Hatty hero Tyson Stubbings was the awesomest soccer player on the day the whole wide world celebrated Guy Fawkes being burnt to a crisp like proper bare time ago, as he hit 3 goalshots that saw the Giants bag the W over last season’s rivals the Rosette Rhinos.

The ridiculously poor weather threatened to make all Giants follows real sad, as the snain, wind and more snain came down pre match as the Giants got themselves in to the zone and ready to take on the old enemy of 2k15/16.

A fast paced game plan was thrown upon Coach Plumpton's tactics board, with the "red arrows" and "A64" tactics also being implemented by fellow coach, Pete. With this plan laid down for all to witness in the home dressing room there really was no way on earth a defeat would be on the cards.

After a scrappy opening period the Giants began to do some nice kicks, and Heritage at left back was linking expertly with his fellow left sided chum TS7 as they began to unlock the Rhino's back door with ease, that saw both hero’s miss glaring 1 on 1 opportunities before the half hour stage.

Dan Pollard also found the Rhino's goal denyer in splendid form, as the gloveman came out to smother the soccer ball when it seemed almost certain Pollard would nestle it in to his soccer goal interior.

With the chances coming faster than a firetruck arriving at a local bonfire gone wrong, it seemed like one of those days, only for the skipper to take the bull buy the proverbial horns and open the scoring himself!

A whirly swirly corner was fired in, which as planned was missed like a dream by Keir Smith at the front stick, and Little Skip was on hand to insert from 7 to put the Giants up 1 and O against the Rhino's for the first time in their history of soccer battles.

The purple uniforms had their green uniformed opponents on the back foot and Stubbings was still struggling to find the inside of the soccer goal with his kicks, as his bright ginger locks that could brighten up the dullest of autumnal days, constantly got in his eyes just as he swung his cleat to negative effect.

New found winger Harold Denness had found himself in the clear on 38 after a great kick from Kieran Le'Friett, but our Underground Owls guitar playing ace just couldn't find the composure as he kicked it real bad like a 6 year old girl who had never played football before to huge laughter from the Goal Sports subshack.

The home side were truly dominant, but the score line just couldn't be added too as the first of many face smashing snain storms came down to see the boys run in to the locker rooms for the half time oranges as fast as their little legs would carry them.

First quarter - 1 v neil

It was obvious the Rhino's were really scared of what was to come, as they took a real long time in the locker room, working on tactics and cuddling together for warmth from the real bad climate.

Whistle lord Stan Jackson sounded the hooter and the Giants pressed on for more goalshots to add to their measly one, and it would be TS7 who would go from being zero to hero, as he finally inserted real good.

After a well worked move Stubbings, 23, found himself on the 20, on his weaker left side, and with an array of skillmoves that Jay Jay Okocha would have been proud of he unleashed a real neat howitzer shell of a strike which finally saw the Rhino goal-denyer beaten by our ginger one, as the ball kissed the upright white beam and nestled in to his SGI. It was a great hit son!

"Tyson's on fire and your deefense is really scared" was being yelled from the home subshack by former player and long-time friend of Stubbings, Neil Prentice, and this seemed to spur him on even more as he visibly grew real happy, as he beat his opposite number and finished his second insertion of the game to put the boys up to 3 and O after 57.

Greymar and Seaside Tommy Wilde emerged out of the subshack, like the knights of Rohan arriving with Gandalf in the Lord Of the Rings - Return of the King scene, as they stripped out of their all in one jumpsuits, star jumped a couple of times and crossed the white line of battle, ready for action.

A warning for the Giants to concentrate as hard as they could would be the next action as a Giants goalkicked restart was headed straight back over the Giant back door, and Joe Logan didn't need to be asked for another kick as he kicked right past today's God Of the Goalmouth Charlie Hall and reduce the arrears to 2.

Hall had found himself promoted to the 1st team this week after usual gloveman Tom Peacock broke club rules midweek by ordering over the club limit of 3 takeaways per week which promptly saw him axed from the first team set up, and rightly so.

Stubbings, who had been the Catherine wheel of the days fireworks display, restored the 3 goal advantage on 76, as Plumpton, who showed the vision of a praying mantis, had the composure to pick him out in a crowded DBZ, and the flame headed forward finished his hatrick and with it sealed a date with the razor!

The excitement of any soccer clash can get to any soccer player and manager alike, and pre game Stubbings had offered his own head of hair to the lads in the event of a hatty occurring on the Bonfire night day clash, and the effort late doors had completed the hatty, and the new barnet would be his reward for being such a good kicker throughout the second half.

Another Logan goal, which again was finished with aplomb gave the away side hope, but almost from the restart beard loving Dan Pollard slammed home his second of the season from 20 yards and seal the W that see's the Giants move away from the foot of the league ladder.

Coach Plumpton was thrilled with the result as he told club journo Gail Hailstorm post-match "This is by far the best we have played all season, and but for some top draw goaltending by the Rosette stopper, and some proper dirt finishing in the first half we would have won this by a mile"

"It just goes to show if the little boys work hard, listen to the 18th best coach in Super League, and try their hardest - this is the outcome!" added coach.

Up next for the Giants is a huge game with the Edgehill Iron Pigs Res, who were the baddies who defeated the Rudstoners in last season’s League Trophy final in a real slobberknocker of a game!
