Upon this battle depended the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depended our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Club. And if The Business School lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, "This was their finest hour."
In nets the omens were good as Joe Andersons love child Mark Farrer doned his new £6.99 boots from Wyndsors World of Shoes and his lucky River Plate Jersey! He found Boy Soldier Joe Birket to bring the ball out the back. The Economists played their one touch football on a pitch the size of Dunkirk beach as the Illuminati sent Doodlebug skywards. But Field Marshall Hedges and his battman Larkin ordered his troops to sit tight in their foxholes and resist the oppositions Blitzkrieg. Deep defence invited pressure on the BSFC and 2 wonder goals followed against the run of play. ILLUMINATI 2 - BUSINESS 0!! We were all on our own and no one was coming to help, we were an island under siege. So the Business School dug in and fought for England, Prince Harry and St George!! An enemy raid on Farrers goal saw the ball go through his hands and over the line but Timms hooked it out and no goal was given. Then a through ball to the Welsh Grenadier saw him run half the length of the pitch with 3 players on his tail and lob the keeper from 20 yards. ILLUMINATI 2 - BUSINESS 1. Then minutes before half time a corner from the ever loyal Corporal Catchpole found their keeper scrambling on his line and fail to keep it out!! HALF TIME: ALUMNI 2 - BUSINESS 2!!
In the second half Master Tactician Larkin changed the formation to 4 4 1 1 and pushed his men across the Siegfried Line. Ashley and Doherty dominated the enemy and Richman shot number 4s standing leg off! Never in the field of human conflict has a player deserved the V C. more than Private Ashley. His bravery and tenacity against all odds saw The Business Schools military disaster turn into the most Glorious Triumph! Richman found himself 1 and 1 with the keeper and unselfishly passed to Fletcher to sky it wide. Alumni took advantage and took the lead again. But setbacks only make the Captain and his troops come back stronger! A delicate header down from War Vet Roberts saw Richman bring the ball down and rifle into the net!! ALUMNI 3 BUSINESS SCHOOL 3!!! Martin Larkin invaded the field to spread his 'Leave it!' propaganda and the ref disallowed an opposition goal. In attack Richman never backs down and Never surrenders! A superb free kick found the back of the net and the crowd went wild in scenes reminiscent of the Liberation of Paris!! Bodies were literally on the line as Chidsta Okpala cleared the ball before being wounded in action as Scott Carson pulled off a World class save. Then Richman spoke to his God who instructed him to lie down in green pastures and block a certain Alumni goal!!! The whistle was blown and Victory was Ours!! FINAL SCORE: ALUMNI 3 - BUSINESS SCHOOL 4!!!
