Against all odds, my game of football took place this morning. Given the stupid amount of rain that’s fallen so far this winter, it’s been no surprise that pretty much every game of football I’ve had scheduled for a Saturday has been called off, yet the game today was confirmed as being very much on. That I’ve managed to play 3 games of football in 2014, albeit veterans’ football, is amazing.
Even more amazing is that my record this year so far stands at played 3, won 3, drew 1, lost 0. It’s an odd – but very welcome – feeling, stepping onto a pitch with a good chance of winning. It makes the decision over whether to retire from Saturday football and just concentrate on vets’ football all the more interesting.
