Didsbury 4s promotion campaign started off with Preston 4s visiting the Armitage Centre, aka 'El Fortress'...

A sunny hot day, Didsbury already had a disadvantage as the match began with no less than 2 gingers in their midst.

With sun cream applied, the match started with Matty Taylor rolling back the years outpacing two defenders before slotting it in the bottom corner.

Another couple of goals followed in quick succession, then Lewis dribbled down the baseline and attempted to pull the ball back only for it to flick up into the air. Making sure that Didsbury maintain their reputation for playing 'erotic hockey' at all times, the big man, El General, El Sir, Mini thundered it bottom right corner putting all critics aside.

At half-time it was 4 nil to Didsbury.

After stern words from Grim at halftime, the second half started off in good fashion, except that Matty Taylor had traded in his hockey stick for a pitching wedge and was adamant the goal was in the car park.

As the second half continued a notable goal from Ben at right back was a particular highlight, dribbling down the baseline and literally figuratively taking the keepers pants down before slotting it in from 2 yards.

A motivational Paul kept the team going by saying "let’s play like it’s nil-nil" when in fact it was 8 nil. The game eventually ending up at 9 nil.

MOM: Matty Taylor goals
DOD: Mini for some unknown reason
Attendance: 30 waiting for the next game, but no Robin’s GF
