They do run, run, run – they do run run!

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


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!

  1. I was probably on a ‘most likely to put the ball over the fence’ list somewhere. But, I’m happy to say that I haven’t done so …yet

  2. I will be coming every week will try and be there for 7.15 but I will definitely be there. Thanks for a wonderful game enjoyed my nut meg did have a chuckle about it.

  3. Tactical move oan my teams part – we allow the opposition tae steal a march oan us so that we can then find oot if we are mentally strong enough tae claw oor way back intae the game – which we have done in the last 2 weeks 👍 – we now just need tae work oan oor fitness to ensure we dinnae allow the opposition a way back intae the game – which we have also done in the last 2 weeks 😡
