My apologies for the delay in posting but we have been awaiting image rights clearance for the photos. Mr McBride's lawyers were naturally concerned about Colin being seen in non-Umbro branded "leisurewear", but apparently Umbro were unaware we were using their kit in the first place. On the other hand Roomes of Upminster have been in contact to request the return of the curtains that 1961 COYS chose to wear for his big moment.
Unfortunately the Wooden Spoon presentation was cancelled after
we forgot to bring in a wooden spoon Hatted Urchin failed to show up after the game.
Meanwhile in the result that actually matters - the play off final - it's well done to Maccas1. Not for your predicting performance - which was predictably inept - but for your knowledge of the competition rules. Not many of your fellow ballers would been able to calculate you'd lost - most of them think I make up the results after six bottles of Speckled Hen.
Playoff Final - Final score : FC Dench (Maccas1) 10-12 Daley's Dream (Fat Tom Daley)
So Fat Tommy D joins Cool Hand Luke and Paul_C in joining the big boys. Welcome back Fat Tom. And hard luck to Maccas1 but you now know what you're up against to bridge the chasm between
Romford Collier Row (South) and Upminster.
The Spring League will start some time in the New Year. So I'm afraid another 14 weeks of tedium awaits...
Happy Christmas + New Year.
