Programme from Notts County v Mansfield 14-8-15
A very slick looking programme in A5, handy for coat pocket size for this season, an improvement on the square effort of the last couple of seasons. The overall feel of quality gives it an edge despite some fairly standard content.

Game 13 of the season
An excellent victory for the Silkmen over high flying Woking in a highly entertaining game, followed by a drab game on TV in San Marino.
It was clear from the off that this would be a decent game, between two sides that wanted to try and play football. However, for all the nice football, the opening goal had a bit of the Sunday league about it, as Cole spilled the ball under pressure from Paul Lewis, and Kristian Dennis was in the right place once again to tap home a poachers goal after 14 minutes.
Game 12 of the season
Another very late decision to go this, my first FA Cup game of the season, usually this is the sort of game that ends up being a 0-0, so an 11 goal thriller was a nice surprise! I don’t want to type up a full match report even though this was one of the best games I have seen in a long time, because it would need about 2,000 words, so here is a summary.
1-0 (6 mins) / 2-0 (10 mins) / 3-0 (16 mins) The home side race into a three goal lead after just 16 minutes, and missed a couple of opportunities as well. It looks like the long journey for Westfields has taken a toll, along with the shorter warm up. We were already making agreements on which score we could go home at, I had gone for 6-0.
Programme from Witton v Northwich 31-8-15
The first in a new series of articles where I will review programmes from all levels of football from the 2015/16 season. Please also take a look at my match report from this game here.
A good, professional looking programme from Witton for your money this season, with a decent amount of articles written by fans and with comprehensive coverage about the away side
Game number 11 of the season
A late decision to go and get some bank holiday football in, mood boosted by an excellent 2-0 for the Silkmen away at Grimsby earlier in the day. This was the first salt town derby in a competitive game for 21 years and an enticing fixture between long-term rivals, and from this season, ground sharers. It certainly caught the imagination, with a healthy crowd of 710.
