Team selectors are Kelvin Au and Derian. Line ups to follow.
As posted by Derian on the WhatsApp group chat at 5.57 pm:
White Keith Sean Shamir Wilson Daniel Derian Tan wee
Red Kelvin Ray Joel Jacko Jeremiah Nic G Alex
Shamir messaged the WhatsApp group chat at 8.46 pm to say he had to pull out due to a minor accident, and there was no way he could make it. I suggested the remaining players try to find a replacement at the venue, for example, from one of the earlier games. Otherwise, the usual modification to the rules is that the team with the extra player (in this case, Reds) are restricted to scoring from within an imaginary line running through the opposing penalty spot.
After the game, please post reports and comments on the game below.
This is the second worst game I've been in, in my entire GIFFAS career. The worst being a 10-0 defeat once.
I think the selection was fine, except Aaron was more than a worthy replacement for Shamir (no offence).
The only RED that played up to par was Jacko. Everyone else was (piss) poor, including myself. No excuses. It felt like we only had 5 running players at times.
One separate point: If you're tired, volunteer in goal. You can play in goal more than once if necessary, especially if you do not have the fitness to carry through the game. Let the others who can continue running, run - even if they have not been a keeper.
Final score was 7-2 I think to the Whites.
What made it worse was that I don't think Whites were even trying!
