About Me

I'm a director of Maidenhead United Football Club. For ten seasons one of my roles at the club was to produce the match programme. The aim of this blog was to write football related articles for publication in the match programme. In particular I like to write about the representation of football in popular culture, specifically music, film/TV and literature. I also write about matches I attend which generally feature Maidenhead United.

Not there yet

A glorious day was surely set fair to see Maidenhead complete their escape from relegation. It looked that way when at the start of the second half Jefferson Louis gave United the lead from a penalty which also saw Dorchester reduced to ten men. But the goal also heralded the arrival onto the field of play of Kyle Critchell. Rumour had it that the Dorset club had opted to save money by dispensing with the team coach only for Critchell's car to break down with his subsequent late arrival at York Road leading him to be relegated on the bench. His exuberant presence on joining the game more than made up for the loss of his teammate, not least with a thumping header to equalise. Other results, especially Lewes' late winner at Havant means what happens on Monday afternoon will dictate the level of tension next Saturday.
