Malcolmses at Christmas



Last year, the game on December 22nd was called off. However, the Oddies came through and Malcolmses opened up anyway. It proved to be one of the best with a showcase from Nelson Mandela’s favourite band, International One. The Mainstanders and volunteers got to enjoy the Christmas entertainment for once right up until the beer ran out at 5.30. This year, we hope the game goes ahead. If it doesn’t we’ll still open up..

We’ve got a great line up so it’ll pay to get there early. We’re open from 12pm and have the usual eclectic mix of music, poetry and taterhash. First up we have Moston Active Drama and the FC Juniors doing a lickle play set in Malcolmses. We have our very own poet John Darwin on after them and then a new local band called Desmond Rebellion from Wythenshawe. We think you’ll like ’em. You can have a listen to them here - www.myspace.com/desmondrebellions

Carrot Corner this week comes to you from The Real Roxanne and his veggie hotdogs. There’s taterhash, CupYours Cakes and a very special festive addition - Mrs Wondermints’ Famous Whiskey Cakes. We’ll have the full range of beer, lager and cider on sale along with Tea Earn for those who need warming up...

The guest beer this week is a Christmas Ale, so rather than being strictly based on our opponents, we have just gone for a good beer. However, it’s from the Anchor Brewery and we are playing Marine, so there is a tenuous link. Each year since 1975, the Anchor Brewery has produced a unique Christmas Ale, which is available from early November to mid-January. The Ale’s recipe is different every year and many enthusiasts save a few bottles from year to year. We hope you enjoy one of the 2008 vintage. It is priced at £2.50 for 355ml at 5.5%abv. We’ll be raffling off the Season in Sevens bockles too...

FC United of Manchester members only, one guest allowed. The last one was a lock out so try to get there early to make sure you can get in. Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fear.

Pashernately Yours

Fridjmo, Midjmo and Mo
