Sports round up Sunday





Sheffield form the air! ( ok a big wheel)



Well I have managed to drag myself out of bed, cannot believe how tired I am. It must have been all the excitement of seeing his Royal Ryanness on TV on Friday evening.

Well lets get down to the nitty gritty,

Over in India, England are involved in a warm up match with India A, ahead of the ODI series.I cannot find team news or any up to date scores and it started at 3.30am UK time.However do not fear I will continue to look for info. Ashley Giles has taken charge of the one day team and hopefully this will show in the cricket content.

So lets move on to FA cup action, well what an afternoon of football it was, Twitter and Facebook were buzzing with comments.

The Mighty Whites were taking on Birmingham ( team of cuz Rt Hon Hooligan Robbo). The score was 1-1 with Birmingham looking to have lost another player, teenager Will Packwood suffered an horrific leg break in a collision with Leeds striker Luciano Becchio. ill is reported to have broken his fibula and tibia and will     ( obviously) be out for the rest of the season. Here at Tykes Towers we send big get well wishes. The gloss was taken off what had otherwise been a good game, especially as 'Hooligan' got through 90 minutes without been booked!

Down in Oxford, The Blades were in fighting  spirit, taking the match 3-0. It was 1-0 at half-time  thanks to Mc Mahon and then in the second half goals from Dave Kitson and then Nick Blackman 3 minutes from time brought the Blades into the next round draw ( which takes place today).

Sad news in F1, Japanese driver  Kamui Kobayashi, has failed to find a seat for the 2013 season. He had raised over £6.5 million  which had been made up partly  by donation by fans. He made the announcement before Christmas but said that he would save the money a he was sure that he would find a 'seat' for 2014.

Well back to all things mundane here at the 'Towers' the sun is shining (weakly) even though there was a very thin layer of frost this morning. I have piles more washing to do ( what the hokey pokey is that all about, there is only me living in this house!). Plus I am hopefully going to plant out some bulbs in the extensive grounds of Tykes Towers.

So with all this to do I bid you a happy Sunday.
