Didn’t know Hazel O’Connor will be at the Godiva festival. Her late mother lived just a mile from where I live. Hazel is a proud Cov Kid and loves coming back home. So I’ll be there to watch her !

Supporting Cov City for decades and watching England too has made me cynical and negative. But keep it to yourself my club is on the way up, and secretly I like England giving youth a chance. And I’ve put an England flag up,the only one I can see flying at the moment on our street. So I am trying !
