About 32 miles north east of Tampa is where I’m heading smack bang in the middle of today’s FA Cup tie against AFC Wimbledon. With work, how inconsiderate.
I have to be there for Monday morning which meant travelling today. Bermuda to Miami to Tampa and the 32 mile drive. I am heading to quite a cool place though. The Saddlebrook Resort is a golf and tennis mecca with 45 tennis courts, two 18-hole golf courses, as well as a 16-acre golf training academy and a 7,000 sq ft spa. Shame I’m there for work, but I might be able to sneak in a bit of recreation, hopefully a tennis lesson at the very least.
As for Wesley Chapel, it is one of Florida’s many fast growing communities with lots of new houses and family infrastructures such as shopping malls, cinema’s, parks and restaurants.
Meanwhile the Addicks go to Kingsmeadow with a long list of injuries, the latest being the big German fella Patrick Bauer, so expect very much of a B team with KAG, Djiksteel, Sarr, Aribo and Best all to feature. Charlton long sold out their 675 tickets. Robinson is sure to get another cold welcome but while the league is everything, being a bit old fashioned I’d love to see us in the 3rd Round draw.
