Deeside 1 - Bowdon Killer Bees 10
Once our glorious captain ('Little Fat Elvis' via Nick
West) had re-arranged our cancelled re-arranged game we were off to the
very friendly and pleasing location of Deeside Hockey club.
I decided that after spending what seemed several days glued to the toilet
seat it was probably a good idea to volunteer for goal duty. Little did
I know how comprehensive Bowdon's attack would be and how little I would
Deeside fielded a mixed age side which ranged from teenagers to the oldest
member at Deeside who was 81! Therefore the game was going to go one of
two ways and it went spectacularly our way! By half time Yokker had managed
5 goals but had also blatantly missed several in order to evade a double
jug fine. Andy on the other hand was making hard work of getting one goal
to his name and hit the metal work during a very rare Killer B penalty
flick. Post match conversations revealed that the flick was a very much
improved attempt from the first two as those had pee rolled along the
ground. Fourth time lucky Andy!
In the true spirit of Bowdon we gave them Mr Phillips at half time to
see if that would improve their situation. Even "turn the game around
from a point of no return Phillips" couldn't turn it around! My only
real action as keeper was giving Ol abuse as I watched an attempted clearance
by the afore mentioned Little Elvis back spin and go wide of the post
by an inch!
I would name all the other goal scorers but the list is long and you know
who you are. The final scores on the door was a well deserved 10 - 1.
Special mentions need to go to Jammy for his solid midfield performance
and to Lord Grant for his usual 100% commitment when he threw his ankle
in front of a ball to stop it hitting me on my pads. How thoughtful is
