Training session 7

Due to the pull of foreign climates, forgotten mothers birthdays and driving lessons the turnout for this weeks session was lowly and those that were available turned up in dribs and drabs due to inconsiderate managers scheduling meetings at 5.00 in the afternoon. This resulted in us playing about 7 different matches: 2 vs 3, 3 vs 3, 3 vs 4, change the teams because they're not even, 4 vs 4, 4 vs 5, change teams again because shirt colours are clashing 5 vs 5 etc

As the numbers were so low defences were non existent causing a veritable goal frenzy and the final tally, before we decided to change to playing two teams and one goalie in the big goal, was about 23 - 17. This did however result in everyone on the pitch getting on the scoreboard, which was nice. The probable highlight of this goal fest had to be Jk tricking himself, tredding on the ball and ending up in a mangled heap on the floor.

As we switched to all shooting at the big goal the ladies who were on next began to show up and the attempted tricks level increased. However they were probably most impressed by Paul 'iron balls' Burrows take a full pelt screaming shot straight in the happy sac and carrying on as if nothing had happened.

There was also an extremely embarrassing nutmeg, but it was me that was 'megged' so I'm not going to mention it. (thanks very much for that JK).

Club news:


For the first time since we started paying for the pitch WMpS Fc is in the black, match fees wise, having been able to pay back its considerable debt (£10) to Mr William Collins. Thankyou very much to him. This means that taking into account fines (including those owed) the club is now £9 in profit.

Team name:

As I have now also been booted out from underneath the WMpS umbrella the club actually has more players that do not work at WMpS than that do. I therefore suggest that a name change may be required. Add any thoughts on this to the forum post 'the names have been changed to protect the innocent'

The rumour mill:

There is news on the grapevine of a return of Hannah Shaw from the wilderness, glue those razor blades back onto your shinpads Colin.

Fines league table:

Interestingly enough Matt tops the fines league table with 4 fines but has never played in a game since the fines were implemented. Go Matt!

    News of a possible transfer: Mike Huggins has a trial at Beverley Town on Tuesday so won't be able to make WMPS training. On the bright side he will be back the following week XD

  5. Can they afford the £1.50 and a packet of crunch creams transfer fee?

  6. Childbirth looks like ruling me out this week, damn and i had a 100% record as well.

  7. Congratulations on the sproglet! Anti-congratulations on missing the footie. Looks like your newborn chose the right one for ya, its peeing down out there.
