Write-up by Pete
Twas the night before Game Day, when all through the clubs
The Giraffe was stirring, boozing it up
Toddy was nestled all snug in his bed,
While visions of tinder matches danced in his head.
Crespos boots were hung by the door with little care,
Knowing CJ would say ‘good work son you did me proud out there’.
Horton woke with a startle thinking he heard a who
When nothing was to be seen he snuggled back into a naked Shamoo
When out on the pitch there arose such a clatter,
The Elite sprang from their beds to see what was the matter.
Kissing their loved ones farewell and giving Shamoo and pash.
Away to the field the Elite flew like a flash,
On the field Seatoun were milling around
Like cats being led to a killing ground
Not a ref to be seen and half of Seatoun were late
We could even overhear them saying “What are the rules on throw ins mate”
Kick off occurred, so lively and quick,
CJ trying to pull off a younger mans trick.
10min in with a puff and a wheeze
Seatoun scored with far too much ease
Before we knew it we were 3 nil down
Half time was called with the Elite showing a frown
The second half was off to a late start
Some Seatoun player was pottering about like an old fart
Finally real football was being played
The Elite hoped that Dreams could be made
Disco Stu scored with a might hoof
Then played it off acting all aloof
One of the Seatoun players had a glass knee
Always eating the turf to earn his acting fee
Decisions were reversed
Leading the ref to be cursed
At 90 minutes the whistle did blow
Looks of disappointment the Elite did show
It was then off to the pub for the 3rd half
This one we won while having a laugh
God damn that took most of my Monday to write, you better appreciate it. But in all seriousness I think we started a bit rusty (more beers needed on Friday I think) but in the second half we really upped our game and played some damn good football. It was a real shame we couldn’t secure the draw but it was a superb day for football and the sun made the beers taste all the sweeter.
3 Points – Goes to the second best goal this season (let’s face it mine was far more glorious) and also Stus ball distribution for the full 90.
1 Points – Tom, not an easy day to run up and down the side line but I thought you ran more than anyone else on the field and managed to deliver some decent crosses and was a shame about that damn post getting in the way
1 Point – Greg, constantly getting involved in the tackles and never letting up during the game
1 Point – Toddy, with Damn once again at the annual Pimp convention Toddy stepped up and managed to do some good sweeping work to keep the opposition out. Feel free to use the above as a quote on your tinder profile Toddy.
