Like us, Barking conceded a third goal on Saturday in added time at the end of their game at Marlow. Unlike us, who drew, it made their defeat look harsher than they would have liked.
They will be looking to improve on that this Tuesday, though Ware will also feel an improvement is necessary having dropped two points so late on against Staines.
Our first meeting was over a hundred years ago when we won a friendly 5-1 against a side from Barking. It's interesting to note that in the eight meetings since then (all after 1977) we have scored just four goals. Most recently we lost twice against them in the 2017/8 Bostik North Division, 1-0 on each occasion. So there's something to make up for on Tuesday night.
The programme for this game (£1.50 on the gate) includes the fixtures, results and tables for all our age teams from last season; a history of the visitors; Traveller's Tales; and Aiden's Astroturf series. This time Aiden looks at the use of VAR and how it makes it easier to give decisions on rules that perhaps shouldn't be there in the first place.
Don't forget that the club shop will be open before the match and at half time. Jan will be there to help with your purchases.
