Dry Bones!

A warm evening with a cheeky breeze funnelling down the pitch into the faces of around 150-200 stocky Stockportians jingle-jangling their loose change in the Osmond Stand.

Another Friday freebie for da kidz and the allure of big match tickets for those occasional adults meant a huge crowd thronging. Well, a bit more than usual. Throngs ain't what they used to be.

Town lined up in the a la carte menu 4:4:1:1 formation as follows:

Mildenhall,
McDermott, Whittle, Jones ( R ), Croft,
Andrew, Diet Koka Kalala, Bolland, Parkinson,
Jones (G)
Reddy.

The substitutes were Crane, Gritton, Ramsden, Barwick and Newey.

At last, the past is the future and England's dreaming: Macca and Croft back together in their rightful positions. The left-footed Andrew played on the right; the right footed Parkinson played on the left. Tactical masterstroking from Russ Slado Blofeld? Or plain barminess on a balmy night?

Stockport brought along an eclectic mix in their electric blue kit. Shall we boo their keeper, on loan from Britain's official worst city ever, officially? Ah, Dr Dje, one of Town's 633 squadron of foreign trialists. With his knee bones connected to his hip bone it's the dem bones of Ezekiel Tomlinson! Ooh, hel-lo, ding-dong. Will the raffish, rakish Adam Le Fondre take time out from his pursuit of lovely ladies to play? And if it's not a Jonjo it's a Jermaine - the unwritten law of lower league football. This time it's Easter: that's either his surname or when he gets transferred.

Dish of the Day: John Lukic's cheese and ham pizza. Kids size, presumably; his dad'll have the 12" with extra cheese. Eating five a day is good for you - as long as the ham is a sultana and the cheese is an apricot. John appears to like a simple toppings, which may explain his hair.

Shall we start?

The report continues in the First Half.
