    There is no secondary signal for pre-engaging or early drive.

    Generally most people use a hand passing in front of the body in the direction of the movement.

    interestingly, eventhough this signal is omitted from current law book, it was first noted as being in use many years ago.

    Pictured here is the referee in a friendly between Thebes Racing and Stade Alexandria circa 2000BC

    Perhaps OB.. can provide an exact date?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals
