article imageOp-Ed: AFC Totton manager skips training session to see Duran Duran

By Christopher Bates     Dec 3, 2011 in Sports
Bournemouth - AFC Totton may be playing the most important game in their 125-year history on Sunday, but manager Stuart Ritchie seems surprisingly relaxed, as he skipped Thursday's training session to see a Duran Duran concert.
Not only did Ritchie fail to give his players a final briefing before Sunday's game, however, he was also scheduled to face the media ahead Sunday's FA Cup second round tie.
Totton - who play in the Evo-Stik South League Premier Division - will take on League Two side Bristol Rovers, in a game that will be broadcast live on ITV.
It's the first time Totton have ever made it to the second round of the competition, but Ritchie isn't getting carried away. "You've just got to relax and enjoy the moment," he said.
When referring to the concert, Ritchie said: "It was a fantastic night - just what I needed to get away from the lads."
The ITV cameras will be awaiting Ritchie tomorrow, in hope that this time he might actually show his face.
