Bad Lads FC: Attack of the Clones

Hello and welcome to Episode 2 of Bad Lads FC. Last weekend, we played Cancho FC in our second match of the Spring Season. [If you don’t know what any of those words mean, you’ll probably want to go back and read my previous post in which I explain the league, and what this post series is about.] To refresh everyone’s memory, here’s what I wrote about Cancho last week:

Cancho FC – Cancho are one of two new teams in our division. Cancho was founded this Winter by someone who left our team to start his own. He took with him a few of our other players.

That’s right, pity thyself reader (who am I kidding), for this is about to turn into an amateur soccer blog for the next few months.

First, some background on the competition. GPSD has two divisions in its open age bracket (I’m 24, so, we definitely don’t play in Over 30s). We play in Division 2. This season, Open Division 2 has six teams; it’s a ten game season, so we play everyone twice. Our first match was this past Saturday, March 10th, and our last match will be June 24th, unless we finish in the top two spots and make it to the final. GPSD plays three seasons a year; Spring and Fall are 10 matches each and features promotion/relegation, Winter is five matches and does not.

The six teams are as follows: Continue reading “Bad Lads FC: A New Hope”
