The manager of a competitive Christian football team in Britain that has lost every single match it has played so far this season — conceding 120 goals in just 16 matches — says his team is losing because of the club's Christian principles, but he isn't sad about it.
In fact, the Amory Green Rovers FC, which is now the dregs of the division seven Devon & Exeter Football League, has been beaten 22-0 and 17-0 in two shocking games so far this season. But the team's manager Marc Hodsdon told the Express that he's consoled by the thought that his team could be the happiest group in the league, despite its dismal record.
"We are absolutely shocking to be fair. We could well be Britain's worst football team — but we are certainly the nicest," explained the 33-year-old manager. more >>
