Some People Are On The Pitch...

Flabbergasted. What a great word!

The one thing I have been most amazed about so far in writing this blog (since my first post on 24 Aug) is the amount of response I've had. In an earlier post I mentioned the support and encouragement I got from Sittingbourne FC. Since then I have been both surprised and astounded at the number of comments I have received, comments not only left against posts on this site, but also on a number of discussion boards out there. I have always believed that there is a great deal of passion for the game around the lower levels of the pyramid, but your responses (to me at any rate) seem to prove this unequivocally. The real football fans follow teams no matter their status or size. Fantastic.

Some of your comments can be viewed in the "What Are You Saying" section in my main menu.

This is just a quick post to thank all of you who have taken the time and effort to contact me; your encouragement and advice is much appreciated. There are too many to mention, but you know who you are! I continue to welcome all your comments, so please keep them coming...

However, I must give a special thanks to Chris (and Smart) at the Some People Are On The Pitch (SPAOTP) blog for giving me a huge plug. They have a great site, and if you haven't already been over there, go and take a butchers now - if you like anything to do with the beautiful game, you won't be disappointed.

Flabbergasted indeed!

Read about your idea of SPAOTP. Just wanted to wish you good luck from the US!

Aye, good luck. I do like to do as much of the FA Cup from the Ex Prelim as I can, but as my club (Havant & Waterlooville) come in in the second qualifying round, I couldn't commit to following it through as a proper road to Wembley feature.

Still reports from Stansted in the Ex Prelim and Erith & Belvedere in the Prelim are now up on my site - and this site also now appears in my links column.

A return would be appreciated but not essential.

Enjoy the trail!

Thanks for your comment, you never know, I may end up down on your patch in a later round! I've enjoyed reading your blog, it looks as if you are a pro at all of this. Thanks for the link in your site; I have done likewise.

Best Wishes
