I don’t remember too many issues with lines there although it’s bloody freezing coming up and over that banking in the winter. I did ST a lot at the start of their existence and never reffed a victory, lots of valiant efforts and they are much better now but never a win! IA got a few cards too for his mouth, lovely lad off the pitch too!Last year was at the New York Stadium. Was going to be the same again this year and I was going be an AR but obviously its cancelled. It's a shame because it makes alot of money for a local hospice.
The organisers team play at Hinde House and I do most of their home games (although i missed a number this year as I was on CFA appointed games as I was on the promotion scheme). Hes probably a mutual contact.
Did they ever paint the lines when you were doing games at Hinde House????
Never had ARs ever from memory, I was invited on a night out one season and his dad collapsed with a suspected heart attack in the pub. Scary times watching the paramedics come and take him away.
Fitness reffing them was never an issue, you would have some laughs with the skill set on show. It was generally a battering back then!
