Bolton Players Boycott. So It’s Off to Chorley We Go – Beesotted AwayDay Podcast
Spread the love


Brentford’s game at Bolton was called off due to Wanderers players boycotting the match due to not being paid. The Beesotted crew made their way up to the North West regardless as they – as had a number of other Bees – had already made their travel arrangements. 

And the day panned out to be one of the most random away-days in a very very long time.

Starting off at Bolton’s stadium, the day moved onto the town of Chorley where the Beesotted crew met up with morris dancing crows. Drank in a bar in the middle of an outdoor market. Met up with Wigan. Man City. Blackburn and Bolton fans. There was a mini love-in with Bradford Park Avenue fans. Plus they took a tour of the local Chorley bars.

The Bee Job Question

The Bee Job Question

Three weeks ago I had a job interview. An interview for a job I was actually quite interested in, rather than just being a way out of the harrowingly dull, underachieving job I have at the moment. I have by me now the letter that arrived today, which will tell me...

The Great Brentford Song Scam

The Great Brentford Song Scam

For years Brentford fans have constantly been evolving the songs they employ to support their team. Scientists and historians, such as myself, rarely take an interest in such forms of tribal worship. But, after being approached by Beesotted to take a closer look at...
