Want to Play for Port FC? Here’s Your Chance!


Which of us, whilst standing on Zone B during a lull in the game, hasn’t dreamt of being out there on the pitch, clad in the hallowed orange & blue stripes, picking up the ball in midfield, skipping past a couple of defenders, laying the ball out to Ekkapoom on the left, making a run into the box and then watching as his cross goes sailing over our heads for a goal kick?


Well, now we have an opportunity to make that dream come true as the Port FC 2017 Academy is taking applications until the end of tomorrow (30 December). Obviously applicants need to be half decent at football, which I suspect rules out most Sandpit readers, and aged 18-20, which rules out the rest. Interestingly, Facebook translates the announcement as “interested in signing up to be a part of Leo?”, which I suspect would be of more interest to Sandpit regulars than actually playing for Port FC.


Anyway, in the unlikely event of anyone reading this being physically fit, good at football and younger than 20, you can apply to join the Port FC Academy here. Good luck!
