Quarter Finalists determined for the ESR FJ Cup

The quarter finalists of the ESR FJ Cup and plate have been determined! Some very interesting teams from both sides. Sala and Suns were the only 2 D1 teams that got knocked into the plate and with Suns gone, Sala must be the favorties to win it. Don't count out Clash or Brunello though, both of them are formidable teams when they are on their A-game. On the cup side we have BFC, the only D3 team left. Certainly the underdog that everyone is keenly following. The other...

Robert Walters TotW (July 2)

Two big games this weekend down at BST.

Fussa FC vs FC International for the plate finals and Zion vs Hibs for the division 1 championship.

Zion vs Hibs was a highly competitive but good spirited game. With a goal difference of over 10 between the two teams, it was unlikely for Zion to win the league as they would be tied in points even if they beat hibs. Regardless, both teams treated the game like the finals... Zion did beat Hibs earlier in the season so...

Robert Walters Team of the Week (April 24)

YCAC may have had the toughest climb for the cup to get to where they are. Having to face off against FC International in their first round, they won the penalties after a 2-2 draw. They next beat Dutch FC and were matched against Nepal United in the cup quarter finals. As a Division 2 team, they've already done very well beating FC International. Even if they lose against Nepal United, one could say that they had a very good run in the cup.

Nepal United were...
