Netball reports thus:
Too,s lost this sat 6-30 against Skylarks who are currently unbeaten this season. An unfortunate accident in the first quarter sent our Kerry Collins to Frenchey A&E with a dislocated little finger, ouch! Cat Furness stepped in. We defended well for the first 3 quarters with our Emma Whitaker in GD awarded player of the match by us, but the oppositions defence was also excellent and we struggled to get any goals in. The last quarter we made a swap in order to try and increase our goal score, which worked, however it also meant our defence weakened and the opposition more than doubled their goal score in this quarter. Kim Tilbrook was awarded player of the match by them.
The Suburbans beat Glensides Old Boys 3-1.
Downs A beat Jersey 2-0. The match report is here.

And finally our friends from Leicester, FC Kolektivo Victoria, won their first ever competitive game, they reported thus on Facebook:
FC KOLEKTIVO VICTORIA 8-2 THE ABBEY Beyond the wildest expectations of even the most optimistic soul, the mighty FCKV won their first ever league game, with an epic display of total football. With only six players, and a new, spongy 3G pitch, the team apprehensively took to the field. James was elected captain mainly because he has the nicest hair and set the modest target of scoring at least one goal, and Lee in goal was hoping not to damage his back by picking the ball out of the net so often. Captain James (as he will be known forever) picked up the ball (not literally, although he likes to handle it during the Sunday kickabout at least three times), beat two players, before playing Simon in. Simon, angered by playing against a team in sky blue, rifled the ball into the bottom corner. FCKV had scored! The game was energetic, and despite some excellent saves from Lee, The Abbey equalised. The bald eagle in goal was on the receiving end of some barracking from The Abbey’s fan club, who were outsinging the FCKV contingent (one), until he launched the ball forward, misty eyed nostalgia of Wimbledon ’88 fresh in his mind. Nilz chased the ball down, and with a majestic touch rolled the ball into the corner to make it 3-1. After that, FCKV took all the best bits from the Sunday kickabout, and achieved great success. Nilz completed his hat-trick, including a wonderful goal from 20 yards. Simon scored his second, Captain James scored an excellent curling shot, before going on another mazy run. Hair falling into his eyes, he had the chance to score his second of the evening, or lay it to Nilz to score his fourth. As he went for ther pass, imagine the sheer horror as it was not the clinical finisher running onto the ball but defensive rock, colossus, superman Neil Skinner. As the birds in the sky braced themselves, Skinner delicately side footed the ball into the net. Reevesie, whose excellent tackles and bursting runs from defence had created many an attack, scored a deserved goal at the end to ensure that all five outfield players scored. With the score at 8-1 FCKV unfortunately conceded a deflected effort, which was in no way an own goal by Skinner. It was a deflection. Definitely. After eighteen months of the friendly football kickabout, two tournaments in the height of summer, and the friendly games against the FIFA teams, this victory was beyond our expectations. Every player played to their strengths, and it was a wonderful reward for the fun that has been generated on Sundays. We look forward to next week’s contest. Special thanks to Habib, who came to support the team, and who we hope to see playing very soon. FORZA FCKV! Wonderful performances all round. Team: Lee, Skinner, Reevesie, James, Nilz, Simon Goals: Nilz (3), Simon (2), James, Skinner, Reevesie Own Goals: Definitely not Skinner
