Beach football pitch

Get me a rocket lolly, will ya?

Beach football pitch
Get me a rocket lolly, will ya?

Experts claim February is the most depressing month of the year, at least for a certain sports surface outside Wigan town centre. But while there’s still a remote chance of greeting March as league leaders, the Robin Park beach will be eternally bathed in watery sunshine. I can already hear the chimes of Whelan brand ‘Flake a Leg’ ice cream vans making their way through Standish Lower Ground and Beech Hill…

Right, I’ll let you listen to us ramble about drainage while I retrieve my open-toed football boots and ice lolly mould from the attic. And I must remember to buy some factor 65 sun cream from the supermarket! Oooh, I wonder if they still publish those Beano and Dandy summer beach special editions…?

(Jeez, the first sign of daffodils and he gets all nostalgic about summer. He’ll have one heck of a shock when he steps outside and slips on the frosty pavement. — Ed.)

How to do the Highland Fling
How to do the Max Power celebration.

What do you mean, “what am I doing?”

Why, it’s the ‘leaf blower up the kilt’ Highland Fling celebration, of course! Max Power is the January Fans’ Player of the Month having presumably fixed the phone poll. I guess it’s like Eurovision, where votes can be bought from certain corruptible countries… except here, you just send them free packets of Uncle Joe’s.
