The Binfield volunteers raising money for Cancer Research

A trio of Binfield volunteers are doing their bit to raise money for Cancer Research by taking part in a 100km walk from London to Brighton.

Caroline Reed, Denise Weait and Lisa Peters, who help run the car park and tea bar at Hill Farm Lane, will take part in the challenge on the 29th May and are hoping to raise £2,500.

The story on the trio’s JustGiving page says “Well, we decided after a few wines one evening (who us, who’d believe it??) to challenge our bodies and minds and take on an endurance challenge to walk 100 kilometres from London to Brighton over the weekend of 29/30th May 2021. As further incentive we want to raise as much money as we can for Cancer Research, as so many of us are affected by cancer, directly and indirectly, and one day we or a loved one could need their support and expertise.

“Please support us in our madcap endeavour and donate what you can. No amount is too small. We’ll post regular updates on our progress through training and the walk – and any locals if you see us around give us a toot!”

Binfield FC join social media boycott

It is a huge weekend for Binfield Football Club’s men’s first team who face a trip to Long Eaton United in the Quarter Finals of the Buildbase FA Vase – the furthest the club have ever gone in the competition.

The club will though join the social media boycott that is taking place across the football family and other sports over the Bank Holiday weekend.

A statement by the club said: “At Binfield FC, we believe that equality should always be emphasised in sport. As part of the Grassroots game and football community, the moles will be joining the 4-day boycott of social media platforms in an effort to tackle discrimination and abuse. We stand together.”

Moles supporters will still be able to stay up to date with what’s happening in Derbyshire however by joining the clubs new mailing list, and following the Live Blog that will be available on the homepage of this website.

Binfield march on in FA Vase

The Moles marched on with another FA Vase penalty shoot-out win on Saturday afternoon.

This time Binfield were away to Hadley of the Essex Senior League and were held to a goal-less draw in normal-time despite a late red card for the home side.

Goalkeeper Chris Grace was once again the hero in the shootout, saving Hadley’s sixth effort in sudden-death after Liam Gavin had scored for Binfield.

The Moles go on now to the Quarter Finals and a long trip to Long Eaton United.

How to watch Deal Town vs Binfield in the FA Vase

It’s deja vu for the Binfield who head down to Kent for the second season in succession to face Deal Town in the Buildbase FA Vase Third Round.

Last season, the Moles brought the 2000 winners back to Hill Farm Lane following a 1-1 draw in the Fourth Round, only for Binfield to go out on penalties after a 3-3 draw.

This season though, there will be no repeat of the brilliant away-day with the game being played behind closed doors. All is not lost however, Deal Town will be live-streaming the game on Facebook for free, but you need to join the match group beforehand which you can do here.
