The Rotherham result was a disappointing one, especially as I’m an ex-Titans player meaning it was harder for me to take.
But we did have a positive second half.
In the end it was the sin-binning of Tom Luke that cost us.
In this league you can’t afford to lose a man or you will be punished.
We’re focusing on the Cornish Pirates game this Saturday now – we need to start the match well and get points on the board early.
We’ve got a habit of only getting into our stride in the second half of games, but we lost the Rotherham match in the first period.
As a family man, I strongly feel that more kids should be attracted to our games.
The team have tried, and are continuing to, make ticket prices more affordable – this weekend’s family ticket deal, with family prices from £10, is a good start.
The atmosphere on match-days is good though – my lad Marley loves the bouncy castle and our mascot Donny the Knight.
As a squad we enjoy socialising together – although I’ve decided to give the other lads the chance to win ‘best moustache’ as I’d run away with the title if I was going to the Movember Ball!
It’s a shame I can’t attend but I am organising the club charity dinner in February in aid of Help for Heroes and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and we’ll also be handing out a player awards on the night.
We’re still looking for a business to sponsor the event and I can say it’s always great fun.
Last year’s sponsor even provided us with free vodka.
Off the field, I used to work in schools with disengaged kids, and I’d like to get back into community work if I get the chance.
A lot of time is taken up walking my boisterous dog, Betty – she had a bad time with the fireworks recently and was so scared she bit through her tongue.
I’ve also been planning my wedding to my fiancée Marie which proves a stressful hobby but one well worth doing.
And in honesty. I’d be lost without the help of my lad Marley.
