Bossed the midfield All Day Long
The first thought for the Satuarday’s game comes on Thursday evening, when the team sheet gets sent out. Hmm who’s in the side who’s in my defence, I look oh good I`ve got 5 defenders, my mind can now relax.
Friday, hard day at work plastering a very large ceiling, which my shoulder will not thank me for in the morning. The only benefit of the job is I`ll be finished early.
Home and having a cup of tea at 3:50, the phone rings, Its Ken (Ken has been a mate for over 40 years)
K: what you up to,
M: not a lot, cup of tea and chillin,
K: fancy a beer,
M: Ken its Friday and I`ve got hockey tomorrow,
K: Just a couple of early ones, we wont be late.
Right, drinking with Ken is always an early one, that never seems to end (there are loads of stories to be told) and always leads to me being extremely wasted and completely righting off the next day. So after a long conversation we come to an understanding.
M: Ok two pints and I`m going home.
True to my word, well nearly, two pints and a cup of coffee, then home.
Saturday, As normal up at 6 a bit of breakfast and Netflix, I was right my shoulder isn`t happy, some tender loving care will sort that out. Get dressed and walk the dog. Back from the walk my mind turns to hockey, Kit bag sorted, stretching ect. Done I`m ready. 10 0`clock I`m bored now, oh hold on Sarah is going for breakfast with the Ladies 2s, Hmmm might gate crash.
12:15 I say my goodbyes and head off, the hour and a half journey up north was a quiet and lonely one. As I was reaching the historic town of Kings Lynn, I took a wrong turn and went through a large brick archway that can only be described as Kings Lynn`s answer to the Arc de Triomphe.
I arrive at the complex known as Lynnsport, now this is an impressive complex that caters for every sport, I believe they even have a Pool, Darts and dominos centre, oh and the changing room had a sauna in it. How good is that, ( just a thought Long Road).
Oh yeah, we played a game of hockey against the Pelicans. The game was a hard fought battle with South having the better chances, but unable to finish their chances. Everyone worked hard throughout the game giving 100%. Score 2-2
There were a few candidates for MOM notably Mikey, Hardworking and tenacious. But the vote went to James for not turning into the incredible Hulk and getting carded, I even saw him shake someone`s hand during the game hmmm new James! could be.
LOM was a bit easier votes went to Harry C for being so needy, but the winner was Bhav for an awesome aerial that went 20 foot up an 5 forward.
