The University Of Sheffield
Goodwin Sports Centre
Presented to you as a joint aggressively_passive & Hoogy production, we are extremely pleased to invite you to the beautiful town of Sheffield for an international friendly against a selection of very fine local chaps.
The match will take place on Saturday afternoon at Sheffield University's sport centre, on 3G astro turf and including use of the changing rooms..
We will be departing from London on Saturday morning around 10 AM. Upon arrival in Sheffield we will go straight to the pitch for a warm-up and team talk.
If you live in Sheffield and/or nearby, and you fancy participating, feel free to sign up, and we'll find a space for you on either team.
As always with international friendlies, we're planning to have a proper FA referee so bring your shinpads and practice those throw-ins.
Post-match you have the choice of traveling straight back to London, or alternativley, hit the town for an old-fashioned knees-up. In which case we'll stay overnight in a hostel/hotel and travel back on Sunday, arriving back in London in the afternoon.
The approximate budget per person will be as follows:
train - £50 to £60
accomodation - £25 to £30
pitch/referee - £5
food and drink - £whateveryoucanspend
Please let me know as soon as possible if you fancy this trip, as the longer we wait the more expensive train tickets will get, and the choice of accomodation will be more limited.
As ever, all you need do for now is reply below with an IN or OUT pun.
