Greg Posted January 12, 2009 Share Posted January 12, 2009 Details Meet 3.45pm in the car park at Coach Lane (pinned "B" on the map, postcode is NE7 7XA), to do introductions and pay £5 each to The Gambling Gorilla (Neil): http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/4160/mapsxx.jpg We'll try and have about 15 minutes for a warm-up and aim to get kicked off by 4.15pm. Usual 45 minutes each way with the half-time length being determined by how exhausted everyone is. There are plans afoot for a few beers after the game, too, and I'm sure this will be sorted out when we're all there together. If you're playing for the first time then please bring both a blue and a red top in case some people need to switch in order to balance the teams, but if you can only manage one or the other then don't worry as hopefully some of the other lads can bring a spare shirt of either colour with them for you to borrow if necessary. Also, anyone who has some good footballs that we could use for the match then get them along too! I think we were pretty well set last time, but the more the better really. It's very quiet around there so shouldn't be any worries about losing them/having them pinched. Drinks - really basic and I know you're not kids, but people will still forget. Try and bring at least 500ml of fluids (preferrably still Lucozade/Powerade, or just water/juice failing that) with you if you're worried about your fitness to stay hydrated. Also, Jaffa Cakes are more than welcome for those needing a quick sugar hit at any stage (). Skittles as well... Shin-pads probably aren't a must-have but sometimes it's better to be safe than sorry. The last game was squeaky clean, but you never know... Finally, bladed boots, moulded boots and trainers are all fine for playing on the 3G surface but I'd recommend that you only slide-tackle if you love carpet burns - or if you're a Blue Team defender making a last-ditch stop on Red Team scum. Obviously.
