Last Saturday’s Week

Okay, catching up a little with the blog.  Firstly, I’m planning to start writing regular features pretty soon, promise.

My feature on Born Offside will be a weekly column, recapping the biggest events in the lower leagues. So, if you want to know about the goings on at Bristol Rovers and Swindon Town (and let’s face it, why wouldn’t you?) you’ll be able to read my weekly column.

The first edition of The Lower League Week went up on August seventh
