Cup Victories

Leamington FC don't have a boing equivalent but they did win a League Cup penalty shoot out yesterday to get to the semi-finals.

My new hero is recent signing Andy Crabtree who organised his defence with a non-stop two hour rant and scored from the spot.

Richard Adams, star striker quite rightly targetted by better clubs, had a shocker. We may yet keep him.

The referee was about to book the Coalville left back after a terrible foul. We encouraged him to get up to take his punishment and stop feigning injury, but were content to see him carried off with a suspected broken leg instead. Ooops.

There is always panic in the ranks at the New Windmill Ground when a stretcher is required. The four bearers didn't have matching paramedic outfits but consisted of two stewards, a guy in a black tracksuit from Leamington Juniors and a feller in a nightmarish mustard jacket only preferred by local TV presenters nearing retirement and called to open a new shopping centre.

1-1 at full time
2-2 after extra time
5-4 on penalties

Good game.
