Re: BBC drop classified results service on radio

I was a little surprised to hear they had been dropped, but on reflection, I can't remember the last time I listened to them and didn't already know the scores of all of the games I was interested in because I'd been keeping an eye on them all game. Look around the stands on a match day and you see ...

Re: News of Former Players - it's back!

Absolutely love Maes Tegid. What a beautiful setting that is for football. Been over to watch a number of former Sangrounders there in recent years and wish George all the very best.

Re: Boston predictions

There was a recent report that showed that very few of the 92 FL clubs had both of their kits available due to problems and delays with manufacturing and/or distribution. Those same problems are likely to be facing us.

Re: New Book Coming Soon: The Town's Game

How can I buy one, Dan? It'll be available on Amazon in at least Paperback and Kindle format, and it will be available from the Rugby club, and hopefully the club shop too. Also hoping some independent bookshops will be kind enough to stock it. All being well it'll be available around the start of ...

RIP Alex Russell

I am very sad to have to announce that Alex Russell passed away yesterday evening. I got to know Alex very well over the past few years running the former Players Association and nothing gave me more pride than being able to inducted into the hall of fame in 2019. For the Football Club to lose argua...

Re: RIP Billy Bingham

How about the club renames the stand (which was built during his tenure) after him? Yes, I know they will be seeking sponsors for it but the Jack Carr stand is sponsored and surely the club's finest manager should be as prominent as a former president (all due respect to Jack)? I have also made a r...

Re: Conflict of interests?

Shareholders in any business are interested primarily in profits, I should think!!
