    Joes day out in Blackpool:


    Blackpool away

    Alarm wakes me up at 07.00am 

    Jeff Williams picks me up at 07.30am

    Leave my home in Langold at 7.35 am and call at McDonalds on Penistone Road for breakfast - I had a bacon roll meal

    Help Jeff to open car park at 08.15am

    Coach arrives at 08.30am and all the passengers get on for the coach to depart at 09.00am

    On the coach I help Jeff with handing out quiz sheets

    I help with the bingo and I call the teams out on the microphone .I enjoy doing this

    I also Help Jeff with the Tuck shop 

    We arrive in Blackpool at about 11.30am

    We have a walk onto the seafront and it is warm so we have a walk on the beach

    We had a walk on one of the piers and lost some of Jeffs money on the slot machines


    We went to my favourite fish Restaurant for the best fish and chips in Blackpool

    Went into the stadium at about 1400hrs to watch the players warm up Jeff was doing his usuall talking to everybody he knows

    The game kicks off we start ok then, as usua,l we go a goal down and at half time we are losing but we missed at least 3 easy chances before half time

    Second half doesn't get any better and we don't create any chances and Blackpool get a 2nd goal game over

    It was a poor game

    The coach journey home was very quiet and everybody was saying D.J must go 

    Jeff took man of match votes and Connor Wickham won

    I helped Jeff lock car park up when we got back to Sheffield

    Called at K.F.C on way home to Langold

    Good day out but disappointing result



    Joe Howe aged 12
