General Debate on Sport

February 5, 2019


Last night in the Commons we had a debate about sport. Whilst I'd hoped to be able to bang on forever about all the things I love and all the brilliant clubs in Mansfield, unfortunately it turns out lots of other MPs like sports too and we ended up with just 5 minutes each to make our case.


I did manage to mention Mansfield Town Football Club and Nottinghamshire Powerchair Football Club, as well as my own personal love for England Hockey and Belper Hockey Club where I spent many of my teenage years along with some of those who managed to win gold for GB ladies in Rio in 2016.


Unfortunately tight timings prevented me from finishing everything I had wanted to say in what was originally a speech 5 times longer... including talking about AFC Mansfield, Welbeck Cricket Club, Official Mansfield Rugby Club, Mansfield Harriers & AC, Mansfield Bowls Club and Frenbot Charity Football Match 2019 as well as the John Fretwell Centreand Forest Town Arena... Hope to get them all on the record in future!
