Each year, me and my wife Hazel have decided to help a Charity, by donating 25p every goal we see at the matches we attend. Over the years, people and clubs have also donated as we have visited the grounds and we have raised over £2,300 in the 3 seasons we have run the Blog.
During the 2014-15 season, we are supporting "Support Dogs" who train Dogs to transform lives of people with Autism and other disabilities. So if you would like to make a donation(no matter how small) and you see me at a match, please come up to me or Hazel, we would be very grateful. All Donators will get a mention on the blog.

Pre Season Friendly
Admission £2 inc Programme
Attendance 42
Germany v Brazil or Teversal v Parkgate..give me Non League Football any time and so did the 42 that also attended this Pre Season game at Teversal Grange.
Pre match saw me have a chat with old friend Kev Newton and tea was pie and chips that are always good here cooked by his lovely wife Alison.
Teversal began the brighter but it was Parkgate from the Rotherham area who had the first chance where the home keeper had to be at this best to spread low and save a one on one chance to avoid the visitors taking a early lead.
On 10 minutes, Teversal took the lead when Naughton lifted the ball over the away advancing keeper. Both side were playing some good football and both keepers had to have their wits about them to keep the score down.
Teversal looked to be holding on till half time to preserve their slender lead, but Parkgate was applying more of the pressure and after 43 minutes got a just rewarded equaliser through MORLEY who slotted home from close range.
The Second Half began and so did the mountain of subs which slowed the game down a bit and took a bit of the pace off the game. Parkgate looked to just be a little pace quicker to the ball with Teversal depending on quick breakaways.
In the 79 minute, a ball was played in from the left which the Teversal defence failed to clear and YOUNG struck home from the back post.
After the match, Ryan Atkins made a donation of £2 to the Blog;s charity and as I was leaving the ground, Keith Parnell kindly donated £10.
So after watching 2 matches,  I have seen 14 goals and the charity pot now stands at £25.50 towards the Support Dogs Charity.
