Match Report

With a slow start to the second half of the season due to blanks and bad weather Team 5 travelled to Litchfield for a run out.

With a new signing by ways of Josh “The Lung” Lait, team 5 were expecting a master class from the young 26 year old. We also had Brian “Legs” De Mattos a natural sprinter……20 years ago!

Looking at Litchfield 5ths on paper you would note all the goals they had scored to date but Team 5 kept a clean sheet up and including the 30th minute.

Half time saw Team 5 down 1-0 and all to play for. Lacking puff, legs and heads down Litchfield exploited the good nature of the umpires and began to smash a demoralised Team 5.

Mention in dispatches go out to Steve “The Cat” Rowlands, Callum “Bullet” Nightingale and The Lung for a great first time performance.

Man of the match went to a well deserved Fred and his handler Andy “Exocet” Cooper for putting in a really hard shift this week.

Work on points: One must not blame someone else for the lack of their own personal fitness, One MUST maintain a firm grip of ones stick at all times and finally a hockey stick is not a toy that can be tossed from ones pram!!!!!

Next week deja vu……Team 5 travel to Litchfield.
