Tuktuk Day 88

It was good to hear from Christian Obray yesterday and he advised me that he had been on the road again. Like Darren Ashley he is promoting the non-league game by visiting various non-league grounds and spotlighting them. I know that he is enjoying his trips and that mr readers are enjoying following Christian and Darren. Here is his Stafford Rangers, for example.

This week the spotlight turns on Southam United near Coventry. He says, “This time we are venturing through the turnstile looking at Southam United, based in Warwickshire.

Southam United, established in 1905 through the merger of two village teams, boasts a rich history of success in various leagues and cup competitions. From dominating the Coventry and North Warwickshire League in the 1940s and 1950s to achieving notable victories in the Midland Combination, the club has seen its share of triumphs and challenges.

Key highlights include winning the Coventry Evening Telegraph Cup and securing titles in the Midland Combination. Despite setbacks such as relegation due to pitch size issues, Southam United persevered, eventually reclaiming their place in Premier Division football.

Bob Hancocks stands as the club’s all-time leading goalscorer and appearance holder, recognized for his remarkable contributions with the FA Long Service Award. In 2001, the club merged with Southam Town FC, further expanding its reach and development initiatives, particularly in youth and women’s football….

Sadly, FC Deportivo Galicia do not have a game today but we are at home on Monday againsy our old friends from Molesey. 11,30am k.o. All welcome!

Please remember that the purpose of this day challenge is to raise funds for the club and an equal amount for Prostate Cancer. As always, I HOPE you are all enjoying the tour of the UK and that you will consider a donation 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 continued their great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can.
