Titus Bramble Championship GW5: The Draft Who Loved Me

Remember Draft? Remember how good life was before the fun-vacuum of the international break rolled in and fucked everything up? It often seems incomprehensible that we ever felt happy, that we ever woke up on a Saturday with a heart full of hope, a Skybet account full of cash, and stomach ready to be full of lager. Lo, Christian soldiers rejoice! Cry Hallelujah for Draft … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW5: The Draft Who Loved Me

Pressure mounts on the Government to admit football crowds

The #LetFansIn campaign has gained considerable traction in the past 48 hours with a slew of high-profile clubs throwing their weight behind the cause. With clubs from the UK’s seventh tier of football and below having successfully welcomed fans back to their grounds (with social distancing measures in place) teams higher up the pyramid are putting their weight behind the #LetFansIn campaign. Just this week … Continue reading Pressure mounts on the Government to admit football crowds

It’s (almost) come home

Ring the bells, dance in the street and rejoice. Non league football is admitting fans – albeit at reduced numbers and with social distancing measures in place. In one small way football has come home. The incumbent Tory government has got football very wrong, very often. Since the Covid pandemic kicked off we have had; Matt Hancock, the world’s smarmiest prick (Undercurrent Awards 2020) scapegoating … Continue reading It’s (almost) come home

Titus Bramble Championship GW4: Draft, by M Night Shyamalan

Sunrise, sunset. All good things must come to an end and nothing gold can stay. Luckily draft is neither good nor gold so it is back for another Gameweek packed full of intrigue, outrage and arguing over assist accreditation. Before we cast eyes forward to our gloomy horizons we must cover what happened in GW3, or as the papers will have it, the week that … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW4: Draft, by M Night Shyamalan

Sussex Football Roundup Saturday 26 September

Over the weekend many of Sussex’s non league teams held their first Covid-secure league games, and it would seem successfully so. Club staff and hardy volunteers all did their bit to ensure that games went ahead in Whitehawk, Lewes, Eastbourne, Peacehaven, Burgess Hill, Horsham, and Littlehampton but to name a few, and for this they deserve enormous credit. Undercurrent was at Lewes v Brightlingsea for … Continue reading Sussex Football Roundup Saturday 26 September

Titus Bramble Championship GW3: He who drafts last, drafts longest

Gameweek 2 was the perfect reflection of our current lives – chaotic, bloated and largely miserable. In amongst the rubble of our former lives three entire days of football took place and with them came an absolute shedload of goals. In what quickly became the Battle For The Bale, Sporting C.S.B trounced Karius Fan Club and set an early contender for “Largest points haul of … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW3: He who drafts last, drafts longest

Titus Bramble Championship GW1: Return of the Draft

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Draft, the Beginning and the End.” – Titus Bramble Draft. Draft never changes. Much as the sea returns to source and the night shall have its dawn, draft, draft never changes. It is inevitable, it is indefatigable, it is a constant reminder of our fleeting existence, the grand totality of life itself and the … Continue reading Titus Bramble Championship GW1: Return of the Draft

Lewes FC: Coming Home

My love affair with Lewes FC began the season after they were really very good, a period which I still doubt the actuality of to this day. Having spent the majority of my years as an armchair Premier League fan I was very much taken in by non league when I realised I could watch actual live football  in a proper stadium (loose term) on … Continue reading Lewes FC: Coming Home

Lewes FC: Let there be light

Sean Paul once said “Just gimme da light” and now Lewes Football Club are asking the same as the club turns to the community for much-needed stadium improvements. Whilst Sean Paul may or may not have been talking about the plight of a Sussex non league football team in his seminal 2002 hit, his words ring true nonetheless. The Coronavirus pandemic has had ruinous effect … Continue reading Lewes FC: Let there be light

Saturday down The Pan

A non league love affair of rainy days, shit lager and even worse football. It’s 13:30 on a Saturday. You stare down at a half-eaten sandwich, the one you thought would sort you out but hasn’t. It sits as a monument to your depravity on the sofa next to you, tucked neatly between the paracetamol and the water. It is rapidly going stale, much like … Continue reading Saturday down The Pan

When Whitehawk went to Guernsey

Written by Josh Boyd All images (Including header) by Tom Barlow Brown: Instagram: @Tom_BBrown // Web: TomBarlowBrown.com About 20 minutes after a triumphant viewing-deck-pint on a ferry heading south from England, two of our group were head-in-hands sea sick. The boat, now in the English Channel proper, rocked from side to side, the horizon dipping above and below the giant windows. Spread out amongst rows … Continue reading When Whitehawk went to Guernsey
