Wished ladies cricket was around when I was knee high to a grass-hopper

It certainly was Mary1947 on my wives side of the family she had two aunts who played for Notts womens team one as a wicketkeeper the other as a bowler. They both worked  at Players and lived in the Lenton area of Nottingham.

Football is/was the beautiful game..........nobody loved the game more than me.......played till i was nearly 40....loved Forest and County...........however money took over alot of years ago now....

Forest in 2nd division......early 50s   Run by a commitee.. Reserves in Midland league.. Trent end 1/6 Players going to Ground on the Bus... Had to take a job in Summer

Can't argue too much with that one Ben, I must have seen Wally Ardron play when I was about four or five years old but can't actually remember it. Obviously that is a team drawn over a few era's.

Hi OZ

Thanks for info,  maybe I was too young at the time to appreciate cricket in those days.  When you attended school all the girls played in sport was, school board which was like rounder's and Hockey and that was it.

When I  finally  reached teenage years, it was down to the ice rink no not to skate ( well we did that as well)

but to see what boys were available .  It's only that as I  have got older that i  like watching cricket.  Went to Melbourne  in Australia watched  the cricket on boxing day.  It was nice siting in the sun.

Wow Mary. You got to worship the cricket gods at the MCG on Boxing Day, something that so many Australians aspire to do. It is a fantastic stadium when filled to capacity. I put that on par with watching the Sydney Hobart yachts sail out of the Heads at Sydney, also on Boxing Day, from a vantage point on South Head with some crisp white wine or a beer and some prawns.

A great 0-1 away win at Northampton takes the Stags to Wembley for the play off final.

That's Forest and Stags there so Come on You Maggies.

Sadly all over for the Magpies with a 1-2 extra time home defeat by Grimsby Town.

It is up to Forest and the Stags to fly the Nottinghamshire flag high at Wembley. Anyone going?

I hope it's all going wrong for that idiot footballer who has been prosecuted for ill treating his cat. He'd be hanging up by his testicles if I had my way.

It is a BIG weekend for local football with two of the local teams playing for promotion at Wembley.

On Saturday the Stags take on Port Vale. They drew 1-1 at Field Mill in October, lost 3-1 away in March. On that form Port Vale have to be favourites but I hope the Stags recent form holds them in good stead.

On Sunday Forest take on Huddersfield. Forest beat Huddersfield 2-0 away in the league in September, lost 1-0 at home in December and beat them 2-1 at the City ground in the 5th round of the cup. It is going to be a close one and I hope Forest come away with the win that takes them back to the premier league.

Just wish I could watch the games live on Sky Football but it is not available in Aus.

All over for the Stags, comprehensively beaten by Port Vale. No promotion this year.

Been listening on a local radio station and will be doing the same tomorrow.

Just a thought, hope Radford Red’s travel plans haven’t come unstuck and he makes it home for his Wembley outing,  with so much chaos at airports this weekend.   You Redssssss!

Sounded like a very scrappy game and in the end settled by an own goal! Look at the scoreboard as my old coach used to say. Forest promoted Yaaaaay!

The footballer Zouma has received 180 hours community service and banned from keeping cats for 5 years.

Remember as a kid 70,s my mate chris radford was mad on nottm forest,  me having no knowledge of football went along with him , as the players were getting off the coach , chris said get as many autographs as you can , i ran up to a smart dress guy near the coach and said gizz yer autograph mate , he replied you can have it if you want i am the coach driver, i believe Mckay was the manager at the time !
