Sunday 6th January 2019 : Eleven Veterans opened the 2019 chapter of 5 a side football at New Mills Leisure Centre. Ronnie Dooley poking in the first goal of the year from close range, in the first of four hard fought encounters. The red line rule applied for the team with six players. The Moaners enjoying the skill and guile of Keith Mastin in the first match, with the Strollers benefiting from our leaders cool head in the second. Keith’s influence was apparent as both sides won their matches by the same score 10-6. After an hour Chris Anthony left the field having performed brilliantly, quite a tally of classic goals for him to relive and  dream about at bed time.
This meant the third game reverted back to our familiar 5 v 5. This match saw the Moaners push the Strollers to the limit, goals flying in from all players and from all angles John Goodwin lashing in a few on the turn, The inexhaustible Chris Podmore on target, Ronnie and Paulo blasting in a varied collection of net busters between them.
The Strollers were always in with a shout Kelwyn Whittaker leading by example feeding Graham Levine and Dave Brown to reduce the deficit and also converting some sublime solo efforts. Frank Pleszak was amongst the scorers and was calm under pressure in defence. As the Moaners battered post and bar in search of their elusive winner, Paul Holmes raced up field to level the match 9-9 and add to his considerable tally of goals throughout the 90 minutes. Finally a spinning whizzing winner from Ronnie Dooley slipping between the hands of Frank Pleszak gave the Moaners the 10-9 win. Still time for more, a lung busting last 10 minutes, locked at five all Paulo tapped home the Golden Goal to end tonight’s proceedings.
Great effort from all involved this evening a most enjoyable start to the season. Get yourselves down next week for more of the same.

Having a late call from my daughter in Poulton Le Fylde I had to miss both City's magnificent FA Cup win over Championship giants Rotherham United and the first Vets session of  the New Year. Thanks to all the guys who showed up and made such a good fist of it and, a special pat on the back to our guest writer for his report - back next week.....

Sunday 13th January 2019 : Really chuffed tonight to see  the return of the three teams format with 13 of the guys turning out. Great surprise this evening though was the appearance of that old Jocko, Steve Hart's son Graham joining the ranks. Steve was a regular member of my squad for quite a few years back in the day. Well the games kicked off with gusto tonight as The Young Guns set the pace with a number of fine wins on the trot. Anthony Graham led from the back prompting his young pretenders with the skill and precision not unlike me (ten years ago). Paul Holmes was rattling in the goals for fun and Rick Evans was having a cracker after his week in Fuerteventura. However that little run had to stop and it was Strollers who pulled them up in their tracks. After going 2-0 down the Young Guns success seemed unstoppable but Kelwyn had other ideas for the Strollers, he fired in a super long distance strike to set up a remarkable finish. After a number of chances Graham Levine eventually whacked in the equaliser and the run was over. Mary's Moaners followed by drawing their next game with the Young Guns as Ronnie Dooley made a mockery of "Scottish Strikers" joke to rattle in a quality finish, something he did on a number of occasions tonight. Paulo Garner whistled a couple of his long rangers past me to add to the one that Zsu Zsu Mastin surprised me with. Podders was strutting round like a man drunk on the success of his beloved Stockport County who breezed past mighty Truro yesterday in the FA Trophy 5-0. Chris Anthony couldn't quite find that goal glut from last week but he did play his part in a decent session for the Strollers as did Dave Brown, we'd call Dave steady Eddie if his name wasn't Dave! I managed a couple of half decent goals myself when I came out of goals for one game, this has inspired me to rejoin the gym tomorrow so you never know, I might manage two games next week. As for young Graham Hart, excellent start for the lad, scored some fine goals, tackled well and passed the ball around just like his dad used to. Maybe in spite of his knee replacements and knackered body Old Steve Hart may just surprise us with a impromptu appearance which bodes the questions - would he still squeeze into that old Hearts shirt, would he want to play in the same team as his English born son - would he last to complete a 5 minute game - who knows but he was a top player back in the day.

Sunday 20th January 2019 : Back to two teams with only 10 bodies putting themselves on the line for this weeks 5 a side clash. Mary's Moaners were joined by young Graham Hart whilst The Strollers recruited Anthony Graham from his depleted Young Guns. I have to say the standard of football played by the two sides tonight was exceptional. The two main games were nip and tuck affairs with some of the best passing seen for many a week. First rubber a tense affair, went to The Strollers 10-09 and this was followed by an equally tough encounter which Mary's won by the same score. A third game was fitted in to the last fifteen minutes but by then tired legs had set in and although The Strollers took it 10-08 it wasn't played to the same standard as the previous two. Outstanding performances came from many players but Kelwyn Whittaker stuck out as he weaved his magic in some wonderful solo dribbles and goals. The non stop Ronnie the Rocket Dooley and his equally endeavouring partner Podders covered every inch of the Sports Halls surface. A memorable strike from Paulo Garner made a mockery of his painful knee condition as it zipped past me into the top corner from distance. Graham Hart was the fulcrum of most of the Mary's attacks as he picked pass after pass to his team mates. Graham Levine never stopped in his search for those spectacular goals in spite of spraying the wall behind the net with a barrage of ballooners but the ones that hit the old onion bag were the ones that counted. Anthony Graham and Chris Anthony just got on with things quietly with purpose as did Zsu Zsu Mastin. Who knows where the old Cockney Hippie gets that energy from, what I'd give for a portion of it!!  As for tonight's show, take a bow fellers, it was a pleasure sharing the pitch with you.
More of the same next week guys and some of you boys get of your arses off them coaches and get down to Hyde Bank Road, just like Rick Pott did tonight - he may not be able to play at the moment but we always welcome his support.
