Thanks Esky Good to see your still stirring up the 35/2s Finally the Over 45's comp is underway & the Winston Hills "Gummy Bears" taking the points in the very first game Holroyd 1 v Gummys 5. Unfortunately Holroyd could only field 10 players & even though its 45's its still way to hard to play short, don't know if it was because of the school hols., a mix up of rounds or they are just short of players. Perhaps someone from the team can let us know if they are still looking for players. Anyway the game started with the Gummys on the attack & plenty of posession, the Holroyd Keeper & woodwork getting a real workout. 25 mins. gone, still no score, Gummys with all the ball & the Holroyd players looking pretty tired though still having a go. Just on the 30 min. mark Gummys finally put one away which opened up our play a bit though no more goals in the half. End of the break saw the Holroyd lads a little reluctant to come out from the shade and a couple of them talking about Over 55's. Gummys picked up where the first half ended with most of the posession and using the ball well putting in three more well worked goals. Holroyd now playing a 6-2-1 formation managed to slip their lone striker past our napping defence and finished off well leaving our fill in Keeper wondering what had just shaved his left ear. A quick reply goal from the Gummys finshed off the scoring though the Holroyd Keeper was kept busy untill the final whistle. Was good to play a game without the whinging & carry on, hope the Holroyd team are able to get more players to games in future PS. Tony, it must have been a lonely wait at Masonic for the 3pm KO. Round 2 is this Sunday!!!

Pendo 2 us 0. Pendo good midfield, same old side from 35/3s last year (and the year before, and the year before etc.) with 2 or 3 new guys. Look like the side to beat. although if we could take some of our chances we might give them a run. Pendos last week result was against a team short of players (so they say?) and they wouldnt tell fibs to us, would they. All in all hard game played in very good spirit and looking forward to next game.

Gummys had a big win over Stanes Stanes in desperate need of a couple of experienced players to hold the ball. If any one is interested in joining them let us know on here or contact Godfrey through Greystanes club Won't report on the game exept that even Esky bagged one and Slugger got 8

Pendle Hill are basically the same side as they have been for several years. The only additional player this year is the Cougar who returned to the fold from Winston Hills. I have known these guys for years and a nicer and fairer bunch of guys you couldn't meet. Just want to play with their mates and have a few Ales after the game and a chat!
Realise that we live in the real world, not an ideal one.
mate thats what it is all about a few beers & a few more beers.
hopefully greystanes can find a few more boys to join them & become a bit more competitive & stay around for the year because they are there for the same reason. but its a bit hard when your getting that many past you.
ps the cougar could come back to the fold for a dozen teams in the comp.
