Following various disruptions caused by public transport strikes, all Week 3 games went ahead as scheduled as teams looked to push on in the TeaClub Premiership. A bumper attendance of 172,283 turned out for the matches. Unfortunately that was for the real Premier League games. A mere 40,392 turned up to see the TeaClub Premiership games. A record low.
Week 3 Results
It was another great week for Dorset Coasters who got one over their rivals, the Bristol Bluebirds. They are now the only team unbeaten and sit top of the league on 9 points. Jack’s efforts on the public transport to London paid off when Yorkshire Tea FC put two goals past Islington Piacha on a wet day in North London. Miles Smugglers and Brew Tea Utd scored one-a-piece in an entertaining encounter at Marshfield, unlike Sporting Punjana and Lancashire Tea FC which finished 0-0. Finally, Welsh Brew Town‘s good start to the season came to an end against AFC Ringtons, who could have easily won by more had it not been for a string of “No penalty” decisions from referee Nick “Niko” Calvert. He is now under investigation for match fixing.
Week 3 Table
Week 4 Highlight
A pick of the week has to be the fierce mid-table clash between Yorkshire and Lancashire. The White Rose versus The Red Rose. Pudding versus Hotpot. It’s at St. Helens Arena, so expect an intimidating atmosphere from the home fans, and a huge police presence.
