Suspended former Notts cricketer Brendan Taylor was ‘let down’ by his national board | CBJTarget

A former Nottinghamshire batsman handed a suspension for a match-fixing plot was let down by his national association, a prominent Zimbabwean lawyer and cricket fan has claimed.

Brendan Taylor, 35, played for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club between 2015 and 2017.

But last week he was banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for three years for a corruption breach and an anti-doping violation over cocaine metabolites found in his system.

Now a Zimbabwean lawyer who works with the

Nottingham Boxing School hit hard by cost-of-living crisis | CBJTarget

The inspirational founder of the Nottingham School of Boxing says the cost-of-living crisis means some parents can no longer afford to send children to his classes.

And social justice campaigner Marcellus Baz has warned soaring energy bills and imminent council tax rises are draining his organisation’s resources.

On Thursday energy regulator Ofgem increased the average household bill by £693, while councils bills are also set to increase.

Now Marcellus has revealed the impact on his St Ann’s

Nottingham Carers Hub set up online sessions to help local carers | CBJTarget

A Nottingham social care worker is running an online webinar to help unpaid carers who have battled through the pandemic ‘without support’.

Rebecca Robbins, who works for the Nottinghamshire Carers Hub, says those looking after loved ones have often felt isolated due to Covid restrictions.

Mrs Robbins – who also cares for her blind husband – has planned two webinars later this month to support unpaid carers.

She said: “We run lots of different groups and give out loads of useful information t

Barnet FC vs Stockport County: A 'dismal' home defeat

Barnet FC were beaten 5-0 at home by Stockport County FC on a dismal Saturday at the Hive. It was a cold afternoon when the full-time whistle blew, bringing to an end the clear dominance and footballing brilliance from table-topping side Stockport.

Dave Challinor’s team recorded their ninth straight win on Saturday and did so in convincing fashion. The match was tense right from the off. The away fans, who were electric all game, seemed to transmit energy to the away side and this seemed to rat

Barnet FC showing signs of life under Brennan

It has been three months since Barnet sacked ex-manager, Harry Kewell.

The Bees endured a slow and miserable start to the season under Kewell. They looked bereft of direction and hope in those opening weeks and results showed as much.

However, there has been a significant shift in fortunes since Kewell’s September sacking and life under new manager, Dean Brennan, has proved to be much more enjoyable.

The ex-Crawley Town, Notts County and Oldham Athletic boss was appointed Barnet FC boss back

Barnet FC vs Altrincham: A last-minute equaliser

The first chance of the game came in the 11th minute – following an amazing defensive block from Sam Beard, my Man of the Match, in the Barnet penalty area.

The ball was then launched long, brought down by Adam Marriott and passed wide to Rob Hall, who cut inside and forced a good save from Altrincham keeper, Tony Thompson.

Hall, who recently signed a new contract at Barnet, was very exciting in the first half with some intricate touches and good linkup with right-back, Jordan Thomas.

After a

EXCLSUIVE: Ex-Arsenal defender Justin Hoyte talks Mikel Arteta, 2007 League Cup Final and THAT game against Cristiano Ronaldo. (Part Two) - Gunners Town

Onto the second part of this exclusive interview with former Arsenal defender, Justin Hoyte. If you missed the excellent part 1 it’s here.

As mentioned in Part One of this exclusive interview, at the very beginning of his career Justin Hoyte trained with the Arsenal first team of 2003. Training with the Invincibles at such a young age was of course a huge challenge and Hoyte admitted, “it was hard to bring out my own personality.”

One of the main things that Hoyte was blown away by during this

Spirited Bees knocked out of FA trophy

Barnet were knocked out of the FA Trophy on Saturday afternoon after an unlucky 3-2 loss to local rivals Boreham Wood.

Boreham Wood, who currently sit third in the National League, only had two substitutes on the bench and visited the Hive with a depleted squad.

The Bees opened the scoring in the ninth minute when winger, Rob Hall, found space on the edge of the Boreham Wood penalty area and his deflected half-volley found the back of the net.

However, the Wood equalised five minutes later th

Why Arsenal's loss to Liverpool isn't the end of the world.

Since the 2017/18 season, Arsenal have conceded 19 goals in 5 trips at Anfield, conceding an average 3.8 goals per game during this time.

Arsenal have not beaten Liverpool at Anfield since the 2012/13 season, in a game where new signings, Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla, scored their first goals for the Gunners and a game where Abou Diaby dominated the midfield.

In the 9 years since that game, it is fair to say, Anfield has not been pleasant to the boys from North London.

Nevertheless, despi

What To Expect From the 2021/22 Premier League Season

Another edition of the Terzino Talk football blog. Apologies for the long, long break. Since I’ve been gone a lot has occurred in the football world.

We have had a breath-taking Euro 2020 Tournament where Italy defeated England in a dramatic penalty shootout. We witnessed an eventful Olympic football competition where Brazil won the gold medal, defeating Spain in the final with an extra-time winner. In addition to this, we have seen a memor
