Ignatians 1st XI 2 Salvatorians 1
League - 11/11/17

Scorer: Conor O'G (2)

Man of Match: Tom Martin
Muppet: Jake 'Grizzly Watson

After the trials and tribulations of a trek
to the dark remotes of Kent last week the
team came back home for a Middlesex cup game
vs Salvos who had previously beaten us a few
weeks earlier in the league. A number of
players still struggled to make the 12:45
meet time and the way that the fine fund is
building up the end of season bash could
include a fortnight away in Marbs.

The match prep continued in it's normal vane
with Tom berating Ren for anything that he
could think of in an attempt to inspire him
to greatness, I guess reverse psychology has
it's uses. Tom also felt the need to share
some of his bizarre sexual exploits that
somehow involved dogs, dolls and a bacon
sandwich. How lucky the youth of today are to
have such a fine upstanding role model to
guide them towards puberty and beyond.

The pre match speech from Dave involved a
plea for revenge and a need to cut out any
fancy footwork around our box. As soon as the
game started Ren decided to ignore all pleas
and opted for a Cruyff turn that led to the
oppo’s first shot on goal. Fortunately for us
Tom was around to have a little whisper in
his ear.

The oppo's main tactic was to lump it up to
their giant 6ft 5 striker but on a couple of
occasions I managed to beat him in the air
thanks to J O'Bs handily placed ladder.
Against all of the advice in the current
climate the oppo ignored the dangers of
dementia and continued their airial
bombardment. I myself was booked in for my
test but I can’t remember if I’ve been or

Finally we settled into the game and were
rewarded when lovely build up play saw Tom
feed Alex in the box only for him to be
poleaxed from behind for a penalty that Conor
duly finished with aplomb. 1-0.

It soon became 2-0 when a call into the box
found Ren being held in an MMA a strangle
hold. The ref ignored our pleas for a penalty
and waved play on until after some verbals
from the oppo saw us rewarded with a dubious
free-kick that should have been indirect at
best. With no guidance from the ref Conor
picked a nice position just outside the box
and curled a shot beyond the despairing dive
of their keeper.

Tom then decided that he wanted to mark every
oppo player other than his own resulting in
his unmarked player guiding a deft shot
passed Ryan. 2-1.

Half Time came and went but with the man
mountain beginning to tire we managed to
control the 2nd half comfortably apart from a
couple of last ditch blocks from Dan & Jack
and a free kick that Ryan confidently let hit
our bar so as not to get his gloves dirty.
Revenge was ours and a quarter final beckons.

MOM was Tom half for his on the pitch
performance and half for his baiting of Ren.
Muppet went to Grizzly Adams who after his
epic 5 month trip around the world managed a
paltry 20 mins as a not so super sub. Subbed
on then subbed off lol. Some serious training
needed I think.

Back to the league next week vs Southgate
Olympic;who sit at the top of the table,
where we seriously need to add to our meagre
1 point so far. Onwards and upwards.
