Payonthegate 2021

Looking back on last year I was surprised to recall the number of games I was lucky to watch.

The year started in lockdown and television football was the only way of seeing a game but there were still some highlights in the early months and I have put together my favourite football Posts of each month.

January – Reading, Working Class Heroes about Rayo Vallecano.

February – Reminiscing about my favourite football food.

March – All Hope Gone, a low point of the year.

April – watching ‘Finding Jack Charlton’, what a man.

May – Yippee, football was back and just round the corner where Glapwell are making a comeback.

June – Finding the quarterly magazine ‘Nutmeg’. Although about Scottish football the writing in this nearly 200 page publication is superb, engaging and professional.

July – The F.A. publish their re-organisation for Non-League football. Clarity and a chance to plan (dream).

August – Finding Belper Town FC a great local progressive club.

September – Finally making it to Tow Law Town and not being disappointed.

October – Folkestone Invicta and another up and coming club. Great facilities.

November – A trip to see Percy Main, another long term goal achieved but that was trumped by being at Clarence Park to see St Albans beat Forest Green in the F.A. cup.

December – Right at the end of the year the amazing turnout at Hallam F.C. where a crowd of 1128, (The inside cover of the program said the ground capacity was 1000), saw them go top of the League in a pulsating game on a difficult pitch.

2022 beckons and despite Omnicron it looks like football will carry on and I have a lot more journeys and goals to achieve. Thank you for reading my blog and the feedback I get.
