After a week off Nick returned last week in excellent form. Only losing one game he took the top spot on the day and managed to move himself up to 3rd in the league. Well done Mr Grumpy.
Andy is slowly moving up the table and after taking 4th spot last Sunday has now moved up to 4th in the league. Well done Andy.
The last game of the session was delayed as PC Paul swung into action. Donning his metaphorical policeman’s helmet he charged off down the street to break up some young scallywags who were mid fisticuffs. After calming the situation and giving the young pups a jolly good talking to Paul returned to play the final game of the day. Everyone was very impressed with Paul’s actions especially Kol, Andy and Will who destroyed Paul’s team 2-0.
The goal that wasn’t a goal or ”When scorecards go wrong”. For a brief moment last Sunday evening Will got onto the goal scorers table. Unfortunately this was very short lived as it was a scorecard error and he hadn’t actually scored. Will confirmed this during the evening with comments such as “are you sure I scored” and “I know I definitely didn’t”. One day Will, One Day!
PC Paul may be a super hero when it comes to sorting out ruffians and scallywags but he can’t seem to put a cross against a name on the score card. Must try harder Paul.
Adam may have won last weeks “Mix it Up” Session but Dean “Double Dean.... get in the back of net.... he’s on fire” Dent was the star of the show. Scoring a massive 15 goals with 4 hat tricks he just couldn’t miss. Is this a one off? Will he continue with his good form or will he slip into his “I can’t hit a thing” mode. We shall see later.
Kol was close behind on the goal scoring with an excellent 12 goals. He also became the first player this season to get all 5 goals in a game.
Mr Roger did enough to keep himself at the top of the table. Now leading by 9 points, he’s going to be tough to beat. Adam and Dean are close behind on 26 point, Kol is on 25 and Jack on 22. Its going to be a very close season indeed.
Jon had the most spectacular dismount of the day. Although Jon has good riding skills he seemed to have forgotten the basics such as don’t use your head to cushion your fall. The dull thud of skull against concrete immediately stopped play and everyone crowded round to stare at Jon’s misfortune.
Us boys were useless in this situation. Most of us giggled, some checked his bike and there was a lot of talk of “That’s one for the hall of Pain”. Luckily Jayne was on hand to take control. Sticky plasters at the ready, Jon was soon cleaned up and repaired.
What a great start to the season!. 10 players, new balls, Jaffa cakes and a whole lotta fun.
Mr Roger had a great start to the season coming first with a clear six points ahead of the rest. Young Jack put in an excellent performance coming in second but it was close. Jack, newbie Jon and Andy were only separated by goal difference for 2nd, 3rd and 4th spot.
Although Adam couldn’t stay for the full session he still managed to get 6th spot, winning 3 out of his 4 games. Well done Sir. Mild mannered Will put in an excellent performance. His first time in a full mix it up session saw some nice blocking and some excellent air shots. Swapping between bikes seemed to be his downfall. As soon as he gets his own bike he will definitely be a force to be reckoned with.
PC Paul made his debut and although a bit shaky to start with managed to score a goal. Unfortunately the goal was immediately disallowed what with being a “shuffle” and all that. Undeterred Paul battled on and soon got hit first match play goal. Well done Paul it was a cracker.
Although Nick and Kol scored the most goals on the day, this did not reflect on their final positions. Kol only managed to come in 7th place and Nick came in 9th. Kol blamed his poor performance on Young Jack constantly offering Jaffa cakes out when he was trying to organised the games. Speaking off the record Kol said, “The little f****r really does annoy me at times. I mean really annoys me....for @*@!s sake Jack stop it enough is enough.......just stop laughing......one day I will @*^@ing kick you up the *@!*&@ing ......”, and speaking on the record Kol said “He’s a lovely lad and does make me laugh”.
Will we see the return of Big Red today? And will Mr Roger keep his place at the top. Can’t wait....see you all at 2.
Well that’s the month of dressing up over and done with. With the ECB Dappers and Belles cruise followed by Halloween people just don’t seem to have been themselves recently. It must be time to shake off the cobwebs, bury some old ghosts, put the skeleton back in the closet and play some polo.
Today sees the start of the Winter season. Wrap up warm. That big ball of burning stuff in the sky is deceptively cold at this time of year.
More newbies will be joining us this season including Will and Jon who made a guest appearance at the end of last season. Newbie PC Paul will be playing for the first time today so lets not be too hard on him.
After Nick and Big Red’s epic battle for the number 1 spot in the summer league will they be able to maintain their form or will new faces climb to the top. Will Andy find his form?, Will Adam be stuck at work?, Will Dean stay fixed?, Will Nick do an elegant dismount?, Will Young Jack ever stop laughing? and Will Will? Just a few of the questions that need answering.
