Lewes FC was on the BBC South East news this evening (my little lad was on it playing footie) and halfway through we got Brass Eye and what looked like Monty Python!

Anyone else see that or was it just on my telly?

I've just found it and its here

The piece starts at around 17:10 mins in

We were there for the game last Saturday and even though it ended 0-0 it was a couple of hours very well spent and we're going again this Saturday for the Dover match.

I think they were referring to one of the owners being an actor/writer/playwrite and were showing his work with those two clips.
I stand to be corrected but that's how i saw it.
Was that you doing the keepy-uppies Webbo ?

Must have been about club trustee (is that right?) Patrick Marber - he was in the The Day Today etc. Saw him watching the 2-1 victory against Thurrock last Weds with Neil Pearson off of Drop The Dead Donkey, who was smoking a massive cigar. It's all happening down the Pan folks.

Mark Strong (Kick Ass, Sherlock Holmes, Body of Lies) was down there on Saturday too

Patrick Marber and a few others are not new owners but kind of "temporary directors" who are overseeing the change of ownership from Martin Elliot & Co. to Community Ownership. They seem a great bunch of blokes, keen and approachable, who are not on ego trips and simply chucking a heap of money in to the club, but are trying to secure a sustainable future for it which does not rely on large cash injections from individuals. When it is all set up they hope to be able to relinquish their positions to elected officials.
I hope it all works out. I have doubts that Lewes is a big enough town with enough interested parties and supporters for it to work fully, but time will tell. It is certainly exciting times again though.

There have been several articles in the broadsheets lately too. This one is quite good

Must admit, I thought the gesture of giving the home and away shirt sponsorship to charity, given how small the club's budget is, was utterly brilliant. I'll be there a fair bit this season.
Rookie - doesn't the writer of that piece, Paul Hayward, live in Lewes too?

Cannot get my eldest interested in football thus far , he is only five but it still seems wrong to me .

Newmania - my lad wasn't even vaguely interested in football, even after I'd taken him to games. Then suddenly, when he went back to school in the September after he was 8, it became his entire life. Plays every day in breaks, after lunch, after school, at weekends. If he's not playing, he's playing FIFA10 or reading Match or FourFourTwo.
Weird how it happens.

D & O.....I have no idea where Paul Hayward lives. I have to confess to having to Google Patrick Marber to find out who he was when his name cropped up.
