The Founders reunite December 2015
How it all started:
1994 a crack Football Team was sent to Shenley by an optimistic manager for a
game they didn't want. These men promptly lost from the outset and retired to
the bar. Today, now feared by all, they survive as footballers of skill. If
you have a game, if no one else can play, and if you can find them, maybe you
can challenge Bunky Chollox FC."
|Once upon a time a bunch of mates,
relatives and work colleagues decided to chance the skill and flair they had
discovered playing six a-side on a Saturday by entering the Shenley Leisure
Centre 6 a-side leagues. How wrong could they have been, they lost and lost some
more, the highlight of that first year though was being runners up in the cup.
The football world was stunned but it was just a start of things to come. Over
the years players came and went, but even 10+ years on it's still the original
hard core uproar that exist. Results started to turn and Bunky's turned into a
well skilled football machine, leading the league, winning the cup, feared by
many, respected by all. To this day all players are in their prime and look
forward to each new season with major excitement. One of the fairest sides you'll meet,
sporting in defeat, proud in victory they can always be found warming down with
a pint and pork scratchings in the bar afterward.
Over 15 years have passed, long may
November 2011 saw the club move a step closer to world domination with
founder member Russell Forbes creating the New Zealand arm of the club.
