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
Division Two
Having never been to Devon Park, I decided to pop along and look at two of the Notts Senior league's newest clubs. Newark have been floating around the midway area in the table whilst their visitors have been in the top four, so I went with a average of seeing 5 goals per match this season, thinking this should be a straight forward victory for the away side.
On arrival, was greeted by the Secretary Tony Kelly and was told just to help ourselves to a cuppa, my mum who is still with us till Sunday and Hazel took charge of the tearoom, making drinks for everyone, when Tony told us that our drinks were free, I think mum got a big confused as the home supporters were over the moon at being given free drinks throughout the game!
The game kicked off and was quite even, but in the 11th minute, United were awarded a free kick just outside the area to which MARTIN WALKER hit home to give his side the lead.
The game then went through a dull spell with very few chances but after 39 minutes, ADAM BODDY broke through and beat the keeper in a one on one situation to level up the scoreline.
After the half time cuppa, I joined the Newark Town Chairman to watch the Joe Brumpton show.
After 49 minutes, a cross from the right wing found out JOE BRUMPTON who fired past the approaching keeper.
A few strong challenges began to go in from both sides and the game could have boiled over but credit to both sets of players on calming themselves down.
On 65 minutes, a slow reaction from the away defence saw JOE BRUMPTON flash on to a loose ball and slide it past the keeper in to the bottom corner of the net to make it 3-1.
Bilborough United pushed forward and forced a couple of good saves from the home keeper but Newark kept pushing forward and a long ball found JOE BRUMPTON who snatched his hat trick and gave his side the points.
