MAKE A RARE ATTACK ON THE SPORS GOAL
@ 'THE PRIVET HEDGE END'!
After droppin' off fellow 'mad-sad groundhopper' 'Liam of Westgate' ootside 'The Newcasil Laybaa Club', havin' just retorned from wor 600 mile roond trip 'sorte' to "norf Landan", it's time to write the latest 'disaster report' to add to the 'extremleee mad-sad list'!
"A RACE AGAINST TIME!"
We set off from Morrisons supermarket @ Killingworth (where Liam works the neetshift) @ 'twenty to seven am bells' this mornin' in mee 'canny tranny' for the 300 mile trip to Enfield, where Spors have their new trainin' complex.
With just ower fower hours to get there it waz aalways gannih be a 'close caall' az to wetha we would make the start.
To cut a lang story short we had 'googled' a map to take us exactly to wor destination and on arrival in Enfield with 'ne time to spare' (az it waz dead on 'kick off' time) we tried frantically to find the complex which we thought waz next to 'The Rose & Crown' boozer (but WASN'T!?)
A desperate phone caall to 'The Bear' (who waz aaready at the complex) to ask him where the hell it waz then followed???
The complex waz in fact a mile away from where we were on a different road (he telt us!) and by the time we eventually arrived, we had missed the forst twenty minutes of the game!
'Glennn from Ashington' who waz aalso another 'extreme saddo' who had made the 'pilgrimage' to the new groond telt us that 'The Toon' were aalready two-nil doon and that Spors had just scored their 2nd goal az we arrived! (at least we hadn't missed a TOON goal!)
We DID see the thord goal however!---scored by a TOON player, namelee, Yven Moyo!---UNFORTUNATELEEEE it waz a heeded OWN GOAL into The Toon goal to put us three-nil doon orly in the 2nd half!
Spors forward, Pritchard, then curled a free kick high into wor net with 'not one' Toon player respondin', az they stood like statues az the baall flew past them!
To be fair not one of wor line up had ever had forst team expierience and it showed
(see crumpled team sheet below!)
A fortha two goals from Obika completed wor misery for a six-nil rout!
We then jumped back in wor 'canny tranny' and heeded the 300 miles back up the A1!
Anotha one off the 'disaster list'!
PS: The Toon U18s aalso lost to Spors U18s--by 4 goals to 1 on a pitch on the other side of the complex!
