Unhappily there are certain rules which must be observed in writing match reports. One is that you musn't exceed 65 letters in the title and we are encouraged to create a title which catches the reader's attention. Thus as Billy Connolly might say try and make it windswept and interesting.

On Saturday the men's 2's played Amersham or to give the opposition their full title (which is of course only polite) Amersham and Chalfont Hockey Club (hereinafter in this report to be known as  AaCHC). I have therefore been constrained in what I want to say in the title as "Amersham and Chalfont Hockey Club" actually consumes half the permitted letter limit - if you take into account spaces - which the letter count does. So I apologise that the title is neither windswept nor interesting and you may have noticed that it is also incomplete but thank you for reading this report anyway.

Another rule which must be observed is that there must be nothing offensive or abusive in the report and it certainly is wholly unacceptable to use swear words of any sort. Normally untroubled by such strictures, I must confess that this week compliance with that reasonable requirement has been extraordinarily limiting. So this report is really very dull and not at all what I really wanted to say.

The men's 2's played rather poorly in the first half despite having also done so the previous week against Wallingford and having committed not to do so again. However they did and were jolly well 0-3 down after 25 minutes. Their manager was rather upset with the boys who had been a bit naughty. The boys then appeared to understand they might be scolded at half time and seemed to try a bit harder. Dan Bradley even scored a goal.

At half time the manager said they hadn't done what they had promised to do before the game and he became very red faced and a bit cross.

In the second half the chums played a lot better and Lewis Jowett scored another goal and they huffed and puffed a lot before everyone went to sleep again and AaCHC were given another goal and took all the points.

Oh Dear and Bother.

Not the best day and I'm wondering how it could have been any worse.

Thanks to Vicki Hearn for the photos.
