Welcome to the South Easy
Well we’re steaming ahead towards the start of the new football season, and what better way to welcome it in then by launching the inaugural 273 Fantasy Football league. As the overpaid Premier League stars rake their grassy studs up each others shins, a gang of underpaid UK artists will be putting their faith in their own football knowledge in the quest to take the title.
If you think you should be considered for entry into the competition, drop us an email (The address can be found HERE) The season kicks off on the 14th August, so there ain’t a great deal of time to go. Lets throw a spotlight on the first entries to the league:
Team: Illwood Kings
Veteran of the UK scene, Koaste has worked with First Down, Black Grass & Dr Syntax amongst others, as well as being a major contributor to The273.com. Although his supported team, Brighton & Hove Albion lie two divisions below the Premier League, Koaste has good pedigree in these competitions.
Name: Herbie Dragons
Team: Bucka Juniors
Deejay for the Genius Squad and Ramblers Association, Herbie Dragons loyalties are with Liverpool, and will be looking to perform a little better than Rafa Benitez’ men did last season. Maybe the appearance of Roy Hodgson at Anfield can propel his presumably full quota of reds up the table.
Name: Legs MC aka Lloyd Lewery
Team: Howling Pack
Fulham supporting Legs has been writing and recording for various labels for a good few years, and has worked with producers including Skint Records/Warp Records Req1. Obviously Roy Hodgson’s exit for Anfield has hit hard, and we’ll have to see whether the confidence in the Cottagers’ players remains.
Name: HP aka Ewan Hood
Team: Lets Get It In
Owner of RareKind Records in Brighton, Tottenham supporting HP spends his days supplying heads all over the country with rare releases. One of the top seeds for this years league, he’ll be hard to beat with his ‘Arry Redknapp type wheeling and dealing a good look in a competition like this.
More profiles will be popping up as the season draws closer. Remember, send me an email if you want to test your skills and get involved.
