Euro 2004 Footy Jam!
Plans for this year's 7 a-side cup competition are well under way. The Cup has evolved from The Looney Left Cup which began back in 1997, and has been held at least once every year since, in various guises, The Mayday Cup, Clissold Cup etc. This year the competition will be held smack bang in the middle of summer to coincide with Euro 2004, in North London, on Sunday 13th June. (venue to be confirmed). As usual it will be hotly contested, although the main emphasis of the competition is always fun and friendship. As well as the 7 a-side competition, we'll have a kids match, picnic, and a lovely cup for the winners to take home. Teams confirmed so far include: Recreativo, Sons Of Recreativo, International Bastards, Bradbury Massive Internationale, Poodle Chaos, The Strollers, North South Divide, Dynamo Semtex, Urban 75 and Stockwell Diablos.

Recreativo V Poodle Chaos 4 - 1 18.4.04
A combatable win for the the Red and Orange over the boys from Clapham in this end of season friendly. Goals from Matt Jeary, Adam Bradbury and Hersh ensured victory, and our unbeaten run against The Chaos stays intact. We're lining up an away fixture against this lot for May. Also have a friendly against Urban 75 in the next month or so, and have been invited to Hamburg in the new season to play against a team of St.Pauli fans. Midweek training starts in a few weeks...... what happened to that summer break eh ?
Super Sunday Super League
The season is now finished, and unfortuenatly we finished bottom. With Hackney Marshans winning their final two games, it is us that go home with the wooden spoon. It's been a long hard slog, this our first year in the league, tho' has been a great experience which we've all mostly enjoyed. We now have a long break until next season, when we'll be raring to go and aim to improve on this year's standing.
We're now back in Clissold park Sunday mornings for our regular mob football, and are looking forward to some relaxing games during the summer months. We always welcome new faces for a kickabout. Recreativo's midweek training sessions will start in the coming weeks, and details will be posted when confirmed. A big thanks go to all those who have turned out in the infamous red and orange this season. We look forward to doing it all again in a few months time. Viva Recreativo! Viva el' Futbol!
