5s vs City of London – 24.03.18

It was a gloomy Saturday afternoon in Catford as the 5s arrived to equally gloomy changing facilities for a chance for the 5s to move further away from the relegation zone at City of London.  The players arrived and there was already a major shock on the cards as Aaron…

5s vs HSBC 6s – 17.02.18

5s 2-1 HSBC   Following some poor results of late we started this game in the bottom 2. Hsbc were third in the league, so we faced a tough game to try and pull out of trouble. And the pitch signified the way our season had been going really –…

5s vs Polytechnic 7s – 27.01.18

Mighty 5s 2-2 poly 7s(2-4 aet)   In truth, the cup was the only major thing w had to play for, so this game was incredibly important to us. The lady behind the bar might not have quite grasped that when our keeper asked if the bar was open so…

5s vs South Bank Cuaco 5s – 13.01.18

Merton 5s 3 – 2 South Bank 5th A group of discombobulated, confused, lost men in a field. No, this was not the result of a 5s night out – it was in fact us at the very start of the game. A double booking on the pitch we thought…

5s vs Old Parkonians – 02.12.17

Merton 5’s may have been a little late to the race to the top of the league, but they have took to the SAL Intermediate Novets Cup like a duck to… well you know the rest. After a confident and capable display against Norseman 6’s and a hearty 4-1 win…

5s vs Actonians 8s – 09.12.17

Actonians Association 8’s vs Merton FC 5’s Saturday 9th December 2017 14:00   It was a cold Saturday morning and having seen all home games being called off early we thought there may be a danger of our game being called off as well.  The sun obviously shines a bit…

5s vs Old Sedcopians – 25.11.17

Mighty 5s 2 – 2 Old Sedcopians [3 – 3 AET, 2 – 4 Pens] This game was, unusually, a game of four halves, each extremely different to the last. With the expectation being that we will only have 8 more must-win league games to salvage our season, a good…

5s vs Norseman 6s – 11.11.17

Mighty 5s 4 – 1 Old Norsemen 6s It is fair to say that this season hasn’t quite gone to plan so far. At this point last season we were winning games, not conceding many and top of the league. We have been quite far off the standards we set…

5s vs Merton 6s – 04.11.17

Merton 5s 3 – 3 Merton 6s This game was as bizarre, eventful and action-packed as a low-budget Arnold Schwarzenegger film so I apologise for playing fast and loose with some of the detail! The fixture man certainly enjoyed the first game because we’re not even half way through the…

5s vs Old Wilsonians 5s – 28.10.17

Old Wilsonians Fifth 3 – 3 Mighty 5s Bromley is fast becoming last season’s Chiswick – a home from home, a place where we spend more time than the Hood. Shame because it’s so bloody difficult to get to – self-driving flying cars could not come sooner. And yet again,…
