Bunky Chollox steal Athletico Shenley Sponsor|
Bunky Chollox no.9 Sean de Fraine helped
Athletico Shenley in progressing to the 2nd day of
the World Cup 6 a-side tournament. The tournament held at Loughton was
contested by 64
teams, Athletico playing as Japan! After a no show by Portugal (was their
plane late?) resulted
in a 1-0 forfeit win Shenley (aka Japan) drew their 2nd game before winning
their last to make it
through to the finals on the Sunday as league winners. No one was shocked
at their fine performances
except for their manager Craig Neale whom already had other plans arranged for
the 2nd day!!
The rain came down on day 2 and results didn't go Japan's way. An early
much needed bath resulted
after playing in the worst rain of the year to hit usually sunny Loughton.
Athletico, watched by their new sponsor, had seen enough and withdrew his offer of
sponsorship to complete on a much more realistic chance of silverware by
sponsoring the might Bunky Chollox.
Sean did explain Bunky's already had a shirt deal, but the MD was more than
happy to sponsor
the 2nd Kit on the off chance it gets at least one appearance a year.
The MD congratulated Chris, Gary, Matt, Lee, Pat, Grant and Neil on some fine
performances and advised
look for a club that could take them forward before handing over the new shirt
