simples

Blackpool Men’s 1s 1-2 Carlisle Men’s 1s

by Peter Latimer

I feel it is my duty as a regular match reporter to inform the world that the word “simples” has now entered the language of the hockey pitch, and so fully deserves a place in the Oxford English Dictionary, as per the Facebook petition http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=55085907066&topic=12586

This life-changing incident occured when Blackpool’s central defender was raging at his team mates for not properly marking a Carlisle player in space at the top of the D. “… you’ve got to ****ing mark every ****ing player in the D … simples”

When several players, from both sides, looked bemused and started laughing, the said Blackpool defender did apologise for using such language (simples rather than the ****ing) and when interviewed after the game he insisted he was trying to say “simple things” or somesuch, but the damage was done.

Some might say this was the turning point of the match, which looked to be ending in a hard fought 1-1 draw, following an opening goal from Carlisle early in the 2nd half from a midfield run being passed into open space and Blackpool’s equaliser from defender Dec O’Hara from a lovely penalty corner routine.

Perhaps the aura of Blackpool’s back line had been broken, perhaps umpire Bob was disturbed by the use of “simples”, but this same defender then conceded a late penalty corner when his opposing striker dribbled the ball onto his foot on the very edge of the D.

It was disputed (politely), but to no avail, and after numerous misses from earlier short corners, this time Carlisle made no mistake and took the lead. There was just not enough time for Blackpool to bounce back and so yet again they ended up losing by a single goal and must continue to battle away against relegation.

Opposition’s Man of the Match – Pete Latimer (for his use of “simples” on the hockey field!)
