Mystic Meg (Steve Elliott) gets it wrong as pretty Hawks lose

21 February 2015, 10:00, Banbury Road North (Near)

Men's 6s 0 - 3 Oxford Men's 6s

Whilst chewing the cud in the bar afterwards, skipper Spittles could only think it was all a Mourinho esq conspiracy to ruin his (and Van Missie's) birthday. He had (mostly) watched his team containing a handful  of bright young players play rings round Oxford for the first 20 minutes, fail to score and then concede on a quick break....half time team talk asked for more oomph and same skill, and we delivered the oomph, and still conceded two more....

Oxford's Matt Neville thought our hockey between the 23's was lovely to watch, but smugly commented that our strikers couldn't hit a barn door, whilst his had 3 or 4 shots and scored 3 goals....that pretty much summed up the game. Youngsters Spittles jnr, Patel and man of the match Toby Maclachlan all played some great hockey but it was just one of those days.

Other than that, Adrian Higgins had another excellent performance...many thanks to Hutts and Geoff for umpiring.

Mystic Meg later revealed that he had us down for three dead certs for more wins, then revealed that Oxford had been one of them...Lets hope that Mystic's (aka Steve Elliott) 

crystal ball is cleaner next time!
