Game 37 Season 2 (27 Feb – 2 Mar)

THE ‘LEAVING LAS VEGAS WITH BECCA DEAN’S HOLE IN ONE’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So named because of the weekend birthdays of Mike Figgis (67), Ali “complete” Bastian (33), and broadcasting legend Peter Allis (83 – three away from that dangerous age)

Reggie Lambe (Mansfield Town) and our old favourite and inspiration for this category, Matty Fryatt (Nottingham Forest)

Miscellany

This space is reserved for Cowdenbeath who deserve especial scorn for their 10 (TEN) – nil defeat at Hearts, which equalled their worst ever result way back in 1951 when they lost 11-1 AT HOME to Clyde. The manager’s body has still yet to be found…

Also worthy of a mention is another sighting of the lesser-spotted ‘A Trialist’, who popped up in the 89th minute to help East Fife get a 2-1 home win at Annan Athletic
