Season so far
It’s been a steady start to their Premier Division journey for Arlesey Town who currently sit in 15th place.
After starting the season with back-to-back defeats the Blues got their campaign up and running with a point at Frome Town before notching their first three points with an impressive 2-0 win over big-spending title hopefuls Brackley Town.
Since then Arlesey’s league form has been patchy winning just one more Premier Division game – a 2-0 win at Bedford – but while the Blues have struggled in the league, their FA Cup form has been impressive.
A late Dave Deeney goal gave Zema Abbey’s side a 2-1 win over Tilbury in the First Qualifying Round before the Blues caused the upset of the Second Qualifying Round with a 6-2 defeat of Conference South outfit Hampton & Richmond Borough.
The Blues were brought back down to earth on Tuesday evening, however, as they slipped to a 2-1 home defeat against Barwell.
Team v Barwell: Osborn; Deeney, Bufano, Frater, Mawer, S Sinclair, Allinson, D Sinclair, Mason; Dillon, Marsh.
