Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

It All Starts Here!

The Football League season starts today and I couldn't be more excited about it. Leeds start the season as a complete mystery package with Massimo Cellino having signed everyone but the tea lady in Serie A. We could potentially start at Millwall today with eight new players. Unfortunately, I'll be driving back to Fred-town via Alexandria during match-time, so I'll be relying on updates. Enjoy it if you're following it today.

Thanks for keeping the home fires burning on the LOB today - and for the text updates - UWS. It was a poor job by the Leeds boys today and a poor showing from me on the opening day of the season. I'll hope to do much better next weekend.
