Revised line ups:
Reds: Rai (c), Stan D Man, Carl, Alex F, Desmond, Philip, Eric Y
White: Sufian, Jeff S, Andrew B, Glenn T, Chen Hong (c), Niel L, Alvin
Having played the most number of games over the past 6 months, Chen Hong can take over from Jamie as team captain for Whites.
Some discussion on the WhatsApp group chat on whether the pitch will be too slippery. Rai is also concerned that the extra spotlights won't be working if the pitch is waterlogged. I called Sports Planet and they said the lights are working.
Final decision is to go on with the game.
When Rai arrived about 8.40 pm, the extra spotlights weren't working, but by the time I arrived at about 8.50 pm, they had managed to get them on again.
It was only a light drizzle by the time the game started.
Jeff was 15 minutes late. As he drove, he forgot his football shoes, and had to go home to get them.
Andrew B and his friend were more than 20 minutes late.
Earlier on the WhatsApp group chat:
* Andrew B at 8.07 pm: "Faster faster I stay yishun still gonna pick up my friend at hougang"
* Me at 8.08 pm: "On ok."
* Jeff S at 8.10 pm "We can't disappoint ppl coming from yishun"
* Andrew B at 8.10 pm "Roger. Leaving now"
Andrew is often late, but this time, I'll put it down to the latish decision to go ahead with the game.
Desmond started with Whites, so 5 v 6 to being with. When Jeff arrived, it was 6-a-side. Desmond switched back to Reds when Andrew and Alvin arrived.
