Match Report ~ BAC2 1 vs Old Bristolians3 2

Ceri having to wait in the car park

Todays clash was the highly anticipated BAC2 vs OB3s.  In the previous 2 meetings OB3s have dished out a thumping and BAC2 were keen to salvage some points from this 3rd encounter of the season.  At this stage in the season BAC2 are realistically fighting for a good mid table showing in the league, however OB3’s are competing for the leagues top place so this match means a lot to them.

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.

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.

Record turnout for the Supporters club

So BAC2 were home at Abbeywood ready to fend off Thornbury2. No one could remember the score the last time the 2 teams met and it seemed to get worse the more people you asked, from a 4-1 defeat to 6-0, then up to 7-0 and 7-1. It was actually 4 – 0 on 13th October, but our exaggerated memories served to concentrate the minds of the players and make them determined to take their revenge, even whilst nursing 3 hangovers.

So with the warm-ups and briefings complete, the whole team of 13 knew what was expected of them and where they had to be, that was until the umpire was ready to start the match. The thorough umpires conducted a quick headcount and advised that BAC2 were only fielding 10 players. A moment later and Lou was match ready and running on to assist the team in a fast opening to the game.
