Memory Pain

There is a video of a try in an amateur vets game circulating in the press and on social media –

You’ve got to hand it to the bloke – it is funny!

I sort have mixed emotions though – the game was at the ground that used to be owned by Askeans and where I played for almost 30 years.

It remains a source of much anger amongst Askeans that the ground was sold from under us by some wankers in the Askean association – a bunch of old boys who didn’t like the rugby club.

I am also upset that I scored a number of tries just as spiffing on that ground and no bastard bothered to film them.

Mind you back then the cameras were the size of Bournemouth and needed a bloke with an engineering degree to work them.

So you’ll just have to imagine some of my spectacular efforts.
