Now is the winter of my discontent

Today's edition of the Leamington fanzine Windmill Wonderland had a special Shakespeare theme in honour of visitors Stratford Town, although what the Batman outfit of their manager has to do with the bard is another matter. Various scenes from Shakespeare were re-written with a football theme. What the crowd of 575 saw was a hard, physical battle with low entertainment value. Indeed one of the few moments of humour in what was designated as the Warwickshire No Smoking Derby was provided when the person in a cigarette costume was wrestled to the ground on the North Bank. When the Stratford keeper had to change his boots, he was greeted with a chant of 'I'm so *****, I blame my boots.'

Cadzy made an inspired substitution, bringing on former Inverness Caledonian Thistle ace Leon Morgan who has been out injured. He converted from a corner on 86 minutes to make it a case of 'now is the winter of my discontent' for the many Thespians in the crowd. Indeed, on a bitterly cold day, they truly went home as Stratford Blues.
