The Goal Sports Giants crashed out of the Europa League in emphatic fashion at the hands of York Reserve League side Dunnington Reserves FC, leaving the travelling fans and Giants officials firmly believing the magic of the cup is actually all a huge lie.

The Rudstonians made their first ever bus journey out of the village, with Louis King of The Courts Messruther leaving Scarborough for the very first time in his life, which led him to be hugely excited. This was also the furthest away from an Xbox Louis has ever been, Everyone here at the club would like to congratulate him on his achievement!

What awaited the boys at Dunnington was truly sensational, as a huge facility with gym, table tennis rooms, bar and many changing rooms saw the Giants getting changed next door to huge soccer franchises such as Reckitts Roosters FC from the Humber Prem, as well as our Dunnington FC foes.

All changed, ready and warmed up the boys were buoyant having prepared like the professionals that they are – listening to the 5 megamix, Biggy Smalls and the Armin Van Buuren remix of Frozen hit – Let it go!

Let it go was exactly what the Giants did to their chances of making their way in to round two as a dubious offside goal after only 8 minutens rocked the youngsters early on. It remains a huge issue in the Giant side that players are failing to appeal for decisions, leaving bigger boys on the opposition to do so and seemingly influence the referee.

Like the Spice Girls once said –but in reverse order – one did indeed become two! As a Sports clearance didn’t get any real distance and a Dunnington baddy fired in with aplomb.

The forward line of Stubbings, Le’Friett and Pickard saw about as much ball as an 18 stone bloke looking down in the shower - but on 24 minutes Stubbings skipped past his man down the left and fired over a cross for Le’Friett who connected, and sadly skewed his shot in to the away end.

A third goal for the home side followed shortly after Skeletal Midfielder Thomas Duckworth lost his man at the far stick and the home winger hit a cross-shot in to the far corner leaving Pwilly with absolutely no chance.

The Giants were still working hard against their much superior opposition and Le’Friett again found himself with a chance for a netter.

After being played through the young Frenchie found himself with the match soccer on his left side, at a slight angle, and he managed to go against everything he believes in which would normally be an outside of the boot strike – and punted the ball out for a goaldenyer restart.

And that was that for the Sports chances in the first period. Oh and they scored again…..

Half Time – 4 v 0

Coach Pluminho was looking really sad, and after much discussion with his coaching team of Pete Stubbings, the coach decided changes were needed. In to the fray came Seaside Tommy Wilde who had been doing star jumps for the full 45 in order to be ready when called upon – and number 9 Mike Greymar replaced the misfiring Le’Friett up top.

Top coaching instructions were dished out as the Esk Valley coach was attempted to be parked in front of Pwilly’s goal. Would the change in strategy change the proceedings?

The answer to the above question was yes…well kind of….The Giants did manage to get the ball inside the Soccer Goal Interior of the Dunnington FC, to huge applause and celebrations of the Fan of the Match Joe Edmond, who had travelled all the way from a real big city to cheer on the lads.

Sadly the home side scored 3 other goals, most notably one that came from the Giants corner – as the black and white striped Dunnington players broke quicker than a 17 year old visiting Mcdonalds drive through upon passing their driving test – and finishing to seal the game at 7 goalazo’s to 1.

With the Giants out, and many players slumped on to their knees in tears, it was time to look at the bigger picture – The journey to the promised land – AKA – WETWANG!

“The game was a shambles, and to be quite honest I wish I hadn’t bought this crappy shirt” said Giants fan Joe Edmond as he trudged out of the ground with club reporter Gail Hailstorm.
“If I don’t get any action at Wetwang like I have been promised I will never be following the Giants again, and will probably unlike their page” added a furious Edmond.

A huge Big’Up must go to Dunnington FC for being the most professional club we have ever come across in our short life span, and one that certainly are the blueprint for any side wanting to have a successful “Club” set up.

Oh and apologies must also come from ourselves for our captain punting the ball in the tree at the end. This kind of behaviour is not tolerated from captain, average joe player, coach or spectator – and him and his “suspect do” have been dealt with accordingly…..
