Blues - 10th March 2018 – Intermediate Flags Semi Final – Bath away


Harry Potter and the SEMLA Flags

Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed similarities between our team and some of the characters in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter.

Gryffindor (where dwell the brave of heart):

Harry Potter a.k.a. Pete - as usual using his magic for the greater good, Pete was on excellent form, dodging from the right to score 7 goals (the most powerful wizarding number).

Ron Weasley a.k.a. Rishi – like Harry, but worse; he scored a meagre four Goels, and struggled to escape from his best friend’s shadow. However, it should be noted that he went a whole day without firing a ball straight into the keeper’s mesh from the crease.

Hermione Granger a.k.a. Gabe – hugely talented, but ultimately a narp. Need I say more? 7 goals from Number 7, or “little miss perfect” to quote Rita Skeeter. Made a mockery of the Bath defence from X.

Ginny Weasley a.k.a. Cob – small but should not be underestimated, especially when it comes to ground balls, as proved by his rare outing in midfield today.

Neville Longbottom a.k.a. Kersh – with Snape (a.k.a Monty) absent Neville had the confidence to shine. Great carries out from D, never being stripped of the ball.

Cormac McLaggen a.k.a. Ben – terrible passing, more often finding Bath players than his own. Could he have been confunded?

Peter Pettigrew a.k.a. Jeff – betrayed his old friends (Bristol) by revealing their plays to ingratiate himself with his new team.


Albus Dumbledore a.k.a. Berv – Order of Princeton, 1st Class. The best magician in the wizarding world, and headmaster of the defence.

Rubeus Hagrid a.k.a Dutch – rumoured to be half giant. Pete Baddoo still trapped in pocket of moleskin overcoat.

Severus Snape a.k.a. Monty – "he has, to use the common phrase, done a bunk"

Other characters:

Draco Malfoy a.k.a Theo – Slytherin is known for is snakes. By the sixth book Malfoy has distanced himself from Crabbe and Goyle, and it is fair to say that he hates the boys. Known for his terrible chat.

Dobby a.ka. Bithell – Master Malfoy refused Dobby permission to play in the Flags Semi-Final.

Rita Skeeter a.k.a. Ryan – everyone’s favourite match reporter, but distanced himself from possible DOD shouts by winning virtually every face off in the second half of the match.

A thestral a.k.a. Harbord – pulled team carriage to Bath.

I’m running out of inspiration by this point so our Bath guys can be Ravenclaws or something.

Any generic Hufflepuff a.k.a. James Rhodes – thinks badgers are a good team mascot.Lax was played. 20 - 6 win. The Dark Blues romp into the Intermediate Flags Final, where they will face Spencer 2s.Type your paragraph here.
