A Superb Saturday!



Matchday Programme, Wroxham v Hadleigh United 09/04/11 (click for larger image)

The sun was shining, it looked so good outside that I just couldn’t resist it. So I checked a few bus timetables, packed my backpack with an extra fleece, my book and some fruit and out the door I went. I did have a destination in mind but I needed to check that my weekly bus ticket allowed for the journey. Let me explain, because I volunteer most days, the cheapest option to get into the city is to buy a weekly travel ticket which then gives me unlimited travel within the city. Today’s journey would take me beyond the city but after checking the bus companies website, it looked like I could travel to my ultimate destination without further cost (important because I could only afford entry to my ultimate destination and not extra travel expenses). To play safe I’d have to ask the driver of the bus once I got into the city.


Anyway, I catch a bus into the city from where I live, cross the road and wait for what will hopefully be my next bus. It arrives on time and after a quick confirmation from the driver I’m off to a football match 😀 This will be my first game of the season (second really but the first was of a much lower standard). I’m on the bus to Wroxham to watch Wroxham FC versus Hadleigh United FC who both play in the Ridgeons League Premier Division.

I’ve been a follower of this level of local football for several seasons and I’ve really missed not going to watch it. Before the separation from my wife I used to watch Diss Town FC most weeks, I even had a short time on the committee there and edited their match day programme for a couple of seasons.

Back to today: I arrive at my destination almost two hours after leaving Trevor Towers but it was such a beautiful day and the journey to Wroxham is mainly through countryside so I didn’t mind the time taken one bit.

I’ll gloss over the game itself apart from mentioning that the home side won 2-1 though to my eyes it was a fairly even match. The weather stayed glorious all afternoon and on into the evening. On my return I read my book, swapped buses in the city and was home around seven o’clock this evening. Wroxham are at home again next Saturday, I think I might be there again if I can afford it

I love days like today 😀
