Did you hear the one about the luxury Burridge apartment? No? Well, it’s a three up and five down. Just make sure you don’t go upstairs, or the ceiling will come crashing down, and you with it. There among the debris of the five down, medical attention will be necessary to see if the injured party is of sound body and mind. Of course, he won’t be. Not after a shock like that. On recovery it will be advisable to hold an enquiry of investigation to discover how such a disaster could occur. The builders might want to inspect the foundations. It isn’t clear if they’re made from concrete or crayon. If it is the latter, it was unable to portray a pretty picture. No, sir. This game was no John Constable, no Renoir. If it were to be depicted on canvass, it would surely be done so by the late Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky - meaning it to be abstract, shocking and open to interpretation.
It started so well for Burridge. After an hour they were three goals up thanks to Bryn Schwodler, Kristian Hewitt and Ben Hutton. But when BTC scored via a corner, doubts began to surface. One BTC goal became two - from another corner kick – as Burridge seemed rather susceptible to crosses in their penalty area. Before long BTC had drew level from yet another cross and could and perhaps should have gone onto win in normal time. As the game went into extra time Burridge went down 4-3, then levelled through Jaimie Hewitt. But the damage had already been done and the cracks were starting to show. BTC’s three goal come back had rocked Burridge and they claimed their place in the next round after yet another cross was converted for the winner.
