An old knee injury came back to haunt the progress of Chris Wade. Hard challenges were the order of the day and
the Travellers were unforgiving when it came to the tackles. Chris took one bump too many and the old knee injury sent
him to the sidelines for a few minutes. With only four men, continuation of the game would have been just silly, so
the ref offered the services of his friend, Darren I think his name was, he was crap so it didn't help.
Lenny was impressive though, hard working throughout the game, always willing to take players on and chase
the ball whenever the opportunity felt right. In the second at one point Lenny threaded the ball to Murrell, which then
saw the ball laid off to Cassinos, Cassinos darted left and then out right to send a low drive goalwards. The shot zipped
past the keeper and put the Towners on the goalsheet.
Only seconds later, Cassinos and Lenny were involved again only for Murrell to end up in a scoring position and send
a high ball booming into the back of the net. A little turnaround looked evident but it was a little too much to ask.
Chris Wade came back on and tried to continue but another knock with 7 minutes to go which meant the rest of the game
was sat out and that plank Darren came back on to ruin what would have been a comfortable win for the Towners.
Roger worked hard to keep as many goals out as possible but with the opposition players looking for five-a-piece and
with all the running and fitness in the world under their belts they were gonna grab a few.
Finally, as the game drew to a close it was Cassinos that scored again taking the final total for the Towners on their
last game to 3.
I will reiterate, the only reason for the loss was that the ref was shit and extremely biased and the other geezer that
replaced Chris was just a cock.
Mike Cassinos - Kept up the running throughout the game and took the most goals for the Towners
on their exit game. Some nice passing and tackling was also on display as well, well done Mikey and thatnks for helping
Lenny Jenkins - Played an impressive game this week and had a good few shots but the keeper was equal to some
fine efforts. Was extremely unlucky not to take a goal from the game but I'm sure this isn't the last time we'll play
Chris Wade - Was unlucky to get injured but when you run as fast as you can into huge football players, injuries
are expected! Some evident dedication from Chris to get in there and make the tackle, then pass off to teammates.
Roger Dogs - Brilliant between the sticks tonight, I don't remember any nutmegs but some of the rolling out and
communication was excellent.
Rickee Murrell - One goal and even fatter than last week.
Murrells Final Thought
I just wanted to say a big thankyou to all the players that showed up to help
out tonight, it really is appreciated and I'm sorry the result wasn't better. Romford Town has played it's final game
and tonights end was a fitting tribute to something so close to my heart. Why? Simply because I enjoyed it.
