Charlton Life FC vs Ipswich Town Supporters - players wanted


After 9 or so years running Charlton Internet FC and fresh from the success of the Worldnet tournament last month, AFKA and I would like to have a stab at running a Charlton Life FC. Ideally we'd play 5 or so games a year (so no massive commitment) against supporters of other clubs / other forums as part of the Internet Football Association (IFA) League. Games are 90mins, usually played on the morning of the 'main match' and are followed by a couple of beers with the opposing fans. It's unlimited rolling subs (so lack of fitness not an excuse!) and the main purpose is to have a laugh whilst playing for 'our club'. Ability is not of paramount importance here - yes it's great to win games, but (for us at least and the teams that we will play against) it's more about the having a laugh and seeing how we get on. There are a large number of people on here who have played for CIFC in the past and each of them will be able to vouch for a) it being a laugh and b) it being about having the right 'attitude' over ability (altho don't let that put you off if you are a great footballer!).

The games will be played in Charlton (pitch tbc), but aiming for Meridian / Charlton Park with an 11am KO so you'll be able to get to the ground / pub in good time and and will be reffed (likely by me, unless Spankie is available). We do have an old Charlton kit if you don't have a shirt and we can usually muster up enough socks and shorts to go round...

So, the gauntlet has been thrown down by Ipswich Town supporters, who would like to play us on the morning of Oct 4th. I realise that this is the day before the charity run, which might impact on an abilityto get a team out this time, but I would be extremely grateful if you could let me know if a) you're interested in playing for CLFC at some point in the future and b) specifically whether you can play on Oct 4th vs Ipswich. If we can't get a team out this time, we'll look to get a team out another day.

If you have any questions, please leave me a message below or send me a whisper.

    I`m glad it wern`t just me who thought this was funny ;-)
  • I'll play if your desperate!!
  • Great stuff - you're all in :-)

    Seriously, for those who are worried about fitness / ability etc it's a case of who wants to play, not who's good enough to play....

    For added spice, Riscardo is going to ref.....something which has to be witnessed first hand at least once in a lifetime....

    I'll confirm with Ipswich and then sort out details over the next couple of weeks.

    Cheers all - and please continue to leave names if you're interested - the more the better.
