Strike Factory/ The Bun 1997 Style

26th April 2007

You all may be wandering why the hell has the site become The Bun. But fear not Strike Factory will be back in a few days in a bigger and better way. It is only a way of commerating the Goldstone for a few days to mark the tenth anniversary of Albion sadly leaving the Goldstone. I decided the way to do it was reverting to Strike Factorys predcessor from the mid 90's The Bun. Which was a comical newsletter done on the legendary BBC retro computers produced and printed for about 7 or 8 classmates at my old school in Burgess Hill. Though it was not a website, but have tried to get it as close to the old Bun newsletter as possible. Plus more fitting this entry has been done in Mid Sussex (albeit H.Heath not B.Hill). But doing this amazing to think it has gone from a small Burgess Hill class school letter to a large media website attracting about 200 a month from all over Sussex and even as far as Russia and Gambia.

By the way 10 years ago I was in Year 6 at my school which is now a Citizens Advice Bareau for the smart citizens of Burgess Hill I was then aged 11, for my sins I supported Liverpool. But I was starting to see the light with me watching the scores on BBC 1 of the Albion. I do recall the Albion staying up thankfully, though I then went through a bad bout of Chicken pox until the end of May that nearly saw me end up in the A and E of Crawley Hospital. But I survived and am now a 21 year old Sussex Student at Haywards Heath College. Amazing to think its now 10 years since that Storer goal and that I have gone from a boy to a man, seems quick.

Meanwhile will be at Lewes for the REMF game and will be visiting Anne of Cleves house in Lewes. If anyone wants to come.

St Georges Day message/ 23rd April 2007

Firstly happy St Georges day to everyone, to all English and non English, as we celebrate Englands national saint day. Will be having a big feast with neighbours to celebrate St Georges Day tonight, plus currently in my England Rugby Union top, was the day St George slayed a dragon and that William Shakespeare was born (though it may have been someone else that wrote all that fine English poetry and stuff).

Meanwhile I have managed to get a few essays out the way the last few days. Which has been a big relief. I went  REMF training at Hassocks on Friday, and despite my impressive goal beating Scott McCarthy I could not master the skills of Ticehurst Senior, who was immense thoughout the evening. Thanks to everyone looks like at least I have earned the right to attend the match as a spectator at least on Friday at Lewes FC.

Meanwhile me and my brother have decided to organise after being impressed by Brightons beach football facilities a Strike Factory Cup beach football match (to celebrate 2 years of this site plus me getting over the hard times), with me and my brother being captains. My team has to consist of Albion supporters, while my brothers team will consist of London Team followers. The match will be in late May to fit in with Strike Factorys launch date of late May 2005, the exact day and time will depend on players work commitments if you are intrested in coming and watching, and know more info on the beach football thing at Madiera Drive please let me know.

COMING SOON Strike Factory Cup

Brighton and Hove Allstars VS London Allstars

Where and time Madiera Drive, Brighton, Sussex late May time and exact date yet to be confirmed more details contact this site or Mr Charles Ball himself.

18th April 2007

Well I suscessfully managed my visits of Crawley, Brighton and Hove museums you may see the reports right now. Meanwhile I returned to college on Monday. I will be attending the REMF football training on Friday. To get into the team.

I have done some revision with this site a little there are now pictures of my museum adventures in the museum gallery section. Also the Profile section of Strike Factory has been adjusted with more info about the history and the origins of this site that go as far back as 1996 and Burgess Hill. Plus I hope you enjoy reading the visits on the museums, and feel free to post comments on the entrys.

Meanwhile still training sports wise. Focusing a lot on college at the mo, and currently researching infomation on private rent to see if its viable and suitable for me. After the recent blows trying the housing and council way of getting out of Crawley (though still not ruling the Sussex Oakleaf in Burgess just means I will have to wait until the end of the year if I wanted to go for it). Though researching and not rushing into anything, If anyone has any infomation on private rent the good and bad things please let me know. Just checking to see if its a possible alternative for me.

I can't believe it but I intended not to sign up to anymore sites such as beebo, or facebox after pressure from a few friends (one of which is a former flatmate and will be kept anonyous), I have gone further into the geeky world of the internet and signed up to Facebox NNNNNOOOOOOO!. But does not look a bad site to be fair feel free to add me once I get link when i have more time.
