    What a disappointment – being 12k miles away does not make it any easier – thought we were in for a good run this year especially after excellent win at North Shields. League is still a possibility – hoping that somebody manages to take some points off other top teams.

    Best Wishes to everybody at the Club – I miss the trips to away games and disappointed to miss last seasons long awaited League Championship
