Right Here Right Now*

After the glamour of Monday's National Cup game Wednesday's Sutton session could have been a damp squid but not at all The footballing feast served up by our Over 60s and Brunswick Old Boys didn't over-shadow those enjoying their mid-week action Instead we were entertained in regal fashion with goals, great football and even a tiff The tiff featured 2 of the Club's best buddies, Lord Rainford reacting with plenty of menace to the naughty stray and late lunge perpetrated by Disco Deggs This in the opening exchanges could have simmered over but just as quickly the two 'kissed and made up' Normal play continued with no further friction

The distractions of Wednesday evenings continue to affect our numbers Last evening we had 17 players and Coach Davies on duty After El Presidente stretched those assembled with his new twist on mass obedience and brain washing (exercises with a distinct North Korean theme) Coach selected his teams with the prospect of an uneven numbers game

The teams were;

White (9) - Tom Stretch (an early arrival to work on shooting practice), Lord Rainford, Steve Honeyman, Sharon, Joe the Ghost, Cockney Rebel, Harrison, Tony Snakehips and Nigel (returning after a 3 week hiatus)

Pink (8) - El Presidente, Chris 4G, Les Pippo, Citeh Geoff (king of the Tivo), Grav, Colin, Disco Deggs and Phil the Power


Play was lively and end to end with both sides displaying good movement and awareness The passing was generally decent but it is an area that we acknowledge could be improved For the first period of 3 the teams enjoyed the warm sun, that proved less effective as play continued Pink had the sun at their backs White the sun in the their eyes


Pink despite their numerical disadvantage took a deserved lead with Phil finishing off a good move that started with an intercepted midfield steal by El Presidente 1-0 to Pink as the period ended

The restart turned the game in favour of the White with the sun behind them Pink were hemmed in to their final third and finding it difficult to play through their opponents to safety Tony pounced on a poor clearance to volley a rising shot into the top corner Tom then found goal stretching out of El Presidente's closing tackle to fire past Les off a post 2-1 to White and the game on its head in short time Steve the Honeyman returned from a spell in goal to lead the line for White He used his close control and physique to hold off El Presidente to fire home his side's third goal of the period

Sharon and Nigel enjoyed a spell of midfield control with Tony, the Ghost, the Honeyman and Harrison all providing forward movement and a route to goal Lord Rainford had a highly effective spell in the White rearguard As play paused for the final break Pink looked out of the contest 3-1 down after their earlier heroics

The final period was a much closer affair with Pink playing a higher pressing game (perhaps the setting sun helped their efforts) In classic counter attacking Tom found Steve Honeyman who placed the ball in the far corner 4-1 Game Over! Perhaps not Colin was on hand to find the net for Pink and at 4-2 was a comeback on? The dying moments provided some further chances for Pink but no goals White worthy winners making their numerical and sun assisted advantage pay
