Mid-season report

With nothing better to do on another bright but cold afternoon and games postponed on mass here is my half term report. Nothing though has happened since December 12th due the weather and it is now a fourth consecutive Saturday without any football at all. At the end of last season I made a list of twenty five clubs that I would like to visit this season, and below is that list with a few comments regarding them:

Central Midlands League
Church Warsop MW - still hope to visit, maybe in March or April
Kirkby Town - visited in August
Nettleham - who knows
Pinxton - see above

Leicester & District League
Belgrave - waiting for fixture v Kingsway Rangers
Blaby United - see above
Cosby United - visited in November for fixture v Kingsway
Houghton Rangers - hoping to visit on 23rd January for fixture v Kingsway
Welby Lane United - see Belgrave

Leicestershire Senior League
Melton Mowbray - visited in November for fixture v Barlestone

Midland Football Alliance
Tipton Town - missed fixture with Oadby due to watching Leicester City

Midland Combination
Castle Vale, Fairfield Villa and Meir KA - hope to visit one of them at least before season ends

Southern League
Nuneaton Town and Romulus - same as Midland Combination

Spartan South Midlands League
Ampthill Town - will probably visit sometime in February
Winslow United - withdrew before the season started

United Counties League
Olney Town - plan to visit this season
Rushden & Higham United - will visit this season or next
Sleaford Town - visited in September for their FA Cup tie v Matlock Town

West Midlands (Regional) League
Bloxwich United, Goodrich, Shenstone Pathfinder and Goodrich - would still like to visit one or two before the season ends.

This season my new visits has been across eleven leagues so far with the highest number being in the Notts Senior League. I expect though that this will be surpassed by the Leicester & District League come the season end. A break down is as follows:

Central Midlands League Kirkby Town, Louth Town
Football Conference Mansfield Town
Leicester & District League Cosby United, Glen Villa, Mountsorrel Amateurs
Leicestershire Senior League Melton Mowbray
Midland Combination AFC Smethwick, Shirley Town
Midlands Regional Alliance Melbourne Dynamo
Northamptonshire Combination Medbourne
Notts Senior League Attenborough, Bulwell, Cotgrave Welfare, Magdala Amateurs
Southern League Cirencester Town
United Counties League Sleaford Town
Welsh League Newcastle Emlyn
