Wey aye

Meeting and greeting online is all fine and well, but sometimes you've just got to get real. Oxford was the location for a "Soxrates" bloggers' get-together on Saturday, organised by Lanterne Rouge and Lloyd of The Two Unfortunates. Naturally, pubs were involved, as was a real live game (Oxford City's 2-0 win over Weymouth on a classically sticky pitch - suitably so, given that the division's sponsors are Evostik...) and some televised football in the early evening too (but let's not dwell on that...).

It was a pleasure to meet a bunch of fellow online scribblers with a similar hunger for all things football-related (not to mention off-colour pints and dubious burgers), including those behind The Real FA Cup, Adventures In Tinpot and Put A Jumper On. AIT founder and Weymouth fan Kenny's superb write-up of the live football segment of the day can be found here, complete with references to Jimmy Saville and Aswad.

Here's to a rematch before too long.
