    Coach to scared to drop their 'stars' back to res grade probably.

    --- Weekend tips ---
    Cardiff v Mayfield - Mediocre tigers vs good tigers ..... Mayfield to win here.

    Warners Bay v Barnsley - Bay to win and enjoy their Mr Schnitzel match payments.

    Suns v Jesmond - Suns to busy telling each other how good they are, Jeso to sneak a draw.

    Dudley v Swansea - Swans to fold under the pressure.

    Beresfield v Kotara - Bero to ease into this one after the big one last week and concede 5+. The oldest defence and attack in the league will be no match. Kotara's midfield might actually complete a pass this week.

    You have to wonder what in the hell the coach is doing, surely there's a sacking on the way!!!

    Maybe they only have a squad of genuine reserve graders and no real strong first graders. Might explain why first grade struggle

    I guess the semis in ressies is more important then 1st Grade???

    You got us stuff 1st grade and fighting off relegation, we'll lower grade finals any day🤥🤢😉

    But seriously every player in ressies this year would give up finals no worries, if it meant a first grade win this weekend and keeping us in ZPL. We all know how hard everyone worked getting us promotion. Especially as about half our team are from the 1st grade squad last year that did it.

    agreed that cardiff might pip mayfield this weekend, last chance before finals to ruin the unbeaten season. When was the last time a team did it? I know Bero went pretty close last year.

    I think this is one of the things people simply don't understand about Zone football.

    The difference in quality from Third Grade to Reserve Grade to First Grade is ridiculous.

    Not many squads could swap their Thirds & Reserve grade squads and be competitive. Same thing with Reserves & First Grade. It's simply another level that players often can't step up to.

    You also have clubs like Cooks Hill & Garden Suburb, who are renouned for having very strong and consistent Reserve Grade squads, but can struggle in First Grade. You'll find a lot of the players in Reserves, for the most part, have played together for a number of years, but just can't step up consistently into First Grade.

    So if the Dero’s get a point and Jesmond lose, jeso go down. If bero lose they go down.

    If Bero and Jesmond get a point Barnley go down. Hard ask, would be insane.

    Crazy turn around from Barnsley to get that result and put it back on the other teams to secure their spot in ZPL after last week.

    Suns ressies up 22-0 midway through second half. 4 more goals would see them progress ahead of Barnsley on goal difference.
    It's football, not s***er!!

    In a crazy game, Jesmond last minute goal makes it 28-1. Suns fall one goal short of a semi final place.
