Rosette Rhinos - NeilGoal Sports Giants - 7 – Beeby (3), Stubbings, Prentice, Pollard, GreymarThe Eyres Scaffolding MOTM – Dan Pollard (Pictured)Attendance - 23By Randy Bloomshield, Scarborough News of The World.
Mike Beeby was the most scoringest of guys today as he bagged himself a hat tip and had a fight with the Rosette Pete post-match, in which he lost - as he attempted to take home the match ball.
Sadly for Beebs this is only Super League B and everyone knows you only actually get to keep the ball in the big time that is Super League A!The squad were my psyched than a set of nerds sporting jam jar glasses at the mere announcement of a new Star Trek movie, as the Super League soccer would indeed return to their lives after the Scalby Playing Fields soccer stadium somehow past a pitch inspection.
(Good luck if you are due to do PE there in the next few weeks!!)Bolstered by the inclusion of long time signature, short game time player – Daniel Appleboi, the team sheet and subshack was brimming with more talent than a strip clubs stage at primetime.
The Giants got 2k17 off to a frenetic pace as Beeby and his soccer buddies kicked the Rosette Rhino’s asses real good, leaving the Rhinos squadron looked sadder than the woman on every street who goes proper ham on the Christmas decorations and ends up in tears the day she takes them down sometime around February 17th.
(Big up yaself Jan aiiiiight)Beebs, who was playing in an unfamiliar strike role having played pretty much every single position in his fledgling Giants career for first and res side – was absolutely bossing it! Striking a resemblance in playing style to Belgium strike ace Christian Benteeq (Pictured), obviously in his Villa days when he was actually half decent, and definitely not when he went to Liverpool and everyone realised he was bad at PE and couldn’t run good.
On 18 minutes Beebs struck his first dagger to the Rhino heart, which would in fact find him jailed if he did this in real life, as he leapt on to a loose ball in the DBZ and slammed home with a left footed kick that was good and nice.
It was a well-deserved goalshot for the away side and the Giants were on absolute fire as they made a mockery of the playing surface with some truly scintillating tikka-tikka style of play – bopping the ball around at pace and with real composure, which in turn gave Coach Plumpton a real wigwam in his soccer undies.
Chances came and went for Prentice, Pollard and Stubbings, but in fairness it was a hard one for the latter player with the keeper actually stood up and in his goal so he couldn’t run around him.
Plumpton also fired wide from a good 6 yards after gobbling up a sumptuous kick from Stubbings on pullback from the DBZ touchline.
The pressure paid dividends, and a swirly whirly flag kick from TS7 saw a scramble just in front of the Rhino’s overworked goal denyer, and it would be that man Beebs who would goalshot from 4 yards once again to double his, and the club in purples lead at 2s.
A pathetic attempt of a freekick from Plumpton after a minor felony on TS7, floated straight to the guy in the soccer goal and he rightly laughed at the proper poor effort, but the Rhino’s were doing deefense like the “New year New Me” mums at their very first bums and tums class at the local gym – and you guessed it – Beebs would be dat guy to capitalise once again!Beeby, who is the 2nd highest scoringest soccer player in the whole of the Goal Sports soccer franchise inserted his third of the tie after great work by Neil Prentice, who in turn was having a real nice game of PE himself.
A 2 yard finish took Beeb’s total distance of goals scored to at least double figures but our hero doesn’t care how far out they are as he’s wheeling away projecting his trade mark “loveheart” cello whilst singing Justin Biebers “Love Me”, which coincidently is the 4th track from his Bieber tribute act playing live at the Dog & Bone in Driffield next Saturday evening.
Tickets are fairly priced at £18 per person and £30 for a meet, greet and happy finish.
First period – Neil v 3The Rhino’s fans could be forgiven for chanting “We hate this god damn soccer stadium, it only fills us full of sadness” as the 2nd period kicked off and their boys in crocodile green continued to struggle to play good, as the Giants went for the jugular.
Prentice, the ex-Seamer, Manor, Ayton, Nelson man made the 3 points secure on 55 minutes after a good kick from Stubbings in set up.
Prentice is the clubs 3rd best strike goal scorer as today’s insertion of the soccer ball in to the soccer goal saw him net his 16th in 34 appearances.
Not bad for a fat lad.
It was turning out to be quite a performance and it was time for a huge moment in the clubs history to unfold and on 64 minutes a huge landmark was achieved as Appleboi finally made his debut as the sky was full of the sounds of hand slaps and hugs as he replaced and embraced Jake Adams who made his way in to the subshack after still feeling the effects of his Xmas bender from the weekend of the 16th December.
Like an un-named Giant defender in the bedroom it didn’t take long for the magic to pop out of Appleboi as he knocked down nice for Stubbings and he exploded the soccer ball with a no bouncer that saw the score rise one more to fives.
The midfield quagmire was proving a challenge and a need for the lofted through ball approach at times, and some exquisite kick to friend play by all Giants parties throughout today’s tie saw a huge number of chances created throughout as Dan Pollard the Bearded Assassin ran riot with a passing range only equalled by the impressiveness of his winter beard which most definitely does not contain any remnants of last night’s tea.
Only moments after leaving the subshack himself Greymar da Silva Santos Júnior expertly dispatched a stain to the Rhino goaldenyers sheets and Dan Pollard capped a MOTM performance with a well-deserved goal after another splendid soccer pass and move that saw him find space on 20 and goaltuck in thereafter.
Coach Plumpton was more than pleased at his sides start to the New Year as he took a few moments with club reporter Gail Hailstorm, who had a great Christmas to project his voice in to words at the post match interview.
“It was truly beautiful what we just performed out there and if it had been some ballet down in the posh London theatres, folk would be chatting about this for bare years to come”“Can what we did out there be replicated consistently is the question I have just put to the boys but if we can do just that we could indeed continue our quest for world domination and who knows, maybe even make our families proud?!”Up next for the Giants is another huge relegationalization contest with fellow low ranked side the Duchess Dragons at Flixton next Saturday.
