Since our last match with Folkestone we’ve been itching to play them again to show we’re not as dreadful as the 10 – 0 thrashing they gave us made it look. So off to Folkestone we went, with ten eager and fit players… well… eager.
Stand in big boss Steve selected two 5 aside teams.
Team A – Jan, Ross, Lance, Tony and JohnB.
Team B – Big Steve, Rog, Jonathan, Dave E and Dave R. Rog and Dave E both wanted to go in goal as both were carrying horrendously painful injuries and getting little sympathy. It was decided Dave would start in goal for the B team.
We all had to pay a fee towards the slap up buffet we were looking forward to after the match.
Each match lasted 6 minutes and I can’t remember any of the scores, but I do know we did ourselves proud. We were as good as Folkestone in every department except dribbling. Steve Rich of Folkestone showed off his silky skills (to not much avail I must add)… but he certainly has some clever feet… We just stood off him and then clobbered him when we’d seen enough.
None of us had eaten that day due to the fact we thought we were in for a tasty buffet and a beer, but alas, it was not to be. The bar was closed and someone else had eaten the food.
All in all it was an extremely enjoyable evening played in a warm and friendly manner. Well done everyone. We did well. Thank you Folkestone, and hopefully we can do this again soon.
