Day Faces Charity Assault Course Challenge
Wednesday, 8th May 2013 16:15
Supporters Trust committee member Carl Day and nine others will be taking on the challenge of completing a 20-mile, 200-obstacle assault course, the world’s largest, at Burghley on Saturday to raise money for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Carl, whose previous charity exploits have included running the London Marathon dressed in full armour, would welcome both individual and corporate sponsorship: “I and nine others have formed Team Procurus in our attempt to complete the longest, hardest assault course in the world on 11th May 2013.
“We are looking for both normal sponsorship and for those companies wanting to be part of this you can purchase advertising space on our shirts.”
Carl, 46, who recently stepped down from his role as Trust chairman after a decade, admits to being concerned about what he’s going to be putting himself through: “This is going to hurt and I am slightly terrified about this challenge but I will put myself and the rest of Team Procurus through hell to justify your support!”

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.
The Rebuild Conundrum and Inevitable Humdrum by BaltachaFanClub
Regular readers of my posts and occasional blogs will know a few things about me, firstly I am not a kneejerk reaction kind of poster, secondly I have progressed through all the stages of football fan and am now whatever is considered the final stage, where although I still love the game, I have seen it, done it and have gone all 'more important things'.
