Free advertising?
Recently working at a conference in Blackpool I tried to do my bit of public relations for our club based on the premise that whoever I meet professionally needs to know about Dagenham and Redbridge. I have a biography that is sent to the organisers of these conferences at the end of which (after the work stuff) I state I spend my spare time “contemplating whether Dagenham and Redbridge will ever get into the Conference Play Offs (or even win the thing!) and gain promotion to Division 2”.

I spoke to the chair beforehand and he amended this to “likely to get promotion – just 8 points away” (this was a few weeks ago) when he introduced me to the audience. So there are now 300 university admissions tutors who know who Dagenham and Redbridge are and where we are going next season. By the looks of their faces I’m not sure just how impressed they were with learning this fact but I like to think maybe 1 or 2 of them will spot us on Final Score on Saturdays.

Incidentally for those that have applied to or are at Uni (and I know there are several Daggers fans amongst this group) you may be interested to know that the chief exec of UCAS, also at this conference, is a Watford fan. We had a joke at his expense about that!

And to my point...
Anyway to the point: rather like Ebenezer I like to travel independently to away games to allow the opportunity to have a look around the town/city and surrounding area. This has resulted in some very pleasurable days out over the years. Maybe the best was Gloucester – glorious weather, lovely lunch in the cathedral cloisters and then a dramatic trophy semi final game. Or Exeter in the FA Cup a few years back, when I was able to see Exeter rugby also and suffer a bizarre and convoluted journey back, mostly in a cab from Bristol!

I liked walking through and around such places as Kettering (wherefore art thou Big Ron?), Stafford, Norwich and Peterborough amongst many others. Who can ever forget visiting Lincoln, the first time I had seen my side beat league opposition (courtesy the Janney Rocket)? There have also been some bizarre ones like Horwich RMI (via Wigan and a taxi), trying to find the ground at Royston and some good cycles to matches at Halstead, Thurrock ,Stevenage (a freezing cold January day when Barry Hayles took us apart) and St Albans.

Virgin trips

This of course has got me looking at next years potential ‘virgin’ trips. Some promising ones include Bradford (who I watched in the late 1970’s when I lived in Yorkshire), Nottingham, Chester and maybe Lincoln once again. The grounds at Rochdale and Darlo sound worth experiencing. And we have some interesting local derbies (Barnet and Butcher’s Brentford) – shame Orient look to have escaped a visit from our merry throng.

Some not so promising ones may be the long trips to Bury, Grimsby (has anyone ever been there?), Accrington and Rotherham especially if these are on a cold Tuesday night in mid winter!

Sadly they won’t include Bristol who are likely to be playing at Swindon or Cheltenham, if they are not promoted. Although there’s a very outside chance we could end up at Cheltenham twice.

Exciting times. I’m looking forward to adding some more ‘new’ grounds to my roster.

As for Blackpool, well, it’s pretty grim on a chill, misty spring day I can tell you. Good job they are in another division then!
