Vintage Celtic Over 65s — 5 Comments

  1. Barry’s injury highlights an issue with tournament football which has always been a worry, I know that I struggle after a long break between matches with muscles getting cold and joints stiffening up.

    Perhaps we need to consider a strategy to help players who feel they have the same problems, might just be walking round the pitch between games, and incorporating some stretches. One thing is for sure, the older we get the worse it will become.

    Well done to all the lads who played, another very creditable performance, and well done Bill for the organisational efforts.

    • As one who has always appreciated my goal scoring skills, I am surprised you didn’t mention the two goals Brian! As for Barry’s problem, at yesterday’s re-hydration session I suggested that he jogged around the pitch perimeter with a ball at his feet during long breaks. He seemed to think this was a good idea.

  2. Another well organised, and reffed, comp at Heywood, thanks to Paul, Bill and refs.

    Pity we couldn’t maintain our earlier form for the semi but there is no doubt that stiffness quickly occurs in the time between games, although of course, it’s the same for both teams. Our opponents seemed to ‘on’ their game from KO and we were, by comparison, slow off the blocks.

    It was great to see our manager, now player/manager again, show his composure with well taken goals in 2 of the matches he came on as sub; I wonder if his will be the first name on the team sheet for the next over 65 comp!
