Lost in…Irlam (Irlam Steel)

Irlam Steel v Westbury Sports Irlam Steel Recreation Ground / Manchester League Division One / 17th May 2016 My wanderlust has seen me spend very little time at my Salfordian home over the past 5 years. If I’m not galivanting about the place watching football, it’s usually because I’m in work and for me work is Irlam … Continue reading

Whaley Bridge AFC V Eagle Sports Horwich Park / Cheshire League / 14th May 2016 “Where are you going this week…Buxton again? Or New Mills?” This has been the running joke for the best part of 2 years from my colleague James. For some reason, he thinks I have some sort of undying love for … Continue reading

Brodsworth Welfare v Retford Town Welfare Road / Central Midlands League North / 5th December 2015 “This should be good! This has spontaneity written all over it.”  – Matt Harrison. The Matt Harrison of 10.34am Saturday 5th December 2015 who texted those words couldn’t have been more right. Those words were sent to my groundhopping … Continue reading

Fulwood Amateurs v Squires Gate Lightfoot Lane / Friendly / 18th July 2015 Just like John ‘Hannibal’ Smith in The A-Team, ‘I love it when a plan comes together.’ However, it’s sometimes more fun when a plan quickly falls apart. In one fell swoop our Saturday football plans were destroyed. Me and Gibbo had been looking forward to … Continue reading

Hucknall Rolls Leisure v Notts County Watnall Road / Friendly / 11th July 2015 (Okay, weird title I know, but bear with me). I regularly cite Nottingham as one of my favourite cities in the country. It really is brilliant. 2014 saw me visit the city 3 times – twice unintentionally. The first was the … Continue reading

Longridge Town v Colne The Mike Riding Ground / Friendly / 4th July 2015 The tumbleweed of June has blown past and football is back in my life. Okay, so it hadn’t really been away that long, since I had attended a game on the last day of May and here I am back on … Continue reading

Chapel Town v Walshaw Sports Rowton Park / Manchester League / 16th May 2015 By mid-April, I had the closing weeks of my 2014/2015 Lost Boyos travels all mapped out, all the way to a bizarre final game on Sunday 31st May – I won’t reveal what that game is now, but it’ll be blogged about and … Continue reading

Turton FC v Prestwich Heys Thomason Fold / Bolton Hospital Cup / 7th April 2015 Easter Monday was to be a day of joyous celebration. At the time of the year when people are celebrating the arising of Jesus, many of the natives of Atherton were celebrating the rising up the leagues of Atherton Collieries with … Continue reading

Lost in…Rochdale (Town)

When I wrote down the remaining fixtures that I would be attending this season, the amount of games added up to 68 for the season. I decided that 68 was not a good number and that this had to rounded up. So, last Thursday night saw me head to the NWCFL Challenge Cup final between … Continue reading
