Brian Caffarey - 6th March 2009

We?ve got another very readable matchday programme on Saturday. Some of the highlights are:

Page 2

David Taylor on the Club?s plight and keeping the faith: ?Thank you for continuing to keep the faith and for getting behind the team in their time of need. It really does make a difference and we need you more than ever now.?

Page 3

Phil Gilchrist on Tuesday night?s wash-out and his continuing search to strengthen the side: ?I?m continuing to look to see if I can strengthen the side but, at this stage of the season and in our situation, I need experienced players who can make an impact straightaway.?

Page 9

Phil Yelland sets out the Barrow stats and facts

Pages 12-13

David Holmes and John Moore observe (but not join in!) a training session: ? ?There?s real bullets in those guns, you know.? ? Not exactly the opening remark I expected on a visit to a Woking FC training session, but Neil Lyne was adamant. As was Phil Gilchrist when a couple of players, who?d been in Neil?s car with us, were a little sceptical.?

Pages 24-25

Lewis Hulatt profiles new signing, Micah Hyde [pictured], tracing his career from Brimsdown Rovers to Kingfield

Page 28

Greg Lewry brings us up to date on how other local sides are faring

Page 29

Neil Bennett continues his superb account of the eventful 1996-97 season, including recalling Justin Jackson: ?Jackson was the kid at school who smells faintly musty and kept pungent fish-paste sandwiches in a Tesco carrier bag; he would be gone by the autumn.?

Read on!

Rachel Formby continues her delightful KC?s motorway adventure

Page 40

Lewis Hulatt continues his amusing account of the development of football, looking at the increasing codification of the game in the Victorian era: ?The year before the ?Thunderer? came on the scene, double-handed throw-ins had been introduced and, looking back, it is easy to see how, with the need to identify the place of throw-ins with pinpoint accuracy, the ref would need to blow up much more frequently than before. Indeed, it is a fine tradition upheld to this day.?

And, of course, the rest of the programme is packed full with superb photos from David Holmes and all the usual reports and previews.
