Disgraceful Place to Go - But Another Three Points on the Board
Published - 8th Mar 20

.....Birmingham St George`s on the league`s official website for fear of saying something that might be deemed `politically incorrect!

 

But I will say a few more things here!

 

It was simply a dreadful game on an awful pitch.

 

Firstly, the boys had to get changed in a computer school classroom!

 

Secondly, despite the email confirming the game saying they would be in red, they turned up on the pitch late - no warm-up - and with the same shirts, shorts and socks as us!!

 

Fortunately, I had a set of red shirts in my car!

 

The pitch itself was awful - and that’s being kind! There are some referees who wouldn’t have played it as it had big rocks in the centre circle!

 

We dug one out which was the size of a cricket ball!!

 

It was impossible to play proper football on a ploughed field but we won easily 7-3 so this is no sour grapes reporting.

 

Two of my players were threatened with being ‘knifed’ after the game and their coach - if that’s what he was - threatened my linesman/parent!

 

They are an embarrassment to a good league - to travel that far on a Saturday morning and be presented with all that - and no food - was awful.

 

The only upside of it is that we’ll not have to go there again and the four goals for Max Wynne, a welcome goal for Spencer Taylor after his goal drought, a debut effort from Alfie Bowdler and a 40-yard `shot` from Joe Hobson (or was it a bad cross!!).

 

The Junior Premier League is a really good standard – both on the off the field – but this Birmingham team are an exception.
