The Delayed Twitter Reaction To Craggy Island's 2-1 Win Over Rugged Island

After five successive defeats, Craggy Island have won their first all-priests five-a-side over-75's indoor challenge football match since 1992.

After being thoroughly dominated in the first half when the elegant import Romeo Sensini ran the show, Craggy Island rallied spectacularly in the second half. Father Jack Hackett, who was carrying a sleep injury which left him confined to a wheelchair, came short for a throw-in and embarked on a mazy dribble

Twitter was alive with debate. But first, they paid respect to those who couldn't make it.
