Having covered a few matches

“Footballers are stupid, give them a bit of responsibility and watch them mess up”. -Brian Clough.

Having covered a few matches over the last 20 years, and not seen very many Red cards, and GCFC suffering a near last minute red card a week or so ago, I wondered what the records were for Red Cards.

The fastest & probably the funniest was Cross Farm Park Celtic striker Lee Todd, who was sent off just two seconds into a game back in October 2000. Todd had his back to referee at the start of Cross Farm’s Sunday league game against Taunton East Reach Wanderers, and was startled by the force with which the whistle was blown for kick-off. “Fuck me, that was loud,” muttered Todd, and the referee promptly showed him the red card.

Dave Pratt hit the headlines in December 2008 when he received a straight red card in a Southern Premier League game between Chippenham Town & Bashley after a mere 3 seconds.


@guildfordcity FC v Tiverton Town

GCFC 700pixSaturday the 7th September GCFC face opposition that are travelling nearly 3 hours from the West Country for the game at the Spectrum in Guildford for a 1500hrs kick off.

Tiverton Town are mid-table currently whereas GCFC are languishing down at the bottom of the league. Knowing how hard travelling can be in this league, we can only hope that they travel as badly as GCFC have.

After the last performance away at North Leigh, City really need to lift their game. With a couple of players carrying knocks from the last match, I hope that they can return fit and that we are able to put out our strongest & fittest squad.

On the upside, my 120-300mm F2.8 should be returned from being serviced tomorrow (Thank You Daniel at Sigma) so with luck it will fully functional. As long as UPS don’t loose or drop it!

Go On City!!!
