Match Report: The Steam Train pulled into Summerhayes to play the other Springwood team

In the warm up, the Gaffer talked the defence through how to defend

Captain Marvel was benched and fuming as he whispered to Cobra ‘doesn’t the Gaffer know I was Churchies Comp 2005 All Age 16 Player of the Season’

We started at full steam with Paul racing through and firing home early. Springwood utilised the long ball to the big fellas regularly but this was managed by the calm back four of Brad, Potty, Iceman and Cobra with the squabble brothers of Pom and Davey also benched

A couple more goals late in the half – a penalty from Potty (with Iceman waving away the appeal for him to take it) and Chicken leaping more like a salmon than a chicken to challenge for a great cross by Captain Marvel (‘see, I told you I should have been on from the start’) and then peck away at the scraps to knock home

Just before half time, Iceman was felled as an air swing at the ball followed through and chopped him down

At half time the Gaffer said to run at the defenders more to which Hollywood enquired ‘so, I have the green light to do my thing then?’

Dave played centre back, occasionally, in the second half as he sought to get himself off the nudie run. A quick short corner from Cobra to now free flowing Captain Marvel and Dave screaming ‘lay it off…too late…get in!’ as he belted one past the keeper from outside the box. Thor also belted one in a similar manner, showing great technique to keep the ball down

Archie finished things off, carrying out the Gaffers instructions to a tee, floating in off his wing, dribbling past a couple (and heard saying ‘where ya gone?’ or words to that effect, in the process) and shooting neatly in the corner

Looking forward to our re-arranged State Cup 1/4 final v Baulkham Hills this Sunday at 4pm at Valentine Park – support very welcome (we had 2 supporters this week and possibly some bloke Dave works with watched, but left before his goal was scored)
