Season So Far
Morcambe are having a great season at home so far knocking in 16 goals and conceeding 3. So far they've put 5 past Woking, 4 past Forest Green, 3 past Stevenage and 2 past Halifax!
Stevenage did manage to get a goal and the only team to succeed so far at Christie Park are Yeovil who won 2-1 in the third game of the season.
Luckily for the Bees 'The Shrimps' away form is not so hot, with only a 2-1 win away to Hereford and a 1-1 draw at Margate. They've let in 10 goals on their travels, twice picking the ball out of the net 3 times, at Kettering and Northwich.
Hopefully this should be an action packed game. The Bees should be on a high after a tremendous display at Stevenage on Monday night in a 2-1 win and with the return of Wayne Purser the points should be ours!
The BFCSA are hosting a Pop Quiz in the Durham Suite in the evening. So what better way to celebrate three points than a few swift jars and entering the quiz (followed by a few more jars).
Below is Barnet and Morcambe's league details based on their Home and Away performances.
Below are the result grids for Barnet and Morcambe so far this season. These show how many times various scores have been attained by each club.
Morcambe were formed in 1920 and joined the Lancashire Combination. They played at Woodhill Lane but moved to Roseberry Park the following season. They won the league in 1924/25 and were runners up the next term. The ground was re-named Christie Park.
From 1927 to the end of the War Morcambe were not very succesful, but finished fourth in the 46/47 season.
1960/61 was possibly their best season when they were League Champions, Lancashire Junior Cup Winners, also reaching the 3rd round of the FA Cup losing 0-1 to Weymouth in front of a record crowd of 9,234.
1966/67 was another good one, winning the League and Combination Cup. This was achieved again the following season, also being the first non-league club to win the Lancashire Senoir Cup.
In 1973/74 Morcambe triumphed at Wembley, beating Dartford 2-1 in the FA Trophy.
Then a ten year baron period followed, with financial problems and poor performances on the pitch, but the 1985/86 season saw a third place (Northern League) League position and winning the Junior Cup.
1994/95 sees Morcambe getting promotion into the Conference after finishing runners-up.They finished 9th in their first season.
Chritie Park has had a lot of money spent on it and is now up to League standard.
Morcambes most succesful season in the Conference so far was 1999/2000 when they finished third. Last season they ended up one place behind the Bees in sixth.
