Brakes to face Badgers
Leamington will face Retford Town at home in the 5th round of the FA Vase in what may be an all ticket fixture, the Badgers having a bigger away following than Quins. Certainly will need to be if '1,500 people squeeze into the New Windmill' as the BBC put it.
BBC radio coverage of the goals from Saturday's tie and a long interview with Brakes supremo Jason Cadden here: Brakes
I started supporting Charlton in 1953 when my father took me to a game (my mother came sometimes as well). My father was born in North Woolwich in 1908 and
had been a Charlton supporter since the 1920s when an older cousin took him. He raised the admission fee by looking after horses while deliveries were made. I now live in Leamington in Warwickshire, but remain a season ticket holder, as was my late wife. Visitors to my CAP blog may be confused by this but, as well as being a Charlton supporter, I am expert on the CAP and the political economy of the food chain. I am also a frequent commentator for UK and international print and broadcast media and wire services on British politics, hence my new blog on the subject.
