    At the game I went to on Sunday, the away side subbed their keeper with 10 minutes to go, which saw 101 replacing 1. Madness..

    Late to this, but Lowdham Ladies U11s have a Bony-style situation on their hands this season.

    My twins are in the 15-strong squad, and were allocated 2 and 3 when the shirts were handed out when the team started up a year ago. V, the youngest, strangely got 2 while L, the oldest, got 3, by dint of standing next to the coach when he handed out the shirts fresh out of the box. V is the less physical of the pair and has drifted towards preferring playing in attack where she doesn't have to tackle, so the team often starts with 2 in attack in their seven-a-side games.

    She's not scored yet, so the Bony comparisons can continue.

    (The 3 is a determined all-action type of player, very reminiscent of Carlton Palmer, all legs and energy. She plays more often in defence, you will be pleased to learn.)

    The two best players are 9 and 10. Old school.

    Meanwhile, Carlton Town in the (NPL) Evostik North have only last weekend taken delivery of their 2017/18 home kit. So, they have been wearing last season's kit, which has been missing a number 8 all season, which is why they have lined up 1-7, 9, 10, 11 and 18 so far this term. Splendid stuff.

    The U9 team I help coach, in the finest tradition, have a hand-me-down kit with two different shirt styles and squad numbers something like 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 17. The two 8s can cause some consternation

    At the Liverpool v Spartak Moscow youth game I went to yesterday afternoon the two clubs clearly had different philosophies. Liverpool's starting line up wore 1-11 with the subs going up to 18. On the other hand it was clear that Spartak automatically give a number to anyone in any of their squads - one of the substitutions was number 80 for number 81.

    That could also be down to differing rules about squad numbers in the domestic league. Perhaps Spartak are required to give every player who's part of their system a shirt number, for instance. I have no idea either way whether or not they do, but it's a possibility.
