Mini Blues beat tiny Canaries
AS an omen it was hard to beat – 4-1 to the Super Blues.Ok, so the venue was Radio Suffolk's studios, the men were all plastic and the two players were not quite up to first division football, but the result is what counts.
AS an omen it was hard to beat – 4-1 to the Super Blues.
Ok, so the venue was Radio Suffolk's studios, the men were all plastic and the two players were not quite up to first division football, but the result is what counts.
The blue half of East Anglia was represented by rising young star Brenner Wooley (Radio Suffolk) while the yellow and green bit was in the shape of grizzled veteran Roy Waller (Radio Norfolk).
There was some doubt about the stadium name, but it seemed only fair to take the Portman from Portman Road and the road from Carrow Road.

So Portman Road it was then – a fair mixture from both sides.
The match was over two halves of two minutes and the half time whistle went with the game evenly poised at 2-1.

But Ipswich raced away in the second half, easily holding out against the Norwich hordes and tucking away two tidily taken goals of their own.
Tension was rising in the build-up to the unusually early 7.30am kick-off, although there was little crowd trouble to report.
And with an early snow fall – some bits of white paper scattered on the pitch by commentator Bryan Knights – it seemed set up for a classic.
The first moment of note was a spectacular own goal, struck by Wooley from his own half-way line.
But he quickly regained composure after the dramatic setback and strode out an easy winner.
We can only hope that Sunday's big match is played out in an equally good spirit. And that the result is the same.
