... we'll go ahead 6-a-side. Late now, so I will suggest line ups and captains. Anyway, several players who haven't played Thursday nights before, or who haven't played for a while, or who haven't played together before, much or at all.
The player on each team with the most number of games in the current 6 month period, other than anyone excluded, can be captains. That would be Guolong for Team 1 with 15 games, and Vish for Team 2 with 20 games. Captains can agree on colours.
