Thwaites Suffer Double Blow!
Thwaites FC continued their poor form in the Sunday 7-a-side league
yesterday after being beaten in twice in their two games against top of the
league Real Leyburn and 3rd placed Brewers FC.
Thwaites put in a resolute display against the league leaders despite losing

performance and he started the game late as he attempted to find some shorts

ordered off for 2 minutes to calm down and his on-looking wife Liz seemed
Thwaites must now pick themselves up for the two games they have this week

style winning run to avoid relegation heartbreak
