4 November 2006

Rrrrrricky Rrrrrravenhill cracks in a last-minute goal as a battling and gutsy performance from Town sees a deserved last-gasp victory against Bastard Franchise Scum FC. We can dream, eh. The truth is far bleaker: Rrrrrricky's goal is barely deserved as Town's whole team - let alone the defence - goes AWOL, letting the visitors put three tame goals past a bewildered Phil Barnes. The last ten minutes of the game are witnessed by what seems like half of the official attendance of 3,268, as supporters stream for the exits when BFSFC net for the third time. Those early leavers missed the highlight of the game: a string of fireworks exploding beyond the Osmond, each pretty explosion greeted by a cheer of "hooray!" Town slip another place in the league to 22nd, three points ahead of the Fat Fraudster's Boston United.

Kevin James, stretchered off after an awkward fall half an hour into the game, is sidelined for "six to twelve weeks" with a dislocated shoulder, according to the GTFC CLBTXT service. He remains with Town until 27 January 2007, however. Graham Rodgerses tells Radio Humberside that the club is definitely in a relegation fight now and the team needs some firepower now rather than December (when Gary Cohen and Luton's Michael Reddy are due back). He also thinks the fans have been "patient" and "fair". Did he hear the Pontoon calling "we want Rodger out"?
