Lets take time out from cricket and let me tell you a little story.

With the a new Pope being elected this week it reminds me of a trip that Richie, Scotty and Sugar took to the local church.
 They were in the church and sat in a church service.
Sugar turns round to Richie and Scotty and says ''I have just done a silent fart, i hope no-one smells it''
They both look at Sugar and reply '' turn your hearing aid up, it wasn't that silent''.

After the service all three boys walked down the front of the church and noticed a pool of water. They asked the priest what the water was for and the priest said ''go do something bad and come back tomorrow''
So they did and came back the next day and they asked the priest why they had to do that. The priest answered ''When you do something bad,... You come to the holy water and drink it to be forgiven and clean'
Richie said ''well I Ran over a cat'' and then drank the holy water. Scotty said ''I robbed a bank'' and then drank the holy water. Sugar stared at them and the priest asked ''what Bad deed did you do?'' and Sugar replied ''I peed in the holy water''
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO all the luck in the world to all City players for this weekend CITY

They both are, faster than a speeding bullet!!!!!!!






It is official City United’s own Ben and Matt Ballantine are the fastest opening batsmen between the wickets in the Tamworth Competition. The funny thing is, wearing batting pads do not seem to slow them down at all.
 On the other hand our President was having a conversation with his daughter the other day.
• He asked her "What do you like most about me? My tremendous athletic ability or my superior intellect?"
After rolling around the floor laughing for a good five minutes "What I like most about you, dad" responded his daughter, "is your enormous sense of humor."
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO The trouble with jogging is that by the time you realize you are not in shape for it, it is too far to walk back. CITY
