Barnstoneworth AA1 opened their season with a 4-1 victory over UNSW at the House of Pain on Sunday. Goals came from debutant Andreas ‘ The Stallion” Lupi who scored a brace, Gay Ritchie and Dave the Rave Mays. An early goal by The Stallion and it looked like it may be an easy afternoon, but a string of missed chances and a lack of commitment allowed UNSW back into it. Then a pass back, that was about as popular as a shite in a swimming pool led to Uni’s equaliser.
The second half was a lot better as the lads wore down Uni to run out easy winners overall. A decent effort but with definite room for improvement with good performances from Simba, Hop-a-Long Downer, Baldy Nick in the second half and Dave the Rave when he came on was encouraging. It was also good to see Hairy John back after his liver transplant and Michael Michael after his sphincter problems resulting from a night out with Ben Grant.
