I used to play football every Saturday before I was picked to stand for Parliament. Saturday is an important day for campaigning so I haven't played for at least six months. However, I was able to organise my leafleting for early morning today and fill in for one of my friends who had a ticket for the Chelsea v Scunthorpe FA cup-tie. Up at Whitton Sports Centre, which was very busy today.
I love playing and it's a good crack with the other lads. I guess we are all grown men now! I was a bit concerned about my fitness but it transpired that pounding the streets has kept me reasonably fit and I was able to hold my own. Good stuff, but likely to be my last game for some time!
