parent: We are football (soccer) gods!

Match report, as requested by Skid-meister, or was it Kid? Anyway…

Well, we could have gone one up after about 19 seconds alla Arsenal! But all Southampton it was saved. However, before long, our pressure, and our tactics of playing the ball up to the speedy skilful 17 year old forward (alla Liverpool) paid off, as he netted before half time, slightly offside, but who cares!

About halfway through the second half, from a corner, the opposition equalised, and it was back to square one. However, we knew we could win it. I hit the crossbar, we had a shot cleared off the line, and about 10 minutes before the end, we were to see something spectacular. Following a high through ball, speedy youngster raced on to the end of it, got underneath it, and lifted it over the out coming keeper. The crowd, and players could by watch in awe as it lobbed the keeper, bounced, and hit the back of the net. Magnifique! We kept the lead, the kid could have had a hat-trick had he not been pulled down by the keeper on a one-on-one in the dying minutes (duly receiving a red card and causing a scuffle between ref, players, subs and coaches). The resulting free-kick went JUST wide, but it was all insignificant as the final whistle blew, and Guéret reached the final of La Coupe de la Creuse!

A piss-up inevitably followed, starting with 2 bottles of champagne in the dressing rooms, a few beers at the ground, and then lots of Port at a the (Portugese) coach’s hosue!

Mighty Muriels Wedding! Perfect Pendle College! Grand Guéret!

A good season, boys! We merit a beer and collective hugs! Well played!
