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.

Notts Senior League
Senior Division

Since my last visit to Butt Lane, the home of Bingham Town FC, they have but two new dugouts at this Country Town ground. This venue will be the First Ground we visit on the Saturday Morning on this seasons Notts Senior League Football Groundhop..All information can be found on this LINK. Bookings are already going very well and there are now only 15 seats left on the coach. The Refreshements at this club is superb..heres part of the board
Both of todays teams having been doing well of late and before the game sat in 3rd and 4th place in the League Table, so a close game was expected.
Both sides set out their stalls early in the game, with them both cancelling each other out with very few chances. After 28 minutes, a throughball from the Wollaton midfield, saw Jordan Alls through on goal with the advancing home keeper stopping the ball with his hand outside of the area, leaving Referee Thomas Tolond no choice but to produce his first red card of the game.
Wollaton failed to test the new keeper and the score remained at 0-0 for half time.
In to the second Half and Wollaton looked like making the man advantage work but again Bingham proved hard to breakdown. On the hour, the ball fell to Jordan Alls inside the box with the goal at his mercy, only for him to scuff his shot well wide. After 61 minutes JORDAN ALLS made amends when from the far side of the area steered home a loose ball to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.
Bingham didn't lay down and battled forward and on 73 minutes got a deserved equaliser when TOM SPENCER hit a rasping cross shot from the right side of the area to level the scores at 1-1. It looked now that the home side would take the game by the scruff of the neck and go on to win the game, but tired legs were beginning to set in and on 82 minutes, ADAM CAMPBELL hit a low long range shot that left the stand in keeper just watching as it hot the back of the net.
As we entered the final couple of minutes, there seemed to be abit of a melee over the clubhouse side of the pitch, where a second Bingham player received a red card and a Wollaton player also followed him to the changing room along with the visiting Assistant Manager. At the final whistle, another home player was dismissed for a alleged comment made.
