Old Sods Meet 8 – 24 November 2018

Location: Knowle West Road Ground



We’ve reached our 1 year anniversary. It’s been a fantastic 12 months, we’ve built great relationships, had a few guest players join us and have eaten plenty of pork pies! Oh, we’ve also played a fair bit of Subbuteo!

Session 8 saw a change of venue. Adam’s currently creating a stadium in the Cabin, so we’ve shifted to Richard’s house for this session at the Knowle West Road Ground. Leaving the beloved baize, we’ve switched over to Astro which caused players to alter their style of play.

Unfortunately Ian wasn’t able to attend this session due to a self inflicted injury, he was sorely missed and we all wish him a speedy recovery. Get well soon Spud!

As always, our matches revolve around a feast. We weren’t disappointed with our host providing us with a traditional Black Country dish – Groaty Dick Pudding. It was perfect for a dreary mid November day. If you’ve not tried it, it’s highly recommended. We also managed to scoff the obligatory Pork Pie and Black Pudding during the session, as well as a wonderful home made cheesecake to celebrate our first anniversary. I swear we’re all a stone heavier than we were 12 months ago!

Results:

Player Score Score Player

Andy 1 0 John

Rich 0 1 Swanny

John 0 0 Rich

Swanny 0 2 Adam

Adam 2 0 Rich

Andy 1 0 Swanny

Adam 0 1 Andy

John 0 1 Swanny

Adam 1 0 John

Andy 2 0 Rich



Table:

Player Played Won Drawn Lost G+ G- GD Points

Andy 4 4 0 0 5 0 5 12

Adam 4 3 0 1 5 1 4 9

Swanny 4 2 0 2 2 3 -1 6

John 4 0 1 3 0 3 -3 1

Richard 4 0 1 3 0 5 -5 1



We have a new Champion! Andy tops the league table for the first time with a perfect 4 wins from 4 games, not conceding a goal all day. We’ve all said it’s been coming for a while, the switch to Astro suited Andy’s game perfectly and has seen him reap the rewards. A well deserved victory for the Pykester!

Adam finished runner up this session, having topped the table last time. He initially struggled with the speed of the Astro, but soon got warmed up and starting banging in the goals. Perhaps he’s got used to having the home advantage?

Swanny finishes mid table, earning 2 victories and conceding 2 defeats. He has a very similar playing style to Andy, both enjoying success on the Astro. It’s great to see him join us again and hopefully he’ll be able to make the next session.

Having missed session 7, John was raring to go this time round. He’s becoming increasingly more difficult to beat, with a solid defensive display in all games. He just forgot to bring his shooting boots this session! We’ve been advised that he’s heading back to the training ground for a bit of practice prior to our next meet…..I think we should all be worried!

Despite finishing in fifth place, Richard’s performances this session were vastly improved compared to session 7. He’s avoided the heavy drummings of previous meets, working on his defensive play and even managing to get a few shots in against all opponents. The game between Richard and John finished 0-0, but could easily have been 5-5 had it not been for some wayward shooting and fantastic goalkeeping from both players.

It’s been a wonderful 12 months, hopefully the next 12 months will be equally as fun! We’ll return in 2019 for our next meet. Until then…..Pork Pie Fat Tongue!

It was obviously another most enjoyable day.

Well done on both the idea and continued interest.

Thank you. It certainly was an enjoyable day. We play to have fun, in the right spirit rather than being overly competitive. There probably more focus on food than there is subbuteo now!!

And long may it continue Adam...it's the magic formula imo, and why the 'Club', and interest from others to join us has been so successful.

We are a right mixed bunch of personalities...and on paper it shouldn't work...but I've never known such a diverse group get on so well.

It's playing for fun rather than competition that makes it work.

Food and drink and our passion for it, is now a great addition...add that to humour, banter, football, music, sport, Collecting and sharing Subbuteo, playing almost feels like a sideline lol

What shows it works...is how eager everyone is for the next meet...and how far some travel.

Wouldn't miss it for the world...unless one does ones ankle in lol
