Thumbs up Football, Rugby or Cricket

Not sure if this is a sand pit thread or not... Oh well...

I have recently moved to Dubai and I am really looking to find a few sports clubs/teams/kickabouts, as much to keep me fit and socialise as anything...

I have come accross a few league football teams but that all seems a bit serious to me... Can anyone point me in the right direction????

Thank you...

I will pop down next week with a bit of luck, as I am moving to near Safa Park next week. Do you still look like a young Daley Thompson?

Well that must have been the reason no one wanted to play on my team when i was a kid, my orrible shirt...

I thought through the years we set a precedent for top shirts, the brown one, classic stripes when we won the cup, the year after a fetching hummel version and some really nice designs since... Well maybe you have to be a Cov fan!!
