"New and Old"

Updated: Aug 13

Wednesday‘ Sutton session blog courtesy of our cub reporter PhilMiddleton Our thanks to Phil no doubt the responsibility played havoc with his personal performance on the night He’s usually good for a goal or two

2 teams of 8 I think I counted all players. Alain was our sole spectator, 1 ref, 1 coach and 1 Newbie Gary who made a solid impression, even if he looks our youngest member.

Score 2- 0 to red team

Teams selected by Coach John Davies, all agreed his choices ensured a fair and finely balanced contest

Reds were

Speedo, Gareth, Les, Deggsy, Gary, Andy, Joe and Geoff


Tom, Phil, Steve, Cockney Rebel, Lord Rainford, One More John's, Grav, Grazer, and Jeff

Goals from Les and a returning Gareth were a good reward for the slightly better team on a night when the Blues found it hard to create many chances

New and old on display tonight newbie Gary showing us a glimpse of the future and good old Degsy getting a predictable Blue Card, not 100% sure if it was for kicking ball away or for repeated running or what. But he took it in good spirit. Lord Rainford also took Referee Steve‘s eye with what I counted as 4 maybe even 5 free kicks conceded for running. However he did escape the Blue Card sanction and put in his usual solid defensive performance.

Most enjoyable stuff.

Les was approached by a potential new player who enquired about playing , so we go from strength to strength as a club. World domination next maybe .
