'Allo Jon, Got A New Motor?

Picked the new car up on Friday afternoon.....

Isn't she lovely!!
Well,  I think so...

For the first "run out" on Friday evening, after tea, we went to one of our favourite spots - "The Dams" (Ladybower/Derwent). It was not the brightest of evenings  but there is always a certain "something" about this place. I love it mainly for the quietness and tranquility we always find there.

Saturday brought the car's first "long run" when we went down to Sutton Coldfield to see Belper Town's first game of the new season.

The home side won 3-1 and probably deserved it.

Jon  Froggatt's penalty was only a consolation.
I appreciate this is a new Belper squad with only 4 maybe 5 players left from last season so it'll take time to gel but the main consensus of opinion amongst Belper fans was that the team needs a leader. Someone who can make himself heard and will encourage or bully the players to get the best from them.

My album from the game is here:

and as ever, Tim Harrison, The Master, was there. His pictures are here:

Anyway - not  a great start and the next challenge comes very quickly with the first home game of the season on Tuesday evening when Carlton Town are the visitors to Christchurch Meadow. Carlton are off to a flyer with a 3-0 home win in their first fixture and their confidence will be sky high.

We'll see.

Right - gotta go do somethig else - probably outside in the garden whilst it's still dry and sunny.

See Yer!
