Young against old.  It was a great pleasure to be allowed back on the pitch at Jamor, and even better to have a good game against the under 18s

The first half was fairly even, but the Vets proved to be clever with their counter attacks. In Herman we found a very able centre forward. Not the quickest, but why run if you can do it with skill? After some good combinations in the mid field, between Andrew, Aderito and James, Jerry managed to score with a solid hit in the bottom corner. Two goals followed, both scored by James after excellent work by Herman. Half time 3- 0 to the Vets.

After some wise words by captain Hans, we managed to let in 2 quick goals. John (son of James) scored them both and one of them was of a quality that the father can only dream about. 10 minutes to go and Jerry scored a very well placed killer goal in the near corner. With an age difference of at least 30 years the young ones started to run past most of us, but fearless Craig kept the ball out of his goal. End result 4 – 2 to the Vets.

Thanks to Hugo and Ray for umpiring a clean game. No cards, no arguments. As we said to each other at 6 o´clock, “nice to be back on a Saturday afternoon”.
