The peak of which was the Belper Town Reserves home game yesterday. Needing a win to secure the championship, they did it in style with a very emphatic 10 (ten!) - 0 win over Forest Town Res.
So the lads completed a league and cup double. And richly deserved it was too. "Well dones" all round, to manager Jon Boyle, his assistant Darren Johnson and of course, the lads in the team, average age 19!
The rest of my photos are here:
A really nice touch came after the game in the clubhouse when Jon & Darren presented the Duchess with a bunch of flowers as a "Thank You" for our support (and the photos) over the season. Thanks guys!
The remainder of the week, leading up to Saturday, was largely uneventful in terms of anything other than work - a topic which is recorded elsewhere!
It was good to see our son Mark for a few days even though it was a 03:45 a.m. "out of bed" last Wednesday morning to take him back to East Midlands airport for an early morning flight home!
He and his wife are planning a trip back here on 13th May, using the ferry and then the tunnel to get back to Holland the following week. Looking forward to that immensely. Really miss the lad to be honest.
Anyway - last I heard it was 1-1 at Hillsboro' which means Sheffield Wednesday are headed for relegation to League 1. They have to beat Crystal Palace today to stay up and send Palace down so a draw isn't good enough. Oh well - as I said to a "Blade" at the game yesterday - at least the Owls still have something to play for - unlike United whose season fizzled out about 6 or 8 weeks ago! (Always look on the bright side!) ;-)
More follows when I have time. for now - have a good week, bearing in mind the election means we are to be generally bombarded with "What If" crap on TV. Can't wait
