Staff 5–a–side team ready for the new season

Well for some reason the Academics have entered the Atomic footy league again.

In addition to last year's squad of

Stuart Mackenzie (star striker but never seen in defence)
Rob Deeth (rumoured to have been a star striker before he did his back in)
Pat Unwin (midfield dynamo but too often on international duty)
Stefan (Bonaldo) Bon
Guy Clarkson (rock solid defender)
Chris McConville (ringer from Physics)
and myself

the academics have entered into the transfer market and bought Andrew Dove for a fellowship and a couple of pints.

We're not quite sure where Andrew will fit into the team but apparently he has in the past been able to run and to kick a ball so that has to be a good thing.

Please do feel free to challenge us to games and we'll do our best to show up. Early morning (eg. 9.00) slots are usually best for the Academics, though for some reason the students are not usually so keen.

And who knows we might get Haddleton back in the squad this year.

See you there, Paul.

  2. The chemical brothers will be happy to play the academics, however we are in the market for a replacement player due the the accident ian has mentioned above, so give us a week or two.

  3. Similarly the mighty Chi Shi are ready and waiting.

    We may have lost three very good players (Andy Xu, Glynn Williams and Alex Lapis) and goalkeeper (Aiden Hayes) but we have a new team that'll hopefully be challenging to retain our title (I'm polishing my winner's medal as I type!!)

    Take care and hopefully no more bad injuries – Mark

  5. Carl, nice to hear from you! How's it going? Team is:

    Me
    Markie D
    The Indestructable Franco
    Big Bad Pete (Franco's seriously happy he doesn't have to play against him this year!!)
    Matt from Shipman group
    Electrochemistry Jon
    Cyril Postdoc in Shipman group
    And last but by no means least: Daljit

    So basically, the remainder of old Chi Shi, plus some of your team from last year plus some others.

    We lost our first friendly 9–2 to a load of Business Studies 4th years the other day (missing a few players though), it's going to be a long hard season!

  7. Its going well cheers Mark…I'm workin for a biochem company called Chroma Therapeutics, workin on cancer research. I'm tryin to sort out a football team for my company to join in the local tournament….We have our 1st kickabout on Tuesday so lookin forward to that.

    Maybe I should bring them to Warwick to take on the might of Chi Shi II! – your team sounds good, u should do well if you have the experience of the ex-MChems! I should be visiting warwick soon so would be cool to meet up and join in a match if you are all around.

    Good luck in keepin the top scorer title!

    Good luck to everyone else as well
    Carl
