After the success of the first 2 seasons of the VIP league, which was won by Academy Vets FC & FC Planet Vets respectively. We quickly followed them up by starting the third season on Friday 8th September and this will be the final one of 2017 as its due to end 24th November. We initially started the new season with 7 teams, but Academy Vets FC pulled out after the 2nd week, so we will continue with only 6 teams competing for the VIP Title, the teams are listed below:
- FC PLANET VETS
- PF EXPATS FC
- PA-YAK FC
- RAK-CHANG FC
- NATO FC
- VIRATBENTIRE FC
We are already entering the week 4, and it’s been a very interesting start, with FC Planet Vets, Pa-Yak FC and the new team Viratbentire FC all still with 100% record. This will change this Friday as FC Planet Vets play Viratbentire FC at 8:30pm.
Week 3 Results & Reports:
6.30pm FC PLANET VETS v RAK CHANG: On a very wet night FC Planet Vets struggled to 3-1 win over a resilient Rak-Chang team in the opening game. It was close until the final 4 minutes, when Simon scored his second to make it difficult for Rak-Chang to get back into the game.
7.30pm PF EXPATS v VIRATBENTIRE FC: The second game saw new comers Viratbentire beat a weakened PF Expats team. The home team were struggling as some players were playing whilst injured including the GK, who only last 15 minutes. The visitors took advantage of this with some quick and decisive finishing to comfortable win 5-2.
8.30pm PA YAK FC v ROYLAUNG: The final game of the night saw Pa-Yak comfortably beat Roylaung FC 7-2. The wet conditions seemed to suit the home side more, as they zipped the passes around and broke quickly on the counter attack several times with devastating results.
We are actively looking for more teams for the 1st Season of 2018, so please if your over 35 and have a few friends who want to play in this competitive but fun league contact us immediately.
The VIP league is run on a Home & Away fixture basis, with each game consisting of 2 x 25 minute halves. As we have already seen from the first 2 leagues, they are extremely fun and entertaining to be involved in. Although all of the players in VIP league are over 35, it has still been very competitive and physical. But as is the nature of the league, teams always end the game with handshakes, before heading into the clubhouse bar to enjoy some cold beers and a few laughs.
The league is schedule to be played every Friday from 6.00pm or 6.30pm at Planet Football Stadium. So why not come down and see yesterday’s stars (as some would have you believe) re-live their glory years on our new 4G pitch. Its great fun with an amazing atmosphere!
