AFC Keynsham are all set to make the trip down to Weeeeeeymouth for an annual end of season razz up but will be doing so without two of the original twelve.
Tour organiser Darren Wesson was sad to have to announce that both "Double A" Ash Allen and the enigmatic Chris Patch are now unlikely to attend.
Allen has been victim of a break in at his missus house and is staying with her as she is understandably shaken by the experience.
Patchy's reasoning is as yet unclear, but adds fuel to the fire that he has discovered he is to become a father for the first time after a facebook post suggested his other half was expecting. It is unclear at this stage if the tricky winger has been victim of a "fraping".
The ten remaining men will be intent on making sure they consume the booze of twelve, much like the team are expected to up their games individually after Sutton has been sent off.
Wesson has insisted that the tour party meet for breakfast in Weatherspoons in Bedminster by 10am in football shorts and socks with the new black K’s polo so the adventure can begin with eggs and bacon.
