Scratchy 7's ship 8 goals in Reading Romp

14 October 2017, 13:00

Men's 7s 4 - 8 Reading Rovers

This game will be remembered for the unusual occurrance of the normally ultra competitive Venables downing stick and telling his team to  let "him"  (the Extremely talented 20 year old who was quite clearly not a league 8 player) do his thing as he ran rings round us at 7-2 up........clearly Richard was not a happy bunny.....lets hope his early season hot break fills his tank again...

This was a hard day at the office. We had not long welcomed goalie Theo into the team and managed to let the oppo run 3 goals in before we had got into a sweat.....

Eventually some order was restored, and at the half time break 1-5 down, we tried to mark the other very useful but less youthful CH out if the game, and with limited success we actually won the second half.

Those two players, our lack of organisation (due to new players and poor established players), and 3 soft goals lost us this game. Man of the match Theo was assured that next time he put the pads on for us we would protect him rather better.....

Come on 7's, we can do better than this.....weve no Venables or Image this week so we must make up for that with some semblance of organisation and effort.....

Good debuts from Christophe Royer and Richard Tyser.
