The sellout crowd sang ..... 1-0 to the old mods ...... 1-0 to the old mods ....... 1-0 to the old mods ..........1-0 to the Ooold mods ! ........ Boring , boring Mods !!
Far from boring , this was a good game between 2 evenly matched teams . Altofts started the better and controlled the game for 1st 25 mins , partly due to Mods players being knackered after Birch intense warmup . ' Good teams always warmup for 120 mins ' says The Mad Mods Manager . Then after goalscoring midfielder Josh ' Venus ' Williams smashed in a unstoppable freekick on 30 mins Mods played really well . Solid at the back , young throwback Todd outstanding and good performances from the Browns and Wilko . Unorthodox keeping from Tom ' Cleansheet ' Day and responsible midfield play from Venus and Old Clem . All 4 forwards put in a ' shift ' , Captain Pounca skillful as ever , Jonjo and Playboy Wilson always dangerous from right and left and Si Lewis did everything a good striker should do except score the goal his hard work deserved . The 3 subs Super Danny Forest , Brendan ' t be sure ' Gilligan and Jake ' Serena ' Williams came on and added skill and graft to the team performance . Overall a deserved victory and in the end should have been 2 or 3 nil .
In the aftergame interviews a tearful Birch said ' I'm proud of the lads today , it was a very important win . Lets see if we can keep going now and fight for this League ' . Pass the tissues !
