I thought I'd make this thread so you can all enjoy the perils and joy of my five-aside indoor football team
Anyway. So the team name is Nameless
. We play at the Modbury ICA (which is chiefly used for indoor cricket
) on Friday evenings. Games usually last for forty-four minutes, the halves are twenty-two minutes long. There's five players on my team currently, but I also play as a backup for another team. We alternate between goalkeepers where everyone does a half every few weeks.
The team comprises of Nathan
, otherwise known as "Aff
". I know him from school and he used to play for Modbury Vista SC in Adelaide. He's mostly used as a midfielder but does wander up front sometimes, and is pretty good in goals.
, otherwise known as "SB
" is probably the best player we have on our team. I've known him for about twelve years, we went to school together and played at Enfield together. He mostly plays in defence because he can't run a lot due to an ankle injury I gave him one time while playing 1x1 in the backyard
. He doesn't score a lot.
Most of our goals are scored by Dale
, nicknamed "Nibs
" for some reason I don't remember. He plays the furthuest forward and has a pretty good shot on him. I went to school with him.
The last player not me is Dariusz
, whose English name is Darek
. He also went to school with me and played at Enfield with SB and myself. He's a midfielder also and usually rotates between Aff and I playing behind Nibs. Scores usually once a game.
And then there's of course, me
. I'm the 'capitan' (Me > Maldini) and team founder. I play as a midfielder or defender usually. I like to get forward but my shooting is awful
although I probably have the hardest shot on the team. I don't have a nickname either.
