Walloping at Wickersley

The 2nd team travelled to Wickersley on Saturday, keen to erase the memory of Houghton Main. This was achieved…………………only to be replaced by an even worse one.

First things first, 6 people were there on time for the warm up. Colton, Riaz, Bully, Benji, Danny and Colton. The other 5: Josh (walking his dog around the ground), Javed brothers (got lost?), Israh (ill?) and Butts (already spoken to skipper about the fact he was going to be late). Hardly the best preparation – extremely embarrassing to be fair, and some may argue writing was on the wall early.

Seconds stay up in nail biter at Rockingham

The 2nd team went to Rockingham on Saturday, needing 7 points to guarantee their safety. This would also mean Riaz would be allowed to leave the country.

The day started very badly, as only 5 players were present at 12pm, with 12.30 start. Stewie – not happy, and let the absent players know as much! Thankfully But Matler (in a strange mood all day – he smiled twice?) provided the pre-match meal (Crab Mayo sandwich, Crisps and Pork Pie) and the tardiness was soon forgotton. Anyway, toss lost, and we were asked to field.

Unfortunately, due to the way we fielded, do not think we will be playing football for a long time as part of our warm up.
