Not Even 'Jesus!!!' Can Save The Manics

After last weeks 3-2 defeat at the hands of The Manics Reserves, Prince Of Wales were keen for revenge. It was a good game. It was a close game.

The Manics started brightly, a clever through ball by David Fenton gave this seasons top scorer Lee Blackman the opportunity to score with a sweet lofted effort to make it 1-0. The Prince replied swiftly to equalise.

Manics took the lead again through David Comper only to be pegged back once again by a determined Prince side. Manics restored the advantage with another goal from the prolific Lee Blackman, slotting home from Westwood’s incisive pass to make it 3-2.

However, the resilient Prince equalised for the third time, a goal that ruffled the Manic feathers. The Prince were now in the ascendancy and their pressure paid off as they took a 4-3 lead with 20 minutes remaining. Manics struggled to draw level as chances went frustratingly close.

Not even captain Chris Adams’ cries for “JESUS!” could assist the boys in blue and white. He rose for the corner for all our sins which lead to the Princes 5th goal. This left “Jesus!“ to suffer the defeat with all his team. Alan Matthias sat forlorn…his hair telling sorry tales.

If the Prince felt that last weeks score flattered the Manics, then the shoe was certainly on the other foot as the Manics took nothing from a game from which they deserved more…
