Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Dog Days of Summer Footie





I'm thinking the same as this dog as I will be inside, escaping the South Texas heat. I will be watching Capital One Cup Action as well as the UEFA Super Cup. The Fake Dons vs The Real Dons play in the Capital One cup Bein televised on BEIN while Real vs Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup is being televised on FS1. Both matches kick off at 2:45 EDT and make sure to stay cool and hydrated.

Six changes by Hockaday today, a combination of Academy kids and Italian purchases. Yikes!

2:59 PM

Skippy has a free kick deflected over. The corner from Modric is headed away then Bale has a shot deflected for a corner.

3:00 PM

The best chance of the match for the Real Dons. The Keeper fumbled a near post effort then the rebound was shot tamely to the keeper.

GOAL! The Fake Dons take the lead.

3:05 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

3:10 PM
