Men’s 6th Grade Hanging Tough
They say time goes slowly up Byron way...well at Suffolk Park you’d never get a ‘soft yoker’ after boiling an egg for 3 minutes, as our 6th Grade Men’s team so cruelly found out on the weekend. Deprived of a stirring victory, against the table topping Suffolk Park, with the last kick of the game.
The boys arrived at Suffolk knowing they were under-manned (due to a Saturday wedding), looking a bit like ‘Dad’s Army’ with ankle and knee braces everywhere, limps, moans, but plenty of experience.
Most of us were silently thinking we were here for damage limitation against a side that had already scored 24 and leaked only 5. One Suffolk supporter even joked with us about our age as three teenagers hopped out of his car and started warming up.Read more...
