Cod Almighty man of the match: Luke Waterfall & Ryley Towler

So just who is our five o’clock hero?

Well, there's something about Harry our irrepressible clockwork orange that always leads us to his door. It's all those long and winding roams. But let's take the road less travelled and laud the lords of leaping, Rowdy and Big Luke, together a Towler of strength.

Our gaffer says

Oh tiny Town Tyke, tell us what's the story for this autumn glory?

"It's a good place to work, it's a good place to be".

More on this

Their gaffer says

He has yet to emerge from the Moaners' Corner Cafe.



Another important clue has emerged as we follow the Mariners Mystery Machine taking us on adventures all around the Bananaramaworld, solving strange and hilarious mysteries.

Character. You may be a character, but that doesn't mean you have it. This Town have it.

Hard work, team work, working out the opposition, working on ways to beat the man. Work, work, work. The back four were magnificent against big, brutish bullies, Fox and Clifton particularly effective disrupters, and even Eric O was scampering and scuttling back to nick and nack off Surrey shins.

There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long, but who among us doesn't now believe that this team, this club can work it out.


Zoinks, Scooby.

These sharp Cards are very good at what they do – ping-pong off Effiong. They're big, they're fast, they're relentless rock and rollers. If teams sit back they'll stick it in the mixer for the big blokes to bully at set pieces. If teams attack them they'll catch 'em on the break. It's not hard to see how they steamroll the glitterati away from home.

In short, they are long of leg and long of ball and are exceedingly well constructed to disrupt this league of inflated egos and expectations. Yet another minnow with muscle that with a fair winter wind could sneak into the play-offs.

Basically, a better Bromley.

Grimsby 'til I die... or cry?

You know that life's been good to us so far when even a Mr Purple is purring.

Official warning

Mr S Jackson

Apart from forcing Big Luke to go off the pitch after his footwear farce, there's nothing much to moan about. This is not why refs exist.

Adequate, ample, all round all right: 8.234

Readers' digest

When you find yourself in a strange town break it up, burn it up, shake it up, break it up.
