A week is a long time in football, so the “prawn sandwich” brigade returned to Portlock Park after missing last week’s victory in the downpour.
The elements seemed favourable for the fixture with FC Sooke with the return of Martin Thorn and the “eerste verschijning” of our new Dutch signing Wade ter Heide from Saskatchewan. A flatlander in both senses! Welkom!
Manager Graham Tweddle was confident and secure in his position after signing a four-year extension to his contract, matching fellow “smoggie” and England manager Gareth Southgate.
Tweddle sent the lads out to continue honing their skills in his winning tactical formation. The dark clouds began to gather over Mount Erskine.
With “fake news” and “post truth” comments directed at the press box, I was well aware of criticism from some quarters that the Old Boys’ reports may on occasion stray from the strict letter of the action on the field of play. Trump’s media influence works in mysterious ways.
