Hi all,
Well, the atomic football league is progressing – results can be found at the atomic sports page on the atomic website


However, people have approached me about badminton/squash.
At the start of the year i tried to organise a league for the above sports but failed to get enough interest. I think there were a few issues with emailing at the time and that may be why response was low.

Anyways, I will be compiling a list of people who would like to play squash and badminton, and I'll post it up on the atomic noticeboard (above the y1 noticeboard) You can sign up there, or by posting on this blog.

The aim is not to run a league but to put people who want a game in contact with each other. If you wish to be put on the list, sign up or post on the blog. Please put name, email address, sport and academic year.

Atomic Football – Atomic Allstars vs Steaua ButylEster

Last thursday saw the start of the footy season for the Allstars and the ButylEsters, in a competitive but well tempered clash at Sportshall Park.

An even-handed start lead to the deadlock being broken by the Allstar's Steve Giggs (ryan's little brother) after around 10mins despite great goal-keeping from the Steaua Stopper. He continued to do great cat impressions for the next 10 minutes, after a flurry of shots from the Allstar's attacking line. Steaua battled hard against an Allstars defence, and were kept out by a combination of good keeping and luck, by Allstars keeper, Ian "the ginger Buffon" Hancock.

With around 20 minutes gone, Jack "Jakalele" Sleigh put one in the bottom right after a great pass from the back line. Unfortunately, the aforementioned heroic keeper was injured in his attempt at a save and had to be replaced.

After this point, the Allstars had a little more dominance, but the ButylEsters attackers proved plenty to deal with, Daniel Gardner proving adept in defence as always.

Steaua's replacement keeper was also good for his gloves, and kept out many of the shots that the Allstars could get past their tough defence. The frontline for the Allstars ploughed away, and Steve managed another good finish, and fancy foreigner, Saddam Al-Ammaren, put in a clinical, SAS-style double tap – typical of his Nottingham roots. It was a battle until the end, but the Allstars held on to their clean sheet. Well played to all those involved.

Final Score:
Atomic Allstars 5–0 Steaua ButylEster

Guten tag,

Those of you into the fair art of badminton may know about the league that is running at the moment. However, I only have one nobleman for the tournament at the moment – the tournament I want to run parallel to the league. (Think of it as the FA cup of badminton).

Those who want to enter, let me know on this blog or by email.
If I get enough entrants, I will draw up a schedule for games which can be played (relatively speaking) at your leisure.
