Welcome to the second game in the 2015 Uppies and Downies series in Workington.
The ball will be thrown off at 6.30pm at the Cloffocks.
The sun is shining and Uppies will be looking to claim a second victory while Downies will want to make it a tie.
James - a match veteran - and Federica, a newbie, are your reporters on the scene today and Tom Kay will be providing the photographs. (I got into trouble for forgetting to mention Tom during Good Friday's game). His images will be online later and in the Times & Star on Friday.
Tonight's ball was made by Mark Rawlinson and filled by Shane Ball.
James is hoping for a quick game - he's used to covering Reds - but the whistle won't be blown after 90 minutes here.....
While we're waiting, I've been told today that reports that 2016's balls will have tracking devices in them are not true......
if you're on the Cloffocks, you can still join in with us - just use Twitter and use hashtag #uppies
Evening Northside! It'll hopefully be a good one tonight!
Crowds are starting to gather in anticipation....
Appears that there's fewer people, but it is a school night.....
These are the beautiful people who are ready to work for you
Joe Clark, a veteran Uppie, said he is really looking forward to another victory and spirits in the uppie camp are high. He added: "It's been a long time coming".
Robert Daglish is throwing off the ball. Now 35, he's been doing it since he was eight. He said he was happy to keep up the family tradition and hopes his son Harry, now two, will continue it.
It's started and it's in the beck already!
between two and three hundred people are there
Looks like it's going to be a hard fought contest already!
Proper scrap happening - no one is taking any prisoners
ball making its way towards leisure centre site
uppies doing a big push, downies not able to hold
downies surge now. everyone's in water
We're only about 50 yards from the throwing off point - and sorry all the way, yes in the beck, not the river.
Hope the sun's warmed the beck up for them.....
bear with us - photos not quite in order :D
James reckons there's more Uppies than Downies tonight, but it's hard to tell
We're still just about 60 yards from the throwing off point - neither side is allowing the other to gain any sort of advantage
