I use the green Superfeet ones in my walking boots but haven't tried them in other shoes.

I had plantar facitis as above.... Stretching your calves first thing in the morning will get rid in no time...... Do it even on non game days though...... Pk
buy something called a pro-stretch and use it in the morning and at night - gives you a better calf stretch without straining other parts of your body at the same time.  Also buy a small spiky physio ball and rub it under your foot.  Keep using them even after its gone. Prevention is better than cure.

First round this weekend with new gel insoles. They made a surprising difference.

The heel was still a tender but I wasn't limping for a couple of hours after playing which is usual.

Which insoles did you go for ?

I've had many issues with my plates of meat for ages as I (try) and run 2 to 3 times a week.
Currently have a bruised heel and also had the plantar thing as well.
Stretching is indeed the best way of getting rid of it and also (bear with me here) rubbing the underside of your foot with a golf ball or rolling pin.
It kills but it stretches the tendon/ligament (no idea which one!) and does get rid of it pretty quickly.
It's just one of those things you have to keep on top of, basically RSI in your foot so won't go away forever without some constant exercises.

Rob is right though, man up (it does hurt mind!!).
