    Sorry, I could have worded that more clearly. They were already in the division when we arrived and consistently finished in the top half for 6 seasons before moving sideways as we moved upwards. They slipped under the radar a bit because they always seemed to be 7th-11th, except for the final season when they were 5th and we beat them in the play-offs.

    I seem to recall that whilst Leiston never had a sugar daddy type, they were quite organised on the corporate sponsorship side & had a number of local businesses putting in a good few grand each year which substantially boosted their playing budget. Set up in a way that everything wouldn’t collapse if one person pulled the plug. Happy to stand corrected if I misunderstood that...

    So that is Braintree and Eastbourne that have assumed FA Cup prize money this season and lost their managers when things went pear-shaped. I know the losers of each tie now get something but to assume any more than that is just folly.

    I know Leiston and the other two East Anglian clubs are out on a limb anyway, but having to trudge via "A" roads every other week to Birmingham and beyond must be a joyless experience.

    Any chance of any of the Adidas stuff the players and coaches have been wearing going on sale to the fans?

    Love those but if I could change one thing (also applicable to this season’s kit) is to use more solids around the badge. Because it’s mostly line work you lose the badge against the background.

    It looks best on this season's second kit, where it's a pink emblem on the navy sash.

    (Am I alone in thinking modern Adidas kits are quite mediocre? Most of those currently worn by Premier League clubs are very generic, and those you see at lower levels just look like off-the-peg Sunday League kits.)

    The 'home' kit is essentially blue. That does not please me. We'd look like Rangers on a TV with dodgy colour balance. We play in pink and blue.

    One first round FA Cup tie and suddenly it’s all about how the kit looks on prime time tv! (Wink emoji)

    why is the replica shirt you can buy have a brighter pink than the one worn by players. Does it fade in the wash?

    I came up with this one while messing around on a customiser site a while back. Always been keen on the idea of pink socks with the home kit to give us a bit more pink in the design.

    Yuck! Our colours are unique, at least anywhere above amateur level. Let's just have something smart and simple, not something with an awful squiggly pattern like an old television screen on the blink. Don't think our sponsor's logo would look great on that either.

    I always think if a football shirt can't be accurately described in one simple sentence it's probably rubbish.

    I do agree that our home kit should have more pink though.

    I love it personally - it's based on the West Germany shirt often considered the best football shirt of all time. But of course we all have our own opinions. There are a lot of very popular football shirts out there that I think are awful.

    I can certainly agree with you there!

    Wasn’t that design a graph representing their finishing positions in recent tournaments? We might need to update for dhfc? London senior cup flatline at semi final position perhaps?

    I would like to see the return of pink and blue quarters personally.

    It's a lovely looking shirt, but it's really a blue shirt with a small amount of pink detail, and not pink and blue.

    Reverse the colours.

    I heard that recently too but apparently it's an urban myth.

    Something has gone awry with the club's website, with out of date articles and blank pages

    On the plus side, Nathan Green is back.

    Not on the basis of what I saw last night.
