Paris-Brest-Paris Race 1st qualifier – Completed! by Glyn Marston

Sunday 29th of March – Vale of Belvoir audax 2011k ride.

I set off from the start in Lichfield and headed off towards fradley. It was a windy day and had started to rain. The early stages of the ride was pleasant despite the weather and the scenery was really amazing. Everything was going well until I tried to reach the first check Point. I rode left at the last junction instead of right, when I realised my error, I had to speed on to make the check Point before it closed. This made the next 40 miles more of a catching up with lost time excerise than a steady paced ride. When I reached the halfway point, I reached the check Point a few minutes ahead of my planned schedule, and after a quick bite to eat and a hot drink, I was off towards Loughborough. By now the rain was torrential and was to be that way for many miles, the open fields of the surrounding countryside offered no shelter from the battering I was getting from mother nature. I eventually got to Loughborough barely an hour ahead of plan. From Loughborough I was heading for Lichfield and the finish, the hills out of Loughborough were gruelling, we had many hills along the way but now these hills felt steeper (unless I was getting more tired). The last 30 miles seemed to drag out longer than expected, my pace had dropped and so had my enthusiasm, eventually the dark of the night had swept over me and visibility was low but this helped in a way as I wanted to get home as quickly as possible and so my speed began to pick up again. I reached the finish in Lichfield at 8.25 pm, that’s almost 12 and a half hours of riding, but my first qualifier in the bag.

Just had my information for my next qualifying event in Essex, a 305km ride that starts at midnight and finishes at around 8pm on the 11th of April. This will be the second of four qualifying events for the pbp challenge in France.

Willenhall Town Football Club awarded the FA Charter Standard

Announcement made by WTFC Offical

Breaking News!
Willenhall Town Football Club is delighted to be able to confirm this evening that it has been awarded the FA Charter Standard, confirmed formally late this afternoon by Birmingham County FA.
The Charter Standard Programme looks to provide recognition to those clubs who:

Demonstrate good practice
Adhere to FA policies and procedures
Commit to Raising Standards

We will shortly receive our Award Pack, Certification, Plaque, Logo etc, but BCFA kindly shared with us late this afternoon that Willenhall Town Football Club have indeed been awarded the Charter Standard and can formally let everyone know – The Club has now been added to the list of those clubs who hold the award.

In time we aspire to progress through the different levels of the programme but this is for the Club and all those people now associated with the Club both on and off the pitch, managing and playing that we have turned a corner and begin to develop the Club beyond what it is and has been.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed their views, opinions and time to achieving this Award, but in the main and with all due respect the Club is grateful to its Treasurer and Charter Standard Officer, Sharon Hall for her work in pulling everything together and in record time.

Congratulations to the players winning individual trophies including Eddie Willson (Manager’s Player), Paul Holden (Most Starts), Tony Clift (Clubman), Matt Dorgan (Supporters Player), Jamel Fuller (Players Player) and Jake Morgan (Top Goal Scorer) and of course to Matt Dorgan for Outstanding Contribution & 100 Matches.

Thanks to all our advertisers, sponsors and pitchside advertisers including Mark Wright at Bloxwich Environmental Services, Louise Roberts at Avon, Maggie Palmer at Triple M Dance Academy and Aspray24, Imperial Locks, Croft Architectural, Auction House, Dynatech and Willenhall Rotary Club and The Extracare Charitable Trust.
This season we have consolidated our Club, we are stronger than possibly in the last decade and now have a vision of the future, rather than the past.
We have new volunteers joining us next season in the form of Tracey Clift, & Liam Ruby and a number of others in the pipeline and we also thank Ian Wale and Hughie Moran, Chris Burton and Steve Bagby.
We also welcome Commercial Manager John Luxton who is forming part of our new management structure at Board level and also welcome Russell Eynon at Emco for his swift and excellent work on our IT and Social Media provision.
We celebrate a dramatic improvement in our disciplinary record and that we are beginning to reconnect with the people of Willenhall slowly but surely.
All in all a cracking night, Maggie, Georgie and the girls at Triple M added a really different and fun element to the night with their showcase of Charleston, Burlesque, and Can-Can and it went down REALLY well, we also had Willenhall’s Carnival Queen Natalie Slaney who assisted with presentations.
Thanks as ever to Kalie Kaur at Willenhallaywe.co.uk for her continued support and photography work and for her sneeky work with Lisa Ruby and the beautiful picture presented to us.
I could go on all day really (how annoying) but you all know who you are and you all know what you do player, captain, manager, volunteer, sponsor, advertiser- we are hugely appreciative of your commitment to us and we look to the future with excitement.
Thanks all.”
