Sussex Owls

Recommended Posts

My girlfriend's at uni in Brighton, 5 years in and as a work in progress she's coming along well, she checks up on scores and Wednesday news now for herself, without any suggestion from me. Next step shirt, then match.

And depeched, I know this is the wrong area for this, but where in Hitchin have you tried getting United games on? We always got Wednesday matches on pretty easily wherever we went.

There was a guy on the Littlehampton to Victoria train a couple of weeks ago reading the Green Un, and from glancing over, he spent a lot of time reading the Sheffield United page.

I heard the landlord was an owl. If there is a way to send personal messages on here we might be able to fix something up for a home or away game. Does anyone know how to? I normally go on owlsonline and I know you can send messages on there.

Even if 2 or 3 go its better than not going or going alone.

Sorry for putting my nose in but you are asking is there a way to send messages.

If you hover over the message senders name (on the left) you will see a small downward pointing arrow.

Click on this and you should a drop down menu, one of which is send message.

Have a go at that might get you group off the ground!

Im currently living in Worthing, but am from Brighton - there is a few Wednesdayites in Brighton, and we sometimes meet for the Sky games and have had the odd trip to games together.

Always up for seeing the boys when i can - if not playing myself or working of course!

JFYI: In Hitchin I usually go for the Bricklayers Arms, the Angel's Reply, and the George pubs.....with success from time to time.

Trouble is, there's too many Arsenal/West Ham/Chelsea/Spurs/Man Utd/Liverpool fans living in Hitchin, ergo no landlord has heard of *any* club in Sheffield - but it's a cross I have to bear.

Anyway, here's a song from Ahphrodite's Child (featuring Demis Roussos - before he was famous) It's entitled 'Such a funny night'........and it *is* a funny night when I can get a Blades match screened in a Hitchin pub. :-)

I've never seen a Wednesday shirt worn by anyone in Hitchin (in or out of a pub) but I've seen a Blades shirt worn by a female. And yes, I had a lengthy chat with her.

If you care to visit Hitchin market on a friday there's a woman who sells football shirts.

Aside from the usual England/Man Utd/Arsenal/Chelsea/Liverpool dross she also has more 'obscure' stuff.

I managed to pick up a Swiss NT shirt at a bargain £1 a couple of weeks ago.

I'm rarely in Hitchin these days but know of so many Wednesday fans there, all of whom religiously wear their shirts on saturdays in those pubs.

Moved to Sussex when I was 12 with my family. I've not been back to Hertfordshire in years.

Your not far from me. I am Upper Beeding.

Upper Beeding? Very nice.

I'll be down in the Worthing area for a few days. If I see anyone wearing an Owls shirt (or a Blades one of course) I'll say 'hello'

Good ol' Sussex by the sea...and here's a link to one of the most stirring 'marching band' tunes ever!

It comes with lyrics and assorted visuals depicting Sussex sporting activities.

Given decent weather I intend to visit Hove for some cricket, and possibly watch either Worthing United or Worthing.

Ya'll miss me, eh?

:-)
