Leamington Lions 13–0 Tyburn Aztecs

At half time the manager came up to me and said "What's blogging?"... which means he has also noticed that Google searches for Leamington Lions throw up this site and my blog as the first search result. Can any explain this to me as the club itself is found at the rather obvious


I promised I'd link to this page whenever I mentioned them as it seems fair and sensible and all that.

Anyway 13–0. And it was my first start after a minor injury to the first choice goalkeeper and I got to touch the ball three times!!! Woohoo. The sun shone and the poor Aztecs, who started with nine and then one got injured, tried, moreso than many teams I have seen. Unfortunately no much actually happened, apart form the two penalties, three disallowed goals, a freekick so good it would make David B*ckham cry and the wonderfully surreal cheer I got when I touched the ball in the second half…

All of which bizarrely reminds me of the time when me and my dad went to the pub to watch our beloved Manchester United (I was born in London, he was born in Dublin) hammer Liverpool, my mum's team… only to arrive home after the game and find that she'd locked the house and was refusing to let us in…

One more time for the craic…

Go there. It is good.
