Pictures from The Compere Cup

Whilst out for the usual daily stroll I called in at the two Compere Cup matches being played at Commonedge Road.

New Alliance side Waterloo FC were playing their first competitive game in a friendly against the Royal Oxford.  It was 1-0 at half time to the Waterloo but when I left the Royal had just equalised.

Waterloo FC.  Looking forward to the 2006/07 Season.

There's no such thing as a friendly as a few choice tackles spark a bit of handbags.

Over the dyke we had an interesting Compere Cup fixture between the Brannigans first team and a 'new look' Highfield Social.  After Highfield took the lead Brannigans came back to go in 2-1 ahead at the interval.  In the end Brannigans won the game 3-2.

Brannigans pair Brett Baker (left) & Martyn Percival, both contenders for the 'Most Impressive Tackle' Award, but for differing reasons.

A 'rumour starting' picture as Chris Days challenges Si Bowden.  A new signing for the Social ?

Surely not another season in prospect for these two ?  Veterans Chris Giles and Chris Pickering share a laugh……and a breather.   Watching these two race each other brought back memories of 'Chariots of Fire'.

Come on England !
