SUNDAY LEAGUE

The final game of the Premier League season predictably caused us a few issues this week, but thankfully it’s over for a few months now…

PREMIERSHIP

Only one game survived in the top flight, and it saw Beercalona strengthen their grip on the Premiership title as they saw off Duno. A debuting Callum Thompson grabbed a double in a 5-2 win that sees them go 8 points clear at the top, but that lead could be whittled away when the other teams finally play all of their games…

CHAMPIONSHIP

Just the one game in the Championship too, with Nice Buns B going up against The Veterans as they attempt to keep the pressure on leaders FC AOTS. They did their goal difference a lot of good this week as Danny Wilson scored 5 and Jimmy Williamson 4 in a crushing 13-1 win.

LEAGUE ONE

It’s looking extremely unlikely that The McMuffin Men are going to be caught at the top of League One, as they picked up a fairly routine 10-5 win over second placed Polish Army. Daniel Havern topped scored with 5 goals, with Sam Delgado chipping in with a hat trick of his own as McMuffins make it 8 out of 8. Fat Boys Run Wild look to be heading for the bottom division for the new season, and the fell to another defeat this week, losing 7-3 to Inter Your Sister who leapfrog Team Tom into third place. They shared the goals around this week, with just the returning Simon Steel grabbing a double.

LEAGUE TWO

Step Brothers dropped into the basement for the remainder of the season and picked up their first win in a while to damage Pathetico Madrid‘s promotion hopes. Dom Cioffi grabbed three of their goals in an 8-5 victory. New boys The 69ers couldn’t have had a more comfortable start to life in the Sunday league as they hammered CA FC 19-2. Matt Theaker scored 7 and Charlie Williamson 6, but things will presumably get more difficult for them as time goes on…

We also had Wilmslow Whoppers down for a friendly this week, as they filled in to give KR FC a game. Unfortunately an injury meant that we couldn’t complete the full 50, as Dan Exley’s three helped Whoppers to a 7-3 lead when the game had to come to a premature end.

THE BRAND NEW SUNDAY LEAGUE KICKS OFF ON 16TH JUNE – SPACES AVAILABLE!

MONDAY LEAGUE

PREMIERSHIP

Hangovers from the final day didn’t overly affect the turnout this week, with just Nice Buns letting the side down… There was a potential banana skin for Expected Toulouse in their quest to claim the Premiership title as they took on Kinky Slipper this week. They edged the first half as Waz Akram gave them a 3-2 half time lead, and an early flurry of second half goals helped them pull clear. Akram ended up with 4 and Ryan Dolan scored three as Toulouse won 11-7 to move to the brink of the title, with Wes Harney’s hat trick for Kinky counting for nothing. Netsix & Chill will soon be classed as former champions, but they had one of their good weeks this week as they picked up a 5-2 win over Cheadle FC. Ryan Saunders scored two of their goals as they at least ensured they will remain in the top flight for the new campaign.

CHAMPIONSHIP

Ruby Kazan will be joining that top flight, but they were given a bit of a shock this week as they had to work very hard for a 6-5 win over Delph & Safety, who found some form from somewhere that they haven’t displayed in a number of weeks. Howie Thomas-Leech grabbed three of their goals, with Mitch Massa scoring three in reply for Delph, but Ruby make it 8 wins from 9 games. Buff Daddy FC (name still to be ratified) have completed their Championship fixtures since moving back down a level, and they’ve ended with 5 straight wins as they eventually, comfortably beat Athletico Pathetico 10-2 this week. Shane Bridges scored 5 second half goals as they turned a 2-1 half time lead into an 8 goal victory. It took 23 minutes for the deadlock to be broken in the game between Phantom Brazilians and Unprotected Cesc (soon to be renamed…) this week, but Pete Tickle’s goal was the first of 6 goals that Cesc were able to run in without reply, meaning a first clean sheet for Cesc ‘keeper Anthony Matthews. Tickle ended up with three and Gareth (surname unknown) added two in the final minute to give Cesc the 6-0 win as they look to end the season in style.

THE MONDAY LEAGUE IS CURRENTLY FULL! IT’S A GOOD JOB WE HAVE A BRAND NEW LEAGUE STARTING SOON THAT HAS SPACES FOR TEAMS…!

TUESDAY LEAGUE

With Champions League disruptions a thing of the past we were hoping for a pretty full turnout this Tuesday. It didn’t happen… Club Tropicana have become the first team to complete their fixtures in the first portion of the season, but they didn’t end the way they would have wanted as they suffered a heavy defeat, going down 9-3 to Speshull City. Luke Walker scored three, while Niall Brooks and Dean Simpson added two each as Speshull continue their 100% restart to Ballers life. Another team with a 100% start are Snorting Lisbon, and they took the opportunity to play catch up this week with two games, and they picked up a maximum 6 points from two fairly comfortable wins. Firstly they beat Stroke Titty 8-1 with hat tricks from Rob Brocklehurst and James Taylor, then they eased to an 11-6 victory over Leavemyarsealona. They killed the second game off by going 7-0 up in the opening 17 minutes, and 4 goals each from Kris Fawcett and Taylor allowed them to cruise to victory in the second period, with Scott Stokes and Mark Markwell grabbing two each in reply for Leavemy.

The only other game played this week was a friendly as Wilmslow Whoppers came in to give Gangstas Allardyce a game. A tight first half became a slightly one sided second period as Olly Ford scored 5 as Whoppers edged to a 9-4 win.

SPACES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE TUESDAY LEAGUE AS WE APPROACH THE LEAGUE SPLIT – GET IN TOUCH FOR DETAILS!

WEDNESDAY LEAGUE

The big two in the Wednesday faced off for the first time this season as champions Wellspring took on a New Team side who still had a 100% record since joining. This one was a belter, with the highlights available to view over on the Facebook page, and despite leading three times Wellspring couldn’t hang on as New Team claimed a point from a 3-3 draw. Shane Bridges second of the game seemed to have won the game for Wellspring, but Rob Elliott’s last minute leveler meant the points were shared. Another equally tight game took place as Stockport Eagles took on Out Of Shape FC. After going in level at 1-1 at the break, two goals from David in the second half saw the Shapers claim a 3-2 win.

A hastily thrown together random team had a little too much for FC Rhino Ket, claiming a fairly comfortable win.

THE WEDNESDAY LEAGUE IS FULL! SUNDAY, TUESDAY OR THURSDAY ARE YOUR BEST BET
