Bermuda Hogges kick off
It appears Bermuda Hogges official site
has ground to a halt, so Chicago Addick living in Bermuda
will now be your point of reference for all things Hogges! Well, in the words of one ex-Charlton manager.... p'raps, p'raps.
For those of you who have no clue what I am on about, the Bermuda Hogges are the island's very own semi-professional football team that compete in the USL Second Division
, the third tier of the American 'Soccer' Pyramid. The USL season has already kicked off and the Hogges' first game is away tonight at staunch rivals Crystal Palarse Baltimore
, the sister team of Croydon's finest, founded by the Orange one in 2006. Tickets are on sale on the night ($16!) so if you're in the area
, get your Addicks top and get down there!
With little or no apparent news on the Bermuda Hogges, I haven't therefore a clue how their pre-season went or who they have playing for them. I did read that the Hogges lost striker John Barry Nusum, one of their few full-time pros to Palarse Baltimore of all places but plan to sign Trinidad and Tobago's Marlon Rojas, a midfielder currently training on the island.
This is a list
of their league fixtures and I do plan to get across to the National Stadium this summer to see Bermuda's finest.Update Friday 10.30pm: Hogges lose to Palarse 2-0
