Hi every one just to let you all know once the cheque has been donated to Kettering Town F.C on the 21st May 2016 the Richard Butcher Memorial Trust will then close but I will continue to support the fantastic projects in Richards Memory from Macclesfield Town F.C and Kettering Town F.C.

I will also continue to sort the portrait out at Northampton Town F.C and Lincoln City F.C but these things do take time to sort out so bare with me.

I will also continue my face book pages and my website in memory of Richard this will be changed to in memory of Richard Butcher instead of Richard Butcher memorial trust.

There has been a lot to sort out and to deal with but my book : Butch The wings of football will also continue to be available with the hope it will help a lot of young footballers in the future.

The Old Black Lion

As you come into Northampton from the train station you climb a hill that takes its name from a pub that stands to the right of St Peters church. The Old Black Lion is an ancient alehouse that is first listed in the 1700s. At the coming of the railway it briefly changed its name to the Railway Tavern and gave shelter to workers building the nearby rail line. The name change was brief and soon reverted to the Lion. Over the years rumors grew of tunnels leading to the Castle and to St Peters. In fact this is what sparked me into investigating the pub in the first place. The atmosphere is, as with all pubs of a certain age, interesting. Generations of people passing through have left stories of strange happenings. Here is a list of a few things reported over the years.

Bedclothes being pulled off unsuspecting guests as they lay sleeping.

Voices and footsteps heard along corridors that look deserted.

Unseen dogs barking and scratching.

Phantom figures seen walking across the bar and glasses being thrown and smashed.

But the most active place within the pub walls is far below the revelers enjoying a drink in the bar. Go down into the cellar. There you will find another door, beyond which you will find stairs leading down into a dark and foreboding room with a vaulted roof and red brick floor. Now stand in the middle of the room switch off your torch and have someone shut the door at the top of the stairs, see how long you last alone.

People think this cavernous room was part of a tunnel that once ran beneath the pub.

MACCLESFIELD TOWN PLAYERS Rose Draper , Ben Tomlinson and Sam Wedgbury might all look a bit different come the end of the month as all three have thrown away their razers for a month to raise money for the Richard Butcher Memorial fund Northampton.

 "There's three of us doing it" Ross told us.  "I asked around some of the rest of the squad, but as the manager keeps saying, we're a very young side so i think it might take one ortwo of them more than a month to grown anything worth bothering with!

 "it's just something we wanted to do for Richard Butcher fund.  His mum and dad recently donated some gym equipment to the club, which the lads have really appreciated, and we thought we wanted to do something to help keep the fund topped up.

 "we've chosen this because it's somthing we think that Butch would have enjoyed and got involved with himself."

who do you think will grow the best 'Banger'?

 "wedge has already started so i think he wants to get something pretty impressive going, but we've told him he needed to start from scratch from the start of the month!

 How can the fans contribute?

 "we're hoping to have a collection at Accrington game, and they can also donate by sending a cheque to Richard Butcher memorial fund Northant's  address 114 Euston Road Far Cotton Northampton NN4 8DU.
