Sixer’s Travels: Scarborough fair as they squeeze past Workington

Sixer and Sobs

John McCormick writes – was England v Malta worth watching? I sat through it but I wasn’t impressed. I just can’t get enthused about the national team.

Bravo Lincoln, Ha’way Sutton, no sorrier for Burnley than for Leeds

Just a few of Jake's generic Salut! Sunderland images ...

OK, it’s just an excuse to revive an old classic from the pen of Pete Sixsmith, last heard of ‘having lunch in Easter Road prior to Edinburgh City vs Montrose at Meadowbank’ (completing his Groundhoppers’ Scottish set). But Monsieur Salut, while not disliking Burnley, is chuffed to bits by Lincoln’s win at Turf Moor  and […]
