Really enjoyed 6-a-side last night. Did a lot more running and got involved a lot more in what was a “physical” match with a lot of meaty tackles.
I think more or less everyone will have woken up with some sort of ache or pain this morning.
In my case it’s my ankle after being the recipient of a slightly late tackle. Being rapped on the inside of your ankle bone/ achilles wasn’t nice but it was pretty easily run off.
All I can say is that I’m thankful for the protection given by my shin pads as I could have had more than just a small lump there this morning had I not been wearing them.
My team came out on top again with superior fitness seeming to be the biggest contributing factor to the result.
We had a couple of new lads playing with us tonight, both good players, who I’ll be hoping will be able to play every week as the standard of play was slightly higher.
I think we’re going to have to agree on a colour scheme or set of strips to wear – the team we played were all in Newcastle shirts, except for one person who was wearing the black and white stripes of Juventus.
I have to say, it was nice getting the win over a team in black and white stripes.
On another subject, I’ll hopefully have my car back tonight after the clutch/gearbox is replaced. Can’t believe how much having no transport affects you!
That’s it for this post. Seeya later!
