I got my first senior game yesterday.

Bit unusual, I got a round of applause from the spectators in the stand as I went off. 😃
I hope that was because you had a good game, and not because you were going off injured and they were pleased to see the back of you? 😂

I've gone off injured and ended up in the stand sat next to those that were moaning at me earlier. Amazing how their attitude changes, they were even offering to buy me teas and coffee.

Bonkers!

Why would anyone spend good money on something like that and then lob it on the pitch at a relatively low level game - is it even legal to buy/own these? :eek:
Local derby with some serious bad blood between fans (not players). Away teams 'ultras' were responsible.

Was also one of the biggest games in both sides history, the home side had never made the Vase 5th round and the away side only once in their history.

Yes, thankfully it was positive applause. They were saying thank you, good game etc. Game was uncontroversial and played in fairly good spirit, was a nice day all round. :D
