Sunday Leagues Under the Sea

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Getting ready for the next fixture
Talk selection, tactics, game plan
Cope with injuries and odd suspensions
Pray for attendance of the kit man

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Bungay Town have been awarded some money
To level their sloping pitch
They’ve had huge problems with flooding
Couldn’t play at home for three months – what a glitch

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The pitch was waterlogged for months
The agreed call off scenario was ‘two ducks’
They got up to five ducks and eight seagulls
Before the lottery fund stumped up big bucks

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The pitch at Dilham is like a ski slope
It’s best to get in at half-time, nil-nil
It gets easier to score in the second half
When the opponents are running uphill

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Alpington used to play on a field
Before kick-off, they had to shift cows
The cow pats upset the opponents
Organic matter versus a big girls blouse!

Sunday Leagues Under the Sea

In the Prem most are fortunate that fixtures go ahead come Hull or high water. Spare a thought for park football where the seasons success depends partly on the mercy of the weather. Bungay Town were recently awarded a £50,000 lottery grant to level their pitch and prevent flooding problems.
I admire the teams who turn out in the lower leagues and and give everything for 90 minutes in testing conditions.
I remember a bunch of kids turning at Sloughbottom Park and getting on with their game in spite of a burnt out car abandoned in the middle of the pitch.
