Without a goalie we conceded three easy goals in the first fifteen minutes, thereafter for the rest of the game we were camped in their half. The oppo acknowledged that we were robbed!

Our usual Court Reporter has been called away for domestic duties and reprogramming - hopefully the Adult Education Diplomatic Writing course will prove beneficial. Meanwhile our first time scorer, Miles volunteered to put pen to paper...

His Supreme Excellency has determined that previous reportage was too stern; too harsh. Thus, in attempt to placate our masters I shall attempt to inscribe a generous mix of subterfuge and slush: combined...

After a close away loss to Addiscombe the Shadows were up for the game against a mid table Epsom. With Rob the skipper away on Stag due duties it was up to Shadows Veteran Tom Copeland to motivate the team...

The morning of the game began with an email from Rob letting us know we had about 4 players available for the match. The lead up was disrupted further as Captain Organised forgot the kit, putting himself in the firing line for DOD before push-back - an impressive feat. Fortunately one by one more players turned up we started the game with a fairly strong looking starting 11...
