Thanks Clive

Over the years have played league matches in the middle of winter with no heating available and played with gloves on and thick coat.

Still remember one match we played when the heating at Chorlton's venue failed. No idea why our opponents didn't just claim it on the grounds of an entirely unfit venue!
(Not that it always feels like there's heating there anyway but you do notice its absence :)).

There are some clubs I play at where I suspect the absence of heating is part of the opponents' strategy!
