Maidenhead United FC

Saturday 11th November 2017, 1500 KO Maidenhead United FC vs Gateshead FC The Build Up There is an odd anomaly in the top goalscorer table for the Vanarama National League.  Sitting near to the top is a man who hasn’t played since August.  With 44 goals last season, Dave Tarpey was one of the key...

Charlton Athletic FC

Sunday 5th November 2017, 1400 KO Charlton Athletic FC vs Truro City FC The Build Up I’m usually able to write these missives from a strictly neutral standpoint.  Although I’ve naturally developed a fondness for some of the teams I’ve watched – usually based on the people I’ve met along the way, today is the...

Sutton United FC

Saturday 9th September 2017, 1500 KO Sutton United FC vs Gateshead FC The Build Up A last minute change of plans for this weekend saw me unexpectedly free on Saturday afternoon.  I thought carefully about what to do.  Should I spend it with my girlfriend?  Cinema?  A nice walk, perhaps?  Not this callsign.  Gander Green...
