Sidbury United head into 2015 looking to continue what is a remarkable current home record.
Jeremy Schofield’s side have not lost a Fresha league game at Byes Lane since a November 23, 2013 2-1 defeat to Witheridge Reserves! What’s more, since that defeat to Witheridge only one side has left Byes Lane with a point in a league encounter and that was Heavitree United who shared four goals on their visit in October!
Throughout 2014 United were unbeaten at Fortress Byes Lane. They drew their first match – that a January 25 2-2 with University – then won five in succession through to the end of the campaign.
They started the current season with a 0-0 against Willand Rovers Reserves and that remains the only time United have failed to score in a home league game since March 29, 2013 and a 0-1 defeat to Tiverton Town Reserves.
The last ‘first team’ to inflict a league defeat on United at their Byes Lane headquarters were Culm United in a Fresha League Town meeting on April 28, 2012!

In terms of the Sidbury United year of 2014, they played 33 matches, winning 21 of them, drawing six and losing six. They scored 84 goals and conceded 40.
United boss Jeremy Schofield is rightly proud of his team’s home form. He said: “At any level of the game if you are winning your home games and picking up things away the you are always going to be in with a shout come the end of a season. I am fortunate to have a good and very genuine bunch of players who all buy into what we do. Long may the current run last.”

The record gets put to the test for the first time in 2015 with Saturday’s visit to Byes Lane of Thorverton.
United, with the exception of the injured Danny Green, should be back to near full-strength.
