Afro United Football Club


The club were founded on 2nd February, 2007 as East Sussex Plonkers during season 5, where only 10 games were played and The Muppets finishing in 4th place in 7. Division, Group 44. The next season (Season 6) was the first full season for The Muppets, who finished in a disapointing 12th spot in 6. Divison, Group 4; however due to the number of banned and inactive teams in the league, The Muppets were awarded 3rd place.

Climbing the League Ladder

Season 7, was one the most eventful seen at The Pilot Field, where a late surge saw The Muppets climb the tables after a slow start, and finished in the runners up spot behind Wymington Wanderers and saw them earn promotion to the league they currently sit in 4. Division, Group 5. During Season 8, they weren't able to keep up with fellow promoted team Wymington and had to settle for 6th spot. However during this season The Muppets won their first trophy, winning the Hastings Friendly League, in it's first season which it was set up. Season 9 saw the club finishing one place higher than what they managed the previous season in 5th spot and they managed to reach the 9th round of the english cup, the furthest the club have managed to reach so far.

Last Season

Season 10 was a fairly disapointing season for The Muppets, who were hopeful of pushing for a promotion spot, however a shakey start to the season saw them in a mid table postion half-way through the season, however a late surge, reminiscent of thier Season 7 campaign saw them in a promotion place, behind runaway leaders and fellow Hastings team Westfield Bohemians however, The Muppets weren't able to get the results they needed to stay in second place and ended up finishing 5th.

Plonkers No More, Get Out Your Afro Combs

On 6th May, 2007, it was decided that the club name shall be changed to Afro United, to suit the manager's ever so popualr hairstyle. New club colours and crest were selected, and the club look to climb the league ladder under their new name.

Shutting Up Shop?

As of September 2008, the manager Leon Pettit was at an all time low in confidence and motivation, he decided to leave Trophy Manager, putting as many players as he could up for sale and let the team become inactive during the next season and eventually deleted.

However in April 2009 Leon visited the Trophy Manager site again having seen the new updates made to the game and started to miss playing Trophy Manager, Afro United FC was reformed. With Leon starting fresh with much better knowledge of the game compared to when he first joined, confidence is within the club of rising the leagues again.
