Bishopstoke 4-2 Burridge AFC

Saturday 23rd December
Bishopstoke Rec

Burridge lost to struggling Bishopstoke in a fiery festive fixture. If Cliff Richard is led to be believed, and anyone who may’ve poked Sue Barker has my full attention. Then Christmas is the time for mistletoe and wine and children singing Christian rhyme. If by that he means getting pissed out of your mind, trying to coerce woman into a grope at the office party. Then getting the nanny state to close down the school nativity play for being too true to the religious beliefs that have been indoctrinated into this old island for the past God how many years. Then Cliff, or Sir Cliff as his full title imbues - is indeed right.

Christmas is a shitstorm. It's when you eat and drink too much and argue with family you haven't seen since last year - because quite frankly, you cannot fucking stand them, nor they you. This game represented much the same thing. Yes, cards were exchanged, most of them of the red and yellow variety. Burridge have now received nineteen cautions and a dismissal this season. Yes sir, those referees just love 'em. Bishopstoke were two up at the break. Bryn Schwodler pulled one back straight afterwards. But he was having one of those days. Namely, he couldn't finish his cornflakes, let alone the goal scoring opportunities that fell to him.

Then it all went a bit Christmas TV. Meaning downhill. Burridge conceded a third, Greg Baker scored from the spot, skipper Kristian Hewitt was sent off then Bishopstoke got a fourth goal; forcing Burridge into all out attack. When their right back Jay Schwodler made a soiree into the opposition area, he made slight contact with the goalkeeper, whose histrionics suggested he'd been stabbed. This caused an aggrieved 'Stoke defender to hay-make the kisser of Schwodler. Starting a twenty-two man brawl that I'm sure Jesus would have been proud of. Had it been on the grounds of religious conversion.

4-4-2: S.Schwodler, J.Schwodler, P.Dyke, M.Sanderson, L.Sanderson, G.Baker, M.Reeves (J.Newman), J.Hewitt, K.Hewitt, B.Hutton (B.Rowe), B.Schwodler. Unused sub: S.Froud

Booked: J.Schwodler, M.Sanderson, L.Sanderson, G.Baker, J.Hewitt
Sent Off: K.Hewitt

Following my 9am pitch inspection this morning, I have decided to postpone this afternoons match between BTC and Burridge AFC. The match will now be played early in the new year. Regards.

New years eve 2006 breakdown.

kristian sicked himself. alot.

donna had to abandon the festivities to drive him home, not long after 01:00am.

i picked up a piece of cardboard from the floor with my mouth.

many people failed to pick up cardboard from the floor with their mouths.

we downed a lot of home made punch for failing to pick up cardboard from the floor, with our mouths.

the fratellis.

we missed the official countdown to new year, because jay couldn't get sky tv working.

'shoot the runner' was the first song played in 2007.

spoke to scott on the phone.

many of the group started to drop like flies.

luke snogged one of donnas' mates.

mark and i attended another party in the early hours and carried on drinking, then realized it was fast approaching 6am before returning.

white lines.

bryns' girlfriend sicked herself, and i walked in on her while she was naked.

luke gave helen a massage in bryns' bed.

returned to ranelagh as the birds were singing, to find the house in a state.

Mick Hucknall said...

Quote from Mr Dykes blog! So its okay for one ginger to call another ginger then.....

"The 2nd half started with the same vigor as the 1st but after 10 mins a mazey run from Hare's tricky forward produced Kaos in blues back line and the ball was slotted in from 6 yards. Them a freekick was given away on the right hand side and the ginger centre midfielder headed home unmarked (Mr Dyke's man!). "

just found it amusing

Oi Ginger Shut Up! said...

Can we have a few more at training this week. Numbers have been poor lately.
