Dis 11-a-side Football // Sunday 26th February 2017 // 4pm


Whittington Park Football Pitch
Holloway Road
N19 4RS

Here we go, Reds V Blues match 2 of 2017. I don’t think it’s possible for it to be wetter or colder than the January match, so things are looking up lads.

In what I can only assume is tradition, last month’s match started pretty civilised and well balanced and ended in a SILLY GOAL FEST. I reckon Feb’s gonna be a corker.

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.


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 might actually be up and running again by the end of Feb
  • 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.
  • kick-off at 4 PM sharp
  • full 2 x 45 minutes and injury time + 15 min break
  • one team will play in red shirts, the other in blue
  • everyone can participate, the skills on display are wide-ranging
  • final teams will be announced in the week leading up to the game
  • SIX pounds each will be collected on the day
  • post-match analysis in the Landseer pub on Landseer Road (5 mins walk away)

This is a possibility for sure but that’s why we love the sport isn’t it!

TENTATIVE IN. I’m at a conference and get back Sunday AM.

“What about noted centre-back and equally noted Dave, CB Dave?”, you asked, your eyes darting with nerves.

“Oh, he’s IN”, I replied, a faint smile tracing across my lips.
