Captain Kirk – week 23

There are two reasons I play football: firstly is for the enjoyment and secondly is for the winning feeling. That’s why this season has been so great for me because I have had loads of both. It’s been a fantastic season for the club, both on and off the field. On it – to gain promotion […]

Captain Kirk – week 22

The last few weeks have been a real struggle and a testing time for us. The results, for some reason, haven’t been happening and we are making promotion really tough. We have three games left, starting on Saturday, and we need to win them all, which will not be easy. We have not been playing […]

Captain Kirk – week 21

All good things must come to an end and our unbeaten run of 13 games, which has seen us get to a a cup final and get ourselves into a very healthy position for promotion, came to a halt last Saturday against a very good Washington side. It was one of those days were everybody […]

Captain Kirk – week 20

What a good result on Tuesday that was for us as we continued our great form with another win over one of the league’s in-form sides in Thornaby. We got over the line and won 2-1. It wasn’t a great performance by any means from us, but we showed grit and determination to scrap through […]

Captain Kirk – week 19

Since I last wrote this column things have been going brilliant at the club, especially with the results on the pitch. Although we have lost a few games to the bad weather we have put a great run together moving us into second place. We are now eight points off the leaders, North Shields, but […]

Captain Kirk – week 18

I’m looking forward to Saturday’s derby game with South Shields, a former club of mine but, to say the least, where by far I had my worst time in football. I hated my time there. As a team we are in a pretty confident mood on the back of a cup quarter-final win over Northallerton […]

Captain Kirk – week 17

The game against North Shields last weekend was a bit of a setback for us, losing 2-1. I think that result definitely rules us out of winning the league, something I said would be the outcome if that result happened in my column for the last issue of The Roofer. But with three promotion places […]

Captain Kirk – week 16

Happy new year, everyone! We have started 2014 in fine style beating Stokesley 6-3 last Saturday to follow up a well eared 3-0 win against Alnwick during the festive period where Apps scored a brilliant hat-trick to close 2013 in style. Last Saturday was a bit of a crazy game. I don’t know how the […]

Captain Kirk – week 15

On the eve of our trip to Tow Law we know three points against them puts us in a great league position going into Christmas. I’m writing this before that game due to printing deadlines for today’s issue of the Roofer. We currently sit in fifth position but with games in hand on the teams […]

Captain Kirk – week 14

Hi all! Since my last column, which came after a great midweek win against Chester-le-Street, I feel we have put in two very average performances. Last Saturday, against Willington, was, in my opinion, absolutely shocking. I don’t think one player could look at themselves and say they give their all and nobody could take any […]
