I feel like I'm resurrecting a sleeping giant here, I am thinking of getting as many of the old team's memories and stories together to put into our ESCLA newsletter/fanzine which we put together every few months.
I know it will be a very funny and interesting read.

I can't remember when Paddy Slavin passed away, although I went to the funeral. Memory plays tricks sometimes. Was Paddy involved?

so we had a chat at half time, the lads done all the talking, they knew what was the problem, and they solved it themselves,,
Come out for the 2nd half, and they made some changes, we didn't have enough players really, we played roll on/off subs, but were they had 15 players, we had 9, so we tired quicker.
There coach decided to have a little go himself and scored two quick goals., 5-2 down.
We played some great football, but they just had more pace, they were stronger and fitter, resting players all the time, our lads just tired more and more, although we still dominated, they were always countering and hurt ur once again.
so 6-2 down, we had a few chances, scoring once more before the whistle went.
6-3 against these lads felt lke a victory for us, we played a decent set of lads, and crawled off the pitch satisfied that we had given them a big test., not big enough for their coach to try and tap any of our players up, but, ,well we felt good..it was fun yno?
So Thursday coming,(13th) we have another friendly, this one is against Man City Fans team, they are an established league team, so it will be an even bigger test. Not sure of the venue at the moment, we are still sorting that out, but very much looking forward to it.
I won't be around, as I am on some Football show on C4, The Real Fan show I think its called,, but hopefully the lads have a great match and things start coming together.
Anyone in London or the South East who wants to come and play, coach, support, kickabout, drink dance etc please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org

Andrei will be making his debut against Man City, a former club that his dad played for whilst on loan.
We are still in need of players down here in London and the South East. If you play, or just want to come to training to keep fit, please contact me on EFCSOCIAL@OUTLOOK.COM. Wish us luck!
