Having practiced only four weeks prior to tournaments three guys (Chris Zimmer – now in Seoul / Korea for Lufthansa, Thorsten Sierski – still with Rieckermann Philippines and Michael Scheile – still with Veltrup Philippines) decided beginning of 2005 to start a team playing regularly at the Nomad Sports Club in Merville / Paranaque. Inititially players had to be called up to confirm that at least six football enthusiasts show up. We played every Tuesday.
Nowadays, there are 46 players (including two ladies) on the list. However, this includes former players who have been transferred to other countries but like to keep in touch with the team. The intention to play and thurst for a beer (or two) after the practice make us a social team with great camaraderie. Usually around 15 – 25 people show up for about 1- 1 1/2 hours playing
We usually play four tournaments (at Nomads) and some friendly matches a year:
March / April:
Hoffenheim Supporters until last year and / or the Easter Tournament of the German All Stars Bangkok;
Manila Mini World Cup (the only tournament without age restrictions – for our “younger” team mates – as we prefer Vets which is 40 years and above);
Jim Howard Cup (part of the International 7-A-Side);
pBlue Guards, German School Teachers’ Team, Bilibid Medium Security Prison and visiting teams from Germany.
German Club or just show up at the British School on a Monday at 8pm.
