We journeyed down to Debenham
To play at Friends’ Meadow,
The wind was gushing manically
And in strength seemed to grow!
The Shannocks had the better start
With chances carved out well,
But come the second half, the hosts
Absconded from their shell!
Although it was not right until
The dying moments when
A twist and cross from George Abbott
Helped Ash add to his pen.
He lost his marker easily,
From close range volleyed home,
Leaving the Debenham defence
To, from their mouths, all foam!
It’s two in two for Jarvis now,
A top signing he’s been,
But sadly, with the final touch
The football gods were mean!
The Hornet’s Seccombe headed home
A cruel blow, but we’ll take
The positives, a point away
Our heads we shall not shake!
In tough conditions, over all
A point apiece was fair,
And through this brand new learning curve
Write us off if you dare!
Next week we travel down to March
Again we’re on the road,
Chris Wigger and his great tactics
The teams’ brains will decode!
The Reds have settled in so well
Each week they give their all,
It’s such a pleasure to witness
This passionate football!
