Purple arses or not, after Sunday’s closely fought battle it is time to think about next month’s game. Based on the feedback, it seems (almost) everyone is happy with the location and the quality of the pitch (it ain’t no Wembley!) at Market Road, N7.
As mentioned to some of you, the month of May is a bit tricky, with 2 ATP’s, Primavera and other festivals coming up, and so the only weekend that can expect a reasonable turn-out* is the second May Bank Holiday, i.e. 23-24-25 May.
We have 3 options:
A) Play on Saturday 23rd May. However, this will clash with a Mike Diver-curated Rota afternoon, and given Mike’s impeccable taste in music, Rota is likely to have a cracking line-up you wouldn’t want to miss.
B) Play on Sunday 24th May. If we do this, it must be an early kick-off, as it is the final day of the Premier League season, with all matches kicking off at 4 PM and some (i.e. me) attending their local team’s last home match
C) Play on Monday 25th May. I can’t think of any reason why this would be a problem, other than people being away for the whole bank holiday weekend
Let me know what you think and whether you can make any of these days. My personal preference is obviously option C, but I’m happy to be led by the opinion of the majority.
Given the way the booking system at Market Road works, we need to come to a consensus by the end of this week to ensure our pitch.
