Cardiff City Journalists FC v DiS // 11-a-side Football // Saturday 21 October // 12 PM

Islington Tennis Centre
Market Road
N7 9PL

Now that Wales are out of the World Cup, their scribes have plenty of time on their hands, so why not challenge them to a game of proper footie?

As always with international friendlies, we’ll have a proper FA referee, so bring your shinpads and practice those throw-ins.

The usual blurb:

  • we play on a full-sized astro-turf pitch
  • changing rooms and toilet facilities situation t.b.c.
  • 5 min walk from Caledonian Road tube station (Piccadilly line)
  • arrive at 11:30 AM for warm-up, tactics discussion, pre-match fags, team pictures, etc.
  • kick-off at 12 PM sharp
  • full 2 x 45 minutes and injury time + 15 min break
  • normal FA rules, but with rolling subs
  • shirt colour RED
  • final team will be announced on the Thursday before the game
  • 7 pounds per player will be collected on the day
  • post-match analysis in the nearby Hemingford Arms pub

You know the drill by now: sign up below if you want to be considered for selection. Applications from specialists (i.e. goalkeepers) will be viewed favourably.
