Acton Town won a game yesterday! I know it is hard to believe, myself and Martin (coach) kept saying that we could not believe it on the bus to the train station.
We almost threw it away though as we were 4-1 up and just about held on to win 5-4. The ref gave them two very dodgy penalties and was letting a lot of things go that he should not have. I’m not saying he was cheating, he was merely clueless about what he was doing.
On the whole I was quite happy with my performance. I only gave away one freekick and did not get a booking so that means I am able to be in contention for Saturday’s game. I am on four yellow cards and one more means I’m suspended.
I had a couple of beers in the club house after the game and was chilling a bit with Jayson, Martin and Jayson’s dad. I should not really drink more than one pint though as I start needing to use the toilet halfway home on the train and they don’t offer toilets on the London Underground trains.
Speaking of Saturday’s game we are at home to Tilburg Regents, this is the team that I scored my one and only goal against and it as at our home ground as well. Will the same thing happen again? That is very doubtful as I’m not allow to push up whether I’m at left back or centre defence.
