14 years since they fired blanks

Popples claiming possible unique record

Division Two Newton Poppleford are wondering whether they may have set a unique record. They drew 0-0 with Halwill last saturday, and think it is 14 years since they completed a match without either side scoring. A quick check on fulltime confirms this has not happened for at least the last eight years, in league or cupties, so the Popples may well be correct in their claim.

Former Popples secretary Ken Woodsford contacted the League with this info, and thinks his records are correct, but can other clubs dispute this claim or maybe have a unique record they would like to publish.
