At Weybourne Road the Reds were stung
The Hornets nicked three points;
A game that slipped away and put
Noses right out of joints!
The Shannocks started brightly and
A trip on Lawrence Cheese,
Allowed, on four, Cary to fire
Home from the spot with ease.
The lead did not last very long,
A free-kick on the left,
Swung in – and was glanced neatly home
With our ‘buzz’ now bereft.
Tim Cary went close for the hosts
And Debenham worked hard;
A solid side – that versus pace
In defence would be scarred.
During the break, out on the pitch
A very welcome sight:
Big Nelly! Could he be back to
Give defenders a fright…
The sun shone as the second half
Quickly got underway,
And soon after, a rocket launched
Did NASA’s go astray…
Graeme Hinton let one rip,
His screamer smashed their net,
A better goal in any league
You’d be lucky to get!
The visitors gained strength and with
Just twenty-five to go,
A cool finish to Jacko’s left
Dealt us another blow.
And five later they took the lead,
Rogers with the assist
As this game, sadly for Shannocks
Took yet another twist!
We tried – but it was not to be;
A crazy, bizarre glitch,
Summed up in added time when our
Corner flew off the pitch!
On blunders – Debenham cashed in
And then they shut-up shop;
A win, that in truth, they deserved
All mess – up they did mop!
We play again on Tuesday week
And we’ll recharge our motors,
To get back to those winning ways
Against the Yarmouth Bloaters!
