Elvin with 3 votes is 1 team selector. Andrew and Jake are tied on 2 votes each, but both are sufficiently familiar with the players to be the other team selector. Andrew gets in ahead having played more games in the current 6 month period (19 to Jake's 15).

Wow did we really play for 90 mins? The clock read 6.30pm after we were done!
Reds indeed proved too strong as they fired 2 quick goals in in the first 10 mins. This went on until it was 5-2 to Reds with White's Gareth pulling 1 back by firing a tentative shot which went in off the crossbar for Whites first goal. We then agreed to make a tactical change subbing Gareth for Hersh and that made all the difference (Apologies guys, Gareth told me later that he was having a fever hence his lethargic display and he duly got a scolding for not telling me earlier! )
With Hersh making strong runs down the left wing, Whites started to whittle at Reds leads until we drew at 5-5. Strikes from the superb rising-to-occasion CH, Hersh and was it Rainer? ensured that we clawed our way back into the game. Then much to Whites own surprise, we went up 3 goals to 8-5 as Reds started to lose it with some soft goals! Last goal was agreed and Elvin duly complied with a splendid goal.
Good to see the young uns score goals apiece but the MOTM for me was CH who really rose to the occasion giving his all and attacking down the flank, defending and disrupting midfield!! Impressive!!
