    Default Broady's not the only local cricketer who loves us...

    What happens to Notts CCC’s cricketers when the summer wanes and winter reclaims the hallowed Trent Bridge outfield? Well, a couple of the squad’s local stars – Bulwell behemoth Luke Fletcher and Giltbrook-raised Samit Patel – often make the 1,742-pace journey from the dressing rooms (that’s right, they hibernate in there during the winter), along past the Trent Bridge Inn, over Radcliffe Road, down Pavilion Road, then right to the City Ground, their Mecca. I intercepted Fletcher and Patel along this Pilgrim’s Way and asked them about their love of Forest and the Notts lads’ footballing skills.

    Nice to see that from Patel, especially considering he was born in Leicester and was well within his rights to support the foxfuckers.

    Samit knows what's right, obviously!

    Imagine the grubby embarrassment of having to follow Leicester City!

    I know nothing about Cricket, but isn't Patel supposed to be one of the best English cricketers ever? If so, that's pretty cool that he follows us.

    If you substitute "tubbiest" for "best", then yes, you're perfectly correct.

    Best?! He's a great cricketer for Notts, that's about it though. Plus, he isn't fat, not really. He was a chunky bugger, but he's lost quite a bit of weight.

    His parent's own that shop near the station I think?
    They had a sign about Forest umbrellas in the window not long ago.
