January Jaunts: The Collection

Matthew Need

Jimmy’s Haiku

Two goals, the second,

Top D, bottom corner. First;

Cool, calm, collected.


The St Ives vs South Shakespearian Sonnet

We travelled for a rainy afternoon.

A squad of fourteen, still full from mince pies.

They started well and alas scored too soon.

Miserable we were under the grey skies.


But Jimmy came to rescue, he did score

He netted not once but twice – 2:1 up.

The defense decided to shut the door.

By half-time, we were thinking; to the pub.


But with a half to play we came out strong.

And got one more goal courtesy of Tom.

3:1 it finished, no need to prolong

The suffering of St Ives; We da bomb!


A point to prove we beat the league above.

Winning hockey, we do the things we love!

Who passed to his team mate called Matt

There is only one way to play.

The squarial made him look like a ****
