We are only a week into what is being called 'lockdown 3' and the absence of football is already beginning to make itself felt.
Yes, at our advanced ages many people are taking it easy but putting on the kit and heading for the astro pitches two or three times a week has literally changed a lot of people's lives - and we miss it. We are all fitter, more skilled, and we have built a large group of likeminded friends. It's not just the football we miss, it's the comradeship, the banter. Things that many of us thought we had left behind many years ago.
