A FEW WORDS...
FROM GAFFA & GOPHER This Badger Annual was published by: NEW LOGO
ello and welcome to the second Badger Annual. I hope it lives up to everyone’s new high expectations. Before we go any further we need to say a big thank you to Badger midfield legend Terry Percival, who as well as sponsoring the team for the last two seasons has also sponsored the annual, which means it remains totally free for all Badgers & Badger fans!

This time 12 months ago we had just about finished picking up the pieces of Gregs broken trophy, and although a little gutted we hadn’t finished top 2, we were still proud of what we’d achieved in our first season. A few months later and we were back at the ISFL AGM, and thanks to a large number of teams joining from the old Licensed Trades League, we found ourselves “relocated” from RM4 to RM3. We didn’t have the best start to the campaign, but we eventually found our feet and secured a solid mid-table position. We also had the now infamous cup run, regardless of what the SCFA have to say, you all fully deserved to be there. So much happened in that cup run, and no one can take away the
REMEMBER WHE N... ...CRAIG FELL IN THE STINGERS
It was towards the end of an epic Badger-style warm-up away to Stonham Athletic when a stray pass from Leeroy looked to be heading for the ditch. Before we even had chance to start thinking about how we were going to get the ball back captain marvel Craig sprung in to action. Although his intentions were good, and he did save the ball from being lost for ever, he did make an absolute tit of himself has he landed face down in some stinging nettles. Most people would have just jumped straight up, but the pain was too much, and Craig, resembling a beached whale, decided he’d just roll around in them for good measure!
way we all felt after Backhouse scored the winning penno in the semi, by far the best moment in our short history. Who know’s next season we could do it again, without breaking the rules this time! Once again we’d just like to take this opportunity to thank every single Badger for their efforts this season. Enjoy our look back over the season... It’s been emotional, as ever!
Up the Badgers!!

ompared to last year, the banter pit has been a bit quiet. There was plenty of match pictures that did receieve the odd funny comment or 3, but when you look back at the last 12 months on Facebook there’s one Badger picture that stands out by a mile! There were so many comments they had to be editted down, but don’t worry, we hope we’ve left the best bits in!

Badgers last home game of the season, and as is now tradition we drew positions out of the hat. Moe pulled out goalkeeper for the 2nd half, and looked set to be keeping a clean sheet on his goalkeeping debut. That was until the 90th minute when a tame shot trickled into the bottom corner to make the score 1-2. When asked why he hadn’t saved the shot, Moe replied “I can’t dive to my right” #hero2zero

It was the morning after the night before, and some rather hung over Badgers were making their way home after being snowed in following the Christmas party. After driving over 500 yards with the car making a horrific noise, Stiffy pulled up outside Seanâ€™s house to find he had a fl at tyre. No need to panic though, as Stone Cold Steve Austin, Yokozuna and the Big Show, still in their costumes from the night before were on hand to fit the spare tyre. Despite countless funny looks and a few blasts on the horn from passers by they got the job done and they were soon on their way home. No thanks to Sean, who couldnâ€™t be bothered to answer the front door and help.

ot many Sunday morning teams can boast their own press officer, but the Badgers aren’t just any old Sunday morning team! When Barrys not in the changing room trying to get a glimpse of Ross naked, he’s usually writting up our match reports ready for the paper the following week. Although we often wonder if he’s even been watching the same game as us, we all love it when he makes a simple tap in sound like a 30 yard screamer! I’m sure everyone will join me in thanking Barry for his efforts over the last two seasons, we’ll definately miss him next year. Fingers crossed our new secretary Danny Allen a.k.a Barry Junior or just BJ for short, can live up to expectations. Here’s a few snippets from this season match reports.
