I'll spare you too much of my rambling on about this one, because I used up most of my word limit for this week at the Worksop Town v Clipstone game last night.

If you look really closely, the former Leeds United player Peter Lorimer is sat a few seats along from me; not that I am one to namedrop, as I was only saying to Cheryl Baker out of Bucks Fizz, Freddie Trueman's cousin (twice removed) and that one from the Nolan Sisters with darker hair than the others, in Valerie Singleton's brothers pub earlier this evening.
While we're on the subject of Leeds United, I'm old enough to remember a time when all of their squad were instantly recognisable household names, I didn't have a clue who any of this lot were tonight.
It's a good job that I work part time as a rapid response escape driver and stunt man!
Oh well, nobody got hurt, that's the main thing.
Well, not until I get the estimate from the garage in the morning.
The road traffic policeman said that I had been very lucky under the circumstances. Yes mate, I must say it is times like this that make me wake up every ****ing morning and count my blessings!

When I eventually got back to Retford I found a football in my back garden, it look remarkably similar to the one that Chris Wood had lashed wildly over the Rovers bar in the penalty shoot out.
Top marks to both sets of fans for turning out on such a crap night and at least trying to generate a great atmosphere.
I heard told on the car radio before 'old unreliable' conked out on me, that there had been a giant killing at the Keepmoat tonight. With all due respect to Leeds United, they have got some way to go until they can be called giants again.
Though it must be said, the way that their fans got behind them tonight was Premier class.
Doncaster Rovers now face Ipswich Town at home in the next round, while their south Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield Wednesday who beat Mansfield Town Reserves on Tuesday night have a home tie against Oxford United.
