St Clair



Match Report

A wet day and an away game on the bog entitled Mark Leece Oval 1. Numbers dwindled due to injury and a few playing carrying knocks. Ipswich left the pitch very early after a sniper shot his calf, again, making way for Scotland. From the moment Scotland took the field he was giving it to Cue Ball, telling him that planking was ‘so last month and that tea-potting was the in thing right now. He begged me to include his favourite tea-potting photo in this week‘s report. How could I say no, how cute! :0)


We grabbed the lead after the ball was laid off to Gazza to slot past the keeper. Not long after, St Clair were awarded a dubious penalty for a hand ball against Uncle Chop Chop. Well despatched, 1 all. From a corner El Capitano was adjudged to have been held and the ref gave us a penalty. The usual chorus of ‘Swinger, Swinger was once again ignored as El Capitano confidently took responsibility…saved. Half time 1 all.

The second half gave Chop Chop and Stanley the opportunity to delight the four injured players on the sideline. Rolling back the years, Choppy produced a back heel down the line to Stanley to stand up two defenders before darting between them with the ball on a string and into open space. Swinger was flattened by a swinging arm. Ipswich hobbled onto the field carrying the only thing guaranteed to arouse Swingys senses and get him off the ground and standing erect quickly…the smell of baby oil on a soaked washer. In a flash Swingy was up with that look in his eye that said Im ready to go‘.

The goals came in a 15-minute period mid-way through the half, all courtesy of Gazza, ensuring the new rule – that, if you do score, it must be in multiples of four – was maintained.
