I am informed by Barnaby Mckay that my report on Saturday’s game against Old Woodhousians contains an error.
The first goal was not scored by Dave Cronin, but by Barnaby. He tells me modestly:
Following a corner, Dave cut inside, unleashed a shot from the edge of the area which cannoned off the underside of the bar and into my path. With characteristic aplomb I struck the ball left footed (otherwise known as the standing leg) lashing into the goal from 6 yards through a crowd of players.
Characteristic aplomb, eh? Get her!
This was actually the goal that I described as the fourth or fifth so there’s still a goal missing there somewhere. It’s their own fault for scoring so damn many. Having to remember six Latymer goals in one game is frankly not something I have a lot of practice with.
Apparently that was Barney’s first goal in two years so very sorry I missed it. Of course he only plays two games a year so that’s not bad going really.
In other news, it looks like Jonesy is leading the 4s out again this weekend. I replied to the text message he sent yesterday asking for availability that following last week’s clean sheet nothing on God’s earth would stop me from playing on Saturday and that if he picked another keeper instead I would kidnap them and send Jonesy one severed finger per hour until he gave in to my demands.
“That’s the spirit!” said Jonesy in response.
