Show of sport­ing ex­cel­lence

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views - Ian Rogers Grosvenor Av­enue Bourne

On Satur­day af­ter­noon I wit­nessed an in­cred­i­ble dis­play of raw courage.

Whilst we have ex­peri-

enced a sum­mer of sport­ing ex­cel­lence from the balmy clime­sofRio, the­match­which took place at the Abbey Lawn eclipsed them all for me.

Tor­ren­tial down­pour, light­ning con­stantly flash­ing and tremen­dous claps of thun­der were the back drop to a Bourne Town dis­play out of the Roy of the Rovers man­ual, from one nil down to a very good Irch­ester United side.

The Wakes clawed their way back into the game even­tu­ally run­ning out win­ners 2 - 1.

The sadly sparse crowd gave both sides a stand­ing ova­tion due not only to a fine game of foot­ball but also the courage on dis­play.

Thank you to the man­age­ment and team.
