My colleague Richard Hands who has been poorly for some while ventured out with me tonight to see the replay of the FA Trophy tie between Southport and Telford. Thanks to all of those -and there have been many of you-who have enquired after Richard's health. We could have chosen better for his first proper outing. Southport never really looked like scoring. There is a full report here. The one big talking point of the night was the red carding of a Telford player after a rolling brawl. The Southport player escaped with a yellow card-he was luckier than he deserved.
