Shanghai Lions Football Club

[SPL News] 4 rounds to go! The heat is on!

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,

The heat arrived early this year in Shanghai ! 32 degrees in the first week of May ! Glad to see that it didn’t influence the entertainment level of the SPL games as we could record 26 goals.

We are getting closer to the end of the SPL Championship and we could see a decision at the top if the Hawks win and Hard Days Night will lose this coming Sunday. Lions/Flamenkos/ERS/Pistolera Bulls will battle for the sub top spots, Japan looks stuck in the middle and the Cowboys/Galacticos/Super 48 can fight it out in the bottom.

SPL Goal scorers list is heating up as well !

  1. Peter     18 (Hard Days Night)
  2. Joshue   17 (Flamenkos)
  3. Nils        16 (Pistolera Bulls)
  4. Joel        15 (Lions)
  5. Julien     13 (ERS)
  6. Yamada   1 (Japan)


  •  Lions-Japan 3-0 This was the youngest Lions line up ever with four 16 year old players. Within 20 minutes the Lions had a 2-0 lead. Japan tried to fight back but were denied a few times by the young goalkeeper. Second half Japan changed most of their team but found the Lions back controlling the game. Joel sealed the victory with a penalty kick.
  • ERS – Super 48 9-0 ERS has the best defense of the SPL this season and they were motivated to keep a clean sheet. Early goals killed the game and after 60 minutes it was 9-0. More than enough to slow down the game for the last half and hour / Julien scored a double hattrick !
  • Flamenkos – Hawks 2-7 Flamenkos were handicapped by their missing strikers Joshue and Joost as well their squad looked to0 thin with only one substitute in the heat. For half an hour the game was even but once the first Hawks goal was netted it was more and more difficult for the Flamenkos as they started to run low on energy ! Hawks now have 29 different goal scores this season !
  • Galacticos – Cowboys 5-0 An important game for both teams as they are trying to fight it out in the bottom of the SPL. With the return of Ned the Galacticos were playing their best game of the season. He scored three goals and finally the could party after a 5-0 victory !

Three games this coming Sunday :

  •  1000-1200 Flamenkos – Cowboys
  •  1200-1400 Hawks – Super 48
  •  1400-1600 Hard Days Night – E.Rouge

Enjoy the last rounds and the ice cold beers after the games !

Cheers Freek SPL President /  on behalf of the SPL Committee !
