Gerard has 4 guests, and 7 of the players are introduced through him. Of the 7 of them Charpin has been the most regular, and also knows the other 6, so it makes sense for him to be the other team selector, with the 8 of them split between the 2 teams.
Line ups to follow.

After all the efforts to try to make the game happen, everyone got worried that it might be cancelled due to bad weather. Thankfully the skies cleared up and it was game on.
Very evenly matched game. With a majority of my friends playing and with a couple of them playing for the first time in Giffa games, I was concerned that their fitness levels would not be on par with the usual standards of our GIFFA games. I was wrong.
Whites had Tan Wee leading attack and he combined very well with his team with neat passing and a hat trick of well taken goals. Reds had Peisheng, Daoyang and Lingchong commanding mid field and scored some nice goals. Derek too scored a nice counter attacking move by reds with a well taken low shot at goal. Both teams could have scored more goals if not for some good defending by Charpin and Alvin from whites and Augustine and Lida from reds.
Whites were leading 9-7 when we called for last goal. Almost immediately, Peisheng scored an accurately placed low shot to end the game 9-8 to whites.
Thanks for the game guys. Hope it was enjoyable for everyone and also hope this will get my friends to register and become more regular in our Giffa games.
