Home league match played on 16 September 2013.
Kicked off at 6:20 PM

Florist extended their unbeaten streak in deadly fashion as they took revenge against Obi Wan Kenobi Nil for their early season defeat.

The build up to the game surrounded Florist manager Charlie Carter and his brother, Jack Carter’s suspension. Despite the pathetic referee from last week’s insistence that two players were banned, both players’s made it into the game, with the help of a disguise from the Florist manager.

Florist lined up in the game with Mann in goal, Morris in defence with Carrott making his first start, Morph and James Slater in midfield, and Tom Slater leading the line.

The team got off to a flying a start, controlling the game, and soon got their reward when James Slater squared the ball to Morph who fired home at the near post.

However, in classic Florist fashion, it was not to last long. James Slater made an unusual error playing a short pass back to Mann, in a period of high pressure from Obi Wan, and their striker struck powerfully into the crown jewels of the Florist goalkeeper making him yelp in agony, only for the rebound to fall back to him and slot past the incapacitated goalkeeper. In fact, Mann had not recovered by the time Florist had taken the kick off.

Florist were not to be on level terms for long though. Morris played the ball into Carrott, who had grown since his first outing last week, who played it out to the right to James Slater, who struck towards goal only to be denied by the keeper, the ball then fell into Morph, who two was also denied, only for James Slater to strike into the goal from the rebound. Florist were back in the lead and would not lose it again tonight.

Charlie Carter then added to his fantastic scoring record when his brother Jack played the ball into him, before he took a touch and fired home to make it 4-1.

Florist were ringing the changes from the bench, however, despite their supremacy in score, this was not aiding their organisation defensively. This led to a period of pressure from Obi Wan late in the first half, and they capitalised when their attacker hit a beautiful effort from long range past the on looking Mann, which crashed off the post, onto his leg, and into the goal. An unfortunate own goal giving them some hope going into the second half.

Florist came out the traps the quickest once again in the second half, in which for every goal they scored they missed 3 or 4 golden opportunities.

Torp finally making his debut for Florist linked up a one-two with Jack Carter, who then played the ball into striker Tom Slater, who finished in off the bar to continue his decent start to his Florist career.

Obi Wan would get another goal back when another decent spell of attacking football, caused by a lack of positional organisation again, would lead to a well hit shot from outside the area beating Mann at his near post.

Morph would grab his hattrick however, when after his intial shot was parried by the goalkeeper, fell to James Slater who forced the goalkeeper to make another good save, only for Morph to score via a deflection. James Slater would claim the final touch, but unfortunately for him, the hairs on his legs would not be enough to deny the rampant Morph the first Florist hattrick.

Morph then nearly added to his tally when, brimming with confidence, he took the ball on a solo run past a couple of Obi Wan defenders only to see his shot hit the near post but come out to the oncoming Charlie Carter to easily slot home for his second.

The game was well and truly over, but Florist were not in the mood to stop there. Carrots perfectly flighted corner found Morris rising in the air, who then headed into the ground to get his first goal in 9 matches and silence his critics about his goal scoring record. A truly fantastic goal in this format of the game.

Obi Wan’s blonde striker then decided to have a rather pathetic assault on Mann as he ushered the ball out for a goal kick which saw the Florist goalkeeper go flying into the Obi Wan subs. I’m not sure how Mann will live with himself following being “outstrengthed by a 16 year old”.

Jack Carter would finish the rout when Charlie Carter’s long ball was not dealt with by the Obi Wan goalkeeper, flapping at it, leaving Jack with an easy header from a yard to grab a goal.


Florist win 9-3 in a rather easy affair for a team in great form.
