Loach in the Pink
Thursday, 17th Jan 2013 18:19
Blues keeper Scott Loach will wear pink gloves and boots for the next month in order to raise breast cancer awareness.
Loach told the club site: “I will be wearing pink boots and gloves for the next month as a way of raising awareness for breast cancer.
“My Mum had breast cancer and she really suffered during that time, so I like to raise awareness of it. Thankfully she’s okay now but obviously it’s a subject very close to my heart.
“I’ve done something every year ever since and I wanted to do something a little bit different this year, so that’s how I came up with the idea of the pink boots and gloves.
“In the past I’ve held parties and charity games but this year I wanted to take the pink onto the pitch and I settled on the idea of pink gloves and pink boots.”
Loach, 24, is also trying raise cash for the charity Against Breast Cancer via a Just Giving page: “Every little bit helps – whether it’s £1 or £100 – and I’m truly grateful as anything we can raise is a positive.
“I’ve set up a Just Giving page for people to donate, which has been up and running for a day or two now and the response has been great so far. The fans are getting involved, which is great, and we just need to get the word out there now.
“All the lads are on board with it too and they will all be contributing, which is really good of them as they know it’s for a good cause.
“Arran Lee-Barrett will also be wearing pink gloves and will have the bottoms of his Nike boots sprayed pink, which is in aid of breast cancer too.”

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.
The Question We're All Asking: Is Relegation a Serious Possibility? by Superfrans
With a pretty horrible run of five matches coming up, I know I’m not the only fan to have serious concerns about the possibility of relegation.
Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
