First Outing for the Old Knackers
Old Boys but new kit
A great turn out for the first fixture of the season against a keen Crowborough side.
So keen in fact that they turned up nearly 2 hours before kick off to "Stretch and warm up"
Despite it being the first game this season for some, for others it was the second game in as many days (Benny!) and that may have influenced his decision making when dealing with the Ref!
The achievement of avoiding a yellow card throughout the game, and the writer not getting injured (again) was only eclipsed by the sight of Andy Ward gracefully galloping down the pitch to run in a try under the posts. It was at least half the length of the pitch although I am sure it is longer in the telling now!
He certainly deserved Man of The Match.
Despite missing some of the more skilful players in our ranks we quickly dominated the game and those who were missing may struggle to break in to the squad (unless we are short of numbers!)
Credit to Crowborough however, who battled on until the end and gave us a game right to the death but spirited defence and aggressive attack won the day.
It was a great outing for a great team. Roll on the next fixture!
