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!

FA Cup 3rd Round Draw!

It's that time of year, lads - can you feel it in the air? The draw for the 3rd Round of the FA Cup was made this afternoon, and, as usual, it threw up some fascinating encounters. The headline is that Reading boss Jaap Stam will be returning home to Old Trafford to meet up with his old mates. I'm also pleased as punch by the away draw that has my beloved Leeds traveling to the Abbey Stadium to meet up with Cambridge United.

Hull City v Swansea City
Sunderland v Burnley
QPR v Blackburn Rovers

Sutton United vs the Real Dons and Barrow vs Rochdale sound like the ties of the round. I hope they are televised
