Match Report: First home game and up against the ‘other’ Springwood team. As we lined up for kick off we could see that our opposition had less than 11 on the pitch. The injured Pom was walking across the pitch to take his place on the sideline to watch. Dave made the offer for Springwood to take Pom back again to help out and the Springwood Captain let Dave know he was more than happy to play short

We got underway and after a bit of huffing and puffing we finally started to find some rhythm and were four up by half time – thanks to a couple of Brad volleys, a Zap header and a Captain Marvel’s back post finish. We also won a penalty that no one seemed to want to take – so Greenie took it and we all wished someone else had

The ref was having a great game but let me know that he needed something to pick him up. At half time, to help him out, Marty and Paul game him one of the sandwiches they had made at home and brought to the game to have

In the second half Springwood pulled one back courtesy of a penalty – Chicken adjudged to have handled even though none of us saw it or the linesman who was right in line. Later on Mark Sem was through on goal and up-ended – clearly in the box – the ref gave a free kick some 5 metres outside of the box

Late on Thor, relishing his time at centre forward, banged in two cracking goals

Post match discussion included agreement to never let Paul or Marty give a referee a sandwich again as clearly whatever they had put in it had clouded his thinking in the second half with some strange decisions
