Thwaites boycott fixture!
Thwaites FC were embroiled in yet more controversy last night as they
failed to show for their game with New Gardner's in the 7-a-side league.
The brewery team boycotted the fixture in protest over the sending off
of midfield starlet Jamie Hopwood last week. A long ban and a hefty
suspension are set to be handed to Hopwood. However, the Thwaites team
saw it as an ideal opportunity to protest over what is being dubbed in
the national press 'The sending off that never was'. The brewery team
have been fined £10-00 for their no show and could face expulsion from
the league should they boycott next weeks game against New Rangers.
We have decided to give match ratings on the performance of the players
off the pitch this weekend.
P.Slater 6 - Was in Town. However did not stay in Club Tropicana long
enough. Had a quiet Sunday night and went home at a sensible time.
D.Hopwood 9 - A great performance. Is really enjoying being released
from the shackles of a long-term relationship in this drink-ridden
weekend. Made the trip to West Ham on Saturday with brother Jamie which
was followed by a visit to Club Tropicana. Helped Jamie talk the talk. A
good effort on Sunday also. Is sure to be hung-over this morning.
D.Tabbinor 9 - Deserves credit for queuing up for the Worthington Cup
Final tickets. Was there for 6 hours. Washed away his anguish with a
host of drinks on Saturday night. Did not make Sunday night but a good
D.Southworth 9 - One of many players who experienced Tropicana on
Saturday. Who knows what he got up to in the women's toilets with that
bird? Had a good drink on Sunday also - ensured the bar opened again
after last orders which led to drunken scenes.
M.Slater 3 - Preston Knob End fan. Probably went caravanning.
C.Elmer 3 - Enjoyed his week off with a caravanning trip with Mark
J.Hopwood 10 - Two words - 'Oh Dear'.
S.Tormay 8 - Had a good drink. However needs to oust his Jewish
girlfriend to avoid circumcision.
