Old Fox, new Andy

Wednesday, 23 November 2011

Is with a saddened heart that I have to announce the retirement of the midfield general, the complete footballer, the Silver Fox, Mr Ian "Foxy" Fox. In his own words:

"As for next season, I've had a long hard think about this and I'm going to stand down and let someone get promoted to hardcore.

As much as I enjoy the football, I don’t seem to have the same verve that I’ve had in previous seasons and this is probably because I’m enjoying my golf more.

It’s not fair of me to keep my place from someone who is committed to playing on a more regular basis.

However, I don’t intend to totally disappear as I’m hoping that I would be considered for the odd game if you’re struggling with numbers and hopefully still get continued invites to any of the Fitbaw extravaganzas."

Foxy goes out after his injury guarantees him the Smelly Sannie award as the player to hold bottom position at the end of the season. That means he's won POTY, MOTM, MVP and the Smelly Sannie - all the major "awards" and the first person to do so. He also hold the dubious honour of one of only two people to walk off the park mid-game because of an argument - he really has it all!

Hopefully this won't be the last we see of him as he's still wanting to play the odd game but it does mean that there is a place for promotion come Xmas time!

Speaking of new blood, there's a new player tonight - a new Andy! This one, however, has played a bit. Andy, until recently, played amateur level football so can't be all that bad. He says he's OK which is a sure sign that he's pretty good. I'm sure we'll find out tonight.
