Back to football

After 6 months I've restarted going to the lunchtime kickabout down by the Thames. Not surprisingly, I'm not match fit but then that was never a description often applied to me when I used to play every week.

The game had a great turnout - must have been around 16 people - and I managed to be on the winning side (4-1 to the yellow and blue team). We did manage one man from each team in the Thames to retrieve drifting balls - very brave people. Normally the ball doesn't go in at all and we didn't have a spare so somebody had to get wet to make sure we had a full game.
I managed to avoid injury until the end when a I received a boot right across the top of the shin-pad. Typical.
