Hey peeps.........

What a fine, fine day. Just back from queens after coming out victorious in the chemical engineering society 5-a-side footy tournament at the PEC. What make it hilarious is that none of our triumphant team do chemical engineering........MUAHAHAHA!!!! It really was a Hollywood story. First the girl who was meant to be playing for us (having a female in the team was compulsory but each female goal counted as 3!) suffered a bizarre injury and so she brought one of her mates down, who also plays for J'Town ladies footy team. So with that hurdle successfully negotiated we went down to the PEC only to be given the heartbreaking news that our team had not been entered!!! Apparently we had registered too late tho we were told at the time we were OK. However we were reinstated in the tournament after one of the teams didn't show up in time. So after thumping out opponents 4-0 and 11-0 in the group we then moved on the semi final where my mate Will won the game with a ferocious left foot drive into the bottom corner. In the final we went a goal down early before Will equalised. Then Yours Truly claimed his fourth goal of the tournament to put us 2-1 up. Another equaliser from them set my heart into a panic however Janice spanked a left foot shot into the top corner of the net from all of 12 yards to put us 5-2 up. Janice extended our lead to 8-2 before our worthy opponents clambered it back to 8-3. Will again fired home with 4 minutes to go to seal the victory, but there was still time for the opposition to get a late consolation. To the victor go the spoils and £20 each which is a fine prize for a bit of footy. Although I can't help but feel that the chemical engineers' will be pissed due to the fact that their money is going to civil students!

Remeber Formal money please this week and I'll see you all later.......
