Epsom 5’s go down 4-0 in a comedy of errors

AndrewM Mens 5th XI

Well our second league match ended in a  4-0 defeat.  Not the best display but several worthy moments need to be recorded.   We started the game with only 9 men,  this should have earned our illustrious leader TFC.  We were soon reduced to 8  when Adam (Hibberd)  in his desperation to get on the score sheet deflected the opponents …
