The Novice Groundhopper? What’s all this about?

I have slowly over the last few years become disillusioned with top flight English football. I’ll spare you the details, but I am pretty sure that they have been recounted by many other football supporters over the last decade or so.

I have been an Arsenal fan for many years and found travelling to new grounds an exciting part of the match day experience.

I spoke with some groundhoppers, started following some on Twitter and started to get interested in their tales.

At the start of the 2011 / 2012 season I decided to attend a Game in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup and shortly afterwards I was hooked.

You’ll probably never catch me going to 4 games a week, my other commitments see to that, but when I can I’ll try to blog about my experiences.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Just to advise you that the Coleshill Town v Pilkington XXX game has had to be moved to the Monday night (30th) at short notice. Found out this afternoon from our club secretary at The Pilks.

      • Yes, our next home game is in the league on Weds 8th v Racing Club Warwick, then home to Atherstone in the FA cup extra prelim round on Sat 11th. We also have a pre season fixture Thursday coming up against Travellers at Northfield Town’s ground, 7pm kick off.
