TAPIBAW No 46 - Koge Boldklub (Denmark)
||Three for the price of one
this time out, as we focus on Danish club Køge Boldklub and their ever-
Køge is a short distance to the South of Copenhagen and have high hopes
of making it to the Danish Superleague (their equivalent of the
Premiership), currently lying top of the First Division.)
TAPIBAW No 47 - Sleights AFC (England)
||To the Yorkshire Coast now,
and the boys from Sleights FC, who play in the Scarborough and District
First Division alongside the likes of Fishburn Park and Filey Town.
We've been assured that their current lowly league position isn't as a
result of the players over-indulging in the shirt sponsor's Magpie
Cafe in Whitby (Special Fish Platter coming highly recommended.) Thanks

see their side crumble 4-2 at the hands of Lazio, there were no slip ups as
Juve travelled to Udinese.
A large support from Turin saw their heroes triumph 2-0 in the Friuli
stadium, which along with the Inter scoreline was enough to claim a 26th
Roma sneaked up into 2nd place thanks to a 1-0 win at Torino, but were
unable to retain their title. They now go straight into the group stage of
the Champions League, leaving both Milan clubs to face a two-legged
TAPIBAW No 50 - Penzance (England)
the ends of the earth, or Cornwall anyway, as we bring up the TAPIBAW
half-century with a regal wave of the bat and a raised helmet (!)
Our spotlight today falls on the Magpies of Penlee Park, a ground which itself
is celebrating it's 50th anniversary this year, and which was opened in August
1952 by Sir Stanley Rous.
Penzance themselves have been in existence since 1888 and were founder members
of the Cornwall FA. Their centenary season saw them play host to another side
founded in 1888 - Glasgow Celtic, while Liverpool also visited for a friendly.
Currently in the Carlsberg South Western League, they secured a final finish
in sixth spot, but like the rest of the league were no match for Champions St.Blazey,
