    Anybody know of a bunch of lads in Galway who play 5/6 aside football who would be interested in another player? I've recently moved to the city and am looking to play a night or 2 a week. Nothing serious, just a bit of craic.

    Pro tip:

    Don't introduce yourself as your internet handle when you do find a game.

    And the award for the most unhelpful post of the day goes to the above.

    OP, I can't find the thread I'm thinking of but try contacting the posters here, here, here or here and you might have some luck.

    I play on Monday, Wednesday and Friday but we've got plenty of players at the moment.

    I'd like to thank the academy, boards, my family...

    I had planned to edit the post and be helpful, but I must have been distracted by something shiny.

    Lots of sound lads that need players from time to time in those threads malice has posted.

    I'd be interested in going for 5 a side as well actually. Been meaning to start doing it again for ages.

    You could edit it but you'll never be able to change my quote!

    That part reminded me of this for some reason :).

    Malice, all those threads are pretty much dead, but like the OP, I'm also interested in a 5-a-side game for fun, so if anyone has anything open or is interested in setting something up, please post here


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,067 ✭✭✭✭ Malice


    Well it'd be no harm in sending PMs to a few of the names in those threads to see if anyone would be interested. You've got 3 so far so you're nearly half way there :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,767 ✭✭✭ civis_liberalis


    What about a dedicated 5-a-sides thread that new ones can be merged to in future? Thought of it a while back but didn't bother mentioning it.

    Something along the lines of "Want to play or need a player for 5-a-side - Post here".

    A bit long... Just an idea anyway.

    There was a thread a couple of years ago that grew to a few pages but I couldn't find it the other day when I went looking.

    Hi,
    There's a group of us booked one of the astro pitch cages in Mervue for the 8:15-9:15pm slot for Tuesdays.
    10 is the ideal number, 12 managable.
    Let me know if you're interested in playing.

    It's just a kickaround amongst some work colleagues/a bit of fun so your skill level isn't important.

    Cheers,
    Pa.

    No need to have separate threads on the same topic so I've merged them together.
    Might as well have this as the official merge for 5-a-side.

    Barcelona are playing Arsenal tomorrow- just in case anyone votes yes but then cancels after realising...

    You were playing soccer right, not doing something else? :p

    Most of the people there will probably say I wasn't playing soccer, but in my mind I was.

    @Mod: can you change the title of this thread? it should something like 'Want to play football' or similar. Someone browsing thread titles mighn't know that this thread is for people who want to play.
