When there are 10 players confirmed, anyone else can only be in reserve. The game will go ahead if there are at least 8 confirmed.
If you are keen to play, but take up is slow and there is a risk that the game may be cancelled, feel free to invite friends and acquaintances, or to SMS other players on the Participant List who have previously played at The Cage on weeknights.
If you put down the name for another, please ensure the player has confirmed to you that he is able to play.
Line ups will usually be put up by the day of the game. Any regular can suggest the line ups.
Bring both a black top and a white top to the game to allow for changes to be made to the line ups at the game itself.
If having put your name down, you subsequently cannot make it, please withdraw your name below. If you do not have access to the message board, or you have to withdraw after the line ups have been put up, SMS the coordinator or the person doing the line ups.
'Im full of a cold and have to drop out .... If people have played already this week what happens with the reserves??' I think those who played already maybe can give those who haen played a chance.. So everyone gets their football fix ;D
If we start looking at who played last, then what about who's playing next, or how many times each person played that week? There are also some of us who play games outside of GIFFA. Should those be taken into account? Also, why just the reserves? The same should apply to the first 10 as well. It gets too complicated.
First come, first in it has to be. There are lots of games each week, so if you put your name down early enough, you should get at least one game a week.
Anyway, Kevin K2 has withdrawn, and Dhiraj has voluntarily given up his place, so for today, the 10 are:
1) Neil S 2) Nick H 3) Justin R 4) Alex 5) Niel L 6) Mike A 7) Dilesh 8) David Gates (Dilesh's friend) 9) Dave H 10) Reza
