LX CLUB v HARLESTON SENIOR VETS
Sunday 21st March 2010
Result: Won 3-0
A cheery LX Club group gathered in the Spring sunshine to play in what is probably one of the most long-standing LX Club fixtures; even John Gordon’s shades, who came along as a potential substitute, were glinting in the sun, as the team savoured the forthcoming match.
After half-time LX made a few tactical changes to the forward line, John Grinham, dominated at centre half, eventually slotting a precision pass to Graham Martin, who took his goal with consummate ease. LX was then perhaps slightly fortunate to be awarded a penalty stroke, which David Brampton converted in highly deceptive style. The game ended with a 3-0 win to LX Club, bringing the aggregated fixtures results to five wins each and three drawn games.
To complete an enjoyable day Magpies laid on their usual superb buffet and desserts, all prepared by Sue Williams and friends, with further hospitality provided by the Harleston players. Vaughan Dearling and Graham Ramm umpired to their usual high standard, and Graham nominated LXer John Grinham as ‘Man of the Match’.
Final thanks go again to Tony Williams, the LX Match Manager, for this traditional fixture, which was well supported by the wives and partners of both sides.
