Histalian Platinum League

Post by YingBlanc » July 25th 2014, 12:50 pm

[centre]==============================[/centre]

Welcome to the premier Histalian football association, the Platinum League, currently in it's 2014-15 season, and despite being already on week 10, for the first time we are giving AIN the chance to follow the season and all 23 teams.

Every Sunday we will do a recap of all the weeks football action from Monday to Sunday and see how it will effect the table. At the end of the season, 3 teams will continue onto the AFA Club League for 2015, while the bottom 3 will be relegated to Histalpol's League 1.

Last season we saw Darsingborough FC, Islington Wolves and Chorlington Town FC proceed to the AFA Club League, while we saw Sainte-Auban, Crickhowell A.F.C and F.C Marcou Rue all being relegated and replaced for this season with Feltham United, Greys Athletic F.C and Lincoln Eastend Athletic; Greys Athletic being the new-comer to the Platinum League after coming 2nd in League 1.

After 9 Weeks of play, the current table shows an unexpected drop of standards for Islington Wolves, dropping from 2nd to 4th between Chorlington Town which has crawled up a space and Lincoln City which boosted up from it's place in 6th last season. Meanwhile at the bottom, we have Lincoln Eastend Athletic, Deepweir AFC and Beddau Dragons. Could we see Lincoln Eastend Athletic drop out of the Platinum League one season in? Could we see another team topple the giants that are Daringborough and Islington Wovles? Week 10, comes on Sunday.

One bit of news we need to announce is that Sunday will be the start of the 3 week summer break, but in that time, feel free to get to know all 23 teams and pick who to support. Below are all the wiki articles you need to watch; See you on Sunday!

Darsingborough FC Fact File

Post by YingBlanc » July 25th 2014, 1:07 pm

[centre]Darsingborough FC
Image[/centre]

Wiki Article:http://aoin.eu/wiki/index.php?title=Darsingborough_FC

Darsingborough FC is one of the most celebrated and successful club in the Histalian Platinum League winning 9 titles which gives it the most league titles beside they're arch-rivals Islington Wolves. They are currently in their most successful period with 7 of their 9 titled being from 2002 to 2013. It was because of the win in 2013 which put it into the AFA Club League for 2013 alongside Islington Wolves and Chorlington Town FC in which they finished 11th behind Islington Wolves.

Platinum League History
The team was founded 1886 as the Association Sportive de Coronation Bridge Football Club (A.S Coronation Bridge F.C) but changed to Darsingborough F.C as they became the leading force of football around Darsingborough. They were one of the founding members of the Platinum League but have not played in every season, as they were relegated in the 92-93 season, soon to be promoted back in the next season 94-95.

AFA Club League History
During the 2013 AFA Club League, Darsingborough FC won 3, drew 2 and lost 4, accumulating with 11 points, exactly the same as Islington Wolves and Chorlington Town, but came 2nd of the 3 because of a -2 goal difference from 11 goals for them vs 13 goals against them. The Platinum League did not participate in the 2014 AFA Club League, but is expected to return for 2015, and at Darsingborough's current status, they will be the first Histalian team to play 2 times in the AFA Club League.

Current Squad
Inside their current roster, Histalpol has high-profile names such as Julian Sidi, who plays Forward for the Histalian national football team and Carson Ricci who also plays for Histalpol as a goal keeper. Other major names are Josémar Correia of the Atlantic Federation's national football team, Maxi Rodrigues in the reserves for the Argentinian national football team and the Cattalian captain, Salvatore Gardner. Also currently in the roster is Léo Noailles of France as the 2nd Captain and Valére Germain on loan from the French team AS Monaco FC.

Out of all the members in the squad, there are 12 who belong to an AIN nation, including 4 Histalians, 2 Cattalians, 2 New Duvians, 1 Croisian, 1 Verlantian, 1 Corrailian and a Lower Columbian.

Corby Steelers Fact File

Post by YingBlanc » August 19th 2014, 1:15 pm

[centre]Corby Steelers
Image[/centre]

Wiki Article:http://aoin.eu/wiki/index.php?title=Corby_Steelers_FC

Corby Steelers is a Platinum League club in the East Astonshire town of Corby, well known for it's history in Steel mills and Foundries. The team was founded in 1924 by the labourers of those Steel mills and Foundries as well as labourers from surrounding towns. It took them until 1936 to enter into Histalian League 1, which at the time was the highest tier in Histalian football and at that time, the team still contained a few of the original labourers who had become footballers full-time as well as house-hold names for the working class and stayed in League 1 until WW2.

During WW2, the city of Corby and surrounding areas were destroyed by the Axis forces to get rid of all the steel mills and foundries and many of the workers died in the rein of the Axis Forces on Beracha Glas. The end of the war brought about the reconstruction of Corby and East Astonshire but the losses were felt by the Corby Steelers whose entire team had been dismantled by the rein. Newer players not connected to the still healing Corby city attempted to keep the team in League 1, but ultimately failed and the team plummeted to the County level of football in East Astonshire, the largest drop of any football team in Histalpol down 3 leagues. Thus the slow climb back up to Platinum League started which is in itself one of the legendary stories of Histalian football.

Platinum League History
The story of the climb from the Corby Steelers from the county level competitions to the Platinum League is one of the most legendary in Histalian football and ends in the 2004-2005 season in which they were promoted to the Platinum League after getting 2nd in Histalian League 1, but was soon to end in disaster again as they were relegated, dropping one space to last place in the Platinum League. From that one time appearance, they dwelled between 4th and 10th in League 1 until finally, again in the 2007-2008 season, they became champions of League 1 and were promoted for the 08-09 season to the Platinum League, and this time they made it stick, and have been with the Platinum League since then, floating about from 10th-20th.

Current Squad
Unlike the original squad made of all Histalians and local workers turned into footballers, the 21st century squad contains a dynamic mix of Histalian, English and foreign players, all of which have never even set foot in a Steel mill or Foundry. The most known of the squad for foreign players is it's Govish Captain of Michel Loew.

Results from Game Week 11:

And with the Summer Break finished, a weeks worth of games have happened to make everybody equal at 14 games each. There has been a few movements that has effected the middle of the table but the top and bottom appear to be the same for the end of this week, let's see how next week will play out and see if the might of Darsingborough FC can be toppled by Chorlington town or even the surprising East Sivonshire County that is only 1 point off the top 2 and advanced from 7th place gained last season.

Thanks CM, I can very much say I have never been so thrilled and enthralled by sports in my entire life, I am loving this League xD

Results from Game Week 12:

A weeks worth of games has past and now all but Honywood Lane have completed 15 games. After this week, we have a new leader on top, leading by 1 point and that is East Sivonshire County, the team that has seemed to come out of nowhere, but with only 1 point in it and the 2nd and 3rd place nipping at it's heels, can it stay there for another week?

Other news is that the bottom 3 looking at relegation at the end of the series has not changed, but Feltham United has very much made itself safe from dipping into 21st by gaining 2 places up to 18th, matching ESC's climb of 2 spots. Other climbs include Rydal United, NB Olympic, Corby Steelers and Surbiton Rovers.

Also this week was the clash of the titans, Chorlington Town and Darsingborough FC, 2nd and 3rd on the tables at the start and end of this week. Their match on Thursday did not disappoint with 2 scores a piece and a close game at that with Darsingborough scoring the equalising goal 2 minutes before the end of the game.

Here are the links you need to check out for Week 11:

    - Surbiton Rovers up 1 to 15th
    - Feltham United up 2 to 18th

I'm not feeling as motivated today, but I'll try to do what I can for this week ^^ the quality of these might go down as Uni kicks in, but at least it will get finished and you will get links to every weeks results table at the very least.

Results from Game Week 13:

Some large scores this week, with a lot of games breaking the 5 combined goals barrier. The biggest winners this week for goal scoring are Brigstone and Islington Wolves, a fine form for both of them giving them both 4-0 results against Lincoln Eastend Athletic and Caldicot respectively. As for movements in the table, I can say now that the fight for the top 3 is just heating up as Darsingborough and Chorlington Town capitalise on East Sivonshire County's draw this week to drop them down back to 3rd, but still with 1 point in it for all of them to move around next week in the top 3.

Meanwhile in the middle, it's pandemonium as; Brigston boosts up the table 2 spots, Honywood Lane gains one spot pushing Baso Blackberry Lane from 8 to 9 and NB Olympic dropping 2 spaces replaces by Raeburn Town and Corby Steelers.

At the very bottom there is again movement on the cusp of the Relegation zone, with Feltham United, Greater Torringham and FC Londis drop a place to allow Bertin Wings to be the largest mover of this week, advancing 3 spaces. Also keep an eye on Deepweir AFC as they are drawn on points with Lincoln Eastend Athletic and could be moving out of the Relegation zone with as little as a win and a draw on Weeks 14 and 15. Right down at the bottom still is Beddau Dragons who have not played this week and will join Honywood Lane in the equalising "Super Weekend" when we reach Week 15.

Here are the links you need to check out for Week 13

http://aoin.eu/wiki/index.php?title=201 ... ldid=39164

Movements in Week 13:
  • - East Sivonshire County down 2 to 3rd
    - Brigstone up 2 to 7th
    - NB Olympic down 2 to 12th
    - Bertin Wings up 3 to 16th

Thank you Fox, I am thoroughly enjoying doing this, it's a nice break away from the usual AIN stuff I tend to do ^^ I do believe I'm becoming more sports orientated for sure.

Results from Game Week 14:

Not much movement this week in terms of the results table, but we have had some major events this week which have dramatically altered the positions. Starting across Monday and Tuesday with ESC vs Darsingborough taking place on Monday giving us a 0-0 draw, and Chorlington Town made up on that draw to drag itself to 1st past Darsingborough FC with their 3-2 win against Corby Steelers.

Another match-up which has been affected by the draw rules is Lincoln City and Islington Wolves, the latter benefiting from the match between Lincoln City and Raeburn Town later in the week ending in a draw of 1-1, which makes Islington Wolves' win against Lincoln Eastend Athletic at 0-3 move them above Lincoln City from 5th to 4th and closing in on 3rd place ESC.

Here are the links you need to check out for Week 1
