Part 7

TAPIBAW No 31 - Fisher Athletic (England

It's all gone off here, as the Fish get battered in an away match at Merthyr last season. Your roving reporter was in the heart of London's dockland on Saturday to see the boys from Surrey Docks win their opening FA Cup game of the season 3-0 against Ashford Town.

The current Fish manager following on from such illustrious figures as Malcolm Allison is Keith "Rhino" Stevens, a cult player in his Millwall days. Stroll on. 

TAPIBAW No 32 - AC Siena (Italy)

To the scenic Tuscany region of Italy this time, and the Serie B side Siena, who have made a dreadful start to the new season with only one point from a goalless draw to show from their four games. Not surprisingly they're bottom of the league, along with fallen giants Sampdoria.

TAPIBAW No 33 - Lokomotiv Plovdiv (Bulgaria)

The club with the best crowd in Bulgaria says our contact Svetozar Georgiev, and let's face it, who are we to argue?

Plovdiv are currently 3rd in the Bulgarian League, behind Sofia giants Levski and CSKA. 

TAPIBAW No 34 - Hradec Kralove (Czech Republic)

Things haven't going too well for our latest set of spotlight kids, but after conceding 14 goals in their opening three games of the season, things have started to improve.

Four successive home wins without conceding a goal have seen them climb up to 11th spot (or 6th bottom in the old money.)

However, Hradec face a test this Sunday when they entertain current second-place side Bohemians of Prague. Rather bizarrely, Bohemians incorporate a kangaroo in their club badge, as a tribute to a gift one of their touring sides once returned with - that must have been a cracking tour; imagine having a few pints and waking up next to one of them the day after....

TAPIBAW No 35 - Moulton Magpies (England)

Hailing from the Northamptonshire village of Moulton, the Magpies have been in existence since 1996, when Sam Torpey established the club.

Our photo shows the prolific striker  Daniel Torpey, who had racked up 119 goals in only 127 games by the end of last season. Sadly it looks as if his magic touch is missing from the side this time out - presumably as he's now too old, unless he's discovered some new vices, like drink, girls or Championship Manager 2....
