    I'm the left back Our left winger has had to drop back to play there in the last few games while I'm out.

    Finally bit the bullet and signed up for an over 35 men's league for the spring/summer..... haven't played regular, organized, semi-competitive footy in years and years.... the team is in division 4 (of 7) and they desperately need a keeper so wish me luck

    So after last years fallout with the club for not helping us get the postponed game rearranged which would have sent us to the playoffs we kicked off and left for Epping FC, mainly because they've just spent $10m on facilities.

    This year I've been given the captains armband



    Whilst we lost some very good players due to relocating we kept around 11 or the 17 and now have a squad of 17 players. I personally think the squad is better but we are so short in defense its unbelievable!


    Game 1 v Putney Rangers (H) - Postponed due to adverse weather conditions

    Game 2 v Cherrybrook (A) - 2-2
    Short of players (1 sub!) and 2-0 down at halftime and a centre back on his way to hospital with a broken ankle didn't help. I'd like to say my Al Pacino-esque team talk rallied the troops to a 2-2 draw. I scored a volley from about 10 yards to pull one back then won us a freekick on the edge of the box with 5 to go. For some reason their defenders let me and our 17 yr old signing stand in the wall with them so on the run-up (after me giving the wink of smack the bastard) our Ukrainian midfield enforcer had a nice open shot as i push myself and our young winger out of the way splitting the wall. They were on the ropes at this point an extra 5mins we would have won.

    Game 3 v Macquarie (H) - 6-2
    I had to leave at halftime due to work!! We raced into a 2-0 lead at halftime. The first came within 5 mins with my first effort heading in from close range unmarked, then a 1 on 1 where the keeper got his finger tips to it I was already off celebrating. Being pissed off I missed, I smashed in a half volley into the bottom corner from the edge of the 18. No idea what went on in the second half, but our keeper saved a penalty which would have made it 2-1 which I saw when i got in my car.

    Good start. Playing top of the league this weekend!!

    First friendly game last night. My over-35 team was against a team in the men's Division 2 (all mid-20 year olds)..... it was raining, the game was from 9pm to 11pm, and it was on a turf field

    We managed to hang with them with the first half ending 2-1 for them. I was beaten off a free header from a corner (don't know who should have been marking that guy) and a beautiful curled shot from just outside the box that I don't think anyone could have saved.

    Second half, our age and lack of conditioning showed.... they just came at us in waves and skipped past our defenders like we weren't even there..... I probably made about 8 or 9 good saves, but they scored 4 more and we only managed to pull one back. Final score 6-2

    All in all, not bad. We were missing a few players and I think that when we play teams in our division and age group, we'll do fine.

    FYI, turf sucks when you're a goalie and have to dive and slide. Also, it's fucking hard.... my knees are killing me.

    Also, I'm old and out of shape

    That's normal, just not what you said in your original post, didn't know if you had different rules over there.

    Sometimes over here we play quarters with five/ten min breaks in between (due to extreme heat) thought that might be the case there due to extreme coldness!!
