MATCH DAY 15

Today`s match result was REDS 3 V 3 YELLOWS

This was probably one of the most evenly contested games and some good football was played by both teams.
Paul scoring his 11th goal opened the scoring for the REDS latching on to a fine through pass to shoot pass Max in goal for the YELLOWS. The passing game played by both teams continued to flow and the Yellows equalised through Jim in the 16th minute. Then much against the run of play Roy G scored a second for the Yellows. Half time score REDS 1- 2 YELLOWS

The second half followed the same pattern of the first half with both teams determined to play passing football.Ernest who was refereeing the match was having a good game keeping a tight control on proceedings. He did however have to have a word with Alan and award a free kick against him for running (again).

In the 27th minute after a fine passing move between John H and Paul who then set up John M to score the equaliser for the REDS now 2-2 .However in the 30th minute Jim who was playing a starring role along with Alan for the YELLOWS found himself in the clear from a through ball from Alan. He waltzed past Paul in the REDS defence then sent a fine shot past Roy B.

So now 3-2 to the YELLOWS what a match Nigel the Bar Steward at DMW & SC could hardly contain his excitement watching from the terracing.

Then in the 35th minute of the game the REDS drew level again with Mike scoring the equaliser after yet another passing move involving John H and Paul. Then in the dying moments of the game Alan thought he had scored a dramatic winner only to be correctly ruled out by a correct and brave decision by Referee Ernest.
As Alan had encroached into the penalty area before "scoring".

FINAL SCORE REDS 3 v 3 YELLOWS

This now leaves the top scoring chart as follows : John M 16 - Alan 14 - Ernest 12 and Paul on 11.

Match Day 16 is Friday 25th of May

Please keep spreading the word about WF amongst your BU3A friends we could really be doing with another 5 or 6 players.

NEWSFLASH

As most of you are aware I refereed in The Scottish Premier League for a number of seasons. I still keep in touch with ex FIFA referee Hugh Dallas who is now head of UEFA referees and is on the match selection panel for referees in the upcoming World Cup Finals in Russia. I was telling him today about Ernest`s excellent performance and that coincidentally Ernest will be in Russia during the World Cup.
Hugh`s retort was tell Ernest to pack his cards and whistle in case he is needed in an emergency. Match fee is $ 3,000.

Coordinators: John MacKinnon and Mike Newton. Details on contact sheet.
