Management’s underhanded plans revealed!

To the casual observer it may have looked like any other day on the Steampacket gardens, as the team gave its all once more, however little did the team know that the Management Committee has begun a new regime of “covert training”.

It has been revealed that it was no casual interest that brought new-comer Rodney Morvell to the Steampackets. He has, in fact, been hired as one of many covert trainers, whose job it is to help the Steampackets improve their skill level, without the “Teacher/Student” environment of a standard clinic. Anyone who has witnessed Rodney’s practical demonstrations of the Off-Side rule now has a much better understanding of how planting a player directly in front of goals can be used to an attacking team’s advantage.

But the newest technique seen on the field this week was displayed by “Guru” Neil. By sticking his leg out in what can only be described as a backward block, Neil performed a manoeuvre that made him look a cross between a professional ten pin bowler and a debutante in the middle of her curtsey. Dubbed the “Vogue Block” by his team mates, Neil says he got his inspiration from Diego Ma(ra)donna, that great South American footballer (and part time pop star) who once sang: “Strike a pose there’s nothing to it.”

If you wish to take part in this osmosis of knowledge, join the team at Steampacket Gardens every Tuesday and Friday
