The Official match report

Tyson v Buster Douglas, the Crazy Gang v Culture Club and now this ….

The day didn’t start well. Arrived at Chez Spence at the appointed time. No answer. Tried again at which point the good Mrs. S appeared on the balcony (they have them in Cyncoed), Juliet style and announced he was still in the shower.

Pre - match shower anyone? What’s all that about.

Eventually he appeared and it was worth the wait. I read somewhere that Michael Carrick is alleged to be the best smelling footballer but I’d have our Spence up against him any day of the week.

Arrived at Leckwith and entered the changing room to be confronted with the sight of Brownie face down with Sean’s both hands around his upper thigh. Oh err Mrs……

Sean (sort of explained): ”it’s OK, my brother’s a qualified physio” (that’s up there with a different phone/same number).

Not to be outdone, Declan then performed the “downward dog”

Welshy then arrived. There was some discussion about him starting Spence as a false number 10, then having false nos. 1 - 11 and then eventually announced Spence as a right back! If you thought we were confused, imagine what his tactical wizardry was doing to Barry.

His mind games didn’t end there. He then managed to delay kick off for over an hour and lead Barry onto a rugby pitch. They were then made to wait as the groundsman changed the posts.
