Football tonight - and boy have the seasons shuddered and shifted since I last played. The last vestiges of an Indian summer, that sublime September, have faded long passed memory and have been replaced by dark nights, floodlit pitches and a biting wind that whips around the exposed parts and induces the desire to run around just to warm up.
It was a close, tight match and I was unfortunately on the losing side. Not by much, and we could have come back from defeat when the time was up. Good fun, though.
