IF readers' Premiership favourites, or maybe the Posh or the U's, haven't got a home fixture on a Saturday afternoon or during the week, they could do much worse than become, at the very least, a casual visitor to Jubilee Park, the home of Huntingdon Town Football Club.
It is not difficult to see why manager Darren Young received the November manager of the month award. He is a very shrewd tactician, exudes confidence and encourages his very useful squad of players to play football in an attractive manner whenever possible.
It is also worth almost 75p of the admission fee to hear some of his one-liners shooting out to players, opposing managers (not, of course, the officials at any time) and supporters alike.
Town currently proudly sit second in the league table, but with a bit more vocal support from the touchline we could make this our promotion year, joining our local rivals St Ives and St Neots Town in the Premier Division.
Under the ambitious guidance of chairman Hans Reif and coupled with the excellent location and facilities available at Jubilee Park, I'm sure Huntingdon Town can only go from strength to strength at both senior and junior levels.
I'm happy to say that many of our local clubs are thriving, with St Neots Town third in the league and once again progressing well in various cups, taking Ridgeons Premier League scalps on their way.

Ramsey Town is in very good shape this season, not forgetting the great job one of Huntingdon's favourite sons, John Scarborough, is doing restoring the former glory days to Warboys Town.
When you have the opportunity, go out and support one of your local teams. You just might be surprised by the quality of some of the football and the warmth of the welcome you will receive.
May I also offer the Warren Hay Safety Action Group all my best wishes in the relentless pursuit in obtaining a safe crossing point on the A141. Why is it that the residential developers in our vicinity seem to have endless funds to construct mini-roundabouts at will, with seemingly no objections from the planning department, and more often than not catering for the needs of only a relatively small development?
With this in mind, wouldn't it be a lovely gesture if they could put something back into our community by making some very generous donations towards the cost of completing a safe and suitable means of crossing the A141?
