Several new or less regular players, so I will suggest line ups after 4 pm tomorrow. I've added the team captain poll. I've included everyone who has played on Thursdays before and at least 15 games in the current 6 month period or 50 games over the past 3 years.
Stuart, with 1 vote, can be captain of Team 1. No one on Team 2 has any votes, so I suggest the player with the most number of games over the past 3 years. That would be Chris, with 57 games. Team captains can agree on colours. However, with several new, newer or less regular players, it is best to be prepared for changes during the game, so everyone, bring both colours (red top and white top).
Both teams took time to get to understand how each played I thought, with the Reds struggling more at the outset, and dropping behind 2-3 goals quickly. Chris the Reds captain wisely called for a change in the formation, dropping myself and Siva back into defense, and pushing Ivo and Azmi forward. This had the effect of both stemming the bleed as well as opening the goal gates. Reds not only managed to equalize but began pulling away to 7-3. But then Whites took a collective deep breath and began chipping away at Reds' lead, eventually tying it 7-7 in the end. Well played all.
