Ruddy hell, it’s match 3 of 2017 already. After last month’s Series of Unfortunate Events with very low numbers, let’s play some proper haircuts football this month please.

AGAIN please note - due to us losing money pretty much every time, we’ve had no choice but to increase the participation fee by £1, so it’ll be £6 from now on.

SIGN UP BELOW
The usual blurb:

  • we play on a full-sized astro-turf pitch
  • there are changing rooms and toilet facilities
  • 5 min walk from Archway tube station (Northern line)
  • 1 min walk from Upper Holloway train station (Barking - Gospel Oak line) This is back baby! Awoooo!
  • Buses 17, 43, 263 and 271 all stop at Upper Holloway train station
  • arrive at 3:30 PM for warm-up, tactics discussion, pre-match fags, team pictures, etc.

Now I’ve got an account here I might as well use it.

I’ve been out for the last month with a bad ankle injury, sustained while moving a yard to my right in order to field a 40-yard free-kick - the ankle went, the leg crumpled, the ball went in the goal, my school’s old boys’ team hasn’t contacted me since etc etc

IF and only if my ankle’s completely healed by idk…the 14th? I’ll say yes.

(Still don’t know who I am? Goalkeeper, loquacious.)

I’m officially IN, as are my pals (Irish) Peter, Calvin and Dave.

#18

My ankle’s still bad so a tentative OUT from me I’m afraid. How can one twisted ankle fuck you up for more than a month?


#19

Good work - shame about non-Irish Pete though, what a flake.
