Match Report: 17/05/17
With the eagerly awaited tightening up of the running rule, the players arrived as usual with their chatty warm up. Once again, which seems to be a the pattern emerging, Davey Milne’s team was slow out the blocks. Hatchet’s men chopped up the opposition with some stylish passing and clinical finishing. With the game being broken up with running by a referee being strict on this part of the game that threatens to ruin the Walking game Davey’s team began to find a way back into the game. Both Captains, Davey and Hatchet had a spell in the sin bin for overstepping the running ban with a few others on warnings. Pete Bell turned up to take a spell in goals and immediately showed what an inspired substitution it was. Getting down early to push away a corner of the net bound shot. Unfortunately he was nutmegged from 15 yards!!! Andy Medford is showing he is warming to this game as he took control of many a move and a couple of goals to achieve man of the match votes in the after game discussions. Sye Webster again controlled the midfield letting the more fit guys in his team do all the “running”. George Mackenzie once again playing solidly at the back mopping up the slack passes and making valuable tackles.
- With lots of discussion to the actual score from both teams it emerged that the score finished 7-7. Well done to the scorers and the people involved in putting the moves together. Well done to both teams for a good all out game of football. Things to remember:-
• No sliding tackles
• No tackles from behind
• No playing the ball when you’re on the ground
• NO RUNNING
A report has been sent to Condor to make the fences behind the goals 10 feet taller as we are losing lots of balls from wayward shooting. Ya bunch o’ neeps!
