OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Inaugural Session
Date: 12 Nov 2017
Venue: Puffin’s Cabin

Attendees:
Spudski
ZuluBlue
SpeedwayMad
JohnClu48
Puffin

Pitches x 2
1 x indoor pitch (Black Flickmaster baize, plastic goals)
1 x outdoor pitch (Standard Pegasus Astro, metal goals)

Rules: Advanced
Equipment used: HW & LW

Remembrance Sunday 2017 saw the formation of a new OSC in the UK, OSC OS (Old Sods). The inaugural meeting saw 5 ISF members battle it out for the chance to lift the first trophy of what will hopefully be the start of a long campaign. Games were played both indoors and outside, with players pitting their wits not only against each other, but also the cold temperatures and gusty wind.

With varied levels of experience and skill, all games were played in the true spirit of Subbuteo, with lots of fun and laughter making for an enjoyable day’s play.

Games played inside were fast and frantic, with players having to avoid various obstacles as they manoeuvred around the pitch in the cramped conditions of the cabin. Games played on the outside pitch were open to the elements, with it being agreed prior to play commencing that ‘wind factor’ would play it’s part; if the wind moved the ball no ‘back’ could be called, the ball had to be played wherever it ended up resting (which often would only be for a couple of seconds before a gust blew it away!).

Spudski 4 3 1 9 3 6 15
ZuluBlue 3 2 3 11 8 3 11
JohnClu48 3 1 4 5 9 -4 10
SpeedwayMad 0 0 8 1 15 -14 0


Shot of the day: Goes to JohnClu48, whilst playing outside, he took a throw in within his own half. The ball moved forward approx. 6 inches, then a gust of wind blew it back 7 inches and straight out of play!

Goal of the day: Goes to SpeedwayMad. Having not played for 30+ years, it didn’t take Speedway long to get to grips with the basics. He managed to score an absolute belter in the top corner during his final game of the day. Hopefully we’ll see many more in the future!

Thanks for that Adam...great report and photos.

Ralph...you'd have loved it. Shame you live so far away. If you were willing to travel, you'd be most welcome. John travelled from Leeds and stayed overnight. It was a brilliant day...in true Oldsubbuteo spirit.

Games were played just like Subbuteo was intended. Plenty of curling action and interceptions, some fantastic goals and some really nice performances by everyone. Loved how quickly Richard got into the flow of it.

I haven't laughed so much playing Subbuteo before...still got a big grin on my face.

Thanks for the great hospitality. We lunched like Subbuteo kings...A mixture of West/Black Country Tapas ( Cheese, Charcuterie, Pork Pies, Black pudding and honey) and Northern 'nuts' ;-) and a nod to our Italian friends with scrummy pizza...all washed down with copious amounts of Tea, coffee, Cider and Real Ale.

Even Smudge the cat was jumping for joy ;-)

Can't wait til the next one...many thanks again.

Thumbs up! Sounds like a great day. The atmosphere is tangible through the pictures. Wish Subbuteo was more popular here in Germany.

Well done lads. Sounds like it was a special event. Imagine that in a shed every Saturday throughout the season! Magic.
