Not-so-mellow yellow

Anaclet Odhiambo, star striker of my local club here in Oxfordshire, Abingdon Utd, is claiming that the hue of his side's new shirt is responsible for the fact that he was stung by a wasp in their first game of the season. Ignoring for a moment the opinions of so-called "experts" from Oxford University's Museum of Natural History and the fact that Abingdon Utd have worn yellow for years, it got me wondering whether the choice of colour for our own new away strip was actually a carefully calculated ploy to ensure Big Lad is stung into action every now and again when we're on the road. If so, then South East London must have been a completely wasp-free zone on Saturday...
