Victory to the Whippersnappers!

By Simon Lord

The Under 30s take the victory for the first time in many a moon.

The annual Boxing Day Match was once again well attended with the Under 30s a surprise winner by 25 points to 20.
The young pups used the dastardly tactics of running and passing to overcome the more pragmatic opposition in a game that was a very enjoyable encounter.
Will Kingston led arguably one of the youngest sides to play in maroon and many of the players still in their late teens, were taken aback by the ferocity of the Overs tactics.
Graham Bowie's men resorted to using the tackle and break down laws of the 1980's and this seed perfectly acceptable to the venerable Mr Herlihy with the whistle.
The side traded scores throughout the match (not a single conversion was successful) until the yoof stuck the decisive blow with just over 3 minutes to go.
Several inducements were offered to the official to continue the match until an equalizer was created, and when a series of penalties in favour of the geriatrics had taken them to within 5m of the line, one wondered if Andy may not have to buy a drink for some time at the club bar.
However, the officials patience was tested just too many times and having ignored at least 3 clear offences, he finally awarded the youngsters a penalty which ended an enjoyable game. Many thanks for the two captains, for organising the teams, to Andy for refereeing, Nigel K for sorting out the pitch and Robbo for the Half Time Port duties....
HAPPY NEW YEAR ONE AND ALL.
