Spurley Hey vs Irlam

A wet, cold and dismal Saturday afternoon, what better way to spend it than stick yourself in the net and wallow around in the mud! I think this is the reason I haven’t played football for the past four years! Maybe I’m mad, but I’m certainly aching after the game today!

A couple of Matt Hamnett specialty throws and a couple of decent headers, meant that we got a couple of goals to take us into half time 3-1 up.  After the break though the game felt completely different. The referee was absolutely atrocious, allowing a goal that was clearly offside to count allowing them get back into the game. With the game at 3-3 the referee made yet another mistake in allowing another goal to stand that was miles offside!

So with the game at 4-3 we go on the attack and our forward gets cynically brought down in the area, which the referee decided he wouldn’t see. So the game ended a 4-3 with the Spurley boys definitely cheated out of a result, but hey, that’s football and we’ve just got to get on with it and make sure we get a result next week!
