Sportspy Reports Extra – Saturday January 28th 2012

As both AFC Blackpool U11's and U12's were both without a competitive match this weekend, a 'friendly' was arranged at Commonedge Road.  After a frosty start, the sun came out to thaw the pitch in time for kick off.  It turned out to be a great game played under blue skies and with no wind.

The 11's warm up (Nearly there Vinnie). Whatever happened to good old fashioned black boots?
