Following further research I fear that I may stumbled on a side issue but perhaps a potential reason for the Young Team behaviour at Brechin. IT is amazing the effect that E-additives and caffeine can have on adolescents. We would not be banning them. We should be sending them to a dietician.

With regard to my own experience 

As a Rugby league player in my youth I would always have  a Capstan Full strength at half time, this settled my nerves.

When I joined the Fire Brigade I was subjected to non stop training for 10 weeks. This involved  days from 6 in the morning to 7 at night, we went home at weekends.

We ran, carrying ladders , running out heavy flax hose. Pitching wheeled escapes. Carrying live bodies down escape ladders over 50 feet. Pumping water for hundreds of yards , repeating the drill over and over again,

When I finished the course, I could play football for hours and not feel it.

One of the hardest drills was running on Morecambe beach in soft sand till we dropped.  Footballers have no idea how tough training can be and what the human body can stand.

Strength and stamina are important to footballer.  . My old team Wimbledon under Vinny Jones had plenty of that.

Those horses all were well fed

When the bell rang whatever they were doing in town, irrespective of the drivers command would attend the fire station pronto.

The steamers were attached to the horses, the men would turn in and the first to arrive would get a shilling
