V NEW MARSKE
By Mal Bean
THE ‘TAFFY TATLER’.....2018 – 2019 season.
Saturday 04/05/2019 away to New Marske, last league game of the season.
On an extremely windy day, dry, bobbly pitch, and with some strange (to say the least) refereeing/assistant refereeing decisions, we did well to come away with a 3 – 0 win.
The team = Dale, Woody, Rob, Kenny and Dan (Captain.).
Midfield = Lee J., Sam, Gav and Jamie.
Forwards = KC and Dowsey.
Subs = Leon (used) Callum (used) Marcus (used) Andy and Lewis G. (not used.).
A poor start, which was more down to the conditions than anything else, but once we settled there was only one team wanting to win this game.
