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
Was supposed to be going to Beeston AFC v Awsworth Villa, but after a week of trying to contact anyone at Beeston AFC without any success and then in the morning Hazel not feeling too well, I decided to stay local as I go in to Hospital for between 7 and 10 days on Sunday Evening. I had a look at the local fixtures and knowing a few hoppers would be at Kirton, I checked with secretary Jamie Birch the game would be on.
Hoppers had indeed turned up from as far as Southampton, Norwich, Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Retford. Mrs Birch was doing a steady trade in her Refreshment table with the fresh chicken and stuffing rolls going very well with me having Cheese and onion rolls to tuck in to.
The game kicked off and the visitors looked quicker to that first ball and after just 10 minutes, IAN MARLEY opened the scoring to put United 1-0 in front. Kirton kicked off and again Keyworth closed them down quickly and on 13 minutes JACK SMITH doubled the score to 2-0. On 15 minutes, came the goal of the game, when left winger CALLUM BARRATT cut in from the left wing and hit a volley from outside the area that dipped in to the top right of the net to make it 3-0.
On 43 minutes, DANIEL BIRCUMSHAW gave the homesters some hope when he beat the oncoming Keyworth keeper and made it 3-1.
On 52 minutes, the referee saw a adjudged incident to which he awarded the visitors a penalty which upset some of the Kirton faithful, to which GREG WHATNALL stepped up and planted home.
On 65 minutes, Jack Smith got his second and his sides fifth goal of the game. Kirton were beginning to crumble whilst Keyworth introduced JURGEN CHARLESWORTH off the bench and after just 40 seconds with his first touch on 71 minutes, he had the ball in the back of the net.
On 75 minutes with Jack Smith looking down on goal looking for his hat trick, LUKE BURRELL sneaked the ball off him and scored Keyworth's seventh.
