Park team suffers record 58-0 defeat

Nova 2010 FC suffered a crushing 58-0 defeat against local rivals Wheel Power FC in the Torbay Sunday League in Devon.

It started badly for Nova and got worse as they went in at the break losing 20-0 before conceding another 38 goals after the break.

It is believed that Wheel Power's win is the biggest on record, beating Cornish side Illogan's 55-0 demolition of Madron FC in November 2010.

Lewis Parker, a 60-year-old who plays for Nova 2010, said: "A lot of the players didn't turn up so we expected to lose but not by that much."

Nova arrived at the ground with just five players but they rounded up another four and played with nine men against the league leaders, who started with 10.

Brothers Robbie (27) and Stuart (21) Bowker were the heroes for Wheel Power as they scored 28 goals between them with Robbie finding the net 18 times and Stuart banging in 10.

Stuart said: "At 50-0 they'd had enough but the referee told them they must carry on playing or they would risk being fined.

"After the final whistle a couple of their players shook hands but the rest just got into their cars and drove off, but you can't really blame them for that.

"They weren't even bottom of the league."

Wheel Power's player-manager Andy Woodward added: "It was a bit embarrassing but fair play to the other team for carrying on - they were really sporting.

"The result will certainly help at the end of the season if it goes down to goal difference."

Nova 10 dropped to second bottom in the league after their defeat and now have a goal difference of -163.


APPARENTLY 57 OF THE GOALS WERE OFFSIDE!!!!!

We all wish them better luck in their next game
