The future of Sporting Apostrophes – have you say!

Posted under Announcements, The league

As some of you will know, Powerleague have announced that the Liverpool Street venue will be closing some time in mid-October.

The options for Sunday league 5-a-side in London are surprisingly limited; the only option as I see it is to stay¬†at Liverpool Street for the next 4 to 5 weeks when we’ll be transferred to Powerleage Docklands (Crossharbour DLR).

Crossharbour is admittedly not as central as Liverpool Street but realistically we’re not going to find anywhere that is, and it’s easily reached from Bank on the DLR in about 15 minutes. The pitches are 2 minutes walk from the station.

I’d be interested to hear what you guys think though – are you up for a weekly trip to Crossharbour?

Division II teams confirmed

Powerleague London City have confirmed that the following 8 teams will be lining up for the new season starting next Sunday:

El Paso
Flat Back Four
Green Park
Minety
Sporting Apostrophes
Team Wang
U.B.O.C.
VJJ

Relegated El Paso must be considered early favourites for the division II title, followed closely by Flat Back Four, who narrowly missed out on promotion last season. VJJ are something of an unknown quantity: their recent results suggest they could well be the dark horse of the division. Old rivals Green Park and Minety seem destined for a mid-table dogfight, with perennial strugglers U.B.O.C. and Team Wang propping up the table. If there is any justice in this world, Sporting Apostrophes, as the world’s greatest football team, will hold aloft the championship trophy at the end of the season.

Please leave a comment, outlining your prediction for this season. Predictions from non-Sporting Apostrophes players are especially welcome!

The dawn of a new era?

Powerleague City
“Behold the abundance of pitch girth and non-indoors goodness”

Tabloid rumours suggest that the Super A’s will be transferring to Powerleague City next season, just a 5-minute walk from Powerleague Old Street.

“The pitches are much wider, and, as they have a second tier, the Apostrophes will thrive amongst poor quality teams,” noted one season ticket holder, who appeared unfazed at the prospect of watching the Super A’s at a different arena. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting that they’re anything other than heroically uber-boss and brilliant,” he added.

Chairman Ernest Borgnine was unavailable for comment.
