LOB Minor Cup Saturday 11 November @ 1:30 pm Alleyn Old Boys

How do you gloss over a 4-0 loss? I stopped it being 8 or 9 I guess. They were just better than us. Cup run over. All good things come to an end. What comes up, must come down as the saying goes. The same can’t be said though for Remi’s penalty.

For all our endeavours and hard work, they were better organised and a tad more clinical in front of goal. It was 0-0 At half time thanks to both posts, last ditch tackles and a worldie or two. In the second half though they picked us off a couple of times and scored a cracker. As we pushed forward they counter attacked and we just found ourselves short at the back. Just what happens when you’re chasing a goal or two.

Onwards and upwards….just like Remi’s penalty continued upwards, providing something for the inhabitants of The International Space Station to play with.

The banter continued well into the night (circa 8pm when I was hammered and had to go home because the Mrs told me too).

The end

P.s.
