Cup defeat knocks Christmas stuffing out of Red men

Old Wimbledonians 3 PFFC 2 (cup)

Will, 16 December 2012


The previous match against Old Wimbledonians had been a no show due to a clerical error by fixture secretary Will, who possibly should have paid more attention to his dates than fluttering his eyelashes at the gaffer.

It would be nice to be able to remove this particular match from history, take it, shred it and stick in the recycling; pat the fixture secretary on the bum say “There's a good girl, how about making me a nice cup of tea and don’t forget the jammy dodgers” but you can’t do that these days. It’s the 21st century; this type of behaviour is not acceptable any more.

In short we played badly. We were lucky to walk off with a 3-2 defeat. Matt scored one and James got the other. The pitch was a horror show, pancake mixture which sapped the legs and the enthusiasm. My memory has blanked most of it out, thankfully. Not our finest hour.
