LX CLUB v Khalsa
1st November 2015
Khalsa 1--LX 2
This was a new fixture for LX. And what a great event it was.The match was played on the Park pitch near the river and Warwick Castle, on the most beautiful of November days.
As usual, LXers had come from far and wide--Southampton, Bristol ,Doncaster, Ipswich to name but a few. A squad of 12 players, gave everyone lots of pitch time.
Khalsa have some quality players---for example German
Singh, Balbir Singh and Paramjit Hayre ( thought they were LXers !!) but, as
with so many LX compilations, the LX team got very quickly into their stride.
Robin Conway was pulling the strings in central midfield, distributing to Imtiaz
on the right , and John Tripp on the left, collectively feeding John Housham,
Pami Bolina, and new boy Tony Taig up front.
Are Khalsa the most sociable of hockey clubs.? Very probably. Back to Leamington Spa for chicken tikka, bhajis, an excellent chicken curry and as much beer and whisky as you could drink.
Same again in 2016. If you want an LX fixture that's a little different, then put your name down for this early in the New Year to avoid disappointment. If possible, Khalsa would like 2 LX teams next time.. Highly recommended.
