It's an oddity that 3 premier league games have been called off because of policing issues, i.e the forces that usually police the games have lent officers to bolster numbers in the capital.

Meanwhile the Metropolitan police were able to field a team in the FA cup qualifying round, they won too, so well done to them and, being parochial well done to Scarborough Athletic who won also.
And to Farsley Celtic too who actually drew at AFC Fylde (a made-up name for a made-up team) in the same FA Cup Qualifying round.

Saturdays draw leads to tonight's replay at Farsley which is handy for me as I love live sport especially FA Cup, friendly family club

AFC Fylde are one of the most disliked football teams. if you have time, then look on YouTube under:

'AFC FYLDE: The most hated team in non-League football'

- about 25 minutes long an eye-opener, you won't regret it

Metropolitan Police haven't had a serving police officer play for them for years.

Pretty much the former. It's still a police club, as I understand it, in that police and their staff can be members and go there to play a bit of sport and have a drink, etc, but the players are semi-professional and no different to players at any other club at a similar level.
