ESQUINA Park Rangers Walking Football Team were in action on Friday 20th September, playing against Hondon Valley Flyers.
Beardy Geoff was Ref for this game and kept the boxing to a minimum.
Esquina pounced first with Stuart the former Chester Casual somehow nipping the ball into the net.
Big Dave Meldrum with more tattoos than Edinburgh, played in goal and kept out Hondon for a while until Big Andrew Webster tripped over his shoe-lace and encroached on the six-yard box giving Hondon a penalty.
Hondon stepped up and despite Dave’s best effort, scored making it 1-1.
Hondon went 2-1 up as the Esquina Players moaned about a high ball which deflected off a player’s nose. Geoff was having none of it and the goal stood.
With Esquina on the back foot, Dangerous Darren, managed to toe-poke the ball past their stranded keeper, making it 2-2.
Esquina had a couple of players sin-binned for two minutes each, Gordon being the first for an accidental slide tackle and Stuart for squaring up to the Hondon player who no-one can understand.
Into the last quarter and both teams were looking for the winner. It was Esquina’s persistence that paid off with Big Graham Cockburn toe-poking the ball into the corner of the net.
Esquina held on for a deserved 3-2 victory against a stubborn Hondon team.
Next Home Game is Friday September 27 at 11am against St. Patrick’s Evergreen.
All spectators welcome.
