. Man U have Ronaldo: Hastings United WFC has Wonaldo. Magic Wond gave a virtuoso performance in The Cage of Dreams this morning and drew applause from the crowd of one man and his dog. Puffing Paul will have nightmares all weekend about the two exquisite nutmegs lain upon him […]

More than 20 players turned out for a humid workout under the dazzling setting sun and some superb walking football was on show along with some very sweaty bibs.

  Fabulous over fifties football at the Stade Geriatrica tonight. Some superb scoring, sublime saves, a silly own goal and scintillating skills on show. The final score of 8-2 didn’t really do the game justice – it was much closer than that. The Lemons started the better and took an […]

  Height of summer and a miserable drizzle. But it couldn’t dampen the usual Saturday morning enthusiasm in the Cage of Dreams. Seven-a-side Blueberries vs Lemons today with a couple of new lads included. Posh Richard – discovered by the Nutkin loitering in St Andrew’s Market and Matty’s Mate Randy, […]
