Andy had Home stuff to do, so young Danny went in goal, and also the Mad Ginge from Garibaldi was playing for them.
Mad Ginge lined up on their Left Mid, Big Mistake, as it took Johnny only one minute in to superbly Nutmeg him on the ½ way line. However, three minutes later big Andy Levy headed home at the near post from a corner. Oops 0-1. We piled on the pressure and three minutes later Marco ran down a long ball on the left, pulled it back to Simon, who attempted a shot, but it just squirted across the box, but luckily found Belch loitering on the far edge of the 6 yard box, who promptly buried it. 1-1
Incredibly, six minutes on, Tuck launched an enormous clearance from left back which landed 30 yards out, and the ever alert predatory Johnny robbed their dithering defender, took it round him, then rounded the keeper to finish with aplomb. 2-1
The next ½ hour was nip and tuck and a couple of smart saves from Danny kept the scoreline in our favour, then another clearance, this time from Belch, was completely Bolluxed by two Stablers defenders, whilst Marco just stood there four yards away. As they lost it Marco picked up the loose ball on the ½ way line, and Whhoosshh away he went. Hit a low shot from about 16 yards on the right, and their keeper weetabixed it, and suddenly we’re 3-1 up. Yippee !!! H/T 3-1
Three Subs available, so everyone doing a Dicky Booker, so no changes were made.
Five minutes had passed when their Often Offside No 10, got away from the ½ way line, bore down on Danny, but made the mistake of trying to Chip him. Danny casually plucked the ball from the sky, and the danger passed. However, one minute later, No 10 again broke away, Zed chasing after him, Nibbled at him 25 yards out, but amazingly failed to bring him down. A low shot from about 16 yards on the right was palmed away by Danny, but it still nestled in the corner of the net. 3-2
Four minutes later, they had a corner, which was headed powerfully against the bar with noone moving at all. Hanging on Baby, with over ½ an hour to go.
Not Ideal, but it’s time to bring on the Subs, so Chike replaced Belch and 14 mins later in the 76th minute Mikey replaced Simon. Zed decided that our Midfield was now suffering, so when Flipper went down under a heavy challenge, Zed had brought on Frank in Midfield, Moved Uday to Eight back and put Mikey up front. Good stuff, but a clearly bemused and dejected Flipper left the field.
Still heavy pressure from Stablers resulted in a powerful shot from 15 yards nonchalantly flicked over the Top by Danny with 5 minutes to go. The resulting corner was again headed goalwards, which Danny scrambled away at the near post. Two minutes later, yet another corner was headed in, but
hit Danny on the shoulder and flew over the top. Just after, VJ blew for Full time, and a well earned win over a very competent Stablers side (Of Losers !!!). F/T 3-2
