Week 16 Preview
Mega-Bus and New Kits?
| It's week 16 of the Fantendo Football League and Flame-Scotland are playing Mega-Bus at the Dreamland Stadium. Over 5,000 Flame-Scotland fans are heading there. Flame-Scotland has won their last three and are looking for a forth win in a row. Flame-Scotland are also unbeaten in eight match - going back to a 3-2 defeat at the Flame Stadium to Moose FC. Flame-Scotland have had forty-eight players coming through the youth system since then.
—Clyde, Captain of Team Flame-Scotland
“We're on good form - we should win here. Mega-Bus haven't had a good season so far and we need to win.”
—Clyde1998 (t∣b∣c), Manager of Team Flame-Scotland
“We need to win. If we don't win here we won't with the league. They're not one of the league's strongest teams and we a rated one of the best. We've got a lot of new players coming through. Vlasi, Gautier, Carl and Ceallachán have all been playing. Marlen, Cadwgan, Fionnghall, Monroe, Gréagóir, Awstin and Aleksei have all been on the bench. We've got a lot off players pushing to get in the matchday squad. This can only be good for the team.”
Flame-Scotland have realised their new kits for Season Four:
The home kit is blue and orange - a change from the secondary white from previous years. Red again is used in a kit - this year being used in the away kit. The trim for this kit is orange. Cyan was chosen as the third kit colour with blue trim. A orange and red special kit was made for the Fantendo Football League Cup. If a team plays in orange then the Flames will play in their blue home kit. Flame-Scotland has chosen to have Pre-Season kits for this season. The Blue and White kit will be worn against Reading, Oxford and Swindon at the Flame Stadium and Aldershot at the Rec. It will be also used against Llanelli on the Welsh Tour. The blue and yellow kit will be worn at TNS. The red kit will be used against Bangor and Neath.
