    The deadline has now passed for the first game to conclude and a second to begin so we'll definitely only see the ball goaled once today (if at all). Players have until 22:00.

    In case you're confused, 17:30 is the deadline for starting a second game today. If the ball is goaled after that point, that'll be the end of today's action.

    It said: "What is perhaps the saddest is that Scott was taken when he had found true happiness with his partner Sue.

    "We have been robbed of a future that held promise and laughter of a wonderful man so needlessly and heartlessly snatched from our lives."
