Sils ride a white horse to Banbury (and people got) Cross.
By Sam Stephen
Second road trip ends in narrow defeat
An initially merry band of 11 made the far less scenic trip to Brackley last night to face a decidedly mixed age Banbury side that gave little quarter at the back whilst not creating much up front either. The game was decided by a single strike in the first half by the oppo that left Jim little chance but a much stronger second half showing by us unfortunately was not rewarded by any goal. Unfortunately most of the post match discussion in the showers, at the curry house and no doubt on the way home in the various cars was centered not so much on the result but on the nature of the attitude of some of their players but more importantly ours.
On a very positive note all of us made it to the local curry house, hopefully picture to follow on website if not done already, where we had the opportunity to toast Richard's 35th birthday making him an official vet. Hopefully his wife has purchased him some red trousers so that he will feel more at home whilst also looking his age :)
