    Please choose who you think will be our first opponents in the season ahead. Would you please be so kind as to COPY & PASTE the list with your name alongside who you think we will have - and let's fill all the gaps please. Winner wins nothing at all except a pat on the back and a little pos...

    Clement Freud - another to add to the paedophile list?

    Stories this morning that Clement Freud abused two girls, one of whom lived with his family from the age of 14. His widow has "apologised", which suggests she accepts this as fact. Links also apparently being suggested to the McCanns as he owned a villa in the town where Madeleine went...

    1976 The HOT HOT Summer

    How many of us remember the Summer of 1976? 40 years passed in a blink of an eye. Sadly SUFC were relegated to Div 4. But James Simon Wallis Hunt became F1 World Champion. Barry Sheene became World Moto GP World Champion. I had my FS1E (NVW15P) to tear around town on,O levels done, it was a...

    Real life creepy stories

    So, last Friday night, driving back at 4am from Gatwick, and we had to slow right down, because there in the middle of the road, was two deer. Just looking in at us. Creeped us right out - we slowly moved past them - never seen them this far into town before - very odd. What's been your real...
