    7-6 and 4W to 3W

    So after a very enjoyable season I’ve applied to do both the 7-6 promotion pathway and the 4W to 3W promotion pathway next season. Has anybody done both in the same season, and if so, do you have any advice? It’d be great to have advice from anyone that has done any of the above!

    Boot and jewellery check

    Evening Guys I just wondered how people conducted the boot check and jewellery check before the game, especially where there are club assistants. Are you doing this before the teams come out for the game or whilst they are warming up?
