  1. More worries for the poor officials, then. (chuckles quietly to ones self !!)
  2. A STOOL ? Surely a deck-chair would be better !! (Sorry ! I couldn't resist it. Reminds me of a conversation I overheard on a hospital ward recently. Doctor to Patient "Are your stools brown or black ?" The mind boggles !!!!)
  3. Thanks Chris. Any idea who is sponsoring Jersey ? I imagine they must be putting the same sort of travel/accomodation deal that Guernsey did when the came into the League a few years ago.
  4. That's a question for someone with more up to date information. Chris C, possibly. I've never heard of Croydon based being a problem to joining the CCL.
  5. Hope there's a doctor and a couple of nurses attending. Defib essential !!
  6. How quickly a season passes !
  7. At least ! Who would pay for them in local leagues ? The three officials fees are already too much for some of the smaller clubs. Sin bins would have to be located well away from the dugouts as wll - More expense.
  8. That might have some effect, Cuppa.
  9. A very good post. Incidently, the percentage of appeals being upheld is on the increase.
  10. Especially at our age !!!!!!!!
  11. So am I out. Too many bad possibilities.
  12. No other comments to make Burgs ? I trust this change won't affect the standard of the burgers 😲
  13. I eventually managed a trip to Meadowbank last Saturday, after a few months of bad health. Talking to Marc White, I was dismayed to learn that Stan 'The Man' passed away last week. He was devoted to Dorking FC; was a Vice President of the club, kit man, pitch marker and general 'gopher' Regular visitors to DFC in the old days would have encountered him. He lived near me, and I knew I hadn't seem him for some weeks. The last time we bumped into him, he did see very frail. R.I.P. Stan, in that great big pitch of the Hereafter.
  14. After several months of ill-health and several hospital 'visits', I eventually managed to get down Mill Lane, Dorking to the new Meadowbank, Home to Dorking Wanderers. It was very nice to have a chat with Marc White to catch up on local football gossip.. I was very plesantly surprised at what all the people concerned have achieved with the 'new build'. Expensive it may have been, but in my view, very well worth it.
  15. Looks nice for Chertsey. Lets hope sofor them.
  16. 'The Spotted Dog' in South Street Dorking seems to be popular with visiting fans. It also happ[ens to be my 'local' of a Saturday afternoon. Less than 10 minutes walk to Meadowbank.
  17. ... and only a short walk to the ground !
  18. Same from me. Thats four 1966 cup winning squad members gone now.
  19. A sad loss. I remember that World Cup so well. That's four team members that have passed away now. R.I.P.
  20. There is absolutely no truth in the rumour that the Channel Island of Herm, just of Guernsey is considerint to apply !! 😎
  21. What a pearl of a title for the thread !! 😚😚😚😚😲😲😲
