1800hrs and a crew from St John’s ambulance arrive at Victoria Stadium. “Hey but you are one day early?” Someone comments.
The fact is they weren’t. Unknown to many the crew are required at training matches during European home matches and sessions at Victoria Stadium.
A busy week as they face deployment for the training sessions before the Europa League match tomorrow and next week’s Champions League match. At the same time they need to be in attendance for the European Basketball Championships at the sports hall next door.
Maybe they will get their deserved round of applause at some stage.
