ECB Management were sitting in the bar at Melville after Saturdays Premier clash with last year's Northern League winners and Rossco happened to mention the time Govie (Steve Gove) a striker of some note, missed the bus in Paeroa on our way to play Tauranga City.   The bus travelled 10 minutes down the road before anyone realised Govie was missing.   Jez did he look witless when we came back to get him.


Well ................ oh dear, on Saturday Rossco needed to finish his beer just as we had all got up to get on the bus to go home.   As Rossco had bought the round he needed to finish every drop.   So we all got on the bus ........ driver says "anyone not here put your hand up ................... silence ................. off we go then.  
We only got out of the carpark and down the drive when Heinz Willy says "where's Rossco?".   Bl.............. norah ..........we haven't .............we might have ..............oh well never mind.   Can you picture this rather robust older gentleman jumping the fence running as fast as he can, one arm waving like a windmill, the other speed dialling someone in the bus to advise he hadn't taken his seat!!   The driver stopped to grab his camera but by then Rossco had rushed past him to take his seat, mumble, mumble, mumble.   Oh well Greengrass it happens in 3's, next time Ngaruawahia,  same again eh mate, be aware.   (Name supplied but withheld)
