Whither FaTTFC vs BPFC?
This year's 1st & 3rd vs Black Prince football match was less competitive than in previous years. This may be a consequence of BPBC having gained more recent graduates, leaving 1st & 3rd somewhat disadvantaged. How should the fixture be run in future years to keep it competitive?

This poll took me by surprise (I wrote it a week ago and had forgotten about it). Reading it again, it sounds more negative than I'd intended - I should have stressed that we all still thoroughly enjoyed the match!

Also, 'Allow FaT to borrow a couple of ringers from the college 2nd XI' should have been another option.

Looks like the votes are leading to a two-legged fixture - one in Mich term and one in Lent term.

I enjoyed the spectacle of the game deteriorating into rugby...Maybe it should be a game of touch rugby instead of soccer. Then you can explain the rules to us North Americans at the same time.

Can't throw the ball forward. Ridiculous!
