‘Win or eat a bowl of Richard’s (????)’
Inspirational words indeed from Jack O Stevens, as ‘Hot Fuzz’ sought to fire up Le Glamour pre -game and keep the title dream alive (for at least one more week).
Ross and Trevor stood between Le Glamour and the three points they coveted. There was an air of nervous excitement at the Stade Blanc, which was taken to a whole new level by Harry Smith and his mid warm up vomiting session.
Apparently contemplating eating a bowl of Richards was not sitting well with young Harold and the out of date Sushi he had just consumed.
The message was simple ‘Focus on structure, discipline and tempo. Nothing silly in the first ten minutes’. The result a Ross and Trevor goal after only five or so minutes. Le Glamour looked lethargic and devoid of ideas. Then as Jack O Stevens began to prep a large bowl of Richards the boys in White woke from their slumber.
Our young Casanova, Liam Mulligan, was sent clear on goal by a superb through ball from Stuart Smith. Keen to atone for abandoning his team mates at half time the previous week for his future bride (Elly Pfitzner) loves young dream chipped the keeper to level the scores.

Liam Mulligan added his and Le Glamour second midway through the half after good work down the right by Damian Holoubek.
Phil Collins was first to the cheeky fookers cross and his cushioned header fell perfectly to Liam to volley home for a 2 – 1 lead. As half time approached Le Glamour opted to consolidate their lead and see out the last few remaining minutes. No sorry that’s what the coach would have liked.
Hungry for more goals Le Glamour poured forward and got caught on the counter attack. Half time and 2 – 2.
The second half saw Le Glamour dominate Ross and Trevor. The work ethic, tempo and desire of Le Glamour had the boys in red rattled. Some of the passing and movement
