An English man, an Irish man , and a Scottish man are sat in a pub discussing the game they had just played in. Not the start of a naff, slightly racist joke but the actual post mortem of yesterday’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Sefton vets. Needless to say the three incumbents form various parts of the British isles were entirely blameless. I’m pretty sure we could sort out the Irish border issue if a game of football was played before talks began, and then only the main players went back to the pub to discuss the issues. It’s everyone else’s fault when they’re not there. Let this be a lesson to all of those who cried off from enjoying Seftons post game hospitality. We had more sausages than you could shake a shitty stick at… on to matters of a footballing nature.
The game started with the home side pressing, but with the Ramblers back line standing firm. Occasions breaches were dealt with effectively if not somewhat unorthadoxiaclly by Shannon between the posts. The breakthrough came 5 minutes before the break when an attempted back pass was intercepted by Seftons livewire striker who slotted from 12 yards. The half time team talk from Shannon, while mostly incoherent was certainly passionate, and the 3s came out for the second half fired up and ready to match the somewhat physical opponents head on. 2 minutes later it was 2-0….. An excellent finish to be fair from their rampaging centre half with the most delicate of chips. Who knew centre halves could play???? The game opened up and chances were being created by both sides, the next goal would be decisive. Unfortunately another screamer of a finish from Sefton put the game beyond doubt. While the scoreline flattered the home side the result was fair.
