Masters Round 4 – vs Wilston Grange
A newer, more confident Masters team leapt out of the gates this week with instant results. This was also the week that a late withdrawal by Kanga would mean him failing to reach the club milestone of 3 consecutive games and the supremely fit Craig made his debut for the club, making an immediate impact and bringing a physicality that would provide the seldom heard before sounds that come with the clash of muscle on cellulite. Also, in a pre-game ceremony, Frances would finally be presented with his Appreciation award from last season. The same award that would later be found in the club change rooms a week later, therefore earning him an automatic nomination for the “Lack of Appreciation of the Appreciation” award. A rare honour indeed. Floater also turned up for his finest and only half of football for the season.
Despite jumping them early, Wilston Grange would rally in the second quarter making a game of it and frustrating the Sharks. A tense half time huddle saw Ado & Cuddles exchange a few choice words but if nothing else it was a reflection on the passion and desire we had to win.
Big Fish was again influential placing the ball at will and was ably supported by Nicko who showcased his continued improvement by running and bouncing on occasion, sometimes at the same time.
Mary was good despite being hampered by a leg injury, severely effecting his ability to run at pace and jump. Presumably, this is an injury he’s carried since childhood.
Bic & Dooley continued their miserly partnership down back in a combination set to thrill the fans and please the ladies alike, Bic in possibly a Best on Ground performance.
2 great goals in this game. Rusty doing a sweaty tango around two opponents before goaling under pressure. A goal that pleased the stalwart to no end. The great thing about Rusty’s celebrations is that with his fingers the way they are, everybody on the team has the opportunity to high five him at the same time. The 2nd “Goal of the Millenium” contender came from perennial club favourite Igor in a running goal that started on the half back flank. How far did I run? Let’s just say that I had to be stopped halfway to have my passport stamped.
Peter May was good after making a fashionably late appearance. Yeronga Pete gave plenty of dash despite being forced to carry extra tattoos into the game and Haema after missing an early sitter, made amends by marking a certain goal for Ado’s on the line, such was our intensity to get involved.
A comfortable 6 goal win to the Sharks.
