The great Battle of Horsforth
In 1980 you could still kick lumps out of people in Football.
Times have changed everywhere else apart from in this game.
The Mighty Silsden u17s afc had to dog deep in this game as Horsforth tried to bully Silsden all over the pitch.
Morgan webster took a shocking tackle to the lower leg within 5 minutes of kick of and could not return to play.
Jonno Day stepped in and played a great game.
For all the yellow cards and warning from the referee Horsforths game plan remained the same.
The mighty u17s afc stayed focused and played football with an early goal from Owen Bridge after an assist from William Proctor which started a Horsforth plan to wipe out nippy Owen (which mighty have worked if they could have caught him)
William Proctor then scored goal number 2 which made him target no2
Shocking brutal tackles all over the pitch saw a complete bellend tackle on Will Proctor that only resulted in a yellow card.
Andrew Griffiths scored his 1st goal for the u17s which put the game out of reach for Horsforth.
ending the game with 20 minutes of Silsden Keeping the ball and Horsforth kicking lumps out us.
A very Focused game by everyone and a great job of not retaliating .
in the afternoon i walked around Golden Acre park and had a Cake and a coffee and even finished Tracys cake off because i had given her flu the week before..
Deal with it
