Come On You Woolpack Wanderers!
by Brian Phillips · November 12, 2007
This is a story the press seems to come back to every once in a while, but I can’t tell you how much I love the thought of the world’s smallest football league, made up of two teams on the island of St. Mary’s who play one another over and over again. They play a regular league season, including a Charity Shield. They’re in the Telegraph today, the Woolpack Wanderers and the Garrison Gunners, in a piece that includes the story of the referee who red-carded his own linesman, and the story of a rugby league that only has one club. If the Isles of Scilly had a Setanta link, I think I’d watch this every week.
