Mud, glorious mud was not the phrase on the minds of frustrated fans after heavy rain thwarted the bid by new manager George Hulley to chalk up his first victory in charge of BULWELL.

For the second week running, Bulwell’s pitch at Greenwich Avenue in Basford was waterlogged, forcing their Central Midlands League, South Division match to be postponed. This time, it was the visit of bottom-of-the-table Eastwood Community that fell foul of the weather.

Veteran Scot Hulley is eager to get off the mark after his first two games resulted in a 4-0 defeat against derby rivals Hucknall Town and the loss of a 4-1 lead against Sherwood Colliery in the league cup.

He continues to try and strengthen his squad and this week snapped up the signing of Giancarlo Rocco from near-neighbours, Linby Colliery Welfare. The Bulls hope Rocco, who has played for Hulley before, can bring some solidarity to the back four. He can also operate in midfield.

Off the field, the club are searching for a matchday photographer to provide images for their website and social media accounts.

It would be an unpaid role. However, Bulwell are prepared to reimburse costs and travel expenses. Any enthusiastic amateur snappers who might be interested should ring secretary Andy Radford on 07855 151928
