On the eve of rememberance day some trench spirit was required.
Knutsford in their muddy trench faced the concrete fortification of
a strong congleton team with all their machine guns blazing.
Over the top first was Liam vs Adrian's big guns. Liam took the
first in a tie break but succumbed to length and width from Adrian
and the pressure was too much for our man who lost 1-3 and fell
only a third the way across no mans land. Chris over the top next
vs Lyndon s guns and exactly the same result. With 2 men down
Things were getting desperate and we were looking to perry to keep
the match alive. it was looking like perry was going down , at 0-2
he looked buried but managed to get up off the floor and drag
himself further to chris,s trench by taking the third 9-1. Chris
regained control and finished our man off 3-1. So match lost, how
many points could we get off the last 2? Both glen and risley over
the top together and we Nearly both made it but Risleys legs went
in the 5th and he fell on top of congletons trench!! Glen 8-3 up in
his 5th managed to let it slip and he found himself pulled back to
8-7. A skid boast from the back saw our man stretch and lunge to
nick the frame his racket and dribble over the tin. His oppo,
dejected, finally concede the match and glenn plunged in with his
bayonet to give Knutsford their only win of the night.
Man of the match to glen, although it was taken away due to best
prize of worst shirt!
Some more trench spirit required for next week chaps.
