Sunday 23rd April - St Georges Day
In the sticks
Good Morning Blogmiesters. I bring you news of another blood and guts performance from the Burridge AFC. If it's your bag to witness flamboyant ball juggling then sling your hook down the seal pen in Marwell at feeding time, because Burridge isn't the scene for performing tricks. The Burridge scene is all about the "oommpphhh" and the "getting mean," and in the words of Clint Eastwood as the outlaw Jessie Wells (or whatever his name was) "Sometimes things get rough, and you've just got to get mean - mad dog mean and duke it out."
Well thanks Clint, but here in the Burridge scene we know plenty of that already, so turn tail and mind your own. If I want your opinion, it'll be regarding what to expect when tending to orang-utans. Anyway, the first half was tighter than Eva Longeria's arse cheeks. Then - in the second half - the referee got a little bored. "D'you know what gets right up my nose?" he moaned in the general direction of Dykey. "People like you telling me what to do from sixty yards!"
Well, Mr Referee. Do you know what gets up my nose? Well, I can't tell you - my Mum reads this, but beside that I'll tell you. What gets up my nose is referees like you making poor decisons not seen since Gerard Houllier decided to shell out on Djimi Traore. Now listen, I know Mark Sanderson pretty well, and when he says he got the ball, he got the ball. But the referee said penalty. Step forward the fall guy: Kristian Hewitt, springing to his right and palming away - justice is done!
West Meon did however take the lead. The ball was looped to the far post and guided home from point plank range into an empty net. With a quarter of an hour, Burridge showed their resolve. Bryn Schwodler cut back perfectly from the left to his elder brother Jay. Just as he was about to shout' "How d'you like them apples Mozzer,"he was taken from behind - not for the first time, eh Jay? Up stepped Rick Allan, and did he miss? did he eff! So a point a piece, and a good shift put in by the Burridge.
4-4-4: K.Hewitt, M.Sanderson, P.Dyke, K.Willsher, L.Sanderson, R.Bryant (J.Schwodler), R.Allan, S.Burnet, B.Schwodler, P.Andrews (B.Wilson), A.Lovett (B.Wilson)
PS WELL DONE BAKER TWO BIRDS, YOU'RE BETTER THAN ME BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T END UP ON A DRIP.
