Utter domination. We played pretty averagely and still handed out our biggest ever victory. The use of mind games before kick-off in making them wear a colour other than red ensured that they were rattled even before a ball had been kicked, and it only went downhill for the plucky islanders from there.
We spent pretty much the entire game pinging the ball around their penalty area, even occasionally pausing to put it into the net past a player who can only be called a goalkeeper because he was standing between the posts.
New signings George “the” Unitt and Andy “nickname” Harris continued their fine run of form, scoring 8 and 4 goals respectively. Sam Fox looked more like the man we’ve come to know and rely on, grabbing a completely unmemorable 6. I came out of goal for 5 minutes and got a ball to the balls for my trouble, so I guess I’ve learnt my lesson.
Tune in next week where old enemies are reunited, as Chris returns to the team and we play Mashari FC.
Goal of the game: We weren’t exactly short of contenders, but this week’s award goes to Ben’s first, as the sign that we knew we’d got the game sewn up (after about 20 minutes). Picking the ball up on the halfway line, he took a couple of steps forward, realised no-one was closing him down and just laced it into the net off the bar. Casual, simple, Dyslexics.
Scorers: George (8), Sam F (6), Andy (4), Moo (3), Ben (2), Tim, Josh
