Couple of very funny and true articles for all you Sunday league/ex-Sunday league players! Especially the Telegraph one... 10 incontrovertible truths every Sunday league footballer knows:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men.....ootballer-knows.html

Guardian one could be taken as a bit condescending tone (not like The Guardian to do that   ) but taking it simply as a urine-take I enjoyed it - it's about the things we say on a Sunday morning:

That crunching tackle in the clip reminds me of when my leg got broken with a tackle from behind from some idiot when playing Sunday league football in the 1980s..

Who ya play/played for moosey? Ive just this season given it all up. Been playing and managing for the last 20 odd years and in that time ive done the ligaments in both knees, both ankles, fractured by neck and back and broken my arm! I fi ever play now it takes me a week to recover from the pain but you cant help yourself can you for the love of the game. I gotta admit tho' when you aint played for a month or 2 the pain relief is fantastic. Your bones stop cracking and the body stops aching, lovely stuff

Seeing those names, and the Lynton, reminded me of when I was a regular there and we wanted to put a Sunday League team together in the early 1980's. Our registration got in too late, but we then got a call to say that Barton Estates (think Don Beardsley was one of the owners?) had withdrawn from the 1st Division, and did we want to take their place? We did, but got humped every game we played - with a 24-0 drubbing at Caistor in some Cup game getting us a "Disgrace to Grimsby Sunday League football" in the Football Telegraph. Great for cheap headlines but not looking at the story behind the result. We always had more than enough players for every game, and I always remember playing up at Nunsthorpe one Sunday and we were winning 3-1 after about 15 minutes, and Artie White who was managing them was walking up and down the sidelines, head in hands saying "it can't happen to us" End of the game parity was restored with a 19-3 win for the home side.

I was goalkeeper for a good bit of the season and can't remember us ever losing with less than 8 goals against us, and I think we let in well over the 200 mark for the full league season. Those were the days. Dave Mawer was club captain. He was crap and all by then.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Only played for four clubs in my less than illustrious career, my only medal is the junior challenge cup managing Abatis a couple of seasons ago. Retired from playing at the end of last season at 38 due to age, obesity and generally being as quick as a slug in syrup. Several years at the following clubs, a briefish stay at The Cricks. Played with some great lads, miss playing, buggered my knee at worldnet playing for the internet mariners in the summer so I can't even have a kickabout at the mo.

  • Abatis Fire and Security FC

  • Hydro FC

  • The Boulevard

  • The Cricketers
