So this week my guide dog Echo and I have spent a bit of time in Bath collecting for Guide dogs and it has been very successful, with people giving generously. Whilst on the subject of Guide Dogs have you ever thought of giving up a bit of time to support a charity? We have a fund raising group in Bath and we are always looking for more volunteers to help raise money for such a wonderful charity that changes lives with a gift of a dog to visually impaired people. If you are interested in helping then please contact the Community Fundraiser
Tracey.Wellingham@guidedogs.org.uk or call her on 07468711990.
So on to my usual Saturday I am back at West Clewes where Welton Rovers were entertaining Calne Town who are currently at the top of the Toolstation league, which under the great scheme of things means nothing. I was slightly late but I didn't miss the first goal which went to Welton Rovers after Calne Town made a mistake and gave the ball away on the edge of their penalty area and this is how it stayed until the second half. Calne Town were awarded a penalty which was well deserved and they scored and made the score level. Welton Rovers had a goal waived away by the assistant ref who claimed that the ball did not go over the line and as there wasn't a lot of appealing in his mind he was right. Things started to get a bit more aggressive by Calne town with several yellow cards and a well deserved Red followed so Calne went down to ten men with 15 minutes to go. Welton Rovers started to pressure the Calne goal until they decided to make some substitutions and then Calne seemed to take back control and kept Welton Rovers in their area where they couldn't do much damage. Then after a free kick was awarded to Calne they scored the winner. Calne Town didn't deserve the three points that they took from the game but Welton Rovers are there own worst enemies sometimes.
