Just thought I´d make a small post while I´m passing, on Monday night I managed to grab a half hour of the Under 21 side containing a youthful Alex Brooks helping out the youngsters. Spraying the ball around and still complaining about the pitch! At 0-1 with seconds to go an Abbey forward prepared to shoot when the ball was whipped away from him and he went tumbling. Around eight of us in the stand were just about to say “What a great tackle” when the ref pointed to the spot. Needless to say 1-1 the final score from then on. We all looked in disbelief but were not about to change his mind for him! Footballs a funny game, last night I watched the first team play Dereham Town at home and twice the number two from the visitors was clearly fouled by Kizzi and Co and nothing given. We wonder what we watch sometimes even if it does go our way! Saturday we racked up five at Cricklewoods the home of Ilford when we played Barkingside. Think we have problems at times but boy they got their work cut out. Never used to like Barkingside but after what Redbridge done to them at their ground, I hope they stay up. Was a fair weekend to be fair.
More ramblings soon..everywhere we go were the Abbey boys at the Jason Mallet shooooooow
