The traditional Boxing Day match between under 35s and over 35s went ahead at the Garrison Field stadium, St.Mary's, Isles of Scilly today with the usual Sunday clash between the Garrison Gunners and Woolpack Wanderers being set aside. It ended in a 4-4 draw.
Veteran Steve Watt kicked off and was named man of the match. Having taken retirement, the Radio Scilly dj now only works part-time on maritime matters for Isles of Scilly Council. Watt can remember when islands other than St.Mary's had teams. St. Martins were a particular challenge as the pitch fell away on either side of the halfway line and they had a notorious chopper in defence.
PC Mark Blythe was injured (cartilege).
The Radio Scilly sports desk aka Merryn Smith and myself is taking a break over the festive period but will be back in 2011.
