To celebrate the momentous achievement of my 100th post, I’ve decided to highlight some of the best moments during the first 99 posts so far.
Travelling Fan gets noticed:
After I went to see Yeovil Town take on Belgian amateur side RRFC Montengée in the South-West Challenge Cup in 2009, the last thing I expected to find was that my match report ended up on a Fan Website, but enter Yeovil Town’s Ciderspace where I received a mention! (Snap below)

Even better than that was after purchasing the great football book, ‘Village Voice’ from Ian Cusack. My trip to Percy Main earlier this year was given a full mention and write up! All the proceeds from the book are going towards fixing the roof at Percy Main’s Purvis Park, and it only costs £10 – so e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details and how to pay! Its a cracking read (from what I’ve read so far. And FYI, I’m on pg 154 *wink*)
My first ‘proper’ non-league game and what an absolute belter it was. Salford City with only 1 win all season go to play-off chasing Lancaster, so a foregone conclusion? No – an utter bloodbath played on a bog. Brilliant.
Honourable mentions to Bamber Bridge and Morecambe (Christie Park) but Tiverton’s Ladysmead was an absolute cracking surprise. Four great stands and a lush pitch. Friendly people and a good clubhouse too. Top stuff.
So there’s just a small insight into what the Travelling Fan has been seeing since I started back in February 2009. Here’s to another 100 posts!
