some supporters playing cards
money changing hands

by car,coach,van,and the train
football adventure

I’ve always loved going away to watch my team it’s an adventure.
I like going to a town or city I’ve never been before and having a walk about and having a drink with fellow supporters.Enjoyed going to Notts County on Saturday as their ground is by the river Trent and as we took nearly four thousand fans there the atmosphere was great.
Pity we played rubbish and got beat 3-0 but that’s football !
