Preseason friendly football match on one of the hottest days of the year, like one of the hottest days for a few years. Played on what looked like grass, only browner. I don’t know about the players but it certainly tested my deodorant as well as my cardiac fitness. Lugging 30 kilos of kit from the car to a football pitch on the other side of a football pitch & a club house.
I actually felt sorry for the Ref, I know unusual for me, but being a ginger I imagine that he probably found it a little tough going.
