BHappy image Gah, pre-season’s rubbish, isn’t it?  Half-arsed loafing around, “it’s all about fitness at this stage”.  Everyone gets a run out, result doesn’t mean anything.

27th July 2005- Friendly, Dulwich Hamlet 1 Watford XI 2

This game was part of the ‘fee’ agreed when we signed Dulwich player Omari Coleman in 2004. However by the time we played them Coleman had already been shown the door and joined Lincoln City (see Editor’s notes for more info)

It was fairly clear that Watford had designated this as a contractual obligation match that they didn’t really need to bother about. Aidy wasn’t there, of course, so Keith Burkinshaw was in charge for the evening. No-one from the Watford camp managed to hand in a team sheet before the match, which didn’t impress the Dulwich PA man. It also made life rather difficult for the travelling Hornets, as when the team finally emerged from the tunnel it appeared to consist of ten young lads plucked from the checkout counter at the next-door Sainsbury’s, plus Paul Devlin.
