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!”

Nowhere Fast by Mullet
"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
So This is Me ... by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date by roysboys
Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)? by AndrewPC
Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.

I posted an item under the story headlined 'Taylor: Hewitt “Superb”' this morning and unbelievably I didn't receive an avalanche of negatives.
