Player of the Match: The weather
Match Report: 9am kick off and plenty of absences through injury, fatigue, misadventure, holiday and honeymoon saw just 12 of us on the sheet – Hughsey a welcome addition from Fridays giving us the all important 1 sub.
Felts got the nod to play striker, with the risk of being demoted to left back if he didnt break his duck before Skinner returns.
We knocked the ball around well from the start, Felts working a nice 1-2 with Andy and rising to the occassion to finally break his duck – left back avoided for another week.
Felts soon on his second and then playing Ghost through to also break his respective duck. Up 3-0 heading into halftime, with the backline holding firm and Steve making a couple of nice saves to maintain our lead.
A good first half only marred by a potential sniper (yet to be confirmed) taking out Dre’s hammy…although it was clearly weakened following a truly awful 1st time cultured lob attempt earlier.
Down to 11, with the recruitment of Hughsey on loan now a managerial masterstroke.
Springwood got on the scoresheet first in the second half, but Rod put Ads through not long after and Andy combined again with Felts for his hat-trick. Steve also had a blinder, stopping a handful of point blank attempts.
A few other things we learned:
*Ads to never take a free kick again
*Beer soothes Cranky
*Dirty is still clearly fearful of earning a fine for foul throws
*Akin to the multi-academy award winning film – Mighty Ducks – this rag-tag bunch of misfits are working their way up the ladder, now somehow sitting 4th.
