Game 10 Season 2 (19-22 Sept 2014)

THE ‘Philippa Forrester has A Little Time on the Thrones‏’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So called because of the birthdays of the aforementioned Forrester (46), Dave “Who?” Hemingway (writer of “A Little Time”, 54) and Game of Thrones author and Tolkien wannabe George RR Martin, 68 on the 20th.

Leeds United v Huddersfield Town – 30 minutes on the X9 bus. Note: not a standard unit of measurement.

Jamie Cureton (aka The evergreen Jamie Cureton…although how you can be a veteran, which implies someone grown-up, and still be called Jamie is anyone’s guess) Dagenham & Redbridge – 17 of them
Daniel Nardiello Bury – 11

Darwin
DARWINISM IN ACTION

Very much so, Ray! Halifax Town (THIRD) 5-0 AFC Telford United (TWENTY THIRD). I think the A in AFC may stand for Amateur.

Dont call me Shirley
DON’T CALL ME SHIRLEY

None found (“but surely you can’t be serious…?”)

BEEHIVE TO WIGGY

No, not really. But I knew you were about to ask me that…

Howard: Macclesfield Town v Southport, called at 3-0 on 44. The score after this point did not change.
Chris: Aston Villa v Arsenal, called on 41. Ditto, in all respects.
Barney: Mansfield Town v Carlisle United, called at 3-0 on 43. Cue a late Carlisle rally, with the game finishing 3-2. Better than a half-time team-talk.

MISCELLANY

East Stirling’s game with Annan Athletic saw the welcome return of A. Trialist. Welcome, unless you were an East Stirling fan, as he scored the game (and Annan)’s only goal.

Chris Rimmer of newly-promoted Cefn Druids did a ‘Brighton’ vs Newtown. Worth noting, as they are rare. Doubtless too, will have been said to have had an “eventful” game by the local paper.
