London Old Boys Sunday Vets Cup Final
OMFC Vets 4 – 2 Chigwellians Vets
Sunday 1 st November the Vets won their 2nd cup in a month, defeating Chigwellians 4-2 having been handed a home advantage. 0-1 midway through the half, Thommo equalised with a neat header following an excellent Jack cross. we went 2-1 up with an Ed pen after Tim had been fouled. Ed was then fouled for the most obvious pen imaginable, but it was not given !! HT 2-1.
Having been much the better side we conceded after 65 mins and had a bumpy 5 mins before sub , Jake Collis, scored a fine volley from a Jack free kick and Jack completed a hat trick of assists by unselfishly ( and uncharacteristically ) passing to Simon to make it 4-2. Full time.
So why am I , KQ, on the 2nd Dec writing a report a month later?? well the answer is simple! The management were handed the reward of writing their own story/obituary, a process which has NEVER HAPPENED in their long tenure, dating back to 2003. Its fair to say that the players have long stopped asking Pad and Rory if they ever went to school to avoid embarrassment.
After Rory did ALL the work leading up to the final, the job was handed to Pad. He assured everyone it would be done, but he is a very busy man and has not had time to put crayon to paper. However, having visited Pad and Christine several times and after many tantrums we have a report. . .please dont be too judgemental.
We won the Kup. West Wikam lost it. I alwaz tel the palerz that if we skor more then dem we have relly relly good chans of winnin. The boyz listen to me. we skored more golz thanthem and we won the kup. Winchmor Hil r a good side but wez beter. . i fink we lost a goal and then found a goal, so it was 1-1. then we skored so that made it 2 goalz to us and only 1 to them. Thats good.
