I will bear this in mind next year.

i used to use lloyds when i was just doing the county test and they didnt require doctor / nurse signature or practice stamps on the test certificate / letter. i suppose i was unsure they / the fa would accept a test that didn't quite match their requirements
my GP hasnt charged me the last 3 seasons, though they did just charge my Mrs for a 'fit to fly' letter as she's pregnant.
But the person doing to BP check at a Lloyds pharmacy isn't a medical practitioner as required by the FA, so you risk the person running the test refusing to accept it. I saw this happen one year where a referee had got his form stamped by the manager at his gym. The argument was it must be a doctor or a practice nurse.
It says on the form gp, practice nurse or similar proffession so it is left to interpretation on the similar proffession. I think most would accept unless being a bit busy. Tbh I will be changing doctors as this is just a final straw in a long list of issues my wife and I have with them so hopefully the new docs wont charge next year. That said if they so then I'll just pay it. Its half a match fee so its not a biggy. Just annoyed that some are charging and others arent.. lack of consistency - its like Last weeks ref except last years nurse.
Doctor: "You look exhausted!"
Gullible New Referee: "I am. When your nurse phoned me yesterday and told me that I have to come today for a blood test, I spent the whole night studying for it."
I'm at Bolton too tomorrow, best of luck tomorrow then James and see you tomorrow
2.67 in 12 mins done and dusted. Hello big juicy fat burger!!!!
Well done. 2.7 done for me. Wouldnt say I struggled with it but certainly wasnt my normal standard.
Congrats the key thing is we passed!! TBH I was flunking all my practice runs couldn't get past the 2.5 mark... time to get a cheeky cheat meal now all the best with the season matey. What league will you be on this season?
I'm on the north west combined counties pool. So Cheshire/Cheshire West/Liverpool/Manchester league and assistant on northwest counties. From what I hear there will be a lot of assisting.
Nice one James, Nalbi!
Track at Brentwood was nice and fast so I sneaked 2,850. Happy days! Bag of wine gums for my celebration
