Season 2013-2014

POST AMENDED ! Took me ages to put the original post together - then I was told I had been greatly mis-informed - and I should know better....the CMFL is not, repeat not to have roll on -roll off subs for season 2013-2014.

July sees the bearded wonder and the daftlad trying to shake off that closed season malaise that always reappears after the dying embers of the season past finally splutter into nothing more than faded memories. 

We had a really bad 2012-2013 season - the Hucknall Town saga killed what promised to be another fine season. We were determined to "tick off" several new venues - using the fuel money saved by having a season ticket at Watnall Road to travel a little further afield. Ill health and growing lack of interest put paid to that idea - we actually failed to visit a single new ground last season!

Hopefully I can persuade Kev to join me in buying a members season ticket for Basford Utd for the up-coming season - has to be the best value going.  All NCELP games covered, programme included, all the U19 games covered and 25% off all food and drink bought either in the clubhouse or the ground. We can then visit a few new grounds - a lot of Leicestershire grounds are still on the to do list - with Loughborough Dynamo the top of that list. We promised our good friends and Dynamo stalwarts Barry and Judith we would visit at least once next season.....

July pre-season looks like this (all dates/times/matches subject to change) - please don't blame the author if you get there and the game isn't actually on or kick off time has changed!!!!!
