A reminder to all clubs and teams – especially in the junior grades: please don’t warm up on pitches, even if there is a free one next to the one you are scheduled to play on. With the inclement weather at this time of year it’s hard enough keeping pitches in playing order, warming up on them only adds to the issue.
We know that having a drink after your game is something many players enjoy but please remember that alcohol cannot be consumed at sports grounds except in licensed clubrooms. So, if you’re celebrating a win or commiserating a loss, support the local club and stay on the right side of the law. As always, drink responsibly and ensure you have a designated driver.
