Our next match this coming Monday night is an 8.00.p.m. Kick-Off against our Hazelwood pitch-sharing colleagues Broomfield (their First Team) from the Southern Amateur League on Saturdays.
We are still top of the Monday Night League Qualifying Group table and have already qualified for the 'Cup League', but it's pretty obvious that Broomfield are the team to beat, so we will therefore be fielding our strongest available line-up based on our squad from last season and our performances so far this Summer.
Unfortunately Alan Barnard, Leon McKenzie-McKay and Krishan Singh are all unavailable, while Riaz Daniels and John Scouller have still not re-surfaced from last season due to work commitments. However, we still have at least 13 players to choose from and at the moment, subject to availability, the squad will be as follows:
Adam Griffin (GK)
Manager Trevor Hughes will be back from his holiday on Saturday morning, and if he wants a squad of 9, then Rafiel Johnson will be called up as well.
We also have Ivan Bass, Lexton Harrison, Garry Cover and Adam Krstic available to come into the squad if anybody has to drop out.
Please note that we do NOT want players strolling along right on the kick-off for this match like they did for our last game. We MUST take this match seriously and turn up in good time, otherwise we will find ourselves on the receiving end of an embarrassing thrashing !
i can play from monday onwards i can try and get lewis also
me and frazer work in different departments so i never swap shifts with him he does permanent earlies, i dont have to play monday i will just sign the form
Ben is not playing due to work, so I have texted Raf to tell him he is definitely in a squad of 8.
I have had no reply from him (or Daley) yet though.
Everybody else in the squad has confirmed their availability.
Daley is playing.
I still haven't heard from Raf but he normally phones or texts me after 5.00.p.m.
If John is coming to watch and sign up, I advise him to bring his boots just in case.
I also need Riaz to turn up and sign the Multi-Reg Form. If he is fit to play, he can bring his boots as well. He has changed his phone number though, so I can't get hold of him.
Others who said they were going to come along to a 7-a-side match 'soon' to sign the Multi-Reg Form for next season are Gavin Mardell and Frankie Karemo. Tonight is their last chance. I am not going to chase them up again.
