Football Report 2013

In order for the pitch to be rotated between both football and cricket, we only played 24 matches (in 30 weekends) against other teams during 2013. Due to weather conditions we have cancelled 2 matches. In order to train the team we spent 2 weekends practising, and the other two weekends were occupied by festivities (Easter and Hockey match).

Despite the unusually rigorous weather conditions during the football season, we were favoured with many beautiful sunny mornings enabling us to enjoy to the full the Club`s facilities.

The competitive level of the matches was very high, providing good moments of football.

However, the main aim of the matches is to provide our members with an opportunity to play sport and socialize and hopefully provide a source of healthy entertainment for our spectators.

We have succeeded in bringing younger members to the team and it is particularly gratifying to see different generations playing side by side, sometimes even fathers and sons, on the same team.

With regard to the Badger Cup, after bringing back the cup to the north on 12th May 2012 (a memorable game in which we beat the Casuals 6-1, that was very competitive and civilized), we did not play due to the difficulties in arranging a suitable weekend for both teams.

Our results during the year were:

Matches: 24 (11 wins; 2 draws; 11 losses)

Goals: 143 goals (69 scored and 74 suffered)

As football is all about scoring goals, our goal statistic of almost 6 per match on average, shows that we have had some quite exciting games.

We take great pleasure in organizing these matches and providing a source of entertainment for our members and we would again like to stress that all are welcome to join us on Sunday mornings at 11 am, either as players or as spectators.
