    The guy that is our mascot Rover, original eh? Has been doing it for over twenty years. I know him quite well from the games at home and when travelling to away matches on the clubs coaches.

    Salford away tomorrow, one of few league and non league grounds that is to witness my patronage, hopefully get there next season.

    Hoping for a result!

    Good luck to all our teams!

    England won comfortably v the woolie backs.
    Three games over the weekend for them.
    Can't believe the number of games, the authorities are cramming in.
    Hopefully it won't come crashing down again. Another lockdown, another suspension of the season will be disastrous.

    Keep safe.

    2-2
    Would have taken a point beforehand, but the news that came out just before kick-off, was that a few players had tested positive for covid19, so we had a makeshift team and only youngsters on the bench, we only had 5 subs.

    2-0 down after twenty minutes, it looked all over. But in the last ten minutes we scored a worldy, then in injury time, a scrappy equaliser!

    Well I never!

    Even Carlisle got a result @Cumberland!

    It's going to be interesting to see what this proposal is from Liverpool and Manchester United, to overhaul the premiership, to lower the number of teams to 18, no league cup and quite a sum of money for the lower league clubs.

    England won again last night. 2 wins and a draw puts them at top of group B.

    A really good result!
    But I thought we were lucky to be still in the game at half time!
    We certainly had all the luck!

    Funny coincidence mate, we are also in south Wales v Newport.
    Did think that our game would be postponed because of covid.

    Best luck to all our teams.

    Good win mate. Good goal you scored.

    We were awful (again) I have no idea what is going on. We were lucky to be nil.
    Performance 1 out of 10(0). Shocking.

    At home to Southend, Saturday, if we get beat by them, I'm demanding my money back!!!!!
