There was another cracking story while I remember about it being so rammed at Leeds Road in the early days that one kid jumped up to celebrate a goal and didn't touch the ground again until full time.
my Grandad used to lose his hat every time a goal was scored - everybody threw in the air - and often they wouldnt get back until the end of the game!
To keep it wine related,I happen to know the fantastic chairman Dean Hoyle is a wine lover but I shouldnt say where he BI's his wine from.
I find myself at the start of October, feeling pleased that HTAFC is moving towards the "safety point"
There's plenty of money, and ego, down in the Vanarama leagues. Forest Green Rovers are spending almost £3 million per YEAR in trying to buy their way into the football league. That's a bigger budget than some Championship clubs! All financed by ecotricity owner Dale Vince and his ego. Eastleigh's owner has just converted £5 million worth of debt into shares as he prepares for his exit. He's spent that, and more, in 4 years. The likes of Barrow, Dover and Gateshead (and more) are all propped up by wealthy owners, spending far more money than a club of their size can generate on their own.Of course, there are plenty of small local teams further down the league pyramid that are worthy of your support. You should try it. There is something about sipping a pint on the halfway line in a rain storm watching Vanarama Southern League match in December.
Certainly not much money or ego down there. Or entertainment to be fair.
By law, alcohol cannot be drunk in sight of the pitch at Step 5 or higher. That means clubs from the Premier League, Football League and Vanarama National. I'm pretty sure it also applies to international matches in the UK. Clubs at Step 6 or below are free to do as they please.I was being unclear - beer is allowed to be drunk on the terraces. In fact, in my experience this is correct for all levels of football in England. The previous 3 visits to different major grounds, during last couple of years, all served 'beer' which could be consumed in your seat.
It's to limit the amount of alcohol people can drink, presumably to stem bad behaviour. So if you want to get ratarsed you have to do it before the match and can only top up at half time, which is limited as much by the queues at the kiosks as it is by the minutes available!
He wasn't sacked. And it isn't at all clear that anything he did would amount to misconduct sufficient to justify sacking.How you can get paid off when sacked for misconduct?
A little research show as of November 2014, since 1872 the teams have played 112 matches; England have won 47, Scotland 41, and there have been 24 draws so some catching up to do.A passionate and resurgent Scotland at Wembley is surely something to whet the appetite of Mr C, and make all of us south of the border a little fearful.
