The meeting of the Clevedon and Snostell blazers saw another close encounter between their teams.
This game only had two tries, but more excitement than the Blazeteers could cope with. They huddled together in little groups around the pitch, trying to keep one another upbeat about the outcome of the game, but with a man like Pottsy in their midst, they were fighting an uphill battle.
The Cobweb Corner chieftain chose to stay with his lovely wife and fortunately remained impervious to the Pottsy doom mongering.
However, there was one moment of angst for him and it came out of the blue.
The culprit should've known better given his military background, but shockingly chose to address the Chiefess as "Roothie". There was uproar and for a moment, the former RM feared for his life. "My name is Ruth and don't you forget it" she said and received such a grovelling apology that she had drag him off his knees to buy her a drink.
Those that saw this incident will never forget it, especially after the Chief remarked "Now you know why I drink so much" and was immediately put in his place by she-who-must-be-obeyed.
An exciting and well won game for Clevedon and thoroughly entertaining off it.
Next week, Clevedon are away to Thornbury for 15:00 kick-off. Blazers are compulsory for those that have them.
