    Minority sports

    I am thinking of taking the family to watch the Chelmsford Chieftains ice hockey team. £20 for a family of four seems like a bargain. Has anyone here been to a match or is into other minority sports?

    All very good penalties from our boys (apart from Cokes, who I forgive after his brilliant last ditch tackle in extra time) Sudden death, Barratt, then Weston, then Bolger all smacking them in - poor old Chief Wiggum's face

    Adam Thompson

    May yet turn out to be the best of Brown's signings from last season and that's not something I ever expected to be typing. I must admit I didn't rate him as any more than squad filler last season and the thought of him being first choice centre-half this year filled me with trepidation. But...
