Farewell Matheson

Last Friday saw the Steampackets play a testimonial game to one of its tallest members, Anthony Matheson.

True to his recent game form, Matheson, who is spending the next year on a European fact finding mission for the Steampackets, decided not to attend the game held in his honour.

“I thought about coming along, but then I decided to ‘Do a Victor’ as they say,” said Matheson, referring to ex-Steampacket Victor Chen, who began the trend of not turning up to your own tribute game.

Matheson will begin his fact-finding mission in Germany, the home of this year’s World Cup. “I’ll be scouring Germany for the best talent the world has to offer. I also hear there’s some soccer games on while I’m there, so I might go to one of them, too.”

Matheson will continue throughout the rest of Europe, constantly keeping an eye out for any potential Steampackets. “I’ve wanted to go to Amsterdam ever since I saw Pulp Fiction, and I’m hoping to find a few players in Spain. I think that anyone who thinks running with the bulls is a good idea has the right mentality to be a Steampacket. I’ll then head over to England, but I don’t expect to find much sporting ability there.”

If you have the required lack of self-preservation instincts, and think you can fill Matheson’s size 16 shoes, then come along to Steampacket park on Tuesdays and Fridays.
