Is this our first official meeting?
A question arose earlier this week - Have the Senior team played Mansfield Hosiery Mills before?
Well, obviously they've been to Carnarvon Street before in the Central Midlands Football League, but that was against our Reserve team, but until this season Teversal FC's first team have been playing at the higher level on the National Pyramid - in the Northern Counties East League and East Midlands Counties League.
The earliest I can find any record of Mansfield Hosiery Mills is in the Notts Senior League Second Division in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons, and Division One the following (2018/19) season, before moving over to the CMFL.
Their first two seasons were incomplete due to Covid, but last season they finished close to the bottom of the Supeme Division (14th out of 17) with just eight wins from their 32 games, which was better than our Reserves who propped up the final table.
They did the double over our Reserves in the league, but we did gain some revenge when we had a 7-1 win against them in the Notts Senior Trophy.
