short for a recent away game when they went in their car to Market Rasen in Lincolnshire rather than Market Drayton in Shropshire. It is understood that there is going to be a whip round to buy them a sat nav for Christmas.
With a home game against Alvechurch the following Tuesday, the manager was confident that all the players would find their way to the Anne Hathaway Stadium. Unfortunately, four of them were involved in a car crash on the way to the ground. No one was seriously injured but some of them will be out of action for a fortnight.
