Two fat ladies on top and two goals a piece.
A few changes for the Park View game. Bri Watson was missing and enjoying a dirty weekend at Lumley Castle and Harper failed to show again. Back to bare bones again, with only myself as substitute. However, everyone who said they were going to be there, did turn up. There were returns for Marky Mark, Dave Gourlay and Si Mulvaney, all who were missing last week.
Plan was to put the two fat golden oldies up front; Langan and Emu. Got to be realistic and say that Park View aren’t one of the stronger teams, but both did enough to warrant a return the following week in the same position. Langan fired in two and Emu did the same (with one disallowed).
Muers actually gave Langan a lift in the car and the discussion on the way was that if they were women, would they be slags? Apparently, Muers said he’d bring 10 blokes round to his house (which beats the 5 he already does). The discussion spilled out during pre-match when hypothetically, if some of the team changed into women and sold themselves, the pitch fees would be comfortably paid off. Yet there was a clause put into the change in that our faces wouldn’t change (but the bodies would). So the idea of a toothless Greenwell with long hair standing on a street corner swinging his hand bag wouldn’t be a decent way of getting any funding in.
Back to the football: Gourlay, wasted at left back, scored a penalty.
We were 3-0 up before Simon decided to pass the ball back to Simma. Sounds simple enough, but it was an elaborate scuffed kick, but referee, Terry Ward, gave a free-kick and Park View scored. We ended the first half 4-1 ahead.
Second half saw Tim come off with injury and me replacing him. Soon after we went 5-1 up when Gourlay’s cross was chinned into the back of the net by Emu. They then scored, but no more goals after that.
Tiredness was setting in and both teams suffered. The weather was glorious though and equally more as Sassco took home their first three points.
