Time until the next game at Finca Naundrup

Report by Robin

A more encouraging turn-out of fifteen saw seven Reds versus eight Blacks.

In the absence of any ” Little old ladies from Pasadena” Jan and Dean ( sorry Jackie) from Benalmadena lined up in opposition as the first ladies to play in a WFS Calahonda session.

Whilst the girls were made welcome, most of the guys were unhappy, for a variety of reasons, about playing with women. To save embarrassment this view was expressed until after our guests had gone.

At our last EGM it had been overwhelmingly voted that WFS Calahonda would continue to be men only.

We had been stitched-up last year by having been paired with a female side in the cup competition. Of course we fulfilled the fixture but it was difficult to strike a balance between condescension and humiliation. In the event we maintained respectability by scoring freely but taking the foot of the pedal.

At an after-session discussion today it was reiterated that, in no way being personally critical of our two lady guests, we would wish to remain a single gender group.

As Chairman, Yorky would communicate this decision as appropriate.

As to the match – seven Reds took on eight Blacks.

Andrew again took the eye with five goals and a number of efforts which struck woodwork. He was ably assisted by Stuart with a brace of goals.
Kevin, Phil and Eamonn all countered for the Reds who really should have done much better in that,following Eddie’s earlier example, most of them were guilty of gifting the ball to the opposition.

In conclusion it must be said that, notwithstanding earlier comments, ouŕ lady guests acquitted themselves well.
