I came out of retirement this evening to play for my friends 5-a-side team in the Preston Area Women's 5-a-side Cup sponsored by Manzil Tandoori Takeaway.
We didn't win the competition, we were somewhat hindered by the goalkeeper with a lazy eye and a striker straight out of the Klasnic book of not running. For anything.
However, I scored a goal in two of the games, one a magnificent dribble from my own half beating 6 of their players and firing into the bottom corner. If Gerald Cid had been there he would have stood in awe.
But there really is no better feeling than scoring a goal is there? Even in a freezing sports centre in front of 12 people and Manzil himself. You had the skill to put that ball in the net, no one can take that away from you.
Do you play football or did you play? Do you get the same feeling as me when you score? Or if you've given up playing do you miss the feeling of scoring?
