SUFC 2 Northampton 2
SOUTHEND (0) 2 COBBLERS (2) 2
With Fish Walsh and Prawn Connery otherwise indisposed sorting out their forthcoming nuptuals (no, not to each other), it was left to James Anchovy to
suffer watch the game. Elvis was out, in comes the Poet Wordsworth for a start and Phil shuffles the pack.
First half and it’s all Cobblers. And Northampton score twice as well. One is an OG from the Power Ranger, and with stunning irony it’s doubled by Crooks. Halfo 0-2 and the natives are restless.
Second half and Blues are a different team, Demi scores and 2 mins later it’s the Poet for 2-2! Both teams go for it and it ends 2-2. Crooks gets taken down to the cells for 2 yellows.
James says “We should have ground out a win, the first goal was jammy but heads went down again, then we conceded again. Second half was much better, belief, good passing and retaining the ball, we deserved to win. Again a defender and midfielder score, Cox seems to look backwards when he should have a pop himself. Demi MOTM was deserved.”
