Tuktuk Day 63

Well, it’s Saturday again and that can only mean that Darren is off to a game and we’ll be following his exploits tomorrow and that FC Deportivo Galicia’s gallant youths will have continued their season. Today it was Windsor FC who I have always liked if nothing else for their fantastic kits. Now, I know “love is blind” and that anybody saying they like something is entirely subjective but look at these beauties!

The Windsor team has had a pretty tough season but are safe from any relegation fears with Hillingdon Borough and Holmer Green unlikely to catch up. Before today they had amassed only three away wins and altogether had conceded 89 goals (Amersham have conceded 30!)

Probably the bigger story of the day is the FA writing to step 5 & 6 clubs telling them that the season will NOT be extended. Now, that’s a bit of an issue as some clubs have almost twenty games left to play! Hillingdon Borough have I think 19, London Colney not many less and Westside in Step 5 have only played 20 league games this season because of their cup runs. As at 1pm today the ONLY games left on in the Combined Counties four divisions were:
Epsom Vs Sandhurst
Broadfields Vs Wallingford and Crowmarch
FC Deportivo Vs Windsor
Langley Vs Westside

(..and Hillingdon Borough have wisely arranged a 7pm KO at neutral Bedfont Sports against British Airways just to squeeze a game in on the artificial turf.)

So, that’s going to add a huge number of problems for the clubs and fixture secretaries. Somebody wrote, “The whole of S.E. England is a puddle.” I think “a pond” may be a better description.

Not the greatest game but a 2-1 win courtesy of a 90th minute own goal secured three points for the home side. Why we love football…maybe!

I would be very grateful if you would consider a donation however small to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK  If everybody chipped in £1 I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier in West London whilst the charity continues their great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can. If you can’t you can still help massively by sharing this page about the work of Prostate Cancer.

THANKS, Steve.
