The Everley Fan Of The Match - Connor Reynolds

Like Ron Jeremy in a 90s XXX movie the Goal Sports Giants today went 4 up after despatching the pink uniformed It is It is Rovers upon Olivers Mountain and taking the victory points back to Rudston.

For the second Olivers Mountain visit running a Giants player found himself caked in dog foul as ginger winger Tyson Stubbings had to make a swift boot change pre match after treading in a brown pile in his Magista soccer cleats.

The pre match chaos thankfully did not affect the Goal Sports boys as they came roaring out of the blocks and missed 3 guilt edge opportunities in the first 10 minutes.

Stubbings, who is in love, was the first to make a mess of a fabulous left footed through ball by full back of the match Plumpton, and the same player once again failed with only the goal denyer to beat after more Giants excellent work.

The miss of the opening exchanges was reserved for top knotted Friend who somehow managed to shoot wide of the goal frame when only two yards out!

Some Giants fans were beginning to wonder if it was going to be one of those days when suddenly Friett released the ginge down the left flank.

Stubbings bamboozled the right back with some neat skill work before firing an unstoppable whizzer of a strike passed the Rovers stopper! What a strike!

Giants fan Connor Reynolds was thrilled as he told touchline reporter Gail Hailstorm “I’m thrilled, wowzer-rooney what a goal, that ginger lad is my new favourite player!”

The excitement of the goal was short lived as Reynolds in game interview was cut short by the gasps of disbelief from the rest of the Giants fans - as from the restart Rovers broke clear down their right and fired home from 18.6 yards to tie the game at one score a piece from a neat pull back.

The game continued to be full of dramatic drama and the live wire Frenchman Le’Friett slotted home from close quarters to once again give the boys the lead. Reynolds once again took time with Hailstorm and said “Oh my sweet baby Jesus, Le’Friett is my new favourite player, I want his name on my shirt!”

The Giants were looking sharp as a tack on the break but the Rovers outfit were looking like as dangerous as a Bruce Willis style hard to kill Die Hard baddy themselves - and on 23 minutes Rovers forced a corner.

The ball was swirled in to the area, the Nike match ball went around and round in the sweet autumn sky and the Giants head-denyed it out of the 18 yard danger zone and on to an on rushing Bradley Parkin, who was eating the ground faster than Susan Boyle gobbling her fill of an all you can eat buffet.

The right back strode past half way, leaving a trail of enemy’s in his wake and he found the ginge on the left hand side once again. With another piece of Fifa-esk none touch dribbling Stubbings cut indoors and unleashed holy hell from 25 yards – straight in to the Rovers goal interior and giving his soccer franchise a two goal cushion for the first time of the clash. What a belter, and Reynolds was loving it as he fist pumped on the touchline.

Like Brad Parkins girlfriend – The Rovers would not lie down, and they found themselves one score behind the Giants with another goal shot of their own, once again from their own restart from a Giants goal, which hugely disappointed coach Plumpton.

33 minutes flashed up on the Olivers Mountain big screen and this was the minute of the match that the Giants recorded their next stain on the score sheet.

This time it was George Friend who did the final kick as he ran on to a Tyson Stubbings toe bung over the top and finished with aplomb. Reynolds was up again from his seat yelling “you go girlfriend” at his good friend, Friend.

Rovers were in disarray, the Giants were flying as they were taking the game out of their enemy’s reach, and No 8 playing as No 10 Neil Prentice finished a training ground corner routine at the near post to unbelievably give his team a 3 goalshot lead – it was what wet dreams were made of and Reynolds was Barry Fry’ing down the touchline in delight at seeing his new favourite soccer franchise in complete control.

One guy wasn’t happy though and that was the coach of the Purple Uniformed away side.

Plumpton told Hailstorm on the way to the Olivers Mount loccer room at half time “I’m hugely disappointed at the way we conceded two goals from their centres, we will try even harder when they restart the game for the 2nd period” as the coach made his way to the feast on the end of first period cakes and Lucozade.

Half Time – 2 v 5

The second quarter failed to live up to the action packed blockbuster of the first as Rovers seemed a bit puffed out and the Giants were quite content to sit back and play on the counter.

The period was a stop start affair with the game seeing multiple substitutes and it was a Giant who entered the fray – Mike Greymar – who was felled in the Rovers danger zone giving a spot of excitement to the now drab affair, although nobody really knew why.

For the second week running the Giants were given a 12 yard death strike and after last week’s powderpuff effort by Phil Hill, the Magic Man Kieran Le’Friett stepped up to make the game even more secure than a Safestyle UK Window.

Like the great sport that he is Le’Friett calmly side footed the ball past the post in the greatest gesture of sportsmanship ever seen upon Olivers Mountain, and one that will almost certainly earn him the 2015 Nobel Piece Prize awarded by the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee in the presence of the King of Norway on 10 December this, and every year. A sterling gesture by the forward.

Finally Rovers did come within a hairs breath of claiming an instant win goalshot as midfield silkster Luke Jones ping-ding-a-linged a strike off the Giants crossbar on 78 moments of the game, which if it had hit a small person instead, would have seriously injured them and maybe blinded them.

As the overtime verdict table showed 3 minutes of added time the Giants knew they had the points in the bag and the full time hooter sparked celebrations amongst their travelling faithful that left Reynolds an emotional wreck “I have followed my boys for literally 1 game and I have seen them come so far, it is a great day, one I will remember and cherish for ever!” revealed the fan of the match whilst in the arms of Hailstorm on the touchline.

Coach Plumpton sees his side leap to the head of the Super League C table and they now begin a run of cup fixtures knowing they have a real chance of seeing his side having more fun times over the course of the soccer season after downing this title rival and adding to their already huge fan base in the form of Reynolds.
