Sunday 9th April
Here at Burridge blog towers we've heard many an excuse over the years; 'got a nasty case of the hives on my nether regions boss, 'have to take missus to Wickes to fit out our new Summer house' and such like piffle. So when boozy Dave Hopkins rang up Maurice's step son Richie, to say he wasn't playing, we called foul play!
Something about 20 ambulances chasing 100 fire engines in his noggin. The boy doesn't have any previous, but needless to say he was taking pelters in the dressing room. Kristian Hewitt sat in a darkened corner with clenched fists. He'd been looking forward to his day trip on the outer field, but Hopkins and his boozy antics kept him locked up his penalty area cell - with no room mates.
Burridge snitch Jay Schwodler wasted no time in grassing the Hopkins child up to new Saturday gaffer Pete Lyons. Who, apparently on hearing the news (keeper couldn't make afternoon game due to hangover) was aghast; sources close to Blog HQ say Lyons is still open mouthed in astonishment at the level of light weightedness not seen since our mid-nineties teenage hey-days.
Had Hopkins ran into Sienna Miller and Kate Moss for a bit of the old in-out, we'd gladly admonish the lad. But, for having the spunk to call in sick sees the Hopkins child loose all of his man points. Get well soon Dave. Anyway, as for the game; Andy Lovett hit across goal from the right and Bryn Schwodler hit home low and hard into the gaping net about mid-way through the second half. Get in there you beauty!
