SPARTANS 2-1 BURRIDGE AFC

Saturday 14th October
Green Park, Millbrook

Burridge went down to their second league defeat of the season. Whack, whack whack is a sound not unfamiliar to the area of Millbrook, but the recipient of hefty blows was not the fallen body of an innocent bystander but the Burridge crossbar - as Spartans hit it three times in the opening ten minutes. So, it was no great surprise when Spartans took the lead. Centre-half Paul Dyke gave chase to a runaway Spartans forward but it was in vain.

Spartans second goal seemed highly dubious. Not only did it appear offside but the ball was also removed from goalkeeper Sam Schwodler's grasp. But, considering the charmed life the Burridge uprights had been leading maybe this was simply luck evening itself out. Not to be out done Burridge scored themselves. Speedy little Lee Fielder put his opposing number under pressure sufficient enough for him to bury the ball past his own keeper, and somehow resisted
the temptation of embracing him in celebration.

Such a devastating finish surely deserved so much as a ruffle of mane or pat on the bottom; much like poor Brian Laws of Nottingham Forest, who on scoring past his own in the 1989 F.A. Cup Semi Final was greeted by the oncoming John Aldridge of Liverpool who playfully disturbed Laws' obedient centre parting with the loving gusto of a flea grooming ape. The second half was a lively affair- but neither team were able to add to their tally. Burridge had paid the price for a slow start.

4-4-2: S.Schwodler, M.Sanderson, P.Dyke, K.Willsher, J.Schwodler (L.Sanderson), J.Newman, S.Froud, M.Reeves, B.Hutton, B.Schwodler, L.Fielder (P.Andrews). Unused subs: G.Baker, J.Hutton

RAGE, RAGE, RAGE, RAGE, RAGE! I found it extremely difficult to control myself after that f****** refs performance on Saturday. I was so close to losing control of my mind again, but luckily i had the Xanax and vicodin to calm me down. Please don't make me play The Four Horseman again!

Oi, Shafer. You can't threaten the Burridge AFC boys with your 'four horsemen' talk. I've been keeping a close eye on you of late, and whatever you start, I aim to finish....again.

Det.Alex 'don't get me' Cross.

Ah detective Cross, what a pleasant surprise. So good to hear a familiar voice.

Keep up the good detective work, but don't waste your time on me, i am far too smart and i will keep escaping your slipstream. I would hate for something to happen to those lovely kids of yours!

See you soon buddy!

Shafer, you rogue. Kindly return to the pages of the holiday novel where you belong.

We at Burridge are a highbrow bunch, so if it isn't Kirk Voggenut or Jean-Paul Sartre, you may fail to gain attention.

Although thank-you for showing consistent interest in all things Burridge.

Vospers this weekend. Remember, they don't like it up 'em.
