three men's teams, one ladies' team, and rumours of an MCR team being scraped
together but that has not yet materialised into a fighting unit of players.
Here are some brief and not entirely true descriptions of the teams that do put
The 1st team consists largely of ex-professionals who
have become disillusioned with the greed and corruption that permeates the game
at the highest levels, and who are demonstrating their commitment to honest
football by encouraging grass-roots development through the college league
The 2nd team is the training academy for fledging players looking
to break into the top side. Plans are in place for a purpose-built training
complex designed to take the performance of the players to the astronomical
levels required for college football, but the team currently lacks any such
facilities, and indeed any semblance of physical fitness.
The 3rd team,
captained by the irrepressibly bad Thomas Moran, is where the true quality lies
in New College football. This quality is in no way related to football, and in
fact the standard of play is, according to the captain, comfortably low.
