Away league match played on 27 April 2014.
Kicked off at 10:30 AM

With no water and no changing room available when severely depleted Greshams turned up at Kesgrave High School it promised to me a long day ahead as Interim Manager Hamblin had assembled a motley crew of 10 including the returning Snelly after he had run out of 2 for 1s on Bacon Double cheese burgers..........and whats that??? A strong wind had blown Ryan Bugg up to Kesgrave to make 11 plus Ole Gunnar Mike Potter on the bench ready to live up to his fox in the box reputation. Despite being 2-0 down moving to the latter stages of the half...which in truth could have been 4/5, Gibbo finished smartly in the area to go in 2-1 down at half time with a much improved end to the half. Deciding the best way to combat the constant stream of bodies bombing forward it was Sam Martin who was chosen to man mark the Elite Captain who was causing problems in the centre. With his never say die attitude and tigerish in the tackle he successfully took him out of the game. A fantastic start to the second half which saw the Hunn equalise was causing the Elite number 15 up top to spontaneously combust - blaming everyone else around him including launching a tirade of abuse at Ole Gunnar Potter on the line as his stomach edged ahead of the Greshams back 4. The midfield by now had the wood over Elites with Gibbo and Matt getting on the ball. Further goals by the slightly fortunate Hunn and composed Norfolk saw Greshams go ahead 4-2 with the Elite 15 making clear to his manager he wouldnt be playing Sundays next year and was seen sucking his thumb and hitting the ground on half way as Norfolk finished. A lucky finish to make it 4-3 which was shinned in the far corner was the only other brief worry as Greshams held out to win 4-3 against all odds. Dedicated by all the lads to Cashens mum who sadly passed away forcing the Cashens to miss the game. RIP. Rob was calm, assured and reliable as ever in goal - a real cracking find! Froudy had yet another good game at right back showing his agility, intelligence, good technical ability and caused problems for them from deep. Hamblin and Cook were as solid and dependable as ever defending very well in particularly in the second half. After a slight blemish on the first goal Snelly had his best game of the season and had a good game - solid at left back! Matts two assists and creativity were crucial and he adapted well to his left midfield role from his established centre role - steady on them long shots though mate! Gibbo showed his quality second half and had a Cuban on, instrumental second half - despite asking 15 didnt have a lighter! Ryan worked hard on the right denied by the refs whistle at the end when he surely would have stuck it in the top corner. The Hunn with two goals proved he is always a threat - feed the hunn, feed the hunn...FEED THE HUNN AND HE WILL SCORE! Norfolk had his best game of the season with great workrate and composed finish linking up well between midfield and attack. Your Man of the match however this week goes to Sam Martin - constantly does the dirty work, runs for fun, great attitude and a very good addition to the squad. Well played mate!
