Its official – Sprodlington now really supports England !

At this evenings Sprodlington Chamber of Commerce meeting, a motion to increase the town’s visible support for the England Football team was carried.

From tomorrow all shops in Sprodlington will display England Flags in their shop windows.
“Its great news for the England team and could possibly assist in the important match against Algeria on Friday.” said Alfie Barnett outside the meeting.

Even young Bin, the owner of Dionysus Kebabs said that he would purchase the England Flag and display it alongside his Greece Flag.

A present for Robert Green, England’s Goalkeeper

Now, I don’t pretend to know an awful lot about football, but we were expected to win yesterday’s game of “soccer” against the USA. Whilst Wade did suggest on Friday that the USA would turn up late and claim the victory; the generosity of a certain Robert Green in the England goal, meant that they nearly didn’t need to come at all (although technically they would have needed someone to have the shot on goal as Green may have stopped a back pass.)

Clearly Mr Green’s gloves were faulty and not working. First thing Monday morning I will be despatching to Mr Green, England Training Camp, Rustenburg, the following. They are the most sticky gloves I can find, and whilst I know a good workman should not blame his tools, I am sure Mr Green will consider wearing these as they are far stickier than his current selection.

Secondly, last night as I wandered home after work from Templetons Hardware, Sprodlington, I came to the opinion that the town is not supporting England as much as it could. Many of those in Sprodlington know that I am Chairperson of the local Chamber of Commerce. During AOB on Monday evening’s meeting I will be suggesting that every shop in the town puts an England Flag in their front window.
