    It was working fine on Sunday and we had no idea it was not working, but if it helps we have sent a request to get it looked at....so the next team doesn't suffer.

    Redhead better team 1st half going in 2-0. Cardiff came out with increased energy 2nd half and could've won. Our keeper probably the reason they didn't, he pulled off some great saves.
    Friggin cold night. Field wasn't too bad and good to see they've been able to mark #2.
    I know there's talk of electricity shortage but TURN YOUR HOT WATER ON!
    Sounds like your a serial shower whinger, Would you like soap and a scrubber too????

    O35C

    Valo 3
    Dudley 0

    Went 3-0 up very quick but Dudley got better as the game went on.

    Good to finally get our first game on our home ground.

    Maybe you should be worried about the game, other then the shower afterwards

    The cold beers and a warm shower after a game are definitely higher priorities for O35's.

    Valo v Dudley (2-2 i think)
    All of this is only my opinion but I couldn't help posting it. I am a former ref who has moved to play AA so i have some strong opinions on treatment of refs. I understand the heat of the game gets to all of us but i believe players can still treat refs fairly, particularly when they are clubby.
    My issue is that during tonight's game this club referee again copped criticism from players on the field to the point of needing to issue a yellow for dissent to a Dudley player. It is embarrassing enough to get a yellow for dissent normally but to get one for speaking back to a clubby is just wrong in my opinion. NNSW is launching massive campaigns to try and get respect back into the game and it is entirely for things like this. Now you could call it an over-reaction on my part because I am so passionate about treating refs better but I believe players need to have a long look at themselves and question why it is they struggle to get refs out to games.
    My second gripe comes from a player (claiming they use to ref) trying to encourage the clubby to not record the 2 yellows because there was one each way so they cancel out, again trying to strong arm a clubby to suit themselves

    Now I am sorry that this was so negative on what was by other accounts a decent night to get out and play after weeks of being off the park but seeing a close friend of mine helping out the soccer community to be treated like that made me disappointed. Again this is not an attack on either team (I am not affiliated with either team) but i just feel so strongly that when we have clubbys helping out we should be thanking them for helping us play

    Had it happen to me last year, was doing an o/35 game last year, gave out 2 cards for dissent, and tbh had I not been a clubbie who was a registered ref that year and sending someone off would've meant some questions I didnít want to answer, I wouldíve punted the keeper for trying to intimidate me

    Now that being said I think all clubs should be required to have someone with reffing experience as a clubbie. Iíve helped out my club, but in my game today we had someone who clearly had no idea what they were doing. Things like allowing subs when the keeper had the ball in their hands when it didnít go out, not allowing subs on free kicks, no cards, whistling every time the ball goes out, club ARís actively coaching the home team players as they ďreffedĒ, consistently pointing the wrong way for restarts. Honestly I know reffing is hard, but jeez, wasnít a good look.

    G'day DJ. Dudley (Redhead) played Cardiff on Friday night. We played Valo the week before losing 0-3 and from memory there was no criticism of the club ref. In fact we all thought he did a great job and appeared he had played higher level football. Such was his understanding of letting the game play.
    I can only guess it may have been another grade? looks like O35 FRI B.

    Yup, I think you are right. Valo O35C played Cooks Hill this Friday night.

    Ended up getting up 3-0 at National park, to be fair it was a much closer game than the score shows.

    I'm presuming the Muswellbrook team contains a lot of players from their zl3 squad from last year?
    Quality side, it looks like they are in the wrong grade. Surely an A grade side?

    Hey All,

    I hope everyone is keeping safe.

    Has there been any talk about current outstanding rescheduled fixtures and potential future washouts being marked as draws? Or any other solution? Obviously every team has been affected but using my team for example we have 9 games to be played in total (both rescheduled/future fixtures) before the end of the season. The last weekend of the regular season is 13/08 which is only 6 weekends away including this weekend where there will be no soccer again. Given weather forecast and the rain we have had already this will lead to more washouts both on weekends and mid week.

    Haven't heard anything myself, but i am assuming the logistics will force some 1-1 washout scores
