Once called the "goal machine" - he has become so tragically

game. He is a pretty solid bloke. It is going to knock him back quite a
bit, but he will get through it. The accident in Swindon
last December is still Jamie is being treated
at a hospital in Oxford. Where he's undergoing four
hours of physio a day. It is amazing. He has talked to me
about the Paralympics and things. We had a few interesting chats about
breaking Oscar Pistorius's records. What matters most right now to Jamie
are those closest to him. When I bring in the twins he is so
happy. Considering it was only a few weeks ago he was in a coma, it is
happy and smiling. He can do most happy and smiling. He can do most
wings now without prosthetics. When he has then, he's going to be
normal, he will be fine. More than ?100,000 has
already been raised. And former school mate

Bristol City's fantastic 4-0 defeat of Huddersfield on Friday -
here's a look at this First-half goals from Lee Clark and
Tariq Gaffney were enough to earn Bristol Rovers victory over
Chesterfield. They're just three points off the League 1 play-off
places. Swindon conceded twice in the last six minutes to Luther
Bradford. They look to have won the game with this, before the home side
fought back, leading them third from bottom. Cheltenham, who were without
manager Gary Johnson as he recovers from heart surgery, almost scored in
the opening minute against Cambridge. The visitors intervened
and took and held the lead with their first attack. Yeovil equalised
in the 74th minute to get a point against ten man Acklington. Forest
Green moved level on points with National League leaders Lincoln

but despite selling in their millions - the business ran
into some problems - and Peter's sons remember
He had a big bonfire and he burnt everything to do with the kite. He
said to me, whatever you do, do not start up business back up again. 15
years later, me and Paul started the business back-up. Nobody wanted to
tell him. We were so pleased that he was thrilled to bits. He had a bee
in his bonnet. He could disown you. Hear more of their story -
and see how Seb got on with a bit of kite flying -
