• Shrewsbury Teachers •

Shrewsbury Teachers were another one of the 5 new expansion teams we welcomed in Dec/2006. In their Santa Claus hats, it was obvious that they brought a serious squad to the competition.

From the get-go, they jumped on to the matches methodically, pulling out some favourable scores, and finishing their group a strong 2nd (behind LesGaulois French). In the end, they finished 6th overall, on a narrow loss to Winking Frog in the QFs, signaling that they will be a tough competition in 2007.

Self Description:

Shrewsbury Teachers are a mixture of those who can't play football, and those who think they can but actually can't — and, one who could play but isn't the player he used to be.

Basically, we are a group of ageing, bitter teachers who aren't fit enough to play in the Sunday league anymore!

Over the Years:

[Feb/2007] — Shrewsbury Teachers had a good run, and plenty of good laughs (especially after beating Cosmos during the Group Stage!).
