Wardle, Maven and Muers, sent off and thinking and watching from the sidelines.

Trawling through our many archives sometimes brings up amazing victories, cracking photos, but usually ignominious defeats. This particular one was a cracker. It was a morning game, played on a cold Saturday, back in October 2003 and the highlights were Muers, Maven and Wardle being sent off within one or two minutes of each other. Other highlights included Greenwell telling all three to “f**k off” on regular intervals.

Don’t miss those early starts on a Saturday, but here is our report from that fateful day.

8:00amAlarm woke me up and it took me 5 minutes to realise what for? Sassco 11-a-side day of course.
8:05amWatched BBC News.
8:30amBreakfast. Tea and two slices of plain toast, no butter, etc.
8:45amGot bits ready. Tried to contact Wayne who wasn’t answering.
9:00amFired up the now newly sprayed white Mid Life Crisis Fanny Magnet aka Le Clit Magnet. Filled it with petrol and proceeded to travel to Boothy’s birds house to pick him up.
9:20amDangerous route through Ford Estate and Pennywell to pick up Wardle and Stubba. If I was around half an hour later, the Magnet would have be stripped bare (wheels and all), and no doubt Boothy would have been gang raped.
10:00amArrived on the pitch. Bloody freezing, began to get a headache and the usual “why do I really bother” thoughts (also echoed by the rest of the team. Mav, Staples and Watty arrive. Mav wishes the game was called off.
10:10amDixon and Galey arrive. Dixon’s the only one who really doesn’t feel the cold.
10:30amMuers Greenwell and Baker are late as always. Sandhills turn up with a vast squad. We’re still down to 8 men. Referee looks dodgy. One of those type of guys who probably couldn’t get in the Police or Fire service and now is a referee ready to lay down the law.
10:35amWe don’t need to put our head to the floor to hear the Greenwell mobile turn up.
10:40amKick off at last
10:43amGoal down in the first minute
10:55amMav tells ref to fuck off and gets sent off
10:56amWardle sticks his oar in and says something similar and gets sent off
10:57amMuers gets sent off because he’s thick as pig shit. Shame he got sent off early. The referee didn’t give me enough time to sub him.
10:58amSpent the first half defending in some style.
11:10amSoon conceded another one.
11:15amWayne bollocks Wardle for getting sent off
11:17amConcede more goals
11:18amWayne bollocks Wardle for getting sent off
11:20amHalf time, we’re around 3 or 4-0 down.
11:21amWayne says to me in seriousness, “ere, we can win this”. Staples nearly vomits.
11:22amBoothy wants to jack it in
11:25amSecond half starts
11:27amWayne bollocks Wardle for getting sent off
11:45amWardle asks the ref to blow his whistle –  Muers ask the referee to “blow on this,” pointing to his crotch.
11:50amI’m beginning to hop around, dying for a piss without getting arrested. There’s no bush or mound in which I can let one out.
11:55amDon’t feel like a piss anymore as the Sandhills basically took it all out of us.
12:00pmStaples nearly scores when were around 9 or 10 down. Dixon sets him up, but he beats the ‘keeper and hits the post.
12:10pmWatson nominated as man-of-the-match after some mind bending saves after the full time whistle blows.
