They are rarely seen these days but I'm trying to source 18mm balls. Any suggestions?

The champions league 18mm balls run quite true personally I prefer these to the original white or brown balls. They are a tad heavier but run true n play well . Thats all I use now but its a preference.

Last week we got lucky four or five from the front of the top tier and very near an exit but still freezing ..last January we were four from the very top - horrible and ages to get out

18mm all the way etc etc :)

Watched a match yesterday with a bloke who complained how warm it was at Bradford - in January, like.

This is a bloke who ran the Marathon des Sables a couple of years ago. 250 km across the Sahara in six days, carrying what you need with you in a back pack. 8)

Some folks' idea of fun, eh ? :roll:
