The lost men return to bag 6 goals. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. high tempo (3 subs and yet at least 4 players trying to exit the pool for subbing each goal!). Pretty structured display although a bit of a lack of movement and a reluctance to shoot was a concern at one point, but as ever a good nature game with the Old Whits crew. We even thought the ref was ok. Sean lasted the whole match and Dave never chipped at the ref. (despite calls for goal line technology). Has Avondale turned over a new leaf?
Croydon - Avondale = 13 - 9
Over 35 League
The instructions were clear : game at 9pm at Whitgift school in Croydon.
10 of the finest players among the large contingent of Over 35 clearly followed those instructions , one (without naming names..........Second Team Captain everyone?) decided that a swim in an empty Putney pool was a more appropriate way to spend the evening.
