THE TAXI FOR MANI HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

Mani from overrated band The Stone Roses was about a billion years old this weekend. As for Taxi! – it was Danny De Vito’s birthday on the 17th of November. At 69 (snigger) he still has some way before getting to the age that all celebs seem to die – 86.

Miscellany

Ian Mc Shane scored for Queen Of The South, which made the opposition Swearengen…get it? Oh come on…

Another former ‘A Trialist’  was unmasked – Steven Bell of  Stranraer (no relation to Barney’s dad)

Just because it wasn’t on the list, there was an excellent Reverse Churchill at the Cowdenbeath – Hamilton game. At half-time, Cowdenbeath  were 2 up, by full time, 4-2 down!

And on the subject of categories that never were- Prestatyn Town fought like beavers to beat Port Talbot in the Welsh Premier League game. After  55 minutes, Prestatyn were 1 nil down and had 9 men (it was 10 v 9 on 62 though) BUT they fought like beavers to win 2-1!

Finally some interesting high scores in the Highland Football League:-

Rothes 0-9 Cove Rangers (A Dry Wyngarde)

Turriff United 7-0 Lossiemouth (A Wham!)

OVERALL RESULT: A NARROW WIN FOR THE BLADES!
