A grey start to the day, though no rain to start with.

The Gorse Fox started the day with a wander through the deals available on Amazon Prime Day. Lots of deals, but nothing of interest.

Being Tuesday, the Gorse Fox had football. There was a good turn out. In fact we had a full house of 32 players so we ended up with 8 a-side. The Gorse Fox was lucky, he was in team of very good ball players and we played some very nice football. Our "yellow" team won the first game 1-0, the second 2-0 and drew the last game 2-2. The middle game was somewhat foreshortened when a mighty yell floated across the from the next pitch. Big John had crashed to the ground and all the nearby players had heard the load snap as his ankle broke. First aiders were soon there and he was eventually rolled away in a wheel chair and taken to A&E.

The second hour was a different bunch of lads. This time the Gorse Fox was playing in red. Again, the team was made up of good ball players and we won the first game 4-0, the second 1-0, but lost the last game 2-1. The Gorse Fox was very happy with his game today. He was very focussed and his timing was spot on. No goals for him today, but certainly some very good football all round.

As he writes this, the rain has set in. A Thai-style red curry is simmering on the stove.
