A match report from this week, way back in August 2021.

All the world’s a stage, And all the men merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, including the Ref 
( Quote written by a monkey locked in a room with  a typewriter and sums up entirely what walking football is all about).

This mornings game at the Retamar was played in extreme heat, nudging the mid 30′ s and was played in good spirit.

The game kicked off with 5 Yellow Tabards against 6 Orange tabards, with the Yellows having a rush keeper and a referee. Oranges opened the scoring with a slick move and soon doubled their lead before the yellows came back into it.

The Oranges continued to press but for some curious refereeing decisions, were unable to add any further goals, despite the ball finishing up in the goal , due to the fact that scorers had mismatched boot laces or their hair was parted on the wrong side 😊. Please look out for the new 20/21 edition of WFS rules and regulations, sponsored by specsavers.

The game continued to ebb and flow and it seemed that the numerous water breaks broke up the Yellows concentration and oranges continued to add to their tally and at one stage the score was 8-6, or was it 8-4 or 7-5 , or 7-6 or 9-8 or ……….

The match finished 12-6 to the oranges. Scorers for the Yellows were Jim K with a magnificent hat trick, Steve, Kevo and Keef. For the oranges Big Al and Mike scored 4, Dave a couple and Steve and John with one apiece. As usual the scorers are not necessarily those listed and if every ones to be believed when asking for scorers, the score was 97-93 to the Oranges

Players on both sides today provided a super spectacle of walking football on a searingly hot day and rightly adjourned to the bar where several jugs of cold Lager were sunk.
