A delayed roundup, but two wins and a loss from three games last weekend, overshadowed by human garbage stealing from a number of the 4th XI.
A stunning comeback for the 2nd XI, winning from the old goal in five. We were actually losing until the 80th minute before smashing in three goals to advance to the next round of the AFA. Another goal for Ed after last week too.
A bad day for the 5th XI. In difficult conditions and after a few dropouts, an early injury to Charles and some questionable decision making from the ref, we succumbed to a strong opposition who handled the game better than we did.
Finally, despite a great win for the 4th XI who came back from 2-1 down, the game was overshadowed by thieves stealing a number of bags from the back of Ed’s car and taking off with everything. Despite a pursuit using find my iphone, the team were unable to retrieve their goods. The police have been noted, and a very minor consolation is that the draw for the next round should be positive for the team.
More games to come this weekend, make yourself available – Up the birds! And don’t forget: the Xmas do is the 9th December. Get it booked in now.
