Home to Guillem

Saturday 24 September 2016, Biggleswade United 3 Woodbridge Town 0 - FA Vase, 2nd Qualifying Round, Second Meadow

An easy win for the home team in this Vase match - but there is something going on at Second Meadow - neat little ground, big kids academy and small if slightly dilapidated club house - but it is this clubhouse you get a clue that this is not just your usual non-league club.

On the wall are over 72 framed pictures, large colour pictures and in each one the person is holding up a Biggleswade United shirt - but these are not just 72 strangers, these are football royalty, from Messi to Maradona, Zola to Cappello. How come there are on the wall at this small club house? the answer is in who is Director of Football here - a certain Guillam Balague of Sky TV/Spanish football fame - he has used his contcats well to get the pictures. But on the pitch he has also got the club a Spanish manager and this week they had journalists from a French newspaper at the club looking at their Spanish style football academy - as I said at the start, not your usual non-league club.
