Around The Grounds – Full Time

Game Day:Scores.Winter solstice

The winter solstice is here, which means midwinter carnivals, the polar plunge and the shortest day. It also means more daylight from this point on.   While we won’t notice any real difference straight away, it does mean by July there’ll be a fraction more light in the final minutes of the club finals.

Also, spare a thought for the Junior clubs. It’s the time of year when the Saturday morning grounds can be rock hard with frosts which isn’t much fun to be tackled on, or for the parents watching from the sideline.
