Let's forget about the four that I put over the crossbar earlier in the match. ("I was aiming for the top corner, Gary, but my left foot skidded on a patch of loose semi-colons.")

I couldn't quite believe it when they read my name out. I still can't quite believe it.

Thanks David for posting this and thanks for the congratulations.

Absolutely brilliant!

Deborah Swift said...

Oh well done Len. That is fab news, and well deserved - I loved "Herring in the Library."

Great news Len

The fact you've had four other targets just shows the quality of the writing. Some of us dream of just getting a chance to kick the ball than burying it in the back of the net! Congrats on getting this - it's deserved!
