I was going to suggest the two players with the most number of games over the current 6 month period as team selectors (Gerard with 28 games and Derian with 19 games), but Derian opted out and suggested Sean instead on the WhatsApp group chat. No objections from Sean, so can we go with that, Gerard and Sean as team selectors?
Give me an hour to ask around one more time to see if I can get 2 more, otherwise, 6-a-side.
* Gerard was busy, so I asked David if he could be team selector in place of Gerard. * Sean asked if Derian, Daniel, Chern Yang, Kelvin, George and himself could be on the same team, claiming George hasn't played much football. On the other hand, George studies Christiano Ronaldo! * Dave was up to the challenge, and requested to be in white, but couldn't identify the players to pick his 7, so I went back to Gerard. * Yuchi offered to be the 7th player on Sean's team.
Line ups indirectly agreed between Sean and Gerard:
* Reds: Derian, Sean Luo, Daniel T2, Chern Yang, Kelvin Ho, George L, Yuchi * Whites: Dave H, Gerard, Rubhan, David N, John Simpson, Alvin Chew, Alex F
Reds: Derian, Sean Luo, Daniel T2, Chern Yang, Kelvin Ho, George L, Yuchi* Whites: Dave H, Gerard, Rubhan, David N, John Simpson, Alvin Chew, Alex F
Some last minute entries to form 7 v 7 but we still managed to get a game eventually.
The game started with whites taking a quick 3 goal lead with some very sloppy defending and goalkeeping from reds. Reds had no idea where the goal was for the first 20min of the game. It wasn't until kelvin ho put the goal in directly from a corner before reds started to find their feet.
Reds were huffing and puffing and finally managed to bring the game back to 3-3. They then went on to take the lead 4-3 and reds eualised again with a lapse of concentration from derian.
He managed to make up for it with 4 goals to the good and game eventually ended 7-5 to reds. Heavy rain now. Drive with care.
