Over the summer

Since the end of my last game of football at the end of April I have not been to and also had many chances to watch sport of any kind. On only two occasions in June has this occured, one greyhound racing meet and one game of rugby league.

The greyhound racing was at Sittingbourne on Saturday 6th June whilst on holiday at Allhallows-on-Sea in Kent and the game of rugby league saw me take in the Leicester Phoenix - Coventry Bears game the following Saturday. Leicester won this encounter with two late tries to win 34-30.

The pre-season friendlies for me will begin on Tuesday night with a short trip to Rothwell in Northamptonshire for their game against Conference side Rushden & Diamonds. I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but the last two times I have seen Rothwell play they have conceded 13 goals and scored none. Other possible fixtures at present are...

Tuesday 14th July: Brixworth All Saints v Wellingborough Town
Tuesday 21st July: Shepshed Dynamo v Kirby Muxloe
Saturday 25th July: Desford v Ibstock United
Tuesday 28th July: Blaby & Whetstone Athletic v Friar Lane & Epworth
Sunday 2nd August: Leicester City v Real Valladolid
