Does anyone else hate the cross-kick?

Anyway I don’t know if anyone envisaged the world grinding to a standstill like it’s about to do. All we can really do is try to stay healthy and stay positive. Doing their level best to keep things rolling on the entertainment side is SchoolSportLive with a few trips down recent memory lane starting this weekend with the offerings below.
