July 28: There’s another big weekend at the club coming up; after Saturday’s crucial round of league games we have two games at the Park on Sunday. One is a friendly fixture against Aston , while, on the top pitch, it’s the annual Nick Simpson memorial match, remembering one of the club’s bright young stars who died far too young.
