Show of sporting excellence
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.
