On the WhatsApp group chat, players wanted a faster decision. Rockstar preferred to cancel, but Dylan, Mark, Rainer, Cedric, Joel and Jye were prepared to go on on a small pitch. While waiting for the remaining 4 to respond (we needed at least 4 more for a 5-a-side on a small pitch), Mark managed to get 2 more players, Sam and Greg.
Although Mark is NAATS, as 3 of the 11 players are his guests, I've asked him to suggest line ups. I've also asked for a volunteer from the remaining players to be the other team selector captain.
Mark suggested the following line ups on the WhatsApp group chat at 2.14 pm:
White - Rainer, Sam, Dylan, Arijit, Greg, Jye, Kelvin
Red - Mark, Rockstar, CH LIM, Cedric, Euan, Chen Hong, Joel
For info, all 3 of my guests play, or played, regularly to a decent standard. I've split them across teams accordingly.
I asked for a volunteer for a team captain for Whites.
So far, no comments on the line ups, and no volunteer for a team captain for Whites. If we go with the player with the most number of games in the current 6 month period, other than those who expressly opted out as team captain, that would be Arijit with 22 games.
Everyone, please be early.
After the game, please post reports and comments on the game below.
