Staff v Boys Football Match

'We could always play the School team at football.' What ridiculous idea; tiddley winks perhaps, but football, really!
Yet there we were, eleven men and true, preparing in the wings of the amphitheater (the sports store) to do battle with the enemy
The air was heavy with ,the aroma of linament and moth balls, with the creaking of joints long out of practice at squeezing tight
shorts, and with comments designed to bolster confidence ascertain the rules.
'The staff lost 10-1 last time!' 'Well, if we do as well tonight goalkeeper will have played a "blinder".'
The pitch was in excellent condition, the crowd was giving early vent to its opinions, the photographers were demanding pictures
of the teams, the trainer was at the ready, keen to daub anyone so much as winced, with his whitewash brush. The whistle and
we were off, some of us perhaps wishing we were right off.
As Goldings is an educational institution, it was to be expected that the staff would remember their duty and pass on to the
benefit of their vast experience ( ? ) . The lesson this evening on the application of the off-side rule. We hope that the School now
appreciate the use of this law.
judging by the noise from the touch lines (where was every body?) the crowd enjoyed the exhibition. We thank the boys sporting
evening and thank them for not making our weary limbs run about too much.
The score? Oh we managed a draw one goal each !
