Met another Old Norsemen last week, Terry Mellis who still keenly interested in the club and sends his regards to his old friends excluding the Vamps player who wrecked his leg nothing changes.
The 1st XI made the short trip to Old Stationers expecting a mud bath, but a good pitch awaited them, we were 2-0 up within five minutes and went on to win 5-1. We still picked up a couple of stupid cautions which will cause suspension problems later in the season, when will they ever learn.
This win takes us to the Top of the table for the first time this season, a good start but plenty of tough games to come.
The Res XI have had a run of tough fixtures, had another this week and lost to NUFC Oilers for the second time 5-0, with 3 of their goals coming in the last 5 minutes, so not such a bad loss against a strong team.
The 3rd XI were away in Tenerife celebrating the Stag Weekend for Fran D'Annunzio. Enough said.
The 4th XI lost a top of the table battle with Old Parks 5s 2-3, a tough game but after going 0-3 down due to a couple of bad Goalkeeping errors, bounced back and deserved the draw, but could not find the net for a third time.
The 5th XI had a great 6-0 win against the Hill to go top of Minor North Div 2 and look like putting in a strong challenge for promotion.
The 6th XI had a heavy defeat against AP at home 0-7 and are suffering a lack of a Goalkeeper following the serious knee injury to Dave Stephenson whose out of football for over a year with a broken kneecap and badly torn ACL.
The 7th XI had no game this week due to Members not having paid their Subs.
