It turned out to be an impromptu Mom’s day (only Roy & Tom were ‘non-management’ dads) near beautiful, downtown Pitshanger (a real treat for your correspondent who can’t say he’d been to this part of Ealing before).  A bit chilly.  Ladies (Rosalind, Kathy & Roxanne) resorted to blankets and puffer jackets.  Kathy, in particular, looking fetching in Yves’s sister’s puffer vest.  Ah, on to football. . .

A beautiful sunny day on the Ealing ridge, a village fete atmosphere, real mugs of tea, Kosher bacon sandwiches for Mr Rosen and a postage stamp sized warm up space for a full PPA team. Conspicuous by their absence, Rory, committed elsewhere, Zach, injury and Louis, resting. A welcome back to Jonah from extended leave and to Ness joining the back four.

International duty decimated the PPA squad for the return fixture against Parkfield, with the UCS and Latimer boys all away on tour. Having claimed 3 easy points at home the squad were upbeat despite diminished numbers. A first start for Louis and only the third for Khalidu, who both performed impeccably and will make future selection even more difficult! Read more

Netherlands Easter Tournament (Arnhem) 2013 Tour Report

An historic moment, as PPA Under 15s assembled, at the ungodly hour of 05.00, at Paddington Rec. to embark on the first ever PPA European Tour.  Fortunately, Landsley Ware had been up all night preparing a mountain of bacon sandwiches, hungrily devoured by the Tour Team – except for David and Johnny, who had thoughtfully equipped themselves with Salmon Bagels for the journey!  Read more
