Tamworth FC make it a dozen!

Saturday, 24th January 2015

MASSIVE congratulations are in order for Andy Morrell’s Tamworth team today as they they win their twelfth game in a row, making them the most ‘in-form’ team IN THE WORLD.

Defeating Stalybridge Celtic today by a massive 4-1 means The Lambs have taken another three points, keeping them securely in third place of the Vanarama Conference North, just 7 point behind the top spot.

The twelve game winning streak has officially placed them in the position of being the most ‘in form’ team in the world, ahead of the likes of  European giants Bayern Munich and Benfica.

The growing point has also been complimented by the swelling crowds, as 965 people came through the gates at The Lamb ground to see them win.

This was supported by the clubs decision to again make this today’s game a ‘Kids for a Quid’ event, one which the club have said they will review on a game by game basis.

The recent winning streak has helped catapult The Lambs from the dangers of relegation – having previously won just twice in 16 matches – to third in the league since Andy Morrell’s arrival as manager in September.

Tamworth are now just four wins shy of creating a new Conference North record as they close in on Northwich Victoria’s run of 15 successive wins nine years ago.

Tamworth’s next game is on Saturday 31, Away against 11th place Oxford City, hopefully they can make their winning streak a bakers dozen!

On Saturday 7 February they then take on Barrow with a 3pm kick off at The Lamb.

The Vanarama Conference North as of 24/01/15.
