Super Vets – 16/09/17

The super vets opened their seasonal account with storming 5–3 win over Eastcote.

Sorry to miss a number of SV regulars, nevertheless our tails were up at the presence of a number of vets. Turns out the same was true for the Opo so a good game was on.

In true SV style, the forwards played a semi-separate game upfront, with Oz, Peter T and Saxby moving the ball and, on occasion, themselves to good effect. A classic narrow angle from Saxby paved his way towards the Hatrick. Good striking from Oz gave him a couple of goals, And the combinations were excellent.

From the back, distribution from Dixon – fresh from his goal medal winning efforts in the Euros – was first class. Greg, John Mason, Charles, Mike sucked up a good deal of pressure; though poor control led to Eastcote grabbing a couple of goals, keeping themselves in the game. Jim J held the line align well between the sticks.

The Grand Canyon of the midfield, another super vets feature, was able patrolled by Chapman, James J, Mark Gration and the new half captain.

End to end stuff, close for a moment at 4-3. But a final goal to seal the hat-trick from Saxby gave sufficient breathing space.

Excellent ball movement, lots of chat and a whole bunch of fun all round the pitch. MOM to Saxby for Hatrick, honourable mentions for Dixon, Jim and Brooksie. And Saxby took dick of the day to, though know one could quite work out why.

Plus the unusual sight of an SV mass warm down. Whatever next? Training perhaps?
