Rate The Ref featured image

Our biggest gate of the season (so far). Will  it produce more votes on the Ken-meter than the 42 we got between the poll going live after Portsmouth and the site crashing? Some of those 42 may have been Portsmouth fans, judging by the range of ratings. It was the first time the full scale […]

Sixer’s Sevens: dodgy line call helps SAFC beat Bradford City

Jake

Pete Sixsmith, Santa duties over for another year, was among the bumper Boxing Day crowd of 46,039 for the important match against Bradford City.

Sixer’s Bradford Sevens: 10-man Sunderland hang on as promotion rivals lose

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Bradford City and Valley Parade

Salut Banner3(featured image)
