Next up - Waltham Abbey
Saturday, 21st December at Wodson Park SG12 0UQ;
BetVictor Isthmian League Division 1 (South Central); kick off 3pm.

Admission - Adults £10, Concessions £5, under 14s free with a paying adult.

Googling the winter solstice tells me that Sunday is the shortest day of the year in the UK. I have news, it isn't in Ware. Sunrise on Saturday is 08.05 and sunset is 15:51. The two days either side have a minute's extra daylight making the 21st the shortest day of the year in our parts.

Either way this game represents a chance to lift the mid-winter gloom. A win for Ware would at the very least keep them on the heels of league leaders Hanwell Town whilst Waltham Abbey need the points to jump into the play off places.

All that football plus our famous Turkish kebabs cooked on the spot, drink in the club room, more food at the tea bar and maybe a late Christmas gift from the club shop.

What you won't get is manager Paul Halsey who is taking the chance of a break with his role taken on by assistant Michael Bardle. Leigh Rose is also unavailable but other than that we have a strong squad available with Albert Adu back at home for the first time since last season.

The Abbey team will also have a number of former Ware players returning to Wodson Park including goal keeper Charlie Crowley who played in our early season matches.

Don't forget the match day programme (£1.50 on the gate) which will have its usual range of articles including Aiden's Astroturf series. This week Aiden offers praise for Paul Halsey and talks of the need to keep generating support in the town to maintain the current success.
