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
Headed to Kirton Brickworks as I had a Groundhop meeting with them after the match..Heres the LINK for more information about the Groundhop. On arrival was greeted by Kirton Chairman and team manager Tony March and then Secretary Jamie Birch who looked a bit worse for wear after Black Friday. Along came several hoppers including the most well known duo Len and Ben. Jamie kindly did the lines up sheet for me and I strolled over to the far side of the ground for the First Half and stood and had a chat with the referee's dad, must say I felt young ref Alistair Hill had a very good game.
The pitch over my side was very boggy whilst the rest of the pitch looked in a good condition..It was the visitors who began the brighter and had a couple of chances before in the 7th minute, TROY SMITH made it 1-0 to them. After 21 minutes, a ball was played in to the area and ball ended up in the back of the net through a own goal to double Joyce's advantage. After 29 minutes, the visitors had a Corner on the left side taken by Troy Smith and up rose MARK BUCKLE to head in goal number 3 for his side. Kirton then seemed to have a spell in the game, but put the visiting keeper under no pressure.
After the half time cuppa supplied kindly by Teresa who does a great job in the refreshments area, infact that good Len said the Chicken and Stuffing Rolls were of excellent value for a quid and he proved this by munching 3 down during the game and then taking 3 home with him, whilst Ben licked his lips. The Second half kicked off and Burton went straight back on the attack and RYAN CLEMENTS hit a low cross shot in to the corner of the net to make it 4-0. Len and Ben then joined me along with Scott Ricketts dad and on 52 minutes it soon became 5-0 to the visitors as TROY SMITH got his second of the afternoon. Kirton pushed forward and had several shots that flew over the bar or straight in to the keepers arms. It was back to normal service in the 66th Minute, when MARK BUCKLE made it 6-0 and it was looking very grim for Kirton as a couple of heads began to fall. With a couple of subs made, this seem to slow the game down a bit but after 81 minutes, TROY SMITH completed his hat trick and the scoring on the day to leave give his side a comfortable 7-0 away victory.
