|REMIE SCORES HIZ FORST GOAL!|
(HOPE YIV GOT GOOD EYESIGHT?)
Three of us travelled doon to 'this one' by 'jam jar' supplied by 'Michael the Mag' and wor other travellin 'saddo' waz 'Blondie Alan the Morris Dancer' who we picked up at Durham.
Fower and a half hours later and with ne traffic delays we foond worsels ootside Boremwood FCs groond in "norf Landan" @ '4:30 bells' ('7 bells ' kick off)
Az there were ne boozers around the groond and the clubhouse waz disgracefully shut!, we heeded for the toon centre half a mile away for some much needed 'liquid lubrication' in a Wetherspoon's hostelry.
It waz then onward back to the groond where by this time the clubhoose had opened! <(horray!)
It waz virtually empty apart from a few familiar 'Toonhoppers' and after anothaa bit of 'tonsil ticklin' it waz time to heed inside!
Admission waz FREE but despite this a sparse crowd greeted us upon entry. Meadow Park iz a nice tidy groond with two small seated stands and the pitch looked in 'top nick'!
Central defender Remie Streete waz wor hero of the day az he scored two 'sweet' 'Quality Streete' heeders (sic!) to win the game for The Toon. The Arse pulled one back at the death but it waz aall tooo little tooo late for The Gooners second string!
A thord win on the spin for WOR second string---if anly we could transfor this form to the forst team---if anly!
More on aall this to follow when aa get time!---like!?
