Reserve Team Regular

Hughesvideo, I think you were actually modest in your appraisal of Sunday football standard. I think many Prem teams in Sunday Leagues have players at higher levels than Step 7.
London Harrier, as I mentioned on another thread: I watched Baldon Sports play a semi-final a few days after seeing one of their players (who also plays in the CONFERENCE) giving a casual interview to BBC TV after he scored a goal in the 1st or 2nd round of THE FA CUP - PROPER! Two of their players that day play in the Conference South, and most of the others play at Isthmian/County level (including one who played for the Republic of Ireland at youth level). In terms of PLAY, many Sunday Prem teams are fielding players at steps 4-5. As Hughesvideo said, the difference is that Saturday Leagues are better organised (programmes, admin etc).
London Harrier, please feel free to read the earlier posts on this thread which has incredibly detailed info on the players of Sunday teams who also play for Isthmian/Conference teams in the pyramid on Saturdays.
