Knapton Wright Stun Distract With Emphatic 6-A-Side Victory

Knapton Wright prove Brigg is best in first interagency football match

Last night saw Yarbrough Leisure Centre play host to the inaugural interagency football match as Knapton Wright (& Friends) dispatched Distract in thrilling fashion.

There’s always something romantic about a game of football under floodlights, and this encounter did not disappoint. What many were calling the biggest game in Lincolnshire history ended up a 13-goal thriller, much to the delight of neutral spectators.

The Knapton Wright Old Boys (Alex, Jonathan and Ollie) were supported by Ben and Sam from I Want Fish & Chips, as well as Jake from Just Vehicle Solutions and Michael Bohan from Franchise Resales. And they set off out of the traps at a rapid pace (while Alex was stuck on the A46 listening to Michael Buble’s Desert Island Discs episode), racing into the lead and missing a number of chances to boot. On a pitch big enough for 7-a-side, the 6-a-side format was proving problematic, particularly for Distract who, despite their impressively flashy new kit (Holland ca. ’88), were a substitute light.

The match continued in the same vein and as the game wore on, Knapton Wright showed that sometimes Brigg is better, with goals flooding in from all angles. There were some handbags as tempers flared; first for a tackle that left two players on the floor and then a meaty slide tackle from a Knapton Wright defender (who shall remain nameless (Ben)) that wasn’t taken too pleasantly.

This, along with a late attempt at a comeback from Distract, did nothing to disrupt Knapton Wright though as the goals kept flying in. The history books will read that Knapton Wright came away with an 11-2 victory, therefore finally proving that Alan Hansen can be correct sometimes: “You can’t win anything with kids.”

With the victory wrapped up and Knapton Wright demonstrating that they can, in fact, do it on a cold Tuesday night in Lincoln, the Old Boys sloped off for a victory pint at The Stag’s Head while Distract FC searched for answers at the bottom of a KFC family bucket.

Knapton Wright manager, Alex Wright, had this to say after the match: “The fans were absolutely brilliant tonight; we had to put in a performance for them. The lads battled well and we kept our shape at the back. A bit disappointing not to come away with a clean sheet, but we know that the hard work does not stop here – we’ll be back to the training ground tomorrow morning to ensure we back the performance up with another 3 points in the next game.”
