Away Day Diary: Gosport Borough 0-2 Maidenhead United (07/09/13)

^^^ The sombrero wasn't soggy, unfortunately.

^^^ Macleod (M) longs to be treated like a queen.

^^^ Bar open! Anyone for a can of Cosmo?

^^^ V for Victory. Apt.

^^^ The Hard Interchange? Sounds painful.

^^^ Rekorderlig (Wild Berries flavour) on tap in the Ship Anson.

^^^ The ferry to Gosport.

^^^ Meet with the stragglers in the Castle Tavern. Yellow 'CAUTION' sign due to Macleod (M) upending an entire pint of Kronenbourg (not his).

^^^ In the ground. Yet more uncovered ends. Nicer than Whitehawk, though, IMO.

^^^ This lady steward (wife of the Chairman?) was very reasonable. Incidentally, I would be standing alongside her as the final whistle sounded.

^^^ Match action. I took this photo between a missed sitter from Michael 'Devon' Malcolm and Reece Tison-Lascaris scoring for the Magpies.

^^^ Second half.

^^^ Discussing hair care tips?

^^^ Known in the industry as a 'goal'.

^^^ A trainer - mine - on the pitch! Soon-to-be trainer out of the ground! Gosport keeper (NOT Mel Capleton despite allegations to the contrary) can certainly flick a trainer a long way with his foot.

^^^ I'm not usually one for sitting on the fence, but last Saturday was an exception.

^^^ Oops! My favourite pair of jeans as well. Safety pins previously holding together the Union flag would (eventually) come to the rescue.

^^^ Walk in the park.

^^^ Outside the Star.

^^^ Thumbs up.
