Who are ya! Maldon & Tiptree FC profile
Ahead of this Saturdays Buildbase FA Trophy game we take a quick look at our hosts Maldon & Tiptree FC:
- Maldon & Tiptree FC were formed following the takeover of Maldon Town by neighbours Tiptree United. The original Maldon United were then rebranded as Maldon & Tiptree FC.
- Maldon Town were formed in 1946 and Tiptree United in 1933. The two joined forces ahead of the 2010/11 season following the withdrawal of Tiptree United from the Essex Senior League.
- They wear red and blue striped shirts, blue shorts and blue socks representing the predominant colours of the two former teams. Maldon in Blue and Tiptree in Red.
- Their home games are played at the Wallace Binder Ground, Park Drive, Maldon.
- It has a capacity of 2,800 of which 155 are seated.
- The ground features a seated stand on one side and a covered standing area behind one goal. Here’s a video we found that shows what you can expect.
- They are nicknamed The Jammers linking directly to the famous local jam making industry. This nickname was chosen following a poll among supporters.
- They currently sit 6th in The Bostik League North table, having played 9 games, winning 4, drawing 2 and losing 3. They’ve scored 13 goals and conceded 11.
- The Jammers defeated Chalfont St Peter FC 2-0 in the previous round of the FA Trophy, with goals from George Sykes and former Fulham, Millwall, Chesterfield, Colchester United and England U21 defender Matthew Briggs.
