Dargaville Dalmatians FC
: Dalmatians off and running
There's a new game in town. After a lifetime of chasing that egg-shaped ball around, some of the local boys decided to start kicking the round ball with spots for a while, and a new club was born. Local coach Odell Timmins, who has actually watched a few games on Sky Sports, will take the leash and lead the club through its first seasons. Mascots were considered, including "Demons," "Gumdiggers," "Fighting Kumara," et al. But the winning mascot was "Dalmatians," thanks to the large population of Dargavillians of Dalmatian descent (as in Dalmatia, now a part of Croatia and Montenegro). And thus the team colors of blue and brown, as it is on the flag of Dalmatia.
Management has instituted a policy of drafting and using local talent, so come and watch your local boys kick the ball around without using their hands!
Ex Pat Wanderers
: Something is afoot
Big changes on the horizon for Pats as Gargapod breaks his silence to lay out his vision for the future. Normally hidden away this press conference from the man himself is unprecedented.
"Last season was diabolical, I've put Lallement and Risco on the market. They're big players but we need to move on, we stagnated last season. Yes we may have short term disruption but I am prepared to accept the consequences of this choice. I think the core of the team will have enough to stay up. The money raised will be for transfers, there is no debt to clear but finances could be better."
"It is true also that journalists disappeared last season, they are safe and well living it up in Fiji on vodkabulnuts and sausage rolls."
Prepare for a rocky ride this season.
: Sister Club: IceMonkeys
The T-Wolves are proud to announce their affiliation with their new sister club, the IceMonkeys!
The IceMonkeys are a new club out of Minnesota, USA, who are trialing a defensive style of play. Said T-Wolves head coach Dinarte Farela: "We believe the two clubs will have a lot to share with each other, we can help them with their midfield strategies and they in turn can give us pointers on our defense."
