Report by Randy Bloomshield - Scarborough News Of The World

Up above the streets and houses, rainbow climbing high,
Everyone can see it smiling over the sky.
Paint the whole world with a rainbow.

This was indeed the scene in the 78th minute of todays FA Cup clash as ginger forward Tyson Stubbings rainbow flicked the hell out of his opposite number in the Pickering Knights penalty area, which provided an instant win for the Giants.

The Giants lined up in a brand new formation after struggling to play real good soccer of late. Club gaffer and all round short guy Coach Plumpton told club reporter pre match "Sometimes a change is just as good as a rest, and today we needed to make that change to provide a bit of oomph and excitement in the Giants young boys lives".

The Storm Roofing Arena was feeling the full effects of the Autumn seasonal change as the Tim Henman end, which sports a full real life Tennis Court behind the goal - was covered in leaves and other Autumnal debris.

With the leaves at their back the Giants powered forward in the early exchanges and bar for some incredibly slack finishing from their forwards would have been incredibly comfortable early doors.

It took until precisely 16 minutes for a well worked training ground short corner routine to find Stubbings on the right side of the box, and he did the rest with a pile driver of a left footed strike - Patrick Berger-esque which nestled in to the SGI and put the boys Juan Neil up.

The next Giants corner proved to be the next oppotunity to stain the Pickering Knight goal-denyers sheets as the ball fell on the edge of the 18 yard danger zone to Plumpton.

A calm head was needed, and the fact he can't really kick it that far - Plumpton threaded a ball to burly central defending ace Phil Hill, who then turned on a sixpence and slotted in to the near post to spark his trademark Usain Bolt celebration.

The Purple pe kit wearers were in cruise control and were spurning glorious chances galore as the Knights had much more success in kicking players rather than ball, which was strange as usually teams in the Beckett League are nice boys and play some real nice soccer!

Two netters became three as Stubbings inserted the proverbial fist in to the Knights backline with a trade mark skill run and neat finish in to the SGI. The little ginge was in sparkling form in this clash and could only really be stopped when the bad guys committed a felony to the leg to bring him down.

The Knights game, I mean kicking plan, was sucking really bad and from their own corner the soccer loving, felony hating Giants burst as speed in to the attacking area of the field. Some super nice build up by Le'Friett and Stubbings saw the latter slot home and bag the match ball for his mantlepiece in his bedroom.

1st Quarter - 4 v Neil

The second half saw the Knights employ the bus parking tactics as well as their now perfectly honed slide tackle to the leg when a player gets past them strategy.

With the advanced warfare now being employed by the Knights the Goal Sports coaching staff were struggling to find an answer having never encountered such a tactical masterstroke. One fine fellow even flipped off AND blew a raspberry to coach Plumpton after the Giants leader asked him to behave and play football, rather than encouraging his young team mates to "chop him" or "break their legs like I will break your legs and i'm 42!". Nice guy, great leader, and such a shame people like this still exist in local soccer!

The final hooter ended the 2nd and final Quarter and this saw the Giants after win their qualificization 1st FA Cup round battle, some Giants fans, most noteably Shannon Colclough are now getting real excited that this could be the year that the Rudstonians get themselves a new soccer cup. Shannon told Randy "It was so great for the boys to get a win today, but I do really love George, his hair is so nice and soft, and when he does it in that funky fun bun my heart melts, I do love him so".

The Giants will now go in to battle with the Seamer Dynamo Reserves in November as they take their next step towards the actual real FA Cup, and a place in the final at Wemberlee Stadia
