Away fixtures, a theme in itself.

I guess a lot of us have experienced those days before mobile phones when we would set off to an away fixture in a convoy of 6 cars and only 3 would arrive..... Satnav? Just a dream.

We once played a team in West London and hired a coach for the day. On the way home the driver was getting very annoyed at the antics of some of the drinkers. When they insisted on a P stop on the M4 hard shoulder, shielded by the coach, the driver waited until they were in full flow then drove off much to the entertainment of the passing motorists.

We had a game where the match was stopped whilst a parachutist landed in the middle of the pitch. He refused to tell us where he had come from whilst he re packed the chute and just wandered off.

Another where freak weather meant bizarre low fog covered the pitch to hip height. The game had to be stopped but as the players walked off one of the players 3 year old children ran on to the pitch but got lost in the fog and the players went back on to help find him.
