Friends in high places

I spent most of last week at Cheltenham enjoying my annual trip to the Festival.

One of the most memorable moments was to meet up with Wealdstone fan Rob Nothman and watch the first race on Thursday from the BBC Radio commentary box 5 floors up and the best view on the course. I had a good chat as well with Five 5 live commentator John Hunt, who lives in Bushey.

As I was talking to Rob, John walked out onto the balcony and shouted out “WEALDSTONE” which was very funny. Watching him give the commentary on the first race was seeing a master in action. We will have to get him to a game sometime soon.

Rob will be hosting Gordon Bartlett’s dinner on 21 April and I look forward to seeing him there.

Now no longer with my Wealdstone FC obligations so freed up to enjoy more horse racing. Aiming to blog daily on something that catches my eye, maybe the big race that day, maybe racing news, maybe something else. Please join the conversations
