Now all of the hard work has been put in, it’s time to just sit back and watch Nottingham RFC’s Christmas song soar to the top of the charts.
We are currently working out the processes involved of trying to sell it as a downloadable single to raise money for charity.
We had a tremendous time filming and recording it with Confetti Media in their studio and the boys who were involved did a great job with the microphone.
Everyone knew that our very own Kirsty MacColl, Joe Munro, has the voice of an angel but I don’t think anyone could have known just how deep a voice our Shane McGowan – Ayoola Erinle – had.
It was so deep near the end of the song that even the recording staff at the studio started laughing.
As a rookie on the recording-a-Christmas-single steaks, I was amazed at how long it took to record it and we were eventually kicked out of the studio after two hours because it was someone else’s slot.
We were all happy with the results though and would just like to let any producers out there know that we completing filming and recording under budget.
We stuck the finished results on You Tube and Facebook and had had over 100 hits within the first hour. As I write this, more than 1,700 people have seen it.
We also went on to BBC Radio Nottingham to further plug it which was a good laugh.
There will be little joviality, however, when we play Rotherham and Bristol over the festive period.
This is a big time for us. We have been playing some good stuff over the last few weeks but Rotherham are excellent on their own pitch and Bristol are as big a challenge as you will get in the Championship.
If we get a result at Rotherham, we will know that we are really are getting there.
I have been back in the gym lifting weights and my shoulder is improving all of the time. I would like to thank everyone who has sent best wishes my way while I have been out injured and wish everyone a very merry Christmas.
