THE TIRED OF BEING A VERY PECULIAR GUY HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE
So named because of the anniversary of the birth date of failed Gunpowder plotter Guy Fawkes (1570), and birthdays of ‘A Very Peculiar Practice’ and Fifth Doctor actor Peter Davison (63), and the Reverend Al Green (68).
- Johnny Hunt (Wrexham) – SCORED! his second is as many games, taking him to 10 in all competitions
- Charlie Austin (Queen’s Park Rangers) – FAILED! (15 for the season so far though)
- Federico Macheda (Birmingham City) – FAILED! (but has 12 for the season)
Lois Maynard (Halifax) – disappointingly, not built like Shirley ‘Big Daddy’ Crabtree…
Lee Currie (Berwick Rangers) did a Brighton at Elgin City, scoring first in his own net and then getting a penalty for his own side
Port Vale, beating Notts County 1-2 at half time, lost 4-2
Matt Barnes-Homer (Cambridge United)
Preston 6-1 Carlisle, certainly unpleasant for Carlisle, though at 87-ish mile distance, I’m not quite sure how local this is…?
None called, but plenty of opportunities – Gainsborough Trinity and Brora Rangers mullahing their opponents Oxford City and Huntly, and Inverurie Loco Works wham-ing Wick Academy (extra homework for Wick?)
Sponsored by Specsavers this week – Dunfermline Athletic and Forfar Athletic. In total, 18 shots but only 1 managed to reach the goal and that one shot didn’t cross the line.
Cambridge’s Andy Pugh got a one-man good-seeing-to in their 7-2 win at Hyde (who else?!). Normally this would be under Darwinism, but that was on last week.
Rory McAllister scored his fifth goal in successive appearances for Peterhead in the Scottish League Two. He once turned down an offer to join SPL side St Mirren in order to complete his Plumbing apprenticeship. In the words of his manager John Sheran, it was so he can “have a trade he can fall back on when he stops playing football”. The folks at Heating, Ventilation and Plumbing Magazine obviously agreed, and placed the story on their site.
Inaugural winner of a category that will be on from next week (once the name is agreed) – the Chav Name alert – Spurs’ on-loan striker Shaquile Coulthirst scores for Torquay…well done blood, innit.
