The sports blog written for sports fans by sports stars


After our defeat against Toulouse we bounced back a week later in the derby match drawing it 9-9. I came off the bench for the last 12 minutes, the atmosphere was electric 15,500 people in the stadium the match was so close. The build-up to the derby is something special in the town, there is […]


Welcome to my first blog. I have just played a match away to Montauban in the South of France. Montauban is the closest game to Brive geographically, however this is not the local derby – that is played against Clermont-Ferrand who we played three weeks ago, resulting in a draw. Yesterday’s game against Montauban was […]

David Wigley: Missing Out Again

Well, I’ve missed out on the Championship game against Middlesex this week. Purely a form issue I think, and I agree – to a point! I had a belting first 3 months, picking up wickets regularly before the ridiculous structure of County Cricket meant that I then played only a handful of days’ cricket in […]

Bobby White: Hungary Calling

While I was in France I received a call from A1 Bregenz Youth Academy Manager asking if I would like to accompany him in Hungary as he was one coach short for the trip. Three of the Bregenz youth teams were travelling to Veszprem for the Cell Cup Handball Festival. Having not been selected for […]

Will Sharman: Harder To Please

I’ve not long got back to my hotel room after running at the prestigious Zurich Golden League meeting, which prides itself on replicating the World Championship final. I finished 6th out of 9 in a competitive field and my time was 13.37. (0.2) I thought that I should have run faster had I not made […]

David Wigley: Passing The Time

I often get asked how I fill my time when we are batting or when it’s raining and cricketers have nothing to do! I have several methods of procrastination and they often get ticked off in a certain order. Firstly, I always attempt The Times crossword. Before I impress you too much I must highlight […]

Lawrie Dudfield: It’s the right decision at the right time

After leaving Corby Town on the eve of the season, which I can’t really say too much about for legal reasons, I found myself staring at the prospect of life after football. To be honest though, it wasn’t a difficult to decision to make, as soon as things went the way the did I knew […]

Bobby White : The Hard Work Has Started

August was a very tough period for me both with Bregenz and with Great Britain, travelling for camps and tournaments in Germany, France and Hungary. Making an appearance for A1 Bregenz in a pre-season tournament in Germany was a real taste of top flight Handball, although there were bigger matches to come the week after, […]

Wayne Allison: I’m Still Alive And Still Looking For Work

It’s been a while since my last update and since then I have completed and passed the UEFA Pro Licence and have been applying for jobs as and when they’ve come up but with no success!! I have also spent most of the last few months at University as I get close to finishing my […]

David Wigley: Still On For Promotion But It’s Tighter Than Ever

A Bank Holiday weekend! We have a televised Pro40 match televised on Monday against Warwickshire that I’m not playing in. I might go and watch a bit, or if its cold, I might just flick between it and what is bound to be a ‘Bankers Bank Holiday Bonanza’ edition of Deal or No Deal in […]
