After being bored during the rest season, it was good to come and see some footie and what a good match to start with. On arrival, I bumped in to Simon Matters & Howard, closely followed by Greg Osborne, Pete and Mac Senior.

After tucking in to the excellent Pie and Chips and gravy, I joined Malc "the bearded wonder" and Kev and strolled round to the far side where we nestled under the covers of the stand in the pouring rain.

The First twenty minutes of the game were very even, but with Tevvies first real attack, down went a player in the box and the spot was pointed to by the experianced ref Craig Langton..Up stepped Tevvie's captain Dave Cockerill to hammer the ball home.

Sutton picked up the pace and pressed forward and ten minutes before half time, Craig Mitchell pounced on a loose ball to equalise.

Half time arrived and the rain eased, so I took a stroll over to the changing room side of the ground, where I met Darren Wragg who looks great after only having had a Kidney Transplant only a month. Darren gave me a lift home after, as Brian Wheatcroft who gave me a lift there, his mum had been rushed in to hospital and had to rush off, so hoping that Brian;s mum a speedy recovery.

Half way through the Second Half, I spotted AFC Mansfield's new Manager Mickey Taylor on his own, so went over and had a chat to him, in meanwhile on the pitch, Craig Mitchell had put Sutton Town AFC 2-1 up and within 2 minutes Teversal had pulled it back to 2-2 through Dave Cockerill.

I then spotted the Pinxton FC trio of Kenny Shinfield, smiler Lee Shinfield and Glenn Clarence who donated £2 to the Blog's Charity.

The game went to pens and after a few pens were saved, hit the bar, eventually Sutton Town AFC moved in to the Semi's 4-3 on pens.

A great day today, with a hospital appointment at the cancer clinic 15 of Kings Mill Hospital(to which is the blog's charity) where I was given the great news that I am now in remission and backed up with a fantastic match
