The brand-new season in the best community 6 a side football league in South Reading kicked off last night, and it was Gerry Had A Dream who put down an early marker.

GHAD thumped The A Team 7-0 with Eddie Waldron amongst the goals, but they weren’t the only team in seventh heaven as the games took place on the wonderful new pitch at South Reading Leisure Centre.

Reading Rejects went goal crazy against 5 Loko, thumping them 7-2 but Georgio Villa did notch a consolation for the losers, which suggests they could improve their fortunes in coming weeks. Area Manager Ben Schumann admitted he was delighted with the kick off and added: “It’s great to see these teams in the Leisure Leagues family, and this is just the start. This league will going from strength to strength in the coming weeks.”

Ben added that he was expecting to add another new division soon and thanked everyone at South Reading LC for their help: “We view it very much as a partnership,” said n. “That’s very much been the case here and things are so much better with that level of support. “

Teams will now be playing for a range of things, including a spot in the Leisure Leagues Prize Draw – which is incorporated into the Leisure Leagues Live TV Show, which is broadcast on social media on the first Tuesday of every month.

That is for the future though, next week is all about league points as as the early leaders, Gerry Had A Dream take on Westwood Blazers and the two teams on the end of the big beatings this week 5 Loko and A Team face off.
