I felt a bit cheeky leaving the others to go on an ale trail round Chorley, but I really didn’t want to face a game like this stone cold sober, plus Chorley might be on the small side, but it’s packed with some really good pubs. Not having anything to eat, Val made sure I…… Continue reading 12/5/19 Chorley v Spennymoor Town, National League North Playoff Final, Penalty Clause.
Originally I wasn’t going to bother doing the last game of the season at Reading, as Sky now controls our domestic game at the top level, all championship games are played on a Sunday with a 12:30 kick off, that way, they can take their circus to any ground they deem worthy of an interested…… Continue reading 5/5/19 Reading v Blues, Another Chapter Ends . . . .
