Marching on...


Ravaged by injuries after their massive victory last week Notvery Athletic had to play with no subs. Even more unusually the lack of players meant that Dave 'one leg' Brinham was forced to play in a position that was all new to him, defence. Fortunately he was playing alongside Chris' The wall' Harley and Angel, although they played some excellent keep ball straight from the off, were making very little forward progress. When in possession Notvery were looking dangerous going forward but it was a counter attack from Angel that got the first shot on target of the game, blasted in from a tight angle it was clipped onto the bar by Will 'too lazy to play outfield' Collins and away to safety. This proved to be Angel's only shot on target of the match.
Notvery's first goal came shortly afterwards; a well worked move, expertly finished by Ben 'Hebalthwait' Hebblethwaite a real contender against Rob 'it's too cold' Kennington for the NVA top scorer this season. As the game went on some other stuff happened, then the ref blew the whistle for half time and we changed ends. After the restart other things continued to happen, with the tide of the game firmly in NVA's favour and eventually an excellent pass from 'the wall' from within our half of the pitch found Ben 'I don't carry cash' Hebblethwaite who brought it down and crossed for Rob' if I miss someone gets hurt' Kennington on the edge of the box who deftly controlled before burying it in the back of the net.
The good NVA work continued, Al 'trampler' Worthington showed some real determination with an excellently timed lunging tackle, a perfectly legal tackle that the opposition weren't to happy about. Rob 'I need a poo' Kennington had an opportunity to put the game to bed when ending up clean through on the keeper, but had far to much time to think and put it wide.
The rest of the match petered out, punctuated only by Will' wilkinson' COllins slicing a few long balls into touch, basically to get himself noticed so little he had to do in the match.
A further injury to Dave 'took a grenade in Nam' Brinham left him hobbleing around just outside our penalty box for the last few minutes of the game, but Angel were unable to capitalize and the game finished 2 - 0 to the NVA.
So, two victories on the bounce, a clean sheet, 6 goals in two matches and two players joint top on the Golden boot table. Things are looking good for the NVA. We wear the yellow...
