Weeliam's friends were late, and no show by Jon, so Srini started with Reds. When Weeliam's friends arrived, it Faizal joined Whites while Rashid switched to Reds.
I tried calling Jon several times between 9 and 9.30 am, but there was no reply. At about 9.35 pm, I got another player, Gilman, to join Reds.
The lights went out from about 9.10 to about 9.25 pm. I thought Sports Planet would give us an extra 15 minutes at least, but they called a short while ago to say that they couldn't, as there was another group playing after us, so they offered us an extra half an hour for one of next week's games.
It won't be the same players next week, so I said I didn't want that. I would rather get a small credit from them, and share it amongst those who paid for today's game.
I'll follow up with Sports Planet on "compensation".
The final line ups were:
Reds: Andre, Nick H, Mike P, Weeliam, Faizal, Srini, Gilman Whites: Justin, Andy Tan, Isaac, Bryan F, Noor, Alex F, Rashid
Might be worth reminding everyone of one of the points under 'Playing Rules & Principles' tho this is not in particular reference to Thursday.
" The players in each team take turns in goal. It’s the only break you get! Unless a player volunteers to spend more time in goal, everyone should spend a similar amount of time in goal. The goalkeeper can come out of the "D" but can only handle the ball within the "D". Other players can enter the D."
Everyone makes the trip down looking forward to a good game of workout and fun. Everyone.
So let's all take turns being in the goal so EVERYONE can have a taste of the fun yeah?
