All entries for October 2005

As of coffee break this morning the Academics are delighted to have made a major new signing to their 5-a-side team.
Alessandro Troisi, from Bologna, joins us after a 2-year spell in the States.
He is disappointed however not to be playing on grass in the tournament, since this was one of the things that attracted him to English football!

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)
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.
