Playing in a game with a uniform

So infrequently I have been playing with the Town Council team which is basically a Municpal league team for all of the cities, most everything has a soccer league here, police, fire, military, even the taxi union has its own league. So does the cities.

So I played on the field a lot during training and not much since arriving in Nhlangano.

But this was a real game, I told the coach I couldn't make 90 so pull me out. In the game, I was the man who passed to the man who passed to the man who scored the goal. ie 2nd assist.

Basically, I was in the middle of the field, I kicked the ball up and over the defense and the the striker got the ball took it down the field and passed it to the other striker who scored. Everyone congratulated me on being apart of the goal.

I have not played in a game in uniform on the field since 1991. And I was never on the field as player always as goalie. So a new experience. I LOVED IT.
