See the 2017 Team
Week 12 - Wednesday 6th April
FIRST DRAW OF THE SEASON
We were all set for a six a side slog out, then Tom retired just after kick off having a boot issue. Stef then arrived late so the teams were re jigged again. Eventually we sorted it out and the match got underway.
BIBS – BEATTS, JAMES, GARNO, JONNIE, CHRISTIAN & SIMON.
SHIRTS – RYAN, JAKE, AILES, GAZ & STEF.
Not ideal when the teams are un even but our three musketeers Ryan, Ailes and Jake gave a fantastic performance with Gazza and Stef in outstanding supporting rolls. The Match Was close with the Shirts holding the lead till the last minute . Simon set the standard once more though not as prolific in front of goal as the last few weeks. James was everywhere scoring and defending in equal measure. Beatts and Christian were amongst the goals with both Jonnie and Garno claiming long rangers past Gazza.
The accolades however go to the Bibs, work rate, passing and finishing . Some exquisite goals from Ryan and Jake and some supper finishes from Gaz and Stef on the end of flowing moves. Ailes also showed his class linking up the play. Poor passing in the last seconds, lead to Gazza and Jake linking up, and Gazza smashing in their well-earned equaliser . Still enough time for one more play, Ryan to Jake, back to Ailes…..across to Gazza….back into Jake, turning,jinking then stopping dead….to side foot a shot towards the top corner of the net with the goal keeper rooted.
Players held their breath………”Ping!!“ the sound of the ball hitting the angle of the goal and bouncing back into play. That was the last kick of the game.
FINAL SCORE – BIBS 13 – SHIRTS 13.
Comedy Moment – Tom (Ailes brother) bringing a pair of small boots.
Man Of the Match - Has to be huffing and puffing Vet Garry Bradley….Well done for keeping going and some great goals.
I'm not sure I can put Tom into the points table this week as he didn't start the game.
