Sunday 29th September 2019 : Looks like the Vets Sunday Football call to arms is working well, 14 bodies turning out this evening . Team of the week where the Pink Ladies, so called due to Skipper Anthony Graham’s neon pink socks. This Team only lost one game all night  with a fair amount of nervous drawn matches to boot. Kelwyn Whittaker provided an excellent foil for the rampant Anthony Graham who seemed to score at will in his magic stockings, nutmegs a plenty, low shots, high shots, long shots as he took the games by storm. (Maybe we should all get a pair of Pink socks). Frank Pleszak played the link up man along with Mark Warner once again claiming some quality goals as the evening progressed.
Mary’s Moaners were tonight’s draw masters 2-2’s and 1-1’s as they struggled to score more than two goals a game all evening. The couple of wins they did chalk up came against the Young Guns, Ronnie Dooley and Chris Podmore scoring and working hard for their win. Paulo Garner also got a token goal, but for all their effort Keith Mastin and Jonboy Goodwin fired blanks over the 90 minutes.
The Young Guns took a few games to get going then exploded into life giving the team of the week a bloody nose. Dan Bailey play maker on the same wave length most of the time with Mike Cole both smashing home some good goals. Dave Brown had us whooping from the gallery with an angled drive into the corner of the net, however this was over shadowed by a wonder strike and goal of the night by Ben Ransom with a top corner net buster . Making his Debut for the Young Guns was Ben Innes who fitted in well with his team mates. He too could challenge for the best goal of the evening with a long range cracker after a flowing move. More of the same next week please gents.

 With City and United both beaten this afternoon, unsurprisingly the turnout was low and sales for Kleenex tissues was high. Luckily with the influx of the Hitler Youth we still managed 10 bodies. John Goodwin transferring over to the Strollers and Mike Cole debuting for the Moaners in an attempt to even up the age gap. The first two hotly contested games both went to the wire finishing 10-9 on both occasions to the Strollers. Remarkably John Goodwin scored the winning goal in both matches. One a perfectly angled side footer and the other a vicious low drive.
The first Match saw Ronnie Dooley and Chris Podmore score some crackers. Mike Cole also found the onion bag. However it was the Strollers who pegged the Moaners back, Dan Bailey and the hard working Nick Lloyd doing the damage. The second match saw the Strollers inflict even more agony on the Moaners. Kelwyn Whittaker and Anthony Graham scoring at will leading the match 7-1. The Moaners rallied Paulo and Keith managing to get on the score sheet. Ronnie Dooley dragging his team mates along. It was not to be however the afore mentioned John Goodwin spoiling the party.
Tired limbs made the last 10 minutes less of a contest with the Strollers again leading this unfinished match as the final whistle blew.
Poor old Mike Cole ended the night in the blood bin after a classic Jonboy and the wall moment. Most of Mikes elbow skin adding to the mortar of the leisure centre brick work.(ouch !!)
Hopefully Three teams next week, come on boys lets be having you.

Stuck in the Etihad traffic yesterday so missed the contest although still  injured. What would we do without our intrepid guest writer, I can't thank him enough for his contributions. I'm sure next week we'll be back to three teams and  I'll be making a return depending on hospital tests this week.

Sunday 13th October 2019 : I was back in action tonight and what a session with 14 lads in three petty equal squads. The football was to put it mildly quite exceptional with Mary's Moaners finishing the night as top team. Maybe they lost two games and drew a couple but overall their play was similar to Japans rugby team today (a sensational victory over Scotland). Slick passing and aggressive pressing was the order of the night with some quite exceptional finishing especially from Scottish Express Ronnie Dooley and Quick Fire Chris Podmore. However it was Cameron Shaw standing in for Paulo Garner who inspired a great team performance from the Moaners with his consistently accurate passing and an eye for goal. The Young Pretenders looked to have the best team on paper but just failed to gel, with two United shirts on display this looked parr for the course. Anthony Graham and Dan Bailey did manage to fire in a couple of brahmers, Anthony's from his own half. My Strollers played some excellent football with Andy Brown playing out of his skin but too often when the goal chances were presented we failed to hit the target. Having said that we did manage a few wins and a couple of draws but also found ourselves on the end of a 9-1 drubbing at the hands (or feet) of Mary's Moaners.
Overall a really entertaining session so for more of the same next week get yourselves down to the Leisure Centre.

Sunday 20th October 2019 : Man United v Liverpool affected tonight's attendance although credit to Kel, Anthony and Andy for choosing to play instead of watching "the worlds biggest game" don't mention that to Barcelona or Madrid or even West Brom or Birmingham. Anyway we kicked off with late arrival Ben Ransom slotting in to Mary's Moaners to make them a six. The Strollers were playing some real quality stuff with the boys passing and moving to great effect. In fact quite surprisingly they built up what seemed an unassailable 7-1 lead. Andy Brown was playing like a man possessed winning tackles, laying it off and scoring some excellent goals. With Kelwyn buzzing about getting into spaces things were looking good for the Strollers. However, you can't keep Mary's down for too long and as Rocket Ronnie Dooley ripped in one of his toe pokers they suddenly started a come back. 7-1 became 7-5 and The Strollers needed some inspiration. Up stepped Graham Levine who fired in a screamer into the net instead of his customary roof shot and this steadied the Strollers who went on to win 10-6. In the second rubber Mary's hit back although tired legs lead to the Strollers making some basic errors which Mary's took advantage of. Ben Ransom came more and more into the game netting a couple or three quality goals to add to Jonboy Goodwin's brace and a subdued Podders suffering from man flu added his share in a 10-7 win. In the final game The Strollers were definitely feeling the pace with Anthony Graham and Kelwyn running on empty but still plodding away. Mistakes gave Mary's all the encouragement they needed and even Zsu Zsu Mastin got into the act with a fine strike from an acute angle. In fact I noticed tonight that the old Cockney Hippie who turned 72 this week was instrumental in many of Mary's moves with some raking passes and he was a cool presence in defence too. Paulo Garner was so busy in defence tonight that he didn't manage to get the better of me in nets although he was the only one. I think Mary's won the last rubber 10-5 to earn the honour of top team for the night. Anyway a really good nights footy was had by all and hopefully the Liverpool and United boys will return next week and we'll be back to three teams.

Sunday 27th October 2019 : A dozen of the guys turned out for our weekly 5 a side bash at the Leisure Centre this evening. As usual we enjoyed a fruitful 90 minutes of thrills and spills with The Strollers setting the pace somewhat in the first game. It was an on song performance with Frankie Pleszak and Kel linking really well and Rick Evans the main threat when it came to planting the ball in the old onion bag. Graham Levine was the backbone in defence but Anthony Graham had the job of linking it all together and he did it to great effect winning that first game 10-1. You can always bank on Mary's Moaners to come up with a surprise or three and tonight was no exception as they came back in storming fashion to level things up with a 10-6 win to take the smug looks off of The Strollers faces. Ronnie Dooley and Chris Podmore played like men possessed as they got stuck into the Strollers. It's always a guide you are in trouble when Zsu Zsu Mastin manages to get on the score sheet and as he fired one in The Strollers knew they were in for a game. Paulo Garner mopped up at the back and fed his team mates like a man from Uber even Jonboy joined in the fun with a neat flick past a bemused errrrr, me.  This couldn't go on and The Strollers moved up a gear and established a 4-1 lead in the following game. Graham Levine recently selected for The Ballon D'or, mainly for the reason that most of his shots end up hitting the doors finally managed to ping in a daisy cutter from distance. To be fair he ripped in a few sizzlers tonight and at 7-2 things looked really good for The Strollers, that was before Kel took one in the eye from a Dooley point blank rocket. Kel's eye instantly went bloodshot and he had to retire for a while. The extra player gave Mary's a sniff of recovery and lots of effort was needed to keep the score down to 8-5 before Kel returned to bravely rejoin the battle. That was enough as Graham Levine lashed in the winner to give the Strollers the honours for tonight.
Hopefully Kel will OK and I'm sure all the lads wish him well and we hope to see him back next week when it will all begin again.

Sunday 3rd November 2019 : With no big games on Sky we were expecting a bumper turnout tonight but managed just ten souls on this bonfire weekend. Three games played and three wins for the Strollers against a Mary's side without Jonboy or Paulo. Frank Pleszak was loaned to the from the Strollers and Ben Ransom slotted in to make the five. The first game was like watching a Pep Guardiola team as Kel, Anthony, Graham and Rick ripped into the Moaners with gusto. Only my dodgy goalkeeping  threatened to stop their flowing football, my distribution was about as reliable as a Rumanian Yodel driver. However, the boys managed to overcome this and closed the game out at 10-7. The second game was a lot closer with Ronnie Dooley stepping up to drive the Moaners on with some excellent finishing taking a 4-1 lead, it was at this point that Ben Ransom went down faster than a fat lad on a see saw,  suffering a clout on his ankle from Rick Evans. He dragged himself up, dusted himself down and went in nets. Further goals from Frankie and Podders and suddenly the Moaners found themselves 7-3 up. Then the Strollers slipped into overdrive with goals from all departments and a 10-8 win was posted with the help of a much improved goal keeping effort from me. The third game was again a close affair but the spoils went to the Strollers with a 10-7 win. I must say it was a pleasure playing with these boys tonight in spite of my inadequacies, no moaning from the guys and a lump of encouragement did me no harm. Good to see Kel back after last weeks injury, still has a good eye for goal

Sunday 10th November 2019 : The big game was on at Anfield so we didn't expect great numbers this evening but 10 rolled up for the weekly session and a good contest followed. After a cagey start The Strollers started to dominate, Andy Brown and Kelwyn carving Mary's open with some super moves. With Graham Levine and Anthony Graham supporting them to great effect things looked bad for the Moaners but, Ronnie Dooley had other ideas firing in some spectacular strikes. Rick Evans backed him up and helped himself to a couple of rippers however the Strollers were too strong and ran out 10-5 winners. The second game was a closer affair until  Ronnie Dooley retired to the nets with an ankle injury, after that there was only going to be one winner as the Strollers gave them a gubbing at 10-3. For the third game The Strollers did a swap deal loaning Zsu Zsu Mastin in exchange for Andy Brown plus a sizeable but undisclosed transfer fee. This made all the difference to the Moaners with Andy prompting Podders and Jonboy to dent The Strollers net on more than a few occasions. I came out of goals and managed my customary strike before replacing Zsu Zsu but quite satisfied with my effort. However, I couldn't stop Rick Evans from slamming in a blinder and Podders hitting the winner it give Mary's Moaners a consolation 10-7 victory.
 Bad news at the end as my beloved Man City succumbed to Liverpool 3-1 to leave Kelwyn, Rick and Anthony well chuffed. Still it's only a game at the end of the day and we live to fight another day  boooowhoooooooooooo

Sunday 17th November 2019 : Once more 10 of the boys gathered at the Leisure Centre for the weekly 5 a side challenge and a mighty fine challenge it turned out to be. With Mary's Moaners stripped of their engine room with Ronnie and Paulo unfit to sail they were bereft of power and a rudder. However, up stepped replacements Andy Brown and Ben Ransom to provide both. The Strollers were to take the first game 10-7 with Rick Evans whipping in a few excellent solo efforts as Kel probed and passed with great success. Podders as usual for Mary's was like a greyhound racing in to tackles and popping in the goals from all angles. A real tussle was on the cards as play switched from end to end. Graham Levine defended with purpose and Dan Bailey linked well with the boys up front scoring a few very neat goals. In the second game Mary's Moaners were not going to be outdone again and they soon established a healthy lead, Jonboy and Zsu Zsu both scored with impressive strikes, Jonboy managing to meg one through my legs. Man of the moment though was Andy Brown who was firing like a souped up Ferrari, bangin' in goals and making mazy runs. The Moaners managed to win this one again 10-7 to level the rubbers at 1-1. In the deciding game Rick Evans managed to pull his "hammies" and took over in goal from me at 4-2. Ben Ransom was coming into his own for the Moaners at this stage and he fired in a beauty to keep the Strollers on their toes but a couple of blinders from Kel and Graham eased the pressure. I then converted a superb cross field pass from Dan Bailey which normally would have made my subs good value but there was more to come. Taking a lovely threaded ball from Graham Levine I turned and controlled it before ripping a corker into the far corner for the winner at 10-6, there's still life left in this old growler. And so ended another really entertaining session and we look forward to more of the same next week when hopefully we'll see the return of Paulo and Ronnie.
