Magnificent Sevens continue form away from home

08 December 2018, 14:30, Reading University Sports Park

Men's 7s 4 - 0 Phoenix & Ranelagh Men's 3s

It was the usual joshing banter about the pre match information that belied the optimistic feeling within the magnificent Sevens on Saturday. The early optimism was slightly dented however, when it became apparent that midfield tyro Tyser had a stonking hangover....

The early signs were good though, with midfield actually stringing some passes together. The deadlock was deservedly broken by Dribbler Venabales (sic) who smashed a shot into the roof of the net, although he did admit (very quietly) in the bar afterwards that he topped it....

The second came from a slick passing movement started (surprisingly) by skipper Spittles feeding the sparklingly effervescent Royer who proceeded to put Shambles Shirley through, who, once he had huffed and puffed in keeping he ball in, proceeded to slam an excellent ball into the D for Rob McGrigor to calmly slot the ball home with precision - obviously he had noted  the abuse that Dribbler had received from the week before and decided that was not for him.....

The other notable event took place when Dribbler Venabales  beat 4 players in midfield, was approaching the D and then (similar to the week before) decided that he was in fact playing football and stood on the ball.....

The second half saw the vital third being slotted home from a trademark Shambles Shirley well hit shot from a short, and the game was finished off by a hard working Elliott from a metre or so....

This was an enjoyable game where all the team contributed, mentions in dispatches to Dribbler Venabales, Mike Image (who made an excellent impersonation of Timmy Martin) and man of the match Christophe Royer.

The day continued well with a good natured Curry and a record attendance at the Hawks Xmas bash....

With such an emphatic end to the halfway mark of the season, Messrs Darby, Wells and Stoker must fear for their place.....
