As it was a new venue, I went down to make payment. I would have played if we had uneven numbers. The pitch looked a bit smaller than the 5-a-side pitch at Khalsa.
I walked over to Khalsa and one of the 5-a-side football pitches was available, so if we had stuck with the hockey pitch, we would have been switched to the 5-a-side football pitch. The problem at Khalsa is that other people sometimes cancel very late, so we won't know if we will be switched to a 5-a-side football pitch if we risk it and stick with the hockey pitch (for a 5-a-side game). Anyway, our games at Khalsa are usually 7-a-side, so this issue won't arise often.
After the game, please post reports and comments on the game below.
