Always hard to tell someone Tony when there is a twitter block in force!
Just read that 4,153,237 people got married last year, not to cause any trouble but shouldn't that be an even number?

His mate Laurie has now rocked up at Stamford - no doubt to be verbally abused by Drury for 90 minutes for a few Saturdays before being bombed out after a poor performance.

Not sure why Frecks thought bringing him up two leagues for a second time would be any different and guess what.....it wasn't :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I wonder where he will go next i:)

Seeing as Jack McGovern has now rocked up at Corby, this is probably the right thread for this wonderful piece of work.

http://www.corbytownfc.co.uk/teams/170483/news/more-woe-for-corby-as-greenbacks-claim-their-first-1965715.html

Another disappointing performance and another defeat sees Corby Town's season continue to unravel in front of their eyes. Manager David Bell is correct in saying that it is too early to press the panic button. But the current run of four successive defeats cannot be allowed to stretch any further.

Man for man the Steelmen are as good as anybody at this level but they do not appear to be gelling as a team and are too often playing as eleven talented individuals. One or two might have to be sacrificed in order to bring in others who may be a better fit into the team shape.

Not enough passes are finding men in white - or blue on this occasion - and many that do are forcing the recipient to stretch for the ball and so struggle to get it under control.

It is certainly true to say that at Bedworth the Steelmen had far more attempts on goal than their hosts. But the only number that matters is that total which go into the net and in the last four games that has amounted to just two.

Corby opened up the Bedworth defence down the right early on but home goalkeeper James Martin blocked Jack McGovern's shot to concede a corner which came to nothing. This was the only time that Martin was called into serious action as the Steelmen's efforts were all wayward.

Steven Leslie shot narrowly wide either side of half time, Sam Warburton blasted the ball high over the bar when well placed in the centre of the penalty area and Sam Mulready also hit an angled shot off target when Corby supporters were expecting to see the net ripple.

Mulready was also unfortunate to see a back header bounce to safety off a post but Corby's clearest opportunity was probably the one which fell to his strike partner McGovern. Martin's goal kicks ranged from average to poor and his poorest of the afternoon landed at the feet of McGovern midway inside Greenbacks' territory. The Corby striker elected to take the ball forward instead of attempting a first time shot past the stranded 'keeper but he was tackled by Mark Albrighton just outside the area and the chance was gone.

Ultimately Corby were undone by an overweight forty year old with a golf bag full of clubs to his name. Iyesden Christie's professional heyday with the likes of Mansfield Town and Leyton Orient may be over ten years in the past but he proved that their is still life in the old dog yet.

After 24 minutes Christie tangled with Jason Lee inside the penalty area and went down like the proverbial sack of spuds. It was a slightly dubious penalty call but referee Mr Bradley Hall (who looked like a 10-year-old who had slicked his hair back to look older - about 12!) was suitably impressed and awarded the spot kick which was comfortably converted by Levi Rowley.

Then in the 88th minute, with Corby pushing forward in search of a late equaliser, Rowley outpaced Jamie Anton in a run he had begun inside his own half and crossed for Christie to supply the easiest of final touches - although questions must be asked about how he had outrun the chasing defenders without the aid of motorised transport.
Saturday's re-arranged home fixture against fellow early season strugglers dronfield FC is now a massive game for both clubs. Let us hope it will be the Steelmen who riser to the occasion.

BEDWORTH UNITED:- James Martin; Ryan Smith, Luke Rowe; Elliott Parrott, Jamie McAteer, Kyle Cartwright; Mark Albrighton, Reece Blacmore (substitute Kieron Brehon), Iyesden Christie (substitute Jackson Downie), Levi Rowley, Richard Blyth (captain). Unused substitutes: Dominic Perkins, Jacob Sturgess, Ricardo Dudley.

CORBY TOWN:- Paul Bastock; Connor Kennedy (substitute Philip Trainer), Jason Lee; David Bell, Kern Miller (captain), Jamie Anton; Jordan Crawford, Steven Leslie, Jack McGovern, Sam Mulready, sam Warburton. Unused substitutes: Miles Smith, Conor Marshall, ryan Bell, Jordan O'Brien.

REFEREE:- Mr Bradley Hall.

ATTENDANCE:- 204.

After reading the opening line of that report, I thought I'd see how bad a start they've had.

I think fortunes will change for them now with stocky Lee Beeson joining. That is the fortunes of the burger van not the football :shock:

I have no gripe with Jack McGovern, but in the spirit of this thread, he is now back at Lincoln United.

Also, the man Frecks thinks is going to stop Gainsborough shipping goals for fun.......Kern Miller! And they paid ACTUAL money for him.
