Scilly Football League Featured In FIFA Magazine

St Mary’s two football teams are getting the glossy magazine treatment in the December edition of FIFA world, the football governing body’s official publication.

A four-page report, written and photographed during the opening match of the season, explains why the Woolpack Wanderers start their season of games against the Garrison Gunners as late as mid-October.

Former club chairman Chas Wood says it is because many players are employed in tourism during the season.

During the reporters’ visit, over a dozen men with cameras turned up at the Garrison pitch.

They weren’t there to watch the football but instead were birdwatching a rarity nearby.

The report describes 20-year-old player Daniel Ware as talented. He explains that when it is quiet in the winter and the tourists leave, the football gives him something to look forward to every Sunday.
