Thanks for your kind hospitality yesterday Goose, the lads all enjoyed their day out, pass on our thanks to all at Whitby
A good game between the fans, a few good strong challenges but played in the right spirit, a few good goals scored by both teams - you did a great job as reffing it by the way.
Ned (the keeper) was fine, in fact the challenge never got another mention, some pie & Chips soon put him right.
For anyone who doesn't know the fans match ended up 5-2 in favour of The Dabbers, Paul Garnett with a first half hat trick and Wayne Garnett bagging two, including a 25 yarder into the top corner after a mazy run. Special mentions to Adam Vernon who was a rock in defence, and Ash 'The Hatchet@ Haughton who bossed the midfield.
The lads in the fans team put 100% effort in, as could be seen by the limping that was done every time we had a pit stop on the way home - and the journey home is worth a thread all on it's own.
The main game saw an amazing goal scored by Sean Cooke, chested down a long ball, and hit it on the half volley from 25/30 yards out into the top corner.
I won't mention the Whitby goal/penalty as it was truly an atrocious decision and the only person who thought it was a penalty was the ref.
