1000th Game

Champagne was flowing this week as the Callista Steampackets held a function to celebrate their 1000th match.

“Issa very special hic!casion,” said an obviously affected, tired and emotional President Adrian Dillon, while making his speech at an open bar event at the Steampacket clubrooms.

“Now look,” he said, microphone in one hand and glass of bubbly in the other. “Look. Looklooklook. Shh. Shh. Shh. Shhhh. I have something very important to tell you all. Shhh Shhh. Sssssvery important. It is. Shhhh! I… Love… You… All… I do… and that’s not just the champers talking, cos I really really really do. Reallyreally. Some people have said the Steampackets were all washed up, and said we were… were milking a dead horse… but I say they don’t know how much… how much love there is right here in this room. YEAH!”

At this point in his speech, Dillon fell off the stage and was not seen again until the next afternoon.

It’s true that, until recently, fears were high that the Steampackets would revert to nothing more than a couple of try-hard software company employees kicking a ball around a council garden. But World Cup fever, mixed with a heavy marketing campaign, has lifted the Steampackets back to the heady heights of its earlier days. Attendance has been as high as ever, and with the Ladies Day reunion match just around the corner (on the 22nd of September) it’s looking to be another great year for the Steampackets.

If you would like to play with a bunch of hungover football legends, then come to Steampacket Park on Tuesdays and Fridays.
