With our now customary away day travel confusion it was agreed to make Grant head of travel operations after his now famed Birmingham-Manchester-EastMidlands flight to Turkey !!
Crowd watch – with the clock ticking away a cloud of smoke heralded the late entrance of our landmark yellow truck as it came steaming into the carpark. With Birthday Boy Phil appearing after going looking for sandwiches and coffees but came back with pop, chocolate bars and a Pork Pie ......no candles between 9 diehards !
Manager watch - Ian Mancini and Ben Big Eck were still deliberating how to explain the tactics without the fabled wipeboard when up popped Derek with the magic board. Ben then realized he still had 3 players missing and could be heard mumbling about postcodes, the internet and how unfair life was to him and why didn’t anybody listen to him ….
Josh R picked the ball up and drove home from outside box
Taylor made the most of goalmouth scramble
Taylor - inswinging corner keeper could only push into own net
Morgan’s goalbound effort touched in by Dexter
Dexter had long range effort go in
Taylor drove on beating several players smashing a unstoppable shot
Alfie F tapped home from close range from a corner
MOTM Morgan D did a double drag back before slotting into corner
The 2nd half started in somewhat subdued fashion with Colron spraying the ball all around the pitch.
JB playing in left midfield had 2 great shots saved before a pass come bouncer from Alfie F looped over the stranded keeper.
Taylor beat 3 men before making it. Morgan D then struck a fine effort which looked goal bound but Alfie F completed his hat-trick by poking home.
Then came our Big Eck moment - Dexter unleashed a vicious effort which their keeper pushed onto the inside of the post dropping down World Cup 66 style before Morgan slotted home – we needed to consult the 3rd official.
There was still time for Alfie U and Sam D to impress knocking the ball around and intercepting whenever Coleshill pushed forward ..... and Josh R had another Savo moment hammering an angled shot over before Dan capped a fine game with a late strike.
Inside the Bootroom - Even confusion with times and venue didn’t stop the lads with some great passing football, great goals and overall team performance! Ian ‘Mancini’ Chalmers
