Match Report ~ BAC 1 v Bretforton 4

Warm up

It was a sunny day for our match against top of the league Bretforton, especially ordered no less.  BAC started well today with a foray into the Bret D and in no time at all won a short corner.  This was well defended by Bret who were soon attacking the BAC goal.  New in goal this week was Kay Garston  who was filling the space nicely (not that she was fat or anything, just taller than our average goalie!). On with the match….

The day started quietly for BAC2 and the players assembled slowly on the pitch.  The Lydney players huddled inside the sports centre which stank of drains.  The BAC2 players were looking calm and relaxed, not a hangover between them, for that reason alone it was going to be an odd day.

The start of the game was delayed by a couple of minutes whilst one of the umpires suffered a pen emergency, his nibs were all dry.

Match Report ~ Redland UWE3 3 vs BAC2 4

Here on business

First match of the new year and BAC2 were away to Redland UWE.  Most of the team were moaning of Christmas excess but we were only sporting 1.5 hangovers, (the 0.5 comes from there being much debate as to whether one of our players was still drunk and therefore not hungover).

Warms up and standing around

This match was the rescheduled game previously cancelled due to a frozen pitch.  The players gathered in Failand for a mid afternoon start and it was already starting to get dark.

Pre-match preparation involved circling the area repeatedly looking for a parking spot, dressing up in winter hiking gear to make the long journey cross country to get to the pitch and finally organising search parties and sending out scouts to look for our umpire.
