WALKING GALACTICOS MATCH DAY 24
We had a good turnout for today`s game 12 players turned up which included a trialist Neil. Neil was so impressed with the skills of Ernest, Jim, Paul and John Mac that he confirmed he would be joining BU3A next week. A membership form is on its way. Now to the game itself.
REDS 5 v 1 GREENS
Jim captain of the GREENS for the won the toss and elected to take the k.o. Both teams took a few minutes to settle but it was the REDS who got into there stride quickest with some good passing moves and from the offset were well organised at the back by John Mac assisted initially by Alan.
In the 8th minute after a fine passing move between Ernest and Neil the latter scored the opening goal with an excellent strike. Well done Neil first start and first goal 8 minutes later.
The GREENS prompted by Jim – Paul and John H started to play some good passing moves themselves and nearly equalised in 15th minute. However it was the REDS who went further ahead in the 19th minute with a great shot from Ernest after a good passing move involving Alan and Neil.
HALF – TIME
REDS 2 V 0 GREENS
It was the GREENS who started the second half much quicker and after only two minutes Mike scored following a quick free kick from Jim. It has to said that Vic who had taken over in goal for the REDS was still combing his hair after the half time break.
That as it turned out would be the last goal scored by the GREENS.
The REDS however went on to notch a further three goals. A strike by Alan which just made it over the line in the 5th minute. Followed by the goal of the match from John Mac in the 9th minute.
Receiving a short pass from Neil he easily swept pass Roy G then giving Les in goal the “eyes” scored with a superb left foot strike now 4 – 1 to the REDS. The scoring was completed in the 12th minute when Ernest scored his second goal of the game from the penalty spot.
