By Danny Caro, February 28, 2014

The sausages and sushi will taste better than ever at Jonathan Adelman’s famous end-of-season BBQ this year.

Two down, five to go. That’s the target for Norstar London Raiders between now and May, and only a brave man would bet against them winning the lot.

Go on Maxi, fill your boots son

VIt never ceases to amaze what happens to some of the world’s finest sportsmen when they cross the thin white line. And even though the prizes on offer are considerably smaller in the amateur game, unsavoury events take place regularly. All in the name of victory and pride.

Lions dream team back in place. Now it’s advantage Takeley

By Danny Caro, January 10, 2014

It was only a matter of time until someone came in for Tony Gold. I’ll be the first to admit I hadn’t heard of Takeley FC before the appointment, but it’s clear this move is a win-win for both parties. A match made in heaven.
