THE TOON U21 RESORVES 4 THE CANARY CUSTARD U21 RESORVES 1 *** PLAYED @ 'HIGH NOON BELLS' LAST FRIDAY!

Posted '8:05pm bells' Sunday 22nd December 2013 (2 days late!)
JUST SECONDS AFTER AA TOOK THIS ACTION SHOT, THE BAALL
'JUST' CROSSED THE LINE FOR AN EQUALISER FOR THE TOON,
MUCH TO THE DISMAY OF THE NORWICH GOALIE WHO THOUGHT
THE BAALL HADN'T CROSSED THE LINE!
 MY VIEW THAT IT HAD INDEED CROSSED THE LINE, COULDN'T
HAVE BEEN BETTER! (SEE MATCH REPORT BELOW!)

This 'high noon bells' Friday dinnaatime kick off @ 'Blue Flames' attracted the lowest crowd that av ever seen at a Toon resorve fixture and a coonted that 130 were present az the game started!

Played in windy and chilly conditions 'The Canary Custards of Norwich' drew the forst 'blood' when they took the lead in the 26th minute, after a misstayk by Toon defender Curtis Good and Morris took advantage for the visitors by slottin' the baall home.

The Toon hit back on the half hour mark, when, (and az aa waz waalkin' behind the Norwich goal), the baall came across and Rolando Aarons played it to Adam Campbell who fired towards the goal, the baall hit a Norwich defender and just crossed the line for the equaliser!
SPOT THE 'CROWD'

Their keeper Ben Killip protested and claimed it had NOT crossed the line, but it clearly had, az aa waz standin' reet behind the goal!

Az he waalked back towards the goal after hiz 'protest', aa shouted to him, (that, although aa waz biased), the baall had indeed crossed the line! ('The Fink' magic eye wins the day!) <(he waz NOT a happy bunny!)

Anyway!--it didn't matter az forthaa goals from Bigiramana from the penalty spot in the 35th minute, 'Spiderman' in the 64th minute, (who scored after a neat 'one-two' with Campbell) and finally (in the last throws of the game) a corner kick, which foond 'The Mighty' Jonathyn Quinn who then prodded the baall home to complete the scorin' for The Toon!

The official 'crowd' waz announced ower the tannoy and waz given az just 125 (5 lower than aa coonted at the start!) <(aa waz never any good at maths at skoool!---like!)

After the match we heeded for the three boozers on the way back to 4 Lane Ends Metro station where we got completeleee 'snozzled' <(hence the very late reportin' of this game!)
