Tudor Arms FC – Publaget som väntar på Sheringhams debut
Seniorserierna i de lägre divisionerna har smugit igång så smått och nu sätter vi även igång vår presentation av lagen i dessa serier under rubriken "Laget bakom namnet". Först ut är Tudor Arms FC som har fått sitt namn efter den engelska puben på Östermalm.
När bildades laget?
The Tudor Arms FC was formed in 1970
Varför bildades laget?
The club was formed so that English speaking football players would have their own team to play for in the Stockholm league.
Hur bildades laget?
The club was started by a group of originals who met and became friends through the Tudor Arms Pub. From there they decided to start their own team and through the sponsorship of the pub started the football club in 1970. Today we are still sponsored by the Tudor Arms Pub and are represented by 3 teams.
Hur fick laget sitt namn och hur kom klubbmärket till?
Both our name and emblem come direct from the Tudor Arms Pub.
Central Stockholm (Stadshagen IP). The lads are coming from all over Stockholm to play for the club. Therefore it is important we are as close to the city centre as possible.
Vilket mål har laget med verksamheten?
To provide a football club for anyone new to Stockholm. To be competitive and social whilst helping the new lads integrate into Stockholm life.
Har laget eller har laget haft några kända profiler?
No one that has every played for the club. However, Teddy Sherringham (when he played for Djurgården) used to frequent the pub and did promise the lads he would play a game for the club. However, he went onto several bigger clubs.
Lagets största framgång?
Stockholm Cup (2018/2019) - last 16.
Mest minnesvärda match eller händelse?
Every match. We used to have some great matches between both SUS and Gamla Karlberg in the old days.
Our veterans team has won their league for the last 2 seasons.
Finns det något mer att berätta om laget?
We have lost count of the number of nationalities that have represented the club. From the core of England, Ireland and Scotland, to New Zealand and Australia on the other side of the world. I would say we have had over 25 different nationalities that have represented the club.
And next year we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary as a club. Not a bad achievement for a pub team.
Vi tackar James Richards för svaren! Vi passar även på att önska laget lycka till under säsongen och i säsongspremiären mot IK Sture på fredagskvällen kl. 20.00 på Zinkensdamms IP mot IK Sture.
