One thing that I have not admitted to whilst writing this blog is that deep down I have always hoped that this road would, at least once, lead me to the coast.
So following today's draw for the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup you could say that I am fairly chuffed with the outcome:
Eastbourne Borough v Bromley
Eastbourne Borough play in the same league as Bromley (Blue Square South) and in fact only met nine days ago when Eastbourne Borough won 3-1 in front 761 fans. I don't know a great deal about the club, other than they are not to be confused with Eastbourne Town who play in the Ryman League South. I will do some digging...
And talking of digging, I need to go and look for my bucket and spade. And my knotted hanky.
Foot note: thanks to everyone who has written to me asking after my wife following her volleyball accident which resulted in sprained ligaments in her right foot. I'm pleased to report that her foot is a lot better, the crutches have been dispensed with and she is well on the way to a full recovery!
