Old Sods Meet 5 – 14 July 2017

Location: The Cabin

It’s been a long time between sessions 4 and 5 as the Old Sods played in the Stoke OS tournament in June. All 5 regular Olds Sods players attended the Stoke tournament and represented the club well. Ian and Adam both qualified from their groups to enter the knockout stages of the main competition. Unfortunately both lost their knockout games, playing well but ultimately not progressing further. Andy, Richard and John all competed in the Plate competition, with Andy and John contesting the Final! Andy brought home the Plate trophy, the first for the club. Pork Pie Fat Tongue!

Session 5 saw a very welcome guest appearance from Mick Hammonds from Wolverhampton TFC. Playing with the old HW bases and small 18mm ball was a whole new challenge for Mick, who is used to playing the FISTF game. Read on to see how he fared against the Old Sods.

Summer time is all about 1 thing, barbeques. We certainly didn’t disappoint, with a massive meat fest on offer for the players during the wonderful warm weather we’re having in the UK….it’s a rarity even for summertime!

Games were played in the Cabin (aka the sweat box) and outside (yes, we’re back outside!). Adam recently picked up some Hasbro Throw In figures and Corner kickers from the France 98 box set, which are surprisingly great fun to play with. For this session, we made a home ruling that all thrown ins and corners had to be taken using this equipment. It made some fantastic, hilarious and bizarre results!



Here’s the results from session 5:

Location Player Score Score Player

Cabin Ian 2 1 Adam

Outside Andy 0 0 John

Cabin Rich 0 1 Mick

Outside Ian 2 1 Andy

Cabin John 1 0 Rich

Outside Mick 0 0 Adam

Cabin Ian 2 0 John

Outside Adam 3 1 Rich

Cabin Andy 1 1 Mick

Outside Ian 3 0 Rich

Cabin Adam 0 0 Andy

Outside John 0 4 Mick

Cabin Ian 1 1 Mick

Outside Adam 1 1 John

Cabin Andy 4 0 Rich



Final Table:

Player Played Won Drawn Lost G+ G- GD Points

Ian 5 4 1 0 10 3 7 13

Mick 5 2 3 0 7 2 5 9

Andy 5 1 3 1 6 3 3 6

Adam 5 1 3 1 5 4 1 6

John 5 1 2 2 2 7 -5 5

Richard 5 0 0 5 1 12 -11 0



Ian retains the trophy from session 4, topping the table again with an impressive 4 wins and a draw. I don’t know whether it was the sunshine, the sardines or the cider, but something certainly clicked this session!

A great performance from our guest player Mick saw him finish in second place, winning 2 and drawing 3 of his games. We all hope he enjoyed the days play and he’s welcome back any time.

Andy sneaks into 3rd on goal difference. Another impressive performance from Mr P saw him lose just 1 game all day. He’s looking to build on that Plate final win, don’t be surprised to see him top the league in the next couple of sessions.

Adam’s results today were mixed, finishing 4th with a meagre performance compared to his usual standards. Maybe one too many burgers and ciders affected his performance today? An improvement is required next time.

John performed exceptionally well with his Pendle Falcon flats today, recording a win and 2 draws. Reaching the final at Stoke goes to show how well his game is coming along. Expect more good things from John in the next couple of sessions.

Richard is used to holding up everyone at the foot of the table, but despite some heavy loses today, his game play is coming along very nicely. He scored a fantastic goal against Adam from open play. We’re all positive that his goal keeping (or lack of!) will improve over the next few sessions. With a newly built pitch, he’s got no excuse now to not practice and will be hosting some sessions in the near future.

We didn’t get chance to play any flats / doubles games this time, mainly due to the warm weather. We’ll look to bring these back next session as we all enjoy them.

Until the next time…..keep on flicking!

Pork Pie Fat Tongue!
