Pressure Mounts As World Tripe Day Approaches

The pressure on Blackpool South FC to maintain their unbeaten record in the Blackpool & District Youth League was mounting this week as they face tough opposition from fourth-placed FC Rangers Stripes in their fifth successive away game on Sunday 20 October.

Since the team were sponsored by the Tripe Marketing Board in the summer they haven't lost a match, pulling off a succession of away draws and an impressive away win in their first four matches of the season.

Speaking at a press conference in Preston earlier today, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle quipped: "These boys have played away so often that, if they were an over 18 team, I imagine their wives and girlfriends would have had something to say about it!"

As the inaugural World Tripe Day approaches on 24 October, Sir Norman called on the lads to make a "supreme effort" on Sunday to ensure they maintained their unbeaten record.  "We're as proud as punch of the way they've played away so far. We know they'll be making an extra effort on Sunday to maintain the good name of tripe, which they proudly wear on their chests."

As it stands in the Under 15's Beta League
Sir Norman dismissed rumours that the team had no home ground as "fanciful fluff" and put the blame squarely at the feet of the Blackpool & District Youth League for arranging fixtures that had repeatedly been cancelled.  "The good news for fans of tripe and Blackpool South FC is that the team has a clutch of games in hand.  Only top of the league AFC Blackpool and ourselves have an unbeaten record.  Tripe's day will come!" he pledged.
