White Wednesday

(Pictured) A well attended Burridge training session during the heady days of 2009.

2 is how many games Burridge have played in last 9 weeks.
7 is number of league games they've played since 31 Aug.
17 is the amount of league games they've left to play.
16 is how many Saturdays left before goalposts come down.
-1 is the daytime temp forecast for Thursday and Friday.
0 is the chances of playing this weekend.

NB Training is off on Wednesday 6th January because Wildern Leisure Centre is trapped under a centimetre of snow.

Reaction, so far, to 'White Wednesday's' cancelled training session has been muted:

"Okay mate," said penalty taker, Greg Baker, clearly irritated that the office hotties had decided to wear winter clothes to the office. "Thanks for letting me know."

"Ok dude," said centre-back, Paul Dyke, straining under the weight of tax returns on his desk.

Although player of 2009, Kev Willsher, was slightly more animated: "Nightmare!" Said Kev. "Can't see us playing for another couple of weeks.

Upcoming scheduled fixtures:

Jan 9 Home to Netley Central
Jan 16 Home to Wellow
Jan 23 Home to London Airways
Jan 30 Away to Bush Hill at Green Park

Saints game is off already this Saturday, so it's almost certain that Burridge's will also be postponed. Get yourself down the pub.

I can't believe you're letting a bit of the white stuff stop training. Can't you all go round to someone's living room and practice headers?

What will you do with the unaccustomed leisure time? Can you practice the half time talks?

Chandeliers get broken when you play football indoors, LLB.

MDF - After pitching chess to a few friends and getting frosty looks, I propose Subbuteo. That or - seeing as Burridge neighbours have got a new dart board - arrows, or throwing as we call it, to take up our new found spare time.

Looking back (bringing back the blog)

I haven't posted here since 2012 – that’s five years of not blogging. The blog is/was about Burridge AFC, the football team I played f...
