The Identity Shakers
: surprise win
Theobald Smallman who's first team career was cast aside last week was named in the starting eleven for this weeks game AND scored the decisive goal against one of the title favourites.
The Shakers hit nedsnutters with two quick successive blows just before the break and managed to hold on until the final whistle despite a late consolation goal by the home side.
"We decided to pop Theo in the front line for this weeks game as he's really picked up in training after the announcement of his first team retirement - he's not as quick and nimble as he once was but he can still hold his nerve when it comes to finding the net".
"We've got a home game against runaway leaders Livercrewe Tigers coming up and I've got to say we're looking in good shape and confidence, form and morale are at an all time high. You never know - we might just be capable of doing something special with the backing of a home crowd".
The Identity Shakers
: Identity Club Statement
"The time has come for the Identity Shakers to incorporate some of our stars from the youth side into the first team".
"It gives me great pleasure to announce that Alan Carrol (405155544), Daniel Vaughan (408616631) and Neil Lutz (168313175) will all begin their senior Shaker careers this season under the watchful eyes of new signing Henryk Pachulski (376230255) who was bought this week as a mentor to the future stars".
"It is with regret that we announce the imminent retirement of club legend and captain Theobald Smallman (290538306) from first team league action".
Theobald has scored 264 goals including 26 hattricks in his long and illustrious career but still hopes to break into the top ten All Time Leading English goal scorers (/World/Stats/StatsPlayers.aspx?view=GoalsEver) by making appearances in the early Cup rounds over the next few seasons.
"We would like to thank Theo for everything he has done for the club"
: Ludwig Lanz takes the reigns
After struggling in the bottom of the table for half a season the Cowberries board of directors decided to replace coach Joel Chandler. The hope is that this change will motivate the players to make an extra effort in the second half of the season.
Veteran player Ludwig Lanz was chosen to become Cowberries' new head coach. He has been with the club for 5,5 seasons and have a deep knowledge of the club culture. Some fans have voiced their concern that appointing a loyal club servant as Lanz won't be a big enough change to the Chandler era.
It is easy to understand these concerns, but the board are urging the fans to concider that Joel Chandler already had the position when the club changed ownership and Ludwig Lanz is the first coach hired by them.
Joel Chandler has been rewarded a place in the club's Hall of Fame for achieving the club's first promotion.

Red Berries Forever!!!
: Cup Run Ends.
Sam Scouse was in a pensive mood yesterday, after The Reds were dumped out of the cup by Los Azuliblancos.
"We did our best against a superior team but we just didn't have the same level as them," the boss said to reporters after the game.
"Our lads, however did us proud to give us a 3-2 lead at half time but it was always going to be a tough game to win.
"We gave them a scare and I felt we could have pulled off a spectacular win if I was able to field players of the calibre they had."
Sam was extremely positive when asked about the future, especially as the team were doing extremely well in the league and look certain to promote at the end of the season.
"There are big times ahead of us," said Sam, "and the continuing support from everyone in the club, as well as the supporters, is what will help us make it to the Premier League."
