LX v Pistons
at Southgate on 25th August 2016
A mixed LX O70 team, sweated to a hard fought draw (0-0),in the late afternoon heat,with much enjoyment.
The game was the last ,this summer,in a trilogy of specially arranged matches,between LX O70 and Southgate Pistons (Legends-o60),all of which have proved to be hard fought and well balanced.
Although there were 27 applicants to play initially,LX were down to a bare 10 on the day,which allowed us dispensation to recruit Club Captain,Richard Slator,as LX's 11th man at the 11th hour,as he was playing in the following game.(FIT and BRAVE,in that heat !)
Some crisp and brisk interchanging of passes,saw LX take control ,early in the
game,and RW Woolcott,was surprised to find himself with the ball,but nose to
nose with a large keeper. .
The evening finished with a cup of tea and cucumber sandwiches.
Sorry,I mean an excellent BBQ and a modicum of beer !!
Manager Brian Woolcott
