A battle-hardened Wrexham line-up beat St Mirren’s Under-19s: a valuable run out or child cruelty? The answer’s probably seventy per cent Option A, 30 per cent Option B.
It brings to mind the episode of “The SImpsons” where Frank Grimes, exasperated by the blind eye everyone affords Homer, determines to humiliate him. He enters him in a competition to design a nuclear power plant without telling him it’s a contest for kids. When Homer takes the stage to present his entry Grimes leaps up to embarrass him, but is slapped down:
Grimes: But this was a contest for children!
Lenny: Yeah, and Homer beat their brains out.
Walloping St Mirren’s kids is bit like this. But we got a good workout, could win a pre-season trophy, and Andy Bishop got a couple of goals, so who cares?
