Didn't make that any less enjoyable either.
    Talking of swimming, I used to enjoy water polo at the City Swimming Bath. Another long gone sport in the UK as far as I can see.

    Is the long range weather forecast for spectators at FGR that bad?

    Joyce used to be very keen on water-sports as well. I never saw the fascination myself.

    Ah. But will both opinions be in the same thread once Exeweb introduces promotion and relegation?

    Back in the day I was in the Exmouth water polo club for a while.

    Could have been a promising career but, sadly, I got a lifetime ban after my horse pooed in the pool.

    Fair enough but we as ST holders pay our monies up front....we benefit if the team performs well but having committed ourselves financially lose out if it does not.
