Afraid to say I was absent in France this weekend with some old and some very old Norsemen, entirely thanks to our great club for without it none of us would have ever met, quite a testament to friendships which are of over 50 years standing in some cases and making the effort of trying to turn this ship around worthwhile.
Do not know any details of matches played this weekend, the 1st XI halted a long losing streak with a very well earned draw against OW Citizens. I hear rumours of a possible return of a couple of former players which would strengthen them for the second half of the season. A tribute at this stage to Os the skipper, he has had a very difficult task and has remained calm and upbeat during our bad run good luck for the rest of the season Os.
The Reserves cup game was postponed the 3rd XI lost at home 3-0 to Old Parks, it seems if goal machine Danny does not score then the goals dry up.
The 4th XI continued their good form with a win over The Hill 6thXI.
The 5th XI ost to Old Parks and the 7th XI had a good win against Ally Pally.
Next week we play our last games before the winter break, the 1st XI are home to Broomfield, a bit of support plus a drink seems a good alternative to Christmas shopping.
